Frequently Asked Questions: John Brooks Recovery Center

At JBRC, we’re here to provide you with the tools and individualized treatment plan you need to begin and maintain your recovery journey. With a wide variety of programs and services, we provide a continuum of care for individuals suffering from substance use disorders regardless of financial circumstance or socio-economic background.

How do I know if I have a substance use disorder?

According to Caron, if you answer “yes” to any of the following questions, it may indicate substance abuse or addiction.

  • Has drinking and drug use caused relationship problems for the individual?
  • Has drinking or drug use caused problems with the individual’s primary responsibilities (work, school, caring for children, etc.)?
  • Has the individual ever tried to stop using alcohol or drugs but was unsuccessful?
  • Has drinking or drug use caused any legal difficulties?
  • Has drinking or drug use caused the individual to show signs of illness (shakiness, vomiting, paranoia, depression, etc.)?
  • Does the individual find it difficult to have a good time without using substances?

What is the first step in the admission process for both residential and/or outpatient treatment?
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.
