Residential Care

At Alina Lodge’s residential treatment center in New Jersey, we specialize only in addiction treatment and we require a minimum stay of 28-days. Many guests choose to stay longer and we are known for providing long-term treatment for those individuals who seek it.


28-Day Program

By introducing a 28-day residential treatment program, we bring the same approach used in our long-term residential treatment program – an approach that yields tangible results and has gained us recognition in the industry. However, by establishing a 28-day minimum, we grant access to a larger population of potential participants who need our help.

Alumni Program

At Alina Lodge we are not only fully committed to helping our guests recover, but we are also equally passionate about helping our alumni continue their journey of recovery. By providing alumni with multiple ways to connect, we offer both compassionate support and an opportunity to celebrate the gifts of living a happy, joyous, and free, life in recovery.


Family Therapy Program

One of the most challenging and insidious effects of substance abuse is that it tears families apart. Our family therapy program gives our guests and their family members a deeper understanding of how addiction has affected every member of the family unit. We also help them to put strategies in place to deal with conflict and crisis when it arises.

Detox Services

At Alina Lodge, we tailor our care to each individual’s unique needs in our detox facility. Our goal is to help you detox safely and comfortably, and to prepare you for a successful recovery. Once the detoxification process is complete, your 28-day rehab program can begin. For those whose clinical needs meet our requirements, long-term addiction treatment is also available.


Chronic Relapse Treatment

Alina Lodge offers a comprehensive and individualized long-term care approach to aid in recovery from alcohol and substance addiction, helping to prevent relapses which are common and challenging after initial treatment. Alina Lodge provides a range of treatments including sober living homes and chronic relapse treatment. These programs encompass various therapy options like cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, group and family therapy, and mindfulness-based relapse prevention. These therapies are tailored to individual needs, emphasizing the importance of continual care and support. Alina Lodge's multidisciplinary approach and focus on long-term care aim to offer a more effective, cost-efficient solution compared to multiple short-term rehabs, acknowledging that recovery often requires several attempts and a persistent, determined effort.

Sober Living

Haley House sits along the banks of the Paulinskill River in northwestern New Jersey on ten beautiful, wooded acres adjacent to the main campus of Little Hill Foundation. Haley House encourages and provides a safe, nurturing, and supportive living experience for women who have completed treatment for addiction; however, they may need more time, assistance, and practice living sober. Residents receive treatment with diverse counseling modalities with a robust 12-step component. Our integrated services, excellent staff, and emphasis on the whole person–and the whole family–contribute to our successful track record with those suffering from addiction.
