Located in Orange, New Jersey, Family Connections is a community-oriented non-profit that provides a wide range of outpatient services to adults, adolescents and children. The organization has a history dating back to 1879 as a result of a merger between the older Registry Society and the Family and Children’s Service Agency established in 1959. Treatment plans are available for those struggling with addiction, co-occurring disorders and other behavioral issues. Both court-ordered and self-referred clients are welcome to attend.

Treatment and Staff

Before beginning treatment, all clients go through an initial intake and assessment to help staff members develop their individualized treatment plans. While detox is not available on-site, referrals are available as necessary. Though the specifics may vary, treatment generally includes both individual and group therapy rooted in evidence-based practices, such as CBT and DBT. For those with co-occurring disorders, dual diagnosis support is integrated into the program and medication management is also available. Groups cover a range of topics including addiction education, relapse prevention and coping skills. Though 12-step participation is not strictly required, clients are encouraged to attend off-site meetings.

The staff at Family Connections consists of LCSWs, CADCs, LPCs, LMFTs, case managers and additional Master’s-level clinicians.


Aside from the above, the facility also provides family therapy and standalone counseling for mental health issues. Additional services include school-based programs, domestic violence counseling, youth outreach, case management, family reunification and bilingual support. Those in need of aftercare can also step down the intensity of their care and continue with therapy.

In Summary

Overall, Family Connections is a community-oriented organization that provides multi-faceted counseling services to clients of all ages. Treatment is evidence-based and includes dual diagnosis support with a range of ancillary services also offered. For those in the area seeking an affordable and flexible treatment program, Family Connections is worth considering.

  1. Stephanie Johnson on

    My name is Stephanie Johnson. I went to the South Harrison Wellness House(Family Connections), and I was displeased with my treatment there. I have depression, but I am still a high function person. Yet, I was constantly put into a category of low functioning patient. Besides the condescending attitudes that came from the staff there, I was constantly looked over in groups and was reminded each time I was there that my opinion doesn’t matter if it is different from others there. Patients or staff. Since I was not labeled manic, bipolar and or any other label THEY felt needed immediate attention, I was looked over repeated and given low priority in nearly every bit of treatment there. I’ve had to make my voice heard several times there. Yet when you do, there threaten to call ems on you, no matter how calm and patient you are. My particular problem came from the Case Manager(we’ll call her K. Jac). She was very condescending and spiteful when it came to me in particular. She would show favoritism towards some patients while others were shown complete and intention disregard. I have decided to go to another mental health organization because of this. I didn’t see the point of going to a place that would make me feel even worst. I am very displeased with this place.
