About the Facility

Philisophy

Maryville believes strongly in abstinence as the single most important element of recovery. Maryville advocates the use of 12-step programs, but understands that not every patient believes in the more spiritual aspects of the programs, and works to develop individualized treatment options for each clients based on their own unique needs and belief systems, as well as age and gender considerations. Each client at Maryville learns the life skills necessary to avoid relapse and create a healthy, hopeful life of sobriety.

Specialization

Intensive Out Patient (IOP)

Patients who undergo intensive outpatient treatment continue to live at home and sometimes go to school or work while participating in a highly structured treatment protocol that is focused on ending substance abuse. Programs vary in terms of how much treatment patients receive, how often and for how long. Some facilities design individualized intensive outpatient treatment programs.

Medical Detoxification

Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.

ABOUT MARYVILLE ADDICTION TREATMENT CENTER- WILLIAMSTOWN, NJ

Maryville Addiction Treatment Center (MATC), located in Williamstown, New Jersey, offers medically monitored detox and short-term residential treatment to adults struggling with substance use disorder or dual diagnosis. Founded in 1949, the organization also offers outpatient treatment at their other locations throughout New Jersey. MATC is one of just 17 non-hospital substance abuse treatment facilities in New Jersey to offer medical detox, which make up only 4.6 percent of all treatment facilities in the state.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

According to Maryville’s website, the average length of treatment is 20 days, sufficient to begin the recovery process, but with the expectation that clients will continue treatment in an outpatient setting.

The residential program combines evidence-based techniques with 12-step practices and includes individual counseling, group therapy, addiction education, and recreational activities, and well as medication-assisted treatment (MAT) when needed. Specialized services for trauma, grief and loss, veterans, and LBGTQ are also available. In addition, all clients are assigned various housekeeping and maintenance chores to build accountability and enhance their daily living skills.

Outpatient options offered at the facility’s Turnersville and Vineland locations include an intensive outpatient program (IOP) and a standard outpatient program. The IOP offers nine to 15 hours of treatment per week and can include a combination of individual, group, and family therapy. Clients are also expected to attend 12-step meetings. Standard outpatient treatment is much less intensive and consists of one to eight hours of treatment per week, depending upon each client’s need.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

Headed by a medical director, the treatment team includes registered nurses, certified social workers, certified alcohol and drug counselors, an admissions coordinator, and other various administrators. The four former clients polled by Rehabs.com to date on MATC's staff qualifications rated them highly.

Staff experience and training: 4.8/5

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

MTC's residential facility has 76 beds and is set on 40 wooded acres. At the time of this writing, the four alumni surveyed by Rehabs.com about the rehab's facility and activities gave them mediocre to high ratings.

Holistic offerings: 2.8/5
Exercise and leisure activities: 3.5/5
Facility cleanliness and upkeep: 4.5/5

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

Of the 12 former clients surveyed by Rehabs.com to date, seven gave MTC positive reviews, four gave the facility negative reviews, and one provided the rehab with a mixed review. Clients who were happy with their experience described MTC as an effective and informative program with experienced and caring staff. In a review representative of positive feedback, John called MTC's services "exceptionally good" and added: "The staff is very professional and totally committed to helping you. The food is excellent and abundant and the accommodations are clean and safe."

Unhappy alumni stressed the need for more holistic and extracurricular activities, as well as programming specific to opioid use disorder.

MTC received an average rating of 3.7 out of five stars based on 23 Google reviews. [1] The majority of former clients who left commentary about the facility described it as helpful and effective, including the following anonymous alum who wrote: "The best staff exposure you can ever imagine. These people really know there stuff."

Alumni feedback was less enthusiastic on CiteHealth[2], where three former clients evaluated the facility. One alum noted that while the program gave them "exactly what (they) needed and was looking for," the staff was problematic. The other two reviewers reported negative experiences and complained about a lack of structured treatment and a focus on money.

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

The majority of loved ones polled by Rehabs.com to date (three out of five) gave MTC negative feedback. Complaints included poor customer service, a lack of communication, and short treatment length. The other two reviewers provided mixed feedback: One loved one noted that while treatment was effective for his wife, he had a difficult time getting in touch with someone to reserve a bed for himself. The other noted that, while the facility was clean and they found it easy to communicate with their family member, treatment was not effective.

FINANCING

According to the facility’s website, fees start at $7,000 for 30 days. MTC also accepts Aetna insurance, and works with other insurance plans on an out-of-network basis.

