Addiction treatment is the management and care of a patient suffering from drug or alcohol abuse, in order to reduce or eliminate the adverse effects of the disease upon the patient. It is important to know that no single treatment approach is appropriate for all individuals, and that sustained recovery may require multiple courses of treatment with multiple approaches, as is true for other illnesses or diseases.
In-patient, out-patient, intensive… The levels of care can be confusing when it comes to addiction treatment. When entering treatment, an assessment will help evaluate what level is most appropriate for the best care. At COCA, we categorize the care provided by our contracted providers into the following groups.
Withdrawal Management, also known as detoxification or detox, is the process of eliminating an addictive substance from the body.Read More »

Our contracted treatment providers are licensed and undergo on-site inspection by the PA Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs (DDAP). Additionally, COCA performs regular monitoring of each contracted provider to assure compliance with the conditions of the contract. Drug and alcohol treatment services are governed by both federal and Pennsylvania drug and alcohol confidentiality regulations. All programs must adhere to the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA) developed to protect the security, confidentiality, and integrity of health information. As such, the privacy of the clients and the services provided are strictly enforced.
COCA-funded treatment follows the continuum of care as suggested by the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM).
