ABOUT KEYSTONE CENTER
Located on a historic, tree-lined estate in suburban Chester, Penn., the KeyStone Center offers a wide range of residential, outpatient, and partial hospitalization (PHP) programs for adults struggling with substance use and co-occurring disorders. There are also programs for sex addiction, gambling addiction, and a specialized track for young adults, ages 18 to 26. Medical detox, which is only available in 8.1% of Pennsylvania facilities, is also offered on-site.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Upon admission, clients undergo an initial evaluation to determine individual needs and appropriate level of care. According to the facility’s website, KeyStone’s programming is based on the 12-step model of recovery. For clients struggling with opiate addiction, medication-assisted treatment (MAT) that utilizes Subutex, is available.
Detox is offered on an extended-stay stay basis. The length of stay is generally 21 to 35 days. Treatment is based on the Stages of Change Model, 12-step immersion, as well as evidence-based techniques such as motivational interviewing (MI) and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).
Spirituality is incorporated into the program as well. The facility's website states that "clinical staff prioritizes relationships in a patient’s life: relationship with self, Higher Power, and others."
Clients participate in daily group counseling, as well as relapse prevention training, strategies for managing mental health systems, and family therapy. An aftercare specialist also helps clients develop a discharge plan.
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 is offered at 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 along with other traditional therapies.
Outpatient services are offered at separate facilities in Brookhaven and Ambler, Pa. They include a partial hospitalization program (PHP), intensive outpatient program (IOP), and general outpatient programming for adults. IOP and general outpatient programs are also available for adolescents.
