Englewood Addiction Treatment Centers

If you suddenly stop abusing certain drugs or alcohol, you will likely experience withdrawal symptoms, which can be uncomfortable, painful, or in some cases, even fatal. Withdrawal management as part of a medical detox program can help reduce such symptoms and ensure your safety throughout the process.

Englewood, a city located in Bergen County, New Jersey, accounted for 108 of the overall 3,596 county admissions to substance abuse treatment sites reported in 2016.1 In 23 of the 108 cases, heroin was the primary drug of choice.1 Heroin and other opiates were the main drug of choice in 41% of the total Bergen County resident admissions.1

Withdrawal symptoms can occur if a long-time user abruptly stops taking or cuts back on a substance; withdrawal occurs because the body has become physically dependent on the drug and now struggles to function without it.2,3 Upon entering a rehab facility, the first step is typically a medical detox period during which your body rids itself of the abused substance.4,5 It is at this stage that opioid withdrawal symptoms may surface. Common opioid withdrawal symptoms include:6

  • Sweating.
  • Twitching muscles.
  • Nausea.
  • Vomiting.
  • Diarrhea.
  • Shaking.
  • Anxiety.

Professional detox programs can reduce or eliminate opioid withdrawal symptoms through the use of certain FDA approved medications, with the particular approach depending on your specific needs. Medical detox protocols allow for a safely monitored environment for a more comfortable withdrawal period. Following detox, more extensive treatment usually follows, focusing on therapies that encourage healthy habits and coping strategies to reduce the risk of relapse.
