Medical Detoxification:

Inpatient treatment is often necessary for a safe and successful medical withdrawal from alcohol, heroin, benzodiazepines and prescription pain medication. Detoxification is often the vital first step of the rehabilitative process. Patients requiring detoxification can do so in a safe environment staffed with trained, competent and caring professionals. The time period for detoxification is usually 4-5 days but can be up to 8 days. To accommodate patients in need of detox who have ambulating issues or other medical comorbidities, Bergen New Bridge has expanded its detox program to accommodate higher acuity patients.

Residential Treatment:

Patients who require more intensive treatment will find the structure and programming in our 24 hour a day inpatient programs to be “just what the doctor ordered”. Bergen New Bridge residential inpatient programs have a history of providing effective treatment.

Partial Hospital Program (PHP):

Patients who require more intensive outpatient treatment, which includes daily medical/psychiatric and nursing attention are best treated in the PHP, which meets daily Monday-Friday, five hours a day. The goal of outpatient treatment is to provide support, structure and therapy while allowing you to remain on your journey toward self-mastery and live at home and in your community.

Research has verified three essential elements that support recovery for a loved one and his or her commitment to abstinence:

*Aggressive intervention

*Family participation

*Sustained community support-involvement with a 12 Step Recovery Program.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP):

Not every chemically-dependent patient requires inpatient or residential treatment. Many have been successfully launched into recovery through an effective outpatient treatment program. The Evergreen IOP Program creates an ideal opportunity for you to begin the road to recovery within your own community and family.

The IOP offers day and evening tracks in which you meet for a minimum of 3 hours per day 3 times per week. The treatment team, which  includes you, your counselors and a psychiatrist, when needed will meet to develop an individualized treatment plan to help therapeutically address your specific needs and to provide an appropriate set of interventions.

Teen T.H.R.I.V.E.:

The Evergreen program also offers substance abuse treatment for adolescents. Known as Teen T.H.R.I.V.E., the program encompasses multiple levels of care beginning with early intervention, intensive outpatient as well as an aftercare component. Teen T.H.R.I.V.E. is also co-occurring licensed by the Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services.

Teen T.H.R.I.V.E. is committed to family involvement; as well as maintaining consistent collaborative communication between all community agencies and treatment in order to foster a positive recovery process.

The Evergreen Substance Abuse Treatment Program at Bergen Bridge Medical Center provides comprehensive substance abuse treatment to more than 15,000 people annually. Evergreen’s full range of services includes inpatient detoxification, residential treatment, partial hospital programming and intensive outpatient programming.

Evergreen is designed to meet the needs of persons over the age of 18 who are suffering from the disease of addiction to drugs and/or alcohol. The Bergen New Bridge Medical Center Access Center will assess your needs and direct your admission to the level of care that will provide the most appropriate treatment for you.

A family support group meets on Thursdays in the auditorium from 6:00pm-7:30pm to help family members understand substance use disorders and to learn effective way to deal and cope with their loved one’s addiction and recovery.

About jwatrel

I am a free-lance writer and Blogger. I am the author of the book "Firehouse 101" (IUniverse.com 2005) part of trilogy of books centered in New York City. My next book "Love Triangles" is finished being edited and should be ready for release in the Fall. My latest book, "Dinner at Midnight", a thriller is on its last chapter. My long awaited book explains the loss of the 2004 Yankee game to Boston. I work as a Consultant, Adjunct College Professor, Volunteer Fireman and Ambulance member and Blogger. I have a blog site for caregivers called 'bergencountycaregiver', a step by step survival guide to all you wonderful folks taking care of your loved ones, a walking project to walk every block, both sides, of the island of Manhattan "MywalkinManhattan" and discuss what I see and find on the streets of New York and three sites to accompany it. One is an arts site called "Visiting a Museum", where I showcase small museums, historical sites and parks that are off the beaten track both in Manhattan and outside the city to cross reference with "MywalkinManhattan" blog site. Another is "DiningonaShoeStringNYC", featuring small restaurants I have found on my travels in this project, that offer wonderful meals for $10.00 and under. So be on the lookout for updates on all three sites and enjoy 'MywalkinManhattan'. The third is my latest site, "LittleShoponMainStreet", which showcases all the unique and independent shops that I have found on my travels throughout and around Manhattan. I have started two new blog sites for the fire department, one "EngineOneHasbrouck HeightsFireDepartmentnj" for the Hasbrouck Heights Fire Department to discuss what our Engine Company is doing and the other is "BergenCountyFireman'sHomeAssociation" for the Bergen County Fireman's Association, which fire fighters from Bergen County, NJ, go to the Fireman's Home in Boonton, NJ to bring entertainment and cheer to our fellow brother fire fighters quarterly.
