White Deer Run Allenwood

Allenwood’s Women’s Residential Addiction Rehab Program

At White Deer Run at Allenwood, we help individuals struggling with addiction and co-occurring mental health issues build a strong foundation for long-term recovery.

What We Treat

At White Deer Run of Allenwood, we know that the road to recovery can be a lifelong process, and so we created a specialized residential rehabilitation program designed specifically for women who would benefit from continued support as they continue to build their sober living skills. Our women’s addiction treatment program helps those who are struggling with an addiction to a number of different substances, some of which may include:

  • Alcohol
  • Marijuana
  • Synthetic marijuana
  • Benzodiazepines
  • Opioids
  • Cocaine

The men and women of Allenwood that we treat are wrestling with co-occurring mental health conditions in addition to substance use disorders. Some of the co-occurring mental health disorders that we commonly treat include:

  • Bipolar disorder
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Depressive disorders
  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

Types of Treatment

At our addiction rehab center the women’s residential rehabilitation program is open to individuals ages 18 and older with substance use disorders, as well as women with substance use disorders and co-occurring mental health disorders. Participants typically stay in the residential program for 28 days, though the length of stay can vary depending on individual needs. The treatment program at our rehab center is based on various theories and techniques, including Choice Theory, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, the 12-Steps, and Motivational Interviewing. Treatment is customized for each individual’s unique needs and goals and typically includes:

Our center’s staff psychiatrist, physician’s assistants, and nursing team, consisting of registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, and nurse practitioners, will provide medication management services as needed.

Individual therapy: Individual therapy provides an opportunity for participants in the residential rehabilitation program to receive support and process issues that have emerged during the course of treatment. At our rehab center, individual therapy is provided at least once per week depending on each individual’s needs.

Group therapy: Groups are a fundamental component of treatment at White Deer Run of Allenwood. Six structured activity groups are offered each day, seven days per week, while small groups and mental health groups are offered four times per week. Groups provide a chance for individuals to support and be supported by others while learning from each other’s experiences. Structured activity groups are led by technicians, case managers, and counselors, and the small groups and mental health groups are led by a counselor. Group topics can include:

  • 12-Steps: The first 3 steps

Family therapy: Families can often be a strong source of first-line support for women who are struggling with substance use disorders and co-occurring mental health disorders. As a result, counselors at our rehab center provide weekly family therapy services for participants in our program.

Continuing care: A journey to sobriety can be a lifelong process, and White Deer Run of Allenwood is committed to helping the women of Allenwood have the best chance of success. We begin discharge planning on the first day of treatment so that each person has an opportunity to build on the progress she has made during residential treatment once she is discharged.

Co-occurring disorders: Fighting a two-front war against both substance use and co-occurring mental health issues can be exhausting, but White Deer Run of Allenwood provides a specialized track uniquely designed to address the issues these women face. Women in the co-occurring disorders track will receive individual and group therapy designed to build skills and increase knowledge of their co-occurring disorders.

Though learning to manage a substance use disorder and co-occurring mental health disorder can be immensely difficult, the staff of the women’s residential rehabilitation program at White Deer Run of Allenwood are here to help. With the comprehensive and compassionate care provided at our addiction rehab center, you can take the first few steps on your journey to recovery and begin a life free from the chains of substance abuse.
