Paterson Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centers

Paterson, NJ, is beset by a high prevalence of heroin use due to the nation’s ongoing opioid crisis.

The rate of opioid overdose deaths in New Jersey increased by over 42% from 2015 to 2016, with the rate of heroin overdose deaths increasing by an almost 9-fold degree from 2010 to 2016.1,2 In Paterson, heroin accounts for 48% of all rehab treatment admissions, while alcohol makes up about 19% of admissions.3

Heroin and opioid dependence are commonly treated using medical detox. Medical detox involves using medications that relieve drug cravings and withdrawal symptoms, thereby allowing you to experience a safer, more comfortable withdrawal. Methadone, buprenorphine, and/or naltrexone may be used as part of opioid detox at a drug rehab center.4

Benefits of a professional opioid detox program include: 5

  • Withdrawal from opioids under close medical supervision to reduce the risk for complications.
  • Using medications that help relieve painful, uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms.
  • Resuming normal daily activities (if attending outpatient) while using methadone or buprenorphine to manage symptoms.
  • Fully overcoming opioid dependence.
  • Reducing your risk for relapse and overdose.

Following medical detox from opioids, it is recommended that you transition into an opioid addiction treatment program, where you can receive individual therapy, group counseling, family therapy, medication-assisted treatment (MAT), and aftercare planning. These interventions and services can help you obtain and maintain sobriety in the long run.

Enlightened Solutions Detox

Breaking free from Fentanyl, Luminal, alcohol or other addictive substances you or your loved one is addicted to takes an specifically-tailored treatment strategy. Two options of drug or alcohol treatment facilities in Paterson can help you succeed: either Residential or Outpatient Rehab. Inpatient counseling offers long term benefits with an extended stay in a top rated rehab clinic. Outpatient programs may be more convenient, but lack the stability and assests of 28-day programs to achieve sobriety. Ultimately, you make the choice, and we are here to help you find the best fit.

Removing yourself from the location of the drug or alcohol problem can help eliminate disturbances and temptations that prevent long-term sobriety. When viewing rehabilitation as a healing retreat, addicts will find luxury exclusive programs in cities outside of Paterson, New Jersey. Offering retreat-like features, the best clinics help achieve a state of physical, mental and emotional healing. However, those looking for outpatient healing may find a center in close proximity to your home is a less difficult choice to make.
