Get Support for Recovery with
New Jersey Drug & Alcohol Detox

If you’re struggling with the physical, emotional, and personal challenges of drug and alcohol addiction, you know how much there can be to overcome. Stopping isn’t a matter of willpower – the power of addiction can be too strong. If you stop suddenly, you can experience severe and often life-threatening symptoms and complications as your body is cleared of substances.

The longer you’ve been struggling with addiction, the more powerful it can be. The physiological effects include chemical imbalances with neurotransmitters, which can cause depression, poor responses to stress, uncontrollable mood swings, and uncomfortable physical symptoms.

An intensive drug and alcohol detox program gives you a safe, medically controlled environment to manage withdrawal symptoms with careful monitoring, medication assistance, and the support of clinical staff. As the symptoms subside, you can have a fresh start to address the mental and emotional effects for recovery.

You don’t have to go it alone.

What Is Drug &
Alcohol Detox?

Drug and alcohol detoxification, also known as detox, is a medically assisted process that allows your body to clear drugs and alcohol while minimizing the risk of severe complications. Without medical supervision, patients may experience potentially dangerous symptoms like stroke, seizures, or death.

Even if you want to quit on your own, it’s important to NEVER try to detox alone. Drug and alcohol addiction isn’t a failure of willpower – it’s a physiological hold on your body. The support and medical guidance of a clinical care team can keep you as comfortable and safe as possible while your body heals.

How Long Does
Detox Take?

Everyone’s detox experience is different. The length and severity of your addiction impacts the time for detox, as well as your health, family history, or any co-occurring disorders. Withdrawal symptoms can be moderate to intense, but they’re carefully managed by medical professionals. Generally, detox lasts about a week or less.

This process can be short and difficult, but it’s not the end of the journey. Like all chronic conditions, drug and alcohol addiction can be relentless. You may need additional rehab to control the last effects of addiction.

The Stages
of Detox

Detox can vary between individuals, but we approach the evaluation with a standardized process to determine the nature of the addiction and the specific challenges for the individual. Patients undergo mental and physical health assessments from a clinical care team to develop a tailored substance abuse treatment plan. This may include details about the duration, intensity, and substances, family history, and medical history.

If needed, patients are stabilized to prepare for the detox process. Patients can go over what to expect from treatments, the possible side effects, and the medications involved in the process. This is an opportunity to ask questions and address any concerns

Possible Side Effects
of Detox

The detox experience is often different for each individual as their body adapts to no longer having drugs or alcohol. A range of symptoms are possible, including:

Anxiety and depression

Nausea and stomach pain, including vomiting and diarrhea

Flu-like symptoms, fever, body aches, running nose




Heart Palpitations


Patients are monitored through the entire detox process, including vitals like blood pressure, heart rate, fluid levels, temperature, and respiration. The medications and dosages may be adjusted as needed to manage symptoms and minimize the risks of complications.
