Admission Process for JBRC Residential Programs
If you or someone you know is struggling with a substance use disorder, please call JBRC today. For Residential Programs – Residential Detox/Withdrawal Management, Short-term Residential or Long-term Residential, please call 609-345-0110 for a brief screening interview. If possible, it is suggested that the individual seeking treatment should be available to participate in the phone call. At that time, you will be informed regarding bed space and initial eligibility. Applicants on methadone or Suboxone must be referred by their MAT treatment program.
