Various levels of care and settings are available depending on the individual's needs from outpatient counseling to inpatient and long-term care. An effective treatment program is comprehensive and can provide assistance in other life areas including educational or vocational goals, as well as medical or mental health issues. The type of treatment is dependent upon the stage of addiction. It is best to go to a professional to find out what is the most appropriate service. You may find the resources for a professional assessment by reaching out to the State certified service providers. These providers are listed on the Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) website or call OASAS addiction services helpline 877-8-HOPE-NY or Nassau County Department of Drug and Alcohol 24-hour hotline number 516-481-4000. Self help can be found at the Intergroup Association of Alcoholics Anonymous website or the Narcotics Anonymous website.
