About Us

Wellness Center NJ operates as a free-standing outpatient detoxification and substance abuse treatment facility, located in Cliffside Park, New Jersey, just outside the New York City area. Our Detox department believes in providing superior medical detox, in regard to substance abuse, in a comfortable and inviting atmosphere to help handle any symptoms of withdrawal. Our office is licensed buprenorphine medical detox center and most clients going through detox for heroin or opiate pain medications (e.g. Oxycontin, Percocet, Vicodin) will be given buprenorphine. To better serve our clients, our detox services are covered by a number of health insurance plans. Our clients know that they are not alone. Once completed detox treatment, our discharge planners will help them decide what they should do next, and with a network of the finest treatment centers for outpatient counseling in the prevention of a relapse, we will be happy to make continuing care arrangements.

Based on the circumstances and severity of your drug or alcohol addiction, you will need to make a decision about your treatment options. It is a good idea to work with a medical doctor, as you may experience withdrawal symptoms in abstaining from certain drugs and the abuse of alcohol. A detox program that will provide a safe and comfortable medical detox protocol will ease the withdrawal process. With alcohol and certain prescription drugs, stopping their use without being medically supervised can be dangerous and potentially life threatening. While in detox you will receive individual and group counseling with a therapist and psychiatrist, also you will be able to be monitored by our Internal Medical Doctor and by Psychiatrists, who specialize in substance abuse treatments.
