Foundations Wellness Center of Pennsylvania Philosophy

You don’t have to go through the process of recovery alone. Foundations Wellness Center specializes in the behavioral health care for the treatment of substance abuse, drug addiction, or alcoholism. We offer a variety of levels of care because we understand that there are multiple paths to recovery. All levels of care offer individualized treatment plans, as each patient needs a unique program designed specifically for their needs.

Areas of Specialization

  • Client & Family Support Groups
    Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.

  • Family Program
    Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.

With that experience, so much would be learned, observed, and implemented.Davin’s dedication to the clients he serves comes from an eclectic viewpoint of addiction. His eclectic perspective conceptualizes addiction as a symptom of an underlying issue related to faulty core beliefs, irrational thinking, and fears experienced in life that condition an individual to resort to the use of substances to cope. Davin’s eclectic philosophy is evident in the daily programming and variety of services offered at his current place of employment.

Review by Contributors


Located in York, Penn., Foundations Wellness Center of Pennsylvania offers a range of services for individuals who are struggling with addiction including intensive outpatient programs, outpatient treatment, and partial hospitalization programs, which about 15 percent of all treatment centers in Pennsylvania offer. Foundation Wellness Center also operates another facility located in Port St. Lucie, Fla.


According to Foundations Wellness Center's website, each client receives an individualized treatment plan, which is designed based on their needs. Each client may participate in a range of approaches including trauma resolution, faith-based, family wellness, and employee assistance.

During partial hospitalization programs (PHP), clients are in an environment with 24-hour care, and are provided an extensive relapse prevention plan. Clients participate in more than 40 hours of treatment each week and live in a separate housing component. Treatment typically includes both group and individual therapy, mental health psychiatric evaluations, life-skill education, and recovery education.

Individuals in the intensive outpatient program (IOP) attend between nine and 21 hours of treatment each week. Like PHP, programming usually includes group and individual counseling, life skills, and employment assistance, and resume building. This program is designed to help clients prepare for a sober life.

Following IOP, the final phase is outpatient treatment, which is between one to three hours of treatment a week. Outpatient treatment is used as follow-up care to ensure clients are transitioning back into the community well, and offers aftercare recommendations. Programming includes individual counseling sessions and participating in the alumni program.


Foundations Wellness Center's website notes the treatment team includes therapists and a clinical director. Many team members have struggled with substance abuse in the past.
