Philosophy

We are you. People seeking Recovery want hope. And results. They want to know the people they are entrusting their lives to understand what they’ve been through and what they are going through now. We’ve walked in your shoes. We’ve lied, cheated, stole, broke the law, manipulated, complicated, and frustrated families, friends, and ourselves. But we also got up and tried again. And again. We know the desperation. We’ve cried the same tears of hopelessness, disappointment, and fear. But we found hope with long term Recovery. And we hold onto it with dear life. We can help you get through it because we’ve been through it. We know Recovery because we live Recovery.

AJ Solomon
Co-Founder

At Victory Bay Recovery, helping people to acquire and maintain sobriety is a true blessing for AJ Solomon. Growing up in South Jersey and graduating from University of Pittsburgh with a Bachelors of Arts, AJ had an internship with US Senator Patrick Toomey. Then, while working for the Advance Team for New Jersey Governor Christie, he found himself struggling with addiction. He talks about how his life was saved because he attended treatment and was introduced to a new way of life. AJ credits his determination, his willingness to change his entire value system, plus great sponsorship, as big components in his recovery. It was through recovery that he realized it was the first thing that he was truly passionate about and his path for helping people was forged. As Co-Founder of Victory Bay Recovery Center, AJ now is blessed to be able to help others struggling with addiction.

Although the change has to come from within VBRC has shown, and given me, all the tools necessary in realizing my full potential. They have encouraged me in all the positive aspects of my life but have not catered to the negative ones. Even though it's been a bumby and confusing ride (as trying to get and stay clean always is) they have never turned their backs on me. Being alone and far from home can be terrifying, however, I've never felt more loved and welcome than I have in this program, a home away from home. This is personal to them. The bumby ride progressively got smoother and I am now graduating the program today and coming up on 9 months sober. I feel free and full of ambitions and dreams, something I have never been able to say or experience in my entire life. It is incredibly exciting. I owe an immense part of that to them. When I asked what I could do to show some sort of gratitude for this service. I was told to go help someone else who's struggling. And that's really what this whole thing is all about to them. Thanks guys, I know we'll stay in touch!

Victory Bay treatment center provided the recovery sanctuary necessary to heal and acquire a strong foothold on the path to long term sobriety. While residing at victory Bay my 18 year old daughter received the support of their recovery community and individual counseling. needed to create new healthy coping and living skills. With the guidance of the program at victory bay my daughter has had the opportunity to discover herself and uncover a desire to live a life she never knew existed. After completing the program I received a phone call from her that sums up the potential for success " Hi mom, I just want to let you know how happy I am, I never knew I could feel this way . I was so sick I didn't realize it , I just didn't care about anything, I now have a desire to live to have dreams and goals I want to achieve. I'm so sorry that I was so awful to you , thank you for loving me . I love you so much." thank you Victory Bay for restoring.my child's life.

I am very impressed with Victory Bay Recovery across the board, starting with inception on day one when my son first went there and all the way through the treatment process which in our case includes IOP and sober living housing. They made the whole onboarding process so easy at a time when our stress levels were so heightened. The team there is always accessible and at all levels. Even on our first day one if the founders sat down with us to talk and it helped. his therapist has been tremendous and "always" there to discuss things and to help ensure a successful outcome. She always seems to have the right balance of care, understanding, and directness to ensure the things that matter are heard and absorbed my the clients. Vic Bay's approach to treatment and the methodologies applied just works! And my son is now 6 months sober and one of the youngest clients there. I'm sincerely grateful to this facility and the many individuals that work together to make success stories which I know my son is and will continue to be one of their successes.

I have been working at Victory Bay from the beginning and have found from the top down an overall passion for creating the best experience for their clients. From the continued trainings offered to staff and the new and focused approach on how they direct their treatment. I do not believe there is any other place that has that kind of care and motivation to helping clients. A diverse staff with low caseloads, and the ability to offer extended aftercare for the clients. Currently no nurse on staff. At this time it is outsourced to a Dr. In the community.

