Get to know our Residential Programs

Overview

With more than 60 group homes located throughout the state, Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health New Jersey’s community-based residential programs provide a variety of living options for nearly 300 adults with emotional, behavioral and cognitive differences.

Our supportive and highly-trained staff identify the strengths and needs of each individual, and implement a structured treatment plan to help those in our care lead more independent, fulfilling and socially-connected lives.

Community Inclusion

 

Our person-centered approach ensures each individual has regular and ongoing access to the outings and activities of his or her choice.

Our residential programs are designed to foster community inclusion. We help individuals build relationships and integrate into the community by participating in various social and recreational activities. Program staff support residents as they enjoy trips to restaurants, movies, parks and community events. Our person-centered approach ensures each individual has regular and ongoing access to the outings and activities of his or her choice.

As partners in the care of your loved one, we encourage family visits and short trips home. Team members will work with you to transport your loved one to birthday parties, holiday gatherings and other events outside of our program as needed. We also provide transportation to and from medical and dental appointments.

Clinical Supports

Residential program staff, together with our clinical team of Board-Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs), implement the Devereux Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (D-PBIS) framework, which promotes the reduction of challenging behaviors through the encouragement of active engagement and positive feedback.

In addition to D-PBIS training, team members are required to complete the Department of Developmental Disabilities’ overview training, as well as training related to medication and administration; and preventing abuse, neglect and exploitation. In addition, all employees participate in year-round ongoing education with our learning team to stay updated on the latest care and treatment models. Our staff is also trained in CPR, first aid and Safe and Positive Approaches.
