Continuing Care Program for Drug & Alcohol Addiction

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

About Our Treatment Programs

At the White Deer Run Treatment Network, we know that there are many steps on the path of successful long-term recovery. For some who choose to heal with us, treatment is just one step along that path; for others, certain needs may require them to take several treatment-related steps.

The comprehensive continuum of care that is provided through our network includes the following treatment options, listed from most to least intensive:

  • Detoxification
  • Residential rehabilitation
  • Partial hospitalization program (PHP)
  • Intensive outpatient program (IOP)
  • Outpatient program (OP)
  • Halfway houses

Regardless of the types and/or levels of care that a person completes within the White Deer Run Treatment Network, our goal is to ensure that he or she is prepared to make a smooth transition and experience continued success in the next phases of his or her recovery journey. For this reason, we are proud to provide thorough discharge planning services at every level of treatment.

What to Expect

When an individual first enters treatment at a White Deer Run program, he or she is likely to be experiencing a wide range of emotions, including both hope for the future and fear of the unknown. Our discharge planning process is designed to expand this sense of hope for a healthier tomorrow while alleviating any fears about what will occur in the weeks, months, and even years to come.

The day that a person arrives at one of our programs, one of our counselors or therapists starts the discharge planning process. As is the case with virtually all aspects of care within the White Deer Run Treatment Network, discharge planning will ultimately be a collaborative effort, with the individual in treatment expected to play a central part. During those crucial first days in treatment, though, members of our professional staff start the planning process, allowing the individual to focus solely on regaining his or her strength and making day-to-day improvements.

Planning for Continuous Care

Planning for continuing care is an ongoing process that involves three core elements:

  • Understanding the individual’s past issues and challenges
  • Assessing the individual’s present health and wellbeing
  • Identifying the individual’s unique treatment and recovery goals

These elements can be incorporated into aftercare planning at any time throughout a person’s treatment process, as well as at any level of treatment. For example, if an individual has entered a rehabilitation program for the first time, the admissions process will involve documenting his or her past, while the intake assessment will establish a baseline of current health. During the early days of his or her residential experience, the individual will work with staff professionals to identify treatment goals and develop the comprehensive plan necessary for meeting those goals.

While the individual is in treatment, updating current progress and re-evaluating progress toward goals can be done on an ongoing basis. By the time the individual has completed treatment, the updated information can be incorporated into a comprehensive plan for the next phase of his or her recovery, whether that next phase involves transitioning to a new program or out of treatment.

Why Continuing Care Works

At every step of a person’s experience with the White Deer Run Treatment Network, he or she can expect to work with a therapist, counselor, or other professional to complete a thorough continuing care plan. Thus, when treatment has been completed, he or she will have a comprehensive plan that identifies the resources, referrals, and other elements that will be necessary to support his or her continued walk on the path of successful lifelong recovery.
