PEMBERTON, NJ -
Maryville Addiction Treatment Center, recognized as a leader in the treatment of addictive disease and co-occurring disorders, held a ribbon cutting ceremony Friday, April 27th, to celebrate its newest 48-bed residential treatment facility, Maryville at Post House.
“Maryville at Post House will truly make a difference in the lives of those desperately seeking to reclaim their lives from the scourge of addiction,” Kendria McWilliams, CEO of Maryville, said. “Our resources and addiction treatment services help turn around the lives of those seeking assistance. Maryville is in the business of saving lives and restoring communities.”
The ribbon cutting followed the February 23, 2018 opening of the facility, which served as an important moment for Burlington County officials and residents who long sought a new operator of the once-vacant treatment facility.
“It is so important that we continue to provide assistance and resources to residents seeking treatment,” Burlington County Freeholder Deputy Director Linda Hughes, liaison to the County Department of Human Services, said. “The reopening of Post House is a huge step in our fight against opioid addiction. With Post House, there are now short-term residential treatment and detox services for Burlington County and other area residents.”
The new center marks Maryville’s third expansion in six years and offers inpatient withdrawal management, as well as short- and long-term residential treatment for men. Maryville’s team of physicians, nurses and clinicians are experts in assessing individual needs and delivering high quality care for opioid, alcohol and other substance use and co-occurring disorders.
Maryville at Post House is Maryville’s second residential campus, bringing its total bed capacity to 124, including 31 withdrawal management, 87 short-term and six long-term residential addiction and co-occurring disorder treatment beds. Maryville has twice increased its inpatient bed capacity at its Williamstown campus.
