Newark Renaissance House was founded in 1975 in Newark, New Jersey as a drug-free residential community. Though it still provides residential treatment programs for addiction and co-occurring disorders, the organization has expanded to also offer comprehensive outpatient services to boys and girls between the ages of 14 and 18.
Treatment and Staff
After an initial assessment, clients looking for outpatient treatment are enrolled in an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), day treatment track or basic outpatient.
IOP is the most intensive and offers treatment for both addiction and psychological issues. The program relies on 12-step recovery and clients are expected to work through all steps during treatment. Medication management is also available. Day treatment meets Monday through Friday from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm, with a schedule of counseling and classroom time. Standard outpatient is more flexible, running Monday through Friday from 4 to 7 pm. There’s also a separate IOP for women with children up to five years old. The adolescent programs incorporate all the same services as the adult tracks.
All programs utilize a psychotherapy approach combining individual and group therapy. Counseling for codependency as well as educational sessions, vocational skill building, parenting classes and nutritional counseling are also part of the schedule. As clients progress through treatment, relapse prevention classes are worked into their schedules. Though each track is individualized, the programs generally lasts between three and six months.
The staff consists of CADCs, Licensed Addiction Counselors (LACs), RNs and Master’s-level counselors.
The residential programs are for boys between the ages of 14 and 18, and women with children. Additionally, a “Nip it in the Bud” track provides a nursery program for children whose mothers are in treatment. The facility also offers the “Boarder Babies” perinatal program, a state-sponsored service that has case managers work with addicted pregnant women to find permanent housing solutions.
Newark Renaissance House has residential and outpatient programs for adolescents and families in the Newark community. Treatment is based on the 12-step philosophy but also emphasizes ancillary services to get families back on their feet. For those who qualify, Newark Renaissance House is definitely worth considering.
