Where Can I Find Medical Detox Centers in New York?

There are 579 outpatient facilities, 214 residential facilities, and 72 hospital inpatient facilities throughout New York.1 Depending on how physically dependent you are on alcohol, alcohol withdrawal syndrome can have symptoms ranging from mild to life-threatening. Among the symptoms are irritability, anxiety, agitation, high blood pressure, raised heart rate, seizures, and in extreme cases, delirium tremens or death.2

Experiencing alcohol withdrawals alone can be extremely dangerous. Supervision in a medical detox center not only alleviates discomfort but treats medical complications so that they do not become life-threatening. The process of getting alcohol out of your body and helping you manage the immediate withdrawal symptoms is called detox.3 Programs like these offer physicians on-site and 24-hour care to help gain management over alcohol withdrawal symptoms.3

You can find detox facilities throughout New York by searching the SAMHSA directory here.

Verifying Insurance...
1 Insurance Disclaimer: American Addiction Centers will attempt to verify your health insurance benefits and/or necessary authorizations on your behalf. Please note, this is only a quote of benefits and/or authorization. We cannot guarantee payment or verification eligibility as conveyed by your health insurance provider will be accurate and complete. Payment of benefits are subject to all terms, conditions, limitations, and exclusions of the member’s contract at time of service. Your health insurance company will only pay for services that it determines to be “reasonable and necessary.” American Addiction Centers will make every effort to have all services preauthorized by your health insurance company. If your health insurance company determines that a particular service is not reasonable and necessary, or that a particular service is not covered under your plan, your insurer will deny payment for that service and it will become your responsibility.

Why Choose American Addiction Centers?

American Addiction Centers (AAC) is a nationwide network of facilities that includes an alumni support system, quality care, and a 90-day promise. The 90-day promise holds our facilities accountable by offering 30 days of complimentary treatment if there is a relapse within 90 days of completing treatment.

The AAC alumni support system hosts fun gatherings and events. The alumni coordinators also check-in with previous patients to make sure they are supported in their long term recovery.

State-Funded Insurance (i.e. Medicaid)

Medicaid is a federal government healthcare coverage program that is used by about 72 million people.4 It is for adults with low-income who need assistance, people with certain types of disabilities, the elderly, and children whose caretakers meet the low-income requirements. Medicaid is funded by the government, but each state administers it separately.4

You may be eligible for Medicaid in New York, and if you have been turned down previously this doesn’t necessarily mean you aren’t eligible now. The Affordable Care Act changed many of the rules around Medicaid like how much money you can make and how many assets you can own and still be eligible. While not all facilities accept it, a total of 737 facilities, 87.5% of New York’s facilities, accept Medicaid.1
