KidsPeace Community Programs provide services to children, biological families and foster families in the Pennsylvania communities where they live. In 2018, over 6,000 clients were served through community programs in Pennsylvania.
KidsPeace professionals provide services such as therapy, life and parenting skills training, problem solving, and self-esteem building to children and families. Counselors coordinate with schools, county human services departments and various mental health agencies to offer a holistic approach to therapy. Often KidsPeace will transport children to after-school community programs, summer programs, and assists families with transportation to therapeutic appointments.
NOW OPEN IN ALLENTOWN!!! “Dual-Diagnosis” addictions/mental health treatment programs (Sacred Heart Campus)
KidsPeace now offers dual-diagnosis addictions and mental health treatment at its Allentown/Sacred Heart Campus. 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)
The program will be launched at KidsPeace’s Mt. Pocono location in Monroe County, PA later this year.
Adults are treated through the associated programs of Orchard Behavioral Health (Click Here).
