Treatment of Addiction is the First Step Toward Recovery

Treatment of addiction is a crucial need in the United States. You are not alone. Some 23.5 million Americans 12 or older needed treatment for illicit drug or alcohol abuse in 2009, according to the latest statistics from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA’s) National Survey on Drug Use and Health. That’s almost 10 percent of the population 12 and older. The same survey found that only 11.2 percent of those who needed treatment of addiction received it at a special facility. New York Rehab Centers can help you from being part of the statistics.

Treatment of Methamphetamine Addiction May Require Combined Approach

Although abuse of methamphetamine has been on a decline in recent years, the powerfully addictive drug remains a scourge in our society. Treatment of methamphetamine addiction may combine behavioral therapy, family education, one-on-one counseling, a 12-step program, drug testing and promoting nondrug-related activities. We can help you overcome this destructive drug and help you to get your life back on track.

Treatment of Cocaine Addiction Must Be Tailored to Individual Needs

Treatment of addiction can vary according to the patient’s drug of choice. There are no medications approved by the Food and Drug Administration for treatment of cocaine addiction, however development of such a medication is a high research priority at the National Institute on Drug Abuse. Meanwhile, treatment facilities like ours rely on behavioral interventions for decreasing cocaine use and preventing relapse. This usually involves combining treatment with social supports and other services. New York Rehab Centers employs an intense behavioral therapy program as the most effective way to overcome cocaine addiction in the long term.

What if You are Seeking Treatment of Opiate Addiction?

Opiates are a large classification of drugs that range from heroin and morphine to prescription painkillers such as OxyContin and Lortab. Use over long periods can lead to tolerance, dependence and, of course, addiction. New York Rehab Centers offer a safe place to detox, which is the first step in treatment of opiate addiction. Severe withdrawal symptoms may require medical supervision. Following detox, we offer other therapies for treatment of addiction that may involve addressing other medical or psychological issues, and ultimately will lead to freedom from opiates.
