Find Alcohol Rehabilitation and Drug Rehab Facilities in Edison

There are several drug rehab options available to individuals living in the Edison area. It is important to understand each treatment option that is available in Edison, New Jersey, in order to choose the appropriate treatment approach for yourself or a loved one. Choosing the proper drug or alcohol rehab program in Edison, NJ. is the most important factor in the treatment of drug abuse, drug addiction and alcoholism. The following information will help you to understand your various treatment options so that you have the greatest chance of a successful outcome.

Let's take a look at the various treatment options that coincide with the condition of the individual seeking treatment.

Outpatient drug or alcohol rehab programs do not require patients to reside in a treatment facility during the treatment process; therefore, employment and home activities can continue during the treatment process. Typically, outpatient treatment is a method employed only in the case of moderate drug and/or alcohol use, that has not advanced to the stages of dependence or addiction.

An inpatient alcohol and drug rehab program is the correct treatment method for severe cases of drug addiction and alcoholism. Unlike out-patient rehab programs which can leave an individual susceptible to continually relapsing, inpatient drug and alcohol rehabs offer a controlled, safe environment where a person can get maximum benefit in the recovery process.

Short term drug and alcohol rehabs are inpatient treatment programs which are best suited for people that have reached the stage of addiction but the addiction stage is a year or less. The typical length of stay is 30 days or less in an inpatient treatment facility. Because of the brief duration of a short-term rehab program, people that have struggled with a severe addiction for years do not usually benefit from this method of treatment.

Long term drug and alcohol rehab provides treatment for people that have developed advanced stages of drug addiction and alcoholism. This is the only method of treatment that has shown to be effective for long term advanced cases of addiction. Long term drug and alcohol rehab programs are 60 to 90 days and longer.

Research studies show conclusively that the longer a severe drug or alcohol addicted person stays in treatment, the better the outcome. As such, the benefits of a long term drug or alcohol rehab should be taken into serious consideration when deciding upon treatment for a long term severe addiction problem.

A dual diagnosis drug or alcohol rehab may be the correct choice if one suspects that the person that is addicted to a drugs and/or alcohol due to an underlying mental health issue. Co-existing conditions are very common and both can be treated through a regime of detoxification, drug or alcohol rehabilitation, and therapy.

According to the National Association of Diaconate Directors, dual-diagnosis rehab centers should use a variety of therapy when treating those with this condition. Cognitive-behavioral therapy teaches the drug or alcohol abuser how to better deal with their thoughts and behaviors regarding their condition. Behavior management is an additional form of therapy which centers on their behaviors and actions concerning their substance abuse.

Drug or alcohol detoxification is a process that deals with the mental and physical withdrawal symptoms that are brought on when a drug or alcohol addicted person stops using the substance they are dependent on abruptly. The severity of these withdrawal symptoms is dependent upon the type of substance or substances the person is addicted to and how long they have been using. Most often, detox has a duration of 3 days to a week but in some cases such as methadone and suboxone it can be much longer.

It is important to realize that for addiction, detox is only the first step of addressing the problem. Drug and alcohol addiction is a complex problem, psychological symptoms may persist long after physical addiction symptoms have passed. Individuals not only develop a physical dependence to drugs and alcohol but in most cases, emotional and psychological dependence as well. Detox should be followed with an extensive treatment program so that the individual is emotionally and psychologically prepared for the future.

As you can imagine, one doesn't want too many failures piling up due to choosing incorrect treatment options, as the person will become hopeless and give up altogether. So it is vital to understand your options and seek the proper level of care for the severity of the substance abuse problem.

Drug Facts

Oxycodone is a painkiller derived from the opium poppy plant. It is a synthetic drug, meaning that it is chemically altered in the laboratory. Sold mostly in prescription pill form, oxycodone is meant to be used by people suffering moderate to severe pain that is expected to last for more than a few weeks. The drug must be used with great care, since it can be habit-forming even for people who take it as directed. For those who use it illegally, it can be as addictive—and every bit as dangerous—as heroin. Oxycodone can be found in many prescription painkillers. But it is mainly associated with three brand-name drugs: 1) Percocet, a combination of oxycodone hydrochloride and acetaminophen (Tylenol); 2) Percodan, a combination of oxycodone hydrochloride and aspirin; and 3) OxyContin, a time-release formula of oxycodone hydrochloride. These prescription medicines also find their way into drug dealers' hands and are sold to users who want to get high. Since its introduction in the mid-1990s, OxyContin, in particular, has become a widely abused drug in some parts of the United States. The federal government and the maker of the drug, Purdue Pharma, are working together to reduce OxyContin abuse.
Ecstasy affects a number of body systems. The effects of ecstasy on the brain system are what lead to both the desired and undesired mental effects of the drug. Within the brain, there are different groups of chemical messengers called neurotransmitters that are responsible for the communication within the brain and between the brain and the body. Neurotransmitters flow from one neuron (nerve cell) to another, where they individually attach to sites called receptors, and trigger a signal or message from the sending neuron. Pumps, called transporters, then return neurotransmitters to the neuron that released them to be stored for future use.
Teens who binge drink run the chance of becoming alcohol dependent later in life -- as early as their mid-20s -- according to a 10-year study of 2,000 teenagers in Australia.
Heroin is the most commonly used opioid sold on the streets. Some start with snorting and then progress to intravenous (IV) use because it is the most potent and rapid. First there is euphoria and, for some, an orgasm like experience. This is followed by a dream state, constricted pupils, slow pulse and flushed face that lasts several hours. Tolerance develops and more of the drug must be used to give the same pleasure. As dependence, i.e., addiction develops, the user must spend more and more time obtaining the drug and must resort to crime such as theft and/or prostitution to get the next “fix”, usually about three a day. Since street drugs are almost always adulterated in order to increase profitability for the dealer, the purchaser never knows what strength or what other substances may have been added. Also, when the user can no longer inject into the damaged veins-note the needle marks in the arms/legs- he/she must resort to “skin popping” into the fatty tissue or muscle. Whether injected in vein or other tissues the often contaminated drug causes many serious infections in the heart, muscle or skin. Sharing needles with other users is equally dangerous because an ill user can pass his/her infection along through a contaminated syringe or needle. When the user is no longer able to obtain a “fix” due to illness, lack of money etc., withdrawal symptoms begin, usually in six to eight hours but for some in as little as five hours.
