Our Program

Real recovery from drug and alcohol addiction cannot take place until we look beyond the pointing finger; until recovery becomes a realization and the person’s own idea.

Music Expressions

Sparking the creative process without the use of drugs or alcohol is a very important step in early recovery. Restarting the imagination takes internal motivation, work, and coaching.

Why Choose Us?

Little Creek Lodge was the first of its kind on the east coast to mix clinical care with recreational therapies. We are a small family owned and operated treatment center that gives personal attention to each and every resident. Little Creek is very dedicated to family education from the day of entry to years after completion. We pride ourselves on our alumni and the sober community that we developed here in Northeast PA. The Alumni have a firm commitment to a sober lifestyle and giving back to the current residents, whether its sponsorship, jobs, housing, home groups, or colleges. Even our parents have stuck together and attend family groups/meetings in their hometown areas.

We treat addiction as a chronic disease, and strive for continuity of care. Our facility is very private, safe and we are licensed by the state of Pennsylvania. Each resident is evaluated and a comprehensive treatment plan is developed for the individual. This treatment plan is monitored for completion in a timely manner and updated as needed.

Little Creek is gender specific in its three stage approach to care, and is geared toward males 18 to 28 years of age. Our treatment approach is 12 Step based with cognitive behavioral therapies, family education and involvement. Recreational therapy is a critical part of our program. Physical engagement is extremely beneficial to the growth and balance in the recovery process.

Client Testimonials

Recovery is an ongoing process

  • Little Creek Lodge saved my life. When I was in the throws of addiction I used to wonder to myself if I would ever be 'normal' again or if I would just continue on my path of destruction forever. Since leaving Little Creek 5 years ago my life has changed for the better in ways I could not have imagined. I'm on my way to a Bachelors degree and am getting married next year to an amazing woman. Little Creek played a key role in my recovery and I would recommend it highly to anyone struggling with addiction.

  • I am eternally grateful for the opportunities little creek has given me in my life. I went to countless treatment centers before little creek and never felt loved or cared about always felt like a number. Andy & Barbara cared for me as if I was their own son. The inspiration they put into my mind is something that cannot be measured. I am so thankful for everything they do and the lives they save day by day. The people they have introduced me to have become my fellowship and  my life today is better than I could have ever imagined and I owe it all to Little Creek Lodge and the Pace family for welcoming me into their hearts.

  • Andy & Barb, with the ten o'clock and three o'clock groups, gourmet cooking, physical fitness and invited guest speakers, just to name a few activities, you have given little creek a wonderful atmosphere for recovery. without the help of the staff, patients, and all the amenities I would not have been able to make the progress I have made. I still need to do much more work on my road to recovery but because of your generosity I have been able to gain much needed traction in going in the right direction. Thank You Again.

  • Even though I did not attend Little Creek Lodge, through working at the facility I have had the opportunity to help many people to create a better life for themselves and their families. Little Creek Lodge has helped me build a career in the field of addiction which until that point was only wishful thinking. Since I have been working at the facility I have made the best of friends and have seen others build long lasting friendships which only furthers my gratitude for this opportunity. Andy and Barb make Little Creek Lodge more than just a treatment center , it is a fellowship and family that continues to grow and prosper with every passing year. Little Creek Lodge and the generosity of the Pace Family have made one of the most positive impacts on my life and I am both happy and grateful for this.

  • On August 20th 2011 I entered The Caron Foundation frightened and utterly defeated. Now, two and a half years later, I lead a life that is truly beyond my wildest dreams. This incredible alteration in my outlook on life would not have been possible without Little Creek Lodge and the people who make it possible. Through my experiences at the Lodge I was reintroduced to the joy of living and the possibilities that are brought about by a life of sobriety. I have since been granted the unique opportunity to be a part of the staff here and to contribute to the transformative experiences of others. Through the Adventure Trek outings I have rekindled the many lost passions of my youth and have found a rich and hope filled new way of living.

  • I could not be more grateful for having the opportunity to come to Little Creek Lodge. Little Creek has saved my life and I can see why it is one of the best programs in the country. Little Creek has given me the opportunity to learn about myself and also how to have fun in sobriety which I believe is extremely important for young people in recovery. the staff here is amazing and has helped me in so many ways. from introducing me to the large network of young people in recovery around the area to helping me get a job and helping me find sober living for when I leave little creek. they are always there to lend a helping hand or if I just need someone to talk to. I know I can go to anyone here for advice. I couldn’t be happier with the direction my life is headed and I owe this to little creek. I am forever thankful  for the opportunity Andy & Barbara have given me to stay in their beautiful home.
