Making a decision to seek treatment is a huge step for an addict or alcoholic to deal with their disease. Many treatment centers offer specialized and individual based therapy as well as help in group settings. There are different requirements for completion in each of the different treatment programs available. So it is best to talk to an addiction professional to determine what program is right for you. Most treatment centers will work with insurance providers.

Alcoholism and drug addiction is destroying the fabric of our society. In Oyster Bay, young people are turning to drugs and alcohol as a means to cope with the stress of life. Most people start using to have a good time, party with their friends, to fit in among their peers, to escape from reality for a little while, or just because it feels good. The majority of younger people will grow out of this move on with life, get a good career and start a family of their own. They will look back at their use as just a phase they went through when they were young.
However, addicts have a totally different view on the importance of drugs and alcohol in their lives. Even though most addicts start out using the same way as non addicts. Addicts view using as a solution to their problems. There are varying degrees of addiction as well. Some addicts do very well for themselves. They gain successful careers, build families, sometimes even fame and notoriety. However, since the disease of addiction is progressive their using eventually blots out everything. Drugs and alcohol become the most important aspect of their lives. And their world starts to come crashing down around them, as the disease progresses.
