Dr. Frank's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Frank "Dr. Jeremy Frank who oversees Jeremy Frank and Associates is both a psychologist and certified alcohol and drug counselor. Dr Frank is also in recovery from personal addiction with over 25 years of sobriety having chosen to get clean and sober at age 25. Jeremy has extensive treatment and supervisory experience having served as the Coordinator of Campus Alcohol and Substance Awareness at Tuttleman Counseling Services at Temple University and the Assistant Director of Health and Counseling and the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia. He has had positions at Drexel University, The University of Pennsylvania, University of Florida, Hahnemann University, and Jefferson University. He lives with his wife and two children in Philadelphia and is an avid soccer player, walker, and gardener, which are part and parcel examples of, and a testament to, people's ability to trade compulsive behaviors for positive addictions, structure, social support and ritualized dependency on healthy alternatives in one's life. He seeks to help others find meaning and purpose in their lives, and to support connection in intimate relationships with friends and family. Jeremy Frank and Associates is a group of like-minded clinicians who treat substance use disorders and other mental health concerns with primarily evidenced-based and empirically informed approaches to counseling. We understand that there is no one treatment for addictive-like behaviors and mental health issues that will work for everyone. We take pride in having a wide range of experience in techniques and approaches that have been shown to be effective in a variety of ways. For example, while we support abstinence for clients who need or want to be abstinent, we are aware that many clients are not ready to be abstinent. Our first objective is to work to determine whether they can be social or recreational users. Rarely have any of us seen it work in simply telling someone to stop drinking. If that worked you probably wouldn't be looking for information on this site. Good therapy helps individuals achieve their goals in their own terms, with free will, self determinism and collaboration. Our therapists are specially trained in the use of Harm Reduction approaches, which help people learn to to take better care of themselves, be safe and make improvements in their habits and their lives. We are equally and well equipped if it is necessary to become sober and remain abstinent to offer evidenced-based strategies including 1) cognitive behavioral therapy and relapse prevention, 2) motivational enhancement therapy, and motivational interviewing 3) twelve-step facilitation therapy, 4) mindfulness-based relapse prevention and mindfulness-based stress reduction, 5) psychoeducation in Vaillant's four factors widely shown to be effective in relapse prevention as well as adjunctive work such as Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), trauma work and a variety of behavioral psychology approaches such as functional analysis, Community Reinforcement and Family Training (CRAFT), Systematic Desensitization and Exposure approaches. We can provide consult to assist with evaluation of individuals seeking all levels of substance use, abuse and dependence and help them and their families make decisions about what level of care is appropriate for them. This conversation would include consideration of outpatient, medication management, detox, inpatient, sober living and intensive outpatient. We are also highly experienced and competent in treating behavioral addictions such as addictions to sex, love, gambling, internet, gaming, shopping and food."
