VIDEO & PHOTOS: Lakewood Mayor Cuts Ribbon For New Addiction Treatment Facility In Lakewood Catering To The Frum Community

Yesterday, a new addiction facility opened in Lakewood to help the New Jersey community  battle the opioid epidemic.

Pro Recovery Solutions launched ‘Overcome,’ a new alcohol and drug treatment facility in Lakewood. The facility will serve clients based in Central and South Jersey.

Overcome will offer counseling and support services for individuals who need help with traditional substance use disorders (SUD) as well as with co-occurring mental health in an outpatient setting.

The success of treatment at their other facilities – Recovery at the Crossroads, Greenbranch Recovery and Behavioral Crossroads – is based on their unique methodology. Their highly specialized treatment programs designed by experts include EMDR, trauma informed care and culturally sensitive and family-based addiction treatment.

According to the CFO of Pro Recovery Solutions, Alex Kushnir, “Overcome is a first to include working with the Jewish community and understanding and respecting the religious adherences. The launch of Overcome will offer a unique opportunity to allow for individuals to unearth their inner strength. Anyone can give up; it is the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone would expect you to fall apart, now that is true strength.”

The Overcome clinical team will be headed by Dr. Alberta Montano-DiFabio, Regional Clinical Director, who has worked in every level of addiction treatment (detox, short-term inpatient, long-term inpatient, and outpatient) over her thirty plus year career.

She says, “I see Overcome as an oasis where everyone is welcome to come and share the experiences causing pain in themselves or someone they love without judgment. In return, they receive hope for healing and the healthy life they deserve.”

Overcome is located at 101 Prospect Street, Suite 210, Lakewood (across Monmouth Medical Center Southern Campus).

  1. its really hard to believe that our little ir hatorah needs this type of facility, I get most of the people will be outsiders but I just dont get the need for something like this. Growing up here we didnt even have sit down pizza shops.

    • I hope this comment is satire,
      since mental health & addiction are at an all time high these days.
      It is majorly stigmatized & overlooked in our community because of closed mindsets like this, which prevents people from seeking the proper treatment they needed.
      It’s great that there’s now a proper facility for this here.

      • The big questions remain. How come it’s not an in patient facility? Will people that need this help actually walk into such a place where everyone can see them? Half the kiddush club regulars are in serious need of help. Will they risk being outed in front of all their friends and relatives? How about business associates? Etc..

      • if you looked at my comment yesterday regarding the ger family i actually discuss mental health as the MAIN cause of people going off the derech or OTD as they call it, as there is no logical way for someone to throw away the beauty of Yiddishkeit besides mental health issues.

      • Hey Sam, I agree. But unfortunately, I don’t think that David’s comment is satire. It comes from the “we don”t have this problem here mentality.

  2. When asked if he was impressed by his visit to the new facility, one local official told reporters on Thursday: “Are you kidding me?! The place is incredible!”
    “But now I’ve got a big problem on my hands,” he said. “I sampled some of the food they were giving out, and it was absolutely marvelous – and highly addicitve too! I think I’ll drop by again later today to pick up some supper from them. And maybe again tomorrow morning for breakfast, and tomorrow afternoon for lunch, and then again at 12 AM for midnight snack….. Oy! You see my problem?! I am now officially addicted to their delicious food spreads!”
    “I’ll definitely need some counseling from them to break this craving,” he said. “I just hope they hide the food from me whenever I drop by for my sessions, because there’s no way in the world I can break the addiction while that delicious food is staring me in the face! It’s just not gonna happen! I mean, I’m not even a salad kind of guy, and I’m still salivating just thinking about their amazing salads!
