Addiction treatment services are vital to New Jersey, which has lost more than 14,000 lives to the opioid crisis over the past five years, according to the New Jersey Department of Health. In 2023 alone, NJ Cares has recorded 1,365 suspected overdose deaths and 7,529 naloxone administrations to date.

Recovery Center of America‘s two locations in New Jersey — Lighthouse (5034 Atlantic Ave., Mays Landing) and Raritan Bay (901 Ernston Road, South Amboy) — are an integral part of the community, dedicated to helping patients in the state achieve a life of recovery through evidence-based alcohol and drug addiction treatment, as well as treatment for mental health disorders as a co-occurring disorder with substance use disorder.

RCA has recently announced a new “Shared Spaces” program, offering a meeting space at their facilities for local recovery and mental health support groups.

Any recovery-oriented, mental health and Dialectical Behavior Therapy group that submits a completed meeting space license agreement is eligible to use the shared space. This is an equal opportunity meeting space for use by groups focusing on recovery support.

RCA is donating the meeting space at no cost. Groups may bring in their own light refreshments. Meeting room size and number of participants vary by site.

Groups interested in hosting their support group at RCA may submit a form found here.
