  • In the first quarter of 2020, more than 70 residents of Queens died from an alcohol or drug overdose. Addiction destroys lives, but thankfully, there are many treatment options available to Queens residents struggling with substance use disorder. 

    How To Find & Choose Addiction Treatment In Queens

    If you’ve decided that you’re ready to begin the search for addiction treatment, it can be hard to know where to start. Utilizing the following options can be a great way to learn more about the treatment options available to you: 

    • contact a treatment center directly
    • call the New York State HOPELine 
    • call New York City’s hotline for drug and alcohol services
    • use the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s Behavioral Health Treatment Locator

    As you search for an accredited drug and alcohol rehab facility that’s a good fit for the start of your recovery, some factors can help you choose a treatment center: 

    • individualized treatment plans: the factors that led you to addiction are individual, and it’s vital to have a plan unique to your needs
    • evidence-based services: these treatment services have been proven effective for substance use disorder, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy
    • family involvement: if your family or other loved ones are an important part of your support network, you may want to include them in your recovery process
    • co-occurring disorders (dual diagnosis): many people who struggle with addiction also deal with another mental health disorder, and both conditions must be treated simultaneously
    • continuum of care: you may want to find a facility that allows you to work with the same treatment provider from start to finish of your treatment process

    Queens Drug & Alcohol Treatment Programs

    For many people, treatment begins with medical detox, is followed by inpatient or outpatient rehab, and may include medication-assisted treatment. After formal treatment is complete, it’s important to follow an aftercare plan to stay on track with your recovery. 

    Medical Drug & Alcohol Detoxification

    Some people shy away from getting the help they need for substance use disorder out of fear of the detox process. While detox can be uncomfortable, working with a medical treatment team can make the process as safe and simple as possible. 

    Your treatment team will work with you to help you prepare your mind and body for rehab during a short-term detox program

    Inpatient/Residential Treatment

    Inpatient or residential treatment offers the chance to fully focus on your recovery, away from the triggers and stressors that you encounter in day to day life. 

    You’ll get to experience different modalities of therapy, talk with your peers who are at a similar place in their recovery, and focus on wellness activities to improve your overall well-being.

    Outpatient Addiction Treatment

    For many people, inpatient treatment isn’t an option. Thankfully, outpatient treatment can be just as effective. 

    Also known as partial hospitalization programs/intensive outpatient programs, outpatient services allow you to attend to the responsibilities of work and home while traveling daily or weekly to a treatment facility. 

    Medication-Assisted Treatment 

    Medication-assisted treatment, or MAT, consists of a combination of behavioral therapy and medication(s) like buprenorphine, naltrexone, methadone, and/or Suboxone. MAT can help combat the temporary and permanent changes caused by opioid or alcohol addiction. 

    Aftercare Support

    Your treatment doesn’t end when you leave rehab. It’s important to work an aftercare program to help you stay sober long-term. Your aftercare program may consist of 12-step meetings, stress management techniques, individual/group therapy, and other tools for relapse prevention. 

    Using Insurance For Addiction Treatment In Queens

    New York State recently mandated new health insurance requirements in regards to addiction, making it easier for insured New Yorkers to get the treatment that they need. 

    If you have health insurance, your treatment of substance use disorder may be partially or fully covered, depending on your plan (which may include Medicaid or Medicare plans). 

    You can learn more about your health insurance by contacting a recovery center or your insurance provider.
