Jersey City, NJ (PRWEB) August 31, 2013
Alcohol Treatment Jersey City has recently begun offering new treatment programs for alcohol addiction. A drug that is found in every grocery store, restaurant, and gas station is extremely hard to avoid once out of treatment. This is why the new therapies available focus on group counseling and therapy, social acceptance, and ways to interact in situations where alcohol will be present.
Many people are unaware that alcohol is one of the most hazardous and addictive drugs. Since it is legal to purchase and consume over the age of 21, it is relatively easy to abuse compared to other drugs. For this reason, it is often overlooked by the abuser and those close to him. Alcohol can be abused under the guise of social drinking. For these reasons, alcohol addiction is one of the hardest to treat, because once a person has left treatment, they will come face to face with their addiction on an almost daily basis.
A certified addiction specialist at Alcohol Treatment Jersey City, Lindsey W., explains why the new treatment programs are so effective. “Reentering the world as a recovering addict is difficult enough, but when you must come face to face with your addiction almost every day, it becomes even more difficult. Our new programs teach addicts new ways to approach regular situations, such as dining out or attending a party for work, since avoidance is not an option.” He states, “If you are addicted to something illegal, such as cocaine, it is easier to stay away from situations where people will be using it.”
In addition to group counseling and therapy, individual sessions are given to address each person’s own unique aspects of addiction. Counseling sessions with family members and close friends are available, as it is important to build a solid and understanding support system outside of the addiction treatment center. Lindsey emphasizes this by stating, “It is vital for a person with an addiction to feel understood, and that feeling has to extend to those he interacts with on a daily basis outside of the rehab center.”
Alcohol Treatment Jersey City’s new treatment programs can help addicts learn to enjoy their time in a sober way. Offering yoga, art, exercise, and many more options helps aid in recovery from substance abuse while exposing patients to new, healthy hobbies. Alcohol Treatment Jersey City’s new treatment programs make recovering from alcohol addiction and going on to enjoy social outings while sober possible.
