Mirmont Treatment Center is located in a suburb of Lima, just outside Philadelphia, PA. Unlike other treatment protocols that follow “a day at a time” approach, Mirmont focuses on helping alcohol and drug abusers regain sobriety and health by focusing on “a moment at a time.”
Starting its journey in 1985 as an inpatient rehab facility, Mirmont Treatment Center today boasts of having myriad treatment specialties and programs. The center operates under Main Line Health (a group of non-profit health facilities and hospitals in Pennsylvania).
Set on a 33-acre campus complete with beautiful trees and rolling green hills, Mirmont Treatment Center offers its residents a meditation as well as a vegetable garden, and an athletic field. The 111-bed facility has a fully-equipped gym, comfortable recreational lounge, and an on-site bookstore. Participants also receive access (complimentary) to nutritional counseling and a fitness program.
The residents are housed, three to a warmly furnished bedroom that has plenty of natural light, great views, and attached bathrooms.
While getting admitted to the residential programs, residents can pack alcohol-free toiletries, reading materials on spirituality, self-help, and 12-step. The center provides laundry services and detergent. Electronic items like cell phones are not allowed. Residents have to get extra cash for vending machines and payphones.
Smoking is allowed but strongly discouraged. Residents can have a smoke before they retire for the night.
Residents are served nutritious meals in a communal dining hall. They can also enjoy snacks, coffee, juices, and other beverages throughout the day. Residential clients are served meals first, followed by detox clients.
Mirmont offers on-site detox to residents, after which they transition to either an inpatient or outpatient track.
In the inpatient track, residents are offered comprehensive treatment that addresses every aspect related to addiction. They engage in daily therapy and educational groups, with an emphasis on mindfulness. Each treatment phase incorporates mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) therapy, meditation, and yoga.
Mirmont also offers a separate dual-diagnosis and inpatient program. This track focuses on patients having co-occurring issues like depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder.
A treatment program at Mirmont Treatment Center starts with a psychiatric assessment. The psychiatrist also meets them and manages their medication. The center also offers a treatment program for trauma recovery, pain management, and relapse prevention.
A typical day at Mirmont starts at 7:00 am. Residents can take breakfast at 7:30 am, which is followed by yoga, community activity, or pain management treatment (which can include CBT, acupressure, reflexology, Emotional Freedom Techniques, and Reiki). Lunch follows these sessions.
Specific group therapies focusing on accurate dual diagnoses, trauma recovery, gender-specific topics are discussed after lunch. This is followed by dinner, and then lights are out at 11:00 pm.
While treatment modality at Mirmont is a 12-step recovery, they do allow occasional visits of NA/AA facilitators. However, Mirmont does not follow the AA/NA protocol for achieving long-term sobriety. Instead, meditation and mindfulness are the preferred tools.
Residents can stay at the center for a maximum of 28 days. After that, the counselors work with them to develop a discharge plan suited for their needs. It can either be an outpatient program or an inpatient program at any of the several Main Line’s affiliated clinics.
The treatment team at Mirmont Treatment Center comprises doctors, nurse practitioners, psychiatrists, and a 24/7 nursing staff. The center also has about 14 on-site addiction counselors. The non-medical staff also includes kitchen and housekeeping as well.
Besides the pain management treatment (which can include acupressure, CBT, reflexology, Emotional Freedom Techniques, and Reiki), the center does offer a Family and Friends Program.
The program involves film screenings, educational lectures, training for better management of stress, and Q&A sessions for the residents’ loved ones. Mirmont Treatment Center also facilitates Valor with Integrity Program for Emergency Responders (VIPER), a treatment program specifically for the emergency-response field, such as EMTs and police officers.
The center also provides Pet Assisted Therapy, with the help of PAWS for People.
Approximately $19,300 (28 days).
