Get Help Now with Addiction Recovery
Addiction is a painful disease to live with, which makes addiction recovery a process. Currently, in America, there is an epidemic of people who are afflicted by a dependency on drugs and alcohol, but they are not alone. An addicted person’s loved ones are also sadly affected directly and indirectly by the repercussions of drug and/or alcohol abuse. The rehabilitation process, or rehab, helps people with addictions have a better understanding of their dependency. Addicted people also learn to identify and avoid triggers that lead them to their substance abuse. And most importantly, they learn to live a happy life as a recovering addict.
Alcohol or drug addiction rehabilitation treatment centers provide healthy compassionate atmospheres for addicted people who want to recover from drugs or alcohol. They develop individually designed treatment plans to fulfill the physical, medical, and psychological needs of their clients. They also focus on the social, vocational, and emotional aspects of their clients. Substance abuse is a large problem in New York. Over a million people in New York were deemed to have substance abuse disorder in 2018.
For some addicted people, intervention is the first step in recovery because it’s the first time a person with an addiction realizes that they have an issue with drugs or alcohol. In an intervention the addict’s friends, family members, loved ones, and counselors meet in an orchestrated attempt to confront and address the addict’s drug and/or alcohol addiction. They share their concerns with the addict, give their support, and explain to the addict how he/she has harmed themselves and others. Lastly and most importantly, the group encourages the addict to enter a treatment facility.
For an intervention to be effective, rehab centers recommend intensive well-organized interventions lead by a qualified interventionist. The meeting should be compassionate, yet confrontational with the individual in question. It is important to remember that an intervention is not a substitute for treatment. It isn’t going to stop the addict from using. It is only the first step. If followed immediately by rehabilitation, an intervention is a powerful tool in taking the first step on the road to recovery.
There is also a period of detox, which is typically required for addicts before they may be able to enter a rehab facility. Detox, or detoxification, is a medically supervised procedure that guides addicts through the most challenging phases of withdrawal. Depending on the type and level of addiction, certain medications may be needed. As needed, there is an IV for hydration and nutrition. For people that have a physical addiction to alcohol, opiates, and other serious substances, a professionally supervised detox is a crucial step in rehabilitation because physical withdrawals can be fatal. Many people assume going “cold turkey” is safe, but it can actually be very dangerous and even deadly when the body has a physical addiction to the drug. Detox centers exist for people from New York.

Addiction Recovery Is Achievable
Drug and alcohol addiction treatment centers offer rehabilitation for people at all stages of their addiction. Whether the addict has only started showing signs of a dependency or is a habitual abuser of drugs and alcohol, drug or alcohol rehab centers are prepared with professional care to carefully guide addicts through their healing process. Their rehab programs include, but aren’t limited to, treatment for alcohol, opiates (heroin, codeine), prescription drugs (pharmaceuticals, hydrocodone, oxycodone), designer drugs (bath salts, stimulants), crystal meth, cocaine, hallucinogens, and marijuana. Drug rehab provides the most powerful and effective treatment because they assess the roots of the addiction. Then taking into consideration any contributing mental components (like co-occurring disorders), they then strategically create an optimum path to recovery for each individual client.
