Treatment Insights

At the Keystone Center, we acknowledge that the change process is different for every person. One way in which we frame a person’s desire or intention to change is through a model called the Stages-of-Change, which is also known as the Transtheoretical Model. This model suggests that making a difficult change such as stopping the abuse of drugs or alcohol takes place in different stages.

Group therapy was good but lacked in family counseling

WOW!!! Where to begin...First I\'d say my counselor tried in all aspects except aftercare housing. All that was offered was recovery houses in Kensington... YIKES... I was able to make phone calls and...


Program for insured clients was good. Lack of nutritional needs for clients with food allergies or intolerences. Good solid program for insured clients. Accepts state insurance.


Strengths: In the Freedom Group, small groups, strength of the counselors, continuity of the staff, counselors in the freedom group have over 100 years clean/sober time.


I wish they emphasized more family involvement.


I liked the rehab because it was close to home and I felt safe. However, I did not enough how they mixed detox with straight rehab.


Meeting with recovered alcoholics from outside the facility were really helpful. However, they lacked adequate 12-step literature. Had a spiritual awakening at the emergency room, when I went for an i...

The counselors were great. However, there were too many patients; ask to be put on the third floor.


This facility is horrible and unsafe; I feel as though they have no control over the patients and their behaviors. I am still motivated for recovery and I get the help I need from Alcoholics Anonymous...


After more than 6 years, I am still clean.


The program was great and the treatment was exceptional. It was the community in which it was located and the other patients there that made it a bad stay. Even though I didn't personally pay for the ...


Almost everyone there was court mandated. Very overcrowded. 10 smoke breaks a day was ok, but since it was located in a heavy drug zone, I'm sure kids accessed drugs that way.

Areas of Focus
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.

Dual Diagnosis/ Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.
