In Ocean County, New Jersey, the small borough of South Toms River has a population of 3,685 and a land area of 1.21 square miles. Despite its diminutive size, there are still people here searching for a South Toms River methadone clinic to help them beat their opioid addiction. All methadone clinics in New Jersey are accredited by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), and that accreditation does need to be periodically renewed, either annually, or every three years, depending on the type of clinic in question. This accreditation requires that clinics follow SAMHSA’s guidelines for best practices in methadone treatment, so that patients can be reassured their clinic is being held to national standards. Medication Assisted Treatment, which combines methadone maintenance with counseling and other forms of addiction therapy for a holistic recovery plan, is recommended by SAMHSA as the most effective approach to opioid addiction recovery.
