Robert J. Chapman, PhD, past Assistant Clinical Professor & Associate Director, College of Nursing & Health Professions Behavioral & Addictions Sciences Counseling Program, Drexel University “Dr. Frank’s interest in the field, dedication to providing quality service to those with SUDs, and willingness to share his expertise–not to mention professional resources like his office space and professional time to support other SUD treatment professionals–suggest that Philly and its practitioners, and by association those with SUDs, are better for it…thank you Jeremy, I am a better professional and person for knowing you.”

Sarah Espenshade LCSW CAADC, Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor, Bryn Mawr.“Jeremy Frank is one of my most respected colleagues in the drug and alcohol field. He is genuine, compassionate, open minded and has a great sense of humor. Unlike most, psychologists and psychiatrists he is also a Certified Drug and Alcohol Counselor and shares openly that he is also in recovery. Jeremy approaches each client with an open mind and recognizes that there are multiple pathways to recovery including the 12 step approach, SMART recovery, and evidence-based practices. Jeremy helps the client find the path that is right for them. Jeremy is able to relate to almost anyone younger or older, from the rooms of AA to the staunch atheist. Jeremy treats all of his clients and colleagues with dignity and respect and well liked by his peers. He has years of experience in the drug and alcohol field, has worked at Rehab After Work and has connections at Drexel, the University of Pennsylvania and the Caron Foundation. It gives me great pleasure to endorse Jeremy and I would refer my closest friends and family members to him any day.”

I typically test these tools through randomized controlled trials funded by NIH Institutes (NIDA and NIAAA) as well as other funding sources. I am a colleague of Jeremy’s (a substance abuse treatment professional who understands evidence based treatment). Jeremy Frank is my number one “go to” referral for friends, family and acquaintances in the Philadelphia / Main Line area who need care for addictions and substance use disorders. He goes above and beyond and delivers evidence based care seasoned with experience and from a personal knowledge of recovery.
Gary Ames, MA, Licensed Psychologist Bala Cynwyd “When you need the help of a psychologist you want to look for several things as basic. You want someone who attends to you, sees you, hears you and is with you, on your side, whatever that is. You also want professionalism. This includes ethics, expertise and effectiveness. Jeremy Frank has all these qualities. You can feel comfortable with him diving in to discuss and resolve the psychological issues that are impairing the quality of your life.”
Jacquline Zarro PhD Past Vice President, Operational Account Management, Premier Research, Philadelphia Pennsylvania. “I have known Jeremy Frank for over 20 years since our doctoral program at Drexel University. He was the president of the graduate student society and he founded a student assistance program to offer counseling and support to medical, nursing and other students struggling with drug and alcohol issues in school. Jeremy was well extremely well liked by peers and professors alike. He began his work at The University of Pennsyvania Counseling Center and continued to work in the field of college and university counseling for the next 15 years holding notable positions in major college counseling centers in Philadelphia. His research and clinical activities have been broad and diverse and his passion for substance abuse counseling, treatment and education have been without parallel. Jeremy obtained a position at Rehab After Work which he maintained while conducting research into adult attachment and recovery from substance dependence. I have maintained a very close friendship with him since graduate school and have followed his career and work for the past 20 years. Most importantly as a therapist, there is no one in whom I have more confidence. I have recommended him as a therapist practitioner countless times and he has consulted to colleagues on many occasions. He is warm, compassionate and extremely bright. Further, he is kind, funny and caring, and he as a therapist he is seen as a trustworthy source at all times. His practice appears to be flourishing and it may be hard to find a time to see him these days as he has become quite popular and sought after as a psychologist and addiction counselor. As others have said in reviews that I have read for Jeremy he offers valuable service and support both a psychologist and addictions counselor he is able to provide a comprehensive mental health and substance abuse assessment. There is no addiction psychologist I would recommend more highly.”

He is one of those guys that is easy to relate to, and knows what he is doing. A rarity! He will help you, and keep you on the right track. Dr. Frank cares deeply about his clients, and is on the cutting edge in his profession. Dr. Frank’s practice is considered one of the very best in the Delaware Valley. If you are suffering and are reluctant because of prior therapists who have done little to help you, then you should look no further. He is one who will help, if you are ready to accept it.”

