White Deer Run Williamsport provides outpatient substance abuse treatment in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, a small city in the North-Central region of the state and home to the Little League World Series. White Deer Run Williamsport is situated between the Pennsylvania College of Technology and Brandon Park. It offers treatment at both the standard and Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) levels.

As a member of the White Deer Run treatment facility network, WDR Williamsport has served the residents of southern Pennsylvania since 2006.White Deer Run is part of the larger Acadia treatment network, which operates facilities throughout the US and United Kingdom.

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 groups three times each week, for a total of nine hours of treatment. Clients are scheduled for individual therapy as-needed.

Most treatment plans are at least six weeks long, and clients can step down into the standard outpatient program from the IOP as they progress in their recovery. Standard outpatient groups meet Tuesdays from 9 to 11 am and 6 to 8 pm and Thursdays from 3 to 5 pm. IOP groups meet Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 5 to 8 pm. There’s also a women’s group on Mondays from 2 to 4 pm, with a men’s group in the planning stages.

Treatment at Williamsport uses Client-Centered Supportive Therapy, Reality Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT), CBT and Motivational Interviewing (MI). Counselors also use the 12-step framework and teach both the Disease Concept Model of Addiction and the Ego Psychology Model. IOP clients have an additional curriculum that includes psychoeducational groups that explore relationship skills, changing criminal thinking, recovery and mental health issues and building a values system. All clients are also encouraged to attend 12-step meetings each week.

The treatment team consists of CADCs and Master’s-level therapists including MSWs and MFTs. Therapists are qualified to provide therapy for co-occurring disorders, but clients are referred to nearby mental health clinics for comprehensive dual diagnosis support. The Williamsport facility does, however, offer more dual diagnosis support than the nearby White Deer Run Lewisburg location.


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 Williamsport provides two levels of outpatient treatment with both daytime and evening therapy groups. With its gender-specific groups and therapy for co-occurring disorders, White Deer Run Williamsport might be an especially strong choice for clients whose addiction is impacted by sexual trauma and/or depression and anxiety.
