Whether someone is seeking Massachusetts drug and alcohol rehab centers or they’re looking for a program in another state, key elements of effective treatment include:
- Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) Certain medications are Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved for treating conditions including opioid and alcohol use disorder. Medications can help with symptoms of withdrawal and cravings. Depending on their needs, other medical services may also be available to someone during addiction treatment.
- Inpatient or outpatient rehab Inpatient and outpatient treatment programs often use behavioral therapy approaches and help people work on developing positive coping strategies in a supportive, structured environment.
- Behavioral health care Along with behavioral therapies for addiction, many people also need treatment for co-occurring mental health disorders. There’s a strong correlation between addiction and mental health conditions.
- Self-help and support groups can include 12-step programs like Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, or SMART Recovery. Addiction self-help and recovery groups are a way for people to stay accountable and gain access to valuable social support.
