A History of Excellence in Addiction Treatment

Malvern Institute’s story began in Philadelphia in the 1940s. Alcoholics Anonymous recently entered the public eye and there was hope for the first time, of a real solution for alcoholism and addiction.
Enter Dr. C Dudley Saul, a local Philadelphia doctor who became convinced that AA could change the world. He began working tirelessly to help them succeed. In fact, Dr. Saul was instrumental in starting and growing Philadelphia’s first AA group.

Malvern’s Beginnings

One of Philadelphia AA’s earliest supporters was Dr. Saul, who believed a 12-step program could benefit recovering alcoholics. In 1946, Saul and Dr. C. Nelson Davis opened the C. Dudley Saul Clinic at St. Luke’s Hospital in Philadelphia. This was the first private alcoholic treatment center in the United States. In 1948, Saul and Davis moved the Saul Clinic from Philadelphia to Malvern and renamed it the Malvern Institute.

Malvern’s Growth & Expansion

In the 1980s, the Malvern campus expanded at King Road and doubled its treatment space to focus on providing the most innovative and effective substance abuse care in the country. Malvern has grown to include two residential detoxification and treatment facilities in Malvern and Willow Grove. Malvern also has outpatient facilities in Berwyn, Bethlehem, Pottstown and Trevose.

Under a Complete Evidence-Based Treatment Program

Today we provide an evidence-based, complete continuum of care for those affected by the disease of addiction. Under the Malvern umbrella, we operate two inpatient detox and rehabilitation centers, as well as multiple outpatient locations in the Delaware Valley.
