Clear Concepts Counseling


bellefonte pennsylvaniaClear Concepts Counseling Review

Clear Concepts Counseling is an organization with locations in Lewistown, Bellefonte and Mifflintown, Pennsylvania offering outpatient treatment for addiction and co-occurring disorders. CCC offers both an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and a standard outpatient program featuring individual and group therapy. Both programs are based on the teachings of the 12 steps.

Treatment and Staff

Before treatment can begin at CCC, all clients must get a referral from an outside agency or primary physician before undergoing an initial assessment. Those who begin in the 30-day IOP attend three hour group sessions three times a week from 6 to 9 pm. The basic outpatient track involves clients scheduling therapy independently and attending groups as desired.

Treatment is based on 12-step principles with an additional emphasis on relapse prevention. The counselors also use CBT, DBT, Motivational Interviewing (MI) and EMDR. The staff also encourages participants to attend off-site AA/NA meetings in addition to the program at CCC as a form of additional support. Referrals for medication management are available to those with dual diagnosis. The staff at CCC is made up of Master’s-level LCSWs, MFTs, LPCs and psychologists.


After primary care, clients can move on to a lower intensity aftercare program that usually meets once a week for individual and group therapy lasting for an hour. Alumni can attend this program for as long as necessary. The groups are co-ed and consist of no more than 12 people at a time, with one therapist overseeing each meeting. There are also prevention groups for adolescents, support groups for those receiving Suboxone and DUI programs for those who need to take classes to meet DMV requirements.

In addition to substance abuse programs, CCC also offers treatment for gambling addiction and tobacco use as well as therapy for adolescents. Other offerings include marriage and family counseling, parenting groups, employee and student assistance programs and intervention services.

In Summary

Clear Concepts Counseling provides basic, evidence-based outpatient programs to both adults and adolescents. While medical support is not available, the facility still provides all the necessities for a life of sobriety along with some supplemental services and an aftercare program. In all, with three facilities offering treatment services, Clear Concepts Counseling is an affordable option worth considering for those in need of outpatient and affordable addiction treatment throughout Pennsylvania.
