Drug Abuse Help

When seeking help, it is important to find ways that are helpful for you. What works for one person, may not work for you. Do not be afraid to tell people what you want and need.

Effective treatment must attend to the multiple needs of the individual and not just the drug use. Any associated medical, psychological, social, and cognitive problem must be be addressed. Research indicates that for most individuals, the beginning of improvement begins at about 3 months into treatment.

Types of Treatment

There are many types of treatments available. Some of the most common treatments are:

The treatment should be tailored to the individual and will vary according to both the severity of the substance abuse and the patient's particular problems, needs, and strengths.

For the best medical care, seek a health professional with expertise and experience in dealing with substance abuse.

In some cases, hospital based care is needed. It is often needed when when substance abuse has led to physical problems that may be life-threatening, or when it is associated with severe psychological or behavioral problems.

Hospital based care may include inpatient, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient and/or residential care in a substance abuse specialty unit or facility.
