Located in Emmaus, New Vitae The Mitchell Clinic provides intensive counseling for adults with mental health, addiction and co-occurring disorders.  We provide the structure and support that many find crucial to coping with the stress of life.  Our services are customized through the use of three service tracks: behavioral health, co-occurring disorders, and substance dependency.  Our team approach provides integrated psychiatric choices as well as individual and group therapy, family therapy, and addictions counseling/education to assist with achieving recovery and holistic health goals.  

Services include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), relapse prevention, Motivational Interviewing, relaxation skill building, mindfulness, and assertive communication skills training, all offered through day and evening programming.  

Our day program is a half-day, five- day-a-week support model that can be customized to personal schedules.   The day program runs from 9 am to 12:30 noon, Monday through Friday.  We also have an evening/weekend program:  Monday, Tuesday and Thursdays from 5:30 to 8:30; Saturday from 9 am to 12 noon.

Our small group sizes and collaborative approach assists each participant with connecting to peers in the clinic and the larger community.  We utilize the self-help groups and encourage individuals to consistently attend services.  We use a lens of psychoeducation that reinforces tools to maintain lasting sobriety and emotional stability.

We are licensed by the Pennsylvania Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (OMHSAS) as well as the Division of Drug and Alcohol Programs (DDAP).  We are also accredited by the Joint Commission.

Frequently asked questions:

•    What makes your program different?

We are a small, more relaxed program with an average client age of 35.  We are staffed to support those with a variety of behavioral health and substance use needs.  Our average group size is 8 to 11 participants.  Most participants utilize services for roughly six weeks (based on clinical needs and preferences), and develop daily schedules that work best in their routines.

•    Can I initiate services quickly?

New Vitae The Mitchell Clinic can complete an initial evaluation in 48 hours from phone call.  We then begin treatment the following day.  We begin with an initial phone call to gather information.  At that time, we set up an appointment with a therapist to conduct an assessment.  This assessment will form the basis of developing your personalized plan of care that incorporates various individual and group exercises/assignments that assist with finding clues for lasting change.

•    Will I have access to psychiatric care?

Yes.  New Vitae The Mitchell Clinic integrates psychiatric care into the overall treatment inexperience.    The psychiatric specialists are a part of our team.

•    Will I need to maintain abstinence from drug and alcohol use before I start treatment?

Typically, yes; however, we will evaluate needs on a case-by-case basis.  We also accept individuals who are currently using Suboxone to manage cravings from opiate addiction.

•    How do other individuals respond to New Vitae The Mitchell Clinic’s services?

Individuals who are focused on achieving sobriety and/or emotional stability use our services to improve their lives and their relationships with others.  They see a personal need and wish to heal.  This makes for a much more cohesive program.  We consistently receive top ratings from clients of our services.

"I really appreciated the personal attention.  My addiction centered on trauma, and this was the first group that recognized that and validated my feelings.  I will be forever grateful."
