Mr. Rotenberg is the Chief Clinical Officer for Caron Pennsylvania. He is recognized throughout the industry as an expert in treating co-occurring mental health disorders, relapse and family issues, and innovative approaches to the intervention and treatment of adolescents and young adults.

During his 20 year tenure at Caron, Mr. Rotenberg has pioneered treatment approaches and developed gender-specific programs that emphasize cultural literacy as a key element in adolescent and young adult addiction treatment. In fact, his assertion that industry experts and parents must “speak teen” in order to prevent and treat adolescent addiction inspired ground-breaking research that identified how teens communicate about alcohol and drugs on the internet. In addition, he has also actively campaigned against the phrase “gateway drug,” which often dismisses the harm caused by alcohol and marijuana on today’s teens and young adults.

Mr. Rotenberg has been the key architect of several new programs on the Caron Pennsylvania campus, including:  the Seniors program, Female program, the Legal Professionals Program, and the Grand View program for people of high talent, affluence, and need for discretion in their treatment experience.  He has also helped put Caron at the forefront of the industry in the treatment of the Jewish population and the LGBTQ populations, furthering his mission of improving cultural literacy within the Caron continuum. He has championed Caron’s combination of clinical competency and philanthropy in response to our local heroin epidemic, targeting Berks’ youngest, most vulnerable citizens for treatment.

Mr. Rotenberg holds a Masters in Psychology from Marywood University and an MBA in Healthcare Administration from Alvernia University. He has been a certified addiction counselor (CAC) since 1996.
