Treatment and Staff
For those who have been arrested for a DUI, this facility offers a 16-week DUI program. Other services include an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), individual therapy and a family program. Evidence-based techniques such as CBT and DBT are used in both group and individual therapy. Detox is not available on site, but referrals to nearby facilities are made if necessary.
The IOP program requires participants to meet three times a week for two hours at a time where they participate in some combination of group therapy, individual therapy and educational lectures. Groups are offered at various days and times to accommodate clients’ varying schedules. Topics include relapse prevention, an introduction to the 12 steps, coping tools and life skills. During education time, clients are informed about the dangers of alcohol and drugs, as well as the addiction-as-a-disease concept. Group sizes usually range between 10 and 20 people and the cost for each session is $45.
Individual counseling is available to those who need one-on-one time with a substance abuse counselor. These sessions are usually one hour in length, allowing the client to explore their addictive behaviors. The cost for each session is $90.
Family therapy sessions are available for the client and their family members, allowing the family to work on communication, boundaries and trust. There are also educational groups for families that are designed to educate them about the nature of chemical dependency, how to deal with the recovery process, and codependency. Family therapy sessions cost $180 and each family education group costs $220.
The staff includes several certified substance abuse counselors.
The state-approved DUI program is offered two nights a week, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6 pm to 8 pm. The topics are similar to those discussed in IOP, except this program includes a victim-impact panel. During this presentation, those who were injured in DUI accidents or had loved ones killed or injured speak about the crash and how it has impacted their lives. The purpose of the program is to help DUI offenders realize the lasting and long-term effects of impaired driving and to prevent future offenses.
Jersey Shore University Medical Center offers an affordable, no frills addiction recovery program. Clients are guided through therapy and education as they work toward understanding their addictions. The involvement of family members can also help those in recovery to start off on the right foot.
