Substance Abuse in New York

New York has historically been affected by substance abuse. Most Long Island families have been affected by substance abuse in some way. One major problem in the state, the Drug Enforcement Administration recently announced, is that drug traffickers have begun lacing counterfeit prescription pain medication with the powerful narcotic fentanyl. The result of this is increasing fatal drug overdoses when people unknowingly take the laced substances.

The governor of New York, aided by other state leaders, has put together a comprehensive plan to increase funding for drug abuse rehabilitation and treatment, particularly for those affected by heroin and opioid abuse. The new plan adds millions of dollars to treatment budgets for inpatient rehab beds, prevention efforts, and enforcement of drug laws throughout New York.

Treatment Options in Bay Shore

Many substance abuse rehab options are available in and near Bay Shore for people battling substance abuse issues. The Family Services League of Suffolk County houses the Non-Intensive Chemical Dependency Program in Bay Shore.

Family Services League

Family Services League (FSL) helps over 50,000 people each year fight substance abuse and mental health issues with a wide range of non-profit services. It offers treatment to adults, adolescents, and families. Rehab programs include services for people with co-occurring mental health and substance abuse disorders. It also offers therapy from bilingual, Spanish-speaking staff and therapists.

Treatment begins with screenings and assessments to determine the appropriate level of care for each individual. The goal of rehab at the FSL is to help each person maintain abstinence from harmful substances and to support long-term recovery. Most people in treatment will participate in individual and group counseling, relapse prevention therapy, medication management, and psychiatric evaluations if necessary. FSL also has specialty groups for people who may share common experiences, such as survivors of trauma or abuse.

During outpatient rehab, people will learn about the disease of addiction, and will develop skills to cope with emotions, family dynamics, and substance abuse triggers. Those undergoing treatment will initiate ties to social supports for sobriety and develop a plan for long-term sobriety. The FSL staff includes medical doctors as well as clinical staff, social workers, and certified substance abuse counselors. The programs also support outpatient methadone, Suboxone, and other medication-management programs.
