Drug Rehabilitation Centers in Jones County, North Carolina

Last updated: 21 December 2021


Jones County is the fifth least populous county in the state with a population of under 10,000 people in 2018, and the county seat is the town of Trenton. Like many other regions of North Carolina are families that are struggling with substance abuse and addiction. There are circumstances where locating treatment is not always easy. However, an addiction assessment is a good place to begin, and it could be done over the phone or in-person. The purpose of an assessment is to determine the extent of the addiction and what treatment options are available. The first step with rehabilitation is always detox, and this process is essential before counseling or therapy. Detoxification manages the withdrawal cravings and symptoms. The severity of the addiction determines what method of detox is required. For example, severe alcoholism, opioid addiction, and most forms of prescription drug abuse require a medically supervised withdrawal management process.

Conventional detox programs are usually standard with most inpatient or outpatient drug treatment centers. Following detox, the next step is a residential or outpatient drug treatment, and residential programs are the better options to consider. Short-term residential treatment is brief but intensive and usually offers services for three to six weeks with traditional treatment methods. Long-term drug rehabilitation centers are usually three to six months or more and treat patients with a lengthy history of addiction and chronic relapse. Following rehabilitation, aftercare should be considered, which is remaining connected to other sober people and support groups. Aftercare could include sober living homes, peer support, and 12-step meetings.
