A New Community with Tailored Drug and Alcohol Addiction Substance Abuse Treatment
Reintegration into mainstream society and a connection to the community are an aspect of addiction treatment. It is critical to get a thorough exposure to weekly 12-step meetings in the New Brunswick area. This is the moment the change transformation begins. Clients are able to build new connections with healthy young adults. They will break free from the unhealthy habits of addiction they have known previous to their arrival. Individuals are then able to build a new routine and a pattern of healthy decisions. This will be done by working with their primary therapist in addition to their case manager to assure all their needs are being met.

Phase I: We Suit Up, We Show up
PHASE I: Resources and Drug Rehabilitation Treatment
In Phase I, our primary focus upon arrival is welcoming every new member. We help them recognize the safe, nurturing environment we have established in order to help them open up. Individuals begin to take a look at reality and begin to deal with it head on with professional support. As each new resident begins to assimilate into our community, we begin to fill the void of a life without purpose. We address the underlying problems which have crippled their success for a healthy, meaningful and bright future.

Clients are assessed upon arrival for their immediate and long term needs during their time at SOBA College Recovery drug rehabs New Jersey. The process begins with a clinical interview to assess the history and current needs to be addressed. This will be standing weekly individual therapy sessions lifting addiction off your shoulders.
