News & Updates In The Community
Excerpt from a time magazine article with input from our founder James Bryan back in 1974 when Alcoholism and addiction was left mostly untreated. "The common element in most of the cures is group support. Explains Jim Bryan, director of therapy at Chit Chat Farms, a highly successful alcoholic treatment center west of Reading, P.: 'We tell the patients it can be done and you don’t have to do it alone. The patients help each other get well.' Half the staff-including Bryan himself-are recovered alcoholics, providing even more credence to the support they give to patients during Chit Chat’s 28-day treatment program.

Drug or alcohol Detoxification
and recovery can be a challenging process and almost all treatment programs will ensure their program is designed is to ensure safety and prepare their patients for further care. Substance abuse can cause profound changes in brain and body chemistry and one of the first priorities in recovery from addiction is to detoxify from toxic chemicals and their byproducts. While complete detoxification can take months or even years, The Beachcomber addiction treatment center provides medical supervision during the first few hours or days of abstinence, assisting in withdrawal, which can be physically overwhelming and even dangerous.
The Beachcomber provides in-patient substance abuse and rehabilitative service where hope and fulfillment begin to replace fear, anger and loneliness to all eligible applicants seeking treatment. At The Beachcomber, the Holistic Approach applies to our total environment in addition to traditional treatments to addiction we also offer Rapid Resolution Therapy
, Emotional Freedom Techniques Therapy (EFT), Yoga, Acupuncture and Light-Sound Neurotherapy to help our patients deal with the symptoms of withdrawal. The impact of alcoholism and addiction on spirit, the spiritual, is often difficult to understand and confront. “Spiritual bankruptcy” enmeshes to chemical dependency and goes often neglected in early stages of recovery. The Beachcomber Addiction Treatement Center treats patient Spirituality as a clear component of their recovery.
