Accommodations: Nestled in a serene, wooded backdrop, Pinelands Recovery Center of Medford is truly a destination for healing and recovery. Our two residential facilities, situated on 40 lush acres, evoke a warm, lodge-like feel that is truly unique.
The Pinelands Experience
A Home Away from Home
Each of our homes include 30 spacious double-occupancy bedrooms, as well as ample community spaces, cozy corners and a light-filled dining hall that also serves as a multi-purpose room. Each bedroom includes comfortable furniture, including a bed, desk, dresser and en-suite bathroom.
We believe that peer interaction is an essential component in recovery. Our common rooms are the heart of our homes where connections are made and bonds are formed through therapy and support groups. There’s a space and place for everyone, including quiet alcoves that are ideal for private reflection, as well as larger rooms designed for meetings, TV watching, video gaming, music, ping pong, darts, art projects and more during free time. Our fire pit area is a much-loved gathering place, both night and day, for breaks and intimate conversations.
Making the Mind-Body Connection
We encourage patients to explore physical activities and mindful movement during their time at Pinelands. Reconnecting with their bodies and finding new, more adaptive ways to manage stress are important steps as we prepare patients for life after rehab. Our vast grounds provide abundant space for basketball, tennis and volleyball courts, along with a yoga studio.
Upon admission, our chef meets with each patient to learn about food preferences and any dietary requirements. Our dining services staff understand how important nourishment is during recovery. Meals are prepared with fresh ingredients that appeal to the senses—flavorful, colorful, tantalizing.
Meals are served cafeteria-style in the dining hall three times a day and always include ample options. Self-serve snacks and beverages, including coffee, are also available throughout the day.
Lastly, while our residential homes are comfortably sized, our patients are never lost in a crowd. We purposely limit the size of our groups to ensure a small patient-to-provider ratio. Patients in our care receive highly personalized attention and regularly tell us that they felt loved and nurtured by every staff member, from the treatment and housekeeping teams to the dining staff and all other members of their Pinelands family. It’s this unique blend of nature and nurture that puts our patients on their path to lifelong recovery.
