The Impact of Substance and Mental Health Problems in Essex County, NJ

Diagnosable substance problems are defined by two serious health issues: substance abuse and addiction. Substance abuse occurs when repeated, non-addicted drug or alcohol use leaves you distressed and functionally impaired. Addiction occurs when repeated drug or alcohol use leads to:

  • Physical reliance on the substance you’re using
  • Compelling urges to acquire more of that substance so you can keep using it
  • Loss of the ability to gauge or care about the impact of drinking or drug use on your health and relationships

While they’re defined separately, substance abuse and addiction interconnect in many ways.

The average person runs a greater risk for alcohol problems than any other SUD-related condition. In Essex County and nearby New Jersey communities, exposure to these kinds of problems falls on the lower end of the national spectrum. However, the region bears an uncommonly high rate of exposure to heroin. Cocaine and marijuana use also occur at significant rates.   

Statistics capture only part of the picture. Thousands of county residents face daily struggles with drugs or alcohol. Moreover, many of those affected by substance problems also face additional mental health concerns. And whether they occur separately or together, SUDs and other mental health issues require both accurate diagnosis and effective treatment.

Getting Sober to Start Your Recovery Journey

In the typical substance rehab program, getting sober is the first task of effective recovery. If your SUD symptoms are all substance abuse-related, you may be able to simply stop drinking or taking drugs. But what if your SUD involves addiction-related symptoms? In this situation, multiple factors may drive you to continue your substance use, including:

  • An inability to voluntarily limit your alcohol or drug consumption
  • Intense cravings for drugs or alcohol when you’re not actively consuming them
  • Withdrawal symptoms that make you feel ill, distressed, or even worse if you quit

To cope with these issues and reach a sober state, you need effective assistance. And the best place to get that assistance is a medical detox program supervised by recovery specialists. Detox not only provides general health support and a secure, stress-relieving environment. It also provides targeted help for the specific issues you encounter as you move toward sobriety. 

At Excel Treatment Center, we specialize in medically supervised detox. Consult us today to find out more about how we use medication, supportive care, and other detox methods.

SUD Treatment During Essex County Drug Rehab and Alcohol Rehab

Initial sobriety is rightly hailed as a recovery milestone. However, by itself, it only has limited value. Why? Unless you find ways to fortify your sobriety, it will likely be short-lived. To create durable, lasting abstinence, you need help:

  • Understanding how SUDs affect your brain and behavior
  • Coming to grips with the full impact of your SUD on your ability to function
  • Addressing issues in your life that make a return to drinking or drug use more likely
  • Recognizing the situations that increase your drug or alcohol urges
  • Devising effective strategies to cope with life’s daily challenges without resorting to substance use

All of these goals are attainable with help from an active SUD treatment program. The top resources for this kind of program are various forms of psychotherapy. Medication also helps improve recovery from certain SUDs possible.  

Excel features customized treatment plans for all manner of SUDs. In all cases, we’ll match you to options that maximize your support for enduring substance abstinence. For more details, talk to us today.

Additional Forms of Support at an Essex County Drug and Alcohol Rehab Center

You may also need help planning your life after rehab, joining a 12-step group, or reentering the workforce. Excel offers programs that help you address these and other recovery-related concerns. Talk to us today to learn more about our full slate of options.
