Extended Care


For individuals who seek the benefits of a longer period of treatment and greater support returning to real world settings, we offer a unique Extended Care drug and alcohol treatment program.  This program serves a vibrant community of individuals in early recovery, and it  focuses more deeply on developing constructive behaviors that enable long-term sobriety and smooth functioning in social, family, and vocational or educational contexts.

Our Extended Care clients live together in a supervised sober house within walking distance of Mountainside’s 24/7 recovery care and support.  During the day, they work part-time in various capacities at Mountainside affiliated facilities.  They interact with the local community in a real-world setting while still remaining in a safe and structured sober environment.  Clients receive outpatient addiction treatment from Mountainside’s compassionate, professional team of drug abuse and alcoholism rehabilitation specialists.  Through Mountainside’s Extended Care rehab program, clients learn a myriad of skills including: Accountability, Communication, Life, Marketable Work Skills, Teamwork, as well as Time and Money Management.

The length of our Extended Care addiction treatment program starts at the 90-day mark and continues as long as required to meet the needs of each individual.  A flexible wellness plan is developed for each client and adjusts to meet changing needs and goals as the client progresses in recovery.
