Your doctor, friends, and peers can help you find local treatment.
Recognizing that there is an addiction present is the first and most important step to reclaiming life. A close second would be willingness or eagerness to seek help for said addiction. With those two important paces taken, the next logical thing to do would be to find a local detox center that can provide immediate treatment.
Welcome to recognition, buckle up for what can seem like an endless array of questions.
Where should you turn?
How do you know that they help with what you are suffering from?
How do you know they are reliable?
Can you beat this?
The good news is that there is help available and that it is usually relatively close at hand. Finding the right facility for you has never been easier, thanks to modern technology.

Along with help on a national level, it seems that some states have lists broken down by county as to the resources from drug and alcohol detox and treatment centers available, such as this one from the state of Vermont.
Your specific demographics or things about you can also lead to help that has been funded specifically for those like you, who may find themselves in a similar situation, such as United States Veterans, or those that are homeless.
Individual states have different services funded both locally and nationally, such as Homeless Services. Homeless Services provide substance abuse services to homeless individuals with alcohol and other drug problems. Most of these services are provided within the homeless shelter system.
Consulting your local phone directory, going to the library to find resources, and/or asking your pastor or spiritual advisor are also good starts on this road to getting the help you need and deserve. For immediate assistance in deciphering the help that is available, call the Rehab Centers helpline at 800-481-6320. Help is out there!
