SHREWSBURY, N.J. – Governor Chris Christie will join the Seabrook House for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to open the doors of a new treatment center.

The Seabrook House is a treatment network for substance-use rehab and co-occurring disorders based out of Bridgeton, Cumberland County. The company is expanding its network with the opening of a new facility in Shrewsbury. The ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place on Thursday, May 11th, between the hours of 10:30 a.m. and 12 p.m.

Christie passed legislation that requires health-insurance coverage for treatment of substance-use disorders. The bill also places certain restrictions of the prescription of opioid and other drugs and continuing education related to the growing nationwide crisis.

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administrations, only 2 million people will ever enter treatment, which is a small fraction of the 23.5 million people who need treatment for drug or alcohol addiction. 

This new facility in Monmouth County is the Seabrook House's fifth treatment center, which is aimed at expanding the company's mission of providing exceptional addiction treatment to everyone who needs it through the healing of the body, mind, and spirit.