    The CIT’s are useless, except for handing out cigarettes during breaks. They don’t have classes or step classes. Instead they have meetings that the patients run themselves. During breaks, they allow you to watch movies, listen to music and play video games. Most of the movies that I saw playing had drugs, alcohol, cursing, and sex. Not appropriate when trying to get clean. I did opt to take Vivitrol, which is great for decreasing my cravings. Only half the staff acted professionally. This includes CIT’s, playing on the phone or using bad language. Nurses were either great, or nasty and terrible. When I complained about a problem I had with one of the bad nurses, the good ones knew exactly who they were. As far as the accommodations, small rooms, small uncomfortable beds, and broken bathrooms. No real amenities, except for one room everyone had to share. Bring a book or two, unless you want to hear loud rap music or watch bad movies. No gym, or exercise facilities. They did have a football game on the weekend. Sorry, they did have one table in the break room to play dominoes. Meals were ok. If you have any dietary conditions, beware. They try, but not very well. Nothing very tasty. During my time there, there was not one time that we were allowed to eat in the cafeteria on time. Always late, then rushed out in order to let the females come in for there meals. We had a 5 minute snack break to feed 45 men, and since you’re not allowed to bring food back, you would have to sneak it back. To tell you how much better you would be going somewhere else, one of my roommates said he had detox in county jail, and said accommodations, food, and staff were better there. He as well as most people were only there due to drug court and were mandated to be there. If you have insurance, and want to get clean, go elsewhere. Good luck !

    A friend of mine just went to IOP at Maryville and had been clean for months. Working and doing the things that he should be doing. decided to take advice and do an intensive outpatient program. went to the program and started seeing videos of people using drugs and only with surrounded by people using and nothing uplifting or educational. I have not seen him so frustrated. I also went to the program about 20 years ago and felt exactly the same way. Frustrated and wanting to use with going to that program. The program needs to focus more on teaching people how to recover and not reminding them of how to use. You guys need more people who are educated on drug addiction and know what they're talking about. I never leave comments or ratings on businesses but something needs to be done for this program. it's very sad when someone who has been a lifelong drug user goes in and is upset because no one who works there put any effort force in helping besides his counselor.

    Wth! I called to ask a simple question on behalf of my son. I WAITED on hold for 25 minutes! When the stupid woman finally answered all she said was "Maryville" no hello thank you for calling OR I'm sorry for keeping you on hold for so damn long, nope! When I asked my question all she said was you have to contact the court. I was pissed mainly bc her tone wasn't very friendly! I HOPE just waiting on hold for so long on the phone is NOT AN INDICATION OF THIS PLACE..bc my son has already been to a couple & most of these type of places are dumps !..Work on customer service, Maryville! Not a good look!

    This facility was straight out of a horror movie. Staff was cold and all I could smell was urine. An absolute nightmare to go through withdrawal in a place like this.

    I haven\'t yet attended Maryville for any inpatient services, but what I do know is that I have been trying non-stop for 4 weeks, calling daily at 10am to see if they have a bed available and as you can probably tell, i\'m still waiting and still calling trying to get a bed! My wife attended the outpatient though howevee, and had great things to say about their IOP services. Good luck to anyone trying to get a \"bed\" at Maryville!

    I attended there ,Had a spiritual experience. .This place really helps if u dont have 30 grand to drop on a rehab,It doesn\'t matter Where u go its up to U!!
  • Sharon
    Do not fall for this sham of a rehab. Absolutely psychotic! There are definitely some CI\'s who care and some nurses who care. As a whole I would say what Maryville is doing is disgusting. They are uncaring and undeducated, especially in benzodiazepine withdrawal. They should be ahamed of themselves.

    Clean rooms and easy communication with patient. Ineffective at keeping my relative clean. I don't know if any treatment is effective unless the patient is actively trying to change.

    The staff is very experienced; the staff really care and are there for you. It was too small and too strict on the females. The women need to be able to do more than just walk around the driveway. They have a good detox program. However, they need more NA meetings, not AA, because most of the people are heroin addicts.

    It was a very informative program. They have up to date learning information and a wonderful qualified staff. It is a small woman's program; the men's side is 75% bigger.I did attend this program twice and completed it both times. Staff is both skilled and knowledgeable. Their program is up to date. Counselors are also knowledgeable and friendly. Food is outrageous! We had a personal chef!

    Service was exceptionally good. It was GREAT! Maryville is an excellent treatment center. I have been to previous treatment centers and this is without doubt the very best. The staff is very professional and totally committed to helping you. The food is excellent and abundant and the accommodations are clean and safe. If you are looking for a "Club Med" type of experience I suggest you look into one of the expensive rehabs in a tropical climate. If, however, you want to be finally rid of this awful affliction I would look no further than Maryville. When you're REALLY sick and tired of being sick and tired this is the place to go.

    The counselors on the premises and group settings were great. Exercise equipment needs improvement and overall cost is too high. My brother attended this facility and the program worked even though several years later he relapsed.
