We believe chemical dependency is a highly treatable issue. Our inpatient program offers a variety of interventions ranging from medical to 12-Step. We provide our clients with effective tools to build a solid foundation for long-lasting recovery.

Inpatient Residential Treatment

Bowling Green, located in Kennett Square, PA, provides residential treatment and rehab programs for men and women, aged 18 and older, who are struggling with substance use disorders and dual diagnosis concerns. Treatment and rehab in these programs feature cognitive behavioral therapy and person-centered therapeutic approaches. The center includes 46 inpatient rehabilitation beds and 60 dual diagnosis beds. The typical length of stay in each treatment program is 21 to 28 days, but can also be longer or shorter depending on a resident’s rehab needs.

Medical doctors, nurse practitioners, and other qualified members of the Bowling Green nursing staff may also meet with residents in our program in order to monitor their medication needs and the effectiveness of any medication prescribed.

Family Therapy Options

At Bowling Green, family therapy sessions are held only on an as-needed basis for those in our treatment programs.
