ABOUT THE COUNSELING CENTER AT CLARK, NJ
Located in Clark, New Jersey, a short drive south of Newark, The Counseling Center At Clark offers outpatient and intensive outpatient (IOP) services for individuals in Union County and nearby struggling with substance abuse and mental health disorders. It is one of 214 facilities in New Jersey with a specialized program for treating co-occurring disorders. The facility has been awarded the Gold Seal for Quality by the Joint Commission and is licensed by the NJ Dept. Mental Health, Office of Alcohol & Mental Health Services.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
The Counseling center offers two levels of treatment. It is part of the 65.4% of New jersey facilities to boast an intensive outpatient program. The IOP is the more rigorous of the two and eligibility is based on a clinical assessment. It combines evidence-based treatment (including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) with elements of the 12 Step principles. The standard outpatient program offers individual and group therapy sessions.
According to the facility's blog it also runs occasional community education events, including a recent event on Naxolone and overdose treatment where they distributed free Narcan kits to attendees.
Little information is available on the facility's website regarding the staff. It does say that therapy sessions are lead by "licensed and qualified Addiction Counselors, psychologists, and other professional treatment providers" and notes that group therapy sessions are kept small, indicating a low staff to patient ratio.
