Geisinger Behavioral Health Centers

Moosic’s trusted addiction treatment center

Addiction can be a devastating and destructive disorder, but it is treatable. People who receive appropriate professional help can learn to manage their symptoms and live healthier, fuller lives.

When you choose to get care at an inpatient treatment facility like Geisinger Behavioral Health Center Northeast, you can work with a compassionate team of multidisciplinary professionals who have extensive experience treating people who have a dual diagnosis. Specifically, we offer co-occurring addiction treatment for those who also have mental health concerns.

Every person who receives addiction treatment services at our facility can see us as a reliable partner in their healing and recovery process.

Therapies we use to treat co-occurring addiction

Our therapies and services are based on the most up-to-date, reliable scientific evidence available. Examples of the addiction treatments we offer include:

  • Evidence-based practices: Evidence-based practices are treatment approaches that have been proved effective through research and not just through professional experience. In addition, evidence-based practices can include measurable and definable outcomes.
  • Trauma-informed care: Using trauma-informed care, mental health professionals account for the possibility of trauma in a patient’s background to avoid triggering or retraumatizing them during treatment.
  • Creative arts therapies: Creative arts therapies use art-based activities, such as writing, painting, dancing and music, to help patients express themselves and address painful experiences or feelings.

Benefits of addiction treatment

Addiction treatment can provide you with many physical, emotional and social benefits and can help you maintain long-term recovery. At an inpatient addiction treatment center, you can focus all your attention on the healing process and avoid triggers that can be part of daily life. This focused experience can help you build your confidence in a safe place.

What you take from your time at our inpatient hospital will depend on your needs and treatment goals. Our patients can benefit from the following features of addiction treatment at our facility:

  • Drug-free environment: Being in a place where you don’t have access to addictive substances is a great benefit of inpatient addiction treatment. Removing this temptation allows you to step away from the pressures of daily living and focus on healing.
  • Therapy: In therapy, you can work on understanding your relationship to addiction. These sessions can also be a time when you can discuss your goals, hopes and fears while receiving guidance from a behavioral health professional.
  • Education: While you’re in treatment at an inpatient facility, you can gain valuable information about addiction and the process of recovery. You can also learn and practice skills for resolving inner conflicts and working through stressful situations in a healthy way.
  • Support: Addiction can feel isolating and can take a toll on your relationships with family and friends. At an inpatient facility, you can benefit from the support of a professional team that can work with you on healing so that you can repair these important relationships.

How to help a loved one who needs addiction treatment

Learning how to help your loved one can bring you peace of mind. You can even play an important role in helping them decide to receive addiction treatment. To provide the most effective support, you can:

  • Educate yourself: Research addiction, treatment and recovery. Understanding addiction and how it is treated can help you find compassion for your loved one and the difficulty they might be facing. By finding out more about addiction treatment, you can also be better prepared to provide your loved one with meaningful support as they decide what type of treatment program is best for them.
  • Listen to your loved one: Understanding a loved one who is dealing with substance abuse and addiction can be hard. They may respond to your questions and attempts to understand them with hostility and anger or even denial. Even if it is difficult, offering to listen to a friend or loved one can show them that they can come to you when they’re ready to get help.
  • Express yourself to your loved one: Talking to your loved one about how the addiction they have is affecting you can be overwhelming, but it is important to continue sharing your feelings with them. Discussing addiction treatment with your loved one may become necessary and even life-changing.
  • Get help from trained professionals: Don’t try to help your loved one by yourself. Find trusted friends and family members who can support you as you move through emotionally difficult times. In some cases, it may be useful to get professional help as well. If you ignore your own emotional needs, it may make it harder to support your friend or family member as they work toward recovery.
