Paying for Treatment
If residents are unable to pay for their care, our counselors work with the new resident to find funding through programs such as:
Work First New Jersey Substance Abuse Initiative
New Jersey Driving Under the Influence Initiative
New Jersey Drug Court
Residents of Hunterdon and Somerset counties may be eligible for funding through their county’s Department of Human Services.
Within 35 days after admission, all residents get a full-time job and contribute to the cost of their treatment on a sliding scale basis.
