St. Joseph's Institute for Addiction offers recovery for adults struggling with drug alcohol addiction. Their 30-day inpatient program has proven success. St. Joseph Institute is located in Port Matilda, Pennsylvania.

Overview:

St. Joseph's Institute is committed to being the leading addiction treatment and detox center in Pennsylvania. Their goal is to be recognized as a place where people will receive quality care from a staff that is passionate about helping people overcome their addiction.

Located on a beautiful mountain-side in central Pennsylvania (near State College and Altoona), their campus promotes healing. Elegant log and stone lodges, miles of walking trails, a spa and wellness center, gym, library, chapel and very private grounds all contribute to a successful recovery experience. Their clinical staff has advanced training and years of experience.

The Institute’s amenities make Residents feel like they are in an exclusive, executive rehab with the relaxed atmosphere of a resort. The Wellness Center has a spacious atrium with skylights and special features such as a computerized massage bed, Jacuzzi, saunas, and a pool. The great room of the Hospitality House, with a massive fireplace, has a ceiling that peaks at an incredible 38 feet. Construction was to the highest standard, ranking St. Joseph Institute as the best drug rehabilitation treatment center in the region.

They offer bodywork, exercise, and physical therapy to promote healing, relaxation, and a greater sense of well-being. Bodywork facilitates healing and growth because it allows the therapist to identify and release significant issues that are held within the tissue of the body, revealing unconscious or long-forgotten memories that are interfering with current thoughts, feelings or behaviors. Substance abuse treatments are much more efficient when these memories are brought to the surface. Many dysfunctional conditions are relieved or completely healed through various types of massage and specialized treatments such as Essential Acupressure, Neurofascial Release and Structural Alignment.

They address current medical conditions, as well as structural misalignments and imbalances that may be contributing to the addictive process or any co-occurring disorders. Other assessments through means such as blood and urine testing, hair analysis, allergy testing and nutritional evaluation is also important.

The place is very nice, the nurses are great and understanding but the therapists and everyone else treats you very badly, they are very rude, no matter if you are sick or not. I looked for this place to have help but it was the last thing I could have found.

Not a day goes by that I'm not grateful for this place. St. Joseph's is the best place for healing. Being here I felt free, I felt like I had a new beginning not like I was forced to be there. The programs are top notch and the staff is the best in the whole world. They saved my life in the most gentle and effective way possible.

This is a really great facility, safe, comfortable and a lot of educational material to fill in those things I never learned to deal with as an addict like coping mechanisms and handling of emotions and such. They don't skimp on things like the other rehabs I've been in. The bedrooms are nice, with real beds, and the food in more like dinner and home than a cafeteria.

Detox Services:

Medication-Assisted Treatment:

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is the use of medications along with counseling and therapy to treat substance abuse. MAT is mainly used to treat opioid addictions (i.e. heroin and/or prescription drugs like OxyContin or Vicodin). Medications like buprenorphine are used in MAT to help normalize brain chemistry, block the effects of alcohol and/or opioids, relieve cravings, and stabilize body functions, making sobriety easier to maintain. All medications used are approved by the FDA, and every MAT program is tailored to the patient’s specific needs.

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.

Buprenorphine Detox:

Buprenorphine (brand name Subutex, among others) is an opioid medication used to treat opioid addiction. Buprenorphine can prevent or significantly reduce withdrawal symptoms, making it easier to get and stay off opioids. Sometimes used alongside naloxone, dosage depends on the severity of each case. Many people stay on buprenorphine long-term, although some gradually reduce the dosage to come off it.

Vivitrol:

Vivitrol is an injectable prescription medicine used to treat alcohol and opioid dependence. Administered only with medical approval, VIVITROL blocks opioid receptors in the brain, which helps reduce cravings and prevent relapse. VIVITROL is non-addictive and extended-release, so it only needs to be taken once a month. Before starting VIVITROL, you must be opioid-free for at least 7-10 days in order to avoid sudden opioid withdrawal symptoms.

Naltrexone:

Naltrexone is an FDA-approved medication used to treat opioid and alcohol addiction. Naltrexone helps reduce cravings and prevent relapse, making recovery easier. It comes either in pill form (ReVia, Depade), taken once a day; or in an injectable form (Vivitrol), administered monthly. Patients must not have any illegal opioids or opioid medication in their system for at least 7-10 days before starting naltrexone (this includes methadone, so if you’re switching from methadone to naltrexone, you must wait until your system is clear).

Level of Care:

Individualized Treatment:

Most rehabs offering help with addiction have an identical program for every person, as if the underlying issues that drive drug addiction and alcohol addiction are the same for everyone. They believe this “one size fits all” approach fails to meet the needs of many people. By recognizing each person's physical, mental, emotional and spiritual issues, they seek to find resolution to underlying problems and achieve better outcomes. You never become a “number” at St. Joseph Institute rehab in PA.

Holistic Treatment:

Overcoming addiction is about reclaiming your life and making it better. The Institute's alcohol & drug abuse rehab program provides the opportunity to achieve a level of wellness that few people experience. They will be concerned about your physical and mental health, offering program options for those with chronic pain, PTSD or trauma. Their proven methods of treatment and state-of-the-art techniques are brought together in a holistic approach that heals the whole person – body, mind, emotions and spirit.

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.

Aftercare Support:

A critical aspect of the recovery process is preparing for the next step -- living a better life that is drug and alcohol free. Together they will develop a plan for the future, coordinating the support necessary to help you stay clean and sober. In the months and years ahead they will be here to help, offer advice, support and encouragement as you journey forward.

