KeyStone Center - Providence Ave. is a private rehab located in Chester, Pennsylvania. KeyStone Center - Providence Ave. specializes in the treatment of substance, drug and alcohol abuse.

KeyStone Center - Providence Ave. Focus:

Substance Abuse

Substance Abuse Treatment Centers focus on helping individuals recover from substance abuse, including alcohol and drug addiction (both illegal and prescription drugs). They often include the opportunity to engage in both individual as well as group therapy.

Opiate Addiction

Opiate Addiction Treatment Centers specialize in supporting those recovering from opioid addiction. They treat those suffering from addiction to illegal opioids like heroin, as well as prescription drugs like oxycodone. These centers typically combine both physical as well as mental and emotional support to help stop addiction. Physical support often includes medical detox and subsequent medical support (including medication), and mental support includes in-depth therapy to address the underlying causes of addiction.


The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence. Those with poor social support, poor motivation, or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse within a few years of treatment. For these people, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health, and improved social functioning. Recovery and Maintenance are usually based on 12 step programs and AA meetings.

Rehab Services:

Medically Assisted Detox

Drug and alcohol addiction often takes a heavy toll on one’s body. Over time, a physical dependence can develop, meaning the body physiologically needs the substance to function. Detox is the process of removing drugs and/or alcohol from the body, a process that can be lethal if mismanaged. Medical detox is done by licensed medical professionals who monitor vital signs and keep you safe, healthy, and as comfortable as possible as you go through detox and withdrawal.

Buprenorphine Detox and Treatment

KeyStone Center offers Subutex as part of the detox protocol for opiate dependent patients. Detox with Subutex requires a face-to-face evaluation with a specially licensed physician. Subutex provides relief from mild to moderate opiate withdrawal. A tapering dose is provided over a 5 to 8 day period.

Psychotropic Medication

Psychotropic medications (aka psychodynamic medication) are any medicines used specifically to affect and/or alter a patient’s mind, emotions, and behaviors. Such psychiatric medicines are often used to change chemical levels in the brain that impact a person’s mood and behavior. These medications include mood stabilizers, antidepressants, anti-ADHD drugs, and anti-anxiety medications.

What does KeyStone Center - Providence Ave. offer?

24 Hour Clinical Care

At certain points in the recovery process, it’s important to have support available 24/7. 24-hour clinical care offers a safe environment in which to recover from drug or alcohol addiction in peace, knowing medical detox and other treatment will happen with professionals on hand.

Residential (inpatient) Treatment

Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment. Rehab facilities that offer residential treatment allow patients to focus solely on recovery, in an environment totally separate from their lives. Some rehab centers specialize in short-term residential treatment (a few days to a week or two), while others solely provide treatment on a long-term basis (several weeks to months). Some offer both, and tailor treatment to the patient's individual requirements.

Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

Many of those suffering from addiction also suffer from mental or emotional illnesses like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, or anxiety disorders. Rehab and other substance abuse facilities treating those with a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder administer psychiatric treatment to address the person’s mental health issue in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

Treatment Types:


12-step programs are addiction recovery models based on Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). A number of substance abuse programs (including some drug and alcohol rehab centers) use the 12 steps as a basis for treatment. Beginning steps involve admitting powerlessness over the addiction and creating a spiritual basis for recovery. Middle steps including making direct amends to those who've been hurt by the addiction, and the final step is to assist others in addiction recovery in the same way. 12-Step offshoots including Narcotics Anonymous (NA), Cocaine Anonymous (CA), Dual Recovery Anonymous (DRA), Sex & Love Addicts Anonymous (SLAA) and Gamblers Anonymous (GA).

Family Program

Addiction does not operate in a vacuum. It is a problem that very much impacts not only the addict but also anyone who cares about the addict. It is important, therefore, to treat not only the addict but the entire family. KeyStone Center’s Family Therapy Program offers patients and their families a chance to work on family issues while the client is in treatment. Family members are given an opportunity to discuss how the addiction has impacted the family and issues that may have been “swept under the rug” are brought out and clarified. Patients are offered support before, during, and after the family sessions by means of group and individual therapy.

Therapies Offered:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT is based on the theory that learning processes play a critical role in the development of unhealthy patterns linked with mental health and substance abuse problems. It is used to help clients identify and correct problematic or destructive behaviors by applying a variety of different coping/relapse prevention skills, and evaluate and change unhelpful or self-defeating thought processes that are negatively influencing a client’s emotions or behaviors. CBT consists of a collection of methods intended to enhance a person’s self-control. Specific techniques include exploring the positive and negative consequences of self-defeating thinking or using drugs and alcohol, self-monitoring to recognize drug cravings early on and to identify high-risk situations for use, and developing strategies for coping with and avoiding high-risk situations and the desire to use.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a modified form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a treatment designed to help people understand and ultimately affect the relationship between their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. DBT is often used for individuals who struggle with self-harm behaviors, such as self-mutilation (cutting) and suicidal thoughts, urges, or attempts. It has been proven clinically effective for those who struggle with out-of-control emotions and mental health illnesses like Borderline Personality Disorder.

Individual Therapy

In individual therapy, a patient meets one-on-one with a trained psychologist or counselor. Therapy is a pivotal part of effective substance abuse treatment, as it often covers root causes of addiction, including challenges faced by the patient in their social, family, and work/school life.

Experiential Therapy

Experiential therapy is a form of therapy in which clients are encouraged to surface and work through subconscious issues by engaging in real-time experiences. Experiential therapy departs from traditional “talk therapy” by involving the body, and having clients engage in activities, movements, and physical and emotional expression. This can involve role-play or using props (which can include other people). Experiential therapy can help people process trauma, memories, and emotion quickly, deeply, and in a lasting fashion, leading to substantial and impactful healing.

Motivational Interviewing

Motivational Interviewing is a person-centered, collaborative, form of guiding to elicit strategies for change, by helping people explore their ambivalence toward dealing with problems and resolving this uncertainty. Motivational interviewing acknowledges and accepts the fact that people who need to make changes in their lives approach counseling at different levels of readiness of change. It provides a non-judgmental and non-confrontational approach used to increase a person’s awareness of a problem’s cause, its risks, and its impact on their lives.

KeyStone Center - Providence Ave. Highlights:

An important treatment objective of the KeyStone Center - Providence Ave. is to assist the client in understanding the process involved in practically applying recovery principles in order to enhance and improve quality of life. Most patients, upon admission, feel spiritually bankrupt and empty. The clinical staff prioritizes relationships in a patient’s life: relationship with self, Higher Power, and others.
