JBRC is committed to saving lives, spreading awareness and being a one-stop recovery provider and resource.
Mays Landing, NJ – John Brooks Recovery Center (JBRC), a member of AtlantiCare, offers an array of outpatient programs at its Atlantic City location at 1931 Bacharach Boulevard. Outpatient offerings include traditional outpatient programs, intensive outpatient programs (IOP), medication assisted treatment, and its Atlantic County Jail Inmate Reentry and Gambling Treatment programs.
The nonprofit recently received a $200,000 Expanded Hours for Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Outpatient Programs grant from the State of New Jersey Department of Human Services (DHS), Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services (DMHAS).
Michael Santillo, director II, AtlantiCare, says with the addition of the expanded hours for SUD outpatient programs at JBRC’s Atlantic City location, JBRC offers individuals with an SUD increased access to standard and intensive outpatient services.
“By extending our outpatient treatment hours, we are increasing access to care for individuals suffering from an SUD and removing traditional barriers to ongoing treatment,” said Santillo.
JBRC also offers traditional outpatient and intensive outpatient programs (IOP) and services for alcohol use disorder. “Alcohol use disorder should not be overlooked or dismissed,” said Santillo. “It is a real health issue that must be address. At JBRC, we use evidence-based treatment to help you or your loved one on the path to recovery.”
JBRC uses medication-assisted treatment to treat those with alcohol use disorder. “These medications can help manage craving, reduce the desire to drink. Their use is considered best-practice in the treatment of alcohol use disorder,” Santillo added.
