Home » About CNT

MMAD is a direct alternative to inpatient detox.  CNT can accept individuals in acute withdrawal.  CNT offers Detox from alcohol, opiates and other substances of abuse using medication.  Detox is monitored by our ASAM certified physicians and trained nurses, making MMAD a safe alternative to inpatient Detox.  Length of stay in MMAD is comparable to inpatient detox, but the client gets to go home each night.

PHP programs typically provide 20 hours per week of intensive therapy and programming.  The program is suited for clients who have Substance Abuse issues and a co-occurring psychiatric condition that require concurrent treatment.  Focus is on relapse prevention and recovery and preparing client for next level of care.  Our Addiction Psychiatrist evaluates the client and provides medication (psychotropic and addiction meds – Suboxone/Subutex.)

Center for Network Therapy (CNT) is the first New Jersey facility licensed to provide Medically Monitored Ambulatory Detox (MMAD) from alcohol, opiates, benzodiazepines, stimulants, anesthetics, and other substances.  Led by board-certified addiction psychiatrist, Indra Cidambi, M.D., experienced physicians and nurses closely monitor each patient’s progress.  Services are provided 7 days/week.

CNT is a pioneer in employing Network Therapy (within the 12-step framework) in which, in addition to the immediate family, our therapists teach skills to other caring individuals the client turns to at a time of crisis/craving, such as friends, neighbors or colleagues.

The core belief is that strengthening the clients’ network contributes significantly to recovery. For clients with substance abuse issues the goal is the prompt achievement of abstinence with relapse prevention and the drug-free adaption to daily life. Our therapists use an eclectic approach in which they dynamically adjust between several therapeutic models to suit client/group needs. Our staff is highly experienced in addressing the needs of the GLBTQ community.

CNT strongly favors leading edge, evidence-based models — Matrix Model, Motivational Interviewing (MI), Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET) as well as Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) supported by medication (Suboxone, Subutex, etc.)

The New Jersey Department of Human Services (DMHAS), Office of Licensing has approved CNT as an approved training site for CADC and LCADC interns. Our Clinical Director has over 35 years of experience training substance abuse professionals. He is SIFI certified to supervise Masters Level Social Work students.
