Drug Treatment Centers Albany NY

Drug treatment centers offer a recovering addict the best possible chance at overcoming an addiction to drugs or alcohol. However, many people suffering from drug or alcohol addictions do not seek out the assistance of drug treatment centers as early on as they could. This is often because they either do not known of the drug treatment centers in their area or do not understand the benefits that drug treatment can offer.

If you or a loved one need access to addiction treatment, call Albany Drug Rehab at (518) 626-8504.

What Is Drug Treatment?

Drug treatment available in drug treatment centers is a set of therapies, coping strategies and mechanisms, relapse prevention techniques, and the like all combined together to help a person with an alcohol or drug addiction overcome and recover from that addiction. Drug treatment involves specific programs that are highly structured and deliberately sequenced to help a recovering addict deal with addiction and avoid future substance abuse.

Who Needs Drug Treatment?

Any person who feels like his or her use of a drug or alcohol has gotten out of control should seek out drug treatment for assistance. Additionally, if a person uses a drug or alcohol frequently but stops using the substance even for a short period of time and as a result experiences withdrawal, he or she needs drug treatment as well.

What Are The Signs Someone Needs To Seek Drug Treatment?

If a person has developed a substance abuse problem or an addiction, certain signs or symptoms will arise, indicating that drug treatment is needed. These signs may be physical, mental (and social) or related to physical health:

    What Are Some Drug Treatment Options?

     
    Outpatient

    Outpatient drug treatment is often thought to be the most convenient and therefore is quite possibly the most common form of addiction treatment. In this type of treatment, the person recovering from a drug or alcohol addiction stays at home with their family and engaged in their regular daily life. They will attend treatment sessions a few times a week (generally two to three but sometimes more or even less than that).

    Inpatient

    Inpatient treatment occurs in a hospital or mental health facility. It is a short-term, temporary form of addiction treatment that is generally only used when a person has a physical or mental condition that makes the detox process dangerous for that person or for others around them. Once this danger has been resolved or overcome, the recovering addict transfers to an outpatient or residential treatment program to complete their addiction treatment.

    Residential

    Residential treatment is one of the most commonly recognized forms of addiction treatment and is often referred to as rehab. During residential treatment, a recovering addict stays in a treatment center fulltime for the full duration of their treatment program (usually a few weeks or a month or so). When in residential treatment, a recovering addict will be able to put their full attention into their treatment as well as avoid even the possibility of relapse. This can help to ensure a person successfully completes their drug treatment.
