Our Premier Outpatient Addiction Treatment Options

We are an intimate, comprehensive addiction treatment center fully invested in your lifelong recovery. And you are on the first step to recovery.

Outpatient Detox

This 3–7-day process is vital for lasting recovery. Our ambulatory detoxification allows our clients to remain home with their families or even go to work as addictive substances are safely and comfortably removed from their bodies.

Medical Treatment to Assist in Long-term Recovery

For clients who are free from dependence on alcohol or other drugs, our goal is to reduce the risk of relapse and improve psychosocial functioning. This typically includes the combination of medications that reduce drug cravings and block the pleasurable effects of drugs or alcohol.

Outpatient Substance Abuse Counseling

Our psychosocial support is designed to work together with medications to improve long-term recovery. Treatment is individualized to meet each person's specific needs. This second aspect of rehabilitation at the Volpicelli Center is crucial to your recovery.

Are you looking for Vivitrol, Suboxone, or Sublocade treatments?

Our clinicians are trained to safely prescribe, administer, and monitor these medications.

The Volpicelli Center Treatment Philosophy

Addiction is a multilayered and complex condition. It is a physical, psychological, social, and very personal behavioral disorder. There are many treatment options offered by programs with very different treatment philosophies. All of this can make recovery seem daunting.  At a time when the chance of drug overdose for people under 50 is higher that the chance of dying from COVID, we believe that all evidence-based treatment options should be offered.

At our center we offer cutting edge addiction treatments led by our founder, Joseph Volpicelli MD, PhD. During his time as a  Professor at the University of Pennsylvania, he developed naltrexone to treat people with alcohol addiction. He also developed and wrote a book on how to best integrate psychosocial treatment with medications.

We believe that the path to freedom from addiction is to offer the right treatment to the right person at the right time.
