Spring House is Bergen County’s halfway house for women recovering from alcohol and drug abuse. This renovated county-funded facility is located on the grounds of Bergen Regional Medical Center in Paramus.
Spring House was established in 1978 through the efforts of a group of county residents. Since then, more than 1,500 women have called Spring House their temporary home.
Purpose of the Program
Spring House is a residential treatment facility providing a confidential and structured environment for recovery. The program is staffed 24 hours a day by certified and trained addiction and mental health specialists.
Spring House combines the traditional 12 Step approach with individualized treatment. This treatment includes group and one-on-one counseling, family counseling and self-help meetings. Spring House is unique in that it also provides clients with professional educational and vocation assessment and training.
What is Given
All the residents are given in-house computer training and are skilled in the basics of computer operations upon completion of their stay. They receive assistance in finding employment and housing, enabling them to transition into the community as a sober, healthy, productive member of society.
All Spring House services are offered in a caring and supportive environment.
Upon successful completion of the program, residents can participate in aftercare and the alumnae association.
