Drug use can have a devastating effect on your health leading to chronic problems, and heart, liver and kidney disease. Drug use can deplete finances, ruin relationships and it can end careers. Making the decision to get help is a step in the right direction, but with more than a million people struggling with drug use and so many options for rehab, you may need some help in finding a low cost drug rehab in New York.
Determining the type of treatment you need for drug use is key in finding the right center. Not everyone needs detox, it depends on the type of drugs you have been using, the length of time you have been taking them and the amount you have been using. Some detox centers will take patients on a sliding scale basis; meaning that the fees that they will charge you are based on your income, but most inpatient detox centers will only take you if you have insurance that covers detox.
As you are searching for a detox facility, you should give careful consideration to the philosophy of the program and type of program. Inpatient or residential programs offer a place to rest while you detoxify, while outpatient programs offer medical treatment for detox and counseling, but you visit on a daily or weekly basis rather than stay as a resident.
Most of the traditional treatment centers follow the concept that addiction is a disease, that you inherited an addiction gene, that there is no cure and that you will need treatment and therapy for the rest of your life. These philosophies can take away all hope from the person who is seeking their services to help them get well. And while the services may come at a low cost initially, the amount of money you will spend in the long run as a repeat customer will add up.
Â If you do not need detox services, but are looking for a program to help you stay off drugs, there are options for low cost drug rehab in New York. 12 step programs follow the pattern of the traditional treatment philosophies: addiction Â is a disease and there is no cure. 12 step programs advocate belief in a higher power and that Â success is achieved through total abstinence. 12 step programs require members to participate in group therapy and support group meetings. The drawback to the low cost of 12 step programs is that there is no hope offered at all. If you follow their ideas, you will have to be in treatment for the rest of your life. There is a better way to overcome substance use.
