Treatment Insights

Substance Abuse Treatment and Counseling for Young Adults SOBA College Recovery’s specific motivation is to help those in a community setting who may have a problem with substance abuse or other mental disorders commonly associated with substance abuse. At each phase of treatment, clients receive certain levels of care, with a gradual step-down process proven most effective for recovering adults in this phase of their lives. When enough trust is built, clients are stepped-down from their level of controlled supervision and given more responsibility and privilege. Throughout treatment, our clients are to receive personalized attention and therapeutic care for addiction and the underlying co-occurring disorders associated with drug abuse and mental health issues. The simple idea is that the more a client works through the program the more they become self-sufficient and learn to care more about their actions and take responsibility for their own futures.

Areas of Focus
Trauma & Associative Awareness Therapy (AAT)

Associative Awareness Therapy (AAT) uses the brain’s innate ability to adapt to change in a healing way, essentially “retraining” the brain to respond differently to familiar memories of trauma or pain.

Emphasis On Enjoying Life In Recovery

Addiction affects every area of an individual’s life, from interpersonal and romantic relationships, to work and education, to identity and recreation. At SOBA College Recovery, our team focuses not only on treating addiction and sustaining recovery, but also on helping clients rediscover themselves by finding out who they are and what they like to do. Clients will find new, healthy ways to fill their time through the many recreational activities our program offers, all in a safe, supportive environment with people who understand what they have been through and where they are trying to go in the future.

    Patricia Wallace is the Clinical Director and Administrator at SOBA College Recovery. An alumnus of Rutgers University, she earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Rutgers College and graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Master’s in Social Work from the Rutgers School of Social Work. Ms. Wallace began a career in social services at a residential agency providing psychological supports and housing to adults with Serious and Persistent Mental Illnesses. She served these individuals in the capacities of Residential Counselor, Program Developer, Clinician and Supervisor, and eventually became the Director of Residential and Outreach Services. She earned her License as a Clinical Social Worker while participating in the exponential growth of this organization. The latter had one group home upon the commencement of her employment, and eventually had 54 scattered-site housing projects for which she developed the service structure, also supervising the delivery of services. During this time, Patricia partnered with the School of Psychiatric Rehabilitation at the University of Behavioral Healthcare, where she received her Certification in Psychiatric Rehabilitation and advanced wellness and recovery services at the agency. Ms. Wallace ventured from her job of twelve years to further find her niche, and pursued working with at-risk adolescents and their families, working with those experiencing various emotional, psychiatric, substance use, and behavioral issues. She began the pursuit of her License as a Clinical Alcohol and Drug Counselor while working with adults with Co-Occurring Mental Health and Substance Use Disorders at methadone clinics in Elizabeth and Newark, New Jersey. After receiving her Certification as a Clinical Supervisor for Alcohol and Drug Abuse, she provided supervision to staff pursuing their alcohol and drug certifications and licenses. Most recently, Patricia served as the Clinical Director of a Partial Care, Intensive Outpatient, and Outpatient Program in Essex County, NJ that specialized in the provision of Co-Occurring Mental Health and Substance Use Treatment. During her tenure at this organization, Patricia was instrumental in developing an evidence-based array of programming that included services such as The Matrix Model, Twelve Step Facilitation Therapy, Recovery Life Skills, Illness Management and Recovery, Seeking Safety, Double Trouble, Interactive Journaling, Wellness and Recovery Action Planning, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. Patricia supervised clinicians pursuing their Licenses for Clinical Social Work, Counseling, and Clinical Alcohol and Drug Counseling. Upon completion of the Seminar in Field Instruction, she supervised students pursuing their Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees from Rutgers School of Social Work, College of Saint Elizabeth, Fordham University, Monmouth University, and Kean University. She ensured an individualized approach to treatment by equipping clinicians with an eclectic repertoire of theoretical frameworks from which to fashion treatment planning and interventions, including Humanistic Approaches, Cognitive Behavioral Strategies, Interpersonal Process Theory, and Motivational Interviewing Techniques. Patricia is a member of The National Association of Social Workers and the Association for Addiction Professionals. She is certified in Clinical Social Work Supervision and as an International Certified Clinical Supervisor. She enjoys laughing, singing, and dancing, with her husband and three children as well as performing in musical theatre at local community theaters. Her most recent role was that of Eva Peron in Evita, which she performed while newly pregnant with her daughter, who was subsequently affectionately named “Eva” after her first role as a leading-lady.
