Atlantic City Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centers

Atlantic City experiences serious problems with heroin and opioid abuse just like many other parts of New Jersey. Unfortunately, this popular seaside resort city also struggles with alcohol, marijuana, and cocaine addiction.

An estimated 56% of Atlantic City residents who seek help for drug abuse are treated for heroin addiction.

After heroin, marijuana makes up 17% of treatment admissions to Atlantic City rehab centers, followed by alcohol at 13%.1

Drug and alcohol dependence can be effectively treated using detoxification, which helps you withdraw safely and comfortably from substances, and rehab, which helps rectify problematic behavior and achieve sobriety. Detox allows you to withdraw from drugs and alcohol under the care and supervision of trained medical staff who can intervene at any time to reduce the risk for complications. Some drug rehab centers may use medications as part of detox to relieve some or all withdrawal symptoms, as well as to make your recovery more comfortable.

Detox methods that may be available at Atlantic City rehab centers include:2 .Medical detox, Social detox.Tapering, if applicable (generally used for sedatives)

Detox can take place in either an inpatient or outpatient setting, though hospitalization or 24/7 medical care is generally recommended for those recovering from addiction to opioids, alcohol, and sedatives like benzodiazepines.2 If you suffer from a mild to moderate alcohol addiction, your withdrawal symptoms may be treated successfully at an outpatient alcohol rehab or detox center. It’s important to remember that detox alone is not a substitute for comprehensive substance abuse treatment. Once you are stabilized, you’ll want to transition into an addiction treatment program that can address the reasons you began abusing drugs in the first place.

    AtlantiCare Behavioral Health (ABH)

    They had well educated and experienced staff. There really wasn't much to do as far as exercising or physical activities. It was a pleasant experience considering why I was there. The staff was helpful and friendly. Could have used more one on one time with a counselor.

    The Difference Between Residential and Outpatient recovery program Rehab

    Traditional inpatient drug rehabilitation programs last for 28 to 30 days; however, specific program length will vary according to the individual patient. Inpatient programs are designed with severe substance abuse problems in mind. Here are some of the reasons why residential treatment might be considered the best option for a particular addict:

    • History of relapse following outpatient treatment
    • Heavy, consistent drug use
    • Physical dependence on substances
    • Mental or physical health conditions
    • Social impairments

    Outpatient recovery program drug and alcohol rehab can include everything from methadone therapy to individual psychiatric counseling to 12-step programs. Often, outpatient and residential treatment programs are combined, with addicts entering outpatient treatment once they check out of the residential facility. Addicts with serious family or work commitments may find outpatient treatment to be more feasible with their lifestyles.

    Defining the Success of Drug Rehabilitation

    Experts identify a successful recovery from drug and alcohol dependence based on a number of different factors, including:

    • Improvements in workplace functioning
    • Reduction in drug-related accidents or injuries
    • Increased educational success
    • Better overall health
    • Abstinence from drugs and alcohol
    • Fewer relapse incidents, with longer periods of time between relapses
    • Better mood and mental health
