SEABROOK, N.J., Nov. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In order to provide additional drug and alcohol treatment to area residents, Seabrook House is excited to announce the opening of two new full service outpatient programs.
"Seabrook House has earned its reputation for excellence in the treatment of adults suffering from alcoholism and drug addiction," said President Ed Diehl. "We already offer detox services along with inpatient and extended care programs, which includes outpatient counseling located on our main campus near Bridgeton, New Jersey. The new facilities that recently opened in Cherry Hill and Northfield will allow us to reach even more South Jersey and Philadelphia area residents seeking treatment.
Seabrook House was founded in 1974, by Jerry and Peg Diehl, who along with their AA fellowship friends, would travel late into the night to get relapsing members to rehabs far away. They had the strong desire to establish a treatment center closer to home in South Jersey. These new outpatient facilities are just another example how Seabrook House continues to fulfill the mission of its founders.
"The Cherry Hill and Northfield recovery services are offered in an outpatient setting where men and women attend individual counseling and group meetings each week," said Diehl. "Too often those who need treatment feel that they can not take time away from work to get the help they truly desire. Our outpatient programs are an excellent option to those who need to work a program around school, work and other daily responsibilities. Additionally, most insurance covers outpatient addiction treatment."
The Cherry Hill and Northfield treatment centers will be supervised by our Director of Outpatient Services, Ann Marie Bescherer, Ph.D., MBA., NCC., LPC., LCADC, and are staffed with credentialed, licensed clinical staff.
Diehl stated that, "Seabrook House has been afforded the opportunity to offer a full continuum of care in accordance with our treatment recommendations from our inpatient and extended care on our main campus near Bridgeton. Now with the addition of the Cherry Hill and Northfield centers, we are able to offer more patients a smooth transition from one level of care to the next with the same great service that they deserve and expect from Seabrook House."
According to Diehl, both new facilities provide comfortable meeting rooms, and are complete with a cafe lounge with wifi for patients to congregate. These facilities will also be used for self help meetings, AA, NA and Al-Anon family groups. There are both day and evening programs available.
"There is both limited access to care and an increased demand for high quality addiction treatment services in these local communities," said Diehl. "Our current inpatient population will benefit greatly from the opening of Northfield and Cherry Hill. Both facilities fulfill a need in offering accessible aftercare to transition back into regular work and home life."
