Vantage Health System Addiction Program is one of the many programs offered by Vantage Health Systems, a non-profit organization founded in 1957 to provide health and wellness services to the Bergen County community. VHS offers services from two locations in New Jersey—one in Dumont and the other in Englewood. The addictions program offered by VHS is outpatient with credentialed staff using evidence-based methods of treatment.
Treatment and Staff
The basic outpatient track at VHS is ideal for those who wish to maintain a regular life, family and work schedule while still participating in treatment. The program also incorporates family therapy as VHS endorses the belief that addiction is a family disease that adversely affects the lives of those closest to addict.
Treatment begins with an initial evaluation and assessment to determine an individualized treatment plan. Each track lays out the appropriate frequency of weekly treatment for each client. All programs combine individual and group counseling, family therapy, couples counseling, addiction education and either a prevention or relapse prevention group.
The various therapies employed are based in CBT methodology and one-on-one sessions can be scheduled at any time throughout the week. Referrals to other treatment programs—including detox, residential and Medication-Assisted Therapy (MAT) programs can also be made as can referrals to local 12-step meetings. Urine screenings can also be included in the program if deemed necessary.
In addition to the outpatient program, VHS also offers a variety of other services including housing, geriatric services, support groups, workplace programs, community education and enrichment programs and volunteer opportunities.
Addiction treatment at Vantage Health Systems is a basic outpatient program for those wishing to maintain a regular schedule while recovering or for those who wish to include their family in their treatment for substance abuse. While clients requiring an intensive treatment program may find services limited, through evidence-based practices and individualized treatment plans, clients are given a solid foundation for recovery and sobriety.
