Treatment, resources and support for recovery
The disease of addiction is complex and chronic, but also treatable. Our mission is to support all pathways to recovery, remove barriers, and inspire hope. Through our own teams and partner organizations, Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health is committed to caring for community members experiencing substance abuse and related health issues.
Our behavioral health team offers proven interventions to effectively treat behavioral health disorders and improve the quality of life of our patients and their families. Our services range from counseling services at primary care practices to psychiatric medication management.
Individuals with a substance addiction who come to the Emergency Department of Lancaster General Hospital are connected with a behavioral intervention counselor. The counselors are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They are a resource available to discuss treatment options to help people dealing with addiction start on the path to recovery.
This program is designed to treat people who have substance use disorders through our primary care practices, just like they might receive care for issues like asthma or diabetes. Treatment often includes medication (such as suboxone and vivitrol) and behavioral health counseling for safe and effective recovery from opioid use disorder. For many people, this has proven to be an effective outpatient treatment option. Learn more here.
