ABOUT ORGANIZATION FOR RECOVERY
One of only 29 clinics (7.8% of addiction treatment facilities) offering methadone maintenance in New Jersey, the Organization for Recovery (OFR) is a private, nonprofit facility in operation since 1997. The outpatient clinic provides outpatient treatment programs in Spanish and English, putting it in a large minority (about 40%) of New Jersey’s 371 substance abuse treatment facilities. OFR also provides medication-assisted treatment (MAT) utilizing Suboxone or methadone.
OFR operates facilities in the communities of Plainfield, Elizabeth, and Cherry Hill. Clients unable to access the Plainfield facility benefit from a mobile medication unit, also known as the PRIME Project.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Clients are typically referred to this facility via Drug Court and other criminal justice programs or community service agencies. Organization for Recovery approaches chemical dependency through a harm reduction model** of treatment. Access to services begins with a telephone screening, followed by an in-person assessment by a physician and addiction counselor, which includes a full physical exam.
The medication-assisted treatment of OFR is available to assist with short-term withdrawal, as well as support longer-term maintenance programs. Both approaches emphasize lifestyle changes to support ongoing sobriety, according to the facility’s website. Supportive programming is provided in standard outpatient and intensive outpatient program (IOP) levels of care. Along with MAT, programming involves group and individual counseling, family therapy, drug testing, and extensive case management and referral services. Clients may also receive psychiatric treatment as needed.
IOP tracks are designed as step-down processes from residential care, meeting for nine hours a week in addition to the Suboxone or methadone regimen. Standard and intensive outpatient programming is also offered without medication assistance. Additional medical services available at OFR include education and testing for HIV and hepatitis, which fewer than 30% of NJ facilities provide.
The Organization for Recovery treatment team features registered nurses, as well as an addictionologist and psychiatrist, who are both certified in administering methadone and Suboxone. Staff psychotherapists are master’s-level licensed alcohol and drug counselors.
