Drugs & Substance Abuse


Substance abuse treatment may be provided in a variety of settings, including on an outpatient basis, in residential treatment, or while in confinement (for offenders). In many cases, substance abuse treatment is intended to address co-occurring disorders, such as mental illness. Treatment generally involves some type of therapeutic services provided over a sustained period of time, which may address issues such as motivation, problem solving, and developing skills to resist substance abuse and other problem behaviors.
