Addiction Treatment In Amherst, NY

In order to be successful, addiction treatment must follow a patient-centered approach. Your treatment plan should be individualized so that your unique needs are met. The ideal treatment plan also meets you where are are at that moment in your recovery.

Depending on your needs, this could mean detox support, inpatient care, transitional housing, or extensive aftercare services.

This is why it’s vital to attend an alcohol and drug detox program that is medically supervised. Both outpatient and inpatient options are available to help get you through withdrawal and prepare you for treatment.

Inpatient Addiction Treatment

Considered to be the most supportive and comprehensive option for treating substance use disorders, inpatient addiction treatment includes access to a variety of proven therapeutic and clinical approaches. Interaction with both professionals and peers in a supportive environment and 24-hour supervision ensure that you receive the care you need to recover.

Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient treatment is the ideal option if you’ve already completed inpatient treatment or have a strong support system you can count on. In some cases, this type of treatment is offered at different times during the day and/or evening. Although outpatient programs have more flexibility, they’re only recommended for mild to moderate addictions.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is a specific program that is overseen by a medical staff. Though it shares some similarities with detox in that it uses medicines to help with withdrawal symptoms, it combines them with behavioral therapy to address the needs of those who struggle with alcohol and opioid use disorders.

Aftercare And Alumni Services

Though the specific options can vary widely from facility to facility, having access to ongoing support is a crucial factor in recovery. Not only are top-notch treatment centers that do so acknowledging the fact that substance use disorder is a lifelong and chronic condition, they’re also providing key services like 12-step programs, peer support, sober-living housing, and more.

Length Of Addiction Treatment

For nearly everyone who seeks treatment for a substance use disorder, the longer treatment is maintained, the better. This is why residential treatment is considered to be the gold standard. Within that sector, there are options ranging from 30 or 90 day programs up to those that last for a year or more.

How To Pay For Treatment

The most common and popular way that people pay for treatment is by using some type of health insurance. If you can afford it, this might mean your private health insurance. Others might have group health insurance through work. Medicaid and Medicare are also options. Self-pay, tapping into community resources like grants, and crowdsourcing are also used to pay for treatment.
