White Deer Run


As part of a large network of treatment centers throughout Pennsylvania, the Lewisburg branch of the White Deer Run organization offers outpatient (OP) and intensive outpatient (IOP) services for adults recovering from alcohol or drug addiction.


At this Lewisburg facility, White Deer Run distinguishes between treatment methods and treatment models. All methods, such as client-centered supportive therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and rational emotive behavior therapy (REBT), are incorporated into treatment models. Some of the models include the 12-Step Recovery Model, Ego-Psychology Model, or the Disease Concept Model. For example, a client might receive reality therapy within the Ego-Psychology Model.

Regardless of the type of outpatient program, clients engage in individual, family, and group therapy, as well as take classes on relapse prevention, relationships and boundaries, and the 12-step recovery process. IOP clients meet three days per week from 9:30 a.m. to noon, while outpatient clients meet three days per week for two hours.


The treatment team at White Deer Run includes an executive director who is also a licensed professional counselor and a certified advanced alcohol drug counselor, and a regional director of outpatient programs who is a certified alcohol and drug counselor. Staff at the Lewisburg location also includes therapists and counselors.
