Drug and Alcohol Rehab Programs Near You

There are several types of drug and alcohol rehab programs in your area. No one program works for all individuals.

Treatment programs need to consider an individual’s unique situation and can involve a combination of therapies, pharmaceutical treatments, and other strategies to address the deficits the person is facing.

Inpatient treatments, also commonly known as residential treatments can be either short-term or long-term. Long-term residential treatment might involve 6-12 months of intensive care while a short-term treatment might only last for 3-6 weeks.

If a less intensive program is warranted, outpatient programs are also effective. These can still be intensive, with the client spending most of their day at the program.

Types of Counseling Available in Your Area

While in recovery, there are several types of counseling and therapy that are available. It is important to note that this is just one component of the recovery process.

Group counseling is very common and provides patients to connect with other individuals in a supported environment. This type of social reinforcement can be especially helpful for encouraging a drug-free lifestyle and seeing meaningful peer-to-peer interactions.

Individual therapy is another form of counseling, often used in conjunction with group therapy. This type will allow for more specific discussion relating to areas in an individual’s life that need improvement. For example, discussions can involve social relationships, employment issues, or illegal activity.

Family therapy can be utilized as an effective tool if other family members are willing to participate. Family members can help to support the client in their healing journey and play an active role in the process.

Therapy can evolve over time, either adding or removing components from an individual’s treatment plan based on progress. There are professionals available to help guide you every step of the way.

How Many Alcohol and Drug Rehabs are Near Me

When seeking help, there are many facilities to choose from in the Buffalo, NY area. While searching for the best treatment centers near you, you will need to distinguish between inpatient treatment services, hospital-based programs, and outpatient services.

There are 15 hospitals near you that provide inpatient treatment. There are an additional 59 facilities that offer residential drug and alcohol rehab programs.

Outpatient treatment centers are the most common with over 100 locations near Buffalo, NY.

What to Expect During the Detox Process

Although most treatment programs vary depending on the person and evolve, the first step in the journey is likely detoxification.

This is where the individual will experience symptoms of withdrawal. This process can be dangerous and potentially fatal if not done properly so it is best achieved under the supervision of medical professionals.

This is known as a medically managed detoxification process.

Certain classes of drugs like opioids, alcohol, nicotine, barbiturates, and other sedatives have pharmaceutical treatments available to help counteract withdrawal symptoms. Symptoms might include fever, seizures, hallucinations, and high blood pressure among others. It is best to be under the care of professionals who have experience in the process.

Detoxification is the physiological process by which the body rids itself of the drugs.

It is important to note that though the detoxification step is first and expels the drugs, the underlying issues that led to the addiction remain.

What to Expect After Treatments

After you or your loved one completes a program, there is still work to be done. Though it may seem the worst is behind you, recovery is an ongoing process that continues, often for life.

If you are participating in an inpatient program, you may first transition to an outpatient program. After completing an outpatient program, it is recommended that you participate in a support group of some kind to maintain your sobriety. These groups can be organized through local community centers or even places of worship.

Addiction can often creep back into a person’s life under triggering circumstances. These may include a high-stress event, being around individuals associated with the addiction, or visiting places that may remind you of your past habits.

It is a good idea to avoid these people and places if possible, but having a support group can help you navigate situations as they arise.

At Peace Valley Recovery, we will start you on the journey that will be the beginning of a new path forward in life.

What Does Treatment Cost?

The good news is that if you have insurance, most plans offer benefits that cover substance abuse treatment.

Contact your insurance provider to discuss any deductibles or copays that you will be responsible for. You will also want to discuss if your insurer has a list of preferred facilities. The preferred facilities will often mean significantly less out-of-pocket expenses for you.

If you do not have insurance, that is okay. Some programs offer low-cost or no-cost treatment, based on income.

If you do not qualify based on income, many are willing to set up payment plans based on what you can afford.

Scholarships or grants may be available through the facilities as well.

It may be favorable to try to enroll in an insurance plan if you will be able to use the benefits within a few weeks. Contact your state agency for more information on what is available. You can also check to see if you qualify for Medicaid.

This may be difficult for someone who is in need of treatment to navigate on their own. It is a good idea to recruit a trusted friend or family member to help assist you.

The facilities may have someone on staff that can assist in this also.
