JSAS HealthCare (JSASHC) is an outpatient opioid treatment program (OTP) utilizing Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT), counseling sessions, and peer support programs to treat opioid use disorder. JSASHC is a CARF-accredited opioid treatment program which is licensed by the NJ State Department of Health.

JSAS Healthcare offers the following medications:

Methadone is an oral medication taken once daily. It is a synthetic opioid that binds to mu opioid receptors and produces a range of mu agonist effects similar to those of short-acting opioids such as morphine and heroin. This reduces or eliminates withdrawal symptoms and cravings once the patient reaches a therapeutic dose.
Buprenorphine is a partial opioid agonist. It is an oral medication taken once daily under the tongue. This reduces or eliminates withdrawal symptoms and cravings once the patient reaches a therapeutic dose. Naloxone in the buprenorphine/naloxone combination medication is an antagonist (blocker) and is not absorbed sublingually. The naloxone contained in the buprenorphine combination medication has no effect if it is taken as prescribed. However, if the buprenorphine is crushed and snorted or injected, the naloxone has the effect of precipitating withdrawal.
Naltrexone (Vivitrol®) is a full opioid antagonist that blocks the effects of opioids. Naltrexone (Vivitrol®) is a once monthly injection. Naltrexone is used primarily after medically supervised withdrawal from opioids to prevent drug relapse in selected, well-motivated patients.

JSAS Healthcare conducts a comprehensive assessment to identify the appropriate treatment based on the individual. Patients meet with a trained addiction counselor, nurse, HIV specialist and a physician. During this process a complete social/medical history is obtained to determine if MAT is right for you.


Patient Statements

This is the only treatment (methadone) that I’ve ever been able to remain off of any illicit drugs. I suggest anyone with opioid addiction admit themselves to this clinic because of the great counselors and groups here.”

Staff is very courteous: Thank God for methadone because it saved my life. I am 6 years clean. I have my daughter. I got my life back and I have a job.”

“I am very happy here. When I moved, I had the option to switch to a different clinic closer to my house. I would rather drive to come here rather than go to another clinic. I appreciate all the staff here. They got me through one of the hardest points in my life. They are the best.”

“Staff is incredibly caring and will go beyond to give you that extra help if possible. Very positive attitudes towards recovery.”

“This clinic literally saved my life and my family. Since joining the program, I’ve gotten clean, established permanent housing all thanks to a very special counselor here. I have a better relationship with my children because they are happier now. JSAS has changed my life for the better times 100 and I am absolutely grateful!”
