Princeton Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centers

You or someone you love could be among the number people who struggle with drug addiction in Princeton, New Jersey. A comprehensive treatment program can help you understand how your personal relapse triggers affect you while you learn to address those emotions head-on.

In 2016, a total of 2,312 Mercer County residents were admitted to substance abuse treatment centers.1 Of those, 34% (1,079) sought treatment in an outpatient facility, and 16% (505) chose to receive intensive outpatient care.1 As part of treatment in Princeton or nearby locations, you may learn techniques to identify and adjust your behaviors toward potential relapse triggers.

Relapse triggers can present hurdles for those seeking treatment, especially if you’re exposed to a familiar person, sound, experience, or sight that you associate with drug use. If you decide that outpatient care is the right kind of treatment for you, you may continue to run into potential relapse triggers.

A trigger could be a person, place, or thing that reminds you of the feelings you experienced when using your substance of choice. Like so many others, you may feel that you are unable to overcome your addiction due to your triggers.

Some other examples of triggers include the following:

  • Settings where you may be exposed to drugs or alcohol, such as a concert or bar
  • Unhealthy relationships or connections to people who still use drugs
  • Holidays or positive life events, where you might feel the pressure to be happy
  • Difficult emotions, such as anger or stress, as well as feeling bored or lonely
  • Loss, such as death, divorce, or job termination
  • Onscreen depictions of drinking or drugs
  • Pressure at work

Getting clean and sober from MS Contin, Zydone, alcohol or any other substance you or your loved one is addicted to takes an individualized treatment plan. Two options of drug or alcohol abuse treatment centers in Princeton can help you succeed: either Inpatient or Out-patient Rehabilitation. Residential care offers long-run benefits with extended stays in a high-quality rehabilitation program. Outpatient plans may be more fitting, but lack the stability and resources of 2 month programs to get into recovery. Ultimately, the choice is yours, and we are here to help you make the best decision.

Separating yourself from the environment of the substance abuse can help remove disruptions and temptations that prevent total recovery. When viewing rehab as a therapeutic retreat, addicts will find private luxury facilities in cities outside of Princeton, New Jersey. Offering resort-like amenities, the top-rated programs help achieve a physical, mental and emotional recovery. However, those looking for outpatient treatments may find a clinic in close proximity to your residence is a less difficult decision.
