Our founder, Dr. Volpicelli, is known for his scientific play on the famous Jerry McGuire quote. He is continually saying, “show me the data.”
After several decades of clinical research and academic contributions, Dr. Volpicelli learned that few research data were being applied to clinical practice.
Inspired to apply real findings into real clinical practice, Dr. Volpicelli left the University of Pennsylvania and opened the Volpicelli Center. He had one goal in mind:
Utilize the information derived from research to help real members of the community.
Since opening in 2009, The Volpicelli Center has incorporated evidence-based practices into every element of our program; from the treatment models to the medications to the program design.
The research proves frequent patient engagement produces higher retention in treatment. For this reason, our program was designed to include four phrases to effectively free you from addiction and deliver you into sustained sobriety.
