What Treatment Options Are Available to Me?
There are a number of treatment options available at differing program lengths. Depending on your needs, you may require a more intensive option like inpatient care, or you may only require treatment in an outpatient facility. These different types of programs offer many of the same options, as well as referrals to free or low-cost programs (like support groups) if they are not offered by the facility specifically.
It is important to consider your needs for recovery at this time and to decide what type or facility will be most beneficial to you. As stated by the NIDA, “Effective treatment attends to multiple needs of the individual, not just his or her drug abuse,” and it is important that you find the best program for your needs.
