There are thousands of centers that offer addiction help in New York. We can help you find the one that’s right for you.
What are the Drug Problems in New York?
Every drug is used in New York, but heroin is the worst.
One quarter of people who go to prison for drugs had something to do with heroin.
One in five people who get drug rehab in New York are treated for heroin addiction.
Heroin is no longer a drug used by ‘junkies’ in the street – it is now being used by white collar, middle class people, and by kids in college and high school, or even younger.
The heroin in New York is usually quite pure – which means someone can sniff it instead of using a needle. This appeals to white collar people, they don’t feel like ‘junkies’ and they think it’s less dangerous.
In fact, about four out of ten school kids interviewed – from grades 8 through 12 – said they don’t think using heroin a couple of times was a big deal, as long as you don’t use a needle. The 8th graders were more convinced of this than the older kids and, believe me, they have plenty of opportunity to find out first hand. Drugs are all over the schools.
But heroin is heroin, no matter how you take it.
Do you or someone you care about need help with heroin addiction?
We’ve helped thousands of others overcome drug addiction by helping them find resources in New York that will work for them.
Can I Get Addiction Help in New York for Prescription Drugs?
Absolutely. Many people go to treatment programs for assistance with dependence on prescription drugs. In fact, so many people are suffering from prescription drug addiction that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention calls it an epidemic.
OxyContin, Vicodin, addiction to other painkillers is very common in New York. Addiction facilities sometimes see more people for prescription drug addiction than for street drugs.
A recent report from the Drug Abuse Warning Network in New York City shows the increase in emergency room visits for opiates increased 168% between 2004 and 2011, with oxycodone emergency visits increasing by a whopping 459%.
Benzodiazepine emergency room visits increased by 134%, and alprazolam visits increased 164% during that period.
Some people get addicted when they get a prescription from their doctor, others just started taking them to get high.
Xanax addiction is also very common, as well as Valium and other tranquilizers and sedatives. Again, sometimes this addiction started with a valid prescription for a valid problem.
But these drugs are so addictive that it’s hard to stop taking them when the original problem no longer exists.
No matter how you started with prescription drugs, several facilities for assistance in New York can help you. However, not all of them are that experienced with these types of drugs.
We can help you sift through the hundreds of drug addiction treatment programs in New York to help find the best program for your situation.

How Can Addiction Help Services Help Me?
For years, we’ve been working with people who need help with drugs or alcohol.
Sometimes they’ve just started drinking or taking drugs, but it already seems to be getting out of hand. Others have been drinking or taking drugs for years. Still others have suddenly discovered that they’re suffering from prescription drug dependence after they received a prescription from their doctor after an illness, accident or surgery.
There are a lot of different situations and a lot of different drugs.
We help people overcome addiction to heroin, cocaine, marijuana (yes, people DO get addicted to marijuana), methamphetamine, other types of ‘street drugs,’ and all kinds of prescription drugs.
Club drugs like Ecstasy and Ketamine are also reasons why some people get addiction help.
We can even help people who sniff glue, paint and other similar things, or who take other weird and very dangerous chemicals.
We’ll help you find the addiction resources you need.
Prescription Drug Addiction Help in New York
When it comes to prescription drugs, people can be addicted to many different types.
OxyContin addiction is very common, as is addiction to other painkillers like Vicodin, Percocet, hydrocodone, oxycodone, methadone, and more.
People also get addicted to sedatives, tranquilizers, sleeping pills, anti-anxiety drugs – there are hundreds of prescription drugs you can get addicted to.
Many people are also having problems with Ritalin and Adderall. Sometimes they start taking these drugs as children – when they’re diagnosed with so-called ADD or hyperactivity – but then they continue taking them into adulthood.
Some people don’t start taking these types of drugs until they’re in college – they use them primarily to stay awake so they can study for exams. But these drugs are also addictive and harmful to the body.
No matter when you start, or why, it’s important to get off prescription drugs as soon as possible.
Every day there are news stories about people overdosing on prescription drugs or dying by taking them in combination with other drugs or alcohol.
In fact, just about every celebrity that uses drugs and dies these days seems to be involved with prescription drugs.
Not all drug addiction treatment programs are experienced with prescription drug rehab – but we can make sure you go to the right facility and work with people who really know what they’re doing.
Can Addiction Help Services Help with Alcohol Abuse or Dependency?
Yes. If you’ve been trying to stop drinking, or get someone else to stop drinking, we know what you’re up against. It’s often very hard for someone who drinks to admit they have a problem – even if it’s obvious to everyone else.
But we can help you figure out what to do.
