We provide inpatient detox and outpatient addiction treatment at our scenic 100 acre campus in Belle Mead, NJ. Our drug addiction treatment center in New Jersey is located adjacent to the Sourland Mountain nature preserve and features a barn, stable with horses where interaction with our many animals provides a unique healing environment.
Since opening in 1981, we have been recognized among the best addiction treatment centers in New Jersey and the county. As a not-for-profit organization and part of Hackensack Meridian Health, we are different from most addiction treatment centers. The care and success of our clients is our highest and only priority. Many treatment centers are for-profit entities, so they have investor and shareholder priorities influencing how they do business.
Your decision about where to seek care is as important as the decision to seek care and change your life.

Addiction self-help, as well as ongoing support, are integral and necessary in making a full recovery, which is why we also have specialists from both Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous, NJ, on-premise daily to give our patients the reinforcement they need for relapse prevention.
More than 17 million Americans have a substance abuse problem with alcohol. This means alcohol is one of the most commonly abused drugs in the U.S. Whether you drink to feel calmer, escape your problems, or sleep better at night, crossing the line from recreational to necessary drinking can be dangerous to your health and well-being.
Drug addiction is a life-altering phenomenon and a growing epidemic. Over 4 million people in the U.S. today are addicted to illegal drugs, the most common of which are cocaine, marijuana, methamphetamine, and heroin. Most of these drugs have an addictive effect after just a few uses.
Alcohol and Drug Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) at Blake Recovery Center™
What is addiction? Addiction is a biological, psychological, sociological, and spiritual disease which affects virtually every aspect of an abuser’s life. Consequences of addictive behaviors increase as disease progression continues. Those participating in our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) are properly educated about these aspects of addiction.
Dependency on any substance — including painkillers, antidepressants, and stimulants — involves altering the brain chemistry with a toxin to quickly produce temporary relief from frustration, grief, or pain, without changing the thoughts or behavior that cause these negative feelings. Prescription drug dependency is a treatable disease that can be held in remission through lifestyle change.
Blake Recovery Center™ in Belle Mead, an alcohol detox center in New Jersey, is known for our effective alcohol detox program designed specifically for those suffering from alcoholism. The detox process can take up to a week but varies based on the severity of addiction.
Drug addiction is a serious illness with no do-it-yourself solution. Blake Recovery Center™, one of the most widely trusted New Jersey detox centers, is run by behavioral health experts with specialized training and vast experience to help those addicted to cocaine, crack, heroin, as well as prescription and other drugs to become clean.
Blake Recovery Center™ Alumni and IOP Alumni The purpose of each Alumni program’s monthly meetings and special events is to support graduates in making the transition from treatment into recovering life by providing support, fellowship and encouragement.
Did you know that substance abuse and mental illness co-occur in up to half of all people experiencing either of these issues? Addiction can be a multifaceted disease, which results in the need for inpatient dual diagnosis treatment. Someone suffering from both alcohol or drug addiction and an emotional/psychiatric problem is said to have a dual diagnosis.
At Blake Recovery Center™, a recovery center for the chemically dependent, we believe that family intervention is essential in every patient’s recovery. That’s why we conduct educational and family group counseling sessions in our special weekend programs that focus on family interaction. Here the patient and his or her family members, whether a wife, husband, child, sister, brother, mother or father, are given the opportunity to understand addiction, communicate about their feelings, and start to heal in a safe, caring environment.
Blake Recovery Center™ is much more than a substance abuse detox and rehab center. Our residential rehabilitation program initiates the process of recovery from drug and alcohol addictions and encompasses a comprehensive treatment plan specific to the medical, emotional and social needs of each individual. Our proactive approach includes individual and group counseling, family intervention, addiction education, exercise, medical stabilization, and self-help support recovery via Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and/or Narcotics Anonymous (NA) meetings.
