Why Choose Excel?

Our Specialized Programs

Excel Treatment Center helps people of all ages who are affected by substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders. Whether you are a Veteran, a college student, a mid-career professional, or a person facing homelessness, we believe that for us to offer the best possible treatment, we must fully understand our clients and offer specially targeted treatment. That is why we primarily provide recovery services to two key groups of sufferers: young adults, and those who consider themselves to be in their ‘mid-life’. But no matter where you are in life’s journey, if you need help, give us a call. If we aren’t the right place for you, we will help you find a place that is.

Drug overdose is the leading cause of accidental death in New Jersey. New Jersey is positioned between two of the main areas on the East Coast of the United States with the highest drug consumption. This has resulted in New Jersey areas, most specifically, Passaic, Essex, Union, Morris, Bergen, and Camden Counties, becoming overrun with illicit drugs, with many of their citizens facing substance use disorders and addiction. In the last decade, admission to drug treatment programs has risen 700%, and there have been almost 14,000 deaths from drug overdose since 2004. The rate of heroin overdose in New Jersey is three times the national average. The abuse of opioids, stimulants, heroin, and prescription drugs is at an all-time high. At Excel Treatment Center, we are doing our part to help remedy this crisis.

How Addiction Affects Young People

Young Adults & Addiction

The opioid epidemic in New Jersey has proven that while people at any age can be affected by addiction, they are most likely to start using addictive substances between the ages of 18 to 25. Unfortunately, what could start as experimentation or a recreational activity can quickly become an addiction. Many of the substances used by young people in New Jersey, such as heroin, synthetic drugs, and prescription drugs, are potentially psychologically addictive after just one use.

It is common for these young adults to find themselves in a situation where they strongly wish to stop, but the desire to abstain alone is not enough. Addiction affects the brain areas that control decision-making and impulsivity; this means that addicts’ power of choice is greatly diminished. This is a desperately frightening place to find yourself– one where confusion, remorse, shame, and fear can reign.

We at Excel Treatment Center understand the predicament that these young adults find themselves in. Our team of expert clinicians, counselors, holistic practitioners, and care staff are on hand to warmly welcome each new client to the start of their healing journey. We want to help each client get back to their life as soon as possible, so they may thrive, flourish, and follow their goals. With a customized treatment plan, including medically supportive recovery (MSR), partial care, and intensive outpatient services (IOP), we ensure each client can live a sober, positive life.

Our Specialized Program

Mid-Life Adults & Substance Abuse

Many older adults can be resistant to seeking help. There is a mistaken belief that people only develop an addiction at a young age; however, people can be vulnerable to developing one at any point in their life. Many find that they develop a drinking problem later in life, with 10-15% of people starting to drink heavily in older age4. Older adults are more likely to be ‘functional’ users with marriages, children, jobs, and responsibilities. Therefore they can often be encumbered with feelings of worthlessness, guilt, and fear. They will have habitual patterns that have enabled them to use in secret or, at the very least, hide the extent of the severity. We want all our clients to know that there is no judgment at the Excel Center. We understand that addiction is heavily impacted by an individual’s life circumstances and experiences. No two clients are the same, just as no two addictions are the same. Each one deserves help, compassion, and support to reclaim their life.

How Does It Work?

We know that most people are unfamiliar with how the rehabilitation process works. This is completely normal – our application process is designed to be as simple as possible. Our caring staff will provide all of the guidance you or your loved one needs to make the journey into recovery as streamlined as possible.

What Do We Treat?

We specialize in offering treatment to younger adults and adults in mid-life. At the Excel Center, we believe that recovery is possible for anyone, no matter what age or background. However, different groups of people face different challenges. As such, we make sure that the treatments we offer are varied and meet each of our clients’ exact needs. We consider the different life experiences, pressures, and histories of everyone who seeks help from us.
