PARAMUS, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Strive Health, a leading provider of outpatient addiction and behavioral health treatment programs, today announced the opening of a new treatment center, Strive Health of Paramus. Located in Paramus, New Jersey, the new center will provide a wide range of trauma-informed outpatient treatment programs and services for adults and adolescents suffering from Substance Use Disorder and/or co-occurring mental health conditions. Strive offers intensive outpatient programs, outpatient programs, and early intervention services.
Strive Health of Paramus will also serve as a Center for Recovery and Community Health for the Bergen County community, forming connections with clinical professionals, and importantly, families, friends and a network of industry partners, working cohesively to support the individual’s journey of recovery.
Increasing access to treatment
"As an organization, we are dedicated to increasing the access to, and quality of, outpatient addiction and mental health treatment,” said Eric Frieman, co-CEO of Strive Health. “Strive Health of Paramus is addressing the significant unmet need for high-quality, affordable and effective treatment and we are honored to be serving the Northern New Jersey community.”
Strive Health of Paramus, the fifth center in the Strive Health Network, is committed to providing the highest-quality, evidence-based, and affordable treatment to individuals, families, and the community. Strive’s cost-effective treatment and flexible scheduling provide a solution for the significant number of individuals in the community who cannot find substance abuse treatment, due to cost, time commitment, convenience, treatment availability and job worries.
Strive Health, for example, is one of very few New Jersey treatment centers offering early-morning before-work appointments.
“As a native of New Jersey who has been in the addiction and mental health field my entire professional career, I am acutely aware of the devastating addiction crisis in New Jersey,” said Deborah McKinley, Executive Director of Strive Health of Paramus. “Strive Health of Paramus is more than just a treatment provider. We are here in the community, we are with the community, every step of the way."
Individualized and Client-Centered Care
Strive clinicians emphasize the Center's client-centered approach to treatment. This unique treatment approach empowers clients to work with their carefully selected interdisciplinary team of professionals to develop an individualized treatment plan, receive effective and compassionate care, and receive the guidance and tools to help them better understand and manage symptoms. Strive and clients work together as partners to help re-integrate into the community, strengthen resilience, and improve health.
"Our program is not a cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all program," says Deborah McKinley, Executive Director of the Strive Center. "We utilize a range of evidence-based therapies and the most up-to-date treatment modalities. We provide compassionate care that reflects each client’s individual needs, preferences and values.
"Individuals in treatment," says McKinley, "partner with Strive clinicians in creating their treatment plans, and then use these treatment plans to track progress."
Further, Strive Health of Paramus also proudly serves VFR Healthcare (Veteran & First Responder Healthcare), and is one of the few outpatient providers that offer confidential, trauma-informed addiction and mental health treatment services designed specifically for Veterans, First Responders and their families.
Connections with the community
Clinicians at Strive insist that, for individuals to sustain recovery, therapy must be coupled with rebuilding connections to the community.
"It's not enough to get sober," says Gary Rosenbluth, Strive Health New Jersey Founding Director. "People need to reconnect with their community: have connections, be healthy, have a job and love their home."
With Strive, staffers say, you are treated in the community in which you live, rebuilding a healthy, self-directed, joyful life.
