It's only human to feel sad, anxious, even overwhelmed at some point in our lives. Perhaps we know someone who has struggled because of  relationship problems, difficulties at work or school, or drug and alcohol abuse. Left unattended, these issues can affect our well-being and leave us feeling stuck.

Life should not be characterized by uncertainty, insecurity, and instability. It's during these times that people reach out for help.

As a Licensed Psychologist and Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor, I designed my practice to assist intelligent, high-functioning adults, families, teenagers, and professionals overcome the barriers that are affecting their well-being and potential.

People have sought out my practice for a variety of reasons. Many of my clients felt lost or alone and were looking for a safe, private space in which to work through their concerns. Some wanted to determine whether their drug or alcohol use was really a "problem". Others were looking for a more personalized therapeutic experience after struggling with a "one size fits all" treatment program that failed to see them as individuals. Many others wanted to understand how their emotional problems walked hand-in-hand with their substance use. Whatever the reason, they wished for things to be different.

I offer my clients therapeutic services that are flexible and match the nature of their problems. In other words, I meet people where they're at and use techniques that are tailored to their needs. This might include the use of exploratory psychodynamic therapy, action-oriented cognitive-behavioral therapy, group therapy, or evidence-based drug and alcohol therapy.

Therapy offers those struggling and their loved ones an opportunity to halt this progression and reclaim their lives. In my experience, I've found that when people believe in the process of therapy and--more importantly--themselves, incredibly meaningful changes can occur.

"Dr. Coren brings to his patients a truly special combination of depth and breadth of experience and training as a licensed psychologist and certified addictions counselor, plus the personal qualities of compassion, flexibility and enthusiasm. This enables him to work successfully with patients across the lifespan struggling with complex issues of addiction and mental health. He is also a pleasure to collaborate with as a colleague, demonstrating his ability to share his wisdom with respect and professionalism. I am pleased to highly recommend Dr. Coren without reservation." Barry Lessin, M Ed, CACD

"Chad is one of the few licensed psychologists in Pennsylvania who have also received credentialing as a Certified Addictions Counselor Diplomate. Chad is more qualified than most psychologists and addiction counslelors to navigate the often complicated waters of addiction and co-occuring mental health problems. He supported me in building my practice and provided unselfish collegial supervision to many of my friends and colleagues. He exhibits the highest standard of personal integrity in his work which is only matched by the warmth and compassion he shows for his clients. In choosing a therapist especially for drug and alcohol issues I would highly recommend finding someone with both knowledge in mental health processes and addictive disorders. Chad is absolutely that therapist." Jeremy Frank PhD, CAC

"Dr Coren is a clinician with a strong sense of purpose which is supported by immense competence and a proven track record. It is because he and I see things differently, that I am often so impressed with his conceptualizations. He has an eagle-eye for the blind-spots and neglected angles in the therapy, and this is what makes him such a valuable resource during case consultation. Likewise in his own work, he delivers results. If you choose to see Dr. Coren, he will match your effort in the therapy one-to-one. As long as progress is your goal, your progress will be his goal as well. He applies a well-balanced combination of intellect, compassion, and motivation which when combined with the will to change, produces amazing and lasting results. I strongly recommend that you consider working with Dr. Coren when choosing a therapist." Seth Dennis, PsyD

Dr. Coren's Lecture for the Addiction Medicine Block:  "Crossing the Line: Identifying Substance Abuse Disorders in a Pain Population" Friday, March 14, 2014 4:30pm-5:30pm

        Dr. Coren's Keynote Presentation: Substance Use Disorder in a Pain              


  1. Overview: Balancing effective pain management with the increasing prevalence of addiction and drug use disorders poses a complex and often misunderstood challenge in medical care. Often overlooked, both pain and addiction management can be frustrating aspects of clinical care due to lack of provider training, legal concerns, and time constraints in patient care. On one hand patients may hide their use of controlled substances from providers; on the other patients disclosing true pain may not be receiving appropriate medical care. Either way the imbalance leads to addiction being the number one cause of preventable illness and death in the United States and at the same time a chronic pain management burden which outweighs many common chronic care diseases including diabetes and heart disease combined. This CME program will give the provider effective strategies to comprehend, recognize, refer, and treat patients experiencing pain and/or addiction in both an inpatient and outpatient setting. Using multi-disciplinary strategies, providers will understand how to effectively executive a plan appropriate for care of patients needing pain management or addiction management services.
