Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

Over the past decade, the United States has been swept up in a nationwide opiate epidemic. The over prescription of pain pills, like oxycodone and hydrocodone, has led to a serious opiate problem in America. Every day, 91 people die from an opiate overdose in the United States. This is a significant issue. The citizens of New York, even in towns like Elmira, are not immune to this problem.

New York has seen vast numbers of overdose deaths related to heroin and other opiates in the past few years. New York’s heroin overdose death rate has been the same as, if not more than, the national rate each year since 2006.

Substance abuse is a serious issue that can lead to drastic consequences. However, if you are suffering from drug and/or alcohol addiction, do not despair. There is help available if you find the courage to stand up and ask for it.

Finding Help & Recovery in Elmira, NY

Alcohol & Drug Rehab Centers in Elmira, New York

When someone is dealing with the struggle of chemical dependency, whether it’s drugs, alcohol or both, knowing where to get the most effective treatment can be overwhelming. Just as no two people are exactly alike, no two people with substance use disorder will need the same type of treatment. There are different treatment programs to choose from. You are better equipped to select the best one when you have a comprehensive understanding of the different programs that are available.

Residential Treatment Programs

Residential (or inpatient) treatment programs are beneficial for people who require detox. Patients are provided with a place to live where they can escape their everyday environments. Residential treatment provides a safe and secure place with experienced addiction specialists and healthcare professionals on hand at all times.

Partial Hospitalization Programs

partial hospitalization program is one step down from a residential treatment program. Also called day treatment, patients in a PHP are on campus approximately seven to eight hours per day. This can be beneficial to patients as they will have group therapy and individual therapy.

Outpatient Treatment Programs

Outpatient treatment programs allow patients to seek treatment with minimal interruptions to their lives. Patients live at home and spend two or three hours during the week at the facility. This is a good fit for patients who have full-time jobs or who have school. A lot of patients in an outpatient program have already completed inpatient treatment.

Detox Centers

Detox is the first step someone needs to take when they are addicted to a harmful substance. Detox can be perilous and should not be tried alone. If you attempt to detox by yourself, you may be tempted to relapse when withdrawal symptoms become painful.

Detoxification from harmful substances can be difficult as the body adjusts to being without it. In a detox center, patients are given medical supervision throughout this difficult process. There are many options for detox centers in the Elmira area.

Going through detoxification is just a way to start a potentially long and challenging struggle to overcome drug and/or alcohol addiction. A facility that can take patients from detox through residential treatment to outpatient treatment and then aftercare is important for success.
