Summit Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centers

Seeing someone you care about struggling with drug abuse can be stressful. And while you may feel as though it is impossible to offer help, encouraging the drug user to get professional treatment at a Summit, NJ rehab center or elsewhere can prevent the person from hurting his or herself and others.

In 2016, nearly 3,400 Union County residents entered substance abuse treatment. Of these, heroin was the most common substance abused, followed by alcohol then marijuana.1

If you think a loved one or friend has a drug problem, speak to them in a calm, non-threatening tone of voice about your worries. Be specific, citing situations whenever possible rather than using vague language like “I worry about your health.” However, be careful to avoid placing the blame on the drug user, as doing so is unproductive and may even lead them to begin using again. Pushing someone you care about into treatment is not the answer either; it can lead to relapse or early release before program completion. Instead, encourage your close friend or family member to start considering treatment.

Another idea is to stage an invention meeting in the presence of friends and loved ones. This meeting should be conducted in a comfortable setting with only close family and friends to prevent the drug user from simply walking out. The meeting should consist of each person providing guidance and support for the drug user in an effort to help them identify their addiction, realize the support network they have, and begin their journey to a sober-free lifestyle.

Only once the drug user understands the issue will they seek a solution. Even if they don’t admit to having a substance abuse issue, explain that you care deeply for them and will continue to offer unconditional support. Offering such support to a loved one who has a drug addiction is invaluable.

Enlightened Solutions Detox

Getting clean and sober from MDMA, Methamphetamine, alcohol or any other addictive drugs you or your loved one is addicted to takes an specifically-tailored treatment arrangement. Two options of drug or alcohol addiction treatment programs in Summit can help you succeed: either In-patient or Out-patient Rehabilitation. Residential care offers continuing benefits with extended residence in an excellent rehabilitation center. Outpatient programs may be "easier", but lack the constancy and assets of long-term programs to get clean. Ultimately, you make the decision, and we are here to help you choose the best option for you.

Removing yourself from the conditions of the substance problem can help eliminate disruptions and temptations that prevent you from recovering. When viewing rehab as a therapeutic haven, addicts will find exclusive executive clinics in cities outside of Summit, New Jersey. Offering resort-like amenities, the perfect centers help achieve a state of physical, psychological and emotional recovery. However, those looking for outpatient regimen may find a facility close to home is an easier choice.
