Gaudenzia was founded in 1968 by a group of distinguished business, political, community leaders and people in recovery.

Recognizing that a growing number of individuals suffering from alcohol and drug abuse were unable to find help, a residential treatment program was established to put people on the path to recovery.

From very humble beginnings in a single facility, Gaudenzia has grown to 151 programs at 82 facilities throughout Pennsylvania, Maryland and Delaware. Now admitting into treatment about 20,000 clients annually, Gaudenzia offers comprehensive substance use disorder treatment and recovery services. We serve adolescents, pregnant/parenting women, co-occurring individuals (mentally ill and substance abusing), HIV/AIDS symptomatic individuals and homeless individuals.

Since 1986, ACCESS EAP, has been recognized for providing high-quality Employee Assistance/Peer Support Programs. Our reputation for ethical service and our commitment to putting people first has enabled us to grow without advertising or direct marketing. Our clients have ranged from corporations with over 1,000 employees to not-for-profits with less than 20 staff. ACCESS EAP strives to provide clients and their loved ones with the help they need to lead happier and more productive lives. At the same time, our goal is to provide managers with the skills they need to handle complicated workplace issues. Whether assisting a manager or helping an employee, we always “take the extra step” to guarantee full satisfaction.

In 2014, ACCESS EAP applied for a substance abuse education reduction fund grant through the PCCD with two main goals in mind.

To educate employers and employees about the dangers of substance abuse in the workplace


To educate working parents so that they could ensure their children were educated and drug free.
