Hunterdon County Drug and Alcohol Rehab Center

Hunterdon County is one of New Jersey’s wealthiest regions. However, high income doesn’t immunize the county from today’s most widespread public health issues. Those issues include substance use disorders (SUDs) related to drug or alcohol use. They also include serious mental health issues that occur separately or alongside SUDs. Are you or your loved one dealing with these kinds of problems? Customized drug and alcohol rehab programs can help you recover from them. That’s true whether or not you face additional mental health struggles.

Looking for a Hunterdon County drug and alcohol rehab center that can support your recovery needs? Talk to the treatment professionals at Excel Treatment Center. We offer specialized addiction programs that can help you break free from the effects of any SUD. We also feature primary and secondary treatment options for today’s most common mental illnesses. Every day, we promote renewed wellness for residents throughout the county.

Excel Treatment is a trusted drug rehab in New Jersey that can help. Contact our admissions team today to learn more.


SUDs and Other Mental Health Conditions in Hunterdon County

A substance use disorder is a drug- or alcohol-related condition created by any of the following:

  • A pattern of use that leads to a case of clinical addiction
  • Excessive intake that doesn’t lead to addiction but still meets the definition of life-impairing substance abuse
  • The simultaneous effects of substance abuse symptoms and addiction symptoms

Each SUD is named for the type of substance that triggers your or your loved one’s problems. The number one issue for New Jersey and the rest of the U.S. is alcohol use disorder. Hunterdon County sits in a region of New Jersey that’s moderately affected by this condition. However, heroin consumption in the region exceeds the national average. 

In contrast, mental illness rates in New Jersey and Hunterdon County fall well below the national norm. These low numbers include major depression, which causes more problems nationwide than any other mental health condition. They also include all other such conditions classified by experts as serious. 

What can we make of these figures? Compared to much of America, Hunterdon County is relatively healthy regarding SUDs. The same holds true for other mental disorders. Still, more than 5% of all preteens, teens, and adults in the region are affected by alcohol use disorder. What’s more, almost 6% of all adults qualify for a major depression diagnosis. 

In total, Hunterdon County has about 130,000 residents. The above figures indicate that thousands of these residents need help for alcohol use disorder. They also show that similar numbers of residents need depression treatment. And these figures don’t take the impact of the other kinds of SUDs and mental health issues into account.

Detox Services at a Hunterdon County Drug and Alcohol Rehab Center

Addiction leaves affected people in a state where they involuntarily seek out drugs or alcohol. It also dampens the normal ability to recognize the damaging impact of this drug-seeking behavior. Together, these two facts help explain a crucial reality for anyone in substance treatment. Namely, quitting isn’t easy, even when only milder symptoms occur.

To bring your goal of quitting within reach, you’ll need to start your rehab efforts with New Jersey drug or alcohol detox. Detox programs target one of the main issues for anyone trying to break free from addiction: withdrawal. All forms of addiction can lead to symptoms of withdrawal in rehab. These symptoms can:

  • Make you feel ill or produce even more serious effects when you quit drugs or alcohol
  • Increase your chances of halting your recovery attempt
  • Makes you feel less motivated if you remain in rehab

The help you get in detox increases your body’s ability to tolerate withdrawal. It may also directly decrease the intensity of your symptoms. You’ll receive this help in an environment that emphasizes comfort, reduces stress levels, and eliminates potential distractions. 

Excel features a full array of drug and alcohol detox options. Contact us today for more details on our customized options.

Recovery During Hunterdon County Drug Rehab or Alcohol Rehab

Following detox, your recovery enters its active phase. What does this mean? Now that you’ve quit drinking or using drugs, you must find a way to avoid returning to your old patterns. To achieve this goal, you’ll need to take active steps toward it.

The biggest weapon in active recovery from SUDs is typically psychotherapy. In therapy, you can:

  • Get help understanding how you came to develop serious substance problems
  • Learn how these problems can alter your thought processes, emotions, and daily conduct
  • Begin to recognize unhelpful thoughts, emotions, and conduct as they occur
  • Change in ways that help you get better instead of deepening your substance problems
  • Learn strategies that help you steer clear of drugs or alcohol in all kinds of situations

You may also need medication-assisted treatment (MAT), which adds a second layer of support by:

  • Using medication to address specific symptoms of alcohol or opioid addiction
  • Extending the benefits of therapy

At Excel, we feature multiple forms of therapy in our Hunterdon County drug and alcohol rehab center. We also feature medication-assisted treatment. Talk to our helpful staff to find out more.

Mental Health and Dual Diagnosis Support During Rehab

Roughly 14 million American adults have a serious mental illness that produces effects such as:

  • Notable personal distress
  • Significantly increased difficulty functioning from day to day

Mental illnesses can occur on their own or in various combinations. Many of these combinations include at least one form of substance use disorder. When they involve an SUD, they take a specific name: dual diagnosis

You have about a one in two chance of needing dual diagnosis care while in rehab. The key to this care is treating your SUD and additional mental health issues as connected problems. Special programs and treatment plans are needed to provide this kind of treatment. You’ll find comprehensive dual diagnosis services at Excel. Get more details by contacting us today.
