Due to the physical dependence created by abusing prescription medication, addiction treatment begins in a residential treatment facility. The initial phase of treatment is detox. It is here, under medical supervision, that the symptoms associated with withdrawal from prescription medication are managed, reduced and some times eliminated. The average length of time spent in detox is approximately seven days. During this time, the person will be monitored medically and any psychiatric or psychological issues will be assessed.
After the person is medically stable, they are generally referred to residential treatment to complete the treatment plan designed in detox. By the time most people enter treatment for prescription medication addiction, they have created quite a bit of emotional damage to themselves and loved ones. It takes time to recover from shame, grief, guilt, and rebuild a level of trust amongst the family. Recovery in a supportive therapeutic environment eliminates many of the outside distractions and allows a person to focus on issues relating to their recovery. The length of stay is approximately twenty days and may be followed by outpatient therapy.

Heroin is an addictive drug known to create a euphoric and pleasurable feeling in humans. Since tolerance to the drug becomes high with consumption, the addict starts using more and more heroin to counter that tolerance. The drug ruins human lives, and is illegally traded on a global scale.
Statistics show that around 20 million people are addicted to heroin and related drugs (opiates) around the globe. This also results in them suffering from other diseases such as HIV and Hepatitis C due to the sharing of needles. Putting an end to this addiction is a must for those struggling and a heroin vaccine might be the answer.
Treatment of cocaine addiction in Yonkers can be highly difficult since it is very easy to relapse. Additionally there are currently no FDA approved medications for cocaine abuse. Withdrawal from cocaine can lead to use of other substitute substances such as alcohol, Valium or anti-anxiety medications in order to alleviate the symptoms. This method is not recommended as it simply shifts dependency from one substance to another. Cocaine addiction treatment must be done under the supervision of a professional medical practitioner and with the support of friends and family.
