Jersey Shore University Medical Center

Jersey Shore University Medical Center provides evidence-based assistance and therapy for adults for substance abuse and addiction in a convenient outpatient setting, including:

  • Adult Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) – The IOP meets in a group setting for three hours, three to four times a week. We offer different tracks that address both mental health and addiction issues simultaneously, using evidence-based treatments that include specialized components, early recovery skills, relapse prevention, family education and social support. Highly effective and clinically proven therapies are all integrated within the context of the twelve-step model of recovery and the wellness model for co-occurring recovery.
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy and the 12 Steps (DBT) – Group bases treatment that ties the DBT principles of mindfulness, distress tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness and emotional regulation to the 12-step recovery model in order to better assist individuals in coping with difficult emotions and preventing relapse.
  • Early Recovery Group (ERG) – The ERG provides weekly group treatment for individuals who have a mild substance use disorder that requires less intervention than IOP. Goals include education to prevent the substance abuse disorder from progressing into a more serious disease.
  • Relapse Prevention Groups (RPG) – The RPG assists with continued treatment in the early stages of recovery and is the aftercare program upon completion of IOP or a long-term inpatient residential treatment. RPG consists of weekly groups, where individuals receive support from their peers and work at their relapse prevention plans. Challenging problems are brought to the treatment process to prevent a return to dysfunctional thinking and behaviors.

Additional services provided with treatment include:

  • Case management
  • Individual sessions to supplement groups
  • Medication management
  • Psychiatric assessments
  • Urine alcohol/drug screens
