Your comfort, well being, and recovery is our top priority at GenPsych. Our experienced and highly credentialed clinical team prides itself on providing discrete, high-quality care in a relaxed, welcoming, and empowering environment. Alcohol and drugs take a hard toll on the body, mind, and lives of users – and their loved ones. So, too, can mental health disorders. Our Dual Diagnosis/Substance Abuse Programs simultaneously address challenges derived from chemical dependence and those associated with mental health disorders. Many who struggle with addictions and mental health woes feel powerless and trapped, with little hope of regaining control. However, our clients possess reservoirs of strength and resilience that they often do not know exist. These keys to sustained recovery and mental health quality are emphasized in our Substance Abuse Program. We use proven, evidence-based treatment methods to break the chains of addiction – and to reclaim one’s life and help them to remain substance free. At GenPsych, P.C, we also specialize in the treatment of opiate addiction. We are a licensed Suboxone provider and offer medically assisted detoxification to adults in our program.
ABOUT GENPSYCH – BRIDGEWATER
GenPsych’s Bridgewater center offers ambulatory detoxification on-site and outpatient treatment for those dealing with substance misuse and other psychiatric and mental health conditions. Treatment options consist of separate program tracks for substance misuse, eating disorders, psychiatric disorders, or a dual diagnosis. In addition to the Bridgewater center, GenPsych has four other locations in New Jersey that provide similar services.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
GenPsych offers individualized treatment plans tailored to each client’s needs. If necessary, medical detoxification services are available. GenPsych is also one of only 28 (7.5 percent) treatment facilities in New Jersey to offer medically-assisted detox.
Bridgewater’s treatment offers a blend of holistic approaches and evidence-based methods, including dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), and motivational interviewing. Additionally, clients learn about community-based treatment models, such as 12-Step, SMART Recovery, and Double Trouble in Recovery.
The Bridgewater center has outpatient programs for adults as well as adolescents. Intensive outpatient programs (IOP) are offered in the mornings and evenings for three hours per day, three days per week. Designed for clients who require more intensive care, the facility offers a Partial Care Program, which involves five-and-a-half hours of clinical treatment.
During treatment, clients participate in group and individual counseling, music and art therapy, and relapse prevention groups. Clients also attend educational classes on anger management, coping skills, the nature of addiction, and other topics. Family therapy is offered if needed.
Bridgewater employs adult, adolescent, and child psychiatrists, nurses, masters- and doctorate-level clinicians, registered dieticians, licensed or certified alcohol and drug counselors, and art and music therapists. State board-certified teachers provide instruction for children enrolled in youth programs.
GenPsych is one of 70 (18.9 percent) treatment organizations in New Jersey to be certified by the Joint Commission.
