Jersey City Addiction Treatment Centers

Jersey City has fantastic views of Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty—but it also has a hidden problem: drug abuse.

Heroin is among the most abused substances in Jersey City, with 765 residents seeking treatment for their addiction to the drug in 2016.1 In total, 2,092 Jersey City residents were admitted to substance abuse treatment programs in 2016, which is approximately 0.7% of the city’s population.1,2

Living with a substance addiction is difficult, but it’s even more challenging when you simultaneously have a mental health disorder. This condition is called comorbidity or a dual diagnosis. In some cases, taking drugs can be the cause of the mental illness, while in other instances, mental illness is a contributing factor to addiction (e.g., by self-medicating to alleviate symptoms of bipolar disorder).3

Generally speaking, dual diagnosis is common in people who are addicted to drugs. When compared to the general population, people who abuse substances are twice as likely to have anxiety or mood disorders.3 What’s more, 50% of people diagnosed with mental illness have a substance abuse problem too.4

Having a dual diagnosis adds another component to your treatment plan. You’ll first receive a thorough evaluation that takes a look at both your drug problems and your mental health and then develop a comprehensive treatment plan with your clinicians. Often, a range of behavioral therapies tailored to your specific drug of choice, age, and other factors are the foundation of this plan.3 With the right treatment administered by experienced, qualified professionals, full recovery is possible.
