Inpatient Addiction Treatment

Residential or inpatient drug and alcohol treatment allows you to focus on your recovery and health in a drug- and alcohol-free environment. Residential programs may provide specialized focuses like gender-specific care or services for pregnant women, trauma survivors, and opioid use disorders.

Inpatient or residential treatment programs also provide evidence-based counseling like dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). They should also offer experiences that will help you to establish strong sober living skills, including peer group support and motivational interviewing.

Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient programs meet in community settings. You’ll live at home or in a sober-living home while attending outpatient treatment. Most outpatient programs last for 10 to 12 weeks, and usually meet three times a week. Programs that meet more frequently for longer hours are called intensive outpatient programs (IOPs).

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) programs combine medications like methadone, naltrexone, and buprenorphine with evidence-based counseling and peer group support.

Most MAT programs are outpatient programs. They can assist people to recover from opioid use disorders, as well as alcohol. MAT programs may also be available within a residential treatment.

Aftercare And Alumni Services

You can continue to receive support to maintain sobriety after you complete rehab. Alumni and aftercare program can combine group or individual counseling with peer group support.

Alumni and aftercare programs are an important component of substance use disorder treatment and recovery. More than staying in touch with others from rehab, alumni programs can offer the help you need to cope with setbacks and avoid or lessen the impact of relapse.

Length Of Addiction Treatment

Substance use disorder treatment should be holistic and it should also take your individual substance use, treatment history, health, and social/emotional well-being into consideration. Some common program lengths include:

  • 30 days
  • 60 days
  • 90 days
  • 120 days

According to research conducted by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), the sooner you start treatment, the better your chances of building a lasting recovery.

How To Pay For Treatment

Nearly all residential treatment programs in New York are able to accept major private health insurance. Mandates at the state and federal level require private insurance plans to provide coverage for substance use disorder treatment.

If you’re eligible for Medicaid, New York Medicaid also covers the majority of substance use disorder treatment programs.
