Flushing Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

Each year, the United States faces more and more of its citizens succumbing to the problem of substance abuse. Over 50,000 Americans died from drug overdoses in 2015. The disease of addiction can do a lot of damage in the lives of individuals and families.

The state of New York is no exception to this. In January 2017, in Flushing, 15 local men and 1 local woman were arrested in a massive drug bust. Officers seized cocaine, drug paraphernalia, over $24,000 and 18 gambling devices.

While it may seem hopeless to those who suffer from drug and/or alcohol addiction, we know that addiction is a disease like any other that needs to be treated. Having a substance use disorder does not make you a bad person. It just means that you need to ask for help.

Anyone looking for alcohol and drug treatment facilities in Flushing, New York has a number of resources available to them.

Finding Help in Flushing

Flushing Drug Rehab Centers and Alcohol Rehab Centers

When you are researching your options on rehabilitation facilities, you will have multiple choices. Your first step is to determine the best treatment program for you. Selecting a treatment program that is effective is critical. Your history with addiction, your living situation and your current financial situation will all contribute to the best treatment program for you. You will typically have three treatment programs available.

  • Connector.

    Residential Treatment Programs

    In an inpatient or residential treatment program, patients have 24/7 medical supervision from healthcare professionals. They live at the facility, and they receive intensive rehabilitation treatment that includes group and individual therapy, substance misuse classes, healing activities and recreational activities.

  • Connector.

    Partial Hospitalization Programs

    In a PHP, patients participate in the same sorts of activities as residential patients – like healing and recreational activities, classes and therapy – but they are permitted to go home at night. For this reason, PHPs are often called “dayhab” programs. Patients in these programs have access to medical care as needed.

  • Connector.

    Outpatient Treatment Programs

    Patients in an outpatient treatment program will participate in classes, therapy and healing activities just as residential and PHP patients do, but they spend less time at the facility each week, and they live at home or in housing that is provided on campus. They have access to medical care as needed.

In a national network of rehabilitation facilities like The Recovery Village, there are addiction specialists on staff who will assess your situation and help you to formulate the most effective plan for you.

Detox Centers

Flushing, New York has options available if you need a detox center. You may be in more of a need for a medically supervised detoxification if you are dependent on a benzodiazepine like Xanax or an opiate like oxycodone. Most treatment programs want you to be finished with any necessary detox before beginning. It’s important to have medical supervision throughout this difficult process.

While detox is definitely essential, it’s only the initial phase of rehabilitation. A detox center only treats the physical aspects of your substance use disorder. The real work starts with the spiritual, mental and emotional aspects. Facilities like The Recovery Village are an obvious choice for many patients as you have access to medically supervised detoxification as well as inpatient and outpatient treatment programs.

Recovery Meetings Near You

One of the most important aspects to maintaining your sobriety is finding a recovery meeting that works for you. Groups like SMART Recovery, Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous are effective for millions of people. There are many options for meetings in Flushing.

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) Meetings

Alcoholics Anonymous was founded in 1935 by Dr. Bob Smith and Bill Wilson in Akron, Ohio. It grew to be the most trusted recovery group on the planet with over 100,000 groups holding regular meetings in approximately 170 countries. AA is a fellowship of women and men who support each other and help each other stay sober one day at a time by gathering for supportive, honest and open meetings. Here are the options for meetings in the Flushing area.

Narcotics Anonymous (NA) Meetings

Also a 12-step program, Narcotics Anonymous was started in 1953. People who are addicted to other substances are welcome to NA meetings. Where people who are addicted to drugs like heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine may feel out of place at an AA meeting, NA offers them an open and supportive environment. Like AA members, NA members are encouraged to use the 12 steps although only the desire to stop using drugs is required to become a member. Here are the NA meetings in Flushing.

SMART Recovery offers a different approach than the 12-step approach of NA or AA. Standing for Self-Management for Addiction Recovery Training, SMART Recovery focuses on self-empowerment and self-reliance with a 4-point system. SMART Recovery is the largest alternative to 12-step groups, and they offer many online meetings and face-to-face meetings. Here are the meetings that are closest to Flushing.

Al-Anon and Nar-Anon Meetings
