Drug Treatment Programs

There are many drug treatment programs available and it may be hard to choose which course to take. However, getting help is more important than the kind of help one gets, although some drug treatment programs are more effective for some people than for others.

Twelve-step programs are popular drug treatment programs which cost no money, except perhaps for nominal dues to cover the rent for the room and refreshments. They are Twelve step programs are not formal drug treatment programs, many clinics and centers incorporate them into their own programs.

Other drug treatment programs are medically oriented and take place in what resembles a hospital setting. Patients are assigned rooms and are monitored on a regular basis. They are encouraged to eat healthy food and to exercise. Some are given special medication to help ease them through their withdrawal symptoms. This might be in the form of a treatment which will soothe the withdrawals symptoms themselves or a replacement drug which can  mimic the effects of the drug they are trying to stop using. Suboxone is often used as a replacement drug for opiates, and is much less addictive than opiates, but some drug treatment programs restrict usage of this medicine to a few days until the patient can be weaned off of it.
