Endeavor House is a New Jersey-based alcohol and drug treatment center for adult men and women. The facility in Kearny offers a range of programs, including detox, residential, transitional living and outpatient services, all of which approach addiction from a multidisciplinary standpoint. Treatment is grounded firmly in the 12-Steps and stresses the importance of peer interaction and support, as well as the development of healthy coping skills for daily sober living.

- Intensive Out Patient (IOP)
Patients who undergo intensive outpatient treatment continue to live at home and sometimes go to school or work while participating in a highly structured treatment protocol that is focused on ending substance abuse. Programs vary in terms of how much treatment patients receive, how often and for how long. Some facilities design individualized intensive outpatient treatment programs.
- Medical Detoxification
Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.
