Many New Brunswick, NJ residents have learned firsthand how drug use can affect every part of their lives. If you also struggle with drug or alcohol addiction, understanding the link between substance use and intimate violence and abuse may convince you to seek treatment at a New Brunswick rehab center.

In New Brunswick, 472 people entered a rehab or treatment center for some kind of alcohol or drug problem during 2016.1  Page 5 In Middlesex County as a whole, the number of people seeking treatment was over 5,700. A combined 6% of Middlesex County residents admitted for treatment that year claimed to be the victim of some kind of abuse (physical, sexual, or neglect), adding up to more than 300 all residents who were admitted for treatment.1

The American Society of Addiction Medicine reports that substance abuse is involved in 40% to 60% of cases of intimate partner violence.2 There is also evidence that women who are the victims of domestic violence also have a much higher chance of developing a problem with drug or alcohol use.3

Living in a situation that exposes you to sexual or physical violence makes it hard to focus on recovery and staying sober. Ending the cycle of violence or escaping from it is often a crucial part of ending an addiction to or dependency on drugs and/or alcohol.

Many inpatient and outpatient rehab treatments address intimate violence directly by:4

  • Providing a private living space separate from any abusers, a part of most inpatient treatment plans.
  • Offering mental health services and counseling that specifically and separately address the abuse and violence issues.
  • Training residents in anger management, which assists both those who are the victims of violence and abusers seeking addiction treatment.
  • Expanding the use of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing, and other advanced techniques that help address both addiction and domestic violence.
