Seeking info re: Opioid Detox and Rehab in NY area
April 17, 2017 8:09 AM   Subscribe

I'm doing some research about opioid detox and treatment for a family of my acquaintance and would like info and opinions regarding the following:

1- Is there a detox in the New York (or surrounding) areas where an opioid user can go voluntarily and has a kind staff? In a detox, are no psychotropic drugs allowed at all, even if, for example, the individual is prescribed an anti-anxiety medication for panic attacks?

2- What are the best drug rehabilitation programs in the New York (and surrounding) areas?

3- What are thoughts about necessity of a residential (versus day) treatment program for opioid addiction?

Note: I worked at Daytop for a number of years in the 80's. I'm wondering if there are programs that are not as "tough" and unforgiving as this type of "t.c." (therapeutic community).

No personal experience but I've heard good things about Hope House in Albany.

Not a detox, but contact Exponents for the outpatient treatment options.
