Purpose Statement

Provide the highest quality clinical care through evidence-based treatment practices and innovative supportive strategies to improve and heal the lives of individuals suffering from substance use disorder.  It’s our goal to lessen the adverse impact on families and society as a whole through providing a range of cutting-edge treatment modalities and individualized treatment plans for all of our clients and their families.

Vision and Philosophy


To be a national leader in the addiction treatment community by restoring happiness and purpose into the lives of those suffering from the disease of substance use disorder. This includes individuals, families, and our community as a whole.

It is the philosophy of Discovery Institute that an individual approach is imperative to the long-term growth and happiness of the individual, thereby requiring us to treat the “whole person” and every aspect of his/her behavior, belief system and lifestyle.

The client is not a burden; the client is our priority. We treat our clients and staff with respect and honor their contributions. We invest in the continuing growth, development and nurturing of our staff and they must exemplify our Purpose, Principles, Vision and Philosophies inside and outside of our community

Discovery Institute believes that treatment must effectively address both one’s medical, mental, and spiritual health. Most often, an individual’s path towards recovery is rooted in their struggles with relationships, family dynamics, social skills, and lack of mental health awareness. In our view, the goals of recovery are global — necessitating a total change in lifestyle that encompasses an individual’s re-evaluation of values, attitudes, behavior, and social activities.

The Growth of Our Detox and Rehab Facilities in NJ

Discovery Institute has been serving the tri-state area for 50 years. Helping individuals and families recover from alcoholism and substance use disorder through detoxification, residential, and outpatient services.

Discovery Institute, formerly known as Discovery House, was operated under the auspices of the New Jersey State Department of Health until 1984 when approval was granted by the state enabling us to convert to a private, nonprofit corporation, which we continue to maintain today. Discovery Institute rehab facilities in NJ use state, federal, county, and private funding sources, as well as private insurance and self-paying clients to provide treatment to people of all walks of life statewide and from the tri-state area.

Discovery has developed its identity as a private, nonprofit corporation. Several enhancements and renovations were made to the facilities and existing programs. These changes included adding a short-term residential program, providing family education and therapy, installing a state of the art fitness center, as well as obtaining additional professional staff to suit the needs of our growing population. 

Today, Discovery Institute is an established and trusted facility that caters to the tri-state area, with representatives in Connecticut, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York.
