ABOUT INHEALTH ASSOCIATES
Located in a clapboard home-style building on Route 15 in Lafayette, N.J., 40 miles northwest of Newark, InHealth Associates is a private practice offering outpatient counseling services for adults and youths struggling with a range of mental and behavioral health problems, including substance abuse, stress, and depression. Medical detox is not available at this facility, but the medical director is authorized to prescribe Suboxone.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Therapy sessions are offered in a variety of settings: individual, couples’, premarital, marriage, family, and group. The facility is particularly geared to help with stress, family issues, low self-esteem, relationship problems, life challenges, and emotional problems.
The staff psychiatrist can offer medication management services, and other staff members provide specialist and evidence-based services such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), Christian-based therapy, and relaxation training.
Staff includes a board-certified psychiatrist, three psychologists, two nurse practitioners, and two licensed clinical social workers. Many staff members are educated to PhD level. The single individual polled by Best-rehabs.com to date on their counselor’s level of training gave it five out of five stars.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
Both alumni polled by Best-rehabs.com to date gave very positive feedback. Both reviewers gave the center five out of five stars for the level of support they received from its staff, and credited InHealth Associates with their long-term sobriety. “I would be dead right now if it weren't for InHealth Associates,” one anonymous reviewer wrote, and the other added: “InHealth Associates employs some truly amazing people and every single one of them has helped in my recovery.”
On Google, InHealth Associates had two one-star ratings and a five-star rating at the time of this writing. The five-star reviewer left no commentary, but both one-star reviewers reported that they were charged cancellation fees, in their view unfairly. “Look elsewhere for your mental health needs,” Kathleen wrote — though Amy noted that her husband enjoyed the sessions he had at the facility, and that the difficulty was strictly administrative.
The varying treatment providers at this facility accept varying insurances: some accept Medicare and are in-network with Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, Cigna, and other insurers, but clients should check coverage with their individual provider. Private payments may be made via cash, check, credit, or debit card.
The facility’s website notes: “Please be aware that some, and perhaps all, of the services provided may be non-covered services and not considered reasonable and necessary under your medical insurance and you will be responsible for these unpaid charges.”
