With its multi-pronged approach to treatment, numerous medical resources and proven 35-year track record, Endeavor House North is a hopeful recovery resource. Acquired by the Pittsburgh based Pinnacle Treatment Centers in 2011, Endeavor House joined a medically-oriented addiction resource network that includes 20 facilities serving more than 7,500 adults each year.
Accommodations and Food
Endeavor House technically has five locations throughout New Jersey but the primary inpatient residences that officially bear its name are in the towns of Kearny (Endeavor House North) and Keyport (Endeavor House South). The Kearny location is the larger residency and can house up to 40 clients while Keyport only has room for 20. Clients share rooms with bunk beds; linens and towels are provided but clients are instructed to bring their own detergent. There are also a few group meeting rooms, a dining room and kitchen in each house. There is no gym or fitness center.
Menus are flexible and diverse. Chefs work closely with each client and their clinician to meet any dietary requirements such as gluten free or vegetarian. Whole foods and healthy options are in the rotation but outside food and drink are not permitted. Clients are also not allowed to bring have any personal electronics like cellphones, laptops and cameras. Approved reading material is restricted to that of the 12-step or spiritual persuasion.
Treatment and Staff
Treatment begins with a medically-supervised detox, if necessary, which usually lasts for seven to 10 days. This can include Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) for opiate addiction, utilizing Suboxone and Vivitrol.
Clients attend individual therapy multiple times a week, as well as group therapy aimed at addressing the emotional aspects of getting sober. Alternative modalities are also offered, including art and music therapy. Residents attend relapse prevention groups and begin building their recovery foundation through a 12-step program, either through AA or NA.
Perhaps most important aspect of treatment at Endeavor House is the family program. They host a “Multi-Family Group” at each location once a week where family members and friends can learn more about the disease of addiction, 12-step philosophy and the red flags for relapse.
The staff is not short on medical professionals. There are several doctors on full-time staff as well as a team of registered nurses.
Endeavor House offers yoga, recreational activities, art and music therapy, as well as nutritional education.
With a treatment approach spanning from MAT to music therapy, Endeavor House is a place where you can find what you need to begin your recovery from substance abuse. A particularly good place for those struggling with opiate addiction who haven’t had success with abstinence-based treatment, Endeavor House comes equipped with a highly credentialed and well-informed staff who can help you build a solid foundation for long-term sobriety.
