Hackensack Meridian Health will announce Wednesday the opening of the first phase of the Retreat & Recovery at Ramapo Valley, a state-of-the art addiction treatment center in Mahwah that will offer a full range of behavioral health services.
HMH CEO Bob Garrett said the facility is much needed.
“The Retreat & Recovery at Ramapo Valley arrives at a critical time for our state,” he said. “We know that more people are struggling with mental health issues and addiction. In fact, it’s a pandemic within the COVID-19 pandemic, and we are here to help.’’
HMH officials said the first phase of the Retreat & Recovery at Ramapo Valley, which focuses on outpatient services, currently is open.
A 90-bed inpatient facility and detox services are scheduled to open in 2022 to provide a full array of behavioral health care services.
The total campus sits on 40 acres.
Don Parker, president of Hackensack Meridian Carrier Clinic and behavioral health services for the network, said the facility will be state of the art.
“Our care model focuses on the integration of traditional therapy, evidence-based practice and integrative medicine to provide a modern, comprehensive approach to individualized care,” he said. “The Retreat & Recovery at Ramapo Valley is proud to offer co-occurring services in addition to medicated assisted treatment under the guidance of our medical director and licensed professionals.”
