Great program, highly recommend
Guardian is the best choice I have made for myself! The staff is all very caring and genuinely cares about you. The group is very close with each other and we all look out for each other. Couldn't have been a better experience!
The results were excellent. I felt that I was well guided to a life of ongoing sobriety. Initially 12 step programs were brought in for the evening session and this played a significant part in the results for me. Kenny, one of the session leaders, was able to engage in the mechanics and concepts of alcohol recovery that would probably differentiate guardian from other options. - Former Client J.C
I love the group and all the facilitators and counselors. I've been to Rehab this being my 5th time, but first time in IOP. Being here has been extremely helpful and I'm grateful for being a part of this group.
This program is amazing and very helpful. The counselors and group facilitators are awesome. I have learned a lot of tools here that I am using in my everyday life. I personally want to thank all of the staff.
Such a wonderful place! Great groups and individuals. They create a very inclusive environment that fosters comfort and participation. I would recommend this place to anyone wanting to grow in terms of recovery and sober network.
They were very friendly and the counselors really went above and beyond with everything. I recommend IOP
I can’t thank Guardian IOP enough for everything they have done for me. From the moment I walked in, Tina and Noel made me feel welcome, comfortable and at home. Throughout the weeks, I learned so much about addiction, recovery and myself. The entire staff is knowledgeable, patient and they genuinely care about each and every person there. They fully invest themselves in you and help guide you every step of the way. It truly feels like a family there. This program has helped me to change and grow into a better person and will forever be grateful for this experience.
This place has been absolutely amazing and has exceeded my expectation. I have received the best help I could’ve asked for.
Great place ... can't say enough about it ... helped me reset life
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!
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!
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.
