How to Locate a Drug or Alcohol Rehabilitation Center
The National Rehabilitation Centers Division of StopImpairedDriving.com is an online resource for locating alcohol and drug addiction treatment centers using multiple criteria. For example, you may need to locate a center that treats alcohol abuse, accepts medicaid, and speaks Spanish, all in a particular state. To do this, please follow these steps:
STEP #1: Begin by choosing a state from the map above.
STEP #2: You may begin to refine at the state level, or click on a city if you are searching in a more specific area.
STEP #3: Use the filters on the right side of the site to choose selections. When you pick multiple selections in a single box, you are saying “this OR this”. But when you select checkboxes from a second box, it is saying “AND”.
For example: Under “Primary Focus” box, select “Drug & Alcohol Abuse Treatment Services” and also “Psychological Health & Drug/Alcohol Abuse Services.” This says you are looking for either of these two choices. Then, under the next box “Services Provided” pick “Detox” and “Sober-Living House”
So this means you are looking for a program that offers:
“Drug & Alcohol Abuse Treatment Services” OR “Psychological Health & Drug/Alcohol Abuse Services”
“Detox” OR “Sober-Living House”
Pharmacotherapy for Substance Use Disorders
Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is a form of pharmacotherapy and refers to any treatment for a substance use disorder that includes a pharmacologic intervention as part of a comprehensive substance abuse treatment plan with an ultimate goal of patient recovery with full social function.
In the US, MAT has been demonstrated to be effective in the treatment of alcohol dependence with Food and Drug Administration approved drugs such as disulfiram, naltrexone and acamprosate; and opioid dependence with methadone, naltrexone and buprenorphine.
As part of a comprehensive treatment program, MAT has been shown to:
- Improve survival
- Increase retention in treatment
- Decrease illicit opiate use
- Decrease hepatitis and HIV seroconversion
- Decrease criminal activities
- Increase employment
- Improve birth outcomes with perinatal addicts
