Frequently Asked Questions

how do I get treatment

What if I don't have insurance?

If you or a family member are interested in treatment but do not have insurance, there are other options for funding. Each county in Pennsylvania has a Drug and Alcohol office (D&A). The prospective client should contact their home county D&A office and explain that they are in need of treatment, but do not have insurance. The staff at the D&A office will then instruct the client on necessary steps to receive treatment. Clients also have the option of paying for their treatment out of pocket. Arrangements must be made with Greenbriar's financial department prior to admission. County Drug & Alcohol Office Phone Numbers: Allegheny: (800) 553-7499 Beaver: (724) 847-6220 Butler: (724) 284-5114 Cambria: (814) 536-5388 Fayette: (724) 438-3576 Greene: (724) 852-5276 Lawrence: (724) 658-5580 Mercer: (724) 662-1550 Somerset: (814) 445-1530 Washington: (724) 223-1181 Westmoreland: (724) 832-5880

What type of treatment programs are available?

Greenbriar Treatment Center offers the full continuum of care, which includes: Detoxification, Inpatient Rehabilitation, Day Partial Outpatient, Intensive Outpatient (Day and Evening), and Halfway House. Our Inpatient and Halfway Houses are licensed for Dual Diagnosis treatment of both addiction and mental health concerns.

Will my family or friends be able to visit me in treatment?

Greenbriar Treatment Center offers a Family Education Program at the Inpatient level of care to gain a better understanding of addiction and have the opportunity to visit loved ones. The Family program takes place on Wednesday evenings from 6PM-7PM, followed by visiting hours from 7PM-8:30PM. In order to attend visiting hours, the family member must attend the family education hour and be pre-approved as a guest of the facility by the patient's therapist. Please do not arrive more than 15 minutes prior to the start of the Family Program. If you arrive later than 6:15, you will not be admitted to Family Programming. 2 guests per patient are permitted, and must be supportive of recovery. Each guest must be at least 11 years of age. Pay phones are also available for supportive loved ones to call in order to speak with their loved one in treatment on a daily basis. You must bring photo identification (ex: driver’s license, passport, school or work ID) in order to visit. Clothing and personal items may not be brought in on Family Program days. Items such as money, toiletries, cigarettes may be brought in.
