How much will treatment cost?

Addiction rehabilitation is a highly personal experience, and the costs associated with treatment depend upon a number of issues, including (but not necessarily limited to) the specific nature of your problem being treated, the amount of time you will need to remain in treatment, and the presence of any co-occurring disorders.

Our admissions advisors will be happy to work with you to develop an accurate picture of what your treatment will cost.

Are your staff members licensed?

Yes. All White Deer Run Treatment Facilities are fully licensed by the State of Pennsylvania and CARF accredited.

Does your program treat dual diagnosis patients?

Yes. We are proud to provide highly effective residential dual diagnosis treatment at both our Allenwood and Williamsburg locations.

Do you provide detox services?

Yes, we do. Inpatient non-hospital detoxification services are available at five locations: Allenwood, Lancaster, Lebanon, Williamsburg, and York.

Our inpatient non-hospital detox programs allow you the time needed to devote to reducing withdrawal symptoms. Our detoxification staff is made up of seasoned professionals including (but not limited to) physicians, registered nurses, licensed practical nurses and physician’s assistance – all of whom are trained and experienced in the complexity of the substance withdrawal process.

Does White Deer Run support AA/NA and similar 12-Step programs?

Yes. The 12-Step Model is an important component of our comprehensive chemical dependency treatment programming, and we encourage all clients to participate in AA/NA meetings both during their treatment experience and as an essential part of their lifelong aftercare plan.

How long will I need to be in treatment?

Drug rehab treatment can vary from a few days to many months. Research shows that the longer a person remains in treatment, the greater the likelihood that long-term sobriety will result. As with most aspects of treatment, determining ideal length of stay involves an analysis of a number of personal factors.

At White Deer Run, we work with each client to determine the length of stay (and transition services) that will give them the best likelihood of achieving long-term sobriety.

Will I be required (or permitted) to take medication during treatment?

All medication determinations are made on an individual basis, and always involve the informed consent of the client. While you are in residence at White Deer Run, every decision regarding medication will be made by you and your healthcare provider.

Will my family be involved in my treatment?

We certainly want them to be!

Our goal is to increase awareness and offer alternatives to the frustration and confusion that often occur within families that have been impacted by substance abuse, addiction and chemical dependency.
