  • Alcohol or drug addiction is a problem for many people across the United States, and New Jersey is no exception. Many New Jersey residents are struggling to overcome substance use disorder, and it can be hard to reach out for help. 

    Luckily, New Jersey, New York, and several other states across the region are home to drug and alcohol rehab centers that can improve your quality of life and overall mental health. 

    How To Find & Choose Addiction Treatment In New Jersey

    Choosing an addiction treatment center is an important part of starting the recovery process. 

    There are several ways you or a loved one can search for the right treatment facility, including:

    • reaching out directly to a treatment center for more information on their treatment options
    • calling the New Jersey addictions hotline at 1-844-276-2777
    • using SAMHSA’s behavioral health treatment locator

    While considering available treatment options, it’s key that you consider factors that are more likely to make your treatment successful, including:

    • family involvement: if you’d like your family or other loved ones to be involved as a part of your support team, you’ll want to find a treatment facility that prioritizes family involvement as a part of your care plan
    • individualized treatment plans: you’ll want to choose a treatment facility that offers a custom course of treatment to fit your individual needs
    • co-occurring disorders: if you suffer from more than one mental health condition, it’s key to work with a recovery center that understands how to care for other mental health disorders while you’re also battling substance use disorder
    • continuum of care: throughout your treatment, you’ll progress through several levels of care (such as detox, inpatient treatment, and aftercare), and it’s helpful when your treatment team follows you throughout each level of your recovery program
    • evidence-based services: keep an eye out for treatment providers that use therapies that are proven to be effective for addiction, such as various behavioral therapies

    New Jersey Drug & Alcohol Treatment Programs

    There are many treatment programs available for New Jersey residents who are ready to begin the fight against substance use disorder. 

    There are several levels of care available in the area, from Newark to New Brunswick, including detox, residential treatment, outpatient treatment, and aftercare options. 

    If you’re not sure what level of care is appropriate for you, reaching out to a treatment facility can be a good idea. Their staff can work with you to help you decide which level of treatment is an appropriate starting point for your needs. 

    Medical Drug & Alcohol Detox

    Going through the detoxification process can feel daunting. Working with a medical treatment team can be a safe, effective way to work through the detox and withdrawal process.

    Inpatient treatment allows you to take the time you need to discover and attack the root causes of your substance use disorder, helping you achieve long-term addiction recovery.

    Outpatient Treatment

    Outpatient treatment can be an effective alternative to residential treatment, as well as a step-down level of care option following an inpatient rehab program.
