Eva's Village

393 Main Street, Paterson, New Jersey, 07501
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.

Facility Highlights

  • Group Counseling
  • 12-Step Programs
  • Job Training


  • Outpatient

    Outpatient treatment describes all addiction treatment that is not residential. Patients live at home while undergoing rehab.
  • Residential Treatment

    Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.

      They do give you an opportunity to better yourself but if you make one mistake or even blink the wrong way your out on restriction and can’t work which defeats the whole purpose of the program! Most the counseled are empathetic to addiction but one in particular is the worse counseler I have ever encountered in my life. Her unprofessional Approach to everything is in itself down fall.
        This place is the worst. Noone is listening to the needs of the client, they group everyone as a whole and needs are individualizes, a person can't be treated as a group. The staff is on a power trip and their lives must suck so bad that they take it out at their place of employment. I recommend you stay as far away from this place as possible
          This place is horrible, after the director mike quit the clinical staff and housing staff are the worst to clients , i lived there i know
