The Basics

Based in the NYC suburb of Somerset, New Jersey, Anew Wellness is a behavioral health organization that provides outpatient treatment for chemical dependency. Founded in 2014, it offers non-12-step based specialized addiction and dual diagnosis support for those struggling with mental health issues such as anxiety, depression and bipolar disorder. Its outpatient substance abuse programs include a Partial Day Program and an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP).

Treatment and Staff

Before beginning a program, clients undergo an initial assessment and intake process so that counselors may develop an individualized treatment plan for them. The Partial Day Treatment program is the most intensive and geared towards clients transitioning out of inpatient care. It meets five days a week, from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm, and includes two weekly individual sessions and daily process and psychoeducation groups and that focus on understanding addiction, self-care, distress tolerance, increasing motivation, recovery management, relaxation techniques and aftercare planning.

The IOP is a minimum of eight weeks long and meets on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6 to 9 pm. Clients are assigned a counselor and have one individual session a week in addition to groups, which cover a wide range of topics including dealing with cravings, anger management, relapse prevention, health and nutrition, life skills, codependency, building self-esteem, relationship and family education.

All outpatient programs include a combination of individual and group therapy that use evidence-based practices, such as CBTREBT and Motivational Interviewing (MI), as well as EMDR and psychoeducation.

Staff includes physicians, physician’s assistants, LMHCs and additional Master’s-level counselors.

Extras

Anew Wellness also employs some holistic treatment methods, like art therapy and mindfulness. Additionally, the first and third Tuesday of every month is family night, from 6 to 7:30 pm.

In Summary

Anew Wellness provides comprehensive treatment for a wide range of addictions. In addition to evidence-based practices and group discussions, clients can also take advantage of the holistic options for deeper healing. For those in the Tri-State area seeking addiction and behavioral health treatment beyond the 12 steps, Anew Wellness is a good match.

    If you are struggling with any level of mental illness, do not go to Anew Wellness. They seem to care but they do not. They are not good at counseling. They wait for you to figure out how to move through your struggles, they do not help you. Yes, they will have kind words but so do your friends and family. What you need are professionals and Anew does not have professionals. Please find somewhere else and get recommendations from a doctor. It is for your own good. I hate to think that people are wasting their time at Anew. Even the office staff/front desk is impossible to deal with. You will wait very long for appointments in the “waiting room” and your stress level and anxiety will just get worse. They DO NOT return calls, ever. Even if you tell them it is critical/crucial/time-sensitive. Tell them it’s about medication, they still won’t return your call. You are left having to go to the ER or Bridgeway PESS. One of the med managers will criticize you, accuse you of overdosing because you are out of medication (after a month). If you have a brain and want to be involved in your recovery, she will not like that. If you blindly take meds she prescribes, you will be ok but you may not get better. She will patronize you if you ask questions. She will confuse you with other patients and mess things up for you. Going to Anew is not worth the mental hassle. Stay away, there are many other options out there. I am sorry to say I stuck with the IOP program much too long. It was a good first step to recovery but there is no support afterwards and the first step should not take 3.5 months! They just don’t have your best interest in mind. I hope at least one person out there takes my honest and heartfelt advice.
