We use evidence based approaches including cognitive-behavioral therapy, relapse prevention, motivational interviewing , and harm reduction strategies to best serve our clientele .

Areas of Specialization

  • Individualized Treatment
    Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.

  • Client & Family Support Groups
    Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.

Operated two facilities, with locations in the communities of Doylestown and Washington Crossing, Pa., Bucks County Psychological provides a range of counseling services for individuals struggling with mental health concerns. The treatment provider also offers evidence-based programs for individuals struggling with chemical dependency, as well as co-occurring disorders.


Before beginning treatment, clients participate in a 10-minute phone consultation, which is followed by an in-person psychiatric and/or substance abuse assessment. Unique to Bucks County Psychological, the facility coordinates with the client to produce a solutions-focused treatment plan, which is determined by the individual's specific goals and needs. For instance, the facility offers both a abstinence-focused treatment program, as well as drinking moderation consults.

Bucks County Psychological utilizes a range of evidence-based treatment approaches, namely cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and motivational interviewing (MI). CBT is primarily designed to help clients identify and modify the relationship between irrational thinking and maladaptive behaviors, while MI helps clients to set and achieve obtainable goals.

Bucks County Psychological's individualized approach is determined by the client's assessed needs. If a client is struggling with trauma-related concerns, the facility may also incorporate psychodynamic therapy, which delves into any past traumatic events that may affect present thinking and/or behaviors. Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) may also be integrated into the treatment plan, helping individuals to modify their reaction, and alleviate the stress, associated with traumatic memories.

Clients struggling with a primary psychiatric concern may participate in individual therapy, as well as family/couples counseling to address any issues related to family dynamics or relationship conflicts. Bucks County Psychological also facilitates topic- or condition-related group counseling sessions. In addition, the facility may provide ongoing psychiatric evaluations and medication management to alleviate psychiatric symptoms.

As stated, clients struggling with difficulties related to substance abuse may help plan their individual treatment plan, depending on their specific goals. Bucks County Psychological offers both a harm reduction plan, such as drinking in moderation, as well as treatment programs designed to promote abstinence. Along with individual and group counseling sessions, which may utilize CBT and MI approaches, substance abuse programs also incorporate coping skill workshops to help prevent relapse. In addition, the facility offers Vivitrol and Suboxone education for individual in a medication-assisted treatment (MAT) regimen.

The doctor here is a professional colleague to whom I confidently refer any clients who are struggling with substance abuse. He is thoughtful, caring, brilliant, and has in-depth expertise in the treatment of substance use disorders. When it comes to substance abuse treatment, I know of no other provider in the Philadelphia area who can bring the unparalleled level of experience, knowledge, and genuine consideration that he offers his patients.
