How Addiction is Affecting Philadelphia

Like several other urban areas in the country, drug and alcohol addiction in Philadelphia is commonplace. From blue collar workers to high-end executives, Philadelphia is not exempt from the individual, familial, and communal effects of substance abuse.

According to national data compiled by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Philadelphia ranked the second highest rate of drug overdose deaths in 2016 among the United States’ 44 counties comprised of over one million residents. Mostly attributed to opioid abuse, 46 deaths per 100,000, or 719 residents, met their fatality in Philadelphia County in 2016. This statistic is staggering for our city.

Drug and Alcohol Treatment

Drug and Alcohol Treatment Center Philadelphia

Harmony Place drug treatment center Philadelphia prides itself as a safe and comfortable rehab facility which understands the needs for the residents of Philadelphia and surrounding areas.

Residential (inpatient) treatment, also commonly called drug and alcohol rehab, offers an integrative and proven treatment model to assist those suffering from the disease of addiction.

Those who have not experienced inpatient treatment before, may have many questions of how it works. Though it will vary slightly from each treatment center, most rehabs include a similar structure. Details of specific programs can be explained by our admission team. When you contact Harmony Place drug rehab center Philadelphia, for example, you will be speaking to a knowledgeable representative who can help you with your concerns.

Some people feel apprehensive about entering a rehab facility because of the detoxification period and what to expect. Here at Harmony Place Drug Treatment Center Philadelphia, we provide 24/7 care and a professional staff that will regulate and monitor your physical and emotional needs. Once obtaining a medical clearance from the MD on staff, you will be able to participate in all the residential programming of Harmony Place.  Most, if not all people entering drug and alcohol rehab will need to detox for a certain amount of days depending on a variety of factors: such as amount and length of use, type of substance, if there is poly-substance abuse (more than one), age, gender, weight, and so on. The average length of detox phase is 5-7 days.

If you’re working and/or have family obligations, a Harmony Place drug rehab Philadelphia representative will be able to help guide you through the process of how to handle your obligations while you are in residential treatment. Many companies and unions have policies to assist employees who need substance abuse treatment. Consulting the handbook or talking to HR or Union Representative will be able to let you know how long you can leave the job without losing employment. According to the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), there is permitted time allowed to take medical leave which can be used for treatment for addiction. People who have worked at their job for a period of 12 months are able to take up to 3 months off for health or family care each year.

We understand the hardworking people of Philadelphia. As far as living in Philly and affording to go to rehab, Harmony Place will take several insurance plans for your inpatient stay at residential rehab. Gives us a call to discuss your options.

Getting Treatment

Drug and Alcohol Treatment Away from Philadelphia

You love where you live, and it feels comfortable because it is familiar, however, it also can be the return of your destruction. Your favorite bar, hangout, friend’s house—can be what calls you back to using drugs and alcohol. Getting far away from the “triggers” and reminders of using is often highly recommended in obtaining sobriety.

For this reason, Harmony Place recommends rehabilitation outside of Philly, where you can take a break from obligations, not get reminded of negative circumstances, not be pulled into late night activities, and be able to regroup in a comfortable and beautiful drug and alcohol rehab treatment facility.

After Rehab

What Happens After Rehab?

Once a client has completed a 30- day residential treatment program which include the detox phase, they are highly encouraged to continue following the treatment plan set up with them and suggested by the clinical team at Harmony Place. The 30- day residential program lays the foundation and allows the body to heal from toxins, while continued care is crucial to maintain sobriety.

Once leaving residential treatment center in Philadelphia, people will enter phases such as Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and Outpatient Program (OP) –where each level has a carefully structured plan for creating optimal results for returning to everyday life.

People who leave rehab without a continued care plan can relapse because the transition back to their lives is too radical being newly clean and sober. By following a treatment plan that gradually shifts and adjusts in needed changes for a sober life—a person has a much higher success rate.

Think about it—someone who has been using almost daily for five years might need more than 30 days to get it all together. A specific aftercare plan will be needed to be in place to help succeed when returning home to Philadelphia.

A continued care treatment plan is started when a person enters Harmony Place, and a complete and ongoing assessment is made by the clinical and medical staff. As a person goes through detox and residential phases, they will be able to assist the onsite team and be able to determine appropriate length of stay, individual needs, and any logistical challenges that may arise.

Treatment plans are individual and should be followed closely, though they are open to change due to circumstances. The most common and widely used tool for helping stay sober is creating and maintaining a support group. Popular for obtaining long- term sobriety is 12 -Step groups, which are all over Philadelphia and surrounding areas. When creating a treatment plan with the clinical team and case managers while in rehab, it will be important to set up and find meetings in your area.

To find 12-Step meetings in Philadelphia, you can access them online or call. From N. 63rd or Frankford to Willits, there are several Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous 12 -Step meetings at all hours of the day.

There are other sober groups and people turn to their church or religious fellowship as well. Throughout the treatment process, your family will be more educated with what you are going through as an addict, and when you return from rehab treatment, they can be better supportive through the adjustment period.
