Addiction Treatment Programs at Cove Forge in Williamsburg, PA

Cove Forge Behavioral Health System provides comprehensive treatment programs for adult men and women who are struggling with addiction, as well as for those who are also experiencing a co-occurring mental health disorder.


Detoxification: When a person has become dependent upon certain substances, attempting to stop abusing those substances can be undermined by the presence of painful and potentially dangerous withdrawal symptoms. At Cove Forge Behavioral Health System, our inpatient nonhospital detoxification program at our treatment center is a medically monitored environment where safety is a top priority and unpleasant symptoms are significantly reduced. Individuals who need this type of help to rid their bodies of addictive substances benefit from round-the-clock nursing care, and can begin to participate in therapy while in this program, even before they complete detox and transition into residential rehabilitation. For example, individuals with mental health disorders will meet with a psychiatrist within three days of admissions, and then on an as-needed basis while in detox. The detox counselor conducts individual therapy sessions within 24 hours of admission to this treatment program and then on an as-needed basis while in detox. Also, detox counselors and technicians lead a variety of group therapy sessions each day. Typical length of stay in detox at our treatment center is three to five days.


Residential Rehabilitation: Our inpatient non-hospital rehabilitation program at our treatment center is designed to for adult men and women, ages 18 and above, who have a primary diagnosis of chemical dependency. During regular residential rehab, individuals may participate in a variety of therapeutic activities, including individual, group, family, and experiential therapy. Throughout their time in our regular residential rehabilitation program, individuals will participate in at least one 30-minute individual therapy session each week, with additional individual sessions available to be scheduled on an as-needed basis. Group therapy at our treatment center is a fundamental element of treatment in the regular rehabilitation program, with multiple sessions conducted every day. Family therapy sessions can be scheduled on an as-needed basis in this treatment program when appropriate and desired by the individual in treatment, and family members may also participate in our twice-weekly family program. Experiential therapies such as music group and exercise group are held on a regular basis in our treatment programs at our center. Those who are being treated for opioid dependence may also participate in our innovative H.O.P.E. program.

Dual Diagnosis

Dual Diagnosis: Individuals who are experiencing both a substance use disorder and a co-occurring mental health disorder can receive comprehensive care for both of these conditions in our inpatient nonhospital dual diagnosis rehabilitation program at our treatment center. This program is designed to provide diagnosis-specific, dual diagnosis treatment. Individuals in the dual diagnosis program receive both a chemical dependency counselor and a mental health counselor, which is unique from other treatment centers. Programming in the dual diagnosis group at our Williamsburg-based treatment center is tailored to meet all of those unique needs. Individuals may engage in mental health-specific groups and addiction-focused groups so that all of their concerns can be addressed. As is the case with those in the regular rehab program, individuals in the dual diagnosis program will have the opportunity to participate in individual, group, family, and experiential therapies, and those whose substance use disorder involved opioids may also benefit from our H.O.P.E. program.

Family Program

Family Program: The Family Program is open to any individuals in treatment and family members who desire to participate (special permission is needed for children under 12). The Family Program consists of a psychoeducational process in which the individual’s family learns about the disease of chemical dependency and the recovery process. Additionally, as part of this program, individuals and their family members and/or significant others may address issues that may be affecting the family’s ability to support the efforts of the individual in treatment at our center to achieve and maintain long-term recovery.

Music Program

Music program:  Our expanded music program at our treatment center involves music history and music appreciation, and also includes a performance group and a recording group. The purpose of this program is to allow individuals who have had a relationship with music, but who have either stopped or lost interest in that passion as a result of their substance abuse, to rediscover their passion. Individuals in the program write, produce, and record music. Performances are held and CDs are recorded as part of this program. This program has proven to be especially beneficial to individuals who are taking part in the H.O.P.E. Program.

H.O.P.E. Program

H.O.P.E. Program – Our Heroin Opiate Positive Experience (H.O.P.E.) Program is designed to help individuals who have struggled with opioid dependency to heal their brain and truly recover from the effects of a destabilized endorphin system. Individuals at our treatment center located in Williamsburg, PA who participate in the H.O.P.E. program will complete several activities that help encourage this positive transformation. Individuals who would benefit from participation in the H.O.P.E. program will be determined at the time of their admission.
