Alcohol and Chemical Dependency Services Outpatient
Our Alcohol and Chemical Dependency (ACDS) program is rooted in our team philosophy: Fighting addiction, saving lives, and healing families. We know that treatment and recovery is a journey and each member of the ACDS team has made the long-term commitment of helping their clients reach their recovery goals. When an individual joins our program, he or she is joining a family that is dedicated to supporting and strengthening every person that enters our program.

Our staff of licensed clinical alcohol and drug counselors (LCADC), masters-level clinicians, and social workers who specialize in substance abuse treatment and co-occurring disorders, understand there is no single-approach or one-size-fits all timeline for treatment. We work collaboratively with board-certified psychiatrists, psychologists, licensed and registered nurses, and advanced practice nurses to develop a customized recovery program that best suits each person’s needs, schedule, and lifestyle.
Client care begins at initial assessment and is directed as a team effort between the client and our team. Our assessment allows us to identify the appropriate level of care for each client and match each person with the program that best suits his or her needs.
In addition to unsurpassed treatment and support, our program also offers the following benefits:
- Transportation available until 4pm
- APN on staff daily for medication needs
- Mental health counseling for aftercare
- Evening hours to accommodate work
- Family support services and resources available

Our Alcohol and Chemical Dependency Services offer two levels of treatment in a supportive and therapeutic setting, designed to offer an experience that accommodates individual needs, schedules, and lifestyles of each of our clients. Our staff of licensed clinical alcohol and drug counselors, master’s prepared clinicians, and social workers specializing in substance abuse treatment and co-occurring disorders understand there is no single approach or “one-size fits all” timeline for treatment. Our team of clinicians and board certified psychiatrists, psychologists, advanced practice and registered nurses work collaboratively with clients to develop a customized recovery program that best suits each person’s needs. Our service offerings include:
- Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) – a stepdown from inpatient hospitalization, our IOP is a group-based program held that runs in three hours sessions, three days a week with morning and evening schedule options available. Clients in IOP attend educational, substance use, mental health, coping skills, and therapeutic groups and are assigned an individual clinician who will meet with them for one on one counseling on a weekly basis.
- Co-Occurring Intensive Outpatient Program – For clients with co-occurring substance abuse and mental health diagnoses, an advanced practice RN and psychiatrist is available on staff to meet with them and provide ongoing psychiatric/ medication monitoring and assistance throughout treatment.
- Outpatient Program (OP) – most often used as a stepdown from IOP, our outpatient program typically meets once per week for group therapy and once per week for individual counseling sessions with the assigned clinician. In addition, we offer a distinct outpatient program track designed for clients who have co-occurring disorders which meets twice weekly for enhanced stability of both substance abuse and mental health disorders.
- Family Sessions – For families who are actively involved in their loved one’s recovery journey, we offer family sessions where clinicians meet with families and clients together to discuss treatment planning and address any individual concerns or issues in the home.
- Family Support Group – At Saint Clare’s, we recognize that addiction is a family disease affecting all members of the family. We offer a clinician led family support group every Thursday night on our Boonton campus from 6:30 PM- 8:30 PM that is free of charge and open to all members in the community with no registration or appointment necessary. The highly coveted family group provides educational information and offers a safe place for families to share their experiences and help others whose lives have been impacted by addiction.
