User Reviews: Staff is able to relate on a very personal level with client needs and experience. Staff is very passionate about clients receiving the needed information and wanting clients to get well and stay well. Older premises in need of renovation. A real gym/fitness area is sorely needed as well as a participatory music program and a library. Also, there should be a central, neutral area where men and women may talk especially to discuss the impact of some of the lessons. It is not a natural situation to be a bi-gender facility with NO communication. Staff observation and redirection as required may be appropriate. I feel that everyone was treated with respect even though some of the clients did "push the ticket ". Again, I feel that the staff, professional or other express a personal interest in clients welfare and health. I have difficulty imagining anyone getting more personal treatment, anywhere.

All thanks to the guidance and services at this rehab organization. The facility is an overall family atmosphere. It’s a great facility with a peaceful atmosphere and great staff.

Treatment Info

NY Substance Abuse Facts

Substance abuse issues are quite prevalent in New York. Both drug and alcohol abuse and dependence have had devastating consequences for many state residents. Consider that in New York:

  • An average of about 1 million people suffer from an alcohol use disorder each year
  • In a single year, 87,000 people over 12 years old reported using heroin, making the state’s average percentage higher than the national average.
  • The number of people over 12 who used cocaine in the same year reached 425,000, almost half a million people.

Unfortunately, occasional drug use can very quickly lead to addiction, and overdose is a constant risk. In 2015, there were 2,754 drug overdose deaths in New York, an increase of about 400 deaths from 2014.

With the rates of use and overdose deaths so high in the state, it’s no wonder that various New York cities are taking the initiative to combat the epidemic. The city of New York has invested $38 million a year to reduce the number of deaths from opioid overdoses. Part of the initiative includes increasing the availability of naloxone—an opioid overdose reversal medication—in pharmacies (including without a prescription) and providing naloxone kits to NYPD officers and homeless shelters.However, while naloxone may reverse the effects of an overdose, the best way to protect yourself if you’re dependent on and/or addicted to drugs is to get professional treatment.

Getting Addiction Treatment Help

If it’s your first time getting treatment at a rehab center, you may not know where to start. Rest assured, there are plenty of treatment support specialists that can help you choose a facility and guide you through the entire process.

Call us to learn more about the treatment options available to you and to ask any questions you may have about rehab and the process of enrolling in a program.

Where Else Can I Find Help?

Depending on your particular circumstance, a treatment advisor may suggest a longer stay at the facility (e.g., 90 days) to give you the best chance of recovery. Don’t let the fear of being away from your normal life deter you from getting treatment. Rehab professionals want what’s best for you and will take your individual situation into account when giving recommendations.

If it’s the cost of rehab that is delaying you from receiving treatment, know that there are options out there that may help:

  • Insurance: Some rehab centers may accept Medicaid, Medicare, or private health insurance.
  • Payment plans and sliding-scale fees: Individual facilities may offer options to either reduce the burden of paying or all at once or even reduce the total cost according to your ability to pay.
  • Health care credit cards: Some companies provide credit cards specifically to cover health care costs. This may be an option for you if you think you’ll be able to pay off the credit card quickly after treatment.

Crowdfunding: You may be surprised just how many people are willing to help you on the road to sobriety. Setting up a crowdfunding account allows you to ask your friends and family (and even strangers) to support you in getting the care you need.
