Philadelphia, the City of Brotherly Love

Philadelphia is a cultural and economic anchor in the Northeastern Corridor; its impacts spread through Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, and Delaware. But behind the gloss of the modern skyscrapers that dominate the city’s skyline lies a growing problem – a problem that many Philadelphians don’t want to talk about.

Statistics reveal that this city had the second-highest rate of drug overdose deaths in 2016, with most of them connected to opioid abuse. Only Allegheny County, also in Pennsylvania, had a higher rate. Thankfully, there’s help. Drug rehab centers in the Greater Philadelphia Region provide medical and emotional support for citizens who want to overcome addiction. These centers provide people with a lifeline, some brotherly love, a place where they can start over.

Solutions for a Complex Problem

Philadelphia has been struggling against the tide of substance abuse for decades. The American crack cocaine epidemic of the '80s and '90s was rampant in this city, and now Opioid abuse is sweeping the streets and destroying neighborhoods. More than 900 people died from drug overdose in Philadelphia in 2016, and medical professionals discovered opioids in more than 80 percent of these deaths, according to the Philadelphia Department of Public Health.  "Philadelphia is perhaps the most cruelly affected of big cities by the opioid epidemic," says The Economist.

At Caron Philadelphia, conveniently located in Plymouth Meeting, right off the Pennsylvania Turnpike and Rt. 476 (the Blue Route), our doors are always open. We encourage family, friends, alumni, or anyone needing help to stop in any time. In a city built on freedom, our drug and alcohol rehabilitation services and support can offer release from the physical and emotional bindings of addiction.
