Newark Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centers

As the state of New Jersey is home to a large number of people struggling with substance abuse and dependency issues, it is unsurprising that Newark, New Jersey has been affected at the city level.

In 2013, the City of Newark had the highest number of criminal offenses attributable to drug use with approximately 3,572 arrests.1 One effective way of gauging the substance abuse problem at the community level is by tracking the number of alcohol and drug treatment admissions in a particular city. Therefore, it is easy to see the extent of Newark’s drug abuse problem since it ranked first among all municipalities in New Jersey for substance abuse treatment admissions in 2014. Specifically, of New Jersey’s 58,863 treatment program admissions, 2,868 can be attributed to just Newark.1

After drug users are admitted into a treatment program, what can they expect? Besides medication and other medical support, treatment programs offer a variety of behavioral therapies that can aid drug users in overcoming their addiction. These therapies work to alter drug-related attitudes and behaviors, improve healthy and responsible life skills, and ensure that patients are ready to continue other forms of treatment to secure a sober, fulfilling lifestyle.

Many treatment programs include a form of cognitive-behavioral therapy, which helps patients understand when they are susceptible to relapse and equips them with the skills needed to avoid and cope with such situations. This allows patients to maintain sobriety after completing treatment and re-entering society.2

Another behavioral therapy option includes motivational incentives in which the patient is given positive reinforcement to encourage abstinence from the drug of choice. For adolescents with drug problems, multidimensional family therapy can be beneficial. This type of therapy improves overall family function by tackling the range of issues that govern drug abuse.2

Not all treatment programs are the same and not every program will work best for each drug user. To find the program that is perfect for you or your loved one, browse our directory today.

Clinical Program Manager/Primary Therapist Recovery Institute of Ohio

My name is Jessica Kitchin and I am currently the Clinical Program Manager/Primary Therapist at Recovery Institute of Ohio. In August of 2018, I graduated with my Master’s Degree in Addiction Counseling. I also have a Bachelor’s Degree in Education. Obtaining these degrees and progressing in my life was always part of my plan as a child; however, when I started drinking regularly by the age of 12 and using drugs at the age of 16, I didn’t think my life was going to end up the way it has. Even though I attended college for education, I found myself drinking and heavily using drugs, until I dropped out with one semester left. My addiction completely controlled my life.

Investigate Newark Rehabilitation Programs
Newark drug rehab programs can treat addictions to almost any substance you can think of, from cocaine to prescription medications to methamphetamine. Often, these centers are treating addictions to heroin. According to the New Jersey Department of Human Services, about 41 percent of people who enter New Jersey drug treatment programs do so because they are addicted to heroin, while an additional 33 percent admit to an addiction to alcohol.

Whether you’re caught in a cycle of addiction to heroin, or you have a history of abusing some other drug, rehab programs may provide you with much-needed help.

The Need for Going to Rehab

You might have heard stories of people who woke up one day, vowed to kick drugs for good and then stuck to that goal for the rest of their lives. These stories might be inspiring, and they might even be true, but they’re also quite uncommon. Addictions can be insidious, causing changes in the chemistry of your brain, and these changes can make it difficult for you to quit on your own without help. There is no shame in asking for help, either. Addictions are medical conditions, similar to diabetes and heart disease, that can be controlled through medications, therapy and lifestyle choices. Just as you’d ask for help for a doctor if you were diagnosed with heart disease, you should consider asking for help from a therapist if you have an addiction.

What Will I Receive in Therapy?

Addiction programs might provide you with a variety of therapies that can help you to understand your addiction and improve. Those therapies might include:

  • One-on-one counseling
  • Group counseling
  • Support group access
  • Family counseling
  • Nutritional support
  • Medications
