Substance Abuse Services
Substance abuse is a rising epidemic in our nation with many individuals affected in some way by the disease of addiction. This is a disease that knows no age, race, gender, or socioeconomic status. While there is no cure for substance abuse, there are a variety of treatments that can put individuals on the right track.
Our Substance Abuse Treatment Services were created to treat not just the individual, but also the family. Whether it is an adult or adolescent struggling with addiction, we take similar approaches to getting them clean and sober. Family involvement is strongly encouraged at “sober social” activities. We provide substance abuse assessment, education, and treatment in an outpatient setting, and individual family sessions as needed.
At CFS, we think a strong relationship between a mother and her baby is essential for the success of the child, and when a mother struggles with addiction, she not only puts her life in danger but also her child’s life in danger. Our continuum of care treats women in an intensive outpatient setting providing on-site childcare, transportation, parenting groups, trauma groups, and case management. Our ultimate goal is to help mothers achieve recovery while at the same time building a sustainable relationship with their child.
Our recovery services include a special focus on some of the most needy and underserved populations in southern New Jersey. Those in the deaf and hard of hearing community facing addiction had long struggled with communicating their needs and in turn, had not been receiving the proper treatment. CFS provides the only substance abuse treatment program in New Jersey dedicated to providing services for the deaf community.
We believe recovery is possible and our skilled counselors are dedicated to helping individuals achieve recovery.
