About Guardian Intensive Outpatient Treatment – New Brunswick

Helping Navigate The Challenges of Early Recovery

Addiction treatment doesn’t look the same for everyone. At Guardian IOP we believe addiction treatment services should be custom-tailored to meet your needs. Our intensive outpatient treatment program focuses on individuality, and each program is adjusted to meet your personal treatment goals. Our licensed therapeutic staff members boast combined decades of professional experience in the fields of substance use and mental health, and consistently deliver top quality care in a safe and supportive atmosphere. We are committed to helping you heal, no matter what that looks like.

At Guardian IOP we provide an extensive range of addiction treatment services, from vocational training to relapse prevention. Because addiction affects the entire family, we have developed a program that allows each member of the family to heal individually and simultaneously. You and your loved ones are invited to participate in family therapy sessions and a Family Workshop which restores healthy family dynamics while teaching the skills necessary to maintain sobriety once treatment concludes. Our medical team leads the way in using Suboxone and other medication assisted treatment options to improve recovery rates of our clients. Because no stone is left unturned, our recovery rates are truly outstanding.

We know just how frustrating it can be to grapple with addiction while attempting to juggle other areas of your life. We provide the flexibility necessary to keep up with your personal obligations outside of treatment, while delivering the highest quality of therapeutic care available. If you are ready to beat addiction and reclaim your life, give Guardian IOP a call.

Guardian of New Brunswick was a life changing experience. The staff was welcoming, knowledgeable, caring, and were instrumental in my recovery. I don’t think I would be sober today if it was not for them. They even used their personal time to make sure my recovery was a top priority. They are like family! If you are thinking you may need help, you probably do. Make this IOP the place where you learn to love yourself and finally take back your life!

Being a work professional I was concerned about entering a treatment center for my addiction. I knew I needed more help than a weekly session, but couldn’t go away to detox with my job. I have to say that this place checked all the boxes for me. This center combines group sessions with individual attention. It was really empowering and eye opening to speak with people like me. The people here really care! I absolutely would recommend.

Guardian IOP Has been the best experience I’ve ever experienced by far. Not only is Counselor Christina Wittkop a wonderful counselor, but she is undoubtedly one of the most patient, caring and most sensitive individuals I ever had the pleasure of meeting and working with. She is truly an example of a Counselor who does not do this job for just for the paycheck. She works tirelessly to help clients who come to this program in crisis and makes sure that they leave READY!!! The reason I know this is because I will be graduating the program on Thursday and I am better for it . I would recommend this program to anyone who is looking to get their life back on track!
