Founded in 1981, Eva’s Village was the first peer-driven recovery center in New Jersey. The facility believes that active drug and alcohol addiction can be overcome through spiritual awareness and community integration, and offers a safe and welcoming environment for recovery, as well as fellowship and peer-to-peer support. Both residential and outpatient services are offered, as well as onsite child-care for mothers with dependent children.
