Review by Rehabs.com Contributors


Located in Jersey City, N.J., Spectrum Health Care Inc. provides opioid therapy to adults in an outpatient care setting. Clients come from areas near Hudson County. Treatment is offered as a 30-day detox program and for Methadone maintenance.


Treatment targets opioid users, only. Any client that would not benefit from opioid therapy is referred to an appropriate treatment program. Treatment starts with a screening and a bio-psycho-social assessment, where a personalized treatment plan is created.

If clients require detoxification services, clients participate in a 30-day detox program. It is offered on an outpatient basis and includes the gradual reduction of opiates.

Methadone maintenance is offered on an ongoing basis for those who have been assessed to need it. It is administered as a tablet or as a liquid, depending on client preferences and needs.

In addition, clients participate in individual, family, and group therapy. Referrals are made to other community programs to help clients with housing, jobs, and legal assistance, as needed.

Throughout treatment, the facility conducts random urine screenings at least monthly to ensure adherence to the program. If clients show continued sobriety and willingness to participate in the program, they may become eligible for take-home bottle (THB) dosing privileges to reduce the need to come into the facility for methadone dispensing.


The treatment team consists of physicians, registered nurses, a psychiatrist, case managers, and professional counselors.


One alumni review has been submitted to Rehabs.com about Spectrum Health Care Inc. to date. The review was mostly positive, with five out of five stars in most categories, including treatment effectiveness, counseling options, and whether he felt treatment at Spectrum Newark was worth the cost. The alum gave two out of five stars for meals and nutrition and its holistic offerings, though it should be noted that the facility offers only outpatient treatment.

On Google, the facility earned 4.8 out of five stars from five reviewers to date.[1] Alumni primarily praised the staff. Alum John wrote: “This place is the best. The drug addiction counselor was very helpful in assisting me with getting the help for a drug rehab for myself. I got the best assistance. 100% Recommended.” Tom added: “Jack is the best guy in the business.”


To date, one loved one has submitted feedback about the facility. The review was positive, with four- out of five-star ratings for treatment effectiveness, facility maintenance, and accommodations. While the loved one would fully recommend the facility, and thought it was worth the cost, the loved one noted how additional career assistance would be valuable for clients.


According to the facility’s website, Spectrum Health Care Inc. will provide care for clients who cannot afford to pay for treatment services who meet certain eligibility criteria. The facility also accepts Medicaid.
