Linden Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centers

Linden, NJ residents are just as likely as anyone else to suffer fatal consequences from an overdose. Even if you’ve used drugs for years without incident, it doesn’t mean that you aren’t at risk for experiencing a life-threatening overdose. Opioids, including heroin and prescription painkillers, caused the majority of overdose deaths in 2016.1 Around 40% of all Union County admissions into substance abuse treatment sites listed heroin or other opiates as their primary issue.2 

Some secondary complications can significantly increase your risk of an overdose, but many instances are due to variations in the strength of street drugs or addition of dangerous substances, such as fentanyl. In fact, synthetic opioids, such as fentanyl, were involved in nearly half of all overdose deaths reported during 2016.3

Secondary risk factors and complications that make an overdose more likely include:4

  • Long-term use of or dependence on a drug, which increases the likelihood of accidentally taking too much at some point in an attempt to overcome tolerance and get the desired effect.
  • Mental or physical health conditions, such as HIV, lung disease, liver disease, or depression.
  • Intravenous drug use or the abuse of prescription pain killers—two forms of opioid use particularly linked to overdose risk.
  • Combining opioids with alcohol and other sedative drugs, which increases the depression of certain central nervous system functions (e.g., breathing rate) already caused by the opioids.

Receiving treatment at a Linden rehab can prevent you from overdosing, as well as many other negative consequences of drug or alcohol abuse. If your opioid dependence is severe, you may need to go through a medical detox program before starting inpatient or outpatient rehab.

Becoming sober from Kapanol, Herbal Ecstacy, alcohol or other addictive substances you or your loved one is addicted to takes an specifically-tailored treatment strategy. Two options of substance treatment facilities in Linden can help you succeed: either Inpatient or Outpatient Rehab. Inpatient therapy offers long term advantages with an extended stay in a great rehab center. Outpatient programs may be more suitable, but lack the stability and assests of long-term programs to get over your substance abuse problem. Ultimately, you make the choice, and we are here to help you choose the best option for you.

Removing yourself from the location of the drug or alcohol problem can help eliminate distractions and tempting things that prevent long-term sobriety. When viewing rehabilitation as a healing retreat, addicts will find luxury exclusive programs in cities outside of Linden, New Jersey. Offering high-end hotel-like amenities, the best-quality centers help achieve a state of physical, mental and emotional healing. However, those looking for outpatient healing may find a clinic in close proximity to your home is a less difficult choice to make.
