Drug & Alcohol Treatment Program

The IFS Outpatient Drug and Alcohol Treatment Program is a clinical non-residential treatment service that permits our clients to live at home while learning to recover their lives from the harmful and negative consequences that occur when alcohol and drug abuse take a seemingly unrelenting grip on their lives.

Our program includes both Outpatient and (IOP) Intensive Outpatient Program Services to address the varying degrees of intervention a client may require while maintaining home, school, and work responsibilities. The IFS Drug and Alcohol Treatment Program is fully licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs.
