    The first step in recovery for many is detox. Moreover, detox sets them up for successful long-term outcomes in recovery. However, withdrawal symptoms during detox can seem overwhelming.

    As a result, they can deter many from getting treatment. Often, those who are ready to begin detox still worry about undergoing withdrawal in a treatment center. Furthermore, they may feel scared and unsafe with this idea.

    Despite this, at MD Home Detox, we know detoxing alone can be dangerous—even fatal. In addition, we understand the importance of detoxing in a place that feels safe and comfortable. Fortunately, for this reason, at-home detox in New Jersey is available through MD Home Detox. Furthermore, our detox team comes to the individual. In turn, they get the medical help they need in the comfort of their home.

    New Jersey Addiction Statistics

    New Jersey is diverse with its charming countryside, scenic highways, as well as its infamous shoreline. Home to almost 9 million people, this state has plenty of appeal to residents and tourists. Yet, New Jersey also has some of the highest rates of substance use and drug overdoses in the nation. 

    To add, unfortunately, the opioid epidemic has taken its toll on New Jersey, as it has on the rest of the country. As a result, over 3,000 lethal overdoses occurred in New Jersey in 2019. Moreover, most of these involve opioids. To continue, in the same year, almost 50,000 individuals started treatment in New Jersey for opioids.

    Furthermore, this included heroin, the state’s most commonly used drug as well. In fact, there has been a significant increase in the use of fentanyl—a synthetic opioid 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine. Drugs are often laced with this powerful substance. Moreover, sometimes the person is completely unaware, in turn leading to severe addiction.

    Moreover, along with spikes in opioid use, alcohol abuse continues to be a serious problem in New Jersey. In fact, in 2017, almost 17% of the state’s residents reported binge drinking within the past 30 days. Besides this, it was also reported the highest rates of binge drinking in New Jersey occurred in the Hispanic community. Lastly, the counties with over a 20% binge drinking rate included Monmouth and Sussex.

    Thus, these statistics highlight the need for addiction treatment in New Jersey. Hence,that is why MD Home Detox’s services are available throughout the state, making this first step more accessible than ever.

    Which Substances Can New Jersey Detox Services Help With?

    It is important that people clear their bodies of any illicit or misused substances before seeking further addiction treatment. Nevertheless, our care team handles both alcohol as well as drug withdrawal symptoms.

    Therefore, we suggest medically-supervised detox for the following drugs, among others:

    • Heroin
    • Fentanyl
    • Prescription opioids (such as morphine, oxycodone, and hydrocodone)
    • Benzodiazepines (such as Xanax, Valium, Ativan)
    • Barbiturates and sleep aids
    • Cocaine
    • Amphetamines 
    • Prescription stimulants (such as Adderall and Ritalin)  

    Who Qualifies for an At-Home Detox in New Jersey?

    At-home detox is best for those in the early stages of addiction or at low risk of relapse. Thus, people with a long-term, severe addiction might need inpatient detox. This is because they could have life-threatening withdrawal symptoms. On the other hand, someone with mild to moderate withdrawal symptoms could do well in at-home detox.

    In addition, a person needs to have a safe and supportive place to live. Additionally, the client needs family and loved ones nearby who support their recovery for at-home detox. If, for instance, other people in the home use drugs or drink, then they should consider inpatient detox and rehab instead.

    Nonetheless, our New Jersey detox team will monitor each client’s progress. That way, we can ensure safety and properly follow the program. If unexpected medical issues arise during home detox, we can help our clients get into an inpatient detox center or hospital.

    What Happens During an At-Home Detox in New Jersey?

    Detox helps those physically and/or psychologically dependent on a substance to clear their systems of all toxins. Thus, this process should always take place under medical supervision. Hence, this is why we monitor those in our at-home detox program. 

    Each at-home detox program is customized to fit the clients’ needs and preferences. However, we do follow a set protocol. These steps ensure that we have covered all of the bases, so they can receive the necessary care.