My son went there, he said it was horrific. There was a house full of kids who have been there in and out for months. They tried hitting me for 150 dollars a week for rent but his roommates didn’t have to pay? I’m confused. The one house manager would sleep out on The Weeknd’s and leave them on there own. He is at sobriety solutions now in Blackwood and I would recommend that for your loved one.

Eat food, go to crappy groups ran by whoever gets picked , go back home and relapse. They put you on 5 days a week and take your phone two weeks and then you go back to 3 days a week. The cycle continues..

Some of the most immature staff I have ever seen, they all disrespect each other and try to get each other in trouble and tell the clients about it. Very sad what has happened to these guys they are really going downhill fast.

They give us a lot of food, once insurance is up they kick you out on to the street. Place is taking a turn for the worst ... and they told me I can’t come back , thank god. They will figure a way to delete this I’m sure. That’s all true too. The IOP is good and has good Counsler’s .

Victory Bay employs a wonderful staff that are all focused on recovery and demonstrate a genuine concern for the holistic well-being of all clients. Any and all personal needs are accommodated above and beyond to ensure everyone has everything they need to work on themselves, so that they can establish a foundation for the rest of their sober lives. Victory Bay has done more for me personally than any other facility/support network/clinical staffing has ever done before. I highly recommend Victory Bay for anyone interested in IOP, Sober Living, PHP, or OP.

I have been to numerous treatment centers, but none have been as effective as Victory Bay. From the very beginning of my stay, they were nothing but supportive. The staff kept close to me and kept me on the right track to the best of their ability. I was made to feel comfortable enough to stay; however, I was also pushed to better myself and work towards the person I had forgotten I could be. The focus on not just my drug use issues, but my family and emotional issues as well, was tremendously helpful. They go hand in hand which was hard for me to see before and had always stunted me in my recovery. I certainly fought every step of the way and it was not easy, but Victory Bay did not give up on me. They played a crucial role in kick-starting my recovery, and I absolutely would not be where I am today had I not attended their treatment facility.

Victory Bay has made my transition to a better way of life fun, educational, and an all around freeing experience. The counselors have all the knowledge it takes to guide me in my recovery. With a wide variety of therapeutic group counseling, one on one sessions, and life skills, my awareness of the disease of addiction and progress towards correcting my old behaviors has sky-rocketed. When I first met the staff members, I didn't feel like I was going into treatment. I felt like I was welcomed into a whole other family of recovering addicts and alcoholics with nothing but love and tolerance. When it comes down to it, if you're looking for structure, guidance, a spiritual experience, and a new way of life lead by caring professionals, you will find it all and much more at Victory Bay.

Staff and owner are very supportive and genuinely care about the well-being of their residents. Outside activities and meetings make for less monotony throughout the day. Housing is quite comfortable and there is an abundance of food. I can't think of any complaints thus far throughout my stay here. They had one counselor that was kind of boring but i think they got rid of him and was replaced immediately with a dude who is awesome. Close knit sober community with a lot of outside support. My transition from in-patient to their sober living was smooth and comfortable.

I highly recommend Victory Bay Recovery Center for anyone suffering from addiction. The staff is amazing, they truly care about each client and making a difference. Victory Bay's model is different than anything in this area making the treatment experience unique. Knowing so many loved ones that have tried and failed the standard outpatient substance abuse treatment model, Victory Bay brings relief knowing that there is another option and it's right here in South Jersey! I think we will see big things from this recovery center in the future as they grow and continue to save lives!

They have a robust and individualized treatment schedule. The staff, especially the ownership, was compassionate and involved in the care I received. My after care planning was done far in advance and made me feel confident that I could leave and be successful. I would suggest Victory Bay to anyone suffering with alcoholism or addiction. Of all the places I have received treatment, Victory Bay was definitely the most comprehensive and beneficial.
