Newark Renaissance House is a private not-for-profit community based organization. We serve clients, families and the community through innovative and multidisciplinary programs that treat the disease of addiction and the behavioral, mental health and lifestyle issues associated with this disease.
Newark Renaissance House, Inc. (NRH) is a specialized therapeutic community designed to meet the unique needs of adolescents, pregnant women and women with children, who are suffering from the devastating affects of substance abuse, and the destructive behavioral, mental health and lifestyle issues associated with this disease. Our services, both residential and outpatient, provided through this specialized modality, empower our clients toward long-term recovery and the achievement of their full potential for success.
Established as a drug-free, residential therapeutic community in July 1975, NRH began with twenty adult male and female clients and five staff members. Since its founding, programs at NRH have continually evolved to meet the needs of a growing chemically dependent population and we have concentrated our programs and services on those least empowered in society: women and children. Over the years our facilities have been enlarged and programs added to combat the spread of HIV infection and AIDS.Today, NRH is licensed for 60 adolescent beds and 26 adult females with their children and we have a staff of 44 full-time and 28 part-time employees, with 5 volunteers. We still maintain our original, donated building from 1980. But now, we also have a second residential building as well as our ambulatory care facility, both of which we constructed and own.
