According to the ONDCP, “Approximately 9.82 percent of New York residents reported past-month use of illicit drugs; the national average was 8.82 percent.” While the rate of overdose deaths was actually lower than that of the national average, the state also has other areas where its statistics rival that of the other states. “In 2009-2010, New York was one of the top ten states for drug-use rates in several categories: past-year cocaine use among persons age 12 or older; illicit drug dependence among persons age 12 and older; and illicit drug dependence among young adults age 18-25.”
The state exhibits a high number of abuse- and addiction-based issues like an extremely high rate of treatment admissions for heroin abuse. “Heroin is the most commonly cited drug among primary drug treatment admissions” in the state, and “data from the Treatment Episode Data Set (TEDS) indicate one-third of primary treatment admissions in New York were for heroin in 2011.” Below heroin are marijuana at 28 percent and cocaine/crack at 20 percent. Opiate treatment admission rates have been climbing steadily since 2005 where they have risen from under 5 percent of admissions to over 15 percent by 2011.
Unfortunately, addiction to drugs such as heroin, crack/cocaine, prescription opioids, and sometimes even marijuana requires treatment that many individuals cannot afford. According to the United States Census Bureau, the average income of New Yorkers is higher than that of the national average, but the percentage of individuals living below the poverty level is about the same (15.3 percent and 15.4 percent, respectively). This is because there are many different income levels for those living in the state, but this financial discrepancy can leave some individuals without the ability to afford the treatment they need.
Free rehab centers, which exist all over the state of New York and all across the country, can be the answer for many of these individuals. They require little to no payment (unlike many private facilities), provide the most effective treatments for a particular patient’s addiction syndrome (both medication, when applicable, and therapy), and allow patients to receive the kind of help they need through all parts of their recovery process including withdrawal, treatment, and aftercare.
It can be extremely difficult for someone who is struggling financially to find a facility that will not only provide the treatment methods they need but also do it at a low or no cost. The centers listed above, in cities like Albany, Bohemia, and Amherst provide this kind of help without causing patients to incur extra expenses. In the mecca of New York City and even small towns like Albion, free rehab centers exist to help patients recover as safely and effectively as possible.
If you are a resident of the state of New York and are looking for affordable treatment in your area, choose one of the free rehab centers above and call today to ask about your eligibility as well as the methods the particular facility uses. You can now start your recovery and change your life for the better without the fear of high costs from private treatment facilities.
