If you or your loved one are struggling with a mental health disorder or substance abuse in New Jersey, you must understand the addiction treatment options available. Often, attending New Jersey drug rehabs locally isn’t enough to start and maintain sobriety. Most people with substance abuse disorders can benefit from a change of scenery that helps them relax and truly step away from the external stressors in their life.

For this reason, many New Jersey residents find choosing an out-of-state treatment center to be their best option. Our addiction and mental health treatment center in Port St. Lucie, FL, provides New Jersey residents with the support and healing opportunities needed to recover from substance abuse.

Addiction and Mental Health Treatment Services

Our treatment centers offer several evidence based therapies and treatment programs for New Jersey residents seeking addiction and mental health treatment. These include detox, inpatient treatment, intensive outpatient programs, partial hospitalization programs, dual diagnosis and aftercare treatment services such as medication management and transitional living programs.

Medically Supervised Withdrawal and Detox

medically monitored detox helps New Jersey residents remove all traces of the used substance from their body in a safe, healing environment. This is usually the first step in overcoming a drug addiction when arriving at our drug rehab centers. Although you may believe you can detox at home, the process isn’t only challenging but also has the potential for complications. This is why it’s best to detox in rehab centers with medical professionals on hand.

Inpatient Treatment Center

Unlike outpatient treatment, inpatient treatment temporarily requires you to live at our drug rehab centers. This is ideal for New Jersey residents who have been battling severe drug abuse or have relapsed after attending other drug rehab programs.

Additionally, inpatient treatment, also sometimes called residential treatment programs, is ideal for any New Jersey resident who has a co-occurring mental health disorder. Since these drug or alcohol abuse cases are much more complicated, they require more intensive treatment options.

Dual Diagnosis Treatment for Co-Occurring Disorders

co-occurring disorder is when you have a mental health disorder alongside your addiction. Often, untreated mental health problems such as mood disorders, anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder and post traumatic stress disorder are a root cause of addiction, as many turn to self-medicating to ease symptoms. Treatment providers may suggest a range of intensive therapy and medication-assisted treatment for these cases. Behavioral therapy, group therapy, individual counseling services and other recovery services may be recommended.

Traveling from New Jersey to Port St. Lucie, Florida, for dual diagnosis treatment centers is worthwhile. However, you’ll have to remember to make safe, reliable traveling plans to Florida and back to New Jersey.

It’s a long drive from New Jersey to Florida, but it’s doable in two days if this is what you’re most comfortable with. However, we highly recommend traveling with a supportive partner if you plan to drive to Florida from New Jersey.

There are also planes that fly into Palm Beach International Airport, with the flight taking only a few hours. Other transportation methods may include taking a bus or a train, but keep in mind these travel options take the longest amount of time.
