Ambrosia Treatment Center New Jersey Overview

Located in Medford, New Jersey, Ambrosia Treatment Center is a substance abuse facility that offers short-term residential treatment to clients with co-occurring disorders. Clients with co-occurring disorders might find this facility to be a good option, as its programs are geared more towards individuals with such an issue. The facility also incorporates evidence-based treatment modalities such as the 12-step model, medication management, individual therapy, and group therapy. Clients registered in any of the Ambrosia treatment facilities can be referred to other rehabs in other states depending on the level of care needed.
On admission, clients are required to complete an intake assessment and this evaluation will help determine the kind of care the individual requires.
