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

  • 12-Step
    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.

  • 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.

Clinician was young and able to relate to my daughter. Strictly 12-step. Would have preferred more education in dual- diagnosis. It served its purpose at the time of need.. Got her into treatment away from the situation. Relapsed 3 days after discharge. Program would benefit from a new approach. Everyone's experience is different. Also depends on the patients willingness to change. Do your research ..

This place was by far the worst rehab ever. I was constantly hungry there, the staff was horrible, they never took anything serious. It was a nightmare. I would not recommend this place to anyone. I think I rather be in jail than there. I literally have nightmares about this place all the time and get sick when I think about it. Also, they don\'t tell you that its a program so you\'re stuck there for atleast 35 days. And if you get signed out you pay out of pocket for your treament, your insurance wont cover it. Its a complete joke, theyre money hungry and dont care about your recovery at all.

Going here was one of the worst experiences I\'ve had. Everything about this place is terrible. More like an episode of scared straight. Staff was ridiculous, meals where below subpar and had you hungry 24/7. Treatment plans where a joke. Relapsed one day after leaving.

Do the kids here get to communicate at all with one another as far as the opposite sex goes? Is there anyway for the females to communicate with the males or vise versa and/or even if not permitted does/can it happen anyways?

Will

the kids have no coed interaction and are punished for trying. night staff was the only real help, thereapists and the physiatrist were a joke, didnt see the individual as a individual kinda generalized everything. note the gallery on thepyriamid healthcare website doesnt show the sleeping qourters or the group thereapy rooms. the place was rundown and money hungry, didnt stay clean long after leaving but i wasnt readdy anyway. still id take my buisness elsewere

I would not recommend sending your child here. The facility is extremely disorganized, poor nutritional foods (and hardly fed), and poor accommodations. You only sit there reading articles/filling out worksheets, rather than learning hands-on with learning to grow mentally, emotionally, physically, spiritually, and socially. You are fed 3 times a day (one plate per person with no seconds) and only 2 snacks per day. During the weekends you mainly sit and watch movies (by the way, no source of exercising as well). Nothing involved with recovering. The schooling is poor. Everything about this facility is terrible (from personal experience). After relapsing, I went to Caron Treatment Center in Wernersville, PA. Best decision I ever made. It was heaven compared to this facility. Do not send your child here! Send your child/loved one to Caron! Best regards.
