Rahway Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centers

Union County, New Jersey—home to Rahway—had about 1,300 residents admitted to substance abuse treatment for heroin during 2016. Another 1,101 were admitted for alcohol-related issues. There are various levels of care available in Union County, including outpatient care, intensive outpatient, outpatient opioid maintenance, and long-term and short-term residential care.1

If you’re struggling with drug or alcohol abuse, you might be wondering what level of care is best for you. Here are some of the most common types of care and the differences between them:2

  • Detoxification: This is a period during which drugs or alcohol are cleared from the body. Detox helps manage the acute and possibly dangerous effects of stopping drugs. Detox does not address the behavioral, social, or psychological problems that are often found with addiction. Referral to a comprehensive drug or alcohol addiction program should follow detox. Follow-up treatment will help lead to lasting changes necessary for long-term recovery.
  • Inpatient treatment: The patient lives at the facility for the duration of the program, which typically lasts anywhere between 30 and 90 days. You are separated from your using environment so that you can focus solely on recovery.
  • Outpatient Treatment: Outpatient treatment is ideal for people who need to continue to work or attend school while participating in treatment, since you still live at home while in recovery. There are many types of outpatient treatments available and each varies widely in the approach and methods used.

Garden Heights Recovery

Becoming sober from Crystal Meth, Crystal Meth, alcohol or other addictive substances you or your loved one is addicted to takes an specifically-tailored treatment strategy. Two options of substance abuse treatment facilities in Rahway can help you succeed: either Inpatient or Outpatient Rehab. Inpatient therapy offers enduring benefits with an extended stay in a top rated rehab program. Outpatient plans may be more opportune, but lack the stability and assests of 2 month programs to get sober. Ultimately, you make the choice, and we are here to help you make the best decision.

Separating yourself from the location of the drug or alcohol problem can help remove distractions and tempting things that prevent long-term sobriety. When viewing rehabilitation as a healing retreat, addicts will find luxury private centers in cities outside of Rahway, New Jersey. Offering high-end hotel-like amenities, the top-rated programs help achieve a state of physical, mental and emotional healing. However, those looking for outpatient healing may find a clinic near your home is an easier decision.
