Bayside 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 and/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 and/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.
Drug and alcohol addiction is a national problem. Over 52 million people aged 12 and older in the United States have reported misusing prescription medicine in their lifetimes. This epidemic seems to be hitting New York harder, however, as overdoses related to opioids rose faster in New York State than any other state in the U.S. in 2014.
The decision to seek treatment for drug and/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.
You’re not alone in this struggle.

Residential Treatment Programs
The residential treatment program is the best fit for the patient who has a serious drug and/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.

Outpatient Treatment Programs

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 like The Recovery Village where you will be able to detox and enter into a treatment program.
