Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

According to the New York Times, drug overdoses are now the leading cause of death among Americans under 50. This same report showed that in 2016, there were nearly 60,000 deaths from drug overdoses. Drug or alcohol addiction is a significant problem in America. In our high-pressure society, more and more people are coping with the stresses of daily living by using drugs or alcohol. While those who are not prone to addiction can usually handle the occasional glass of wine, for those who are genetically predisposed to substance use disorder the casual glass of wine can quickly become a nightmarish addiction.

The decision to seek treatment for drug or alcohol addiction begins with admitting to yourself that you have a problem. In 12-step groups, the first step is admitting that your life has become unmanageable due to your addiction. There is no shame in taking this step. There is a stigma associated with addiction in this country that makes it difficult for people to ask for help sometimes, but everyone needs help with something. If you are suffering from substance use disorder, you deserve to find effective treatment.

Finding Help & Recovery in Bayside, NY

Alcohol & Drug Rehab Centers in Bayside, New York

For those who are truly ready to seek addiction treatment in Bayside, New York, there are numerous choices. There are many benefits associated with attending a treatment program at a rehabilitation facility. Getting the help from healthcare professionals and addiction specialists may be the thing that you need. It can also be beneficial to be among a community of people who know what you are going through. There are different levels of treatment in a rehabilitation facility. You want to learn as much as you can about the treatment programs that are available.

Residential Treatment Programs

The residential treatment program may be the best fit for the patient who has a serious drug or alcohol addiction. In this program, patients stay in the facility and have access to medical care 24 hours a day.

Partial Hospitalization Programs

In a partial hospitalization program (PHP), the patient still has access to medical supervision and the rehabilitation curriculum, but he or she does not stay at the facility. This program is a good fit for patients who have already completed inpatient treatment or patients who have a less serious addiction to drugs and/or alcohol.

Outpatient Treatment Programs

The outpatient treatment program may be the best option for the patient with a more moderate addiction or the patient who has already been through detox, inpatient treatment and/or partial hospitalization. The patient does not stay at the facility.

Detox Centers

When you are addicted to a substance like benzodiazepines, alcohol or opioids, there will be a painful withdrawal process. The benefit of a detox center is that they will guide you through this process and offer medical assistance so that withdrawal symptoms will not be as bad. Trying to come off a dangerous substance on your own can have disastrous consequences.

In Bayside, New York, there are several choices for detox centers. However, you may want to consider visiting a national treatment center where you will be able to detox and enter into a treatment program. Most detox centers do not have inpatient or outpatient treatment, which is what you may need to begin your recovery journey.

Differing from 12 steps, they use a 4-point system: building motivation, coping with urges, living a balanced life and managing thoughts and behaviors. Where 12-step groups ask members to surrender their addictions to a higher power, SMART Recovery focuses more on self-empowerment and self-reliance. Some addiction specialists believe SMART Recovery is more scientific and 12-step programs are more religious.
