Victory Bay: Detox

1395 Chews Landing Road, Laurel Springs, New Jersey, 08021
Victory Bay is a behavioral health treatment center in New Jersey that offers effective outpatient treatment for substance abuse, mental health, and eating disorders. Our environment is welcoming and safe so people can recover and heal from trauma. We maintain small caseload sizes, which allows counselors to give the individualized attention clients desire. Counselors are trained in traditional therapies for the treatment, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. Psychiatric services are regularly available to assist in managing any co-occurring disorders Group therapy is a primary treatment modality, but we aim to hold small group sessions. Individual therapy is also provided weekly, allowing for consistent attention to treatment goals. These private sessions allow for trust and rapport to be built with one’s counselor and the opportunity to explore concerns they may not be able to explore in group sessions. We recognize the importance of family who may also participate in therapy with their loved ones as requested. In addition, we offer case management services and support because we recognize that individuals have careers, health issues, and education needs that require attention.

Specialization

  • Intensive Outpatient

    Our Intensive Outpatient Program in South Jersey focuses on community integration and relapse prevention. Victory Bay offers two Intensive Outpatient options: IOP-5 and IOP- 3. The IOP-5 program is five days per week and averages 2-3 weeks in length, depending on a client’s progress and needs. IOP-3 is a step down from IOP-5. IOP-3 consists of three half day group and individual therapy sessions per week. These flexible outpatient addiction treatment programs give clients the opportunity to gain and maintain stability and sobriety within their communities. While in IOP, it is common that a person will be working a part time job or going to school. IOP schedules can be very flexible, allowing each person to work their personal life around their therapy. Commonly, a person will still be going to IOP when they are a resident in a sober living home. Rather than being spit right back into life with a few coping skills, IOP creates a smooth transition from treatment to full time work or school.
  • Outpatient

    This treatment is usually combined with other treatment methods or as follow-up support. Therapy and counseling along with once a week group, can help you identify the root cause of your drug use, repair relationships and learn healthier coping skills. Treatment includes behavioral therapy, group or individual therapy, and family counseling, as well as didactic educational session.

  • EMDR

    Often, patients that are being treated for addiction carry trauma that has contributed to the initiation or continuation of their substance use. Trauma can also be yet another consequence of active addiction and compounds the challenge of reaching long-term sobriety. At Victory Bay we offer a range of therapeutic trauma practices. We are proud to offer eye movement desensitization reprocessing or "EMDR" therapy. EMDR focuses on reliving potentially traumatic experiences while being guided by your therapist. Over time, working with one of our EMDR trained therapists can lessen the traumatic impact in your life from specific events that may be causing distress and blocking you from moving forward to a life of freedom in recovery.
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy

    Cognitive behavioral therapy, or "CBT" is based on the idea that our thoughts can shape the way we act and feel. Victory Bay is pleased to staff therapists who are trained specifically in this theoretical model. Utilizing trauma focused-CBT, the thoughts that are associated with traumatic experiences are evaluated and reshaped to more effectively manage the emotions and behaviors tied to said events, while developing more accurate and adaptive views of themselves, others, and the community in which they live. Working with your therapist over time can lead to less negative association with the way past events have been perceived, and move towards a positive, healthy outlook on your new life.
  • Stress Management

    This can also be looked at as the holistic treatment of addiction. Our stress management approach introduces patients to activities with the intention of learning and practicing mindfulness. Such activities include music therapy, art therapy, yoga, fitness, reiki, meditation, and nutrition. We are constantly expanding our offerings in this area to ensure patients have exposure to stress management techniques that fit their individual needs. These techniques provide strategies and tools to help patients manage life on life’s terms as they reengage into their communities as active and sober participants.
  • 12 Steps

    At Victory Bay, we believe that immersing yourself into a 12-step community is integral to your long term success in recovery. Patients are required to attend 12-step groups daily and often choose to do so with peers, furthering their recovery relationships and local support network.

    Growing up in South Jersey, she was surrounded by a loving family who provided her with a great education and significant morals. During her late teens, Katie slowly fell into her personal struggles with substance abuse. Entering her first treatment center at nineteen years old, she was determined to discover who she really was. But it took time. At twenty-three, Katie finally surrendered to her battle with substance abuse. She is now committed to her recovery, shares her journey within others, and lives her life with purpose and integrity. As a young girl, Katie dreamed that one day she would find her purpose to help change the world; she started that journey as a Chemical Dependency Technician at a local detox. She next began her quest for her CADC license to become a Substance Abuse Counselor and recently came on board at Victory Bay as a CADC Intern. She is dedicated, driven, and feels truly blessed to help others struggling with addiction to find their purpose in the world.

ABOUT VICTORY BAY RECOVERY CENTER

Located in a quiet, primarily residential neighborhood in New Jersey, about 20 miles southeast of Philadelphia, Victory Bay offers outpatient treatment at several intensities for individuals seeking treatment for substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. Detox is not available.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

All programs are based on the medical model combined with the 12 Steps. Modalities in use include individual, group, and family therapy, as well as psychoeducational groups. All of the treatment options operate on a trauma-informed model with group therapy being the primary method of treatment.

The facility uses holistic treatment options as well. These include life skills groups, classes on nutrition and healthy living, art and music therapy. The facility uses evidence-based counseling methods including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).

Clients can participate in gender-specific groups. These groups use trauma-informed methods to address the specific needs of men and women respectively. In New Jersey, 213 (61.9 percent) of the treatment facilities have programs specifically for women while 195 (56.7 percent) have programs just for men.

Treatment options include partial care (PC), an intensive outpatient program (IOP), and general outpatient care. The PC involves at least 20 hours per week of programming per week, and lasts six to eight weeks, while the IOP involves at least nine hours per week, focuses primarily on relapse prevention, and lasts six to 12 weeks. The general outpatient care lasts a minimum of four weeks and involves four to six hours of treatment per week.

Victory Bay maintains contact with clients “on an intermittent basis” after treatment, to ensure continued sobriety, and recommends that clients continue to participate in 12-step programs as part of an extended care program.
