Effective Types of Treatment

When looking for a treatment program, remember the recovery process looks different for everyone. You are unique, and your addiction may be tied to several factors. The most effective type of treatment for you is the one that considers your personal needs and meets them innovatively. According to the National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA), the most effective treatment programs include a combination of medicine and therapy to address addiction. You’ll learn to live drug-free and may consider joining a support group post-treatment for ongoing support.

Types of Rehab Programs

When you start looking for a rehabilitation program, you may be surprised at all of the options that are available. You may just contact a counselor for a few sessions, or you may simply opt to join a support group. Although this approach works for many addicts, people with serious problems often find that they need to take a more comprehensive approach.

How to Find a Treatment Center

There are numerous resources available to help you find a treatment center. Many states offer behavioral health departments and supportive organizations. Additionally, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) provides a location-based search tool for recovery facilities. For personalized assistance based on your criteria, our extensive network of recovery centers nationwide can help you find the right treatment center. Contact us for tailored guidance.


Finding a Support Group

After a rehabilitation program, surrounding yourself with supportive people can help your recovery efforts. Many people find that a support group is the best source of encouragement. You can use any of the following techniques to find a support group:

  • Talk to your doctor, counselor, or other healthcare provider.
  • Check your phone book for a list of local support groups.
  • Consult with your religious or secular community groups.
  • Speak with local or national groups who are devoted to helping people get past addictions.
