Retreat Premier Addiction Treatment Centers Transitions to Retreat Behavioral Health, with Expanded Mental Health Services

Retreat Premier Addiction Treatment Centers, the highly-respected industry leader in substance abuse treatment, today announced a corporate transition to Retreat Behavioral Health, a comprehensive provider of substance abuse and mental health treatment services.

Under the auspices of Retreat Behavioral Health, the organization will continue to spearhead its standard-setting substance abuse services, while adding on new services dedicated to mental healthcare and co-occurring disorders.

At the inpatient level, Retreat has been granted a license at its Lancaster County, PA, residential site to treat patients with a dual diagnosis — that is, a drug/alcohol problem and a specific mental health condition. These conditions include disorders such as anxiety, depression, personality disorders, and PTSD, among others.

At the outpatient level, Retreat will continue to operate its successful after-care programming for graduates of our inpatient program, but offer new specialties in providing psychotherapy and medical diagnoses for ordinary patients struggling with a mental health condition independent of substance misuse altogether.

This transition reflects Retreat’s goal of serving our patients on diverse levels, assuming the role of a valuable and flexible contributor to the well-being of the communities we serve.

“Our expansion into the mental health space has grown naturally out of what we do as a substance abuse treatment provider,” said Peter Schorr, President & CEO of Retreat Behavioral Health, who founded the organization in 2011. “Many of our patients battle entrenched mental health disorders, too, which are often at the heart of their addiction. It’s important to treat both simultaneously, to give them the best chance of maintaining long-term recovery.”

“We’re confident that our expansion will bolster our existing services and underscore Retreat’s ultimate goal: To be a provider of the highest-quality care for our patients and their loved ones,” Schorr concluded.


Retreat Behavioral Health is a respected provider of substance abuse and mental health treatment services. With a number of locations along the East Coast and a multitude of inpatient and outpatient services, Retreat’s goal is to help people easily access the best quality of care in a holistic and peaceful environment. We are in-network with most major insurances, and our admissions department operates ‪24/7‬. Our on-site clinical and medical staff are leaders in their fields, committed to working tirelessly on behalf of our patients.
