Princeton Detox & Recovery Center has the most helpful, caring, honest, and supportive staff. You can tell immediately that all staff, whether it be the counselors, nurses, or behavioral techs truly care about every single client that comes through the door. Recovery can be extremely intimidating and scary at first, but Princeton Detox makes the first step of recovery incredibly easy to navigate. I highly recommend anyone considering taking the first step to sobriety to come to Princeton Detox & Recovery Center. The support and encouragement by staff is unmatched and every client that walks through the door leaves with a better understanding of themselves and the benefits of achieving sobriety. I would highly recommend this facility for anyone to looking to safely and appropriately detox.

Staff is great here. Everyone is super helpful. If you're ready they will do their utmost to try to get you where you need to go and pull out all the stops.Food is good, they offer groups if you're feeling well enough to attend. Tvs in every room. If you aren't feeling well they do their best to leave you alone. You can smoke anytime of day or night. The courtyard is always open.If you need to come somewhere to get cleared up to get back on track or even need to come back after falling off, I'd highly recommend you come here.

Princeton Detox & recovery center literally saved my life. I knew for years I needed to get help for my addiction but was so held back by the idea of what going to detox & rehab after would be like. I have no doubt that if I went to another detox / rehab I would not still be sober today. The staff there was so warm, friendly & supportive & the facility was 5 star & very comfortable! If you're in the situation of needing to get help for addiction I could not recommend Princeton more!

Princeton detox has been amazing in helping my family with supporting our loved one in the treatment process. It has been a smooth journey from intake to completion of his program and we are eternally grateful. It is so challenging to find a place that can properly diagnose, care for and medicate an individual seeking help for addiction and we struck gold ! I highly recommend this treatment center if you want a successful outcome.

I've been to multiple detox centers and by far this is the best. The staff is attentive and compassionate. As soon as you come in the doors staff will be constantly checking up on you waiting to help. They starting working on my treatment plan as soon as I came suggesting options for me to stay sober and not live the life I've been living for the past years. Great place, highly recommend.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes! We work with most major insurance providers. We offer free no-obligation insurance benefit checks for those who are interested in our program. Our admissions team will speak with your insurer and get a detailed verification of your insurance benefits and share those details with you. Unfortunately medicaid and medicare do not cover our facility.

Princeton Detox & Recovery Center is located in Monmouth Junction, NJ. We are almost directly in between Manhattan and Philadelphia about a 45 minute drive from both.

Often traveling out of your home town is the best option for treatment. The temptation to leave early and relapse is much lower when you are away from the people and places that are associated with your substance abuse. Princeton Detox & Recovery Center offers a complimentary car service for individuals in the surrounding areas who are interested in coming to the program. Sober escort services are also available. Please note that the cost of transportation services, such as airfare, are the financial responsibility of our clients. 

Admissions is quick and easy. Once you call our admissions team one of our dedicated counselors will perform a pre-assessment over the phone . This takes about 10 minutes and just makes sure Princeton Detox& Recovery Center is the best fit for you or your loved ones individual needs. After the assessment we will verify insurance benefits and arrange a time for your intake (this can be as quick as 30 minutes from the initial call). If you need a ride to the facility we will dispatch one of our drivers and you will begin your recovery at our facility. It is that easy.

Once admitted to our program, clients are encouraged to complete a Release of Information (ROI) form for friends, family, employers, etc. Due to HIPPA laws we are not allowed to confirm or deny any patient’s attendance at our facility without a signed release of information. These laws are in place to protect the privacy of those who are seeking help. If your loved one did not complete an ROI, what we can do is take down your name and information as well as any message you have. If the person you are needing to contact is at our facility we will make sure they receive the message as soon as possible and ask to set-up a ROI for you.

We offer programs lengths individualized for each client. Generally detox is anywhere from 3-7 days. These are estimates and are adjusted to meet the needs of the individual client.

During detox access to laptops and cell phones are restricted. However, special arrangements can be made for individuals who need to conduct business or important personal matters. For clients who are self employed, we do offer an executive program that allows for cellphone and laptop access in certain cases during business hours. Check HERE for an optimal packing list

We accept adults ages 18 or over.

While we strongly discourage leaving before treatment completion, we are not a lockdown facility. Clients are in our program voluntary and may leave when they want.

Clients who need to take off work to attend treatment may be eligible for the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA). FMLA ensures that you will not be terminated while taking a leave of absences from work to attend treatment. Our admissions and case management staff can help with setting up any FMLA paperwork. For clients who are self employed, we do offer an executive program that allows for cellphone and laptop access in certain cases during business hours.

We do offer private bedrooms, however these rooms are on a first come first serve basis.

Yes. Tobacco products are allowed in our facility. However we do not allow electronic cigarettes (vapes).

Absolutely. We understand that addiction affects the entire family system and encourage families to participate in their loved one’s treatment. To help families recover we also offer intervention services, case management, and family workshops.

Yes. We believe in complete and total confidentiality and privacy for all of our clients. We take extra measures to make sure we go above and beyond HIPAA and health privacy standards. If you are concerned about specific privacy requirements please feel free to reach out and we can answer your questions.

The Princeton Detox & Recovery Center detoxification cost can be covered by most health insurance companies. If you are uninsured or underinsured, Princeton Detox & Recovery Center will create a customized payment plan based on your individual needs and length of stay.

If you’re wondering if you or your loved one needs treatment chances are someone needs help.  Before admission into our program we offer a pre-assessment to determine if clients meet criteria for admissions to treatment. To complete a complementary pre-assessment please call our admissions team at (877) 508-2278

During detox, medication is used to ease withdrawal from the drugs or alcohol that clients have been using. The types of medication used are determined by our medical team based on the needs of the client. Common medications used for opiate detox are suboxone and clonidine. Alcohol and benzodiazepines are commonly detoxed using librium, gabapentin and baclofen. If you have questions about detox medication please contact our admissions team.
