About Us


Treatment Trends, Inc., (TTI) is a private, non-profit, 501(c) 3. We dedicate our services to alleviate the community problems of addiction, crime, and violence. Services are delivered through the four community-based divisions of Treatment Trends, Inc. They include a residential therapeutic community, Keenan House; an intensive outpatient and out-patient program, Confront, a transitional living recovery house, Richard S. Csandl Recovery House; a halfway home, Halfway Home of the Lehigh Valley; and an assessment/case management unit, Treatment Continuum Alternative Project (TCAP).

Treatment Trends Incorporated, is the governing organization whose corporate and administrative offices are housed within the residential facility Keenan House.

All services are provided by a very dedicated and professional staff that meets qualifications set forth by the licensing division of the Pa. Department of Health, Bureau of Drug and Alcohol Programs.  Our inpatient and outpatient programs are both licensed continuously since 1972.  The inpatient program is newly accredited by the American Correctional Association.

Our treatment model, a continuum of care, offers the highest possibilities for positive outcomes, while holding clients accountable through various levels of care.  All current research coming out of the National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA) and our follow-up data shows that comprehensive drug treatment is cost effective and enhances community safety. The research has repeatedly shown that the longer the length of time in treatment, the higher the likelihood of positive outcomes.  The longer the time a client is drug free and working on prosocial versus criminal values, the greater the changes that an individual can make.

Many of the individuals served by our facilities have repeatedly paid the social consequence of prison for their illegal drug use and crime. Treatment affords our clients the possibility of reclaiming their lives and recovery, our reintegration services and drug free housing turn the present into the hopes for a future.

Treatment Trends, Inc., admits clients to treatment without regard to race, color, religious creed, gender, sexual orientation, disability, or national origin.


(1) to treat substance abuse and other forms of self-destructive behavior and to return persons who have recovered from such self-destructive behavior to the mainstream of the community as productive individuals, all based on the philosophy of responsible concern for one's fellow man; and (2) to educate the public as to the cause and prevention of substance abuse and other forms of self-destructive behaviors. Such purposes shall be furthered by means which shall include, but shall not be limited to, (3) the provision of facilities for (4) a continuum of care and (5) the pursuit of research and the publication of the findings, (6) to reduce youth and adult crimes and violence by developing and operating community service programs which increase respect for law and order with justice, by treating the causes of violence, and by seeking to prevent violence both against other persons, property and the community at large Such purposes shall be furthered by means which shall include, but not be limited to, the planning, development and operation of youth service bureaus, halfway houses, therapeutic communities, community services centers, intensive probation programs, training in gang controls, and projects to improve the mental and physical health of youth and adults on a continuum of care, and to increase opportunities for education, job training and permanent employment; all of which programs and projects may be funded by government or foundation grants and by contracts and operated in connection with law enforcement agencies.


We are here because there is no refuge, finally, from ourselves.  Until people confront themselves in the eyes and hearts of others, they are running. Until they suffer others to share their secrets, they have no safety from them. Afraid to be known, they can know neither themselves nor any other; they will be alone.  Where else but in our common ground can we find such a mirror?

Treatment Trends Foundation Inc.

The Treatment Trends Foundation and Treatment Trends, Inc., combined have the goals of carrying out the mission of Treatment Trends, Inc.  This includes the continuum of care for the addiction field, crime reduction, sexual abuse treatment and prevention, and violence prevention and treatment.  The corporation and foundation provide direction and assure funding for the varied programs available within the Treatment Trends continuum.

Treatment Trends Training Institute

The Treatment Trends Training Institute is dedicated to providing in-depth, quality training to both our staff and professionals working in the community.  This goal is achieved in three distinct offerings: in-house training of staff, external vendor/provider training and the Treatment Trends Training Institute training tracks.

Of these three, the training tracks are the most widespread.  A track can be defined as a series of individual, one or two day courses on topics of pertinent interest to the treatment community.  Offered weekly or bi-weekly over a period of three months, usually March-June and September-November, the courses often center upon a particular topic or theme, such as the tools of the trade or client addictions.

There are two training tracks per year: Fall and Spring.  It should also be noted that courses offered under the Treatment Trends Training Institute Training Tracks are submitted for PCB approved clock hours for addiction certification.  Many are also submitted for social work clock hour credits.

Quality Assurance Program

The goal of the Quality Assurance Program is to assure the quality of client care consistent with the Treatment Trends, Inc. mission and the policies and procedures of Keenan House. The three committees: Quality Assurance, Infection Control/Safety Environmental Management and Human Resource Management continue to meet on a regular basis.

These committees are responsible for agency-wide quality assurance efforts that: raise the standard of care and safety; maintain standards of chemical documentation; offer training for staff to address identified needs.

The Quality Assurance Program maintains the process of identifying and prioritizing problem issues, implementing a corrective action plan for each with time frames and the individual(s) responsible, and monitors the results for outcome.  Corrective Action Teams are utilized to monitor specific issues thus allowing Keenan House staff to participate in this process.
