Many components will determine the type of facility that best suites your recovery needs and challenges. The focus can vary with each facility. Some choose to focus directly on the drug or alcohol abuse itself, while it is not uncommon to have the focus lie on other aspects of recovery. Examples of this type of focus include employment training, social behavior practice, together with an achievement or reward system. With more then14,500 registered treatment facilities in the United States there are many methods of drug and alcohol rehabilitation. Counseling, behavioral therapy, physician supervised medication, and case management, are just a few services that you can expect from a highly qualified facility.

Addicts who have been struggling and suffering for many years or are experiencing a very severe addiction may need a more complete care service focusing on behavioral and pharmacological approaches. This treatment may include counselors, physicians, psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses and social workers.
