Latest Reviews Of Rehab Centers In New York NY

Fast admission Dont know really As of now my brother is at Catholic Family Center CR Jones Avenue, and he is there since 2 weeks. I am glad that he is through the hardest part. He said that the detox was fine, he got loads of help and it went as smooth as it was possible to go. The medical staff are very competent he said, and that the nurses are there helping out whenever he needs. We called the center like 3 weeks ago, cause we wanted to find a center where he can get real help. The person who got on the phone with us was very helpful. We talked a couple of times, before we (me and my mom and brother) decided which center to choose. After they did all the paper work very quickly. The papers with the insurance vent very fast. They did the intake very quickly. We were all very pleased with the administration that at least this did not pose a problem. The place itself is nice, very clean and orderly. My brother told us he is in a room with one room mate and that they get along very well. He said that the care takes and counselors are all very nice. All the other staff members are nice to him, and he likes the program. He said that it is since about a week he start on the 12 steps, but they gave him 2-3 options, he wanted to do the 12 steps. He said it is going well, and now he for some friends, who show him around and help him out.

The awesome facility that truly cares about the client and their future. Aftercare and alumni program is top notch. The staff takes the time and effort to focus on the individual.

Great program, amazing people. Therapy based on individuals needs. The programs there are great and really helpful but it’s the staff that makes all the difference. An absolutely awesome place to stay for recovery as long as you want recovery. The facility is very welcoming, upscale and serene. Phoenix House - East Hampton Outpatient save my Life!

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.
