Gaudenzia operates more than 100 drug and alcohol treatment centers across Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, and Washington, D.C. We offer men’s- and women’s-only treatment programs, as well as programs for pregnant and parenting mothers, adolescents, and people suffering from co-occurring mental illness and substance abuse. Every day, Gaudenzia continues to improve and expand our services, helping individuals, families, and communities overcome the ravages of addiction.
Gaudenzia MissionGaudenzia helps individuals and families affected by drug and alcohol dependency, mental illness, and related conditions to achieve a better quality of life and become accountable individuals. This is accomplished through a continuum of care that focuses on long-term recovery, guided by a philosophy of mutual concern, personal responsibility, research, and community education.
Gaudenzia PhilosophyWe are here because there is no refuge, finally, from ourselves. Until people confront themselves in the eyes and hearts of others, they are running. Until they suffer others to share their secrets, they have no safety from them. Afraid to be known, they can know neither themselves nor any other; they will be alone.
