Treatment Services 

What treatment programs are offered?

Our recovery center offers a variety of treatment programs for all kinds of addictions. Addiction treatment ranges from high levels of care such as residential treatment to outpatient programs where the recovering individual gets to reside at home during treatment. Each program is individually decided upon depending on the severity of the addiction amongst other factors. 

You’ll be able to find addiction treatment programs at our recovery center, such as:

  • Drug and Alcohol Detoxification
  • Inpatient Rehabilitation 
  • Partial Hospitalization Programs
  • Outpatient Standard Programs
  • Intensive Outpatient Programs
  • Aftercare Planning/Continuum Care
  • Treatment for Professionals
  • Dual-Diagnosis
  • Mental Health Treatment

Do most patients receive the same kind of treatment?

We believe in tailoring our treatment for each unique patient. Each addiction treatment plan will be based on the recovering individual’s schedule and circumstances. We’ll do a thorough review of each member beforehand to determine the type of treatment plan that is best for long-term recovery success and sobriety. 

What is aftercare planning?

Aftercare planning is the process we go through when assessing each recovering individual’s post-treatment plan. Preventing relapse and ensuring a successful recovery is the focal point of aftercare planning. These types of programs can include continued group therapy or individual counseling sessions at our recovery center. 

In other cases, we may recommend a step-down program, such as outpatient treatment. Our goal is to give you the tools you need for a fulfilling, sober life. We’ll make sure to work with you to create the most effective aftercare plan. 

Does North Jersey Recovery Center only treat addiction or are mental-health services also provided?

Mental health disorders are not only addressed, but they are also a major focus in most treatment plans. Dual diagnosis serves as a key component of addiction recovery. Dual diagnosis, also known as co-occurring disorders, refers to the presence of a mental health disorder and addiction at the same time. 

This kind of treatment calls for a focus on evidence-based therapy such as cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavioral therapy. 

We also provide other treatment services to target co-occurring disorders, such as:

  • Individual therapy
  • Group therapy
  • Relapse prevention techniques
  • Social skills building

Is holistic care a part of addiction treatment?

Holistic care is another component of addiction treatment that has many benefits. Treating addiction means treating the recovering individual as a whole. Holistic care factors in a person’s well-being on physical, mental, and emotional levels. It also includes developing one’s spirituality.

Members of our recovery center will be able to experience the many benefits of holistic care. These therapies encourage a calm state of mind and can help alleviate withdrawal symptoms. A handful of our holistic care options include:

  • Chiropractic support
  • Massage therapy
  • Yoga
  • Mindfulness meditation
  • Acupuncture

Will my treatment remain confidential?

Absolutely. We will never share any information regarding your treatment or identity. 

Is it possible to enroll in treatment while taking care of a child, attending school, or going to work?

Yes! That’s where outpatient treatment programs come in. There are three core types of outpatient treatment: standard, intensive outpatient, and partial hospitalization programs. We offer outpatient rehabilitation to recovering individuals with serious responsibilities outside of treatment. 

No matter how busy your schedule is, we’ll work around it to create a treatment plan that works for you. You can check out some more information about our standard outpatient programs here.

The exact cost of treatment will also be dependent upon your insurance coverage. 

How do I know if I’m covered by insurance?

We encourage you to give us a call to find out exactly what your insurance covers. Each insurance plan will have its unique benefits.
