Choosing to get help for a substance abuse problem can be one of the most difficult decisions that you will ever make. Yet, it will also be one of the bravest. Recognizing that you are struggling with a need to consume drugs or alcohol, and have lost the ability to control how much you consume, is the first step that you will make towards securing a promising future. With that knowledge, however, comes great challenges; but they are not challenges that you have to face on your own.

Seeking Help for Addiction

Seeking Help for Drug & Alcohol Addiction and Substance Abuse

At White Deer Run Treatment Network, we recognize the intimidation that can arise when seeking out help for chemical dependency. Therefore, we have designed our admissions process to be one that is as easy to navigate as possible.

If you or a loved one is in need of treatment, you may contact any of the White Deer Run Treatment Network’s locations directly, or you may contact the National Resource Center (NRC) 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

From the moment you contact us, your or your loved one’s needs will become our top priority. We will celebrate the strength you have shown in taking the first step toward recovery, and we will continue to encourage you as you navigate your recovery journey.

The Assessment Process

The Assessment Process for Drug & Alcohol Addiction Treatment

At White Deer Run Treatment Network, we are dedicated to ensuring that you will receive the most appropriate type of placement for meeting your specific and unique needs. In order to do so, thorough assessments are conducted as part of the admissions process. At some locations, pre-screening assessments may be conducted over the phone in order to determine the appropriateness of placement. After that pre-screen, an in-person assessment may be scheduled. At other locations, the pre-screen may be bypassed and participants may be asked to come in for a full face-to-face assessment.

During these assessments, qualified professionals will work with you to gather all pertinent background information in order to ensure that a full understanding of your presenting concerns is obtained. That information will be reviewed by clinical staff members and a determination will be made about whether or not programming at White Deer Run Treatment Network is the best fit for you or your loved one. Insurance benefits can be verified at this time as well, and the process of getting you or your loved admitted into the appropriate program will begin.

If it is determined that White Deer Run Treatment Network will not fully meet all of your needs, we will work with you in order to find appropriate placement elsewhere.

Admissions Criteria

Admissions Criteria for Drug & Alcohol Addiction Treatment

Each of the locations that are part of the White Deer Run Treatment Network may have slightly different criteria that must be met for admission. For example, some locations require that individuals receive detoxification services before they can begin residential programming. This type of information can be gathered by contacting the admissions department at any of the locations.

The main criteria for all locations, however, is that participants must be 18 years of age or older, and must be suffering from a substance use disorder. White Deer Run Treatment Network is also able to assist individuals who are battling with certain co-occurring mental health conditions as well, but chemical dependency must be the primary concern. Individuals who are in need of medical attention or a higher level of care than we are able to provide will be referred to outside placement.

At White Deer Run Treatment Network, we pride ourselves in offering everyone who is entrusted into our care the opportunity to find a new beginning, a new purpose, and a new way of life. We remain steadfast in our mission to provide individualized care for each and every person who engages in our programming, and we will do everything in our power to ensure that you or your loved one rediscovers a happy, healthy, and productive life, no longer tainted by the abuse of drugs or alcohol.

Remember that, while challenges lay ahead, you are strong and you can overcome them. And we are here to help.
