Information and Recovery Support Line Now Available Monday-Friday, 9:00am-5:00pm
Addiction is a complex, chronic disease requiring long-term support and recovery management strategies. We have developed a broader array of approaches and strategies to provide access to resources to those seeking help.
The Council draws on 40 years of experience and its reputation as a national leader in recovery-oriented care to offer recovery management strategies, a comprehensive, personalized approach to provide individuals and families with recovery support and skills needed for long-term thriving and growth. While formal treatment is a component of many people's recovery process, a referral to treatment is only a part of a comprehensive approach to sustained wellness and recovery. The recovery management approach moves beyond the provision of information and referral to personalized solutions beginning with recovery planning, taking into consideration individual and family strengths, needs, and goals.
Long-term recovery management recognizes that recovery is not only the absence of substance use, but means improved quality of life, more positive family and community relationships, and holistic wellness. The Council provides comprehensive recovery management including: personalized support solutions, intervention guidance, family consultation services, and long-term recovery support. Recovery management services are available for both individuals and families seeking to address substance use related challenges.
At any stage of recovery, The Council's Alcohol & Other Drug Information and Recovery Support Line (1-800-221-6333) is available Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm, to provide individuals and families with resources and guidance on appropriate steps for moving forward. Information Specialists will help answer your questions concerning alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs. Services are available to all - community members, service providers, community organizations, and professionals who need information, support, referrals and advocacy.
Although there is a wealth of information online and by phone, there is no substitute for the personal touch you get when you come see us at one of our several locations in Southeast Pennsylvania. Our knowledgeable and welcoming staff members will help address your questions and concerns and get you and/or your family started on the path to long-term recovery.

As of July 9, 2015, the Women's Recovery Community Center is a proud member of the Pennsylvania Alliance of Recovery Residences.
The Women's Recovery Community Center (WRCC) is a community center focused on helping women achieve, sustain and enhance their recovery from addiction. We recognize that recovery is not only about maintaining abstinence from substances, but about achieving overall health and wellness and giving back to the community.
We also recognize that women in recovery have unique gender-specific needs that can be met by the support of peers along with assistance from a professional staff. The Women's Recovery Community Center respects all paths to recovery and works with individuals to begin or continue on their recovery journey.
