Recovery begins with treatment.

Research shows that treatment can help people addicted to drugs stop using, avoid relapse, and recover to a drug-free life. But addiction is complex, and no two people respond to treatment the same way. The most effective treatment addresses multiple needs of the individual — not only the drug addiction.

Treatment Process

  • Detoxification
  • Medicated assisted treatment (if needed)
  • Healthy behavior counseling
  • Avoidance of triggers
  • Learning to address cravings and urges
  • Ongoing counseling
  • Support from family and friends
  • Addressing coexisting conditions

Glossary of Terms

Detoxification
The process that enables the body to rid itself of a drug
Inpatient Treatment
When a patient is admitted to a hospital or clinic and will stay for treatment
Outpatient Treatment
When a patient is not admitted, but visits a hospital or clinic for treatment
