Help For Substance Abuse Issues

The problem of substance abuse has a long history in the United States, yet the issue shows no signs of going away. Towns and cities across the US are dealing with the problem of people giving in to substance abuse issues that leave them unable to cope responsibly with day to day life. Whether the problem is with drugs, alcohol, or both, if left untreated, a reliance on intoxicants can turn a person’s life upside down.

Job loss, financial ruin and the devastation of a family are all side effects of substance abuse if the person using doesn’t seek help. Due to all of this, drug rehab centers are now located all across the country, and our center, the Gray Institute, is ready to offer you the help you need. Our substance abuse treatment facility in Syosset, New York, is a center dedicated to the treatment of those in need of help.

Healing With an Individual Approach

Our drug rehab facility in Syosset, New York, is dedicated to the process of addiction recovery for all who need it, and for all who have the courage to take on the journey towards sobriety. Once a client enters the addiction recovery center for treatment, an individualized plan will be created. Since every case is different, each client will have certain needs that must be addressed in order for them to get the help they need to attain sobriety. Once a plan has been established, which will involve a certain level of counseling and support, the client will move into the first phase of treatment, which is detoxification in the drug detox clinic.

Detoxification in the Addiction Recovery Facility

The detoxification off drugs and alcohol is one of the first steps in treatment at the addiction treatment center. It’s been found that substance abuse has a psychological basis as well as a physical basis, so both aspects must be treated during recovery. The detox process involves weaning the client off of the intoxicants in their system.

Detox may bring on serious withdrawal symptoms which can include fever, tremors, vomiting, diarrhea, and feelings of panic. In some cases these symptoms can be fatal if not treated. At the addiction treatment facility, a professional will be offering supervision and support at all times to see that the client comes through detox safely.

After detox, the client will begin a therapeutic program that will involve counseling sessions, either in a one-on-one or a supportive group setting. These sessions will help the client deal openly with their psychological issues, so they can come to a better understanding of informs their substance abuse issues. Every client in counseling will know that their openness and honesty is fully supported by the rest of the recovery community, and that they can feel safe at all times in this setting.

As the recovery work continues, the client will also be encouraged to take part in group activities that can include wilderness walks, art classes and physically engaging activities like yoga. All of these activities help create bonds of trust between people in the center, and engage the mind and body in ways that may have been neglected when a person was dealing with their substance abuse problems.


Once the clinical recovery has been completed, the client must begin to think about continuing their sobriety outside the facility. Our counselors will help to create an aftercare plan that will support the client’s ongoing recovery, whether that involves living in a group home for a time, or committing to ongoing therapy and twelve-step sessions.
