The Types of Services Found in a New Jersey Recovery Center

Detox and treatment are two of the most important services offered at a recovery center. Detox allows you to safely withdraw from drugs and alcohol under medical supervision. Doctors provide medications as needed to help minimize withdrawal symptoms and make you as comfortable as possible during the process.

Treatment, such as individual or group counseling, helps you develop skills and strategies for overcoming addiction and maintaining sobriety. Cognitive behavioral therapy is commonly used to help change unhealthy thoughts and behavior patterns. Family therapy can also help repair relationships damaged by addiction.

A good recovery center will offer both medical detox and a variety of treatment options so you can get the help you need for your unique situation. Short-term residential treatment, also known as rehab, typically lasts 28 to 30 days, while long-term residential treatment can last 3 months or more.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) uses FDA-approved medications, in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, to provide a “whole-patient” approach to the treatment of substance use disorders. MAT is available for opioid use disorder as well as alcohol use disorder.

The medications used in MAT for opioid use disorder include methadone, buprenorphine, and naltrexone – they work by blocking the effects of opioids and reducing cravings. For alcohol use disorder, medications like naltrexone and acamprosate can be used.

MAT has been shown to be clinically effective in helping people achieve and maintain recovery from substance use disorders. The medications work to normalize brain chemistry, block the euphoric effects of alcohol and opioids, relieve physiological cravings, and stabilize body functions. When combined with therapy and counseling, MAT provides a comprehensive approach that supports long-term recovery.

Inpatient Treatment

Inpatient treatment provides intensive, 24-hour care. Patients live onsite at the facility for the duration of treatment, allowing them to focus fully on their recovery. Inpatient programs typically last 30, 60, or 90 days.

Patients receive medically monitored detox if needed and a combination of individual therapy, group counseling, life skills training, and aftercare planning. The structured environment and round-the-clock social support provide relief from triggers and accountability.

Inpatient care is ideal for those with severe addictions or co-occurring disorders. The residential setting allows for a customized treatment plan that addresses all aspects of a person’s well-being. Patients learn coping strategies and ways to avoid relapses before returning home.

Individual therapy is part of outpatient treatment at New Jersey Recovery Center

Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient treatment allows you to live at home while receiving addiction treatment services. This option is ideal for those with mild to moderate substance use disorders. Outpatient treatment centers in New Jersey offer therapy and counseling several times a week for a few hours at a time.

Outpatient care typically consists of:

  • Individual therapy
  • Group counseling
  • Family counseling
  • Medication management
  • Relapse prevention planning

Outpatient treatment is more flexible but less intensive than inpatient or residential rehab. However, it still requires a major time commitment to be effective. Outpatient rehab may involve 10-12 hours of treatment activities per week.

The specific services and treatment approaches used can vary but often include a combination of individual counseling, group therapy, family therapy, and medication-assisted treatment.

Partial Care Program Services

Partial care program services provide structured treatment for those struggling with substance abuse for several hours a day, allowing clients to return home in the evenings and on weekends. These programs offer intensive group and individual counseling, education on addiction and recovery, and life skills training.

Patients follow a customized treatment plan to address their unique needs and situations. The partial care environment promotes accountability while still allowing for a gradual transition back to normal life.

Clinicians evaluate patients’ progress regularly and adjust treatment plans accordingly based on their recovery and life goals. The ultimate aim is to equip clients with the tools and coping strategies to maintain sobriety independently. Partial care lays the groundwork for a lifetime of recovery.

Sober Living Services

Sober living homes provide temporary housing for those in recovery. They offer:

  • A structured living environment with rules to support sobriety, like curfews, chore schedules, and mandatory attendance at meetings or counseling.
  • Peer support. Living with others committed to recovery helps build accountability and encouragement.
  • Independence to work or go to school while still having a supportive place to call home.

Sober living bridges the gap between rehab and independent living. The goal is to gain life skills and prepare to live substance-free on your own. The supportive, communal aspects of sober living have proven invaluable for many in achieving long-term sobriety.
