My name is Devin Reaves and I am a Social Worker, specializing in behavioral health disorders and recovery, with over ten years of experience and training. I have my Masters in Social Work from the University of Pennsylvania and have extensive experience in the behavioral health field with understanding of inpatient, outpatient, and community mental health service provisions. I am well versed in working with individuals and families that are navigating the systematic and interpersonal crises that occurs concurrently with drug addiction and mental health diagnosis.
I invite you to look through my website and reach out to me if I can be of service. Please contact me if you or a love one is experiencing a mental health or addiction related crisis. I can help you cut through the red tape of dealing with insurance companies and make sure you and those close to you get the help that is needed and deserved.
Over the past seven years I have helped hundreds of families get their loved ones into long term recovery. I know that entering long-term recovery can be a path filled with many hurdles because I have walked down that path. I entered recovery in 2007 and have not looked back. I will use my personal and professional experience to make sure you and those close to you have every chance to succeed. Call me to find out what the best next step is whether it is an intervention, detoxification, or residential treatment. I can connect you with the premier professionals in this field.
I have worked with and have interest in the Philadelphia Department of Behavioral Health & Intellectual disAbility Services, developing strategic plans for non-profit organizations, and helped establish Collegiate Recovery Programs. I advocate for recovery in all its phases-changes in public policy, funding for non-profit programs and raising community awareness. I am always looking for partners for advocacy so please contact me if you want to be a social change agent in your community.
