Drug & Alcohol Treatment

Finding the best place to obtain help for yourself or a loved one using alcohol or drugs can be an overwhelming experience. There are so many questions that an individual has, where do you start?

Trehab offers a wide range of outpatient services in Montrose and Susquehanna to help individuals in Susquehanna County to identify their problems, see that there is a better way, and learn the skills necessary to live without substances. We offer programs addressing the various stages of addiction,  from early use of substances to increasing dependence.  Our programs are based upon years of research, and are focused on helping the individual prepare for a lifetime of success at being drug free.

Philosophy
 
At Trehab we believe in treating the client as an individual and addressing his/her substance abuse problem on a biological,  psychological,  social,  and spiritual level.  Although certain aspects of addiction are similar,  each person has experiences which are unique to him/her,  as well as underlying contributors and issues that make his/her experience unique. 
 
Counseling programs are voluntary;  any individual who presents with a need for treatment and is willing to participate in recommended counseling is accepted as a Trehab client.  Our professional staff provides a safe,  supportive and compassionate environment for individuals struggling with the consequences of their substance abuse.  All services and counseling are handled with complete confidentiality. 
 
What If I'm On A Fixed Income?
 
We accept medical assistance and some insurance policies. For those who are found to be ineligible for medical assistance, we offer moderate rates for services and a sliding scale based upon income and family size. (Clients must provide documentation to be eligible for the sliding scale.) No one will be turned away from treatment based on his or her ability or inability to pay.

Services are provided by appointment in Montrose Monday through Thursday from 8:30 am- 5:00 pm, and on Friday from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm.  Services at the Susquehanna office are provided by appointment on Tuesdays,  Wednesdays,  and Thursdays from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm.  Propective clients will be seen for an evaluation by one of our trained counselors within one week of an initial phone call.

Following is a brief description of the services and programs that Trehab offers:
 
Comprehensive Screening & Assessment
 
An assessment of each person's relationship with mood-altering chemicals is performed, and the results are discussed at length with the client. The purpose of this service is to raise the person's awareness regarding his/her relationship with mood-altering substances.  Based on the assessment results,  a client is recommended an appropriate treatment option.  The screening and assessment process may take between one and three sessions to complete.
 
Each client is assigned a specific treatment plan based on his/her individual needs.  The plans are tailored specifically to each client and addressed in specialized,  small group and individual sessions with their primary counselor and other counseling staff. 
 
Treatment Services
 
As a private,  non-profit treatment center we are licensed to provide a continuum of care including:
 
  • Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) Treatment  
  • Outpatient Treatment
    • Individual 
    • Brief Therapy Group
    • Relapse Prevention Group
    • Women and Addiction Group
    • Adolescent Group

Clients attending treatment will gain knowledge in:
 
Impulse Control-  a focus on learning to change behaviors and to exert control over thoughts and impulses to assist with curbing addictive behavior.
 
Development of a Sober Structure-  Structure in daily life is important in recovery and is incorporated into the program to help clients plan sober support meetings and outpatient sessions into daily schedules along with employment and/or school. 
 
Development of Sober Support System-  This occurs in part through incorporating 12-step meetings and connections to other school individuals. 
 
Coping Mechanisms-  Clients develop necessary coping skills to deal with anger,  stress, boredome and difficult relationships.  Coping skills include appropriate expression of emotions,  asking for help when feeling overwhelmed,  being honest with cravings and devleoping healthy actions when faced with unexpected obstacles. 
 
Denial-  Clients often don't realize the extent of how addiction has impacted their lives and loved ones,  employment, finances and health.  Cleints are taught to address consequences of addiction and the negative impact drugs/alcohol has on their lives. 
 
Peer Influence-  Many young clients have a difficult time dealing with becoming sober at such a young age and are expecially susceptible to peer influence.  Education focuses on the seriousness of peer influence and the impact on relapse.  Guidance is provided on how to develop new friends and support groups through young adult programs and 12-step meetings. 
 
Aftercare Planning-  All clients are given an aftercare plan upon discharge to ensure continuity of care.  Counseling staff are available to assist with long-term aftercare treatment or living arrangements such as halfway or recovery houses.
