Addiction Treatment In Buffalo, NY
In Buffalo, you have access to outpatient treatment, medication-assisted treatment (MAT), and long-term residential treatment. Consider other forms of rehab elsewhere in Erie County.
You can also find additional treatment resources elsewhere in New York or in other neighboring states. As you look for alcohol or drug rehab programs, consider what will work best for your needs and situation.
Alcohol And Drug Detox Programs
Detox programs help you to cope with the painful, uncomfortable, and sometimes dangerous symptoms of withdrawal from drugs and alcohol.
Detox programs often last three to four days, but can last up to a week or more. Detox programs may include medical supervision as well as medications to help alleviate symptoms. While not treatment for addiction, these programs help prepare you for more comprehensive care.
Inpatient Addiction Treatment
Inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab programs provide you with a safe and supportive environment 24-hours a day. Inpatient treatment includes evidence-based therapies and a community of support where you can build a strong recovery.

Inpatient treatment programs take place in beautiful and peaceful environments. You can also find programs that offer experiences to help build sober-living skills like wilderness therapy, equine therapy, and music and art therapy.
Outpatient drug and alcohol treatment takes place in a community-based setting. You can stay at home and potentially continue to work while attending outpatient treatment. Most outpatient programs last between 10 and 12 weeks. You should look for an outpatient program that includes evidence-based practices and peer support.
Used for a number of years to help treat people with alcohol and opioid use disorders, medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is evidence-based and research-driven.
MAT medications are FDA-approved prescriptions that are combined with therapy. As the medications limit cravings and withdrawal, you can better focus on changing your behaviors and thought patterns. Some MAT programs can last six months to a year and longer.
Aftercare And Alumni Services
Aftercare services continue treatment and support after you finish a formal rehab program. Recovery is a lifelong process and aftercare/alumni services help you maintain sobriety. These services can combine peer groups with evidence-based group and individual therapy, and may also include 12-step programming.
Length Of Addiction Treatment
The National Institute for Drug Abuse (NIDA) advises you seek an individualized treatment plan that responds to your history of treatment as well as your health needs.
This may determine length, which may include:
- 30-day treatment programs
- 60-day treatment programs
- 90-day treatment programs
- 120-day treatment programs
How To Pay For Treatment
New York drug and alcohol rehab programs nearly all accept the majority of private health insurance programs. You can also receive drug and alcohol rehab services through New York Medicaid if you’re eligible.
Even with insurance coverage, you’ll still owe some fees out of pocket. If these costs are too much, many rehab programs offer payment plans and sliding-fee scales.
