Steps to Recovery
1400 Veterans Highway, Levittown, Pennsylvania, 19056
We begin fighting the disease by attempting to remove the stigma surrounding addiction. We fight for our clients needs, we understand and relate to the misery of addiction. We believe that recovery is sustained through community and connection. Our approach and company culture is to engage our clients in ways that offer intimacy, authenticity and transparency. We believe that these elements will allow our clients to grow in ways that will sustain recovery. We take that philosophy into everything we do and have seen it become the major difference between us and other providers. We believe in saying what we do and doing what we say.

Our Admissions Department is One of a KindOur availability and commitment to clients and families prior to admission is unmatched and often the difference between someone continuing to use and getting help. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and will work with anyone who needs us. This means that even if you don’t have insurance or your loved one is not ready for treatment at that exact time, we will still be a resource and support to you. We are known to go above and beyond and engage the potential client and their family as if they were already in treatment.
Recover in a Comfortable, Intimate SettingWe believe in supporting people in a way that will represent the living situation they will eventually integrate back to. This means that we don’t have personal chefs, steam rooms, Jacuzzi baths, or movie theatres. Our living accommodations are modern, comfortable, and visually appealing. Our settings are designed to meet every need of our clients while creating an atmosphere of motivation and positive self-esteem. We implement routines and rules that mirror the types of patterns that sustain meaningful life skills and productive behaviors.
