Alcohol addiction is a serious public health issue in the country, in New Jersey, and Hoboken. Because it is easy and legal to obtain, many people turn to alcohol for various reasons. For some, it is the quickest way to ease anxiety, stress, or depression. For others, it is an incredibly tough addiction to stop. No matter which reason people use alcohol, one thing is for sure—drinking causes a plethora of health and legal problems.
Heavy drinking and binge drinking are activities that a significant number of Americans engage in. The 2020 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) reports that almost 62 million people were binge drinkers in the past month, and 17.7 million said they were heavy drinkers.
In New Jersey, the 2018 state health assessment report indicated that:
- 13.5% of adults in New Jersey binge drank in 2018
- 55.6% of people in Hudson County reported drinking any alcohol in 2018, as noted in the state health assessment report.
- Locally, in the Hoboken area and county, the statistics for those drinking alcohol, arrested for drinking under the influence (DUI), and getting help for alcohol addiction continue to rise. The state’s 2019 Substance Abuse Overview relayed valuable data about alcohol use and treatment. In Hudson County:
- Three percent or 148 people had a DUI license, and six percent were arrested for DUI.
- 1,134 individuals were admitted into substance use disorder programs for alcohol abuse in the Hoboken area, and most attended outpatient care.
It is also essential to note that the most of those who received alcohol abuse treatment obtained it in Hudson County. The vast majority of those in alcohol use disorder treatment were over the age of 18.
Alcohol abuse is destructive and costs lives, but it doesn’t have to. Summit Behavioral Health has several locations within an hour’s drive from Hoboken where you or someone you care about can receive alcohol abuse treatment in an accredited center by licensed medical and substance use professionals.
Summit Behavioral Health Drug Rehab in Hoboken
There are a good number of reasons why you should seriously consider obtaining substance use treatment for alcohol, most mentioned above. Foremost though is that alcohol is one of the leading causes of preventable death. Addiction is a chronic but treatable brain disease marked by uncontrollable, compulsive behavior despite the negative consequences. The disease’s chronic and progressive characteristics mean that the addiction can become worse if you do not get treatment.
We at Summit Behavioral Health have experience in helping those who want to end alcohol abuse and begin their life anew. Our dedicated care team values and respects your privacy and allows you your dignity. Our substance use programs and services exceed the national standards in client-to-clinician ratios, and we consistently earn high ratings from those who have received our care.
Below, you will find information about our services and what you could expect if you choose one of our campuses. The treatment levels here are offered if you have completed medical detox and are considered medically stable. Our sister facility, Serenity at Summit, provides detox, as well as residential treatment.
In New Jersey, this is called partial care, but it is the same treatment modality as partial hospitalization. When you are admitted into this level of care, you should expect to participate in therapy sessions for about 20 hours per week, which are divided into four or five times a week. On average, they may continue for up to six weeks since the sessions are considered short-term intensive programs. When your therapy session is done for the day, you return to where you live.
Our approach to treatment is that each person under our care is unique in their needs. As such, each individual’s treatment plan is tailored to their needs. This means your treatment plan will be different than anyone else’s in the partial hospitalization.
Partial hospitalization is a more intensive program than intensive outpatient and often is the level of before it. We utilize proven, evidence-based therapies that include:
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
- Dialectical Behavior Therapy
- Dual Diagnosis Therapy
Intensive outpatient treatment (IOP) is the next step in alcohol addiction treatment. Our three New Jersey locations all provide it. IOP sessions are smaller than other support groups, which gives you and your clinician more focus on your needs. Sessions usually run about three hours five times per week. They could continue for up to three months. There will be fixed milestones to reach, and when they are achieved, you will likely see your session requirements reduced. When your sessions are finished for the day, you can go home.
We know that life can be stressful and a real challenge when addiction treatment ends. This is why we developed our aftercare program. It provides you with a strong foundation of support on which to lean when needed. It also gives you the opportunity to make new friends, attend educational meetings, or gather and share experiences. We believe aftercare is just as essential as the other levels of addiction treatment and are there for you when you need us.
