Elizabeth Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centers

Elizabeth, NJ, struggles with high rates of heroin and alcohol abuse, both of which can be treated at nearby addiction treatment centers. Elizabeth is the largest city in Union County, where heroin treatment admissions outnumber alcohol treatment admissions. Roughly 37% of rehab admissions in Union County are for heroin, while 33% are for alcohol. However, in Elizabeth, alcohol admissions are slightly higher than that of heroin at 35% versus 33%, respectively.1

Substance use disorders for alcohol, heroin, cocaine, and all other drugs can be treated at Elizabeth rehab centers using detoxification, therapy, and other evidence-based treatments. Detox helps you withdraw from drugs and alcohol under direct medical supervision, so you benefit from a reduced risk for complications, while therapy helps you overcome negative thoughts and behaviors and other root causes driving your addiction.

Benefits of receiving detox and addiction therapy include: 2

  • Overcoming drug and alcohol dependence along with cravings for these substances.
  • Withdrawing from drugs and alcohol while surrounded by experienced medical staff.
  • Facing a reduced risk for withdrawal complications, such as seizures or hallucinations (in the event of alcohol or sedative withdrawal).
  • Identifying and overcoming triggers that cause drug and alcohol use.
  • Bonding with peers in recovery, as well as at 12-step support groups and group therapy sessions.
  • Setting a new daily routine that doesn’t involve drug and alcohol use.
  • Discovering new interests that fill the time you previously spent using drugs and alcohol.

Addiction treatments can be tailored to meet your specific recovery needs, so you have a greater chance of achieving long-term sobriety. For instance, if you suffer from a dual diagnosis of alcohol use disorder and PTSD, dual diagnosis rehab in Elizabeth’s facilities can help you overcome these issues using detox, addiction therapy, and trauma-focused therapy.3

Footprints to Recovery Addiction Treatment Centers

Achieving sobriety from Hash, Anexsia, alcohol or any other addictive substance you or your loved one is addicted to takes an specifically-tailored treatment plan. Two options of drug or alcohol addiction treatment centers in Elizabeth can help you succeed: either Residential or Out-patient Rehabilitation. Inpatient treatment offers lasting gains with extended stays in a highly-rated rehabilitation facility. From-home plans may be "easier", but lack the constancy and resources of one-month programs to become clean and sober. Ultimately, your decision is your own, and we are here to help you pick the best fit.

Withdrawing yourself from the environment of the drug or alcohol addiction can help get rid of diversions and temptations that prevent complete sobriety. When viewing rehab as a therapeutic shelter, addicts will find private executive clinics in cities outside of Elizabeth, New Jersey. Offering high-end hotel-like features, the best-rated facilities help achieve a state of physical, mental and emotional recovery. However, those looking for outpatient programs may find a program close to your home is an easier choice to make.
