About Us

About the Kraft Group, Inc.

The Kraft Group was born out of a need for customized and compassionate treatment for individuals and families. Located in Florham Park, New Jersey, it offers valuable convenience for those seeking treatment throughout the Tri-State area.

At the Kraft Group we believe that treatment is dealing with the symptoms. Recovery is an intimate personal journey. People are often told there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Yet, for some they are not able to find the tunnel. At the Kraft Group, we help people take the journey to the tunnel so they can gather the strength to find the light of recovery.

Leigh Kolodny-Kraft, Founder and Executive Director, became highly frustrated with the one size fits all philosophy often found in treatment today. She decided to build the Kraft Group by partnering with other like minded professionals in the field of metal health in order to provide high quality, customized care for individuals and their families all in one location. The Kraft Group is composed of some of the leading professionals in the field of mental health and addictions treatment. Many have been featured on the radio and TV, and are award-winners in their respective specialties.

At the Kraft Group, we believe our clients flourish in an environment free from shame and judgment. We recognized a need for an alternative to traditional Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP’s) and provide customized treatment, urine screens, individual, group and family sessions. We provide an alternative for those who require intensive treatment but are not comfortable with the traditional model. We can customize treatment to meet each client and families schedule and confidentiality needs.

The Kraft Group utilizes a strength-based approach by helping clients see the innate strength inside them and uses that to work on underlying issues. Every client is met with authenticity, warmth and respect.

The Kraft Group is dedicated to providing all wrap around services necessary to families and individuals in one place to help people reach their goals. The Kraft Group provides varying levels of outpatient care, treating Family Issues, Relationship Issues, Substance Abuse Disorders, Gambling Addiction, Sex Addiction treatment for the individual and family, Trauma treatment, and child and adolescent treatment through individual sessions, group sessions and family sessions. Couples and Conjoint Couples treatment are also provided at the Relationship Institute within The Kraft Group.

The Kraft Group takes a firm stance that treatment begins with trust and we believe that healing begins from within. We believe that everyone has the ability to heal, and that our role is to support that healing and provide a safe therapeutic relationship which will enable that healing to emerge. We stand firm that our service is not a business transaction but a relationship formed over time. A relationship based on authenticity and a powerful journey of self inquiry and support.

Leigh Kolodny-Kraft was awarded the 2014 Lora Roe Alcoholism and Drug Addiction Counselor of the Year award by NAADAC, the National Association for Addiction Professionals. Ms. Kolodny-Kraft was honored with this prestigious award for her work in the field of Addictions and Codependency. View Description on NAADAC Website

A child does not raise themselves: At The Kraft Group we use a family systems lens and a trauma informed approach to working with you and your child. Together we identify the family’s and the child’s strengths to use them as a starting point in resolving the identified problems. Many clients find success and attribute that to our individualized approach to treatment. We acknowledge that every child is special and unique and it is up to us to design a plan of care that works well with their qualities. By viewing children in the context of their family, we are not only able to assist with resolving the problems that brought you in to treatment but are able to help you gain the insight and skills that will keep your family moving forward for the years to come.

Our Individualized Approach

If your child is struggling with one or more of the above issues, we may recommend the following:

1. Individual sessions which will help your child increase their emotional intelligence by teaching skills for symptom reduction, emotion regulation, and help increase their self-awareness to develop insight.

2. Family sessions will be used to help view your child’s specific needs in the context of your family. This will help ensure that the family grows along with the child and that the skill sets are developed simultaneously.

3. Group sessions can be added to enhance the development of both skills and insight. Groups provide children with the opportunity to practice skills through sharing of experiences and role play.

The Kraft Group offers individual psychotherapy, family therapy, teen therapy, children therapy, and group therapy!

Sessions in a comfortable home like setting. We look forward to welcoming you into our practice, and helping you live the  life you want to live.
