Treatment and Staff
Clients entering treatment at Creative Health Services participate in an initial screening that includes assessment and referral. Those who are suitable for outpatient treatment are offered individualized treatment plans. Treatment length is determined by the client and their counselor, who work together to set goals for recovery.
Hour-long individual therapy and two-hour-long group therapy sessions are offered at both locations several times weekly, with Intensive Outpatient (IOP)—three group sessions and one individual session per week, for eight weeks—available only at Pottstown. Evidence-based techniques including CBT and DBT are used in group and individual therapy. Specialized groups are available for adolescent clients, for gender-sensitive issues such as domestic violence and sexual assault and for those who need dual diagnosis support. When appropriate, trauma-informed techniques like EDMR are used. Medication management and psychiatric evaluation are available for clients with co-occurring disorders. Clients are also encouraged to attend off-site 12-step meetings, such as AA or NA.
Clients are supported by CSACs, psychiatrists, therapists and case managers. Group sizes vary and treatment is offered Monday to Thursday, 8:30 am to 9 pm, Friday from 8:30 am to 5 pm, and on Saturdays by appointment only.
Groups focusing on play therapy and couples and family therapy are available. Programs for gambling addiction and tobacco cessation are also offered and counseling is available for any resident of Pennsylvania with a DUI conviction.
Creative Health Services offers a range of affordable behavioral health treatment for those in the greater Philadelphia area. Clients requiring support for addiction recovery, trauma and co-occurring disorders can find access to resources, peer support and advocacy at two CHS locations.
