TIPS: If you feel you're going to use

  • Find a peer support group: Pennsylvania 12-step meetings and aftercare programs from the DRS directory.
  • Stay active and distracted—take advantage of fitness or community centers, or go for long and short walks.
  • Utilize free or open behavioral health counseling or contact PA 2-1-1.
  • Find an extroverted activity—experience the history, Lake Wallenpaupack, Dutch Wonderland, state parks, or the Lancaster Central Market.
  • Avoid risky situations that lead to relapse. Becoming overwhelmed and unmanaged stress are common triggers.

TIPS: If you want to help someone

  • Refer them to local resources through Addicted.org or the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services.
  • Be aware of overdose risks—resources available through the OverdoseFree PA, or the Pennsylvania Department of Health.
  • Assessment and screening are vital tools. These resources are available at the state and local levels.
  • Consider hiring a professional interventionist and plan a family intervention.
  • Avoid enabling anyone addicted to drugs or alcohol as it worsens the situation.

Pennsylvania Long-Term Drug Rehab

The professional opinion of DRS is that long-term residential rehabilitation is the best treatment and lifelong recovery option. Here are some reasons why:

  • Long-term rehab programs in Pennsylvania attend to your multiple needs. Treatment manages addiction and may help with associated medical, psychological, social, vocational, or legal problems.
  • Individuals remain in treatment for an adequate time, increasing their success rate. Long-term programs generally provide treatment for 30, 60, 90 days, or longer.
  • Patients have access to 24/7 psychological and medical support. Most long-term programs provide extensive support networks for their clients.
  • Multiple therapy methodologies are utilized. Longer treatment permits more opportunity—for example, behavioral therapy, spiritual therapy, holistic treatment, or experiential therapy.
  • Long-term treatment helps you develop life-saving routines, healthy habits, and behaviors more effectively than other forms of treatment.

Regardless of your financial situation or addiction, DRS will help you find rehabilitation in the state. Our qualified professionals provide the resources you need to narrow the search and locate a program that meets your treatment and recovery needs.

Getting Help With Substance Use: The Basics

Ask a Professional

  • What is the cost of drug and alcohol rehabilitation services in Pennsylvania?

    The cost of substance use treatment in Pennsylvania changes based on services, yet there are some average price ranges.

    • Inpatient substance use treatment in Pennsylvania is on average $56,700. Costs vary and change based on several factors.
    • The average cost of outpatient drug rehab in Pennsylvania is $1700 for a shorter program. The price increases with longer programs.
    • Drug and alcohol detox in Pennsylvania costs between $200 and $1000 per day.
    • Low-cost and free drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs are available in Pennsylvania.
  • How long does it take to treat drug and alcohol addiction in Pennsylvania?

    The time it takes to treat drug and alcohol addiction is different for each person, but average time frames include the following:

    • Drug and alcohol detox in Pennsylvania generally requires a minimum of seven days, yet can be longer when medically supervised.
    • The average length of stay at an inpatient drug rehab program in Pennsylvania is 28 to 60 days; residential programs last three to twelve months.
    • The average time spent attending an outpatient drug rehab program in Pennsylvania is 12 to 18 weeks.
  • What are the most commonly abused drugs in Pennsylvania?

    Per treatment admissions, the most commonly abused drugs in Pennsylvania are heroin and alcohol.

    If you begin to notice a loved one exhibiting the signs of heroin addiction or alcoholism, it is critical to intervene. The risks of overdose increase without proper treatment. Alcohol is commonly used with opiates, which also increases the risk of overdose.

DRS’ Evaluation of Drug Rehabs in Pennsylvania

A big barrier when searching for drug and alcohol treatment in Pennsylvania surrounds the cost of treatment for low-income families. In addition, many programs are offered through the Department of Human Services, and Pennsylvania’s Medical Assistance programs cover most programs’ costs. Yet, there can be long wait times.

Most of the state’s treatment centers accept Medicaid or private health insurance. Unfortunately, only a small number of programs provide a sliding fee scale or treatment at no charge or minimal payment.  Our experts recommend contacting more than one rehabilitation center. Ask what payment options they provide. Also, contact your Medicaid office or health insurance provider and find out specifically what insurance covers.

The bulk of programs in the state is outpatient centers. Yet, many of these programs offer residential care, which is a significant benefit. We recommend an addiction assessment to help you find the right choice.

State and Local Resources in Pennsylvania

Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs

  • The Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs provides an extensive directory and resources for prevention, treatment, and recovery.

Substance Use Prevention/Education

  • The Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs (DDAP) is responsible for developing, overseeing, and managing substance misuse prevention and intervention services throughout Pennsylvania.

More Information

Michael Leach is a Certified Clinical Medical Assistant, who has over 5 years of experience working in the field of addiction. He spent his career working under the board-certified Addictionologist Dr. Rohit Adi. His experience includes working with families during their loved one’s stay in treatment, helping those with substance abuse issues find treatment, and teaching life skills to patients in a recovery atmosphere. Though he has worked in many different areas of rehabilitation, the majority of his time was spent working one on one with patients who were actively withdrawing from drugs. Withdrawal and the fear of going through it is one biggest reason why an addict continues to use and can be the most difficult part of the rehabilitation process. His experience in the withdrawal atmosphere has taught him that regardless of what approach a person takes to get off drugs, there are always mental and emotional obstacles that need to be overcome. He believes having someone there to help a person through these obstacles can make all the difference during the withdrawal process.
