Addiction Resources in Morris County
The United States is currently in the third wave of the opioid epidemic. This wave is marked by a larger number of overdose deaths. It is also known for the increasing number of fentanyl-related deaths. Pharmaceutical fentanyl was introduced in the 1990s, but cancer patients needed prescriptions for it. It is 80 to 100 times more potent than morphine. During the third wave, drug dealers began to manufacture illicit fentanyl in clandestine labs. Deaths due to the increasing existence of illicit fentanyl are making the third wave particularly deadly.
Just this year alone, Morris County recorded 22 overdoses that were due to opioids, but these people survived. The county also listed 16 fatal overdoses due to opioids. Last year, the county suffered 78 opioid-related overdoses.
In 2019, more people admitted themselves into drug treatment centers than were referred by others. Most people did this because of heroin use disorder. The second-largest population to enter treatment centers did so because of their struggles with alcohol.
At North Jersey Rehabs, our therapists treat each client as an individual. When your loved one first arrives, we set out to learn everything that we can about him. For example, we give him a physical examination to assess the state of his physical health. Our psychiatrists will also examine him for the possibility that he is experiencing a mental health disorder. Then, we can develop a treatment plan that addresses his specific needs. Your loved one will begin treatment for his heroin or alcohol use disorder with the following:
With 39% of the population entering treatment centers for alcohol in 2019, residents of Morris County needed help with alcohol as much as they needed assistance with opioids. At North Jersey Rehabs, you have the greatest chance of detoxifying your body because of our medical detox program. Our physicians prescribe medications that relieve the withdrawal symptoms so that all of the alcohol can be removed from your body. This is essential because you will not be able to concentrate on the work you need to do in your therapy sessions if you are obsessed with seeking and obtaining alcohol.
The detoxification process is only the first step. Your loved one may be in a program that lasts 30 days, 60 days, or 90 days. In that time, our therapists will treat his psychological addiction to alcohol with cognitive-behavioral therapy and other forms of therapy.
Drug rehab also begins with the detoxification process. Then, the hard work of overcoming the psychological addiction can begin. Because people often feel embarrassed about telling other people their experiences, our therapists provide individual therapy for each client. Then, your loved one can feel free to say anything to the therapist. This is very important because your loved one must feel comfortable telling the therapist everything that may be important to their recovery. It is also important for our clients to join each other in group therapy.
In medical detox, your loved one will be in a controlled environment. It will be impossible for him to seek his drug of choice. The staff will administer medications so that your loved one will be comfortable during the process. It will be entirely safe because the staff will monitor your loved one to ensure that he isn’t in any distress. At the completion of this process, your loved one will be prepared to continue with therapy for alcohol or heroin use disorder.
Inpatient rehab is the best option for your loved one if she has been dealing with a drug or alcohol addiction for many years. Your loved one will live at the facility and enter the medical detox program. Then, she will take part in several types of therapy to treat either alcohol or drug addiction.
Partial Hospitalization Program
If your loved one has been in an inpatient rehab center before and does not wish to live in a facility any longer, the partial hospitalization program may be an option. It offers your loved one intensive therapy for his drug or alcohol addiction, but he can go home at night.
Outpatient rehab encompasses several types of programs. For example, outpatient programs require your loved one to be in therapy for five to seven days per week. Therefore, they are highly intensive treatment programs. Your loved one also has the option of selecting an intensive outpatient program. Outpatient programs are intensive, but intensive outpatient programs are even more so. Your loved one would need to commit to an increased amount of time in this type of program. For example, she would need to attend sessions for at least nine hours each day.
A sober living facility is a safe place for your loved one after he leaves an inpatient rehab center. Your loved one may be afraid to return home after inpatient rehab, but sober living homes give him more time to live without substances before going back home. Your loved one will have more freedom than in the inpatient rehab center, but he will also have a greater amount of support than the outpatient programs can provide.
