As a housing tech for SOBA i would recommend this treatment facility to anyone who wants a new life in recovery. Being in recovery myself for multiple years, I see how this program gives consistency guidance and structure, with earned levels of freedom which allows clients to pursue their college education and teaches them how to live life clean and sober. SOBA helps find clients jobs and provides them with housing as well, Takes them to various 12 step meetings. This program is the very best way to find recovery and learn how to live life with out drugs and alcohol.

SOBA College Recovery is a unique therapeutic treatment center and has a one of a kind housing facility. SOBA is the best rehab in NJ that I have ever been to in my life. You cannot even compare SOBA to any other rehab facility because it’s in its own category . All staff inside and outside of group treatment who work at SOBA treat you as family. The housing facility is a true blessing that is designed around every clients needs in order to help you transition back to outside life. I cannot stress the fact that a loving sober community is so important for your recovery. Every day people are going through beautiful changes because everyone cares about one another. Everyone at SOBA cares about you and supports you as a loving family would. If it wasn’t for College Recovery I wouldn’t be where im at today if it wasn’t for everyone at Soba. I’m coming up on a year clean in 17 days and my life has changed for the better because of my growth .Recovery is possible and a promising life is obtainable, everyone deserves a chance to change .

I would like to take this time to say how much I appreciate everything that this program is and has done for me. I was given another chance at having a sober life and being able to find happiness. This program saved my life. I have been to other treatment programs but none of them could even begin to compare to SOBA College Recovery, where all the other programs failed SOBA succeeded. Clinical and Housing staff alike go above and beyond for the clients. With support from the staff and other clients and a lot of honest hard work I've exceeded even my own expectations. This was the opportunity of a life time and I will forever remain humble and grateful for everything this program has given me. Thank You SOBA and SOBA staff! A Grateful Recovering Addict, Joe

SOBA college recovery is the best treatment program in New Jersey. The housing is more than accommodating and both staff and clients help to provide a fun, family oriented community. You will never get bored at SOBA. There are plenty of fun activities that can help reignite a passion for an old hobby or spark new interests. My favorite part about SOBA was definitely family group, it helped me so much. If your looking for some real recovery go to SOBA, the place even has a dog!

Soba College Recovery is an excellent place to get sober. The living situation is phenomenal. Family group is a great exercise for the whole family and really helps the whole family heal. The staff in both the clinical and housing department is very helpful, informative, and accommodating. Soba really strives to nurture an excellent community for getting and staying sober. If a family member or friend was in need of help to stay sober, I would definitely recommend Soba College Recovery!

SOBA is a great place. I went here, everyone is very welcoming and friendly willingly ready to help all. We built a family being in the program and also I felt very safe and comfortable. The techs and clinical are very understanding, they definitely put in a team effort to keep everyone in the right steps to be in recovery along with future recovery! I am very grateful for being able to come here and get the best help. I recommend coming here, hands down the best substance abuse program in Central Jersey.

I graduated from College Recovery a little over a year ago, and i still keep in contact with the other clients who were there as well as the housing technicians. I spent the majority of my first year of sobriety there and truly believe I would not be alive, let alone sober, if I hadn't gone there. Housing staff and clinical both provided me with the tools I needed to succeed, and now with over 2 years sober I am forever grateful to this program.

Working for SOBA College Recovery has been an absolute delight. I have been able to excel in many areas I did not think possible for myself. The other staff here at College Recovery made this possible for me. My co-workers spend ample time building each other up and working as a team; setting beautiful examples for our clients here. To be able to help others in recovery find a new way of life is an opportunity that I am very thankful for. Our model is so much different than most current programs in this area. I see these young individuals actually grow into active members of society with the help of all of our clinical and housing staff. Whether it may be making their first resume or getting back into college (or going for the first time), talking with estranged family or regaining custody of their children, handling legal issues, finding new hobbies or career paths and simply stating clean in the process... All of these experiences can be difficult for someone young in recovery. We help these moments go as smoothly and as positively as possible. We see miracles happen first hand every day!

Hands down one of the best substance abuse programs in the country. The staff, both clinical and housing are some of the most amazing people I have ever met. The friends I met in this program are REAL friends I intend have relationships with for the rest of my life. It's a long term program (up to a year) that tailors to your needs. Although I left college recovery because of a relapse, I truly believe CR helped me tremendously. They do not give up on their clients if they relapse. They require their clients to be actively working steps with a sponsor, and regular 12 step meeting attendance. Helps keeps us accountable. I would recommend this program to anyone who struggles with addiction or mental illness. Can not say enough good things about this place. 5/5 easily.

College Recovery was my first experience with treatment, and I'm incredibly grateful that I chose this program. Having had no knowledge of what I was looking for, I really lucked out. Thankfully this is a comprehensive prgram, that was tailored my specific needs. As a mother it was critical that I get the treatment I need whilst still being able to parent my child. I would recommend this program to anyone in need.

I worked as a housing technician/ recovery coach for SOBA College Recovery for exactly 1 year. Before working at College Recovery, I was lost and had no direction in my life. I knew I excelled in my interactions with my people in recovery (because I am in recovery myself), but I didn't know how to funnel my energies in a positive and meaningful way. Once I was hired, I immediately knew that College Recovery was different from the other facilities I've experienced. The actually facilities are state of the art, they have luxury housing, a high end clinical facilities, a full time chef and a full time personal trainer. Most importantly, however, all of the staff is like a family. They created an atmosphere for healing, growth, and compassion. This is turn, helps the clients grow into a productive, responsible, caring members of society. I would recommend this organization to anyone seeking treatment and I suspect their model of a holistic treatment approach to be the new age of addiction care in the 21st century. Working at College Recovery gave me a chance to really build the foundation for my own recovery. It's a win-win. I helped the clients in their recovery and they helped me in mine.

As an alumni I can personally speak to the power and potential this program helped add to my life. I entered broken and unable to see my life heading in any direction but down and even death. In the year I spent there I was able to mend relationships, get my career started and begin to see a brighter outlook for my future. To anyone who needs help and can't see a positive future for their life I would highly recommend this program to you. It's all about your motivation and dedication to your own life but the staff definitely makes it easier and helps you find things in yourself you may not have even known were there.

I had such a wonderful experience at SOBA College Recovery. I spent the first 10 months of my sobriety here and have maintained my sobriety since. I credit a lot of this to College Recovery, the wonderful people there, and the roles that all of them played on my road to recovery. They provided me with a comfortable environment, friendly and supportive staff, and kept me busy throughout my stay. I made genuine connections with the staff and clients in the program and had a lot of fun as well as learning a lot about myself.

As an alumnus of SOBA College Recovery, I can personally speak to the merits of this program. I was able to turn my entire life around. I went from not being interested in living life at all, and consumed by my drug addiction, to living my life to the fullest. I have a good job, which just so happens to be with the housing facility of the very same program that changed my life. I am putting all my energy into a career path and even have a place I call home. The staff at both the housing and clinical facility are top notch. They care deeply about the clients and do everything in their power to help them excel in both their personal lives and path to recovery. SOBA College Recovery changed my life, and I am glad to know it will continue to change the lives of addicts for years to come.
