What Kind of Help Do I Need?
At first, all you may know is that there’s a problem. You may not know how to fix it or what steps you need to take. The good news is that there are a number of care options at your disposal, depending on your care needs. The type of treatment administered depends on patients’ addiction history and level of substance abuse. Some of the universal elements of treatment include:
Detox – Elimination of toxins that have built up in the body due to prolonged and untreated substance abuse. This phase of treatment should be handled by specialized professionals that can help mitigate withdraw symptoms and intervene in the event of a medical emergency.
Rehabilitation – Rehabilitation or “rehab” is the behavioral phase of treatment, and can be as diverse as the patients it serves. Some of the more traditional elements of rehab include group therapy and individual counseling. However, many offer supplemental therapies like yoga, meditation, and chiropractic care.
When Addiction Hits Home
Long Island and surrounding and its nearby communities are, by no means, insulated from the addiction problems plaguing the rest of the country:
- Suffolk County has more alcohol-related fatal car crashes than any county in New York
- Over 40 Long Island residents have died from Fentanyl overdose in the last 15 months
- Over 50 Nassau County residents died of heroin overdose in 2014
- Dozens more died from prescription opioids like oxycodone and hydrocodone
Addiction knows no stereotype. This is a problem that affects all cultural and economic groups, from impoverished minorities to affluent seniors. Despite the stranglehold that addiction has on Long Island, many residents are finding it hard to get the help they need.
