Alcohol & Chemical Dependency Services

Saint Clare's Behavioral Health Services has helped thousands of people, from all walks of life, break free from alcohol and chemical dependency and codependency and start on the road to a sober and healthier life. Our programs include:

Inpatient: Alcohol and Chemical Dependency Unit (ACDU)

The Alcohol and Chemical Dependency Unit is an inpatient unit that offers medical detoxification services to individuals addicted to Opioids, Alcohol and Benzodiazepines.  The Alcohol and Chemical Dependency Unit provides assessment, consultation and treatment 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

For more information on the Alcohol and Chemical Dependency Unit, please call the Behavioral Health Access Center at 1-888-626-2111 between the hours of 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.  After 6:30 p.m., please call the unit directly at 973-316-1888.

Outpatient: Alcohol and Chemical Dependency Services (ACDS)

Alcohol and Chemical Dependency Services at Saint Clare's offers a range of outpatient substance abuse services ranging from intensive outpatient services to relapse prevention programs. We offer both individual and group counseling. The core services of the program include motivational enhancement counseling, family counseling, psycho-education groups and introduction to a 12-step recovery process. Programs and levels of care offered include:

Medical Detoxification Services (ASAM Level III.7D)
Medically Detoxification Services provide a planned regimen of 24-hour, medically-directed evaluation, care and treatment for substance and mental health related disorders, in an inpatient setting. These individuals are at a high risk of withdrawal and require medical management to avoid the potentially hazardous consequences of discontinued use of alcohol and other drugs. Patients at this level of care are assessed to require primary biomedical psychiatric and nursing care.

Intensive Outpatient Program (ASAM Level II.1)
The Intensive Outpatient Program provides intensive services (3 days a week for 3 hours a day). The program is based on assessment, group therapy, psycho-educational groups, treatment planning, individual counseling and urine toxicological screening. Generally, individuals require more intense treatment initially, followed by progressively less intense treatment.
