Telehealth assessment process at White Deer Run of Allentown
One of the most important aspects of deciding to seek treatment for a substance use disorder is making sure that you find a facility that has your best interests in mind.

We’re ready to begin this process at your convenience. All you need to do is:

- Ask questions about the admissions process and what to expect during treatment, and voice any concerns about the troubles you’ve been experiencing.
- Patiently wait while we review your assessment in a matter of minutes.
- Discuss your thoughts on our recommendation of a type and level of care that is right for you.
Taking an assessment at White Deer Run of Allentown does not place you under any obligation to receive treatment with us. We will determine what the right therapeutic programming is for your needs, whether that’s at our facility or in a different program outside of our network.
Telehealth programming at White Deer Run of Allentown
At White Deer Run of Allentown, we take into account each person’s unique strengths when we put together an individualized treatment plan.
Our outpatient telehealth programming is available through an intensive outpatient program (IOP). This level of care is designed for individuals who need a more robust treatment experience than you would find through traditional outpatient programs but do not require partial hospitalization or inpatient care.
Our virtual IOP typically consists of three days of therapy each week for three hours per day. These therapeutic sessions are spaced out to allow for our patients to continue to work, attend classes, or fulfill other personal responsibilities as they transition back to an independent lifestyle. For those who need assistance with medication management, we also offer medication-assisted treatment (MAT), specifically Vivitrol and buprenorphine maintenance.
Group therapy is the primary means of programming in our IOP, though you may also participate in individual and family therapy sessions on an as-needed basis.
Throughout your time in our telehealth IOP, you’ll receive the same exceptional level of care as you would in person at our facility in Allentown, Pennsylvania. By the time you’ve completed treatment, you will have the tools necessary to build a long-term foundation for better health.
