Understanding alcoholism

Understanding Alcohol Abuse

Alcoholism is a chronic condition that can cause significant physical, emotional, and social harm. It is diagnosed based on an individual’s drinking behavior, the impact on their life, and their ability to control their alcohol intake. This disorder ranges in severity and can develop due to various factors including genetics, lifestyle, and psychological conditions.

Since some people do drink alcohol regularly, it’s important to be able to tell the difference between responsible drinking and a potential problem. An alcohol use disorder, or AUD, is a medical condition that makes it difficult to stop or control alcohol use. It encompasses alcohol addiction, abuse and alcoholism.

There are certain factors that raise a person’s risk for developing an AUD, such as drinking at an early age, genetics, a family history of alcoholism, a history of trauma and the presence of mental illness. Some key signs and symptoms of an AUD are:

Why Choose North Jersey Wellness

Our Alcohol Abuse Treatment Options in NJ

According to the National Center for Drug Abuse statistics, 10.2 percent of Americans aged 12 and older had alcohol use disorder in 2020. Unfortunately, many people do not get help for their drinking problem. They may not realize they have a problem or know where to go for support.

The fact that you are here shows that you are ready to take the next step to help yourself or a loved one fight this disease. NJ Recovery Solutions follows this approach when treating alcohol addiction:


The first step in the recovery journey is detox, the process of eliminating toxins from the body. It is very important that a person struggling with alcohol addiction detoxes under medical supervision. Alcohol withdrawal symptoms aren’t just uncomfortable – they can be fatal, too. Having medical support can help in managing symptoms like seizures and delirium tremens. We can assist in finding a local detox center. 

Residential Inpatient

This intensive treatment option provides individuals with a structured environment, away from the triggers and stresses of daily life. It includes individual therapy, group therapy, and other activities designed to promote recovery.

Outpatient Programs

For those who need flexibility, our outpatient programs provide therapy and support while allowing participants to remain at home. This can include several weekly sessions of group and individual counseling.

Aftercare Support

Recovery from alcoholism is a long-term process. NJ Recovery Solutions offers extensive aftercare programs to support individuals after completing initial treatment. This includes ongoing counseling, support groups, and relapse prevention strategies.

What to Expect at Our Alcohol Rehab in New Jersey at NJ Recovery Solutions

NJ Recovery Solutions offers a variety of treatment modalities tailored to the needs of individuals struggling with alcoholism. Our approach is comprehensive, addressing the physical, emotional, and psychological facets of addiction.

Evidence-Based Therapies

Alcohol use disorders respond well to evidence-based approaches such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), individual counseling, group therapy and family therapy. These treatment modalities help individuals understand underlying issues and develop healthy coping mechanisms. For many people, alcohol use is a response to an emotional problem. 

We employ multiple therapeutic techniques to treat alcoholism effectively:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): Helps individuals identify and modify harmful drinking behaviors and thoughts.
  • Motivational Interviewing (MI): Enhances motivation to change drinking behavior.
  • Family Therapy: Involves family members in the recovery process to improve communication and support systems.

Personalized Treatment Plans

We understand that everyone’s needs are different. People come to us from all backgrounds and walks of life. Our team of addiction specialists work with each person to create a personalized treatment plan tailored to their specific circumstances, challenges and goals. These plans are not set in stone. They are modified and adjusted as needed depending on the person’s progress and response to certain therapies. 

Dual-Diagnosis Support

For those dealing with a co-occurring mental health disorder, our treatment program provides dual diagnosis care. This means that our treatment team will address both the alcohol use and the mental health problem at the same time, rather than treating them separately. This leads to improved outcomes, as both disorders are being addressed. 

Relapse Prevention

Learning how to prevent relapse is a crucial aspect of sober living. While relapse can be a normal part of the recovery process, it doesn’t have to be. This is why we arm our clients with the tools and resources they need to maintain sobriety and navigate potential triggers. We know it’s hard work, but relapse can be prevented! 


Community Support

We foster a community-oriented environment where individuals can find peer support and encouragement. This community aspect is vital for long-term recovery.
