ABOUT GREENBRIAR TREATMENT CENTER PITTSBURGH

Greenbriar Treatment Center offers both inpatient and outpatient programs for those struggling with substance abuse, as well as gender-specific halfway houses, throughout the state of Pennsylvania. The facility in Pittsburgh offers intensive outpatient treatment, partial day, and evening services for adult men and women.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

After an initial assessment, clients are referred to either the intensive outpatient, partial day/evening, or residential treatment program, depending on the level of care that is required.

Treatment is similar at all facilities and consists mostly of individual and group therapy, family counseling, psycho-educational groups, and workshops for relapse prevention and recovery in the workplace.

12-step methodologies are used, and clients are required to attend Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) meetings (both on- and off-campus) and encouraged to build sober support in the local community and obtain temporary sponsors.

Graduates are given priority admission to Greenbriar Treatment Center’s halfway houses as an option for aftercare.

  • Group sessions and family involvement and training. Nothing was apparent. As I was not the patient and only a family member my involvement was secondary. Although the rehab was less successful than hoped for it was not the fault of the staff or center.
