Find a Substance Abuse Rehab Center or Resource in Union City, NJ

As the country’s second most densely populated city, Union City, NJ has its fair share of residents dealing with alcohol and drug addiction.1 There are plenty of local rehab and treatment options, but only some of them allow two people in a relationship to attend treatment together.

In 2016, 437 Hudson County residents who received substance abuse treatment were married or in a civil union.1 Receiving inpatient or outpatient treatment side-by-side with your spouse or partner can greatly improve your commitment to the program.

If you and your loved one are dealing with different addictions, you can still find programs together that cover wide varieties of drug and alcohol problems; however, you will likely need to expand your search beyond local Union City drug rehab options to fully explore co-treatment opportunities. As you partake in treatment as a couple, you may:

  • Work with the treatment team to develop individual care plans while also creating goals for your relationship.
  • Partake in behavioral couples therapy.2
  • Engage in recreational activities together that allow you to reconnect in a healthy way while sober.
  • Attend recovery support groups geared toward couples.2

Make sure your significant other is on board with attending couple’s rehab and shares your commitment to recovery before making enrollment plans in a program. If your partner is not as committed or does not feel ready, attending treatment together may do more harm than good and it might be more appropriate to attend a program by yourself.2 To find both shared and individual programs, check our database that lists rehab options in and outside of Union City.
