Finding Help & Recovery in Brooklyn, NY

Alcohol & Drug Rehab Centers in Brooklyn, New York

Brooklyn residents who struggle with a cocaineheroin or prescription drug addiction have a number of options available to them when it comes to recovery treatment programs. These options include detox, inpatient treatment, outpatient treatment or a combination of these. It is essential to understand the different treatment programs.

Residential Treatment Programs

Residential treatment is a kind of treatment that is provided to those who are battling a serious or long-term drug and/or alcohol addiction. Residential treatment is right for those who are likely to relapse or for those who have a serious opioid dependency. In residential or inpatient treatment, a recovering individual will stay at the facility until rehab is finished and will receive a full range of psychological, mental and supportive care. Recovery in an inpatient treatment program can last weeks, months or even over a year and is determined on an individual basis.

Partial Hospitalization Programs

In a PHP, patients will stay at the facility during the day and participate in the same healing activities that residential patients participate in. However, they are permitted to go home or to on-campus housing at night.

Outpatient Treatment Programs
Outpatient treatment is best for those with a drug and/or alcohol addiction that is less severe, and it is less intensive than residential treatment. In outpatient treatment, the patient will travel to the site for around 15 hours every week, which allows flexibility for family obligations, work or school. The length of an outpatient program can vary greatly.

Choosing the treatment program that is right for you can be difficult. Many people consider national treatment facilities because all of the treatment programs are available.

Detox Centers

Detox is the first step on your road to recovery. Detox typically lasts from 1 to 2 weeks. In many cases, if detox is disrupted and relapse does occur, the recovery process will stall and recovery must begin again. Detox can be dangerous if attempted without medical supervision.

You should remember, though, that detox is only the first step in a long process. It is crucial that you find a rehabilitation center that has both detox and treatment programs so that you can begin the real work of recovery after you detox.
