Customized treatment, supportive aftercare and family involvement make living an addiction-free life possible. Many people mistakenly believe that drug and alcohol addiction can be beaten on one’s own. Because drug and alcohol addiction is such a complex disease, those who try to achieve and maintain sobriety without help often succumb to triggers and cravings after a short time and return to using. Professional addiction treatment in New Jersey is the most effective way to combat addiction and substance abuse.

Our Values

INDIVIDUALITY

While one type of addiction therapy may be effective for one client, another will benefit from a different approach.

With this in mind, we make sure to treat each client individually. We look at the whole person and design a treatment plan that is tailored to his or her specific needs, navigating all areas of life that are imbalanced.

SPIRITUALITY

The road to spirituality is different for all. Our goal is to enable our clients to pave their own spiritual paths and allow that path to assist in their recovery and beyond.

While we do not promote any one specific religion, we do believe that spirituality can be helpful in the recovery process. The 12 Steps Program, one of the many methods we utilize at ATSI, incorporates this mindset and only asks that individuals believe in a “God of their understanding.”

FAMILY INVOLVEMENT

Families are strongly encouraged to play a large role in the recovery process. Our therapists keep families informed and involved in the planning process and treatment progress. We also offer family therapy sessions to allow both the client and his or her loved ones to work through any and all underlying issues in order to heal any dysfunction that may have taken over their relationships.

After completing treatment, we encourage family members to be supportive, encouraging, and present while integrating their loved ones back into their lives and communities.

COMPASSION

Our staff members are here to guide individuals through the entire recovery process with compassion and respect. From the first call with our admissions department to the time they complete our program, clients receive a true continuum of care. And since treatment doesn’t end upon completion, our aftercare support program ensures each individual has the tools and emotional support needed to remain clean, sober, and empowered to avoid relapse.

Our Philosophy

MOTIVATIONAL INTERVIEWING

The therapeutic models utilized at ATSI are evidence-based, meaning they are based on data and information that has been scientifically tested and demonstrated. Here, evidence-based treatment is led by a team of professionals who apply their years of experience with what we continue to learn in the addiction, treatment and recovery fields. With a staff that is constantly advancing, we are able to consistently improve our practices and ensure better care for our patients.
