KeyStone Center provides Medically Monitored Detoxification and Rehabilitation for individuals struggling with addiction to drugs and/or alcohol.
With an average length of stay of 3-8 days depending on the type of detoxification needed, this program is designed for individuals with chronic substance abuse and dual diagnosis issues who are in need of treatment.
Patients who may have been unsuccessful in past treatment and recovery attempts, with numerous relapses, and whose addiction has significantly impacted their ability to live productive lives may be appropriate for this program. Stabilizing a patient’s mental and physical health, educating them on their condition, and beginning the healing process are the primary goals of the program.
The program focuses on problem identification and building a foundation for learning and changing based on the Stages of Change Model and facilitated through Motivational Interviewing, DBT, Cognitive Behavior Therapy as well as many other evidence-based techniques.
Clients begin to uncover primary issues and perpetuating factors to each patient’s current situation. Detrimental lifestyle patterns are identified and the process of change is begun. Treatment Care Plans will guide a systematic approach to behavioral practice of new ways of dealing with difficult situations, past and present stressors, and adjustment to sobriety.
The program philosophy is to take the patient through exploration of all aspects of his/her life. Each patient has a primary case manager and interacts with many other staff members on the treatment team.
Each day, patients participate in a core therapy group along with several psychoeducational seminars, lectures and experiential task groups. The staff plays a large role in exploring the roots of each patient’s condition along with identifying potential barriers to growth.
Supportive clinical staff members assist the patient in facing and overcoming daily challenges while guiding them toward a more constructive lifestyle.
Near the end of each patient’s treatment, KeyStone’s Aftercare Specialists begin to develop a plan for post-treatment life. Patients will explore alternate, supportive living arrangements; ongoing treatment options; services available; and a host of other elements to make this recovery attempt more successful.

KeyStone Center offers Subutex as part of the detox protocol for opiate dependent patients. Detox with Subutex requires a face-to-face evaluation with a specially licensed physician.
Subutex provides relief from mild to moderate opiate withdrawal. A tapering dose is provided over a 5 to 8 day period.
Benefits of Subutex:
Subutex administration can ease the symptoms of withdrawal associated with detoxification from heroin, oxycontin and other opiates.
Subutex has been endorsed as being safe and effective by the Food and Drug Administration.
Subutex is easy to administer and binds to the same receptors as other opioid drugs. It mimics the effects of other opioids by alleviating cravings and withdrawal symptoms. This allows you to address the psychosocial reasons behind your opioid use.
Subutex allows patients to engage in rehabilitation services without as much discomfort
Once Subutex is administered it takes effect within 30 minutes.
Patients who may not be appropriate for Subutex include:
Individuals with recent, prolonged exposure to Methadone.
Females who are pregnant.
Patients with active liver or pancreatic disease.
Patients who are cross addicted to sedatives including benzodiazepines, barbiturates or alcohol while not excluded require a dual taper and special precautions due to potentially life-threatening additive sedative effects.
Please note: At this time we do not provide Subutex maintenance.
