We provide medically assisted detoxification, residential addiction treatment, and comprehensive aftercare planning.

Treatment at New Perspectives at White Deer Run is customized to each patient because we understand that different individuals respond differently to therapeutic approaches, depending on their unique perspective, experience, and substance use history. Our clinically sophisticated therapies are adjusted as needed, within an environment of respect and dignity. We believe all patients deserve a warm, welcoming, and supportive atmosphere at a facility that delivers comprehensive care, tailored to facilitate their unique needs and recovery goals.

New Perspectives at White Deer Run bases its services around the understanding of addiction as a chronic, primary, progressive disease that is destructive, not only to the life of the individual with substance use disorder, but to their family, friends, and community. Our understanding of the various ways that substance misuse impacts all areas of a person’s life motivates us to deliver truly comprehensive care designed to treat each patient’s physical, spiritual, emotional, and mental needs.

Addiction recovery is a lifelong journey, and New Perspectives at White Deer Run supports this journey with an integrated, holistic treatment approach that utilizes philosophies of effective mental health and addiction recovery care. We believe that addiction treatment must honor the individual history of our patients, giving them a voice, and allowing them to participate in the treatment experience. We also encourage other allies to get involved in the patient’s recovery, such as primary care physicians, family members, close friends, spiritual advisers, and employers.


New Perspectives at White Deer Run is set on a peaceful, pastoral campus in historic Lebanon that provides a lovely atmosphere for healing. Our full continuum of care for adults seeking to overcome substance abuse and co-occurring mental and behavioral health issues goes from detox to aftercare, and our treatment plans address addictions to all substances, including:

  • Cannabis dependency
  • Cocaine dependency
  • Benzodiazepine dependency
  • Alcohol dependency
  • Opioid dependency

Our treatment for co-occurring mental health disorders includes the following conditions:

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Anxiety disorder
  • Depressive disorders

The cost of treatment at New Perspectives at White Deer Run depends upon many different factors that vary between patients, as addiction recovery is an extremely personal experience. Factors involved include, but are not limited to, the nature of the patient’s primary addiction, the severity of the problem, the presence of any co-occurring disorders, and the duration of treatment.

Treatment duration may last for only a few days, or as long as several months. Research has shown that the longer a patient remains in drug rehab treatment, the greater their chances are of achieving long-term sobriety. Determining what each patient’s ideal length of stay might be involves evaluating everyone on a case by case basis. Our goal is to give each individual we treat their best chance at recovery success.

The admissions advisors at New Perspectives at White Deer Run are always happy to work with prospective patients to give them an accurate idea of the cost of their individual addiction treatment.

We work closely with individuals without insurance, and/or who will be using Pennsylvania county funding to cover the cost of care. We want to provide everyone in need with quality treatment at a price they can afford.

New Perspectives at White Deer Run in Lebanon, Pennsylvania is a residential rehabilitation program designed to provide intensive addiction treatment to adult men and women seeking to overcome substance use disorder. We help our patients with addictions to all substances, including:

  • Amphetamines

  • Cocaine
  • Marijuana and synthetic cannabinoids
  • Prescription drugs
  • Alcohol

At New Perspectives at White Deer Run, we understand that substance use disorders often exist alongside additional mental health issues, and for that reason we offer a specialized track for patients simultaneously dealing with substance misuse and co-occurring mental health disorders.

Our residential rehabilitation program typically lasts for 20 days, and includes a range of interventions, such as:

  • Medication management- Our patients meet with our staff physician and LPNs (licensed practical nurses) who work together to provide medication management services. Each patient receives a medical and psychiatric evaluation, after which medications are administered by our medical staff as needed.
  • Individual therapy- Patients in our residential treatment program attend individual therapy sessions with certified or licensed counselors at least once every week. Individual counseling provides patients with the time, space, and guidance to work through internal struggles and process any issues that arise through the course of treatment.
  • Family therapy- At New Perspectives at White Deer Run, we understand that a patient’s loved ones can be an invaluable source of support to recovery. That is why we offer family counseling sessions when needed.
  • Group therapy- For some patients, group therapy is the most transformational aspect of their addiction recovery plan. Our group therapy sessions are provided to general patients five times a week, and for patients in the co-occurring disorders treatment track, the sessions meet eight times per week. Groups provided include:
    • Psychoeducation groups
    • Dual Recovery
    • Treatment plans
    • Step 1
    • Goals

New Perspectives at White Deer Run understands that successful addiction recovery is an ongoing journey, which is why our treatment center provides discharge planning services beginning from day one of treatment. We do this to provide each patient with their best possible chance for lifelong recovery success.


New Perspectives at White Deer Run understands the nature of addiction, and uses that understanding to inform our treatment practices. If an individual repeatedly misuses a substance, their body will adapt, becoming accustomed to the presence of that substance. Whenever they attempt to quit using, their brain and body react with a range of unpleasant withdrawal symptoms, while their system attempts to normalize itself and resume normal functioning.

The detox and withdrawal process is the first step in addiction recovery. Withdrawal symptoms can range from uncomfortable to very dangerous. Persons struggling with substance use disorders are advised not to attempt to detox without professional help. Experiencing withdrawal on their own increases an individual’s chance of relapse, as they know that using again will relieve their suffering. Withdrawing alone can also be dangerous, as some symptoms may necessitate prompt medical treatment.

New Perspectives at White Deer Run knows how challenging, uncomfortable, and even frightening it can be to withdraw from drugs or alcohol, which is why we offer a medically-monitored detoxification program. Our specialized detox program helps individuals start off on their recovery journey by assisting their withdrawal from substances such as:

  • Sedatives and hypnotics, including benzodiazepines
  • Alcohol
  • Opioids like prescription narcotics and illicit drugs like heroin

Patients at New Perspectives at White Deer Run meet daily with the facility’s medical team, who monitor the patients’ withdrawal symptoms and vital signs, providing relieving medications as needed. This close, daily monitoring allows for a safe detoxification process with a minimum of withdrawal symptoms. The detox program is available to men and women 18 and older, and usually lasts for five days.

Other treatment interventions begin at this time, with detoxing patients who are able to participate being encouraged to attend therapeutic recreation, psychoeducation groups, small group counseling, and 12-step meetings. New Perspectives at White Deer Run considers the 12-step model to be an important part of our comprehensive addiction treatment program, and we urge our clients to attend NA, AA, and other 12-step meetings both during their time in our residential treatment program, and after, as a part of their continuing aftercare recovery plan.

The caring staff at New Perspectives at White Deer Run understand that the thought of entering a detox program can be intimidating to some prospective patients, and that knowledge helps us improve the services we provide. Our extensive experience with guiding patients through detox allows us to provide new patients with the safest, most comfortable withdrawal possible.
