I'm new to the board. A family member confided in me that their spouse is drinking heavily......anyway, I gave the person the name of a D&A therapist in Phila are. Unfortunately the therapist does not take insurance payments and the family member is in No position to pay out of pocket. IMHO there probably is a need help the family member in getting therapy for themselves and help with setting up an intervention,but I am unsure where to find information about places that can help with this. Any palces/therapists you might recommend who accept health insurance in the Montgomery Co, or Chester Co Area?

Hi J,

A lot of rehab and treatment centers take insurance. There are a list of centers on this site which also include telephone numbers and websites. Several major treatment centers are Eagleville, Livengrin and Univ of Penn.

Perhaps they could check with their family doctor for a list of rehab therapists in their area. When my husband needed help, our physician gave him the names of several that accepted our insurance & also offered to make the 1st appointment so that my husband wouldn't back out. It was the best thing that ever could have happened to us.
