Good drug and alcohol treatment depending on what you're looking for. This used to be the best treatment center in Philadelphia hands down. Insurance companies paid entirely for Intensive Outpatient Treatment and the staff was comprised of and run by psychologists and clinicians in recovery and there was an electric excitement about the program and what it meant to be clean and sober and recovering with cool and hip other recovering addicts and alcoholics in Philadelphia. Rehab After Work was intricately connected to Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous and they fed off each other in an infectious way. Coming to RAW made people want to be a recovering addict. The program has been sold twice in the last 15 years to a hospital and then to a bigger business venture. This affects clinician's considerations to follow the bottom line. I've had clients admitted for group treatment where they were not appropriate for the group they were assigned. I've had clients turned away because they were on the medication Suboxone for opiate maintenance as prescribed by an addiction psychiatrist because the therapists didn't understand how to work with patients from an evidenced based harm reduction model. The requirements for being a primary therapist have waned over the years and I know no psychologists who work there. Many of the certified addiction counselors are not even masters level. All this said, I still feel it's the best game in town for Intensive Outpatient group therapy. Better than Livengrin and American Day Treatment, the major competition. Since IOP is so important in early addiction I still recommend Rehab After Work. You won't get much individual therapy so make sure you still have a good addiction psychologist/therapist before you start IOP at a place like RAW and throughout your treatment for that matter. The therapeutic value of one alcoholic helping another is without parallel, so the RAW experience remains an invaluable part of anyone's recovery. I would just recommend that you get a thorough work up with your addiction psychologist first to see whether you'd benefit from individual vs group treatment and if group is the way to go then which form of group treatment is the best for you.
