EaglevilleThe Basics

In western Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, Eagleville Hospital was first formed in 1909 as a treatment center for indigent individuals suffering from tuberculosis. Upon realizing that many sufferers were also alcoholics, the facility began specializing in treatment for substance abuse. Eagleville is also recognized for excellence in the treatment of co-occurring disorders, and offers a variety of inpatient and outpatient programs for adults. Set about 30 miles northwest of Philadelphia, Eagleville offers treatment solutions in a wooded suburban setting.

Accommodations and Food

Set on 70 acres, Eagleville is made up of several buildings, each containing smaller co-ed or gender-specific units. The entire facility houses 308 clients, with two to three in a room. As there is usually a wait list, there is no possibility of staying in a private room. The hospital contains a small gym and recreation room with TV. The furnishings are basic, and healthy meals are served in the cafeteria. Electronic devices including cell phones, laptops, iPods and cameras are not allowed. Clients should only bring clothing, non-alcoholic toiletries and change for the payphone and vending machines.

Treatment and Staff

Doctors, nurses and counselors support clients admitted to Eagleville who require detox. Treatment typically lasts four to seven days, after which clients are transferred to one of the hospital’s residential or outpatient programs.

Clients benefit from highly individualized treatment plans, which can include medication management. An acute co-occurring disorder unit is designated for adults with high-level mental disorders in addition to significant substance abuse issues. All clients participate in group therapy three times a day, individual therapy weekly and education. Counseling consists of education of emotional and behavioral conditions, goal setting, life skills and guidance through criminal justice and socioeconomic difficulties. Long-term treatment is not offered unless court ordered, with most clients not exceeding 14 days of inpatient care after detox. An aftercare plan is devised to meet the goals of the client upon discharge.

One registered nurse and two clinical assistants supervise each unit at all times. Additional staff includes doctors, LCSWs, CADCs and therapists.

Extras

Eagleville also provides geriatric psychiatric treatment for clients over 55. It is a short-term program for acute sufferers, and aims to quickly return clients to their optimum level of functioning. Treatment includes psychiatric and physical assessment, 24-hour nursing and medical support, medication management, therapy and treatment planning.

In Summary

For substance abusers who are unable to find adequate dual diagnosis support, Eagleville is just what they need. While the range of therapeutic modalities offered is limited, it has a great reputation and three group therapy sessions a day will certainly help stabilize clients and prepare them for the next stage of their recovery. With administrators who will work with insurance and sliding scale fees available, this facility is as affordable as it is credible.

    Debbie Holland it’s sounds to me that you’re your son’s biggest problem. Stop making excuses for him and blaming other people. A hospital can help people that wants to be helped. Also the next time you put in a complaint try learning how to use spell check because your grammar and spelling is terrible.

    During my stay at eagleville detox for alchahol abuse, i was told my blood showed i was positive for pcp and methamphedimins. it had been about fifteen years since i used pcp, and ive never even sampled meth in my life. my first day of rehab, i was verbaly abused after asking if i could smoke. i didnt know their policies for first day arrivels and was confronted with the person in charge yelling at me, now why would you ask me such a stupid question. he embaresed me in front of the other patients. this same man also threatened me with physical violence on two occacions, one time putting his face within inches of mine. it was a very scarry envirment. i had heard in the past some people accuse rehab employees of being nazis, that is absurd. i have also known people who majored in psychology for an easy a. they also took advantage of an easy course to go to keg parties, use narcotics, and in some cases practise unsafe sex. upon graduating they realized they werent eligable, or qualified for well paying jobs as a result of that, they became very angry. employees of eagleville rehab do posess a good deal of responsability, as well as power. perhaps its their anger and power that leads them to believe they can abuse patients who are trying to stay alive, and improve their lives. if your intrested in being addmited into eagleville, i would suggest having a lawyer accompany you to their maine office to review your rights as a patient. perhaps demand the qualifications and work history of the people who will be treating and couseling you. these steps could possibly protect you from any kind of abuse. i have been sober for twenty years, and i assure you by no help from eagleville. my primary physician prescribed me antibuse. i kept using it it worked. good luck in your recovery no matter what path you take. being clean will give you a great new life.

  3. I’m an Eagleville alumni. I spent 6 days in detox on the acute unit and 25 days on the main unit. Overall, I was very satisfied with my treatment at Eagleville. I learned so much about myself and my addiction. I was able to develop and strengthen my support system.

    Recovery is what you make of it. While I was there, I reached out to my therapists and other patients for support. I participated in the art classes, NA meetings, fitness center, yoga, journal writing, and a variety of other activities. They will keep you busy there! After detox, sleeping through the day is not an option!

    Some of the staff are insensitive and unprofessional. For my recovery, I would avoid them and seek help from the people who truly care. I would not recommend Eagleville for people with physical disabilities (i.e. walker, wheelchair). People with physical disabilities got more help from other patients than they did from the staff.

    If you’re currently struggling with addiction, this place will help you to get the chemicals out of your body in a safe environment and if you want more help than that, they’ll give you the tools that you need to maintain sobriety.

    This is a horrible place ,unprofessional demeaning to the Patience . The therapists will make fun of you add you on trying get you into a fight to them it’s just a big game and it’s just a big joke and they do not care about the people within the facilities are there seeking help. My son went there to detox off of so Box and to get his life back in order and literally they treated him like ship and he ended up walking out and the doctor tried to over medicate him with methadone now why when you’re getting off a maintenance would you be put on methadone the lack of professionalism is just mind blowing there and it’s disgusting and I can’t wait for their almost 200 year anniversary hopefully the facility will be getting shut down they just went through a big overhaul of unionizing and it didn’t do Jack shet I know a nurse personally there I reached out master for help and she literally was the biggest jerk in my life that I ever I will never ask who give somebody shed when you ask for help about a facility that you work for that you know abuses your patience I’ve heard it come from your mouth.

  5. danielle the counselor there was sexually unprofessional. She made moves at my man and thought everything was so funny. These place is a joke and no one seems to regulate what they do here. Its like a run down cult facility. The counselor’s don’t care for the patients they just want their paychecks. If you don’t like your job go some where else and Danielle-if you want a man try a dating app.

  6. This facility is horrible. They over medicated my husband. Never contacted me when I called about a non HIPAA related item. He saw a therapist 3 times in 30 days. His counselor Danielle was snobby, and unprofessional. Dont call there because no one returns a phone call. The lack of compassion was horrible. This place should be shut down. Its filthy and run down. For 2260 a week you would expect better care, better employee relations to their patients, and better staff customer service. I would not send a family member here let alone my dog.

  7. the medical staff is careless and lazy. the patients are allowed to do whatever they want. this place should be shut down.

  8. My daughter was in eagleville, in her second week,17 people got thrown out for using drugs, that place is a joke, my advice is to find a different facility

    • DOES ANYONE ELSE KNOW ABOUT THE STATEMENT MADE ABOVE ABOUT PEOPLE BEING THROUGH OUT FOR DRUG USE? THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT BECAUSE JUST TODAY APRIL 15,2017,MY DAUGHTER AND SEVERAL OTHERS WHO WANTED TO STAY WERE MADE TO LEAVE. MY DAUGHTER HAD ONLY BEEN THERE SINCE MONDAY EVENING AND WAS DETOXED FROM SEVERE ALCHOLISM AND WAS MADE TO LEAVE TODAY ,SUPPOSEDLY BECAUSE OF INSURANCE. EVEN AFTER A DR. TELLING HER THAT IF SHE DRINKS AGAIN IT’S GOING TO KILL HER. SHE SLIPPED AND FELL JUST YESTERDAY AND FRACTURED HER COAX BONE AND STILL WAS RELEASED.AND TOLD TOO CALL HER INSURANCE COMPANY ON MONDAY. I WOULD THINK THAT IS THERE JOB TO DO. WITTH ALL THAT THEY COULD HAVE A LAWSUIT BROUGHT AGAINST THEM FOR THE FALL ALONE. THERE APPARENTLY WERE GIRLS ON THERE KNEES BEGGING FOR THE TO KEEP THEM THERE SO THEY COULD RECEIVE HELP. THIS IS RIDICULIOUS AND SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE WITH THE LACK OF HELP FOR ADDICTS.

  9. I went here at 22 as my first rebab..it was a nightmare.i didnt sleep or eat the whole time i was there..they did not medicate me correctly. I lost 15pounds in like 3 days. Very boring and they come shine a flash light in your face every hour all night..more like jail. I left after 3 days of vomiting and insomia
