Trenton Addiction Treatment Centers

Trenton is the capital city of New Jersey, which makes it an ideal place to live if you’re involved in state government. Regardless of occupation, however, Trenton residents are not immune to the substance abuse problems that most large cities have.

In 2016, Trenton led substance abuse treatment admissions in Mercer County, accounting for 1,542 out of 3,130 admissions in the region.1 Of those admissions, 498 were for heroin abuse, 418 were for alcohol abuse, and 344 were for marijuana abuse.1

Whether you have a heroin addiction or abuse alcohol, substance abuse treatment is a way for you to take back your life. Narrowing down your treatment options can be confusing sometimes, but one decision will likely be whether inpatient or outpatient treatment is the best choice for you.

Inpatient treatment is the more intensive of the two options since it requires you to live at a facility for a set period of time. You’ll receive 24-hour care and monitoring to ensure you safely manage the process of getting and staying sober. Inpatient treatment can last anywhere from a few weeks to a year, giving you the time you need to receive counseling and learn how to live without abusing substances in your everyday life. Inpatient treatment is the preferred setting for people with a severe addiction, a dual diagnosis, or lack of support at home.2

Outpatient therapy differs primarily in the fact that you live at home while attending your substance abuse treatment at a facility. Your treatment might include meeting with a behavioral health counselor for cognitive-behavioral therapy, motivational incentives, and family therapy several times a week; you’ll also attend various group therapies focused on different areas of your addiction and how to live sober. Outpatient treatment is indicated for people with less severe addictions who have strong support from their loved ones and live in a healthy environment. 2
