New Insights: Treatments, Programs and Staff
Upon admission, every client is evaluated by a certified counselor who gathers information and determines the nature and the extent of the problem. Subsequently, a recommendation for the most appropriate level of treatment is made.
Depending on the location, the following programs are available at New Insights:
- Traditional Outpatient (OP)
- Intensive Outpatient (IOP)
- Partial Hospitalization (PHP) – Lemoyne only
- Family Program – Lemoyne only
- Relapse Prevention
- Woman’s Recovery Group

Detox services or dual-diagnosis services are not available, but referrals can be provided. Clients participate in a 12-step based program which includes weekly AA/NA recovery meetings, off-site. Individual, group and family counselings are also available.
The IOP is offered in both Lemoyne and York, with the duration of six weeks. Upon completing IOP, many clients make a transition to regular outpatient program and participate in it from three to six months. During this period clients attend group therapies.
Women’s recovery group is primarily a 12-step based program, but women also have the opportunity to learn about self-care practices, clear communication strategies and how to set priorities and boundaries in life. This program implements and maintains involvement in AA and NA.
OP services and PHP for adult males are conducted in a home-like setting. This program is also known as “Work While in Rehab” program. Being intended for those who want to work while on rehab, this program lasts between 30 to 45 days, four hours a day, five evenings a week. It is also meant for clients who make a step forward and slowly return to their home and work after inpatient program.
Relapse Prevention is suited for those who are freshly sober or those who struggle with chronic relapse. The entire program is based on 12-step model and helps clients recognize and handle substance abuse or relapse triggers.
The founder and Executive Director of New Insights, John Maxton, is a professional in the drug abuse treatment area. With over 25 years of experience, he was first to bring IOP treatment to Pennsylvania. Under his supervision, New Insights staff made of experts in the field of psychology and substance abuse treatment, work as a team and provide best quality care.
