ABOUT MARYVILLE ADDICTION TREATMENT CENTER- WILLIAMSTOWN, NJ
Maryville Addiction Treatment Center (MATC), located in Williamstown, New Jersey, offers medically monitored detox and short-term residential treatment to adults struggling with substance use disorder or dual diagnosis. Founded in 1949, the organization also offers outpatient treatment at their other locations throughout New Jersey. MATC is one of just 17 non-hospital substance abuse treatment facilities in New Jersey to offer medical detox, which make up only 4.6 percent of all treatment facilities in the state.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
According to Maryville’s website, the average length of treatment is 20 days, sufficient to begin the recovery process, but with the expectation that clients will continue treatment in an outpatient setting.
The residential program combines evidence-based techniques with 12-step practices and includes individual counseling, group therapy, addiction education, and recreational activities, and well as medication-assisted treatment (MAT) when needed. Specialized services for trauma, grief and loss, veterans, and LBGTQ are also available. In addition, all clients are assigned various housekeeping and maintenance chores to build accountability and enhance their daily living skills.
Outpatient options offered at the facility’s Turnersville and Vineland locations include an intensive outpatient program (IOP) and a standard outpatient program. The IOP offers nine to 15 hours of treatment per week and can include a combination of individual, group, and family therapy. Clients are also expected to attend 12-step meetings. Standard outpatient treatment is much less intensive and consists of one to eight hours of treatment per week, depending upon each client’s need.
Headed by a medical director, the treatment team includes registered nurses, certified social workers, certified alcohol and drug counselors, an admissions coordinator, and other various administrators.
