Addiction Prevention and Recovery

Life presents us with a variety of challenges and stressors, and most people, at one time or another, may need assistance in dealing with these challenges. RWJBarnabas Health Behavioral Health services offer the best care for addiction recovery in the area.

A family doctor, psychiatrist, or qualified mental health professional usually diagnoses substance abuse. Substance abuse and dependence can occur in a variety of forms. Whether a patient is abusing an illegal narcotic, a prescribed medication, or a common substance such as alcohol, it’s important to address the situation and seek treatment and life-long recovery. Long-term abuse or misuse of any substance can lead to dependence, which can therefore lead to serious medical consequences.

If you or a loved one is dealing with an addiction, you don’t have to wait until it’s too late.
