New Addiction Treatment Facility Opening in Philadelphia to Help Battle the Opioid Epidemic

The number of people struggling with opioid addiction in Pennsylvania has long been higher than the national average. In fact, the state ranks third for drug overdose deaths, according to the CDC.

There simply aren’t enough treatment beds in the area to provide those with drug or alcohol addiction the support they need.

Ambrosia Treatment Center is looking to change that with their brand new location in Philadelphia. The facility will help more than 1,500 people a year, including an entire floor dedicated to the severely underserved Medicaid population.

The clinical and medical programs in Philadelphia will be run by industry veteran and addiction studies adjunct professor Joe Curran MBA, CEAP, CACD.

“I’ve seen it all in my 42 years doing this,” Curran said. “The problem is only getting worse in the Northeast. Kids are becoming statistics and the statistics are tragic. As a treatment center, as a community and as human begins, we have to do everything we can to turn things around.”

While the location in Pennsylvania is new, the Ambrosia name has been around for more than 11 years.

In 2013, Joe Ashdale found himself flying from Philadelphia to Ambrosia’s original drug rehab in Port St. Lucie, Florida. Heroin turned the former student president of Gwynedd Mercy University into an addict that forged checks from the only family member that still spoke to him.

“Before Ambrosia, I had no purpose in life; no value. I was a useless son, brother, employee and human being,” said Ashdale.

He is now nearly six years sober with a steady career, a wife, a daughter and another baby on the way.

“It’s hard enough fighting the addiction. No one should have to fight to get treatment too,” he said.

While Ambrosia’s Philadelphia facility is a huge step in the right direction, more needs to be done to help the government-estimated 120,000 Pennsylvanians struggling with addiction covered under Medicaid.

The new center is located at 2301 E Allegheny Ave in Philadelphia, PA 19134. For help or other inquiries, call (888) 492-5288.

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.

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

I have more questions.
