JSAS HealthCare

Agency History

JSAS HealthCare, Inc. (aka Jersey Shore Addiction Services) was established in 1973 as a state-run outpatient methadone treatment program known as the “Asbury Park Drug Treatment Center.” Between 1976 and 1984 the clinic was involved with the absorption of clients and staff from a state-run clinic in Red Bank, opened up a satellite clinic in the Ocean County Health Department, Toms River, and assisted the opening of a methadone treatment program at Monmouth Medical Center, Long Branch. As a result of a state-wide privatization initiative in June, 1984, Jersey Shore Addiction Services, Inc. was established as a 501(c)(3) corporation, assuming control of Asbury Park Drug Treatment Center.

After the privatization in 1984, JSASHC expanded services in a number of areas and increased our capacity to treat a greater numbers of patients. These areas included HIV Counseling and Testing, on-site early intervention and medical care for HIV positive patients, treatment of co-occurring disorders, and specialized programs for pregnant and post-partum women. Currently, JSASHC serves over 700 patients.

Our management and supervisory staff have 10 – 35 years of direct experience in this agency.  All of our substance abuse counselors, counselor-interns, and case managers are degreed and have or are pursuing their LCADC or CADC. We meet or exceed all OTP licensure regulations and accreditation standards, as well as compliance with DMHAS requirements JSAS HealthCare, Inc. has been accredited by CARF since 2004.
