About Peace Valley Recovery: Professional Drug and Alcohol Treatment

Peace Valley Recovery is conveniently located in Doylestown, PA. We offer one of the area’s best outpatient addiction treatment and recovery programs. We have worked with many people from the Edison area.

Our facility is located just over an hour away from Edison, New Jersey.

Peace Valley Recovery Treatment Options Nearby

Peace Valley Recovery offers two levels of outpatient care. There is a partial hospitalization program (PHP) and an intensive outpatient program (IOP). Both programs include therapy designed specifically for each person. It will not be a copy of someone else’s treatment program.

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

This is one of the most involved levels of outpatient care near you. PHPs allow you to live at home but have treatment five days each week. Each day is six hours of structured therapy.

A partial hospitalization program is a good fit for someone who has already completed a detox program. A detox program is an inpatient setting people can attend to help them get all of the drugs or alcohol out of their bodies. This is very important because withdrawal symptoms from alcohol and some drugs can be life-threatening.

During treatment, individuals have daily group therapy. Individual therapy sessions happen two times per week. Therapy types can include:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Music therapy
  • Art therapy
  • Experiential therapy
  • Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR)

We also offer medication-assisted therapy. This type of therapy includes taking medications that reduce drug cravings. This helps reduce distractions so people can focus on therapy and learning new skills.

Intensive Outpatient Therapy (IOP)

People who have been through a detox program and higher levels of addiction treatment can benefit from intensive outpatient therapy. It is an opportunity to have treatment three or five days a week while transitioning back to a regular lifestyle.

IOP at Peace Valley includes three hours of programming on the days people attend. There is daily group therapy. Individual therapy is once per week. Evening IOP is also offered for those with school or work obligations.

Sober Living Options

A sober living home is a place where people can live while working on their addiction recovery. It is a home that is substance-free, no drugs or alcohol allowed. Sober living helps people avoid relapse triggers that might be present where they were living before.

Peace Valley Recovery does not have sober living homes. We do work with Candor House sober living. They are nearby in Doylestown, PA.

How to Pay for Drug and Alcohol Addiction Treatment Near Me

Many people avoid going to doctors or hospitals when they need help. They are afraid they can not pay for treatment. Unfortunately, this happens with addiction treatment too.

Even when someone has health insurance they might avoid getting help. They may be concerned that it will not be covered. Or they could think the deductible or co-pay will be too high.

In 2014 the Affordable Care Act changed medical coverage for everyone. Health insurance companies are now required to cover some types of addiction treatment. We can help you by checking your benefits to see what is covered.

The Benefits of Addiction Treatment

There are several benefits of attending drug and alcohol addiction treatment. Attending a treatment program means you do not have to figure everything out by yourself.

Treatment programs provide a safe and supportive environment. Group therapy sessions introduce people to others who are going through similar struggles. They can gain knowledge and coping strategies from each other. A peer support group is a big part of a successful recovery.

A treatment program also gives people the chance to try different kinds of therapy. What works for one person might not have the same results for someone else. Finding what kind of therapy works best for themselves helps prevent people from going back to using substances.

One person might find great significance in art therapy, while it may not make an impact on the next person. Music or experiential therapy could be their best fit.

Setting goals and creating new habits can make a big impact on a person’s life. Addiction therapy can help each person decide on their best goals. New habits can be hard to start.

With the right support system, people can leave behind the habits that led to substance use. Addiction treatment is designed to help people create habits that will keep them drug and alcohol-free.
