Help Me Find a Drug Rehab Center

What kind of rehabs are available in New York City?

There may not be a simple cure for alcohol or drug addiction, but medical professionals are sure of one thing: there's no such thing as an one-size-fits-all drug rehabilitation center that works for every person. New York City has several various types of rehab programs, each directed toward different kinds of patients. The most preferred types of rehabs offered in New York City are inpatient and outpatient programs, traditional treatments, holistic drug rehabs, and religious treatments of addiction. Each different kind of rehabilitation provides a variety of advantages to different kinds of patients.

Inpatient Drug Rehab

New York City's inpatient rehab programs can be regarded as a gold standard of drug rehab. These programs are the most thorough type of rehab center available and they can address the issues encompassing detox and withdrawal, as well as any mental and emotional issues such as anxiety and depression that typically occur with addiction.

Inpatient rehab is especially effective for individuals who've been struggling with long term addiction, although even shorter-term addicts may find that a 30 day stay is enough to fully address the problem and get a new start.

Outpatient Rehab

Outpatient rehab services make it possible for the person to continue going to school or to work, but due to the fact the program is done on an outpatient basis it's easier for the patient to relapse. Detox services as well as assistance with psychological and medical problems have to be separately addressed with an outpatient rehab program.

Outpatient treatment centers are therefore suggested more for individuals who have short-term addictions as well as for people who have already finished an inpatient rehabilitation program and just need support for their recovery.

Traditional Drug Rehab Treatments

Traditional treatments are usually based on the 12 step programs and traditions. Given that 12 step meetings are free, universal, and based in the community, many patients feel that beginning their recovery process with one of these programs can be beneficial. Different traditional treatment programs have different ideas. Some focus on just the 12-step approach, while others integrate different elements of therapy. Patients benefit most from these programs when they attend meetings on a daily basis.

Holistic Drug Rehab

Holistic treatment programs are most commonly inpatient programs that involve the whole spectrum of treatment approaches, from 12-step ideology, psychological treatment, cognitive behavioral therapy, medical care, to alternative therapy like acupuncture and yoga. These programs tend to concentrate on whole body health and good nutrition as well as approaches of improving psychological and emotional health. These programs have been proven to be extremely effective in the long term.

Religious Drug Rehab Programs

Religious drug rehab programs integrate a heavy emphasis on religiously-oriented spiritual health and healing, as well as the medical and therapeutic options of holistic and traditional drug rehab programs. They're particularly effective with patients who were raised to have faith in a particular religion and feel that going back to their religious roots would help with treating their addiction. New York City is home to various religiously oriented drug rehab programs. Most Christian drug rehabs tend to focus on the 12 step method due to its belief in a "higher power".
