ABOUT PHILADELPHIA ADDICTION CENTER
Located in the Red Lion Shopping Plaza in Philadelphia, Pa., Philadelphia Addiction Center provides holistic treatment for individuals struggling with addiction utilizing a range of naturopathic approaches, primarily consisting of hypnosis and acupuncture. However, the facility offers other services, including Reiki and homeopathy, for additional health concerns like endocrine disorders, skin conditions, and mental illness.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
According to the facility’s website, all clients first undergo a comprehensive evaluation with a practitioner of Chinese medicine. Based on assessment findings, staff typically recommend an aggressive course of hypnosis and acupuncture that gradually tapers as clients progress through treatment. In Pennsylvania, the facility is among the 2.6 percent of facilities to utilize acupuncture.
The treatment team may also recommend the use of Esperal, a homeopathic medication that is implanted in the body and causes negative side effects when the individual ingests alcohol. In additional, the facility offers holistic pain management services to help clients avoid dependency on prescription pain medication.
According to the facility’s website, all treatment is administered by a practitioner of Chinese medicine and a licensed acupuncturist. The two individuals surveyed by Rehabs.com to date on the staff's level of experience and training both provided five out of five-star ratings.
