Pleasantville Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centers

In the United States, the problem of drug dependence and addiction is serious—a fact that holds true for Pleasantville, New Jersey. Located in Atlantic County, Pleasantville, like countless other cities and towns spanning the country, is home to a large number of drug users, many of them opioid addicts.

In fact, of the 4,705 Atlantic County residents who were admitted to substance abuse treatment programs in 2016, 55% used heroin as their primary drug of choice with another 8% using other opiates.1 This means that approximately 2,953 Atlantic County residents were admitted for treatment concerning opioid addictions in 2016.1 In Pleasantville itself, 191 of the 308 people admitted into treatment programs in 2016 were addicted to opioids.1

With opioid dependence and addiction come a variety of legal, social, mental, and medical concerns, one of which is the danger of intravenous drug use. Of those Atlantic County residents admitted to substance abuse treatment programs in 2016, 49% were intravenous drug users, meaning the drug is injected directly into the vein.1 This can lead to other serious and potentially life-threatening conditions.

One potential complication from intravenous drug use is the contraction of HIV. When abusing substances, a person’s judgment and decision-making skills are severely impaired, leading to the possibility of inadvertently contracting HIV through unprotected sex and other risky behaviors. Additionally, injection drug use and needle sharing accounts for 10% of HIV cases annually, as the disease can be passed through the bodily fluids exchanged when sharing a needle. This is made even more likely due to the fact that 1 in 6 people with HIV do not know they are infected.2

On top of the risk of HIV, those who engage in intravenous drug use leave themselves open to catching other diseases, such as viral hepatitis, since this infectious disease can be spread in the same manner that HIV can. Co-infection with hepatitis C occurs in up to a quarter of the cases of HIV in America. For those who engage in intravenous drug use, that rate is significantly higher at 80%. Since hepatitis C is often asymptomatic, it can cause serious damage to the liver before it is treated.2

If you or a loved one are struggling with intravenous drug use in Pleasantville, New Jersey and require help to prevent dangerous complications, browse our directory to find a substance abuse program that suits your needs.

Recovery Centers of America at Raritan Bay

Breaking free from Hycodan, Ritalin, alcohol or other addictive drugs you or your loved one is addicted to takes an specifically-tailored treatment schedule. Two options of substance abuse treatment clinics in Pleasantville can help you succeed: either Residential or Outpatient Rehab. Inpatient counseling offers continuing benefits with longer stays in a high-quality rehab center. Outpatient programs may be more opportune, but lack the stability and capability of 28-day programs to become sober. Ultimately, you are in control of your decision, and we are here to help you find the best fit.

Removing yourself from the setting of the abuse issue can help eliminate disturbances and temptations that prevent you from staying clean. When viewing rehabilitation as a restorative retreat, addicts will find executive luxury facilities in cities outside of Pleasantville, New Jersey. Offering retreat-like features, the top centers help achieve a physical, mental and emotional restoration. However, those looking for outpatient therapy may find a program in close proximity to your home is a less difficult choice to make.
