Find Substance Abuse Help

Choosing a substance abuse treatment center shouldn't be the hardest part of recovery.

Alcohol & Drug Rehabilitation Centers

When substance abuse starts to take over your life, the best preventative step is to learn about your options for alcohol treatment centers, drug rehabilitation, and ongoing therapy through drug treatment programs or alcohol treatment. If you or a loved one are suffering from both drug and alcohol addiction, a dual diagnosis treatment center may be the best option.

Choosing the Best Alcohol Rehab Center

More than 15 million people struggle with an alcohol use disorder in the United States, but less than 8% of those receive treatment, according to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. It’s no wonder, then, that alcohol-related deaths are the third most common preventable cause of death in the United States. 

  • Call an alcohol helpline

Identifying Drug Rehabilitation Programs 

There are a number of different drug rehabilitation centers, which can make choosing the best option difficult and confusing. 

  • Try searching “alcohol treatment near me”
  • Narrow programs by substance or preference (i.e. heroin treatment, Christian drug rehab, etc.)
  • You can also use a referral service, which is a free way to navigate many options. 

Do I Need Help With Drinking?

It may be time to research alcohol rehab centers if you’re:

  1. Tolerant to the effects of alcohol 
  2. Experiencing withdrawal syndromes
  3. Drinking more than recommended for your height and weight
  4. Unable to cut back on drinking
  5. Disinterested in other activities 

Calling A Substance Abuse Helpline

If you or a loved one are ready to call a substance abuse hotline, you may not be sure what to ask or how the conversation will go. Luckily, the staff at alcohol addiction hotlines are trained to talk you through the process. During the call, a hotline call-taker will know what resources are in your area, if your insurance will pay for your inpatient or outpatient treatment, how to find a reputable treatment center, what addiction treatment entails, and any other questions you might have. 

By calling a referral service or hotline, you can determine the best alcohol or drug rehab centers for you or your family member. Remember that there is always support for those who need help with drinking, and support for families of alcoholics. The best way to help an alcoholic stop drinking is by taking the first step toward their recovery, or your own.
