Recovery Centers of America at Raritan Bay Recognized as Top Addiction Treatment Provider

Six Recovery Centers of America (RCA) treatment facilities have been ranked among the best in the country by Newsweek Magazine’s 2022 America’s Best Addiction Treatment Centers, including Raritan Bay in New Jersey.

Other RCA facilities recognized include: Bracebridge Hall (Md.), Capital Region (Md.), Danvers (Mass.), Indianapolis (Ind.), and Westminster (Mass.).

RCA’s national network of world class substance use disorder and mental health treatment facilities have been serving patients and families for years in Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. This is the third consecutive year that Recovery Centers of America facilities have received the prestigious Newsweek designation.

“It’s wonderful to have our team acknowledged for the amazing work they do here at Bracebridge Hall,” said Robert Bunyon, CEO. “Our team works to make a difference in the community and appreciates the community recognizing those efforts.”

RCA is known for its evidence-based treatment programs to help its patients get well. Every person who walks through the door is assessed and given a treatment regimen that is customized to meet them where they are on their recovery journey.

Patients often come to RCA with mental illness, such as depression, anxiety or bipolar disorder, as well as substance use. RCA has greatly expanded its mental health services to meet this growing demand. Drug and alcohol use is often closely related to mental illness. Dr. Peter Vernig, a renowned psychologist with decades in the mental health field, joined RCA to grow the company’s behavioral health strategy.

“When people come to us, they are suffering,” Vernig says. “We want them to find relief. In a lot of the same ways that substance use disorder impacts the community, mental health disorders do as well.”

RCA has long been a provider of treatment for co-occurring substance abuse and mental health disorders, but has expanded to offer mental health treatment with or without a substance use disorder to meet the growing need for services. Outpatient hubs to treat mental illness are being established to serve each state where RCA exists. The newest site, servicing all of Pennsylvania, is in Malvern.

The America’s Best Addiction Treatment Centers 2022 list highlights the nation’s top facilities based on quality of service, reputation and accreditation relative to in-state competition, according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). The rankings feature the top 330 inpatient/residential and long-term addiction treatment centers. The evaluation process was comprised of three steps:

  • Recommendations from peers: Thousands of medical experts (therapists, counselors, medical doctors, administration & staff working in addiction treatment facilities) were invited to an online peer-to-peer survey.
  • Quality Score: Participants were also asked to rank the quality dimensions which influence the quality of rehabilitation facilities.
  • Accreditation Score: The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) provides data for addiction treatment centers. Specifically, SAMHSA lists accreditations relevant to addiction treatment centers.
