For individuals who have identified drug overuse or addiction in their lives, treatment is the next step. There are many different types of treatment. Treatment is dependent on the individual, their finances, and the intensity of treatment needed. The treatment system for drug and/or mental illness can be confusing. Finding treatment options that will benefit an individual’s specific situation can be difficult. Child custody or careers may prevent individuals from seeking treatment. But, there are many options available. Understanding the treatment options and identifying local programs are steps on the road to recovery.
