Hackensack Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centers

As in other cities, residents in Hackensack, NJ are sometimes ordered to attend rehab to treat a drug or alcohol use disorder as part of a court settlement or judgment.

Over 1,400 of the roughly 2,400 people admitted for treatment in Bergen County, NJ during 2016 were involved in some kind of legal case or dispute. 23% of county admissions came from a direct referral from a criminal justice source.1 

A stay in a Hackensack, NJ rehab can occur after a judge orders it or willingly as demonstration of an earnest desire for recovery and self-improvement. Some of ways rehab may be involved in your court case include:2

  • As a pre-trial release condition, especially for inpatient treatment that prevents you from fleeing the area.
  • As an ongoing condition for probation or parole, which may include either or both an initial inpatient treatment and long-term outpatient attendance requirements.
  • As a requirement for seeking custody or visitation rights of your children.

Each state has unique requirements and limitations regarding involuntary commitment to a drug treatment program. Before an area drug court can send you to a Hackensack drug rehab, they must conduct screening services and collect clinical certificates regarding your mental and physical state.4

Drug tests are often involved in these screenings to determine if you are in need of treatment at a rehab or mental health facility. The evidence behind court ordered and mandatory rehab treatments are mixed, but some studies do report a higher rate of success than with optional treatment.4  

Committing to the treatment program can result in greater chances of remaining abstinent from drug use after completion. Learning about the local Hackensack rehab facilities through our database will give you a good idea of what to expect during your court-ordered treatment.

Achieving sobriety from Subutex, Orlaam, alcohol or any other addictive substance you or your loved one is addicted to takes an specifically-tailored treatment plan. Two options of substance addiction treatment centers in Hackensack can help you succeed: either Inpatient or Out-patient Rehabilitation. Inpatient treatment offers continuing benefits with extended stays in an excellent rehabilitation program. Outpatient programs may be more convenient to you, but lack the constancy and resources of ninety-day programs to get over your addiction. Ultimately, your decision is your own, and we are here to help you make the right decision.

Information on Hackensack Rehab Centers A huge drug sting in Hackensack, New Jersey in July 2011 netted $100,000 worth of marijuana and put three people behind bars. Just one month later, in August 2011, a drug sweep resulting from an anti-drug initiative resulted in 15 arrests and seizures of mostly crack cocaine, but marijuana and meth as well. These drug busts show the prevalence of drugs in this area and how hard police officers are working to keep the city's drug problem under control.

Heroin is widely used in New Jersey. It accounted for more than 16,000 treatment admissions in 2010, twice the number of marijuana treatment admissions.
