Pyramid Healthcare - Quakertown Teen Residential Inpatient Treatment Center Philosophy
Pyramid Quakertown is an inpatient adolescent drug and alcohol treatment facility located in Quakertown, Pennsylvania for teens struggling with co-occurring substance abuse and mental health disorders. We offer separate programming for boys and girls in a structured setting designed to engage the adolescent in treatment, school, recreational and community service activities during all waking hours.
Areas of Specialization
The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.
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.