Intensive Outpatient:

Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) are for those who want or need a very structured treatment program but who also wish to live at home and continue with certain responsibilities (such as work or school). IOP substance abuse treatment programs vary in duration and intensity, and certain outpatient rehab centers will offer individualized treatment programs.

12-Step:

The objective of our residential treatment center is to introduce residents to the benefits of participating in 12-Step programs for alcohol & drug abuse support such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA). 12-step programs are addiction recovery models based on Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). Twelve-step groups assume an active role in the process of recovery, and in so doing, address three dimensions of the human person: physical, mental and spiritual.

Inpatient:

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.

Religious Programs:

The Institute is built on Christian, non-denominational principles -- welcoming people of all faith backgrounds. As a Christian rehab center, they will support your spiritual development -- without imposing specific beliefs --to help you re-discover a sense of purpose. Connecting with their religion can provide patients a strong foundation for addiction recovery, and inspire comfort, support, and guidance in a deep, meaningful way.

Partial Hospitalization Program:

A partial hospitalization program (PHP) is a short-term form of intensive rehab, usually for those with acute symptoms that are hard to manage but don’t require 24-hour care. PHPs have structured programming (i.e. individual and/or group therapy), and usually meet 3-5 days a week for around 6 hours (i.e. 9am-3m). Some PHPs are residential (patients sleep on site) and some are not, so patients sleep at home. PHPs can last from 1-6 months, and some offer transportation and meals.

Medically Assisted Detox:

The objective of their rehab center in Pennsylvania The comfortable, relaxed setting helps their residents move quickly through their detox process with minimal discomfort. Carefully supervised by their medical team and Medical Director who is Board Certified in Addiction Medicine, they use a combination of medications and natural treatments that are fast, safe and effective.

Treatment Focus:

Opioid Addiction:

Opioid rehabs 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.

Alcoholism:

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.

Mental Health and Substance Abuse:

A combined mental health and substance abuse rehab has the staff and resources available to handle individuals with both mental health and substance abuse issues. It can be challenging to determine where a specific symptom stems from (a mental health issue or an issue related to substance abuse), so mental health and substance abuse professionals are helpful in detangling symptoms and keeping treatment on track.

Therapy Programs:

Rational Behavior Therapy:

Rational Behavior Therapy (RBT) is a form of cognitive behavioral therapy meant to be short-term and comprehensive. It was intended to help clients become more self-sufficent and move forward without the need for expensive, ongoing therapy. It includes an emotional self-help method called “rational self-counseling,” the purpose of which is to give clients all the skills needed to handle future emotional issues by themselves, or with significantly less professional help.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a therapy modality that focuses on the relationship between one's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It is used to establish and allow for healthy responses to thoughts and feelings (instead of unhealthy responses, like using drugs or alcohol). CBT has been proven effective for recovering addicts of all kinds, and is used to strengthen a patient's own self-awareness and ability to self-regulate. CBT allows individuals to monitor their own emotional state, become more adept at communicating with others, and manage stress without needing to engage in substance abuse.

Nicotine Replacement Therapy:

Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) is a way of getting nicotine into the bloodstream without smoking. It uses products that supply low doses of nicotine to help people stop smoking. The goal of therapy is to cut down on cravings for nicotine and ease the symptoms of nicotine withdrawal.

Life Skills:

Life skills trainings involve all the skills a person must have in order to function successfully in the world. These include time management, career guidance, money management, and effective communication. Truly successful addiction recovery is based on the ability to not only live substance-free, but to thrive. Life skills teaches the practical necessities of functioning in society, which sets clients up for success in life, and therefore sobriety.

Family Therapy:

Research clearly demonstrates that recovery is far more successful and sustainable when loved ones like family members participate in rehab and substance abuse treatment. Genetic factors may be at play when it comes to drug and alcohol addiction, as well as mental health issues. Family dynamics often play a critical role in addiction triggers, and if properly educated, family members can be a strong source of support when it comes to rehabilitation.

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.

Motivational Interviewing:

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a clinical approach to helping people with substance abuse issues and other conditions shift behavior in positive ways. It is more goal-oriented than traditional psychotherapy, as MI counselors directly attempt to get clients to consider making behavioral change (rather than wait for them to come to conclusions themselves). Its primary purpose is to resolve ambivalence and help clients become able to make healthy choices freely.

Trauma Therapy:

Trauma therapy addresses traumatic incidents from a client's past that are likely affecting their present-day experience. Trauma is often one of the primary triggers and potential causes of addiction, and can stem from child sexual abuse, domestic violence, having a parent with a mental illness, losing one or both parents at a young age, teenage or adult sexual assault, or any number of other factors. The purpose of trauma therapy is to allow a patient to process trauma and move through and past it, with the help of trained and compassionate mental health professionals.

Nutrition Therapy:

Nutrition therapy, aka medical nutrition therapy (MNT), is a way of treating physical, emotional, and medical conditions through diet. Specific dietary plans are designed by professional nutritionists or registered dietitians, and patients follow them in order to positively affect their physical and mental health.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy:

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.

Couples Therapy:

Whether a marriage or other committed relationship, an intimate partnership is one of the most important aspects of a person's life. Drug and alcohol addiction affects both members of a couple in deep and meaningful ways, as does rehab and recovery. Couples therapy and other couples-focused treatment programs are significant parts of exploring triggers of addiction, as well as learning how to build healthy patterns to support ongoing sobriety.

Group Therapy:

Group therapy is any therapeutic work that happens in a group (not one-on-one). There are a number of different group therapy modalities, including support groups, experiential therapy, psycho-education, and more. Group therapy involves treatment as well as processing interaction between group members.
