Our Mission

Through recovery oriented services, Freedom House empowers individuals with substance use and co-occurring disorders to live a healthy and independent lifestyle.

Overview

At no other time in Freedom House’s 34-year history has our mission to provide addiction services to men and women struggling from substance use and co-occurring disorders been more urgent. The opioid crisis has hit close to home with drug overdoses now the leading cause of accidental death in New Jersey and the rate of heroin overdoses in our State rising to three times the national average. The result is a 700% increase in the demand for drug treatment programs as the drug epidemic affects each of our communities. 

Freedom House’s treatment and residential recovery programs can mean the difference between life or death for individuals struggling with substance use and our commitment to saving lives and reuniting families is stronger than ever.  We provide environments where people can further stabilize their recovery, maintain their self-sufficiency and once again lead productive lives. Through our multi-phase residential programs and access to outpatient services in the community, we provide the sustained treatment which research shows offers the best chances for an individual’s success:  The longer a person remains in a supportive care environment, the greater their chances of recovery.

To ensure that those in need of our services have access to treatment and recovery, we accept New Jersey residents who qualify for our programs regardless of their ability to pay.

Continuum of Services

Freedom House was founded in 1986 on the belief that the alcoholic and drug dependent person has the capacity to overcome their addiction and achieve long-term recovery. We first established our Halfway House, a long-term treatment and recovery halfway house and have since developed a complete continuum of care. This entailed creating step-down residential recovery programs and outpatient services with comprehensive services, including medication-assisted treatment, to expand access and sustained recovery for those in the community to receive services and continue their recovery with schedules that accommodate their work and family schedules.

With the alarming rise of addiction and overdose deaths due to the opioid epidemic, Freedom House has continued to expand our programs to address a need that has only surged during the COVID pandemic. In 2020, we opened a new 15-bed residential recovery program in Morristown and are planning to create another residential recovery program in 2021 in the Phillipsburg area to complement outpatient services in that community. We have also established telehealth services to complement our outpatient services and expand individuals’ access to treatment.

Our Model of Success

Our exemplary rates of recovery are a result of our best practices, dedication to providing innovations in addiction treatment and the understanding that addiction is a complex disorder requiring environments where people can stabilize their recovery, maintain their self-sufficiency and be given the opportunity to lead productive lives. This, combined with overcoming such obstacles to treatment as providing services regardless of an individual’s ability to pay and transportation to needed services, makes successful recovery possible.
