Discovery House Duncansville Comprehensive Treatment Center is a premier provider of medication assisted treatment for those who are grappling with opioid addictions. Supplying programming options for adults aged 18 and older, Discovery House Duncansville Comprehensive Treatment Center offers a full spectrum of care that involves a mixture of therapeutic treatments and the use of safe and effective medications.

With a staff comprised of talented and experienced nurses, physicians, and counselors, Discovery House Duncansville Comprehensive Treatment Center  is capable of providing patients with a warm and inviting environment that supports them throughout their journey towards recovery. When individuals who are battling with an addiction to opioids, such as heroin or prescription painkillers, come to us for care, our kind and understanding team of professionals work endlessly to supervise the prescription and the administration of medications to ensure that each patient is obtaining the most safe and effective treatment that will encourage a positive outcome. The medications that we supply include:

  • Methadone
  • Subutex
  • Suboxone

The type of medication that is prescribed, along with the dosage, will be recommended based on the patient’s treatment needs. One of our qualified physicians can make any necessary adjustments to this medication and/or dosage as needed, as the care we provide is individualized to meet the needs of each patient.

To fully supply each patient with a comprehensive approach to opioid addiction treatment, we believe strongly that therapeutic interventions must be included into the treatment plans that are created for patients. We feel that it is critical for patients to understand the hidden causes behind why they started abusing opioids. Additionally, we work to provide patients with a positive outlet for the emotions they experience while going through recovery. The support that patients can obtain from developing a network of peers who have shared in similar battles is also highly beneficial at this time. Therefore, we are proud to offer the below listed treatment modalities:

  • Individual therapy
  • Group therapy

*Providers: Acadia Healthcare employs internal Physician Recruiters who can introduce you to any open vacancies within the company.
