Providence Treatment Review
Providence Treatment offers multi-level outpatient treatment for professionals near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Established in 2015, the center specializes in treating executives, healthcare professionals, attorneys and pilots whose substance abuse can be impacted by the demands and circumstances of their professions. According to its website, “’providence’ means ‘timely preparation for future eventualities’ and we are 100% focused on preparing our clients for a future that includes fulfilling professional careers and personal lives.”
Providence has a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and standard outpatient program. Clients can also elect to stay at its nearby luxury sober living homes while they complete outpatient treatment.
Treatment and Staff
Clients are asked to make an initial three-month commitment to treatment. After their initial treatment plan, they can extend treatment as long as its beneficial; some current clients have been in the program since its inception.
Treatment begins with a bio-psycho-social-assessment and then clients are placed on an appropriate treatment track. PHP clients attend group therapy six days a week from 9am to 2pm. IOP clients usually attend group therapy 3 to 4 evenings a week, and standard outpatient clients usually attend group therapy once or twice a week. All clients have individual therapy at least once a week and unrinalysis as often as their professional organization requires.
Groups usually have fewer than 10 participants and are led by LCSWs and CADCs. Providence also works with a medical doctor and psychiatrist to provide primary care consultation and dual-diagnosis support, including medication management.
Therapy uses a number of evidence-based modalities, including EMDR and CBT. Providence also has a strong holistic component to treatment. Clients participate in experiential therapy such as art and music therapy and are encouraged to partake in spiritual practices. Providence spiritual advisor, Rev. Sandy Morris, encourages and teaches mindfulness techniques, including silent meditation.
Clients are required to participate in 12-step fellowships while in treatment. Initially, clients must attend two 12-step meetings each day. As they progress, the frequency required lessens but all clients attend meetings several times each week throughout treatment.
Clients who would benefit from structured living while in treatment can stay at Providence’s two nearby sober living residences. Residents have roommates in the gender-specific homes. The men’s residence has 10 beds and the women’s has three beds. The well-appointed homes have a comfortable, traditional décor. The kitchen staff prepares gourmet meals during the week and residents cook for themselves on the weekends. For recreation, clients watch TV in the homes’ common areas and exercise at the nearby YMCA.
Extensive family and couples therapy is available. Providence also offers acupuncture and nutritional counseling.
Providence Treatment is dedicated to helping Philadelphia-area professionals conquer their substance abuse and lead healthier lives at work and at home. Its responsive treatment tracks and evidence-based and holistic practices ensure that clients address their addiction from multiple angles while integrating treatment into their daily lives. With its significant peer support meeting requirement and family therapy, clients are sure to leave treatment with a healthy network of sober support.
