Jennifer Hansen
CEO

My addiction took me to places I never imagined. I lived on the streets with a $300-a-day heroin habit. With dark circles under my eyes and track marks along my arms, I felt dead; my soul was gone. At the time, life seemed hopeless. After several attempts at rehabilitation, I finally successfully detoxed at Seabrook House in Seabrook, NJ. I then entered a women's transitional facility in Southern California where, during my 3-month stay, I began to gather the tools I needed to live without drugs. I learned the simple life skills that are necessary to stay clean and obtain serenity in my life. I stayed in California for 2 & 1/2 years while working and participating in 12-step recovery before returning home to NJ. I saw the need for something following the short term treatment that addicts were getting and began to pursue opening some housing for recovering addicts in NJ similar to what I experienced in California. So, here's what happened… 2001 - The Hansen Foundation, Inc. was formed. 2004 - Hansen House for Men opened with 34 bed capacity 2005 - Hansen House for Women opened with 34 bed capacity 2007 - Serenity House for Women opened with 11 beds 2008 - Serenity Meadows for Women opened with 10 beds 2012 - Randy Scarborough House for Men opened with 12 beds 2014 - Serenity Rose House for Women opened with 11 beds 2015 - Serenity Estates opened the first luxury sober living house for Women in NJ 2015 - September 15 - Enlightened Solutions opened with Partial Care, IOP & OP Treatment 2015 - Serenity Estates for Men opened with 14 beds 2015 - Hope Farm opened to the community to provide theraputic equine services I have been drug-free for 20 years and along with continuing to keep recovery my #1 priority, I practice yoga regularly and believe in eating healthy and organic foods. We are what we eat after all and our body is really all we have so we better take good care of it! I am so excited to be able to incorporate all of what I have learned in my recovery for the benefit of those in Enlightened Solutions and all of the Serenity Houses.

I felt that they were not upfront about the cost with us. We have dealt with several rehabs in the last year and know from experience to get any co-pay costs upfront (and this amount should not change once your loved one is in the facility). Also there is no reason to ever give your credit card number over the phone, online payment should be an option. Lost my trust in them (especially when comparing this experience to our other rehab experiences and their insurance and financial procedures). My husband and I agreed this was not the place for him so he left after 2 days. Not a fit for our family.

Good
I can’t believe no one has talked about the food. It’s all organic. I went hungry most days (I left this treatment center) because I hated everything and there was no other options. The beds are amazing. Tvs also in the room. Witch was great. The housing part was great. But going to group was horrible. I was so sick and they would not allow me to sit lay or anything other than to participate in group. Witch I understand. But I was puking and it was like staff didn’t know what to do with me. I was not happy. There was so much to do. And once you feel better that’s great. But when you are still in full detox this place does not care.

Thanks for the feedback! We understand that while detoxing you are craving junk food and sugar but it is our goal to detoxify the body and feed it foods that will fuel recovery. We have listened and incorporated baked sweets, Acai bowls, smoothies and fresh juices. We feel strongly about the food that you put in has a major part in healing the body so we are trying to give our clients the best we can!

First off I would like to start with My experience at Enlightened Solutions was the best experience I\'ve had in a drug and alcohol treatment facility and let me add that they took me in with no money or insurance on a scholarship until I and the clinical felt I was ready for the next step this center does not care about money yes it\'s a business as well but they genuinely care about the CLIENT! A Little about myself I\'ve been battling drug and alcohol addiction for 10 years I have been to multiple facilities from California to Florida I\'m a native to New Jersey and always went out of state because of lack of reputable treatment centers to get help. I was living in Florida for the past three years ended up putting some time together and got sober due to my lack of sticking with what I learned and the program I ended up going back out this being sent to New Jersey a place I never thought I would be going back to but I needed the help I was going to die. As soon as I got off the plane It was a warm Welcome by the staff who picked me up and from there my experience was far more then I expected in such a positive way. The housing is beautiful the cleanest center I have ever been to or have seen in my opinion, the therapists are phenomenal all of them! The work I did was so crucial they opened my eyes to whole new perspective! What I also loved is the owner personally puts in time to spend time with the clients at the center which to me is huge.. The staff is awesome and every single person that works for enlightened cares.. THEY CARE and want nothing but the best and success and to see their clients get clean and sober! I\'m now coming up on 8 months and my life is truly a blessing and they helped pave the way for me and for that I Am forever grateful to me they are like family finally New Jersey has a solution a place that cares for us. Thank you to all the staff at enlightened love you guys keep rocking!

I have been to multiple treatment facilities, and I have never experienced the type of care I received at Enlightened Solutions, anywhere else. I knew that they truly cared about my problem, and they were dedicated to getting to the root of it all. I learned things about myself that I never knew. It wasn\'t easy, but I felt like a new man when I left. I know I still have a lot to learn and a long way to go.. But now I have the tools to stay clean. I learned a new perspective there, and I will be forever grateful for it.

Excellent Staff who are knowledgeable , friendly, and readily available to all client's and clients family members. Beautiful BRAND NEW facility. Strong foundation in the holistic approach with a solid base of the 12-Step Approach I have pleasure of working at Enlightened Solutions. Everyday is as exciting as the next and am thrilled to wake up in the morning and go to work. The most rewarding feeling is when a client comes through the doors ambivalent at first and within a short time, they don't want to leave. I hear over and over again from clients and their family members "It's so nice to attend/work with a place that truly cares !"

I myself am in recovery and have seen treatment given from the high end to state funded places. I have never been around more passionate clinicians or people in general who truly care about each individual coming through the door.
