Pathway to Recovery Residential Treatment Program
Outside In has developed a unique and innovative approach to substance abuse in the Pathway To Recovery Substance Abuse Project. The Pathway Project includes residential and outpatient services, both of which are co-occurring disorder competent services. Level of care determinations are based on the ASAM Adolescent Patient Placement Criteria and, for adults, the Pennsylvania Client Placement Criteria.Details regarding Adolescent Level III.1 and III.5 Admission Criteria are available in ASAM Patient Placement Criteria, Second Edition-Revised. This program description details our residential substance abuse services.
Residential Substance Abuse Services
Pathway To Recovery Residential Substance Abuse Service is a 48-bed program licensed to provide “residential drug-free” (also referred to as inpatient non-hospital) treatment for adolescent males. Our residents are referred to as students, an age-appropriate term that normalizes their situation and emphasizes learning. Pathway Residential (for short) combines the evidence-based practices of Motivational Interviewing (MI) developed by Miller and Rollnick, and the Transtheoretical Model of behavior change (TTM) developed by DiClemente and Prochaska. MI has been described as “a way of being with people” that enhances motivation for change. TTM is a “stages of change” approach that conceptualizes change in five sequential stages and ten correlating processes. We have been using this approach since 2002 and it is well-received by our students.
