Blairstown, New Jersey
Denise Moore
Admissions Director

Since 1957, Little Hill-Alina Lodge has been providing residential treatment to men and women, 18 years and older, who suffer from drug or alcohol addiction issues. Admission requires a complete history of the patient as well as a physical prior to entry into the program. Patients must also be fully detoxified before admission. Average length of stay is between 6 and 9 months.

Michael Hornstein, Executive Director, was a patient at Alina Lodge in 1981. He has served on the Board of Directors for 20 years and was previously employed by the Miami Dade school system for 25 years. He has also served as a group therapist for the Broward County Commission on Alcoholism. Alina Lodge is licensed by the New Jersey Department of Health.

Alina Lodge utilizes the 12-Step principles to educate patients. Patients also participate in family therapy, relapse prevention education, trauma resolution, reality therapy, group therapy, individual counseling, and community-based meetings. Specialty groups and clinics are also available to address additional issues such as eating disorders, grief, sexual compulsivity, relationship dependency, and personality disorders. As a smoke-free environment, Alina Lodge also utilizes nicotine cessation education. The facility recently created a special 90 day treatment program which caters specifically to people who have never sought treatment for addiction.

The facility provides 24-hour nursing services and psychological evaluations for patients. The campus is located on 77 acres in rural New Jersey. The six residential buildings on campus are all historic and predate the Revolutionary War.
