Services

Our interdisciplinary approach addresses
every element of the patient’s well being.

This includes any medical, emotional, and
behavioral/cognitive issues.

Inpatient Intensive Care

As a licensed acute care hospital, VFMC is equipped to manage medical conditions of a more complex nature. Those battling addiction and concurrent physical or mental health conditions receive 24 hour medical care, in addition to treatment for substance abuse.

Our medically managed intensive inpatient program enables our patients to heal in a safe, comfortable, and warm environment. Detoxification services are administered in this hospital setting as well. With physicians who specialize in addiction health on call 24 hours a day, withdrawal is managed and symptoms are eased to facilitate our patients’ smooth transition to sobriety.

The Valley Forge addiction hospital unit is the ideal place to chart first steps to a lasting recovery and gain tools that enable living with purpose.

Medical Recovery Unit

The Valley Forge Medical Recovery Unit (MRU) is a sub-acute unit within the hospital, providing general medical care for various physical conditions that often accompany addiction.

Patients will often find it challenging to be admitted to skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) or sub-acute units because of their concurring battle with substance abuse disorder (SUD). Due to the high risk of relapse, particularly for patients undergoing IV therapy, SNFs and conventional sub-acute facilities are not properly equipped to treat patients and simultaneously monitor their addiction recovery progress.

VFMC is perfectly positioned to extend sub-acute medical care, while treating concurrent addiction and substance dependence. Our medical center treats is fully equipped to offer medical care and welcomes patients requiring dual services.

Conditions treated in the MRU
include the following:

IV Therapy

Treatment of disorders such as endocarditis, osteomyelitis, cellulitis, septicemia, and skin ulcers (requiring 2 to 6 weeks of continued nursing care)

Wound Care/Dressings

Surgical wounds, venous stasis ulcers, skin and soft tissue abscesses, Stage II and some Stage III pressure ulcers

Physical
Therapy

Patients requiring up to 2-3 hours/week of PT

Ongoing Medical/Nursing Management

Patients with complications related to hepatitis C, diabetes, and other debilitating conditions

Detox

When a person is dependent on addictive substances, initial abstinence is often met with withdrawal. The withdrawal process can be extremely uncomfortable and even dangerous when performed improperly and without expert supervision.

Because of these risks, detox should never be attempted alone. At Valley Forge, expert medical and clinical care administered with compassion and empathy is our calling card. Patients are guided through the detox process safely, with our team doing everything possible to ease symptoms and keep our patients as comfortable as possible.

Our patients’ well-being is our absolute primary focus. A skilled nursing team is on call around the clock and decision-making is led by physicians with rich experience and expertise in addiction health.

Detox is foundational to lasting sobriety. At our facility, those foundations are laid with the greatest care, paving the way to building a sustainable life of recovery

Residential Treatment

Valley Forge’s addiction treatment residential program strongly emphasizes the uniqueness of each person’s path to recovery. In our group and individual sessions, patients are guided to identify the underlying realities that have contributed to their addictions, discover the depth of their personal experiences, and develop the skills they need to create their own sustainable pathway to recovery.

12-step principles are integrated into treatment plans, as well as evidence-based therapy modalities such as Cognitive and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT and CBT). Focus is placed on building a supportive recovery community of peers traveling a similar journey, as well as healing relationships with loved ones.

Valley Forge Hospital and Medical Center is built on a philosophy that has proven itself successful across the country and has provided hope, growth, and healing to hundreds of individuals and their families.

Case Management

We understand the sacrifice and laser focus it takes to embark on recovery. Our case management team takes steps to ensure there are no distractions for our patients, so they can peacefully navigate their journey to healing.

This includes communication with employers, mediating legal entanglements, understanding insurance benefits, and everything in between.

Our campus at Valley Forge is scenic and expansive, and every effort is made to create the peace of mind needed to progress towards a leading a meaningful and productive life.

Aftercare

Returning to real life after completing treatment can be intimidating. Clients will be challenged by career and family responsibilities, while facing old temptations and potential relapse triggers. Armed with the skills and tools learned in treatment, along with the continued support of the Valley Forge family, our patients emerge equipped to succeed.

Our alumni program keeps everyone within arms reach of the supportive relationships built in our programs. Keeping communication, reunions, and events frequent allows us to offer support and maintain meaningful connections long after their discharge.

Our patients earn a permanent place in our hearts and remain cherished members of our community forever!
