How to Find a Drug Rehabilitation Center


Contact local churches and faith-based organizations. Churches sometimes offer drug-and-alcohol rehabilitation programs. For spiritual people, this can be a beneficial avenue because the professional help provided is reinforced with spiritual guidance. Many of these programs also are free of charge.


Ask for assistance from Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), an organization that is part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. It offers tools such as an in-depth nationwide directory of treatment centers. The list is broken down based on different factors: outpatient vs. residential, etc.


Talk to a doctor. Insurance issues often prevent people from trying this approach, but it is important to remember that free clinics and government-run health departments are available for those without health insurance. These clinics work closely with local branches of Health and Human Services and can help provide information on treatment options.


Rely on a support group. Admitting weakness is never easy, especially in delicate matters such as drug addiction. However, relying on family and friends for help can remove some of the burden of addiction. Ask supportive friends and/or family members to recommend or help locate an adequate rehabilitation center.

Drug addiction is a powerful force, one that has the capability to destroy many lives. In the best case, someone battling addiction will reach a point where they realize that they need professional help. For various reasons, be it economic or time-based, some might have trouble finding drug-rehabilitation centers that suit their needs. It doesn't have to be a chore.
