North Plainfield Addiction Treatment Centers

The borough of North Plainfield, New Jersey, struggles with drug and alcohol abuse just like many other parts of New Jersey, where the rate of opioid-related deaths is higher than the national average.1

Alcohol and opioids are two of the most commonly abused substances among people who live in North Plainfield. An estimated 40% of admissions to nearby addiction treatment centers are for alcohol, and heroin and other opiates like hydrocodone and oxycodone represent 30% of admissions to North Plainfield drug rehab centers.2

Certain types of drug and alcohol withdrawal can be effectively treated using medical detox. Withdrawal symptoms can be severe and life-threatening in some cases, but medical detox uses medications that may help relieve pain and discomfort. For instance, an alcohol rehab center may use benzodiazepines to treat the alcohol withdrawal symptoms of insomnia, anxiety, and seizures.3

Medications commonly used to manage drug and alcohol withdrawal include:4

  • Buprenorphine, which reduces or eliminates opioid withdrawal symptoms and cravings.
  • Methadone, which prevents opioid withdrawal symptoms and reduces cravings.
  • Acamprosate, which reduces protracted alcohol withdrawal symptoms.

Detox is only the first stage of addiction treatment and does not address the psychological and behavioral problems associated with drug and alcohol use disorders.5 Detox should be followed with behavioral therapies like group counseling that teach you how to lead a healthier, drug-free lifestyle.5

If you need help recovering from addiction, understand that you are not alone and that professional treatment is within reach.
