Drug and alcohol addictions are complex diseases that can involve many or all aspects of an addicted individual's functioning. This includes personal mental and physical issues, family relationships, work and school performance, and social interaction.
Because of the complex nature of drug and alcohol addiction, many factors must be considered when choosing a drug and alcohol treatment program or rehabilitation clinic. Some of these factors may include the type of drugs used, length and frequency of use, associated traumatic events including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and the presence of other co-occuring disorders such as depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, bipolar disorder, and even schizophrenia.
Treatment for drug abuse and addiction is offered in many different settings and levels of care. Depending on the individual needs, an addict/alcoholic or their family may choose from several different treatment options including acute detox, short-term residential inpatient treatment, long-term residential treatment, intensive outpatient programs (IOP), residential outpatient programs, Florida-Model sober living homes, or any number of other types of drug and alcohol rehabilitation clinics. In the United States alone, there are more than 14,500 specialized drug and alcohol treatment facilities providing services to persons with substance abuse disorders.
