Drug And Alcohol Addiction In New York, New York

Often, people in New York City check into rehab for a Heroin addiction, but the number of people getting help for other addictions is also on the rise. New York City has many treatment programs sprawled throughout each borough and areas just outside the city.

New York City has rehabs that can fit varying treatment needs and budget, from deluxe outpatient programs to state-funded residential facilities.

Some New Yorkers choose to travel out of the city for a change of environment that can be more conducive to recovery. From New Jersey to Upstate New York, there are many treatment centers within driving distance of NYC.

Should I Travel Outside New York City For Treatment?

Most people associate certain people and places with their addiction. Leaving behind the fast-paced environment of the city, at least for the duration of treatment, could be a good way to get out of a setting that can trigger a relapse. Traveling outside the city can allow those with an addiction to fully focus on building a sober life.

Drug Abuse In New York City

Rates of drug abuse are typically higher in urban city centers. With New York City being the largest metropolitan area in the US, it’s no surprise that addiction affects many of its residents. Among illicit drugs, Cocaine and Marijuana are widely abused, but it’s Heroin abuse that is one of the city’s greatest struggles.

Addiction Treatment Services In NYC

The City of New York has an abundance of resources and services for those struggling with an addiction. The ultimate goal for these services is to prevent drug deaths and help people in the city get sober. Some of the services available to New Yorkers include:

Syringe Exchanges

NYC provides access to clean syringes for intravenous drug users to protect them from transmittable diseases like HIV and hepatitis C. New cases of HIV among intravenous drug users in NYC has dropped by 95% in the last 20 years thanks to programs like these.

Overdose Prevention

Because of the high number of accidental overdose deaths, the city provides overdose rescue kits with Naloxone for those addicted to Heroin or other Opiates. Naloxone blocks the effects of Opiate drugs and acts as an effective antidote for those who have overdosed.

Harm Reduction Services

NYC has harm reduction services providing educational programs for anyone — including those actively using drugs and their family members. Through these programs, people learn how to prevent harm from drug use, such as overdose and disease transmission.

Maintenance Medication

New York City has clinics to help those with an Opiate addiction relieve cravings and withdrawal symptoms. The city provides Buprenorphine, Methadone, and Naltrexone to those who need it. Each of those medications act on the same brain receptors as Opiates, which helps addicted people function without their drugs of abuse.

Inpatient And Outpatient Treatment

The Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) has state-funded residential facilities in Brooklyn, Staten Island, Queens and the Bronx. This is a good option for New York residents who can’t find affordable treatment. These treatment centers accept people based on certain criteria, such as having a co-occurring mental health disorder or needing 24-hour supervision. OASAS also has outpatient treatment centers in the city.
