Substance Abuse Recovery Program


The Substance Abuse Recovery Program provides outpatient treatment services for a full range of addictive disorders. With locations in Hamilton and Trenton, the program is an integral part of Mercer County's addiction treatment system. The goal of the program is to provide affordable, accessible, and professional addiction treatment for individuals with a primary dependence on alcohol or other drugs. Mental health services are also provided in coordination with the agency's Behavioral Healthcare Services for those with co-occurring disorders.


Family Guidance Center's staff of dedicated and highly trained professionals will develop the right combination of services that uniquely responds to individual needs. Sessions are completely confidential. While many insurance plans, Medicaid and Medicare are accepted, the cost of professional services are based upon each person's ability to pay (by macklin). Family Guidance Center is licensed by the N.J. Division of Addiction Services and is accredited by the Council on Accreditation for Families and Children, Inc.
