What sets North Jersey Recovery Center apart is our utilization and understanding of evidence-based addiction treatment. At NJRC, we recognize that each addict has a complex and different set of pathologies and underlying reasons for their addictions. By exploring each individual’s needs through personal and group therapy, NJRC will create a customized treatment plan for you or your loved one. These plans are intended to help each patient identify their goals, as well as to create a foundation for independent, sober living.

Substance use disorder is one that plagues millions of individuals in the United States alone. If one doesn’t understand the proper way to combat such illness, the road to recovery can be quite treacherous. Luckily, treatment facilities like North Jersey Recovery Center aim to make rehab that much more accessible to those that are suffering. Finding the right treatment program should never be impossible. Instead, it should be more accessible to those who so desperately need help.

What Are The Options?

Some general substance abuse recovery options include the following:

  • Intensive Outpatient
  • Partial-Care
  • Outpatient
  • Inpatient
  • Detox
  • Dual Diagnosis
  • Therapy

When it comes to choosing the right kind of treatment, the list of different options seems endless. Although it may seem counter-intuitive, there is a method to the madness; there are so many different options because there are so many unique individuals with their own set of difficulties who struggle with substance abuse. No one person is exactly like the other; each individual has a different path to recovery. It’s because of this that so many different recovery options exist.

Partial-Care Program

NJRC provides a partial-care program that helps individuals suffering from substance abuse escape the temptations of the outside world and allows them to navigate early recovery. North Jersey Recovery Center provides a premier Partial-Care program that boasts a low staff-to-client ratio, with highly-trained addiction professionals who can keep addicts safe and comfortable.

Partial-Care patients will receive daily clinical care that reflects each individualized treatment plan. This clinical care, whether individual or group therapy, helps addicts deal with the root of their problems and embrace sobriety.

These programs are great recovery options for those who are either transitioning from inpatient to outpatient treatment. Similar to IOPs, they are somewhat of a step between the two. In fact, these programs have proven themselves to be successful in the realm of substance abuse treatment.

As far as specifics are concerned, those involved in one of these programs are typically treated 5 times a week, anywhere between 4-6 hours a day. Also, upon completing a partial-care program, patients may need to begin an outpatient program immediately so that they have the best chance of recovering in the best way possible. Again, this all depends on each patient’s unique needs.

Who is it for?

These programs work well for patients in recovery who require to following:Infographic GIF

  • Support that traditional outpatient programs lack
  • Close medical attention
  • A transition period between inpatient and outpatient rehab

Partial-care programs are immensely successful when done with a full treatment plan. For the best chance at recovering to one’s full potential, a complete recovery plan will help patients seeking a life of sobriety and stability. This is because the more time that someone spends being treated, the more exposure they have to recovery tools; the more exposure they have to recovery tools, the chances of them being restored to their full potential are very high.

Understanding the complexities of treatments like these and the differences between them and others is a bit intimidating and can oftentimes become confusing. Understanding one’s unique necessities as far as recovery is concerned is the best place to start. Once that has been figured out, it becomes that much easier to understand what kind of rehab will work well for you specifically. For those who still need the intensive nature of inpatient treatment but aren’t quite ready for the responsibility of outpatient rehab, a partial-care program is a great choice to make.

Intensive Outpatient Program

North Jersey Recovery Center also offers IOP, or intensive outpatient programming. IOP is intended for those who are able to have more involvement with the real world, or as a continuum of care for those who have previously been in inpatient settings. IOP helps addicts reintegrate into all aspects of daily life, including career assistance, information on healthy relationships, and continued monitoring/therapy.

Furthermore, in the IOP level of care at North Jersey Recovery Center, individuals learn about strategies beyond just sobriety, including resume work, budgeting, social skills, scheduling interviews and more.

More About IOPs

In a nutshell, intensive outpatient programs treat patients who have illnesses that don’t fall under the umbrella of residential treatment, and don’t require the amount of surveillance that an inpatient program would; that’s not to say their illness is not more serious though. IOPs are somewhat of a step between inpatient and outpatient treatment.

Those involved in this particular method of treatment, similarly to outpatient programs, can reside in the comfort of their own homes whilst recovering. The purpose of this is to help those involved make a smooth transition to the world surrounding the treatment facility. These programs, though they are quite similar to outpatient treatment, work in conjunction with inpatient programs. They primarily serve the functions of building a support system, providing coping mechanisms, and helping patients who struggle with relapse.

Per week, patients can visit a treatment center anywhere from 3 to 4 times weekly, or anywhere between 9-20 hours. Each individual is different, and because of this, what each patient needs will vary from case to case. The number in question may also depend on what the recovery center has to offer. Regardless, this is the biggest difference between IOPs, outpatient, and inpatient programs.

As far as what IOPs offer, in a very general sense it will usually involve some sort of 12-step program, and 10-12 hours of weekly therapy (whether it be with a group or an individual). It is worth mentioning however that each treatment center is unique in what they offer in terms of care. Regardless, even though specifics may vary, the general framework remains the same.

Outpatient Program

North Jersey Recovery Center’s outpatient program allows you to start rebuilding your personal life and mending your important family ties right away when you live at home and participate in intensive outpatient treatment.

With the Outpatient Treatment program, you are able to establish a foundation for long term recovery support in your local community right from the start of your treatment, instead of waiting until you return from living away in a rehab center.

Clients are able to continue their lives as sober individuals, while also managing the stress of everyday life with continued services and addiction programming in North Jersey. NJRC provides sober living homes where addicts can continue learning life skills, pursuing healthy relationships, and sustaining their sobriety.

There are certain requirements for our sober living program, including attending a weekly 12-step meeting, regularly checking in with a recovery coach and more. This mix of accountability and real life is the safest bet at a happy, healthy life in sobriety for you or a loved one.

More About Outpatient Programs

Outpatient treatment could be as extensive as weekly therapy, or even as simple as a primary care checkup. In some cases, people who are admitted to the hospital could be discharged the same day and their level of treatment could be considered outpatient. It allows individuals to recover with minimal disruption to their daily lives. The more convenient among the others, outpatient recovery does not require the intensive nature that inpatient treatment does.

Recovery options such as this allow one to be treated for their substance abuse with minimal disruption to their daily lives. In addition to this, it is worth mentioning that outpatient treatment allows patients to recover while residing in the comfort of their own homes. This works well for people who find inpatient or residential treatment inconvenient.
