Substance Abuse Outpatient Treatment Program
The First Phase our outpatient treatment program is a partial care level which consists of 5 group sessions per day, 5 days a week for a total of 25 hours. Clients will meet with their primary drug rehabilitation therapist individually once a week during this phase of the outpatient treatment program as well as receiving one individual session per week with their case manager. This Phase is approximately 30-45 days based on the clinical needs of the individual.
The Second Phase is an integral part of the step-down process which provides continued support and structure. It consists of 3 group sessions per day, 4 to 5 days a week for a total of 14 to 17 hours. During phase two, Clients meet with their primary addiction treatment therapist individually once a week and receive one individual session per week with their case manager. This Phase will typically start after 30 days of treatment and last 30 to 60 days.
The Third Phase is an intensive outpatient treatment program level which consists of 3 group sessions per day, 3 days a week for a total of 9 hours. Clients will meet with their primary therapist individually once a week during this phase of the program, and still continue to receive one individual session per week with their case manager. This last Phase will typically start after 90 days of treatment and will continue for the remainder of the client’s treatment. We have found the starting of phase 3 to be the best time frame to start reintegrating back into work, school or a combination of both.
Customized Individual Outpatient Treatment Program for Addiction
Almost any drug rehabs New Jersey program will claim to tailor an outpatient treatment program to the specific needs of the individual client through both group and one-on-one counseling. Yet, traditionally, all clients are made to attend the same groups, some of which are not relevant to their specific needs. SOBA College Recovery goes above and beyond to ensure that the unique needs of each individual are addressed through specialized group treatment plans. Treatment for all clients will consist of nine to twenty one-hour group therapy sessions per week. Upon intake, licensed clinicians will assess which of the groups currently offered are most relevant to the individual. They will then determine a personalized group therapy plan that will provide the client with the most effective treatment possible. This groundbreaking approach is unique to our program and will have a profound, positive impact on our clients’ success.
Drug Rehabilitation Assessment & Evaluation Of Co-occurring Disorders
Substance use disorders can present in complex ways. It is often difficult for mental health professionals to tease out co-occurring mental health conditions, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), an eating disorder, bipolar disorder, depression, and borderline personality disorder. As a result, there is a great deal of misdiagnosis and over-medicating of individuals with substance use disorders. At SOBA College Recovery, our staff consists exclusively of clinicians that are dually licensed in mental health and substance use disorders, and psychiatrists that are certified by the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM). Upon admission and thereafter all clients will be re-assessed for co-occurring mental health conditions and our psychiatrists will collaborate with clinicians to develop individualized treatment plans.

Outpatient Treatment Program Provides Syllabus Management
At SOBA College Recovery outpatient drug rehab New Jersey, we have each of our clients meet with our syllabus management team to provide academic support. When the client arrives, they work with a counselor to plan out their class schedules, exam dates, and assignments. From there, the client will continue to meet with a member of our syllabus management team on a regular basis. We carefully review assignments before they are due and again after they are graded for every assignment. If clients excel, they will continue to have the support and structure until the end of the semester. Then it will become an optional amenity of our outpatient treatment program. At the earliest sign of academic problems, clients will be connected with the appropriate tutoring, writing centers, and other support services. We believe in empowering clients to eventually utilize support services and manage their academic workload independently, but also realize that guidance from our staff is necessary for this critical transition to greater independence.
Substance Abuse Treatment, Mental Health, and Learning Disabilities
SOBA College Recovery drug rehabs New Jersey center is the first treatment center in the country on a college campus to offer substance abuse, mental health, and learning disabilities services. Particular risk factors such as low self-esteem, short attention span, a high degree of frustration, and the desire to “fit in” may lead those with learning disabilities to be more susceptible to substance use and mental health issues. Therefore, we have staff with advanced degrees and college services for students with learning disabilities. With the client’s consent, we utilize their high school special education records including:
- educational (e.g. Woodcock-Johnson testing)
- psychological evaluations (e.g. Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale)
- speech and language assessments
- Individualized Education Plans (IEPs)
- Summary of Performances (SOPs)
We also review any previous college records as well as standardized tests. This information is used to then facilitate the necessary steps in order for the client to receive appropriate accommodations, such as extended time on exams in college. Our staff provides clients with guidance and support, tailored to their specific learning style and unique needs. We have groups based on academic success with a combination of support from our syllabus management team. Development of organizational, time management, and study skills are just some examples of group topics. We have found this to be a winning combination with our outpatient treatment program in New Jersey that works for our clients.
