The goal of the NSUH at Plainview Chemical Dependency Detoxification Unit at Syosset Hospital is to provide comprehensive treatment to the alcohol dependent or poly-addicted person during the detoxification phase of treatment.
For people whose lives have become unmanageable through the use of alcohol and drugs, we provide the first step in treatment toward recovery.
Our program is founded on the principles of the self-help groups aiming toward a life of abstinence. We provide for the physical and emotional needs of the person who wants to abstain from alcohol and drugs and achieve a life of sobriety.
The Chemical Dependency Detoxification Unit provides assessment, counseling and education specific to the disease of addiction. These services are provided in a planned program of scheduled lectures, films, group meetings and participation in self-help groups.
Our goal is to provide the patient with the first step toward recovery. To this end, an individualized plan of treatment is developed.
Because we believe that recovery requires individual commitment and extends beyond detoxification, each person participates in a plan for continuing treatment which may include referral to a rehabilitation program, either in or out-patient, following completion of the detoxification phases of treatment.
Our team includes experienced certified alcohol and substance abuse counselors, internists who are certified in the field of addictions, physician's assistant, recreational therapists, certified Registered Nurses and Licensed Practical Nurses in the field of addictions, along with other health care professionals.
All of our staff are trained in the treatment of chemical dependency.
We accept referrals from individuals themselves, family members, employee assistance program representatives, clergy, health care professionals and self-help group members. Screenings are performed every day from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. All inquires are strictly confidential.
All forms of insurance are accepted. For additional information call:
