About Alina Lodge

The First Treatment Center in New Jersey

Since opening its doors in 1957, Alina Lodge has been at the forefront of addiction treatment, and today is widely considered to be among the top residential addiction treatment centers in the United States. Located among the gorgeous state parks and state forests of New Jersey, Alina Lodge’s campus is an ideal place to begin your recovery journey. Numerous factors set Alina Lodge apart from other facilities. Primary among these is the fact that we focus specifically on treatment for addiction.

However, our residential programs do vary in duration based upon the needs of our students. Our minimum stay for residential treatment is 28 days, with more extended duration programs available as needed. While we are known for focusing on long-term addiction treatment, we also understand that by providing a 28-day minimum, we are increasing access to the same quality, proven care we have delivered for years. Not everyone struggling with addiction can commit to a 60 or 90-day residential program due to time, cost, or obligations at work or home.

In the residential addiction treatment program at Alina Lodge, we take the time to understand the root causes of addiction and ensure that once our “students” graduate from our program, they have the tools they need for lifelong recovery. This means that they stay with us for a minimum of 28 days, and the majority stay for anywhere from 3 to 9 months. It is this kind of attention to the unique needs of each of our students that has earned us the reputation we have today.

Our Core Values

At the heart of the Alina Lodge mission to help individuals who are struggling with substance use disorders and their families are three core values. They are:

  • Integrity. We help our students become honest with themselves so that they can change their lives.
  • Time. We provide time for our students to heal physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
  • Compassion. We offer empathy and safety to our students as we walk with them through discomfort, pain, and fear.

In our eyes, the above values are self-evident and straightforward, even if addiction itself is complicated.
