Ambrosia Treatment Center announces Multifaceted Partnership with Drexel University

Philadelphia’s  to employ Drexel University co-op students & research addiction treatment outcomes

Philadelphia drug rehab clinic Ambrosia Treatment Center and Drexel University College of Nursing and Health Professions are teaming up to provide students with real-world experience treating substance abuse and mental health. The partnership will give students hands-on healthcare experience as part of their co-op program by assisting with medically-supervised inpatient substance abuse detox and mental health counseling programs. Students will not only serve their local community members but also provide world-class, science-based addiction treatment in a real clinical setting. Ambrosia drug and alcohol treatment centers provide clinical, data-driven drug and alcohol recovery programs.

Drexel University Partners with Ambrosia

Drexel University College of Nursing and Health can trace its roots to Drexel Institute of Art, Science and Industry founded in 1891, by Anthony J. Drexel (founder of Drexel, Morgan & Co, later known as J.P. Morgan & Co. in 1871).  Since 2002, the College has embraced the integration of learning and work through work cooperative education, research and deep civic engagement.  Drexel University College of Nursing and Health has been training aspiring medical professionals for over a century. Part of the university’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing curriculum is full-time employment in the form of a co-op. Students gain clinical experience while earning credits towards their degree. According to, 38% of nursing students go on to work full time for a previous co-op employer.  2019 marks the 100th anniversary of Drexel’s co-op work program.  Drexel graduates enter the workforce with direct experience treating patients, making them especially valuable to notable healthcare organizations in the Philadelphia area and beyond.

Ambrosia’s CEO and founder Jerry Haffey is a Philadelphia-native and Drexel university nursing alumni. He earned his Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 2000 before founding Ambrosia Treatment Center’s first drug & alcohol rehab in Florida in 2007. Since that time, the company has grown into multiple-state facilities that treat struggling addicts and alcoholics from PA to across the nation. In 2019, Jerry was awarded the Alumni Entrepreneur Award from Drexel university for his work to stop the growing problem of addiction.

Earlier this year, the company opened the doors of its newest drug rehab center in Philadelphia, PA.  Addiction has become a massive issue for the city, and fatal opioid overdoses are particularly problematic.  Ambrosia is set to hire nursing and support staff through Drexel’s alumni network while participating in Drexel’s co-op job program.

The partnership with Drexel University is a unique opportunity to measure addiction treatment outcomes and at the same time, bolster future substance abuse healthcare professionals.

“Having been through the program, I’m very excited to work with Drexel. They fit right in with our mission to bring quality addiction treatment to Philadelphia and the surrounding counties,” says Haffey.

In the coming months, Ambrosia Treatment Center looks forward to working with Drexel’s nursing program to conduct an evidence-based study focusing on addiction and treatment outcomes.

In addition to their drug rehab in PA, Ambrosia operates addiction facilities in Florida, including:

Drexel University co-op students may reach out to their University Co-op or career placement office or find available positions on Ambrosia’s jobs page.  Ambrosia Treatment Center Human Resources department can also be reached via email at

Treatment is for: Myself Loved one

Not ready to call?

I don’t know if I need treatment.

You’re here because you know the problem is out of control. You’ve spent months if not years trying to convince yourself (and those around you) that your drug or alcohol use isn’t “that bad.”

Don’t let denial drag out the suffering. Addiction is serious. You can (and should) get help before it completely takes over your life.

I don’t know what treatment would be best.

Have you tried getting help before? If so, it’s time to follow the science. The most effective process involves detox, rehab and outpatient treatments.

Don’t be overwhelmed! All you have to do now is call to talk about where you’re at. You’ll take it one step at a time from there. Before you know it, you’ll be sober. You can do this!

I can’t convince my loved one to go.

Even if you’re feeling powerless, there’s always hope! Donny, our dedicated ARISE interventionist, can talk to you today about your options. Following his advice, three of every four people come directly to treatment.

I'm not sure if you can help.

Feelings of doubt and helplessness are part of addiction, but you can find hope here. Our treatment is backed by research partnerships with two universities and hundreds of online reviews. From the Washington Post to CNN to Vice News, our expertise is trusted by the top news sources, as well as professional athletes.

The fact is — thousands of people across the country are living sober, productive lives after their time here. You deserve the same chance.

Now is not a good time.

You may worry about missing out on family or work, but the truth is you’re missing out now when your thoughts are preoccupied on your next fix or you’re too sick or high to show up.

Your job is guaranteed by law. And, your spouse, parents and kids all need you sober.

I have more questions.

It’s normal to have tons of questions, especially about your specific situation, insurance or how it all works. Why not get your questions answered now?

Let's talk through this together.
