Founded in 1983, Pennsylvania Counseling Services (PCS) began in the home of Dr. Roy A Smith. Through the years, the company has grown tremendously through the efforts of many and now consists of 17 clinics serving seven counties throughout south central Pennsylvania. PCS offers outpatient treatment to adults and adolescents struggling with addiction and mental health issues. The services at PCS include individual, group and family therapy. Dr. Smith still serves as the CEO and directs the management team for all 17 clinics.
Treatment and Staff
PCS provides a nurturing environment for clients to achieve recovery, and as a multi-disciplinary practice, offers a broad range of outpatient and Intensive Outpatient (IOP) services for adults, young people and their families. An initial assessment of the client’s specific history and needs forms the basis for an individualized treatment plan. Most plans consist of a combination of individual and group therapy which are usually scheduled as one to three-hour sessions, four to six days a week. This therapy is CBT-based and treatment is conducted by staff members who are CSAC, CADC and CASAC credentialed. Clinics also have an LPN, psychologist and social worker on-site. Co-occurring disorders are also treated.
Part of the aftercare provided by PCS is access to the Lebanon Recovery Center. This facility provides programs for those clients now in the recovery community to assist in rebuilding their lives, including vocational training, education opportunities, job counseling, computer and telephone access, life skills groups, relapse prevention and 12-step meetings.
In addition to the above mentioned services, PCS also provides specialized treatment for eating disorders, sexual addiction, anger management, ADHD, depression, anxiety and play therapy.
PCS not only strives to help clients achieve sobriety but it also strives to help clients find spiritual, emotional and behavioral growth. Once sobriety is achieved, the PCS staff is committed to helping the client develop healthy relationships and thrive in recovery. With many locations throughout the state of Pennsylvania, treatment is conveniently located for anyone who seeks it. The professional staff is committed to treating clients in the way that best suits their chances for recovery and conducts this treatment with compassion, intelligence and humor. PCS accepts almost all major insurances and clients who choose to self-pay will be charged on a sliding scale.
