Summit Addiction Treatment Centers

The residents of Summit, New Jersey, struggle with opioid and alcohol abuse much like many other parts of the Garden State and the U.S.

An estimated 44% of treatment admissions to Summit drug rehab centers are for addiction to heroin and other opiates, which contributed to a rate of 16 overdose deaths per 100,000 people in New Jersey in 2016.1,2 Alcohol use is also prominent in this Union County city, where 38% of people who have this type of addiction receive treatment at local rehab centers.1

Opioid and alcohol dependence may be treated using medications that reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms for these substances. Some medications block feelings of euphoria induced by drugs and alcohol or cause unpleasant sensations, such as nausea and vomiting, when a substance is used while on the medication.3

Medications used to treat alcohol and opioid dependence include:4

  • Disulfiram, which causes unpleasant side effects, such as headache and chest pain when consuming alcohol.
  • Acamprosate, which balances brain processes disrupted by heavy drinking to minimize long-term withdrawal symptoms.
  • Naltrexone, which blocks feelings of euphoria, sedation, and intoxication caused by opioids and alcohol.
  • Methadone, which prevents opioid withdrawal symptoms.
  • Buprenorphine, which suppresses and reduces opioid cravings.

Addiction treatment centers may use medications combined with counseling and behavioral therapy to help you overcome addiction, while also lowering your risk for alcohol poisoning or an opioid overdose.4 This treatment approach is known as medication-assisted treatment and is available at many rehab centers.
