An Overview of Clinical Care for Drug and Alcohol Addiction Treatment
Helping people throughout North Eastern Pennsylvania
At Little Creek, extended care consists of a 24-hour, structured environment throughout the Three Stages of Care. Each resident collaborates with our clinical team in creating specific treatment plans, goals, and objectives based on a detailed bio-psychosocial assessment. Each resident is paired with a counselor who works with him throughout the Three Stages. Residents of Little Creek Lodge are expected to commit to a minimum of a 90-day program. Ninety is not a magic number; it does not mean that everyone is ready to transition after a 90-day period, or that some residents may not be ready to transition before that time period ends. However, we believe that it is best for all incoming residents to prepare themselves for a 90-day in-patient recovery on our grounds.
Residents work toward specific goals and objectives established in conjunction with our treatment team. Each resident builds a treatment plans tailored to his needs, and is encouraged to complete the stages of his treatment in a timely manner. Our staff assists each resident in helping to meet these goals, and guides residents to integrate into the community in a healthy fashion.
Outside, individual counseling services are available and offered to all residents seeking further help for treatment-related issues. These counseling services are available one or two times weekly, if needed, and are financially separate from overall program costs. Services include Psychiatry, Psychology, private therapy, and Pastor or Rabbi consultation.
Finally, Little Creek Lodge is proud to offer a sober living facility, Shane’s House, located on the same property as the facility. Residents who commit to living a sober life have access to the same 24-hour care, as well as many of the amenities offered at our main treatment building.
“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Take the right path to recovery, personal
growth and long-term sobriety.”
