ABOUT WHITE DEER RUN OF YORK

White Deer Run of York, one of several White Deer Run centers in Pennsylvania, is a residential drug and alcohol rehab facility for adult men and women. Operated by CRC Health, one of the nation’s largest providers of rehab and behavioral health services, this facility offers on-site supervised medical detox, residential programming, and treatment designed to address co-occurring mental health disorders through two facilities.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Upon admission, adults receive a comprehensive psychological and medical evaluation and have access to 24-hour medical supervision during their stay. Residential treatment typically lasts 18 days, yet length of stay ultimately depends on a client’s specific needs. Residents begin at the Davies Drive location for detox and then transfer to the Mt. Zion location for the rest of treatment.

Each week, clients attend one-on-one meetings, group sessions, and family therapy as they work through their underlying problems under the lenses of evidence-based practices such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) and motivational enhancement therapy (MET). Other program components include 12-step work, medication management, recreational therapy, educational classes, relapse prevention sessions, and morning lectures.

Aftercare planning, another core part of the program, provides clients with personally tailored continuing care plans prior to graduation. For some, this may entail transitioning into either outpatient or intensive outpatient (IOP) treatment, available at other White Deer Run facilities throughout the state.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

The treatment staff at White Deer Run of York includes physicians certified in addiction medicine, counselors, therapists, and other experienced behavioral healthcare professionals.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

White Deer Run of York’s facility received mostly positive reviews from a group of 12 alumni polled by Best-rehabs.com to date. From the nine alumni polled on this metric, treatment effectiveness averaged 4.1 out of five stars.

On the positive end, former clients referred to the staff as “genuinely caring,” “supportive,” and “knowledgeable,” while some even credited the facility with saving their lives. “If an individual is REALLY serious and TOTALLY committed to getting better and receiving treatment, this facility is also committed and serious about the treatment and care for its patients that do. I did not want to leave,” one anonymous alum commented.

Another anonymous alum highlighted the facility’s capacity for accommodating special needs such as lactose intolerance, yet another disagreed: “They did not individually tend to the needs.”

Despite these positive trends, K.E. claimed the facility has a staff “that don’t have a clue,” reflecting the statement made by another anonymous former client: “counselors didn’t seem to know what they were doing most of the time… It is not set up for anyone with mental issues. It is a place to recover physically for 30 or so days, but the treatment is left up to the clients in terms of finding value.”

In a more balanced report, T.L.S. told Best-rehabs.com: “Program worked for me, but didn’t supply amount of counseling promised.”

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

As of this writing, a group of seven loved ones shared mostly negative feedback with Best-rehabs.com. K.L.D., whose parent attended the facility, described the facility as a “neat, up to date, clean place with extremely caring and supportive staff.”

Yet other reviewers considered treatment incomplete, as one wrote: “Too easily release patient without making much of an effort to help her understand her need to continue in the program.” Likewise, another anonymous loved one who visited her niece in treatment shared their disappointment with Best-rehabs.com: “there was never much staff around. Additionally, there was an incredible amount of unsupervised interaction between males & females…I’ve been in recovery for 15 plus years, and I know that this facility did not have the resources to be effective.”

Additionally, in a reflective review, parent Bonnie who claimed her son overdosed shortly after being released wrote: “He didn’t have one on one attention at all. I was told his counselor was out a lot during his stay. It’s a revolving door–I honestly think they want to see the patients come back.”

FINANCING

  • ****BEWARE**** My son went here for opioid addiction and he overdosed 1 WEEK after leaving this facility, On his last day the director told us if my son can't make it no one can because he had done so well in their program. Well, he didn't survive... They didn't prepare for where he would go after he left, which is part of his treatment, He didn't have one on one attention at all. I was told his counselor was out a lot during his stay. It's a revolving door--I honestly think they want to see the patients come back.
    place is a stinky hole with staff that don't have a clue...place is dirty, the list goes on! A complete disgrace, owners should be ashamed of themselves

    They were a success in their treatment. Visitors are very limited. Whatever they did worked and has continued to work for 7 months after rehab.

  • My son went here and it was unsuccessful. ... It's a revolving door for addicts. They get very little individual attention. ... A total waste of time and money. I would give them zero stars if it was an option. Skip this... it's too sad.

  • It was clean, safe and the food was acceptable. However, counselors didn't seem to know what they were doing most of the time. I felt like I was being babysat for the most part. It is not set up for anyone with mental issues. It is a place to recover physically for 30 or so days, but the treatment is left up to the clients in terms of finding value

  • Visiting my niece, there was never much staff around. Additionally, there was an incredible amount of unsupervised interaction between males & females. This is never good in early recovery, as it leads to unnecessary relationships. Thus energy that should be put into a recovery program is focused elsewhere. I've been in recovery for 15 plus years, and I know that this facility did not have the resources to be effective.

  • Genuinely caring and kind with knowledgeable staff...tons of insight and enlightenment given to absorb. Positive experience...If an individual is REALLY serious and TOTALLY committed to getting better and receiving treatment, this facility is also committed and serious about the treatment and care for its patients that do. I did not want to leave. No insurance and limited finances kept me from staying longer. They will try and help you with finances if possible. They made every effort to help me. But their resources were limited at the time I was there. They tried.
