Alcohol Detox, Treatment, and Abuse in NJ
Alcohol consumption in the United States is extremely prevalent and binge drinking is no exception. With more than 25 percent of US adults admitting to binge drinking or heavy drinking within the past month (2013), it can be difficult to draw the line between having fun and struggling with addiction. It is estimated that over 16 million Americans suffer with Alcohol Use Disorders (AUDs) each year (National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism). Of those 16 million, less than 2 million receive the treatment necessary to recover. In NJ, nearly all individuals in detox and treatment programs use alcohol, either independently or in combination with other drugs. Alcohol detox can be a difficult process, but is a necessary first step when recovering from abuse.
Detox Treatment in NJ Following Alcohol Abuse
Detoxification, or detox, is the process by which toxic substances are removed from the body. In the case of alcohol abuse, detox treatment involves the discontinuation of alcohol consumption altogether. Unlike detox from other drugs, detox following alcohol abuse can be especially difficult as alcoholic beverages are easily accessible and socially acceptable. Medically facilitated detox is often recommended for this reason, as professionals can provide specialized support and resources to help an individual quit. Those struggling with alcohol addiction may also experience withdrawal symptoms during the detox treatment process. Without medical supervision, these symptoms, which range from anxiety and nausea to seizures and tremors, can be life-threatening. Following alcohol abuse, detox treatment can be pursued in NJ through GenPsych’s Ambulatory Detox program, which provides both transportation and medical care for those in need.

Treatment in NJ for Alcohol Abuse following Detox
Like detox, treatment for alcohol abuse is most successful when supervised by a medical professional. Doctors can help make the recovery process following detox as safe, healthy, and painless as possible. Treatment for alcohol abuse goes beyond addressing drinking habits, tackling other aspects of an individual’s life that may be at the root of their behaviors. Through continued involvement in a substance abuse program, an individual can learn about support systems, models of recovery, stress management, and more. These tools will provide them with long-term skills to prevent relapse and help them to live a healthy, clean life.
