Advanced Health & Education Philosophy

Addiction is a destructive force that can wreak havoc on the lives of people suffering from the disease, and everyone around them. Advanced Health and Education can help you or your loved one recover from addiction and get life back on track. Adults with substance abuse issues now have a professional partial care and intensive outpatient treatment center conveniently located in Monmouth County, New Jersey. Advanced Health and Education offers a comprehensive set of traditional and alternative therapies in a peaceful, nurturing environment. Our alcohol and drug addiction treatment programs are carefully customized and tailored to the specific needs of each individual. Our expert team of addiction specialists has been helping people achieve sobriety and live fuller, more meaningful lives for more than forty years. We can help you too.

Areas of Specialization

  • Creative Arts Therapy
    Writing, making art or engaging in theater can be deeply therapeutic for people working to recover from addiction. Many facilities offer one or several forms of creative arts therapy as a way to help patients learn to express their feelings in productive ways.

  • Client & Family Support Groups
    Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.

Located in the community of Eatontown, N.J., 50 miles south of New York City, Advanced Health & Education (AHE) is one of the 79 (23 percent) of New Jersey treatment centers that offer a partial hospitalization program (PHP), as well as among the 225 (65.4 percent) of facilities in the state to offer an intensive outpatient program (IOP). It also offers standard outpatient programs for adults and adolescents seeking treatment for a substance use disorder.

The facility emphasizes long-term, customized care, and specialized treatment programs are available for professionals and the LGBT community. AHE is operated by Sprout Health Group, which also provides intensive treatment programs at Cedar Point Recovery in Sacramento, Calif.


Before admission, prospective clients participate in an initial phone assessment to help clinicians determine an appropriate, individualized treatment program. This determination is based in part on substance use and family histories. Although detoxification services are not available directly through Advanced Health & Education, staff can help arrange for treatment and supportive housing at recommended local facilities.

Individual and group counseling sessions, utilizing cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), are central to AHE treatment plans. The facility also incorporates an array of alternative therapies, including chiropractic, yoga, guided meditation, physical fitness, and drama. Dual diagnosis treatment is available to address co-occurring disorders, including food-related conditions. Within the state, 37.8 percent of the facilities in New Jersey offer treatment for other forms of addiction.

Advanced Health & Education offers three types of outpatient care, ranging from four to 30 hours per week of treatment. Outpatient programs are held in the evenings, and intensive outpatient programs typically run from 45 days to 16 weeks.

Specialized tracks oriented towards trauma, Buddhist principles, first responders, licensed professionals, such as doctors and pilots, and young and older adults are also available. Case management is offered to all clients to address legal and employment issues, and aftercare is offered in various forms, including ongoing monitoring services, alumni support groups, and social events.


Under the direction of an executive director who holds a master's degree in counseling and licensing in acupuncture, Advanced Health & Education’s programs are facilitated by a team of masters-level therapists, certified drug and alcohol counselors, social workers, and case managers. Consulting psychiatrists and psychologists contribute help facilitate dual diagnosis treatment. AHE is part of the 19.2 percent of New Jersey facilities accredited by the Joint Commission.
