PATH's mission is to guide people on a positive path to change, through quality counseling, treatment & education. By definition, the PA Treatment & Healing Licensed Outpatient Drug and Alcohol Treatment Program believes that addiction is the use of a substance or activity for the purpose of lessening pain or augmenting pleasure. The addicted person has lost control over the rate, frequency or duration of their use. As a result, the addicted person's life has progressively become unmanageable. In the case of adolescents, any habitual use of an illegal substance may warrant treatment. The Agency's Licensed Outpatient Drug and Alcohol Program has been licensed by the Division of Drug and Alcohol Program Licensure of the Pennsylvania Department of Health since 1991. The program is approved by the Department of Public Welfare as a Medical Assistance provider. Dr. Vikas Passi, M.D., Family Practice Center, P.C., serves as the program's Medical Director. The Agency receives referrals to its outpatient drug and alcohol program from the following sources: self-referrals, Single County Authorities (SCAs), court referrals, inpatient drug treatment facilities, PA Treatment & Healing's Intensive Day Treatment, After School Evening Day Treatment and Alternative Education Programs, and other social service agencies. Treatment can be purchased independently or in conjunction with our other services. PA Treatment & Healing's Licensed Outpatient Drug and Alcohol Program provides the following outpatient drug and alcohol treatment services: individual and group therapy, random drug testing, individual drug and alcohol assessments, referral to higher levels of care, family therapy, informational sessions for concerned family members or significant others, family or significant other intervention services and community education.
