Residents living in New York City, Buffalo and Syracuse who have substance abuse issues can find free help in state-sponsored drug rehab facilities. The sites offer detoxification, followed by treatment that combines drug-suppressing medications and behavioral counseling. Programs involve the family in their counseling sessions as well as customized treatments and one-on-one counseling. After detoxification, drug rehab residents enter a therapeutic regimen that supports recovery. If addiction treatment is not working as planned, then the patient’s therapy is altered to ensure that a relapse does not occur. All the full services that are offered in a pricier facility are featured at New York’s state-operated sites.
