|Description of Program||Treatment at Daytop is designed to meet the needs of the vulnerable adolescent population. It is based on the premise of self-help in an atmosphere of positive peer interaction within the context of a family structure.
The Daytop New Jersey treatment program is unique in that our substance abuse, medical, mental health, family and educational services are fully integrated utilizing a multidisciplinary team approach. Treatment is behaviorally based and individualized to meet the unique needs of each adolescent.
Twelve Step concepts are incorporated, with Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) meetings held on site. Honesty, trust and responsibility are strongly emphasized. At the same time, conflict resolution, anger management and other emotional concerns are addressed. Family participation in the treatment process is essential and integral to the recovery of the adolescent.
