Clifton Addiction Treatment Centers

If you live in Clifton, New Jersey, you may know someone who has been impacted by drug or alcohol addiction. Alcoholism is just one of the many addictions for which some residents of Clifton seek treatment.

More than 100 people sought alcohol abuse treatment at a Clifton rehab in 2016 alone, and alcohol was the primary driver of substance abuse admissions for nearly a quarter of the people who entered treatment in all of Passaic County in 2016.1

Unfortunately, it’s not as easy as simply deciding never to drink again to cure an alcohol use disorder. People who quit drinking suddenly are at risk of severe withdrawal symptoms, including seizures and hallucinations that sometimes lead to accidental self-injury.2 Detox is a process considered separate from rehab that involves treatment for these symptoms until they subside.

Benzodiazepine administration is one of the primary detox methods used to manage alcohol withdrawal because it reduces the severity of the major symptoms, but it’s not the only option.2 There are many other detox methods used specifically for alcoholics, including:2

  • Using other medications like anticonvulsants and adrenergic stimulants to control unpleasant symptoms.
  • Monitoring the withdrawal process and only offering medication if necessary.
  • Providing supportive care like therapy and confinement during the most intense symptoms.
  • Treating secondary complications like dehydration with IV drips.

People with severe withdrawal symptoms may need inpatient detox to safely go through the process. Outpatient detox may also be an option for people with less severe physical dependence. Outpatient services often cost less than $400 for the entire treatment, while inpatient detox for alcohol can cost more than $3,500.2

Withdrawal from alcohol is a challenging task, but you can succeed with the right kind of support. Entering rehab soon after completing a detox program often leads to a better chance at long-term sobriety. Search our database for rehab in Clifton or elsewhere in the vicinity. Our treatment directory contains listings for both detox and long-term rehab centers, and you can even find local facilities offering both types of treatment under one roof.
