Addiction101 Addiction Network

There are several ways to seek help for drug addiction without going to a rehab facility, including:

Support groups: Joining a support group, such as Narcotics Anonymous, can be a great way to find help and encouragement from others who have gone through similar experiences.

Counseling: Individual and/or group counseling with a licensed therapist or addiction counselor can help address underlying emotional issues that may have contributed to the addiction.

Outpatient treatment programs: Outpatient treatment programs offer structured addiction treatment while allowing you to continue living at home and maintain your daily routine.

Medication-assisted treatment: Medications like methadone, buprenorphine, and naltrexone can help reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms, making it easier to stop using drugs.

Self-help techniques: Incorporating healthy habits such as exercise, meditation, and self-care can help reduce stress and improve overall wellbeing, which can help with addiction recovery.
