KidsPeace now offers dual-diagnosis addictions and mental health treatment at its Allentown/Sacred Heart Campus and its location in Mount Pocono, PA (Monroe County). The program is designed to address the specific needs of individuals with both a substance addiction and a mental health disorder – a description that is estimated to apply to nearly half of all adults struggling with addiction.
The KidsPeace dual-diagnosis treatment program provides intensive outpatient, individual, family and group therapy under the evidence-based Matrix Model. The Matrix Model is a highly structured, time-limited treatment that includes aspects of multiple therapeutic styles and psychological orientations – including cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, behaviorism, family therapy, group therapy and the 12-step approach. This “personalized” approach has been shown to be effective in helping clients overcome the multiple challenges of their dual diagnosis, and use of the Matrix Model is supported by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA).
Adults are treated through the associated programs of Orchard Behavioral Health .
