Review by Contributors


Since 1969, Treatment Trends, Inc., a social services agency in Allentown, Pa., has offered inpatient and outpatient treatment programs to the community. The agency operates Keenan House, a four-story residential treatment center for adult men, including veterans and those involved in the criminal justice system, in the heart of Allentown. Keenan House provides both short-term and long-term treatment levels depending on need. Detoxification services are not available on-site.


Before entering treatment at this facility, clients are first evaluated to make sure they meet eligibility requirements. The therapeutic community (TC) treatment model at Keenan House emphasizes interpersonal relationships and is based on the view that addiction is a complex and chronic disease. It utilizes the 12-Step model.

Treatment includes individual and group therapy with cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), reality therapy, and Gestalt therapy. Psycho-education classes combining didactic and experiential techniques are offered on a wide variety of topics, including grief, trauma, decision making, relapse prevention, and conflict resolution. Clients can also learn new knowledge and skills with classes on nutrition, computer skills, parenting, and social skills. Family therapy is also offered.

Keenan House offers a specialized treatment track for those struggling with co-occurring substance abuse and mental health issues. Clients are able to see a psychiatrist twice a week if needed. Veteran-specific services include medication management, Seeking Safety, art therapy, and yoga. Comprehensive aftercare planning is provided to those who complete the program.


The treatment team at Keenan House includes physicians, registered nurses, social workers, and certified addiction counselors.


Few details on accommodations and related offerings are available on the facility’s website at the time of this writing, however, it does note there are 95 beds.


No alumni reviews to were available at the time of this writing. On Google, the facility averaged a rating of two out of five stars from four reviews.[1] One alum, J.F., posted a one out of five star review and wrote: “Dirty facility. Staff is very unprofessional.” In contrast, the facility’s Facebook page, which it has the ability to manage, included 10 mostly positive reviews with an overall average of 4.5 out of five stars.[2] “The Keenan House was a life changing experience for me. The many wonderful things i have gained and taken with me, most important learning who i am and want to be,” an alum, A.Z., wrote in August 2015.


Reviews from loved ones were limited at the time of this writing, however, the two reviews to were mixed. Both gave four and five out of five stars for treatment effectiveness, counseling options, and accommodations. In addition, both rated staff experience and treatment affordability five out of five stars. However, both noted that although treatment was effective, they wanted more participation in their loved one’s treatment. “The phone calls were very little and i wasn't included in his treatment,” an anonymous loved one wrote.

Elsewhere, reviews from family and friends are also mixed and vary from one to five out of five stars. “Horrible place staff is unprofessional they lie don't send your loved ones here,” a loved one named K.H. wrote on Google. In contrast, J.M., whose husband was treated at Keenan House wrote on Facebook: “Its such a amazing place if you take it serious thanks again for helping our family and teaching my fiance how to deal with his recovery.”


According to a brochure published by the facility, clients are referred and funded by their county Drug and Alcohol agency or various criminal justice agencies.

They seemed to have helped my husband. The phone calls were very little and i wasn't included in his treatment. I would have liked to be able to see and talk to my husband more, in 3 months i onlyseen him 1 time.
