When a person develops a dependence on drugs or alcohol, it’s like their field of vision becomes narrower and narrower. Eventually, all they can engage with is the endless drive to seek the sensation of inebriation, sober up, and seek solace in substances once more. Even if you’re not at the stage where you’ve stopped functioning, addiction is a progressive illness, and one small trigger could tip you over the edge.
It’s best to seek out the guidance and support you need from a group of professionals who are trained to help you. At Recovery at the Crossroads, we’re passionate about providing outpatient alcohol and drug rehab to residents in Camden New Jersey to help them regain control over their lives and turn their back on substances. We understand that human beings feel at their best when they feel like valuable and productive members of society. Let us provide you with the resources and love you need to get back to your best.
New Jersey lies in between the major industrial cities of New York and Philadelphia, with lots of interstate highways, railways, and roadways. With three airports and the busiest port on the east coast — the port of Newark — its infrastructure is ideal for global and national drug trafficking. Dominican, Mexican, and Colombian criminals provide the majority of supplies into Camden County, where heroin, fentanyl, cocaine, prescription medication, and methamphetamine are the highest risk substances.
Overdoses on opioid substances have reached near-epidemic levels, which various government organizations are working hard to bring under control. In 2016, heroin accounted for 43% of drug-related hospital admissions. From working closely with prison populations to providing support for low-income and high-risk families, there’s a lot of effort being exerted to help the people who need it most.
At Recovery at the Crossroads, the community is our primary focus — and you’ll feel like you belong from day one. Negative emotions tend to drive the urge to use drugs and alcohol, and our programs help you to learn how to cope without turning to substances. There are different levels of addiction treatment in Camden, New Jersey that is appropriate according to your specific needs.
As the most intensive form of treatment here, a PHP provides daily care for people who have just completed a residential rehab program or experienced a minor relapse. This type of treatment is also appropriate for some people who are struggling with addiction but don’t have medical symptoms that are severe enough to require inpatient care.
During partial care treatment, you attend group and individual sessions to help you understand your triggers and explore methods of overcoming challenging emotions. We also provide experiential therapy, music therapy and art therapy so clients can rediscover the joys of creativity, build confidence and work through issues in a healthy way.
The next step down from a PHP in an IOP. This involves spending around 10 hours per week at the facility, leaving time for family, work and school commitments if you’re ready. You’ll get into the routine of studying or working while still receiving extensive guidance and help with your ongoing recovery journey.
You’ll take part in a mixture of group therapy, counseling, psycho-education, experiential therapy, art therapy and music therapy. We can also help you to get back into work or education.
A GOP is the next step down from an IOP on the continuum of care and involves spending a few hours each week at the clinic. At this stage, our focus is on helping each individual to thrive while sober. During this period, you become a role model for new members of the community. This is a great way of getting a taste for accountability and responsibility, which is so useful for progressing in your chosen career path.
At the GOP stage, you’ll take part in individual therapy and counseling, group therapy, experiential therapy and psycho-education.
When you’re among like-minded people who have some form of shared experience, you’re much more likely to be open and feel comfortable. When you’re in the recovery process — and throughout the rest of your life — honesty and openness are crucial. Emotions such as shame and fear can fester and cause damage when you hide them away, but when you bring them out into the light, you can deal with and overcome them.
Addiction might cause a member of the Jewish faith to back away from their religion out of shame, but this is misguided. Here at Recovery at the Crossroads, we’ll show you how our community wraps its arms around members who need it most, by the light of God.
For most observant Jews, ordinary rehab simply isn’t an option because of the dietary and devotional requirements. We offer a fully kosher addiction treatment plan with a bustling kashrut kitchen and Shabbos and Shabbat meals. Clients can expect detoxification, psychological and mental health care and aftercare.
We encourage all of our alumni and anyone who has a troubled relationship with substances to attend group meetings. They offer a unique opportunity for you to hear the stories of other people who have found comfort in substance abuse. It helps you to gain a deeper understanding of human experiences and motivations. Plus, you get the chance to tell your story and experience the healing powers of empathy and community firsthand.
