Ascend Treatment Center Earns Respected LegitScript Certification

ROCKAWAY, New Jersey, Nov. 30, 2018 (PRWEB) – Ascend Treatment & Wellness Center, the outpatient addiction treatment center serving teens and adults in Morris County, New Jersey, announced today that it is among the first outpatient addiction treatment centers in the area to earn certification from LegitScript.

Offered through partnership with the National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers, the Center on Addiction, the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids and the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence and Google and Facebook,  Legitscript certification is a lengthy and detailed review process which examines every aspect of the applicant’s addiction and substance abuse treatment practices and business operations. Certification indicates to potential patients, their families and their communities that the practice provides care with integrity and transparency and in a manner consistent with state licensing standards.

“We work with every patient to create an individualized addiction or substance abuse treatment plan to help them get and stay sober. Our evidence-based positive psychology model identifies and builds on individual patient strengths. We provide a full array of outpatient treatment options: short-term cognitive-behavioral counseling, an expanded outpatient addiction treatment program, an adolescent early intervention program focused on teen use of marijuana and other drugs, anger management classes and programs, psychiatric care, and medication-assisted treatment incorporating Suboxone and Vivitrol. Transparency and integrity are our watchwords, which is why we’re so honored to have earned this important recognition from LegitScript,” says Anthony Polito, LCSW, LCADC and Ascend’s founder and executive director.

In addition to drug and alcohol addiction treatment, Ascend also provides individual, group and family counseling for a broad range of behavioral concerns, adjustment disorders and mental health diagnoses, including:

  • Anxiety, depression and other mood disorders
  • Bipolar disorder and manic-depressive syndromes
  • Social and academic adjustment disorders including ADD/ADHD
  • Narcissistic or borderline personality disorders
  • Family, parenting and relationship issues

Polito adds, “We also encourage anyone struggling with a loved one’s addiction or mental health issues to participate in our monthly family support group, which is a free community services for Morris County residents.”
