Since 1969, Treatment Trends, Inc., a social services agency in Allentown, Pa., has offered a variety of recovery programs for individuals struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. Keenan House, one of the nonprofit organization’s facilities, provides adult men, including veterans and those involved in the criminal justice system, with non-hospital, residential treatment. Detoxification services are not available on-site.


Before entering treatment, clients are first evaluated to make sure they meet eligibility requirements; men who have a history of arson, sexual assault, violence, or unmanaged psychiatric conditions may not be admitted. Keenan House treats addiction using a disease-model approach and employs a variety of therapeutic modalities, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Gestalt therapy, and reality therapy. Clients spend time in individual counseling, group therapy sessions, psychoeducation workshops, and process groups that address topics including addiction awareness, grief and trauma, decision making, life skills, and parenting. The center provides all residents with medical and, if necessary, psychiatric monitoring twice a week. All program graduates leave the facility with a comprehensive aftercare plan.

Keenan House offers specialized treatment tracks for those involved in the criminal justice system and individuals struggling with co-occurring substance abuse and mental health issues.


The center employs physicians, registered nurses, social workers, and certified addiction counselors.

While treatment is highly structured, clients are allotted time for personal reflection and recreation.

A total of 15 Facebook users provided an average rating of 4.5 out of five stars.[2] Multiple alumni described their treatment as life-changing. “I learned so much more about who I am and what I want to do. I had the best counselor in the world, who I still keep in touch with…the Keenan House experience is what one makes it and what one gets out of it is totally up to them. You have to put in the footwork its not handed to you on a platter,” Anthony wrote in a representative review.


The one loved one polled by rated the program’s treatment effectiveness with five out of five stars, but noted that they did not feel included in their husband’s treatment. “I would have liked to be able to see and talk to my husband more, in 3 months i onlyseen him 1 time,” the reviewer wrote.

Elsewhere, the handful of reviews from friends and family members were mixed. K.H., a Google reviewer, also felt excluded from her loved one’s treatment. “Horrible place staff is unprofessional they lie don’t send your loved ones here you’ll hear from them twice a month and see them once if that visits constantly get cancelled they have to beg for call,” she wrote in a one-star review.

In contrast, the three Facebook reviewers who identified themselves as loved ones of clients provided five-star reviews and expressed their appreciation for the center’s programming. “This place has not only helped my husband find himself to recognize he had a problem but has also be there for the family and the Monday night group is awesome,” Nicole wrote in a representative review.


According to a brochure published by the facility, clients are referred and funded by their county’s drug and alcohol agency or the criminal justice system.
