During their 40 years of experience in addiction recovery, the treatment experts at our NJ rehab center have refined the addiction treatment programs that have proven successful for many of our clients and their families.
Below is a description of our NJ rehab addiction recovery process and links to more information about our team, therapies, New Jersey rehab facilities and aftercare.
Intake starts with a brief phone interview. During the call, we determine the severity of a client’s addiction, current substance use, substance history, and family history, in order to develop the best addiction treatment plan. We also start the process of insurance validation and make financial arrangements.
Once admitted to one of our addiction recovery programs, the treatment part of the recovery process begins (alcoholism treatment or drug addiction treatment). The average program length at our rehabilitation treatment center in NJ is from 30-90 days.
During addiction treatment, clients learn to identify the underlying causes of their addictions, and to address these issues in a constructive manner. Clients begin to learn a new way of living and coping, without alcohol or other drugs.
Each client works with an assigned counselor for individual therapy. The counselor helps identify and address the client’s underlying addiction drivers, provides relapse prevention strategies, and create a sustainable long-term recovery plan.
Clients participate in group counseling sessions, which helps them to develop a sense of community reliance in the struggle to get clean and sober. Our treatment groups foster growth and healing through their challenging but supportive treatment processes.
We offer programs for families of addicts and alcoholics at our rehab center in NJ. Family support can be a significant source of encouragement for people new in recovery. In our family therapy sessions, members discuss how they have been impacted by a loved one’s addiction and begin the work of resolving family issues so that the transition from treatment back to life can be made as smooth as possible.
Recovery is a continuing process, there is no cure for addiction. Continued support is essential to growth in recovery and to avoid relapse. Our counselors help clients develop a variety of aftercare strategies, including 12-step community support meetings, sober living homes, continued therapy sessions, ongoing monitoring, and sober life coaches.
Studies show that an ongoing monitoring program after addiction treatment gives clients the greatest chance of maintaining abstinence from alcohol and other drugs. These services may be mandatory for clients in certain professions (like healthcare workers, pilots, and transportation workers). We offer these services through our Alumni Association and certified case managers.
Sober living homes are a common next step after graduating from a rehabilitation treatment program. Sober living provides a family-like atmosphere where residents have the opportunity to live among other recovering individuals. Many sober living homes have job programs to help find employment, and offer drug testing to ensure that housemates are clean and sober.
Meetings of Twelve-Step groups like Alcoholics Anonymous® (AA®) or Narcotics Anonymous® (NA®) are offered in almost every city nationwide. AA® and NA® offer group therapy in a relaxed community-based setting. The meetings are free of charge, and are the most widely accessible recovery networks.
