There are several options for getting drug addiction help. Here are a few:
Contact your healthcare provider: Your doctor can provide you with resources for treatment, including referral to a substance abuse counselor or treatment center.
Look for local treatment centers: There are many inpatient and outpatient drug treatment centers across the country. You can use online directories, such as SAMHSA’s Treatment Locator, to find centers in your area.
Attend support group meetings: Support groups like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) can provide you with the support and guidance you need to overcome addiction.
Talk to a mental health professional: A mental health professional, such as a therapist or counselor, can provide you with guidance and support as you navigate addiction recovery.
Reach out to a helpline: National helplines, such as the National Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) Helpline at 1-800-662-HELP (4357), provide confidential support and resources for people struggling with addiction.
