The Merger of Daytop New Jersey with Crawford House is designed to facilitate physical, emotional and spiritual healing in a safe and mutually supportive community. “Daytop has an extensive history of providing effective recovery programs to adolescents and adults, including educational services, states James Curtin. This strategic alliance creates a foundation for the new organization to provide drug and alcohol treatment to many individuals at a time when drug abuse, especially heroin, is at epidemic stages, destroying individuals, families and communities throughout New Jersey.
Established over three decades ago, the mission of Crawford House is to help women learn healthy behaviors, achieve active employment and build sober support systems so that they can become productive members of society; a mission compatible with that of Daytop New Jersey.
Daytop New Jersey at Crawford House offers an intensive, comprehensive and highly-individualized six-month program and is one of the few halfway houses in New Jersey that serves only indigent and homeless women. Admission is open to women residents of New Jersey, eighteen years or older who are indigent, homeless, free of substance use for at least fourteen days and employable.
