If you are someone you love are suffering from alcohol or drug addiction, you may be wondering where to look for help. The good news is that there are a number of resources you can use to find treatment for all types of substance addiction. The key is to take immediate action and seek professional help. Below are some avenues you can take to explore outpatient addiction treatment.
The first step you should take is to talk to a medical professional. You can talk to a primary doctor who can refer you to substance abuse specialists. At this point, the specialist can discern the severity of substance abuse and recommend appropriate treatment. If you do not have access to a medical professional, you can seek the expert advice of a counselor or a therapist with experience in substance addiction.
For those who do not have access to a medical professional, one can seek help at a local government social service office. Just about every local government has some sort of substance intervention or counseling program. These free programs can provide guidance on how to seek appropriate outpatient addiction treatment. In order to seek out these government programs, perform an internet search of government substance abuse programs in your city. These government programs will usually have a hotline or a website where you can ask a number of questions. Some of the questions you should ask are what programs are available, how long do the programs last and how can someone qualify to participate in the program.
Finally, you can seek help directly at an addiction treatment center. Most outpatient addiction treatment centers will offer free consultations and free tours of the facility. During the consultation, it is important that you ask a number of questions to see if the treatment center is right for you or your loved one. First, you should ask if the addiction center can handle the specific treatment that you or someone you love will require. You should also ask how long the treatment will last. Finally, you should ask about the qualifications of the counselors and medical professionals at the treatment center.
