Jersey Shore brings visitors from around the country to enjoy a little piece of paradise, but even this beautiful city and the bustling beaches of Cape May and the Atlantic City Boardwalk are not immune to the plague of addiction that has impacted much of the United States. Sadly, New Jersey was high quite hard when the opioid epidemic began and has continued to struggle with major problems of substance abuse, drug overdose, and a general state of crisis as the direct result of addiction.

If you or a loved one is struggling in New Jersey, inpatient rehab centers that provide treatment for drug or alcohol addiction are available to help you get sober—call our helpline at 1-800-552-0697 to be connected with a specialist that can help you get admitted to a rehab that’s right for you.

What is Inpatient Addiction Treatment in New Jersey Like?

If you’ve never been to rehab, or worse, if you’ve heard horror stories about rehab, there’s a good chance you have many questions—and concerns. Many addicts state that their number one reason for NOT seeking help sooner is solely because they were worried about what to expect. Fear is a natural response to not knowing what to expect—it creates anxiety and makes picking up the phone and making the call for help seem suffocating, and near impossible.

Here’s a brief look at what you can expect when you enter a rehab center in New Jersey for the first time:

  • Intake and assessment to determine YOUR unique treatment needs.
  • Detox and medical monitoring to ensure your comfort and safety during withdrawal.
  • Supportive care from staff, other patients, and hopefully your friends and family.
  • Around-the-clock monitoring in a clean, drug and alcohol free environment.
  • Meals, transportation, living space and all necessities while you are in treatment.
  • Specialty services are sometimes offered such as spa services, massage therapy, and gym access.

Don’t allow your anxiety to prevent you from getting the well-deserved help that you need. We’re here to answer your questions anytime, day or night.

Inpatient vs. Outpatient Rehab in NJ

Choosing between the around-the-clock care of an inpatient rehabilitation program in NJ versus the laid back environment of an outpatient program can be tough. Naturally we are inclined to think “we can do it” with outpatient care—but if you struggle with a hard to beat addiction, or if you have relapsed and outpatient treatment has already been unsuccessful, you may need to further consider the benefits of a residential rehab program.

Here are just a few reasons to choose inpatient rehab FIRST and THEN follow into outpatient care:

  • You will be removed from the risk of relapse by entering a program where drugs or alcohol are strictly prohibited.
  • You will have a better chance of staying sober when you are able to focus 100% of your efforts on YOUR recovery without interruptions or distractions.
  • You will gain a higher understanding of your addiction, the recovery process and what it will REALLY take to stay sober long term—before you are faced with the outside temptations of everyday substance use that occur in the “real world.”
  • You can more seamlessly transition with the help of aftercare services if you first seek inpatient rehab and then decide to continue you counseling and therapy long-term with an outpatient center.

For help deciding what’s best based on your unique needs, call our helpline anytime, day or night. Our counselors are available to answer your questions and guide you in the right direction. We care about your needs and your recovery—nothing matters more to us than YOU getting well.

How Long Does Inpatient Drug or Alcohol Rehab Take?

Once you decide to call for help, it’s common to wonder—Just how long am I committing myself into this treatment process? Will it be fast? Will it be painful? Again a world full of questions and concern with little guidance—this can reduce your desire to seek the help you need, but don’t let that happen!

Here’s what you can expect:

  • Inpatient drug rehab is generally 30, 60 or 90-days long.
  • Long-term rehab programs offer 120 days or more of care.
  • Outpatient rehab is generally 90-days or more.
  • Detox can take 7-10 days on average unless detoxing from a benzo or other hard to beat substance such as alcohol.

The actual amount of time that you spend in rehab will depend on many factors including:

  • Your age and current health status.
  • Underlying factors related to your addiction such as PTSD or other situations which may have led to your drug use.
  • Your mental health and whether there are dual-diagnosis conditions to consider such as anxiety or depression.
  • Your commitment to recovery and how involved you stay in treatment throughout the ENTIRE process.
  • How many times you have relapsed and whether you have tried treatment before.

Remember that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to recovery that works for everyone. What works best for you could be completely different from what works for others. Don’t compare your recovery times to the amount of time it took a friend, family member or anyone else—this could only fuel transgression and upset which is not conducive to your healing process.

How Can I Pay for Drug or Alcohol Rehab in New Jersey?

Paying for inpatient drug or alcohol rehab in New Jersey can be hard. Costs can range from absolutely nothing, to $100 per day after insurance co-pages and coverage, to 20K or more per month if you enter a luxury rehab program. With so many options, and so many ranges of fees associated with each, it’s important that you do not allow yourself to get caught up in the “what ifs” and “How will I’s” because this will just make things more challenging for you. If you’re worried about paying for treatment, consider the following:

  • Health insurance coverage that pays for drug or alcohol detox and rehab (most plans provide at least some level of coverage).
  • Free programs that are offered by the state or local government.
  • Court ordered treatment programs often available through the state legal system to those in most need.
  • Sliding fee programs that provide low cost treatment solutions to those who proven financial inability to pay.
  • Financing programs for those who can legitimately enter work after they are stabilized and will have the ability to pay a loan back.

If you’re truly committed to recovery, you will find a way to pay for treatment—it’s just that simple.
