Rehab and Detox Treatment in Jersey City

Jersey City officials understand how daunting it can be for someone to address the issue of addiction. Whether people have gone through an intervention, have been court-ordered to seek help, or have come to the decision to seek treatment themselves, actually taking the significant step of going to rehab is a very difficult one.

Because of this, Jersey City has put systems in place to ensure people know what treatment is available, and how to access it. Quite a large variety of drug and alcohol treatment programs now exist, which ensures that people can find a solution that works for them personally. Additionally, a number of community initiatives have been put in place to help prevent substance abuse from happening in the first place.

Inpatient Rehab Recommended

Those who do suffer from a substance abuse disorder are encouraged, where possible, to attend an inpatient rehab facility after they have gone through detox. This is because these facilities provide them with a supportive and safe environment, where they are removed from access to addictive substances, whether drugs or alcohol. That said, outpatient facilities do also exist, which are suitable for those with mild drug or alcohol use problems. However, these facilities are not suitable for those who are truly in the grips of an addiction.

Because inpatient rehab facilities have had such positive results, Jersey City has invested heavily in their availability. Today, residents of the area can have access to short term (30 days) and long term (90 days or more) facilities where they can remain in a completely drug free environment. Here, they are encouraged to heal physically after detox, and mentally as well. By encouraging patients to stay in rehab for as long as possible, counselors, therapists, doctors, and other support staff are able to help them become healthy and happy again, with long term positive results. That said, the majority of people who attend an inpatient rehab facility in Jersey City stay for just 30 days. As a result, relapse rates continue to be quite high, but a positive development is that those who have relapsed are more likely to remain in rehab for longer the second time around.

Efforts to Prevent Abuse Starting at a Young Age

There are some concerns in Jersey City about people having access to drugs and alcohol from a very young age. As a result, significant efforts have been put in place in schools, community centers, and other establishments to empower young people to understand the dangers of substance abuse. Providing them with alternatives and teaching them how to resist peer pressure are the strategies used to help make a positive difference in the long term.
