Drug and Alcohol Treatment Centers York PA

As an interventionist and addiction therapist, one of the most common misconceptions I run across is the idea that somehow, addiction is a moral failing or learned behavior. In fact, some doctors, social workers and even counselors are still misinformed about the true causality of addiction. Many of the families that I encounter when performing the intervention process have been taught or still subscribe to this belief. Read for more.

In the late 1980’s Dr. E Daniel Martin, who was then a psychiatrist on the faculty of Pennsylvania State University’s College of Medicine at Hershey began to make public his desire and call to establish a professionally staffed, faith-based drug and alcohol treatment program. A business man in the community of Elizabethtown heard about Dr. Martin’s desire through his pastors, Norman and Jean Shenk. This businessman, Roy Souder, offered to donate a farm house and 25 acres of land between Elizabethtown and Middletown for this purpose. Dr. Martin invited a group of local business and professional persons to join him in forming a board to receive this generous gift and to develop this new program. The board, although initially associated with the Mennonite Church, had members from a variety of Christian denominations as members.

The new board was established as a 501(c) (3) tax exempt organization. The board chose the name “Naaman Center” after the biblical character, Naaman, who was healed of his leprosy after following God’s “steps to healing” by dipping in the river seven times. The board renovated the house to make offices conducive to the treatment of chemically dependent clients.

In September of 1990 Naaman Center was opened as an intensive outpatient drug and alcohol treatment program. Dr. Martin became the medical director of this program. Throughout the years Naaman Center has become integrated into the community through its close relationship with churches and other non-profit organizations. Fundraising has always been a priority because the Center was committed to treating people in the community regardless of their ability to pay.

Nestled in the tranquil countryside of Lancaster County, conducive to healing and growth and home to the Amish, you will find The Gate House programs. The Gate House programs are non profit community based treatment programs that have been providing quality addiction treatment in a home like environment since 1972.

The Gate House has been providing comprehensive care to women and men recovering from addiction by making available the most progressive treatment to address the context of addiction and empower individual recovery.

The residential programs, known as The Gate House for Men and The Gate House for Women, provide structured living and on-going treatment for adult men and women recovering from chemical dependency. Many people find that after they have completed an inpatient drug detox or treatment program, they need a more supportive alternative. The Gate House programs provide a safe place for people who need a little more time in a drug-free environment away from old people, places, and temptation where they can continue to stabilize before moving on. The length of stay varies. Both programs are licensed by the PA Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs and are recognized by the PA Client Placement Criteria at level 2B.

The Transitional Housing / Recovery House program provide a safe supportive living environment conducive to emotional and spiritual needs of an individual new to recovery.

All of The Gate House programs provides the client with quality, reality-oriented professional counseling services and basic life skills training so that they may fully develop. The treatment is based on the philosophy of Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, and principles of a holistic approach to recovery.

The location in the south central part of Pennsylvania provides easy access and borders Delaware, New Jersey and Maryland. We are located 90 minutes from Philadelphia and Baltimore. Both facilities are easily accessible from the PA Turnpike, Route 501 and Route 30.

Addiction and Intervention

Addiction and Intervention

Ben Seymour - 9/10/2007

As an interventionist and addiction therapist, one of the most common misconceptions I run across is the idea that somehow, addiction is a moral failing or learned behavior. In fact, some doctors, social workers and even counselors are still misinformed about the true causality of addiction. Many of the families that I encounter when performing the intervention process have been taught or still subscribe to this belief. In the beginning of the process they often report feelings of anger, hurt and betrayal. Many expect the intervention process to be one of consequences and punishment. However, this is not the case. Intervention is a process of love and education. Once the group is properly educated about the disease and sees that medical evidence has been discovered, the anger dissipates and a visible sense of compassion and understanding takes over. It is my belief that once the family, friends and co-workers are properly educated about addiction, any intervention is a successful one.

Addiction in the Media

Every time I turn on the TV I hear about which celebrity got a DUI or checked into rehab today. Yet the latest medical findings and addiction research rarely get any exposure. The American Medical Association (AMA) announced that they viewed alcoholism as a disease in 1956. In 1987 they included drug addiction to this category. So why in 2007, 20 years later, are we still debating whether addiction is a disease? What happened? The latest research proves that addiction is a disease of the brain which can be active prior to any substances being introduced to the body. Scientists have discovered specific differences in the genetic make-up of children born to alcoholic and addicted people. We have brain scans which visibly show the phenomena of craving in the brains of addicts when they are not using. The evidence is astounding and clearly points to the conclusion of addiction being a disease.

The fact is that many diseases are linked with unhealthy behavior. Clogged arteries, heart disease and acquired diabetes are usually the results of eating certain foods, lack of exercise and/or other unhealthy choices, yet no one goes to jail for eating potato chips. It is time for America to face the evidence that well over 80% of our prison populations are made up of untreated addicts. Treatment not only saves tax dollars, it saves lives.

The Role of Intervention

As I mentioned before, addiction and intervention are both hot topics in the media today. However, the majority of Americans still don’t understand what addiction and intervention really are. Many people believe that intervention is the ultimate showdown between the addict and the family. Families and spouses begin to adopt a punitive attitude about "making" the addict stop. They believe if they just threaten and punish the addict enough he or she will somehow "straighten up." Addiction Medicine shows us otherwise. Brain scans...
