We know the first day can be overwhelming and scary, yet we’re excited to get started on a journey full of promise.
You will be warmly welcomed by our caring staff who will help you get smoothly settled in.


Patients requiring detox will initially be met by a licensed therapist and medical professional. Our team of doctors will keep a close watch for 24 hours and address any concurrent medical issues. In response to your drug and/or alcohol withdrawal, our staff will make sure you are safe and comfortable.

If you don’t need detoxification, we will tour the facility together to help you get familiar with your new surroundings. We encourage you to ask any questions you may have so that you can integrate into treatment with clarity and support.

The intake evaluation is an interview that helps place you in a program best suited to your needs.
You’ll meet with a medical professional and an addiction counselor who will review your financial circumstances, medical history, current health, and substance use patterns.

We understand that struggling with substance abuse may feel shameful and it may be tempting to omit details or lie about your level of usage. Yet, a false or misleading picture of your habits can impede progress. It may even needlessly prolong treatment. Please help yourself by being completely open and honest from the start. Valley Forge staff is here for only one reason. We want to give you the best chance of success. Everything you share is to your benefit and held in strictest confidence.

Every person looking for help with addiction is unique.
Our trained specialists know what to look for and which questions to ask. Background, history of use, treatment history and helpful anecdotal information are all relevant.

Respect and empathy guide all our conversations with prospective patients and their families. From the moment of first contact, the staff at Valley Forge Medical Center build a relationship founded on trust.
