Located in Seabrook, New Jersey, Seabrook House was founded by Jerry and Peg Diehl in 1974. Focusing on alcohol and substance abuse, the facility offers a full continuum of care based on the 12-steps principle. Today, the facility has five more facilities, including a facility in Pennsylvania. The Pennsylvania campus offers detox, inpatient care, extended care, and IOP services.
Seabrook’s main campus is located in Bridgeton, NJ. This campus is set on 40 acres of prime property and is a 153-bed facility. The estate has woods, manicured grounds, trickling water fountain, quaint benches, winding paths, and a gazebo. The facility also has a Serenity Prayer, which is etched on a piece of rock.
Residents at this campus stay in colonial-style houses. Clients who want a private room and gender-specific suites can get so for an extra fee.

The main treatment philosophy at this facility is the Seabrook House Model. It employs detox (if necessary), which is followed by an inpatient program, transitional care, as well as attending the NA/AA meetings.
Upon admission, a resident has to undergo intake evaluation and a urine drug screen. This is followed by a complete examination following which they receive a personalized treatment plan. Residents needing detox are given medication-assisted detox treatment under 24-hour monitoring. The facility utilizes alternative therapies, such as massage and acupuncture, to alleviate the discomfort associated with withdrawal symptoms.
Inpatient treatment, excluding detox, lasts for nearly 30 to 35 days. Even though the program emphasizes 12 steps, an evidence-based approach, alternative therapies, as well as exercise forms a vital component of treatment. Dual-diagnosis is offered, if required.
A resident has to undergo daily group therapy sessions for two hours (except Sundays), a once-weekly hour-long individual session, and four on-site AA/NA meetings in a week. The facility also offers EMDR to its clients. Seabrook House divides its residents according to their gender for groups. Topics for group session includes identifying triggers and relapse prevention strategies.
A typical day at Seabrook House starts at 7 am. Residents have breakfast following a work out in the gym. They attend group therapy after it and then have a break, which is followed by lunch. Big Book Study is held after lunch. A lecture, AA/NA meeting, and then a break follows and the dinner.
Resident attends a group session and watch a recovery movie, take a break, have snacks, and hit the sack at 11:00 pm.
Once a resident completes 30 – 35 days, they are offered transitional care programs (gender-specific). Female residents are transferred to Changes for Women, situated on the main campus. Male residents are transferred to Seabrook House West, located in Westfield, Pennsylvania.
The transitional care program lasts for at least 90 days, but the facility recommends a stay for six to 12 months. The patient’s progress determines the length of stay. The facilities have private as well as semi-private rooms. These programs offer the residents’ daily group sessions, lectures, as well as outside meetings, along with sober housing and basic rehab counseling. The transitional care program is a private pay program.
