National Resources

Use the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) Treatment locator at left to search for treatment for addiction and co-ocurring mental health disorders. 

 

For in-patient residential treatment consider using a zip other than where the patient lives.  Being removed from the temptation of nearby dealers, or friends that are not conducive to recovery can be a helpful tool. 

 

TIP: Once in the locator, use the blue box at the top right of the page to narrow the search.  For instance, by scrolling through all the options under "Substance Abuse" you can filter by treatment type, setting, payment/insurance accepted, and by gender or age of patient.

Drugfree.org

The Partnership for Drug-Free Kids is a national organization dedicated to reducing youth substance use and supporting families who are impacted by addiction. Their website and helplines provide a wealth of resources, particularly for parents, regarding prevention, treatment, and recovery for youth.
