The support our clients receive at 1st Step Behavioral Health does not end when you leave. Treatment is only the beginning of developing a program for a full recovery. A daily connection to a recovering lifestyle is essential.

1. Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

When struggling with addiction or mental health, it’s important to treat the core of the disease appropriately. Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) addresses each individual patient’s needs separately so we can ensure the best chance of a full recovery.

IOP is the step of treatment after residential and before aftercare. In order to fully recover, these steps are pivotal as they each provide the treatment you need.

2. Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorders as it is also commonly referred to is a necessary form of treatment that aims to treat both mental health disorders and substance abuse at the same time. In most cases with addiction, the patient also suffers from mental health that actually can be the cause of addiction if not treated.

Our dual diagnosis program in Pennsylvania allows the patient to understand their addiction better and move past the mental health issues they struggle with.

3. Individual Therapy

Individual Therapy is a one-on-one session with a licensed therapist that helps you talk and work through your mental health and substance abuse issues. It allows you to confidently share what you have went through in life to bring you into treatment in the first place.

Knowing the root cause of the need for addiction treatment is one of the best ways to ensure a successful journey to a full recovery.

4. Holistic Therapy

Our alcohol and drug therapy programs do much more than merely provide medical assistance or care. Patients are provided a comfortable and home-like atmosphere by our clinical staff in an environment that’s supported with holistic therapies. They provide consistent therapeutic support to guide patients throughout the treatment while offering things like yoga, meditation, and much more.

Holistic therapy helps each patient find their inner strength to battle the disease of addition from the mind, body, and spirit.
