Specialization

  • Individualized Treatment

    Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.
  • Aftercare Support

    Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.

Willingway saved my son’s life. As the parent of a child with a 15 year heavy drug addiction (opioids/heroin) , I almost gave up hope that my son could live any other way. After admission to over 15 different treatment centers over 20 years, I was convinced 30 days of treatment was simply not enough. My son needed to learn how to live a different life. The extended stay treatment program has somehow turned him around, completely. He has his life back and is sober now for 15 months, fully employed and enjoying his life. Fact is, he finally surrendered and followed the program. I paid privately as insurance would only pay for outpatient after a 30 day program... but it was so worth getting my son back. He did the work, and I know they were strict , but it worked. His counselor, his group, were so helpful and attending meetings every day and going through the 12 steps.. all figured into his successful recovery. He even told me that there was something about Willingway that is different than the other rehab centers. He believes it is their diligence and support and they sincerely wanted him to be sober and looked out for him in very supportive ways always advocating for the patient’s well being... something he couldn’t do for himself. I would highly recommend Willingway. It was recommended to me by a lovely and dear addictions counselor/friend who does intervention work and sends her clients to Willingway. Thank you Willingway and staff for giving my son his back the life that dugs took from him for so long.

Willingway was my 14th treatment, I had been an IV Heroin addict for over ten years along with cocaine Xanax and alcohol. I recently celebrated a year clean and sober and am indebted to willingway for all they have done. When I went in I was resistant and did not plan to stay clean but between the structure, support and therapy from staff I changed my life. 90% of staff is in recovery which made a big difference for me personally. They understood firsthand. I also thought the food was good, they had a pool n hot tub and a gym that I didn’t use too much but the private rooms and bathroom situation was a pretty nice touch. Nice grounds also. I would recommend them hands down, I was referring by interventionist in Philadelphia, so they are pretty well known for their treatment apparently.

Do due diligence before selecting Willingway. Filthy, run down and poorly operated. This was an outstanding facility before it was sold in 2016. It was one of the best, now it’s a puppy mill. Staff will not provide credentials, teens now mixed with adults, the worst food possible prepared by the staff of the half way house. Medical Director engaged to one of the counselors. Run.

The detox made me sick, and they don’t allow u to use the phone. Meanwhile, the counselor lie about things to your family and use your “sickness” as a crutch to manipulate your family. This place is terrible. They made me purchase their tee shirts and wouldn’t allow me to wear jewelry bc I have a jewelry business. They tell things to people u don’t put on the legal medical form release to cause drama. The woman working at the residential house has illegally violated patients’ rights by sharing information to others. She believes in the girls hashing things out and actually craves the drama and more so promotes this unhealthy environment claiming she thinks it great for the girls to hash things out. She told me I packed too much and actually scratched my glasses. They lie about your recovery and claim to the family members that u r sicker than anyone knows, meanwhile, they read your letters to your children and won’t send out mail if they don’t approve. It’s a sick and twisted place.
