Drug and Alcohol detoxification on Long Island
Substance abuse has been a long-standing problem with Americans. In a study by the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), 19.7 million American adults (aged 12 and older) battled a substance use disorder in 2017. Among these substance abuses, 74% of adults were shown to suffer from alcoholism while 38% of adults battled drug use disorder. From this, it could be seen as a threat to many people’s livelihood and quality of life.
However, it is not impossible to combat because there are institutions and rehab centers that would help recover from substance abuse such as NY Detox and other treatment facilities and as well as our very own Long Island Detox. Before undergoing treatment for substance abuse, patients are often required to undergo medical detox before starting an inpatient addiction treatment program.
Our Long Island Detox facilities are known to be one of the best as it offers a safe and comfortable drug and alcohol detox so if you knew someone suffering from substance abuse, we are sure to help you with your path to recovery.
How does Detox Work?
Detoxification or detox, in a professional addiction treatment setting, is done using 3 stages: evaluation, stabilization, and preparation for treatment. It is mentioned that detox is done prior to substance abuse treatment programs so these steps are crucial for the whole treatment process of substance abuse.
In the evaluation step, the health practitioners would check for any potential or co-occurring disorders or mental/behavioral problems. On the other hand, the stabilization step is where the individual begins the detox process with the assistance of medical practitioners which will also help manage the withdrawal symptoms or without medications, diet, and hydration. Lastly, the preparation for treatment helps in the encouragement of the patient to be fully active in the recovery process. All of these are done with the best consideration for the patients’ wellbeing in our Long Island detox which will ensure great quality detoxification.
