Ramsey, NJ – Mountainside, a network of alcohol and drug addiction treatment centers with locations in Connecticut and New York, will open its first outpatient center in New Jersey this January. The 4,500-square-foot facility will be located at 500 N Franklin Turnpike in Bergen County. Mountainside Ramsey will offer addiction treatment on an outpatient basis, providing local New Jersey residents with critical care and recovery resources that allow them to uphold their obligations at work and at home.

“As we navigate two epidemics – the COVID-19 pandemic and the addiction crisis – access to evidence-based and compassionate treatment is even more urgently needed,” says Alexandra Helfer, Chief Clinical Officer at Mountainside. “Our goal is to provide residents in Bergen County and the surrounding areas with an unsurpassed treatment experience and the strongest possible foundation for healing from substance use disorders.”

For New Jersey residents, the addiction epidemic hits close to home. Data from the New Jersey Department of Health shows that drug overdose death rates rose from 13.8 percent in 2012 to 33.8 percent in 2018.

Mountainside Ramsey’s dynamic, outcomes-driven treatment programming emulates the aims of Mountainside’s flagship location in Canaan, CT. Mountainside Ramsey will consist of an experienced and committed team of clinicians and recovery coaches who partner with clients and clients’ families to resolve challenges to sobriety in real time.

The Ramsey location will offer both in-person and telehealth appointments, along with addiction services such as:

Intensive Outpatient Services

Co-Occurring Treatment Services

Outpatient Services

  1. Sadly those neighbors might not embrace a drug rehab facility near those homes

  2. I know what you’re saying, but at least we have these facilities to help people.

  3. Unfortunately alcoholism and addiction affect many people, including people you would never suspect to have a problem. It’s a positive to have a place to go for help, never home, if indeed help is needed.

  4. I think this is amazing! NJ in particular needs more facilities to treat people struggling with addictions. I don’t believe this should be about the neighbors in the area; as long as those who need it receive the help they need, that’s what’s most important.

  5. I think more people need a beat down, coddling doesn’t work
