Detox Center For Outpatient Drug & Alcohol
New Jersey Outpatient Drug & Alcohol Detox Program
Addiction can be complicated because of ambivalence. On one hand a person wants to stop using drugs and/or alcohol but on the other hand (and at the same time) the person wants to keep using. This is very common and is characteristic of the disease of addiction. Usually patients don’t see this until it’s pointed out to them, at which point a tremendous amount of growth becomes possible.
Experienced clinicians utilizing best practices will facilitate a form of therapy called Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET) for the first several sessions to identify and overcome any ambivalence. Patients who successfully work thru this stage of therapy report a stronger desire to overcome addiction and increased motivation.
If you are wanting to do something about your addiction, you are actually in luck. There are more options for substance abuse treatment than ever before. The field of addictions treatment has never been as well funded as it currently is and there have evolved a set of best practices supported by 70+ years of research and direct patient care in clinical settings.
There are a lot of treatment options for drug or alcohol addiction, and some are better than others based on the circumstances and severity of your drug or alcohol addiction. Just stopping drugs or alcohol can cause symptoms of withdrawal and even medical issues, so it is a good idea to work with a physician during this process. We provide a safe, confidential, and comfortable medical detox program to help ease your withdrawal process.
What is an Outpatient Detox Program?
A drug & alcohol outpatient detox means that you visit our facilities several times over the course of a few weeks, but that you don’t stay with us – you stay at home. Our Detox Center in NYC is better for people with a less severe, or newer addiction and who also have a good support network at home. You’d have more flexibility – we’d work with you to schedule your outpatient sessions around your normal routine. One thing to consider is how well you think you’ll do on your own – if you don’t believe that you have the ability to say no when you’re on your own, our outpatient program isn’t for you.
