At Endless Mountains Extended Care, we take a comprehensive approach utilizing multiple pathways to treating substance use disorders.
Everybody faces unique challenges in recovery, and we work with each client to design a treatment plan best suited to their individual needs, ranging from 30 to 90 days. Through a combination of individual counseling, 12 Step/SMART Recovery meetings, cognitive and rational emotive behavioral therapies, relapse prevention, adventure therapy, life skills development, and Medically- Assisted Treatment options, we prepare our clients for long-term success in both recovery and life.
EMEC began when founder and Clinical Director Dr. Arianne Scheller, Ph.D., partnered with her father, Steve Scheller – himself in long-term recovery – to create a new vision for a treatment facility in Northeastern Pennsylvania. “My father has struggled with addiction throughout his life,” says Dr. Scheller. “He’s been sober for twenty years, and I’m proud to say I’ve been with him throughout his recovery journey. He went from standing on Death’s Door to building a strong, lasting sobriety and a successful commercial building business.”
“Without a doubt, my greatest accomplishment in sobriety has been rebuilding my relationship with my family,” says Steve Scheller. “I can’t tell you how it feels to have my daughter’s name my grandson Stephen after me – but I can tell you it wouldn’t have happened without my recovery.”
Having seen the transformative effect recovery can have on a family first-hand, Dr. Arianne and Stephen Scheller took what they viewed as the next logical step: opening a facility to help other families discover the joy they know is possible with long-term sobriety.
