White Deer Run Harrisburg provides outpatient substance abuse treatment in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Located in the Southeastern region of the state, Harrisburg is the capital the state and sits on the banks of the Susquehanna River. White Deer Run Harrisburg is located in the Olde Uptown section of the city, near The Governor’s Residence. It offers treatment at both the standard and Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) levels. As a member of the White Deer Run treatment network, this facility has served the residents of southern Pennsylvania for over 15 years.

Under the Acadia Healthcare umbrella, the White Deer Run group is included among an expansive international group of behavioral health facilities providing chemical dependency and therapeutic support. With its headquarters in Franklin, Tennessee, Acadia serves communities across the country and in the UK with inpatient, residential, outpatient and school-based treatment programs.

Treatment and Staff

After an assessment, clients are enrolled in either the standard outpatient or IOP track. Standard outpatient clients attend group therapy once or twice a week for up to four hours. IOP clients attend group therapy three times each week, for a total of nine hours of treatment. Clients are scheduled for individual therapy as-needed.

Most clients complete their treatment plans in two to four months, and often step down into the standard outpatient program from the IOP as their recovery progresses. Standard outpatient groups meet Tuesdays from 10 am to 12 pm, 5 to 7 pm or 7 to 9 pm and on Fridays from 10 am to 12 pm. IOP groups meet Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9 am to 12 pm or 6 to 9 pm.

The therapeutic foundations of treatment at White Deer Run Harrisburg are Client-Centered Supportive Therapy, Reality Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT), CBT and Motivational Interviewing (MI). Counselors also use the 12-step framework, the Disease Concept Model of Addiction and the Ego Psychology Model. IOP clients have an additional curriculum that includes psycho-educational groups that explore relationship skills, changing criminal thinking, recovery and mental health issues and building a values system. Clients are also encouraged to attend 12-step meetings each week.

The treatment team primarily consists of CADCs. While counselors address co-occurring disorders in group and individual therapy, they refer clients to nearby mental health clinics for comprehensive dual diagnosis support.


Family therapy is available to clients whose loved ones wish to participate in the recovery process. As clients near the end of their treatment plan, they work with their primary counselor to create an aftercare plan likely to include on-going individual therapy and peer support meetings such as NA/AA or SMART Recovery. The White Deer Run treatment network regularly holds a variety of alumni gatherings throughout Pennsylvania.

In Summary

White Deer Run Harrisburg provides two levels of outpatient treatment with both daytime and evening therapy groups. Using a range of evidence-based treatment modalities, counselors teach clients how to integrate recovery into their daily lives, making them likely to leave treatment with improved relationship skills and problem-solving skills. The staff at Harrisburg claim that clients say its reputation is that of “the place you come to in Harrisburg when you’re serious about change.”
