Don’t spend another second suffering from alcoholism. We’re ready to help you fight back.
Most Americans drink, or will at some point in their lives. Alcohol’s popularity and mass consumption often blurs the lines between what is acceptable and problematic drinking. Over time, however, drinking problems become clearer and clearer as alcoholics start to neglect their families, suffer serious physical and psychological health complications and, in some cases, even go to jail for their drinking. Whether it’s yourself or someone you care about, identifying a drinking problem isn’t always easy; however, if the problem isn’t addressed early, it can destroy a person’s life, as well as the lives of those closest to them. Drinking can even kill a person if it goes on long enough without intervention.
Some of the more common signs of an alcohol problem include:
If you or someone you care about is exhibiting this or other troubling behavioral signs related to their drinking, it’s imperative that they got quality treatment right away. There are a variety of Long Island alcohol rehab centers that can help. These programs offer group and individual counseling so patients can work through the behavioral aspects of their alcohol abuse and gain insight regarding the root causes of their drinking. They can also help patients reconnect with their families and offer logistical assistance to make the transition in recovery easier.
Alcoholism is a disease, the same as heart disease, diabetes or high blood pressure. Recent changes to insurance legislation have started to recognize this and mandate that providers cover addiction treatment. Most Long Island alcohol rehab centers will work with insurance companies to keep treatment costs down for patients so they can get the help they need without letting their finances dictate their recovery. Long Island Addiction Resources is prepared to walk you through the insurance verification process and answer any questions you may have.
First Step – Before patients can begin rehab, they must undergo alcohol detox to eliminate the toxins that have built up in their bodies through prolonged and untreated alcohol abuse. Once patients are medically stabilized, and have the energy to move on to the next stage of treatment, they can begin the rehab process.
Second Step – Long Island Addiction Resources will work with you or your loved one to determine what sort of rehab is needed, whether it’s inpatient, outpatient or somewhere in between. Each patient’s rehab needs will be different and it’s important that they enter a program that offers customized care.
Third Step – Once we are able to find a program that suits your care needs and lifestyle, we will arrange prompt entry so you can begin your treatment. We are committed to helping our callers feel safe and comfortable about their rehab choice and will answer any questions you or your loved one may have prior to facilitating the treatment process.
Quality rehab can help you overcome alcohol abuse and address the fallout of your addiction. Many programs offer specialized assistance with legal matters, job training and career re-entry assistance for certain types of professionals. The first step to a better life, however, is overcoming alcohol. You can do this. Call Long Island Addiction Resources today at (855) 213-4447 to start the rest of your life.

|“I thought I would just drink forever. I didn’t think I would get help or that I was even worth saving. My brother called Long Island Addiction Resources on my behalf and begged me to get treatment. I listened to him and it was the best decision I’ve ever made.”||“My family never talked about alcohol addiction, even though four of us were alcoholics. I never even realized I had a problem until I was in my mid-twenties. When I called Long Island Addiction Resources, I had no idea what to expect. I was in treatment the next day and I haven’t looked back.”||“My son’s drinking was getting worse, but he was 30 years old so I didn’t think there was anything I could do. After talking to him about my concerns, he agreed that he had a problem. We called Long Island Addiction Resources together and got him into rehab. I thank god every day that I made that call.”|