I recommend him highly.”
Natalie Petyk PsyD Counseling and Psychological Services St Joseph’s University and Clinical Psychologist practicing in Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania “Dr. Frank has the perfect combination of warm humanistic qualities and professional acumen to make him an excellent psychologist. He possesses the sensitivity and thoughtfulness necessary to help his clients explore the most sensitive parts of themselves and the most complicated of their interpersonal relationships. He creates a safe and non-judgmental space and is genuinely concerned for the well-being and growth of every individual with whom he works. He also lets his own “realness” out, which is refreshing to be around as a patient, when one can oftentimes feel intimidated by the process of making themselves vulnerable. I can picture Dr. Frank having an ability to make a therapeutic connection with a wide array of individuals, from varied backgrounds, as he is flexible in his approach and style. As a licensed clinical psychologist, I share this from the perspective of a fellow colleague.”

As a Licensed Psychologist and Certified Addiction Counselor, Dr. Frank provides his clients with a unique experience–a clinician who can address the complicated interaction between addiction and mental health concerns. His extensive clinical experience has earned him positions as Coordinator of Campus Alcohol and Substance Awareness at Temple University and Assistant Director of Student Health and Counseling at the University of the Sciences. More importantly, Dr. Frank is a warm, empathic clinician who has demonstrated the highest standards of professionalism in his work. He strives to meet the needs of his clients by providing them with individually tailored methods that meet them where they’re at in the change process. It is for these reasons that I, without reservation, recommend Dr. Frank’s services” (Nov 2010)
Al For, Official Lead Photographer at The Green Legion, Event Photographer/ Corporate/ Social Websites at albfor photography, Lead Photographer at UpcomingEvents.comPast Multimedia Specialist University of the Sciences in Philadelphia “I’ve known Dr. Jeremy Frank for over 12 years! Dr Jeremy Frank is easy to talk to. He has a way of making you see the good in you. I have referred friends and colleagues to him in the past who have been helped tremendously. Years ago when I was in charge of the Multimedia Lab at The University of the Sciences in Philadelphia he was one of the most well respected and popular men on campus. Students, staff and faculty alike sought him out for guidance, support and help with personal and administrative issues but he was always more than just a psychologist / therapist / counselor. He’s a really nice guy, a good family man and a pretty decent, well, ok, basketball and soccer player. When someone is seeking help for personal problems relating to alcohol use or addiction or other family and relationship issues you don’t want to see a stuffy academic doctor. You want to see someone who is human and down to earth and who seems to have lived a little. Dr. Frank is someone who has walked the walk and you’ll find he is really good at talking the talk to. Dr. Jeremy knows his business… it’s his life. Dr Frank is both a psychologist and certified addictions counselor which is an unusual combination of certification. I’ve had friends who have seen therapists who were drug and alcohol counselors and knew very little about depression or other mental health concerns. On the other side of the coin, I’ve heard countless stories of doctors who have known nothing about addiction. Yes, Jeremy is an excellent therapist and I recommend him highly.”
Ms. Jody Miller, BA, MFT, PC, Marriage & Family Therapist, Philadelphia PA. “Dr. Jeremy Frank is the first professional in my 20 year career with whom I feel I can honestly share any concerns about my practice and get great advice. He is also a very soothing and supportive person with whom it is easy to admit what troubles me. And on top of that, he is very smart about running a good private practice where patients get access to a great therapist!”
Dina Harth, PhD, Psychologist Bryn Mawr, PA. “I have known Dr. Jeremy Frank professionally for over 18 years and recommend him highly for individuals in need of drug, alcohol or other addictions counseling in the Philadelphia area. Dr. Jeremy Frank is an exceptional therapist given his unique training as both a Psychologist and Certified Addictions Counselor. I trust his work particularly because he has the unique combination of being a grounded and intelligent individual who has extensive training, knowledge and experience, as well as a relaxed style that makes him very approachable and easy to be with. He is very open and thoughtful which allows him to help clients understand what is happening for them on deeper levels and make changes that help them function well and feel better. I recommend Dr. Frank without reservation.”
Dr. Dennis Debiak PsyD, Psychologist, 300 S Chester Rd, Swarthmore, PA 19081 “Jeremy Frank is my “go to” person regarding addressing substance abuse issues in psychotherapy. In addition to being a highly skilled psychologist overall, he is a very helpful and knowledgeable consultant to therapists who are struggling with how to work best with clients with substance abuse issues.”
