Located in Northern Maryland (2 hours from Central NJ and 3 hours from NYC), this private, non-profit program has been open for over 30 years and provides detoxification and residential services. They are situated on a beautiful setting and have a dedicated staff. It’s the kind of place where workers tend to stay for decades. They work with most insurance companies and they scholarship a number of people, including a significant number of veterans.
The Caron Foundation is is located in central Pennsylvania. They have a wonderful facility and highly educated staff. While they take insurance, it is a very expensive program and usually requires money on top of the insurance (usually in the form up an upfront, lump-sum payment). I have sent a number of clients there. Most significantly, a large number of my students went through the program before coming to Rutgers, and I am happy to report that it clearly served them well. They take adolescents and adults.
