Editorial Review
Susan Linney Reviews Contributor

Clarity Way is a residential treatment center located on 15 acres of grassy hillside land near South Central Pennsylvania. The facility offers luxury treatment for adult men and women struggling with alcohol and drug addiction. The duration of stay for the average patient is 30 days, however, there are also 60 and 90-day programs offered. Detox services are available for patients who need medical care before starting treatment.

As a non 12-step rehab, Clarity Way treats patients without relying on the principles of Alcoholics Anonymous. The facility combines individual counseling, group therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) with experiential therapies like psychodrama, neuro-biofeedback and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR). Holistic practices include yoga, Pilates, massage, fitness, meditation, nutrition education, life purpose coaching and acupuncture. There is a family program for loved ones interested learning more about the disease of addiction and working with the patient to improve communication.

With a patient population of less than 25, residents live in a small, community-oriented environment that fosters close relationships. Private rooms are available, and there is a gourmet kitchen that can be accessed for personal use in the evenings. Other amenities include a heated pool, two infra-red saunas, a fitness center, a business center, a full-size tennis and basketball court and an exercise studio. There is also a state-of-the-art recording studio— designed by Christopher Thorn of Blind Melon—where clients can create and record music.

Clarity Way has received mixed reviews. An anonymous user told “When the money runs out, so do they. No compassion once you've spent everything you have. They had a great level of care but were very expensive [and] could provide no assistance. So we drained my 401k which they were all too happy to take.” D.J. told Google Reviews: “It was more like a 30-day getaway in the woods then rehab. They insisted on making sure you saw every single therapist, so you never really could get comfortable with just one. I stayed in the cottage and had to fork out $40,000 for it.”

And G.C. took to Google Reviews to caution: “Clarity Way's website is 20% accurate and 80% false advertising. If you choose to go to Clarity Way, get everything in writing, especially if you are expecting services listed on their website.”

However, another anonymous alumni told Google Reviews: “I owe a lot to the team at Clarity Way. I am very grateful the care, understanding and right level of attention I have received. Great people and such a peaceful place.” E.C. wrote in to to say: “The staff is fantastic and they care for you.”

And family of former patients have been pleased with the treatment. An anonymous user told Google Reviews: “A loved one of mine entered rehab for a second time and this time went to Clarity Way. The treatment that was implemented and the care that was given was beyond exceptional. We now have hope and see a future. The facility is beautiful and the staff was amazing. I highly recommend this establishment.”'s Review Process
