Union City Addiction Treatment Centers

If you live in Union City, New Jersey, and feel alone or hopeless because of a problem with drugs or alcohol, it could be helpful to know that the city has a significant population of people going through similar circumstances.

During 2016, Union City accounted for 8% of all total substance abuse admissions in Hudson County, with 342 people entering a treatment facility. They also accounted for 11% of all alcohol and 11% of all cocaine treatment admissions in the county, with 116 and 25, respectively.1 The three most widely used drugs in the city itself include alcohol, marijuana, and heroin.1

Are you abusing drugs or alcohol? If so, the best way to get help is to seek substance abuse rehabilitation services. When deciding which center is right for you, one of the choices you’ll need to make is whether inpatient or outpatient treatment is best for you.

Inpatient treatment is the more intensive setting of the two, because it involves living 24/7 at the facility. In this environment, you receive structured care, safe housing, and medical attention as you recover your health. Generally, you’ll receive a number of behavioral therapies to treat your mental and emotional addiction. You’ll also be given tools to successfully reintegrate yourself into your normal life when you leave the facility.

Some examples of residential treatment settings include:2

  • Recovery housing, which offers you a place to live on a short-term basis while you get back on your feet.
  • Short-term residential treatment, which focuses on detox, counseling, and preparation for long-term, community-based care.
  • Therapeutic communities where you can live for 6 to 12 months to completely change your approach toward life without drugs or alcohol.

Outpatient programs utilize many of the same behavioral therapies and counseling sessions as inpatient treatment programs, but the big difference is that you continue to live at home. This allows you to hold down a job or go to school. Typically, you attend multiple treatment sessions each week at the facility, with fewer visits required as you improve. Overall, it’s best suited for people with a strong support system from their loved ones who can help them manage during their time away from the support of the recovery program.2

Both inpatient and outpatient treatment are excellent ways to end to your drug or alcohol addiction. For more information, browse our directory for Union City rehabs to see which facilities are available near you.
