Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

In our country, we are plagued with the destressing reality of substance abuse. Currently, more people are dying from drug overdoses than from car accidents or gun violence. Addiction is our country’s greatest health epidemic.

The problem of substance misuse and drug overdoses has become so significant that in March of 2017, Mayor Bill de Blasio of New York City vowed to reduce the number of drug-related deaths by 35 percent over five years. This is promising, but many residents in Jamaica, New York are still suffering.

Because of the negative attitude many people have towards those who are addicted to harmful substances, it is difficult for some to get the treatment they deserve. However, if you are willing to look, there are many resources available.

Finding Help & Recovery in Jamaica, NY

Alcohol & Drug Rehab Centers in Jamaica, New York

New York has numerous resources for those who suffer from substance use disorder. Once you have made the decision to seek treatment, it can be easy to get overwhelmed looking at the different treatment programs. The best treatment program for you will largely depend on the details of your situation like the particular substance you are addicted to, your history with addiction, etc. You will most likely need one of the following treatment programs:

Residential Treatment Programs

Medical professionals will supervise you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in the residential or inpatient treatment programs. Patients who are in need of detox will usually enter into a residential program after, particularly if they are addicted to substances like opiates, alcohol or benzodiazepines.

Partial Hospitalization Programs

One step down from inpatient treatment, the partial hospitalization program usually lasts 6 to 8 hours during the day, and patients are allowed to go home at night, provided that they have a stable, supportive and drug-free environment in which they can live.

Outpatient Treatment Programs

One step down from partial hospitalization programs, outpatient treatment programs are similar to PHPs but with more flexibility. Patients in outpatient treatment programs do not spend as much time at the facility each week.

While there are many options for rehabilitation centers in Jamaica, New York, it may be wise to consider a national treatment center. Man rehab facilities are staffed with experienced addiction specialists who are committed to starting you down the path to long-term recovery.

Detox Centers

Detoxification is the first step in treating your substance use disorder. It is incredibly beneficial to have medical supervision in the detox process. If you attempt to come off a substance like opiates or benzodiazepines by yourself, you may want to use again when symptoms of withdrawal get really bad. Your withdrawal symptoms will be treated medically in a detox center, which is the reason most people utilize them.

While a detox center will get you sober, it will do nothing to solve the underlying problems that fed your drug and/or alcohol addiction in the first place. For this, you must participate in a treatment program. An advantage of a national treatment center is that medically supervised detox is available as well as treatment programs.
