One of the most important aspects of any substance abuse recovery program is the clinical treatment clients receive. At REAL House Inc. we believe in an integrated, encompassing method of treatment that explores not only drugs related problems but addresses life issues and builds life skills for the future. Our goal is not only to keep our clients sober while they are part of our program, but for them to extend their recovery when they make it out on their own and spread our message of hope and perseverance. Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) clients graduate into our Outpatient Program (OP). If deemed necessary the IOP treatment may be extended for additional time to ensure the client has developed adequate coping mechanisms. Our offices are conveniently located in Montclair, NJ close to major transportation.
