  • We are in communication with our local health department to receive important community-specific updates.

The safety of our patients, their families, and our employees is our top priority, and we will remain steadfast in our efforts to reduce any risk associated with COVID-19.

A Message from Our Director

Welcome to White Deer Run of Lancaster! Thank you for visiting our website, and for taking the time to learn a bit more about our program.

As you will learn as you read through this site, White Deer Run of Lancaster offers a range of life-changing (and, in many cases, life-saving) services to adult men who are struggling with substance abuse and addiction. With insights and programming developed by focusing on the unique needs of adult men in recovery, we can give you the help you need to live the healthy life that you deserve.

At White Deer Run of Lancaster, we understand that deciding to finally get help is rarely an easy one to make. But no matter how badly your life has been damaged by the disease of addiction, making this decision is an essential first step on your path toward a much more promising future.

I want to personally assure you that every member of the White Deer Run of Lancaster team is dedicated to doing whatever we can to make your treatment experience as positive and productive as possible. From the day you enter our program until long after you have completed the residential phase of your treatment, you will remain a valued member of the WDR family, and will have the support of a dynamic and vibrant alumni community.

Once again, thank you for your interest in White Deer Run Lancaster. On behalf of the entire WDR family, I wish you all the best as you walk the path toward lifelong sobriety.
