Rehab In Egg Harbor City, NJ

Recovery from addiction is a long-term process. While detox and inpatient rehab are vital first steps, most clients need continuing treatment at lower levels of care. Often, as clients heal from the harmful effects of substance abuse, they begin to understand the root causes of their addiction. At our outpatient rehab in Egg Harbor City, New Jersey, we continue the work that clients began during detox and inpatient care. That way, our clients can tackle their addiction at the root cause, leading to lower relapse rates, improved quality of life, and better treatment outcomes.

Addiction in Egg Harbor City, NJ

Atlantic County, New Jersey, the home of Egg Harbor City, had the third-highest substance abuse treatment admissions statewide in 2021, according to the New Jersey Department of Human Services. These high rates of admissions highlight the need for rehab centers within this area.

Additional drugs among those in treatment were cocaine, methamphetamine, marijuana, and other opiates. Our Egg Harbor rehab program helps clients struggling with alcohol and drug addiction as well as co-occurring mental health disorders.

The NJ Department of Human Services provides additional statistics about addiction in Atlantic County. The following relates to the types of addictions that residents of Atlantic County sought treatment for in 2021:

  • 3,597 (48%) of clients seeking treatment cited heroin as their primary drug

  • 2,076 (28%) of clients identified alcohol as their primary drug

  • 1,834 (25%) of clients were unemployed upon admission

  • 68% of clients were male, compared to 32% female

  • Only a small percentage had attended a self-help group within 30 days of admission (13% in NA; 11% in AA)

Levels of Care

Most detox services occur at an inpatient level of care, meaning that clients reside within the facility throughout treatment. After that, most clients move on to an inpatient or residential treatment program that usually lasts 30 to 90 days. Though this might seem like a long time, most clients only scratch the surface of their addiction triggers and underlying causes.

Our outpatient services provide clients with continuing support as they transition from inpatient programs to everyday life. By taking a step-down approach, clients can gradually learn new habits and healthy coping skills for lifelong recovery. We offer three levels of care at our rehab in Egg Harbor City. Each level varies in terms of professional support, structure, and time in treatment.

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

Our partial hospitalization program (PHP) is the highest level of care we offer. Sometimes called “day treatment,” PHPs occur for several hours daily for five days each week. During PHP, clients continue building the skills that they attained in residential care without the restrictions of living within a facility.

During PHP in Egg Harbor City, clients get an immersive experience with peers and professionals while residing within their own homes or a sober living program. Clients follow a structured daily schedule that includes group as well as individual therapeutic activities. 

This program is great for those who aren’t yet ready or able to resume their careers or academic pursuits following inpatient rehab.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

Intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) are our next level of care after PHP. Some clients might be ready to attend an IOP if the schedule of a PHP is too restrictive. At our IOP in Egg Harbor City, clients attend the program around their schedule. That way, they can go back to work, resume family duties, or attend school with minimal disruption.

IOPs occur for several hours each week, and sessions are broken up into blocks of two to three hours each. Clients will have a mix of group and individual sessions, which include therapy and life skills preparation. Our IOP offers sessions in the morning, afternoon, and evening for greater flexibility.

In addition, Vista Research found that Enlightened Recovery’s IOP boasts a 67% successful completion rate compared to the 26% national average.

Outpatient Program (OP)

Outpatient programs (OP) are the least restrictive type of program that we offer. Clients in OP have the coping skills and natural support system to manage without the intensity of PHP and IOP. Usually, clients attend an hourly appointment with a therapist or group once per week. This helps clients continue to grow and work on underlying issues or challenges to recovery.

OP is also more flexible in terms of the specific issues a client will bring up during sessions. While PHP and IOP have a majority of sessions built around topics about recovery in general, OP can be geared towards more unique struggles of each person in recovery. 

Common topics in OP include grief and loss, low self-esteem, relationship problems, coping with stress, negative thinking, and other issues that could trigger relapse or decrease a person’s life satisfaction.

12-Step Philosophy 

The 12 steps are widely recognized in addiction recovery, often the first thing that comes to mind when discussing treatment. However, there are misconceptions. Some view them as too traditional or religiously focused. Yet, we emphasize the underlying principles over the literal steps at Enlightened Recovery. 

During treatment, you’ll learn about the 12 steps and their philosophy, preparing you for involvement in long-term recovery communities like AA and NA. We believe in the value of these steps and aim to support your success and connection within these groups.

Individual Therapy

Individual therapy involves private sessions between a licensed therapist and a client, where the therapist leads discussions on various topics like past experiences and relationships while providing insight. At Enlightened Recovery, clients receive individual therapy at every stage of recovery, including detox, residential, partial hospitalization, and outpatient treatment. 

After completing treatment, clients can continue therapy with their assigned therapist or receive recommendations from individual therapists in New Jersey.

Gender-Specific and Coed Groups

Various resources support the idea that both men and women often benefit from gender-specific treatment settings due to specific interpersonal issues and temperament concerns. Thus, we’ve established separate spaces for men and women to share their experiences comfortably. 

At Enlightened Recovery, we recognize gender differences in treatment response and assign gender-specific leaders to therapy groups to foster trust and comfort. While some sessions are gender-specific, we also incorporate coed group therapy sessions into our treatment model.

Cognitive-behavioral Therapy (CBT)

We utilize CBT techniques to help individuals recognize triggers, develop coping strategies, and cultivate healthier ways of thinking and behaving.


Our yoga sessions offer physical postures, breathing exercises, and meditation to promote relaxation, stress reduction, and increased self-awareness. In the context of addiction recovery, yoga helps manage cravings, reduce anxiety and depression, and improve overall well-being.


We teach various meditation techniques to develop greater emotional resilience, reduce impulsivity, and enhance coping skills. Regular meditation practice supports ongoing sobriety and relapse prevention.

Integration of Therapies

By combining CBT with yoga and meditation, we address addiction from multiple angles—cognitive, emotional, physical, and spiritual. This integrated approach provides a well-rounded treatment experience that supports lasting recovery and improved quality of life.

Individualized Treatment Plans

Our treatment plans are tailored to meet the unique needs and preferences of each individual. We work collaboratively with clients to develop personalized plans that may include a combination of evidence-based and complementary therapies.

Overall, our commitment to providing comprehensive, holistic care reflects our dedication to addressing the complex nature of addiction and promoting healing and empowerment for all our clients.

Begin Rehab in Egg Harbor City, NJ

After completing a detox and inpatient program, many clients still need services to fully recover from drug and alcohol addiction. While these programs build the foundations that clients need, they also need to practice their healthy habits and skills outside of a treatment facility. Outpatient rehab with varying levels of care allows clients to gradually lessen the amount of professional support they have in treatment.
