Plainfield Addiction Treatment Centers

Drug and alcohol abuse are problems that affect Plainfield, New Jersey, residents. Heroin is a particularly big challenge: 38% of Plainfield substance abuse admissions in 2016 were for heroin addiction treatment, making up 14% of all heroin users in Union County.1

Most people know that heroin is a very harmful and addictive drug. Repeated use leads to tolerance, meaning that, over time, you need larger doses to feel the same high you did when you first used it. Chronic use can also lead to dependence, which means that the body becomes so used to the drug’s presence that the user feels sick when they stop taking it. Taking too much heroin can lead to overdose, and the number of heroin overdoses has continued to increase across all demographics for the past few years.2

If you’re struggling with a heroin addiction, you may no longer have control over your use of the drug, and you may have already attempted to quit unsuccessfully. At this point, treatment may be needed to safely and effectively stop using it.

Heroin treatment centers typically use a combination of medication and behavioral therapy to help people overcome their addiction. Medically assisted treatment options for heroin addiction include:2

  • Methadone.
  • Buprenorphine.
  • Naltrexone.

Behavioral therapy is often known as talk therapy, and it involves you working with a therapist or treatment group to uncover the triggers that lead to drug use so that you can learn how to avoid them and live without drugs.

Safe treatment options for overcoming heroin addiction are available. To find treatment in Plainfield, New Jersey, or nearby, browse through our directory of rehab centers and get the help you need.
