Adult Partial Hospital Program (PHP) (Chester)

The Partial Program provides the close structure and support of inpatient rehabilitation in a less-restrictive environment. The PHP encompasses all the intensity and structure of our Inpatient programming while including an additional component: the participantís ongoing life. Throughout the treatment experience clinicians prepare the participant for the challenges faced outside the facility: (Home life, relationships, employment, cravings to use drugs or alcohol, peers and community, etc.) The clients are encouraged to discuss problems encountered, anticipate pending issues, and strengthen coping skills to overcome barriers to recovery.        

In addition to treating the primary substance abuse diagnosis, KeyStone Centerís PHP offers many focused activities to assist participants with co-occurring disorders. Each participant works individually with our treatment care team to design a personalized treatment plan that identifies and develops areas of needed growth. Medication management education, coping skills and education on the effects of co-occurring disorders are included in the focus of care.

Throughout the day participants attend several groups to assist people along all stages of recovery. Individual and family sessions are by appointment. All Partial patients are required to attend outside AA or NA meetings and share their experiences and perceptions with the group.

Our location a Ĺ block from KeyStone Centerís inpatient treatment center allows for efficient transfer of treatment when an individual needs a higher level of care. Our integration of IOP (Intensive Outpatient treatment) and Outpatient care with our partial programs allows for continuity of care as individuals move through the recovery process. Key Recovery Chester recognizes that for some who need this level of care attendance at a daytime partial program is difficult or impossible to schedule due to work, parental responsibilities or other life circumstances. To that end, we also offer an evening partial program to meet the needs of the community.  The evening program is tailored to meet the specific needs of the evening client, and covers all the topics and issues of the day program.

Adult Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) (Chester and Ambler)

Key Recovery's IOP is designed as an Early Recovery program focusing on the development of relapse prevention strategies and coping skills that a person needs to secure a sober, productive lifestyle. Our therapists assist each patient with understanding the contributing factors to their current situation and implementing the changes necessary to begin the process of recovery.

Our treatment plans will include: Family and significant other involvement; Planning for leisure time activities; Contact with referents, employers, or EAPs; and Adjunct services, such as referrals to community agencies, if needed. Individual sessions with the therapist throughout the program are a vital element in the treatment process and are scheduled with the assigned therapist.

Because a patient's progression into addiction can be precipitated by, strengthened by, or complicated by a mental health disorder, Key Recovery employs a dynamic and multifaceted approach for the Dual Diagnosis population. Psychiatric evaluation and medication monitoring are addressed through referrals made by Key Recovery's clinical staff.

Issues such as medication management; identifying signs and symptoms of the disorder; understanding how each disorder will impact the other; and acceptance of the dual diagnosis are addressed. Aftercare plans include appointments for ongoing monitoring of the disorders.

Length of stay is determined by severity of a person's problem and clinical necessity for treatment. Completion of treatment plan objectives and acceptance of a continuing care plan are required for successful discharge from the program.

Adolescent Services

Adolescent Partial Program (Chester)

KeyStone Center is proud to offer a unique and exciting Partial Program for Adolescents. Most partial programs for teens meet during the day, and require students to miss their home schoolís educational opportunities. And the educational elements offered through most partial programs are rudimentary at best.

KeyStone Center has created a partial program that allows our patients to remain in school and receive their much needed education while still providing the environment needed for significant recovery work.

Members meet four days each week for a total of 16 hours. Individualized treatment plans address each patientís unique needs and focus on substance abuse and co-occurring disorders as appropriate, and focus on coping skills and the development of support systems for recovery.

Our effective, ethical and efficient treatment utilizes random urine screens to enhance accountability. Our treatment team works to meet the individual needs of each adolescent who is referred. We include with appropriate consent: parents, school districts, probation officers, and other participants in the treatment process and pride ourselves on our effective communication with all those who share in the young personís care.

The Adolescent Partial provides continuous treatment throughout a connected milieu. Adolescents continue their work through all levels of outpatient care with the same therapist allowing for greater therapeutic rapport. Important relapse prevention issues such as emotions, peer relationships, family of origin, and triggers are examples of topics addressed during an adolescentís treatment.

Through the integration of group and individual therapy our patients are able to actively process and utilize skills learned throughout the treatment process. Teens identify and implement alternative coping strategies to substance use to deal with emotions and daily life. By experiencing intensive treatment four times weekly while negotiating their daily life, patients are able to utilize new skills and then process the outcomes of these skills in a supportive environment.

Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) (Chester and Ambler)

Key Recovery's adolescent intensive Outpatient Program is designed to meet the complex needs of today's adolescents. The program meets adolescents where they are in the process of change. The adolescent IOP is an excellent option for step down from Partial Hospital or Residential Treatment settings. Comprehensive assessment is utilized to develop an understanding of the severity of the adolescent's drug and alcohol problems and to assess the strengths of each individual admitted into the program. These strengths are then utilized to develop strength based treatment plan goals and develop new skills to aid in the process of change.

Areas addressed include but are not limited to the following: Introduction to the disease concept, Consequences, identifying triggers, developing sober leisure activities, developing sober support, introduction to the 12 step concept, and coping with family/school issues. The group sessions aid in the development of current strengths and how the client can utilize these strengths to change problematic behavior patterns related to drug and alcohol use and co-occurring disorders.

Key recovery addresses the complexity of substance problems and co-occurring disorders through the group therapy process and scheduled individual therapy. Family therapy is encouraged and can be scheduled through the adolescent's primary therapist. Bi-weekly contact (with client consent) with family members, referral sources, school districts, Student Assistance Professionals, the legal system, and other involved parties is our standard.

Length of stay is variable and is determined by the individual's progress, needs, and the service meeting clinical necessity. Completion of treatment is based on successful completion of treatment goals and the development of an aftercare plan.
