Evergreen Substance Abuse Treatment Center provides several comprehensive chemical dependency and substance abuse treatment programs in Paramus, New Jersey. Evergreen is an arm of Bergen Regional Medical Center, a large hospital complex offering acute and ambulatory care, long-term care and behavioral health services to the residents of Northern New Jersey.
Evergreen offers an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), a three-week residential treatment program and a short-term detox facility (four to eight days) with fifty beds. Evergreen’s mission is to make accessible individualized programming that utilizes the evidence based methods of individual and group therapies, psychoeducation and the 12-step model of recovery to all in need regardless of their economic circumstances.
Treatment and Staff
The mission of Evergreen’s IOP and PHP is “to provide support, structure and therapy that will allow patients to remain on their journey toward self-mastery while living at home and in their community.”
The PHP treats those who would benefit from more medical and mental health supervision on their road to recovery. Clients of the PHP meet five days a week for five hours of treatment each day, usually from 9 am to 3 pm. Clients generally stay in the program three to four months and receive a combination of group and individual therapy, education classes and daily on-site 12-step meetings. The PHP offers dual-diagnosis support and clients have access to psychiatrists and psychiatric nurses for medication management. Therapy groups usually contain eight to 12 clients and some may choose to step down into the IOP after successful treatment in the PHP.
Clients in the IOP attend sessions three days a week for three hours primarily in the form of group therapy and 12-step meetings; individual therapy and support for co-occurring disorders is limited to the PHP. Groups are slightly larger than in the PHP—usually numbering 15 to 20 participants. Clients often stay in the IOP longer than the PHP, usually stepping down after six to 12 months of successful treatment.
Evergreen Substance Abuse Treatment Center hosts Teen Track, an outpatient program for teens recovering from substance abuse that meets twice a week. It also offers Suboxone and Vivitrol prescriptions and support groups. The facility has a medication program for senior citizens in which a senior’s daily functions and memory are monitored for ways they may be negatively impacted by their prescribed medications.
Evergreen Substance Abuse Treatment Center at Bergen Regional Medical Center’s programs provide care for every patient on the recovery continuum and its Charity Care department ensures that no patient is turned away for inability to pay for treatment. As a facility that also provides long-term medical care and psychiatric programs, clients can be assured that staff has considerable experience supporting those with co-occurring disorders and handling the medical components of addiction treatment.
