ABOUT EAGLEVILLE HOSPITAL IN EAGLEVILLE, PA

Eagleville Hospital, located in Eagleville, Pa., offers detoxification and residential treatment to adults ages 18 and older who are struggling with addiction. Eagleville Hospital is a non-profit organization located on 40 wooded acres in the Philadelphia suburbs. The facility has been in existence for more than 100 years, and hosted the first Narcotic Anonymous meeting on the East Coast in 1969.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

To be admitted, clients may call the facility’s admissions line 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Admissions priority is given to pregnant injection drug users, pregnant substance users, injection drug users, overdose survivors, and veterans.

Eagleville Hospital’s treatment program uses 12-step programming along with evidence-based practices such as motivational interviewing (MI), Thinking For a Change, interactive journaling, trauma informed care, transtheoretical model of change, and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).

Throughout treatment, clients participate in individual and group therapy, personal development activities, educational seminars, G.E.D. test preparation classes, and 12-step meetings. Eagleville also offers medication assisted treatment (MAT) and dual diagnosis treatment for clients who need it. Detoxification treatment lasts five days on average and is usually followed by residential treatment.

The facility offers unique treatments and therapy including yoga, meditation, art therapy, recreational therapy, music group, and the opportunity to tend plants in the Eagleville greenhouse. Although the facility does not have a formal aftercare program, clients who have successfully completed treatment are invited to join the facility’s alumni association, Friends of Eagleville.

I was unsatisfied with the care as I was being treated for alcohol abuse/alcoholism, during my entire stay I never attended an AA meeting. All meetings in the area where I was were Narcotics Anonymous. Thank god I found AA upon discharge.

The facility's strengths are they have great programs of all sorts for any patient. The facility's weaknesses are they sometimes do not give enough encouragement to the patient on not giving up. I'd say all in all its a good treatment center. Really helped my loved one but wish he would have stayed longer.

I went to eagleville last year for detox. Stayed 5 days felt like a lifetime. And left with a huge black and blue from them taking my blood. Staff treated me like I was an inmate in prison. It was hell. Save yourself a sign out and do NOT go there!!!!

One of my family members attended there and i visited him and the staff were horrible and rude, there were two nice nurses but everyone else were very rude. Not to mention the outside looks so nice but when you get inside it's dirty and disgusting. I would not recommend anyone to attend this place.

Do not go here, I relapsed after 9 months after I went to a faith based program. Instead of gonna back to that place I went to Florida. They keep you busy during the day but offer no aftercare program-- its one person on Craigslist looking for housing.

I believe this facility is awesome and has great counselors that are ex addicts/alcoholics which in my opinion are better equipped to help other addicts and/or alcoholics. The counseling and 12-step introduction was excellent.

I worked as a Certified Peer Specialist with people who have substance abuse and mental illness. Overall, I would rate this facility a B- . They have qualified doctors and staff. The patients have many freedoms that most facility do not allow. It's a recovery oriented facility. However, the patient stays are too short.

I've been in this industry for over ten years and have built three different types of facilities. This is by far the worst in terms of detox protocol especially for alcohol dependency or benzos... Guess what? Five years of heavy Benzo use gets you the same protocol as a user of five weeks.

The facility includes staff members who are themselves in recovery, which can be a vitally important aspect to a client’s treatment. Overall I would say that Eagleville is a well-balanced treatment center. I would certainly recommend Eagleville to someone with drug/alcohol issues.

Case managers ... were wonderful in my daughter's discharge planning. [Staff member] especially was very knowledgable and empathetic. I have seen other facilities with posh surroundings, but posh surroundings do not get the job done. In speaking with my daughter she states the therapy was excellent and she has learned some valuable tools. She is just beginning her journey and she has a good start.

This and many rehabs work if you stay long enough. We find this facility, like all rehabs, are expensive and don't treat addicts long enough. 90 days covered by insurance is the best way. It is big enough that you can get a bed.

No 12 step mtg. Disgusting living conditions. 3 people to a room and personal belongings every where. Broken mirrors, dirt and mold everywhere. Not enough counseling or life solutions discussed. No after care. Women and men in the same unit and not enough supervision...They need to redo the entire facility for health and cleanliness. They need to form a treatment program to address the different addictions they treat. They need to keep women, men and juveniles separate. The need a better nutritional program (my friend gained 30 lbs in 3 weeks).
