Clarity Way Philosophy
Clarity Way takes a multi-sensory and multidisciplinary approach to addiction treatment. The residential drug and alcohol rehab center, which is located in Hanover, Pennsylvania, utilizes a variety of treatment modalities to heal the mind, body and spirit. With less than 20 individuals admitted at a time, Clarity Way creates a personal, intimate, and comfortable environment for clients to identify and address the issues that contribute to their substance abuse. Luxury accommodations allow each individual to recover in comfort as he or she builds a foundation for a life of sobriety.
Areas of Specialization
Creative Arts Therapy
Writing, making art or engaging in theater can be deeply therapeutic for people working to recover from addiction. Many facilities offer one or several forms of creative arts therapy as a way to help patients learn to express their feelings in productive ways.
Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.
Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment
These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.
Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Thank you so very much for thinking about our daughter as she turns the one year milestone of sobriety. This week our entire extended family will attend a support group meeting recognizing her achievement. It's a happy time for all of us and I credit Clarity Way for giving her the tools to deal with the devil of substance abuse.- John R.
Had my son not gotten to Clarity Way when he did I don't think he ever would have even had a chance at recovery. Through the time spent at your facility he was able to be himself again, and to gain tools to be able to continue his recovery after leaving your center. I'm so thankful that we found you, you put our family back together.- Sarah Y., California
When you go to treatment, you expect that most of what you're told is exaggerated. You expect the facility to be nice, but not quite how the center describes it - in this point, I was mistaken, it actually exceeded my expectations. You expect the therapy to be good, but not spot on with addressing your needs - in this point, I was again mistaken, as it also exceeded my expectations. Clarity Way has been an excellent experience for me and for my family - the individual time was key for my recovery and to assist my family so that we could move forward together. I can't speak highly enough of the therapy team, the medical staff and the support staff. Across the board, everyone was wonderful and motivating in the ways that were appropriate for me.- Trevor J.
My family gave up on me wholly and closed me out of their lives. Clarity Way was their absolute last effort, and I was totally against it at first. Through working with the therapists on staff, and with everyone else at the facility, I was able to open up and deal with some very deep-set issues. I also was able to reconnect with my family, and am better for it. We're all more healthy and balanced since I've been to CW, and I am thankful ever day for the opportunity that I had to experience such an amazing facility and recovery philosophy.- Becky G., Connecticut
I never thought I could be sober and I never knew what was wrong with me and why I had the problems that I did, but I learned through my stay at Clarity Way that I could find recovery. I learned that there is nothing wrong with me, but that I have an addiction, and I learned how to deal with it. I didn't know I could be sober, but Clarity Way showed me that it's possible, even for me, and I remain sober today.- John D., Texas
