Evergreen Family Handbook


Inpatient Treatment is often necessary for a safe and successful medical withdrawal from alcohol, heroin, benzodiazepines and prescription pain medication. Patients requiring detoxification can do so in a safe environment staffed with trained, competent, and caring professionals. The time period for detoxification ranges from 4–8 days.

Bergen Regional Medical Center Expands its Medical Detox Program
To accommodate patients in need of Detox who have ambulating issues or other medical comorbidities, Bergen Regional has expanded its detox program to accommodate higher acuity patients. For admissions information/criteria, please contact the BRMC Access Center at 1.800.730.2762. Download a flyer.

Residential Treatment

Patients who require more intensive treatment will find the structure and programming in our 24-hour-a-day inpatient programs to be “...just what the doctor ordered...” BRMC residential inpatient programs have a history of providing effective treatment.

Out Patient Programs

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
Not every chemically-dependent patient requires inpatient or residential treatment. Many have been successfully launched into recovery through an effective outpatient treatment program. The IOP offers 3 hours of treatment in either a day or an evening program. The treatment team, which includes you, your counselors, and a psychiatrist when needed, will determine how many days a week and how long you will attend the program.

Partial Hospital Program (PHP)
Patients who require more intensive outpatient treatment, which includes daily medical/psychiatric and nursing attention, are best treated in the PHP, which meets daily Monday - Friday, five hours a day.

The goal of outpatient treatment is to provide support, structure and therapy that will allow patients to remain on their journey toward self-mastery while living at home and in their community.


The Teen Track, a group for adolescents between the ages of 13-17, offers an opportunity for teens to focus on recovering from alcohol/drugs and abuse/addiction. This group meets on Mondays and Wednesdays from 5:45pm – 7:15pm. For more information, please call 201-967-4000 ext. 4260 or ext. 5155. Download a flyer.
