The Center for Network Therapy is a detox program that incorporates a therapeutic recovery track alongside medication-assisted treatment. Opened in Middlesex in early 2015, CNT is New Jersey’s first outpatient detox. A two step program of varying intensities includes therapy, family and dual-diagnosis support.
All clients are admitted within a 24-hour period and introduced to the treatment process with the facility and clinical staff working directly with other treatment programs and hospitals in the area allowing clients to transition to primary care when treatment concludes. All therapeutic methods are evidence based.
Treatment and Staff
Prior to admission, all potential clients must meet with an intake coordinator and submit to a bio-psycho-social assessment. CNT accepts individuals with acute withdrawal symptoms as well as clients with co-occurring disorders. All medications must be properly prescribed and managed before a client begins Suboxone treatment.
All of CNT’s detox attendees return home at night and are transported by family or the facility’s transportation system. All programming follows an individualized treatment plan developed by client and their counselor.
The Medically Monitored Ambulatory Detox (MMAD) program is the first step in recovery. Average length of stay is three to five days with the client attending therapeutic activities for nine to 10 hours each day with three meals served. Clients attend two group therapy sessions as well as one 12-step group every evening. Groups are facilitated by CADCs and focus on techniques for well-being. Individual therapy is available everyday with their assigned counselor. Clients are monitored by a team of physicians and nurses all certified by ASAM.
The Partial Care Program, similar to a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), is the next step for clients who have completed the MMAD program. Each week, clients attend 20 hours of therapeutic activities and programming that focuses on relapse prevention and preparation for primary treatment. Client’s medication is closely monitored by the clinical staff. Individuals attend daily group and individual therapy that utilizes evidence-based treatment techniques including the Matrix Model, CBT and DBT methodology. In addition, counselors work to uplift and motivate their clients through Motivational Interviewing (MI) and Motivational Enhancement therapy (MET). Daily on-site AA/NA meetings are facilitated and attendance is a requirement.
All clients are drug tested regularly to ensure they maintain abstinence during their treatment. During their stay, clients may have their cellphones and laptops to remain connected to their family and friends. WiFi is available on the property for clients to utilize during breaks and meals. When a client is ready for discharge, they have pre-arranged transfer to outpatient programming to continue their recovery journey.
CNT offers a family program and support groups to support loved ones through the recovery process. Once per week, a family group is facilitated allowing families to strengthen their support recovery skills at home and to understand the recovery process. Families are encouraged to attend Alanon and Naranon for additional assistance.
The Center for Network Therapy offers an enhanced detox program that incorporates elements of traditional outpatient care including group, individual and family therapy. All programs are focused on more than just the physical detox process, but beginning the recovery journey. While most clients are introduced to medically-assisted treatment, CNT also offers detox programs from addiction medications. Clinical and medical staff work diligently to create a safety net for clients to feel comfortable and safe during treatment and to leave the facility with arrangements to continue their recovery journey after detox.