    This protocol includes the following steps:

    • • Initial Evaluation: Our team will gather clients’ medical history, including their history of substance use. Knowing this information while learning more about their home environment, triggers, and relationship with their family or roommates helps our team create an effective treatment plan. 
    • • Examination: Their physical health is also vital to determine their detox needs. Furthermore, before setting their plan into motion, we will need to conduct a full exam, which includes laboratory testing, for instance. 
    • • At-Home Detox Begins: Our nursing staff will come to their home to assure their comfort and safety. Then, we administer medications as needed to manage withdrawal symptoms and ease cravings.

    The main point of at-home detox is to prepare people for continued addiction treatment. Fortunately, after detox, we can, in turn, assist them in finding additional programming as well.

    What Withdrawal Symptoms Should I Expect?

    People will most likely experience withdrawal symptoms as their body learns how to function without drugs or alcohol. However, this period can be uncomfortable. Despite any discomfort, MD Home Detox will be with them every step of the way. Therefore, at the end of this process, they will feel renewed.

    Withdrawal symptoms as well as their severity depend on the substance used, how often it is used, and for how long it’s been used. Furthermore, if a person combined different types of drugs together, for example, they can expect withdrawal symptoms reflecting that.

    Generally, clients can expect to have some degree of the following symptoms: 

    • Upset stomach (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea)
    • Sore muscles and aches
    • Increased blood pressure/heart rate
    • Shakiness/tremors
    • Fever/chills
    • Sleep issues
    • Changes in appetite
    • Excessive sweating
    • Anxiety/depression
    • Intense cravings
    • In severe cases: hallucinations/delusions/seizures

    Will Insurance Cover My Detox in New Jersey?

    In many cases, the insurance plan will at least partially cover the cost of detox. Following the Affordable Care Act (ACA), Marketplace insurers must consider behavioral health coverage, including substance use treatment, under their essential health benefits. Thus, it is important to remember that this only applies to in-network providers.

    At MD Home Detox, we work with many insurance companies to make our services as accessible as possible. People can use our insurance verification form to see if they are covered. In addition, we are happy to answer any questions about treatment costs as well as discuss available payment plans.

    Benefits of At-Home Detox

    Unlike traditional detox, at-home treatment gives our clients the ability to go through detox in the comfort of their own homes with the support of their loved ones. In addition, at-home boasts a higher success rate in recovery.

    Other benefits of our at-home detox in New Jersey include:

    Lower Cost

    When participating in a medically-assisted home detox, the clients’ home becomes the treatment facility. Thus, therefore prevents them from paying for a daily bed and gratuitous services.

    Reduced Time Commitment 

    Receiving treatment in their home allows them to continue their daily routine without taking time off to reside at a treatment center.

    Individualized Services

    Clients will get the same care and services as they would during inpatient detox. However, you will have direct attention and 100% of the team’s focus.


    People know their home better than anyone, and we know the withdrawal and detox process. Together, we can come up with effective ways to keep them comfortable.

    Quality Care

    Our private nursing staff stays with them during the process, providing medications, and checking and monitoring their vitals. They also ensure they get an adequate amount of nutrition, hydration, and sleep.

    What Happens After At-Home Detox in New Jersey?

    After detox, most people move on to aftercare. Additionally, aftercare can include many types of treatments. After all, detox is only the first step in recovery. Therefore, each client needs to think about the next steps as they are in detox.

    Most clients continue treatment after detox in some of the following types of programs:

    • Residential rehab
    • Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
    • Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
    • Outpatient therapy
    • Sober living homes
    • Peer support groups

    While MD Home Detox helps with at-home detox and mental health stabilization, we also help our clients make referrals to trusted providers. Furthermore, we work with many aftercare providers so our clients get the help they need.

    However, we do offer some aftercare services, such as:

    • Sober companions mentor people in early recovery. That way, they can have someone for support and guidance. In addition, a companion can keep clients accountable for their sobriety.
    • Drug test monitoring and aftercare also help people stay accountable for sobriety. An aftercare case manager will work with clients to stay sober and work on their recovery goals.

    No matter what our clients choose, MD Home Detox will help them create an aftercare plan during detox. As a result, they can continue moving forward without gaps in treatment as well.
