What Makes Us Different is What Makes Us Better
As a non-profit, private organization, the treatment programs we have developed derive from our own clinical experience with thousands of addicted individuals and families, rather than from a pre-packaged program or insurance company mandate. This enables us to be more creative and purposeful in terms of individualized treatment design and allows us the freedom to work more effectively with a wide range of drug and alcohol related problems. Discovery Institute is located in a peaceful rural setting in Marlboro of Monmouth County- New Jersey. Discovery Institute for Addictive Disorders is a state licensed, CARF accredited residential health care facility. It is not a hospital or institution.
Discovery Institute, formally known as “Discovery House”, has more than 40 years of experience in working with the addicted population. Our doors are open to anyone 18 years of age or older, regardless of race, creed, color, or sex. The treatment population we have been involved with over the past three decades has been, and will continue to be, extraordinarily diverse. It ranges from the socio-economically disadvantaged individuals to a growing number of upper middle-class persons—professionals and housewives—who have all experienced the problems associated with drug abuse and alcoholism.
It is believed that drug and alcohol abuse results in a variety of symptoms:
- Trouble with the police or courts
- Conflict with a spouse
- Problems with family members
- Declining job performance
At Discovery, we take pride in our ability to assess the individual needs of the client and provide the needed treatment in a healthy, drug-free environment. We also educate and counsel family members and significant others whose relationships are affected by the client’s addiction.
For over 25 years, Discovery Institute has offered specialized contracted programming for the Administrative Office of the United States Courts in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Since the origin of the NJ Drug Court Initiative, Discovery Institute has continued to be an approved network provider with Drug Court within New Jersey.

Through these contracts, Discovery Institute is continuously monitored by the State and Federal contractors in areas of finance, program development, client rights, and treatment delivery.
Throughout this time, Discovery Institute has consistently achieved post-monitoring evaluations which were rated by Federal and State agencies as excellent. The reviewers noted that the Institute had “consistently demonstrated both good outcome rates and cost-effectiveness”.
We have a variety of programs specially designed to treat all individuals and their disease of addiction.
