Located on the outskirts of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in the Kennedy Township, Laurel Care is a broad behavioral health facility that provides a full continuum of services for clients struggling with addiction and co-occurring disorders. In addition to detox and inpatient treatment, those seeking more flexible care can also attend outpatient, Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) and Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP) as well.
Treatment and Staff
Before beginning treatment, clients go through an initial intake and assessment process to help the staff members determine their needs. Those in need of detox can do so on-site before continuing on with a program. Although each features many of the same practices, they do differ in intensity. Standard outpatient meets for one to two times a week for an hour per session for between 26 to 52 weeks (this is typically an extended aftercare option). IOP meets four to five times a week, one to one-and-a-half hours per session for eight to 12 weeks. Finally, PHP meets four times a week for eight hours a day for two to four weeks.
Treatment typically consists of both group and individual therapy rooted in evidence-based treatment practices including CBT, DBT and Motivational Interviewing (MI). Additional methodologies can include biofeedback, neurofeedback and experiential therapy as well. Participants are also expected to work a 12-step program. While basic support for dual diagnosis issues is available, those in need of more intensive psychiatric care may need to get additional help elsewhere.
The staff at Laurel Care consists of MDs, nurses, LPCs, case managers and additional Master’s-level counselors.
As mentioned, Laurel Care is a broad organization with treatment available at all levels; once clients complete one tier, they can move between the others as they see fit. Family therapy is also available in all the above programs. As mentioned, those who complete a primary care regimen can work with staff members to develop step-down aftercare plans as well.
Overall, Laurel Care provides many different services for clients of all ages struggling with addiction and related behavioral health issues. Treatment plans are individualized and include evidence-based care, 12-step integration, dual diagnosis support and medical oversight as well. While the cost of care may vary by insurance, Laurel Care provides a full continuum of care options for clients in the area.
