Alpha Center for Divorce Mediation Opens New Office in Allentown

Opening Expands Center's Presence in Pennsylvania

DOYLESTOWN, Penn., March 16, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- Alpha Center for Divorce Mediation today announced the opening of a new office in Allentown, PA, further expanding its presence in Pennsylvania and along the Eastern Coast. Alpha Center will be hosting an Open House Brunch Wednesday, March 22, 10:00 am to 1:30 pm at the Mill Run Office Center, 1275 Glenlivet Drive, Suite 100, Allentown, PA 18196. Contact Alpha Center at (800) 310-9085 or email if you wish to attend and learn more about Alpha Center's services. Media is welcome.

Alpha Center offers couples access to attorneys, child psychologists and accountants who work together to aid them in making educated decisions and navigate them through the legal requirements during the divorce process. Alpha Center focuses on children's needs, by using therapists to help parents understand their children's fears and guide them in reducing the impact of separation and divorce during and after their transition. Couples who choose Alpha Center will pay a fraction of the legal fees paid by those who choose litigating attorneys and can complete the process within six to eight months as opposed to two plus years in litigation.

Alpha Center is dedicated to educating the community by providing educational workshops on important issues such as parenting, financial restructuring and new relationships. Additionally, the Alpha Center designed Act 48 seminars to aid educators and therapists in recognizing a child's stresses during a separation or divorce.

Corporations are also profiting through Alpha Center's Employee Assistance Program benefit package.

In 1995, researchers for U.S. Health determined marital conflict costs our economy $7 billion every year. Marital strife decreases employees' productivity due to absenteeism and higher stress levels, which significantly increase employees' healthcare needs. This drastically increases a company's overall cost of providing benefits. Alpha Center's corporate benefit package reduces those costs and assists employees in maintaining a strong work-life balance.

"Alpha Center has turned the concept of divorce and litigation 180 degrees on its head," said Keila M. Gilbert, President/CEO. "The establishment of our office in Allentown shows our commitment to providing a healthier alternative for all divorcing couples."
