A lot of people don’t know that there are many different types of treatment for the disease of addiction, but it’s important that you learn about them, so you can choose the best one for you. All of them are based on how much care you need and what types of supports will make it easiest for you to get and stay well. Care for a substance use disorder falls into four types, which many people have said help them get back to a healthy place.
The New Jersey Division of Mental Health and Addictions Services (DMHAS) provides a directory designed to help you find which offices or clinics in your area offer services for people managing the disease of addiction.
