The Genesis Counseling Centers of Southern New Jersey were established in 1979 with locations in Camden, Marlton and Collingswood. As a non-profit substance abuse and mental health facility, Genesis Counseling Centers provides individualized care through individual and group therapy for men and women using evidence-based practices.
Treatment and Staff
Before treatment begins, each client attends an in-person, 90 minute initial assessment with an intake therapist to determine the frequency and length of treatment. Genesis offers both group and individual therapy with clients typically attending one of each session per week for an hour per session. Still, because each program is tailored to the individual’s needs, treatment can sometimes consist of more of one type of therapy than the other. There are both day and evening sessions available and all groups are co-ed. Smaller group sessions tend to take place in the morning with fewer than 10 clients at a time while larger groups are in the evenings with up to 15 people per session.
Genesis Counseling Center provides evidence-based therapy using CBT, DBT, EMDR and Motivational Interviewing (MI) techniques. There are also holistic methods available including guided meditation and coping skills for stress. A focus on anger management, relapse prevention and parenting skills are frequently covered in group therapy sessions as well. The facility employs over 50 counselors that are Master’s-level therapists with accreditation including LCSWs, LPCs, LADCs and CADCs.
Genesis Counseling Center also offers specialized programs in addition to substance abuse including adolescent mental health, bullying, gambling and domestic violence programs. There are also couples counseling and family therapy services available.
The goal-oriented, structured programs offered at Genesis Counseling Center provide treatment and support for those suffering from addiction and mental health issues. The facility has a large staff who use evidence-based practices to help clients recover, with a range of special programs available as well. While more intensive programs are not available, those in need of basic outpatient care would do well by considering Genesis Counseling Center.
