Ridgewood Addiction Treatment Centers

In Ridgewood, New Jersey, as is the case for many cities across the United States, opioid use has become a significant problem. Thankfully, there are rehab centers that aid in the journey to sobriety for those who find themselves addicted to drugs or alcohol.

In 2016, there were 23 Ridgewood residents who were admitted to substance abuse treatment programs, and 8 of those people named heroin or other opiates as their primary drug of choice.1 In Bergen County, where Ridgewood is located, there were 3,596 residents admitted into substance abuse treatment programs.1 Of those, 34% were addicted to heroin and 7% were addicted to other opiates.1

Since opioid use disorder is prevalent in Ridgewood and across Bergen County, it is important to recognize the symptoms—especially if you suspect a family member or loved one is using opioids.

Opioids often cause feelings of euphoria directly after taken. However, these feelings then subside and are replaced with sedation, confusion, drowsiness, constipation, nausea, and even depressed respiration.2

It is possible that if you have a loved one who is using opioids, they might not use the drug with you around. If that is the case, there are behavior and lifestyle changes you might observe, including:2

  • Withdrawing from social activities and other commitments.
  • Changes in social circles.
  • Lack of interest in old hobbies.
  • Use of increasingly high doses of the drug in question.
  • Spending a lot of time procuring more or different drugs.
  • Changes in attitude as opioid use gets more frequent and uncontrollable.

They may also experience withdrawal symptoms if they go too long without using the drug, including nausea, insomnia, fever, muscle aches, and a negative mood.2 Eventually, the physical appearance of your loved one may change as their continued opioid use leaves them more prone to infections.

If you suspect your family member or loved one has been abusing opioids, browse our directory today to find rehab options in and around Ridgewood that will help them regain control of their life.
