Secaucus, New Jersey, has a small-town feel that people often look for in a place to call home. Unfortunately, it also has a fair number of residents struggling with substance abuse, which impacts that person’s family, work life, and community.
In 2014, there were 333 admissions to the emergency room because of a substance abuse issue.1 Of those, 268 were alcohol-related and 65 were drug-related.1 Despite these numbers, only 112 people sought treatment for their substance abuse issues, according to data from 2016.2
There are many different kinds of substance abuse treatment you can choose from if you have an addiction to drugs or alcohol. There’s not one single type of treatment that’s right for everyone; consult with a substance abuse treatment professional before deciding which option is best for you. Some of the program types to consider include:3
- Inpatient treatment, which can take place in a hospital, medical clinic, or residential treatment center. Here, you can get both detox and rehabilitation treatment for a comprehensive approach toward your abuse.
- Partial hospitalization, in which you’ll receive care in a medical setting but return home at the end of the day.
- Intensive outpatient, which is more in-depth than standard outpatient care because you receive 9 to 20 hours of care a week.
- Outpatient treatment, where you’ll travel to a treatment program but still live at home. These programs often meet on the weekends or evenings so that you can go to work or school.
- Methadone clinics, at which you’ll receive maintenance medication to help you with your opioid addiction and withdrawal symptoms.
Choosing a drug rehab program doesn’t have to be difficult. Once you’ve narrowed down the type of facility that’s right for you, search our directory for Secaucus rehabs to find nearby centers that meet your needs.
