ABOUT COVE FORGE BEHAVIORAL HEALTH
Located on a quiet, 70-acre campus by the Juniata River in Williamsburg, Penn., Cove Forge Behavioral Health offers short-term residential treatment for individuals struggling with addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders. This facility is one of just 46 (9.2 percent of 502 total) non-hospital Pennsylvania facilities to provide residential detoxification services.
The center’s Heroin Opiate Positive Experience (H.O.P.E.) program serves individuals in early stages of recovery through holistic therapies. Cove Forge also offers intensive outpatient programming (IOP) in Erie and Pittsburgh.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Clients may begin treatment at Cove Forge Behavioral Health with three to five days of 24-hour, nursing-supported detox. Medication-assisted treatment, including Suboxone, is available to manage withdrawal symptoms, but not as a maintenance program. Vivitrol, which just over a third (36.3 percent) of Pennsylvania’s facilities provide, is also available as a recovery support for alcohol and opioid dependence.
A typical residential program is two to four weeks, according to the facility’s website. Residents can expect to participate in individual counseling at least once a week and receive dual diagnosis treatment, which may include medication management, as needed.
Among the modalities practiced are cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), rational-emotive behavior therapy (REBT), family interactional therapy, and reality/choice therapy. Group options include music therapy, gender-specific, and spirituality counseling. The H.O.P.E. program emphasizes endorphin production through diet, supplements, exercise, “brain retraining,” gratitude, humor, and music therapy.
Cove Forge Behavioral Health’s medical director is certified by the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM). The treatment team includes psychiatrists and certified addiction and co-occurring disorder counselors.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
According to a Cove Forge website video, the Williamsburg campus serves up to 270 patients. The facility provides transportation for clients to begin their treatment, and alumni groups meet regularly on and off campus. In addition to daily ropes course activities, residents have access to walking trails, picnic tables, an on-site gym equipment, a recording studio, and arts and crafts activities, which include drawing and woodworking groups.
