According to recent data from the National Alliance on Mental Illness, in Pennsylvania:

  • Nearly 20% of adults have a mental health condition, with 39.8% of adults reporting symptoms of anxiety or depression.
  • 447,000 adults have a serious mental illness.
  • 25.7% reporting mental health symptoms were unable to get needed therapy.

“Pennsylvania and the surrounding region continue to experience an increasing demand for residential mental health treatment services, and STR Behavioral Health is leading the charge in addressing this unmet need,” said Richard Clark, CEO of Odyssey. “This upcoming expansion underscores our unwavering commitment to delivering evidence-based treatment and quality care to those in need.”

Over the past two years, STR Behavioral Health has addressed the region’s treatment gap by opening a new state-of-the-art detoxification wing in 2022 and expanding existing residential services for those battling addiction and dual diagnosis conditions. Additionally, STR Behavioral Health expanded its outpatient service network in 2023, which treats mental health, addiction, and dual diagnosis conditions, with an additional location in Lehigh Valley providing partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient programs.

STR Behavioral Health’s Silver Pines campus also added services to support our nation’s veterans as an approved provider of the VA Community Care Network and became PsychArmor Certified as a Veteran Ready Healthcare Organization.

The upcoming mental health subacute residential facility is nestled on 13 acres, just 30 miles outside of Philadelphia, in the heart of Bucks County. This unique 30-bed facility, designed with intimate and personalized care in mind, will provide an ideal client-to-clinician ratio for unparalleled individualized attention, support, and holistic recovery.

Additionally, the facility’s dedication to in-network coverage with major insurance providers reflects its commitment to making high-quality mental health care accessible to as many individuals as possible.

“STR Behavioral Health has become an invaluable partner to acute hospitals and outpatient providers, and we’re bridging the current gap in mental health care in Pennsylvania,” said Cory Cooper, CEO of STR Behavioral Health. “We are excited to develop this comprehensive mental health program to address the complex needs of our clients and offer a level of care and support that is largely unavailable in the region.”
