Addiction Medicine Fellowship

Caron Treatment Centers and the Reading Hospital provide a unique and comprehensive training opportunity.

Addiction is a serious disease, requiring specialized treatment. Caron Treatment Centers and Reading Hospital are committed to educating the next generation of Addiction Medicine experts through a Fellowship Program, certified by the Addiction Medicine Foundation and the American Board of Medical Specialties (AMBS).

ABMS began recognizing Addiction Medicine as a specialty in October 2015 and considers an Addiction Medicine Fellowship as the “gold standard” in physician credentialing, assuring patients that their physician meets the highest standards of practice and clinical knowledge, and has completed an approved educational program and process.

Our fellows undergo rigorous, advanced training, utilizing the most innovative evidence-based treatment modalities and therapies. Our fellows learn in a multidisciplinary, multi-modal and multi-phasic setting from world-class physician experts who are regarded as leaders in the field, and are regularly called upon by government, educational, medical and industry organizations to provide expert insight into addiction related topics.

The partnership of Caron Treatment Centers and the Reading Hospital provides a unique and comprehensive fellowship program that combines the services of a renowned behavioral health provider with a 60-year history of specializing in substance use and co-occurring disorders and a nationally recognized training hospital that received Pennsylvania’s prestigious Centers of Excellence Award.
