The Center's medical specialists in addiction medicine, toxicology, emergency medicine and emergency medical services, internal medicine, family medicine, and psychiatry provide interdisciplinary specialty care in the hospital, ambulatory, and community settings. The Center also has a robust interdisciplinary team of behavioral health providers, nurses, and patient navigators who offer wraparound services to patients in a biopsychosocial model, including helping them to address social determinants of health.

Patient services include but are not limited to:

  • Inpatient substance use disorder consultation
  • Outpatient substance use disorder consultation
  • Empowering Mothers to Parent and Overcome with Resilience (EMPOWR) for pregnant and parenting women
  • MAT FOR ALL (full coverage services for substance use disorder and mental health for uninsured and underinsured people including people experiencing undocumentation)

The Recovery Village Cherry Hill at Cooper is a 90-bed state-of-the-art inpatient addiction treatment facility offering all levels of substance use disorder care in an integrated model. The Center's physicians and advanced practitioners provide the medical care at this facility and help to drive quality, evidence-based care, and education in the inpatient addiction treatment care model.

Academically, the Center provides medical education at both the undergraduate and graduate levels and conducts an ACGME-accredited fellowship in addiction medicine. The Center for Healing is also recognized by the State of New Jersey as a MAT Center of Excellence.

The Center's work focuses on ensuring that all patients across the Cooper system who have pain, psychiatric illness, chemical dependence and/or substance use disorder receive state-of-the-art care and that the entire system works together to identify those at risk, mitigate risk exposure, and prevent the development of substance use disorder whenever possible. They do this through education, innovation, and dedication to providing excellent patient care services to the community.
