Frequently Asked Questions For The Counseling Center at Cherry Hill

The Counseling Center offers comprehensive substance use and mental health treatments in Philadelphia. When you come to our outpatient facility, you’ll discover the therapy you need to have to boost your recovery. We’ll help you deal with everyday life without leaning on unhealthy substances.

Prior to your arrival, be sure to review our Philadelphia intensive outpatient FAQs. You’ll see answers to a good deal of your questions here. And if you still need information about something in particular, reach out to 856-600-0951 any time for help.

Our intensive outpatient program (IOP) is designed for people who require continued addiction recovery support and mental health. Unlike in residential programs, you’ll go home after attending therapy at our outpatient facility. This program allows you to maintain your usual responsibilities while still receiving help for mental illness and drug or alcohol use.

The abundance of people who begin IOP in our facility have already completed detox and inpatient residential programs. At this point, they are ready to delve into issues in a more thorough manner via therapy to address the mental side of substance use. The Counseling Center Philadelphia offers several kinds of intensive outpatient care depending on where you are in your recovery. Following a medical evaluation, we assign a personalized plan of treatment adapted to your unique situation. At this point, you’ll get started with different therapy appointments each week led by our experienced counselors. During therapy, you’ll see how to live without alcohol or drugs and how to manage any mental disorders that contributed to substance use to begin with.

Due to the fact that we customize our treatments for individual patients, The Counseling Center at Cherry Hill uses several therapy techniques to accommodate your unique requirements. With that being so, practically everyone attends some combination of individual, group, and family therapy.

All forms of therapy are conducted by certified clinicians who are here to help you. Throughout treatment, you may discuss topics including:

  • How disorders -- such as bipolar, trauma, and anxiety disorder -- prompt substance use 
  • Post-acute withdrawal syndrome · Relapse prevention skills 
  • The benefits of 12-Step programs in recovery 
  • How families can cope over the course of addiction recovery


In addition, you’ll undergo support for any co-occurring or mental health disorders that played a role in your drug or alcohol use. Contingent on your particular diagnosis, you may receive:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy
  • Dialectical behavioral therapy
  • Trauma-informed therapy
  • Motivational interviewing


There isn’t a standard answer to this because each individual has distinct recovery objectives and advances through our alcohol or drug therapy at a different pace. Some people work with us for eight weeks while others maintain their treatment for three or more years. And, needless to say, you are encouraged to return as often as you like.

No, IOP will not include detox or inpatient rehab treatment. If you are uncertain if you need one of these services before seeking outpatient care at The Counseling Center, you are encouraged to call 856-600-0951. One of our representatives will reply promptly and advise you on finding the care you need at a different facility.

Inpatient and outpatient treatments are different types of care. At inpatient care, you stay in a residential facility with access to support 24 hours a day. Inpatient treatment gives you a safe environment to step away from triggers and trauma and get persistent assistance when you detox or recover from drugs or alcohol or are in danger of relapsing during rehab.

Outpatient options are appropriate if you have advanced to a point in your recovery where you don’t require constant direction or medical intervention. Outpatient choices help you stay sober with peer support sessions and therapy while balancing your normal activities. You are able to receive treatment several days every week but stay in your own home as you keep working towards lasting sobriety.

The Counseling Center Philadelphia is a secular entity. While we believe your faith may play a role in drug and alcohol use recovery, our care isn’t guided by any religious beliefs.

We find the 12-step method is helpful for numerous individuals. Our facility uses some principles of 12-step programs, including an emphasis on group therapy in our care. We also host 12-step meetings on-site, and a majority of individuals in our care participate in these. With that in mind, our focus is to consistently offer individualized treatment for your needs and preferences.

We highly encourage family involvement in therapy, and we offer weekly family support groups. Our skilled family counselors will help you and your family members:


  • Understand addiction and mental health 
  • Manage the stress of substance use recovery 
  • Enhance communication abilities 
  • Work through concerns 
  • Identify co-dependency habits 
  • Restore trust 
  • Find how to support each other


Your loved ones might find it helpful to start by participating in a family education gathering. These sessions are hosted each Wednesday evening and provide families guidance about how to support a relative in drug or alcohol recovery.

The first step in getting drug and alcohol therapy in Philadelphia is to contact us at 856-600-0951 to arrange a meeting for an assessment. This meeting will let us get to know you and your medical history and where you stand in your alcohol or drug use recovery. With these important details, we may design a custom-tailored treatment plan and schedule therapy that will help you the most.

Your assessment consists of:


  • An interview process 
  • Completion of questionnaires 
  • Your medical history 
  • Psycho-social evaluations 
  • Urine and/or breath evaluation


The information gathered and your honest responses will allows us to construct the most suitable treatment plan for you.
