It is a great program, the only one that I have seen with people of accreditation that have been through the same ordeal.. the reason it worked for me is because I trusted the professionals to know more than I did. It makes a difference.

I had a family member struggling to get off of his alcohol addiction safely and on his own. He was having a REALLY hard time with it and got to the point where he needed professional help. So after many phone calls and discussions with many places we decided to put him on a plane and send him to Princeton to detox. Well he made it through the week and is off to rehab now. I spoke to him about his time at Princeton and he had nothing but great things to say about the facility and the staff. More importantly he sounded so much clearer, better, and more determined than the day we sent him off. I seen some bad reviews here on Google which did concern me somewhat but I can tell you my experience on the phone with the staff during his week there and his experience while there according to him was excellent. If you are considering Princeton I just have to say they did an excellent superb job and my brother is now 8 days sober and sounds healthy and amazing. We still have a long road ahead of us but I am great-full Princeton was there to get him through the detox phase of his path. I have nothing at all negative to say about his time there.

I didn’t know what to expect going in, but the people there treated me so good, made sure I was as comfortable as possible and even made sure I had food to eat because I’m vegetarian and gluten free. I’m 8 months sober and so grateful to feel better!

Princeton detox was a very professional, clean and supportive process and environment. The 24 hr technicians are all recovering addicts and have great empathy. The food was amazing prepared by chefs. The nursing staff was also amazing and available 24/7. There were a few group therapy sessions and a few visits with a counselor but the main purpose is the detox.

Princeton exceeded my expectations and then some. The nurses, doctors, and staff were super compassionate and treated me like an individual and not a number. I wish I could go back and thank them personally. Food is great, and facility is basically brand new.

I loved the thoroughness and sincerity that all staff had for every detail of my treatment. They had realistic expectations. Great food . At one point I did not have the money to cover my Suboxone medication so they graciously covered it for me. They said the owner agreed to pay for it. it was a couple hundred dollars that meant the world to me. So to whoever the owner is thank you so much

Learn More About Detox

Addiction is an extremely complex and individualized disorder – one that affects men and women of all ages and social backgrounds in a variety of ways. The consequences of addiction range from physical to emotional and psychological. Those struggling with addictive disorders not only repeatedly put themselves in physical danger, but they wreak emotional havoc in their own lives and in the lives of their loved ones. Those suffering from addiction typically also face problems at work or school, and have an extremely difficult time maintaining jobs, grades, and general motivation and productivity. Fortunately, because addiction is such a serious and widespread problem, many resources are available to those looking to recover. While those in active addiction may believe that recovery is an impossible feat, beginning the journey towards a joyous, fulfilled, and substance-free lifestyle is possible for anyone – no matter how far down the scale they have gone.

Drug Detox

Drug detox is a blanket term used to describe any detoxification facility that assists individuals who have struggled with drug addiction, and are looking to begin living drug-free lives. If an individual has been using drugs for an extended period of time, or if he or she has been abusing a great quantity of drugs over a shorter period of time, detox will precede long-term inpatient treatment. In this sense, drug detox is utilized to physically stabilize an individual before he or she begins healing emotionally and mentally. Many believe that they can detox themselves at home; however, doing so may prove to be dangerous as well as ineffective. Oftentimes, there are medical complications when it comes to withdrawal. Though complications may not be life-threatening, they can cause unnecessary injury if a detoxing individually is not being medically supervised.

At Princeton Detox & Recovery Center we have extensive experience treating individuals who struggle with addiction, regardless of what substance or combination of substances they have been using. Because the symptoms of withdrawal can be so uncomfortable, and because medical complications have been known to occur, professional supervision is crucial. Not only does medical monitoring result in a more safe detox, but it helps to prevent potential relapse.

Alcohol Detox

Those who have struggled with alcoholism are more likely to experience severe and potentially life-threatening symptoms of withdrawal. Seeing as alcohol is a depressant, it alters your brain function, and changes the way in which your central nervous system communicates. If you consistently abuse alcohol for an extended period of time, the way your brain functions will change in a major way. When use is abruptly stopped, the brain will remain in an altered state, leading to serious symptoms of physical and psychological withdrawal. Mild symptoms including headache, stomach cramping, nausea, vomiting, sweating, and shaky hands, will begin within several hours of the last drink. More serious symptoms of withdrawal will likely begin to take hold within the next 24 to 48 hours. These symptoms may include rapid heart rate, increased blood pressure, tremors, severe confusion, depression, anxiety, and even hallucinations (known as delirium tremens). These symptoms can be harshly uncomfortable – even life-threatening if not adequately monitored.

There Is Hope!

We Can Help

At Princeton Detox & Recovery Center we are available to help. Our experienced and compassionate staff members are accessible 24-hours a day to help our clients with anything and everything they may need. We have licensed medical professionals and seasoned psychiatrists in-house, all of whom work together to provide the most comfortable and successful addiction treatment experience possible.
