Alcohol And Drug Detox Programs

Over time, drug and alcohol use leads to physical dependency. When you stop using the substance you’re dependent upon, you can experience physical withdrawal symptoms.
Withdrawal symptoms can include flu-like illness and physical and emotional pain.

Detox is designed to help you safely cope with withdrawal and prepare your body to begin rehab. Detox should include medical supervision and may also use medication in some instances.

Inpatient Addiction Treatment

Inpatient treatment may use a medical model or it may focus more on providing a therapeutic environment where you can focus completely on your recovery.

Residential rehab programs include evidence-based group and individual psychotherapy. You can also engage in peer group activities and experiences that help you develop healthy coping mechanisms.

You can find gender-specific residential drug and alcohol treatment programs, as well as programs designed for opioid use disorders, polydrug use disorders, and dual diagnoses.

Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient treatment programs use evidence-based therapy along with peer group support and activities that promote sober-living skills.

Most outpatient programs meet three days a week, although you can find programs that meet more or less frequently. Outpatient treatment is an appropriate choice if you live in a drug- and alcohol-free environment and have a lot of support at home or in the community.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is effective in helping people to recover from opioid, alcohol, and tobacco use disorders.

MAT combines individual and group therapy with FDA-approved medications. New York provides funding for MAT, including buprenorphine, naltrexone, and methadone, along with counseling and peer group support.

Aftercare And Alumni Services

You can receive ongoing services after you finish an alcohol or drug rehab program. Whether you’re most comfortable with group or individual counseling, aftercare and alumni programs can help you stay sober and cope with life’s ups and downs without relapse.

More than relapse prevention, good aftercare programs can help you to continue to heal and grow as a person through psychotherapy and sober relationships.

Length Of Addiction Treatment

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) recommends that drug and alcohol treatment should always be designed to meet individual health and substance use needs. Many rehab programs fit into these common program lengths:

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

How To Pay For Treatment

Nearly all rehab programs in New York accept payments from major private health insurers. Many rehab programs offer payment plans, scholarships, and discounts for private pay patients.

If you’re eligible for Medicaid in New York, you should apply because it also pays for drug and alcohol treatment. If you need help to pay for treatment, you can also look into crowdfunding sites or ask for help from friends and family.
