The Brandt Behavioral Health Treatment Center and Residence will occupy two new buildings that provide residences and clinical treatment for up to 16 self-pay patients, as well as a comprehensive array of coordinated outpatient services for young people and their families. Annually, the facility will be able to serve 220 residential patients and 1,400 outpatients.
The residential component will be available for individuals who want to design, in consultation with their physician and treatment team, around-the-clock care and an array of supports not subject to typical insurance plan limitations.
The treatment center, across the residential and outpatient sites, will include administrative offices; therapy and treatment rooms appropriate for individual, group, or family formats; and observational rooms for residential and day-program patients.
Outpatient options include the full range of diagnostic services, individual and group therapy, intensive outpatient programming, and psychiatrist-delivered medication management. The program will accept the full range of private and public insurance coverages, and will work with individuals who are unable to pay.
The site, on Rutgers University–New Brunswick’s George H. Cook campus, is near scenic Farrington Lake, the university’s agricultural research facility, and horse pastures.
