Some rehab programs specialize in treating mental and behavioral health disorders, including anxiety, depression, and trauma. Seek residential treatment that uses evidence-based therapies, a holistic community of care, and individualized treatment plan options.

Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient treatment is a good choice for people who have secure, substance-free and supportive home environments. Outpatient programs can vary in intensity, from outpatient therapy that meets two or three times a week to programs that meet daily for several hours a day.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Medications including buprenorphine, naltrexone, and methadone are used in combination with therapy and peer group support in medication-assisted treatment (MAT). MAT has been used for a number of years and studies have shown it is effective for opioid and alcohol use disorders.

MAT programs can last between six months and a year. Some MAT programs last longer than a year, especially for opioid use disorders.

Aftercare And Alumni Services

A number of people who have completed drug and/or alcohol rehab continue to receive support for maintaining sobriety through alumni and aftercare programs.

These programs can include evidence-based group and individual therapy. Some programs also include peer group and 12-step support, as well as employment assistance.

Length Of Addiction Treatment

Drug and alcohol treatment should be individually designed to meet your specific health needs.

You’ll find that many programs fit into standard program lengths, including:

  • 30-day programs
  • 60-day programs
  • 90-day programs
  • 120-day programs

How To Pay For Treatment

Federal law and regulations stipulate that private insurance companies must provide substance abuse treatment the same way that they fund treatment for physical health challenges like cancer and heart disease.

New York State also reinforces regulations on private insurance companies. As a result, most New York rehab programs accept nearly all private insurance plans. Some rehab centers also offer scholarships, discounts, and payment plans.
