Most of the public now personally know someone who is an addict or an alcoholic. Addiction and alcoholism do not discriminate and people who suffer from this deadly disease need to receive drug and alcohol abuse treatment before they can begin new lives clean and sober. Addiction Treatment Farmingdale NY has been successfully treating addiction and alcoholism for years. Our programs help even the most chronic and lifelong addicts and alcoholics get clean and sober.

Addiction is even harder to overcome the earlier an addict began taking drugs or abusing alcohol. According to the National Institute on Drug Addiction:
“Although taking drugs at any age can lead to addiction, research shows that the earlier a person begins to use drugs, the more likely he or she is to develop serious problems. This may reflect the harmful effect that drugs can have on the developing brain; it also may result from a mix of early social and biological vulnerability factors, including unstable family relationships, exposure to physical or sexual abuse, genetic susceptibility, or mental illness. Still, the fact remains that early use is a strong indicator of problems ahead, including addiction” (NIDA)
The longer someone has been abusing drugs and alcohol does not just mean the problem itself is worse. It also means that their past includes more harmful memories and events that happened to them while they were using. This then means they need a treatment program that will help them safely address the damage that their addiction has caused on their life. We provide recommendations and placement into comprehensive treatment programs for people who are addicted to heroin, methamphetamine, cocaine, prescription drugs, alcohol and other substances. Our programs address why the person started using drugs, how to heal from those reasons and our programs teach addicts and alcoholics what they need to do to embrace a new life in recovery.

According to NIDA, addiction recovery programs, such as the drug rehabs on Long Island, must teach recovering addicts more than just how to stay clean and sober, “Addiction is viewed in the context of an individual’s social and psychological deficits, and treatment focuses on developing personal accountability and responsibility as well as socially productive lives. Treatment that is highly structured… with activities designed to help residents examine damaging beliefs, self-concepts, and destructive patterns of behavior and adopt new, more harmonious and constructive ways to interact with others”.
