Choose from 21 in Newark, NJ

Newark, New Jersey is a city that prides itself on its hard work ethics—just like the state itself. However, as we all know, hard work and pride don't always lead to happiness: just ask any Bruce Springsteen song. The American Dream is spangled with people sacrificing love for pride and joy for hard work only to end up bitter, worn and forlorn. People who live with this pedagogy often use drugs and Alcohol to compensate.

 How it Can Happen

People can turn from casual, habitual users to full-blown despondent folks in the throes of addiction. These people use addiction as a means of escaping the present, but drug and Alcohol addiction is a continual tease with death. The trick is realizing that you have power and don't have to flirt with death so much. You can live in the moment and live for love, truth and hope.

Help is Around the Corner

If you need help, consider going to treatment in an inpatient or outpatient facility. You can improve yourself quickly with the right community and support system for your eventual detox. Many who suffer from addiction self-medicate to ease their symptoms; this is called a co-occurring disorder. At treatment facilities people will learn how to confront the underlying issues of their addiction; they will learn the tools to heal themselves. If a loved one is suffering from addiction, one of the best ways to get them help is by holding an intervention, where you and other close family members and friends express your worries and hope to the addicted individual. If you are in Newark and are living through the needle, pipe or crack, you aren’t lost. Your life has potential and it's time to open up the biggest present to yourself: the present.
