ABOUT KEYSTONE CENTER
Located on a historic, tree-lined estate in suburban Chester, Pa., the KeyStone Center offers medical detox and a wide range of residential and outpatient programs for adults struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. There are also specialized tracks for sex addiction, gambling addiction, and young adults (ages 18 to 26).
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
According to the facility’s website, KeyStone’s programming is based on the 12-Steps. For clients struggling with opiate addiction, a Subutex program is offered.
Detox is offered on an extended-stay, detox plus rehab program: the length of stay is generally 21 to 35 days. Treatment is based on the Stages of Change Model and uses the 12-Steps alongside evidence-based techniques such as motivational interviewing (MI) and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).
Clients participate in daily group counseling as well as relapse prevention training, strategies for managing mental health systems, and family therapy. An aftercare specialist helps clients develop a plan for after treatment.
A longer-term residential program with a variable length of stay offers many of the same modalities, plus a focus on goal setting, group motivation, and re-engaging a sober support network.
Treatment for sexual compulsivity and trauma plus co-occurring disorders is offered from a separate 16-bed extended-care center. The minimum length of stay is 30 days. In other dedicated programming, a young adult track offers demographic-specific group therapy topics and family systems therapy. Additionally, a gambling track offers financial planning training alongside traditional therapies.
Outpatient services are offered from separate facilities in Brookhaven and Ambler, Pa. They include a partial hospitalization program (PHP), intensive outpatient program (IOP), and general outpatient programming for adults. There are also IOP and general outpatient programs for adolescents.
According to the center’s website, KeyStone’s staff includes psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, registered nurses, master’s level counselors, and certified addiction specialists. The 13 people surveyed on the staff’s level of experience and training at the time of this writing gave it an average rating of 4.15 out of five stars.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Treatment is provided at a Victorian mansion built in 1891, the center’s website indicates. The 13 individuals polled on the facility’s cleanliness at the time of this writing gave it an average rating of 4.1 out of five stars.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
Of the 15 alumni polled by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing, nine were positive. The nine alumni who were polled on different metrics gave the center 4.4 out of five stars when asked if they would recommend Keystone Center.
They rated the center’s holistic offerings the worst with 2.1 stars, and exercise and leisure with 2.8 stars. Yet, they rated the center’s affordability the best with 4.3 stars, and the staff’s level of experience and training with four stars.
Several alumni repeatedly praised the staff and the level of structure found at this facility, as well as what Richard described as the “deep focus on group experience.” Several also wrote that treatment had been successful for them.
On the other hand, some alumni complained of overcrowding “They treat the patient's like cattle” Richard wrote. In other recurring criticism, some clients complained about the court-mandated clientele, who they felt lacked commitment. Others criticized the physical location. “It was located in a heavy drug zone, I'm sure kids accessed drugs that way,” V.R.S. wrote.
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
Of the five individuals polled by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing, three gave positive reviews, and two provided neutral reviews. Three loved ones gave the facility five out of five stars for its overall treatment effectiveness.
The four individuals polled on a variety of the facility’s other metrics gave the center 4.5 out of five stars for its counseling options, and 3.25 stars for holistic offerings.
The group counseling won recurring praise. “They have a lot of good therapy groups but they make them fun so people don't lose attention,” one anonymous loved one wrote. Isolated praise was awarded to the staff, and isolated criticism to the food options, the family program, and the length of treatment.
According to the facility’s website, KeyStone accepts self-payment and some insurance policies, though details of insurers are not provided. The center receives state funding for uninsured clients who require treatment for compulsive gambling.
