Ambrosia Treatment Center Philosophy

Ambrosia has earned an industry-leading reputation for quality care. Located on a secluded 44-acres, the Medford center offers comprehensive addiction treatment. Ambrosia provides safety and comfort while facilitating medical, therapeutic and holistic healing. Clients acquire the tools to build a solid foundation for a fulfilling and productive life without alcohol or drugs. While other treatment centers talk about individualized treatment plans, the concept is fully ingrained into everything Ambrosia does. The facility is committed to complete, lasting recovery.



Areas of Specialization

  • Family & Alumni Support
    Continued guidance and reinforcement is critical for both the client and loved ones. E-therapy and education helps family members support recovery in a healthy way and repair the destruction addiction causes. While Family Wellness starts on your first phone call, support is always available. Since addiction is a lifelong battle, alumni support is also available 24/7 with personal advice and local resource planning. Regular events and a buddy system further offer continued accountability.

  • Residential Treatment
    Individualized treatment plans consisting of intense counseling and education allow clients to get to the core of the issue, while also teaching coping and life skills to prevent future relapse. Any underlying or addiction-induced mental health issues are also dealt with under 24-hour supervision. The specialized programs build a healing foundation that is necessary to maintain a lifetime of recovery.

“Everyone comes in overwhelmed, but looking to make big change quickly. This is where the process starts. Where they learn to harness and hold on to hope. Recovery is an ongoing process, but there is always hope. Recovery is happening here every day.”

“My job is to get each and every client to accept what is, let go of what was and have faith in what will be. The past never has to be the future. In fact, your struggle can make you stronger. You can rebuild and make new, healthy relationships. When a client truly accepts the idea that addiction doesn't have to define them, recovery happens.”

ABOUT AMBROSIA TREATMENT CENTER – MEDFORD

Situated on a tranquil, secluded 44-acre property in Medford, N.J., 20 miles east of Philadelphia, Ambrosia offers luxury, short-term residential treatment for men and women struggling with chemical dependency and co-occurring mental health disorders. One of five locations of Ambrosia’s network of upscale treatment facilities, Ambrosia of Medford also provides medical detoxification services.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Upon admission, an intake coordinator determines if detoxification is necessary through an initial physical and verbal assessment. Typically lasting between 3 and 10 days, the detoxification process may incorporate medications (Suboxone, Naltrexone, Acamprosate) to alleviate withdrawal symptoms and curb cravings throughout treatment. Once a client is medically stable, he or she transitions into the residential program, which typically lasts between 14 and 35 days, depending on the needs of the client.

Ambrosia’s core programming includes evidence-based, therapeutic treatment methods to address underlying issues contributing to addictive behavior. In addition to 12-step involvement, clients participate in individual and group counseling sessions. Individualized treatment plans also address issues relevant to each client. For example, programs may incorporate marriage counseling or focus on skills for independent living.

Sessions are available to address grief, relationship building, specific dual diagnosis complications, and relapse prevention training. The program also offers medication management for individuals who have received a dual diagnosis. To assist clients in coping with anxiety and stress, Ambrosia offers therapeutic massages, acupuncture, guided meditation, and yoga.

To involve loved ones in treatment, Ambrosia holds bi-weekly family meetings and offers e-therapy sessions for families. Upon program completion, Ambrosia provides resource planning for both alumni and families, and alumni may take advantage of regular alumni events, 24/7 support and advice, and sponsorship coordination.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

Under the guidance of a clinical director, Ambrosia of Medford’s staff is comprised of over 25 professionals including licensed therapists and master’s level substance abuse counselors.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

Ambrosia offers a modern, upscale facility that features a newly-constructed game room, full-sized basketball court, and tennis court.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

Although Rehabs.com has only received a couple alumni surveys to date, one former client provided a rating of five out of five stars for overall treatment effectiveness. Reporting over two years of sobriety, alum Steve told Rehabs.com: “Everyone truly cared about me. I tried treatment before at two other places, but here the therapist actually got to the root of the issues.” N.B., another alum, gave a four-star rating for treatment effectiveness, also citing caring staff.

Multiple reviews from secondary sources supported N.B.’s and Steve’s positive opinions. Elsewhere online, 11 Google reviewers’ ratings average 4.5 out of five stars to date, and alum William posted: “Ambrosia showed me a way to deal with my addiction and go on with my life. I am very grateful to them. I highly recommend Ambrosia to others.”[1]

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

While feedback from loved ones is also limited at the time of this writing, four respondents offered high praise for the caring nature of the staff, and three gave five out of five stars for treatment effectiveness, accommodations and amenities, and meals and nutrition.

One survey respondent felt the program was highly beneficial and gave a five-star rating for overall treatment effectiveness. This sibling of a client told Rehabs.com: “Ambrosia changed my sister's life. That's not an exaggeration. She had been to several other facilities, with little, short-lived success, but Ambrosia was the only one that kept her sober for over a year now. She is a whole new person.”

FINANCING

Ambrosia accepts multiple private insurance providers to help cover the cost of treatment including Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, Cigna, and United HealthCare.

My daughter eas well taken care of and the family support is a blessing

Experienced, caring and knowledgeable staff. Very clean, comfortable and relaxing environment. They brought in chiropractic specialist as well as Yoga and other modalities to help with pain management. My son (early 20's) are great today and more hopeful for a great tomorrow. We have plans to fight the disease together. As a parent I have been provided strong hands to hold (support). This isn't a cure but a place to provide you a secure, safe environment while you heal and develop strength to fight this disease. I owe this place for breathing life into my child everyday. I can't say enough.

Strengths: Truly care, New facilities, Best therapists, Really helped, Private, Good communication. Ambrosia changed my sister's life. That's not an exaggeration. She had been to several other facilities, with little, short-lived success, but Ambrosia was the only one that kept her sober for over a year now. She is a whole new person. They have helped me personally too. I have let go of anger, resentment and started trusting her again. Actually, I still text my Wellness person regularly. I've definitely learned that not all treatment centers are the same, and I know from experience that Ambrosia is the right choice.

There's no other way to say it — They saved my life. Calling Ambrosia was the best deicison my family ever made.
