Cove Forge is set amidst 75-forested acres along the Juniata River in Williamsburg, Pennsylvania. Cove Forge offers patients a setting conducive to recovery.

Clients begin to learn increased self-awareness, gain an understanding of their interpersonal relationships and receive an education on the disease of chemical dependency. Cove Forge BHS provides a continuum of care that is carefully customized to the patient's individual treatment deeds.

Every potential patient begins the treatment experience with a comprehensive evaluation to help diagnose medical, social, emotional and behavioral issues that enable skilled clinicians to guide patients to the appropriate treatment program and level of care. Length of stay is determined on an individual basis.

Treatment Center Information

Treatment Services:

Inpatient Non-Hospital Detoxification - Adult

Detoxification can be the first step on the road to recovery. Our inpatient non-hospital detox programs allow you the time needed to devote to reducing withdrawal symptoms. Detoxification staff is made up of seasoned professionals including but not limited to Physicians, RN's, LPN's, and PA's who are all trained in the complexity of the withdrawal of substances.

Inpatient Residential Chemical Dependency (CD) Rehabilitation - Adult

Rehabilitation consists of treating the disease of chemical dependency, which requires physical, mental and spiritual rehabilitation. Through daily group and individual counseling, patients develop understanding and self-awareness making recovery possible. Average length of stay for rehabilitation is based on the individual need of each client. Long-term specialty programs are also available.

Residential Dual Diagnosis Program (MISA) - Specialty

Dual Diagnosis patients suffer from two destructive illnesses: psychiatric disorder and addictive disease. We have developed a program to treat both illnesses simultaneously. The goals for the patient are to:

  • Accept and recognize the illness.
  • Develop and improve coping skills.
  • Eliminate dysfunctional behavior.
  • Return and live safely in a community setting.
  • Psychiatrists are on staff.

In addition to attending regular AA/NA meetings, clients participate in individual, group and family therapy and are oriented to twelve-step recovery. Psychotropic medication is administered based on the individual psychiatric evaluation with psychiatric illness and chemical dependency treatment.

Mental Health Residential Treatment Program - Adolescent

Each acute Mental Health Residential Treatment Facility for Adolescents (RTF) provides intensive inpatient services to adolescents with serious emotional disturbances, mental illness and acute behavioral disorders. The purpose of the Mental Health Program for Adolescents is to achieve stabilization of the primary diagnosis while maintaining a level of functioning, which enables the adolescent to return to live safely in a community setting.

Individualized treatment plans are jointly developed by the internal treatment team in concert with the community-based agencies.

Partial Hospitalization - Adult

Partial hospitalization programs are designed for clients who do not require 24-hour care but do need more intensive treatment that is available in outpatient services. Patients participate from 8:00am to 4:30pm, Monday through Saturday, and 9:00am to 1:00pm on Sunday. White Deer Run of Williamsport and Cove Forge BHS of Williamsburg offer a transitional living facility, which provides a structured, supervised environment for patients requiring further support.

Relapse Prevention Group - Specialty

White Deer Run/Cove Forge BHS recognizes the high rate of relapse within the chemically dependent population. We believe that treatment must include a treatment plan that addresses the issue of relapse prevention. As a part of this process, we require each client to participate in relapse prevention planning.

The first step in relapse prevention emphasizes the identification of personal stressors or triggers that could lead to relapse. Next, the client participates in exercises to help them plan to eliminate or minimize identified triggers. Typically, this discharge planning hinges on an evaluation of the client's living environment and may lead to relocation or some other drastic change in their post-discharge living environment.

Women's Group - Specialty

The women's group provides the opportunities for safe, open discussion regarding addictive behaviors, emotional dependencies and traumas. Through this supportive network, women learn to establish positive attitudes and relationships, furthering their recovery.

Family Program - Specialty

Since chemical dependency can affect the entire family, White Deer Run has developed a two-day program that brings families together in a workshop format. Through education and self-awareness training, family members learn how to better communicate, as well as how to set positive goals. Our program staff of professional, recovering family members works with patients by sharing their experience, knowledge and hope.
