INPATIENT REHAB Treatment services

The Retreat at Lancaster County, PA provides a wide range of addiction treatment services including intensive stabilization (also known as detoxification or “detox”), individual and group therapy, and education in the social, biological, and spiritual aspect of addiction in residential treatment. Our inpatient rehabilitation and addiction therapy program consists of a phased approach to care for adults ages 18 years and over.

Initial Addiction Recovery Phase is typically a 30 day residential program (not including detox) with a variety of treatment programs and wellness options focused on the patient and tailored to each person as an individual.

Secondary Addiction Treatment Phase is a transition to extended care for men and women at our treatment facility in Pennsylvania (PA). This is a 30, 60, or 90 day program designed to provide a gender-specific, sober living environment to focus on rebuilding your life and overcoming addiction. The length of stay can vary, allowing a patient to apply the tools and skills learned during phase one, but in a realistic environment that includes access to outside self-help meetings, along with daily counseling (typically in groups) to address relapse triggers and warning signs.

Addiction Outpatient Care Phase is an outpatient aftercare program consisting of at least 1 x per week of therapy for a minimum of 8 months typically. Our clinical staff embraces the principles and philosophies of various Twelve Step programs throughout all phases of treatment.

The Retreat at Lancaster County adheres to the belief that the delivery of addiction treatment must be specifically oriented toward the age, culture, gender, and sexual orientation of each patient. Group therapy is provided in a gender-specific setting. During our admission process, every patient goes through a welcoming orientation with a detox counselor and is oriented to the treatment and standards of the initial phase 4-5 week treatment program.



Equine Assisted Therapy: Equine assisted therapy incorporates horses experientially for emotional growth and learning. It is an experiential modality in which patients learn about themselves and others by participating in activities with the hoses, and than discussing thoughts, beliefs, behaviors, and patterns.

Therapeutic Table Massage: Therapeutic table massage is done on a comfortable, supportive table by a licensed therapist using massage techniques which can be given through clothing. The session focuses on the upper body – head, neck, shoulders, back, and arms. Table massage creates a nurturing space where patients can relax and let the soothing touch of massage loosen tense and achy muscles and calm the nervous system. Massage helps to release toxins from the body throughout the detox process.

Mindfulness Meditation, & Chanting: Mindfulness is the practice of focusing one’s attention on what is happening in the present moment.

Stress Management: This group uses a combination of didactic presentations and experiential exercises to help patients understand and learn to manage everyday stressors.
