Drug and Alcohol Treatment
Opioid and illegal substance use are at epidemic levels, and western Pennsylvania has seen unprecedented numbers of overdoses in recent years. Alcoholism is a more hidden addiction that quietly takes a toll on families and workplace stability. The call to action for both is strong and focused with Renewal, Inc. on the front lines. Based in Pittsburgh, Renewal, Inc. provides drug and alcohol rehabilitation and treatment services that go beyond core addiction behaviors.
We look at rehabilitation as a process – a road of hope to recovery – and are there every step of
Although every user is different, their paths share similarities. Substance use, mental health issues, and criminal behaviors are common in the histories of those in our care. Renewal, Inc.’s approach to treatment involves examining not only the destructive behaviors, but also the
reasons behind them. Impulse behavior control is a starting point, eliminating environmental triggers. Leading someone to a healthy path can only be successful if the person understands why they keep choosing the unhealthy route. This is one of Renewal, Inc.’s key roles: helping the individual along their road to recovery.
Comprehensive Drug and Alcohol Treatment
Renewal, Inc. delivers comprehensive drug and alcohol treatment for individuals of all walks of life: those in the criminal justice system and those with addiction but no criminal past. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is our primary treatment modality, which encourages awareness of thinking distortions and errors that perpetuate substance use. To help change future actions moving forward, we also offer behavioral health tools based on three underlying principles:
1. You are responsible for your behavior.
2. You can change your thinking and beliefs.
3. Your behaviors will change by changing your thinking and beliefs.
Personalized Withdrawal Management (Detoxification), and Inpatient and
Outpatient Treatment Services
Renewal, Inc. offers a wide range of personalized withdrawal management (detoxification), and inpatient and outpatient treatment services to support individuals on their path to reentering society after incarceration, going back to school or work, or returning home with the skills to be healthy family members. These services are provided by clinicians who are knowledgeable and experienced in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and other treatment modalities. All of the dedicated professionals at Renewal, Inc. work closely with individuals, developing treatment protocols based on in-depth evaluations and assessments of each situation.
A significant part of treatment includes interactive workbooks and daily journals, which serve as reference points for people as they transition back to mainstream society. Our clinicians also deliver individual, group, and educational information focused on substance use and factors that lead to drug and alcohol dependency.
Renewal, Inc. offers outpatient treatment services for individuals in the criminal justice system and those with no criminal history. These services focus on assessment, group therapy, and individual counseling. Overall, we believe in a well-rounded and ongoing approach to treatment. All individuals in treatment with Renewal Treatment Inc.® are further encouraged to pursue external, socially based support systems such as 12-step meetings and mentoring or spiritual programs.
Withdrawal Management (Detoxification)
Our affiliate Renewal Treatment, Inc.® is licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs for 16 in-patient, non-hospital withdrawal management beds. These services take place at our 704 Second Avenue, Pittsburgh facility for all individuals requiring treatment. One of the goals is to divert those needing withdrawal management (detoxification) services from jail, or to divert probation violators prior to going to jail and place them in community-based withdrawal management services. Subsequent placement in the appropriate level of Alcohol and Other Drugs (AOD) treatment will occur when they are medically cleared to participate.
