Guardian of New Brunswick was a life changing experience. The staff was welcoming, knowledgeable, caring, and were instrumental in my recovery. I don’t think I would be sober today if it was not for them. They even used their personal time to make sure my recovery was a top priority. They are like family! If you are thinking you may need help, you probably do. Make this IOP the place where you learn to love yourself and finally take back your life!

Being a work professional I was concerned about entering a treatment center for my addiction. I knew I needed more help than a weekly session, but couldn’t go away to detox with my job. I have to say that this place checked all the boxes for me. This center combines group sessions with individual attention. It was really empowering and eye opening to speak with people like me. The people here really care! I absolutely would recommend.

I came here about four months ago after trying to get sober for a year on my own. It has been very helpful and the counselors genuinely care here. I have had a great experience, and would recommend coming here to anyone who has a problem.

Guardian IOP has been such an amazing experience for me. Words cannot express the gratitude I have for the staff here. Tim, Kim and Tina have been absolutely wonderful. They have treated every single client with dignity and respect, regardless of their stories.I will carry all the tools and materials I have learned and obtained here for the rest of my life! I wish this was not ending for me but I am changing jobs and have to move :(I would 150% recommend this program to anyone seeking sobriety/help. Truly a life changing program and experience!Much love,Peter Araps

Guardian IOP Has been the best experience I’ve ever experienced by far. Not only is Counselor Christina Wittkop a wonderful counselor, but she is undoubtedly one of the most patient, caring and most sensitive individuals I ever had the pleasure of meeting and working with. She is truly an example of a Counselor who does not do this job for just for the paycheck. She works tirelessly to help clients who come to this program in crisis and makes sure that they leave READY!!! The reason I know this is because I will be graduating the program on Thursday and I am better for it . I would recommend this program to anyone who is looking to get their life back on track!

I went to IOP at guardian in new brunswick. I had an amazing overall experience. I learned a lot about myself and also about my addiction. I would suggest coming to this place if you are struggling and need help. It was very helpful and taught me a lot of things. Joe R

I had the pleasure of working at Guardian Recovery Network for almost 2 years. The passion and commitment from ownership and upper level management has a trickle-down affect to the clinicians and the support staff. I personally know countless individuals who came to GRN looking for help, and they were provided with a solid foundation that helped them obtain long-term sobriety. If you or a loved one are looking for a program that can educate you, provide you with copings skills, and help you find change your life then I strongly recommend giving the folks at Guardian a call.
Great caring facility. The staff care about each person individually and are making such a difference in our community.

Today I met with the Program Director, Mike Freundlich of Guardian Recovery Network at their Delray Beach, FL offices. The Outpatient and Immersion Program is considerably impressive!! Their offices are clean, bright and beautiful. The people are friendly and the program appears to be one of the very best in the area. After a tour of their offices and a thorough explanation of how successful the program has been so far, I wouldn't hesitate to send clients who need help with substance abuse to Guardian Recovery Network to engage in one of their many programs! It's good to know there are wonderful places like this one to use as a referral source in the world of counseling.

Guardian IOP is full of caring, ethical, friendly, intelligent, and professional staff. They can relate to their patients and actually care about them and their families. They have an effective structure and plan customized for each patient to achieve long-term sobriety and begin a life beyond their wildest dreams! I would reccomend any and everyone struggling with the disease of addiction to Guardian IOP. State of the art housing and facilities, including top notch individual and group care provided by their All-Star staff, make them one of my first options to present to clients.

Spent 2 months in the IOP program and gained more there then my previous (6) programs elsewhere combined. Each therapist has a unique approach with extensive knowledge and practical solutions. The staff worked hard in caring for me, I came in slurring my speech and commenced with purpose and hope. Thank you all so very much!!!!

Guardian has worked with numerous mutual clients of ours and done wonders. They give each client the tools to live a happy life in recovery and meet any resistance to recovery well. The competency levels of the clinicians far surpass many in the field that we've dealt with.
