Many different treatment programs exist to provide adults with the medical care, counseling & support necessary to overcome serious substance abuse problems and take back control of their lives. These programs utilize medications, medical intervention, counseling, therapy and various other treatment methodologies to help adults to reduce the symptoms of withdrawal, eliminate cravings, heal on a psychological and emotional level and ultimately recover from addiction.
Like many gender specific drug rehab programs, adult treatment programs for addiction focus on the individual needs of each patient and utilize peer support & shared experiences to make adults feel comfortable in the treatment environment. This makes adult treatment programs more conducive to the overall recovery of the addict. Adult treatment programs can reduce feelings of despair and hopelessness and increase awareness in the fact that there are others who are also going through similar situations—you are not alone!

The most common adult treatment programs for addiction include:
- Inpatient drug rehab
- Outpatient drug rehab
- Long-term drug rehab
Many of these programs also provide effective treatment for dual-diagnosis or co-occurring mental or physical health conditions. Adult drug rehab centers are well aware of the various co-occurring health conditions that many adults suffer from, especially when addiction is a concern. From anxiety to depression, diabetes to chronic pain, adults can expect specialized treatment that is geared toward their changing needs when they enter a qualified adult treatment program.
We understand that adults have many different reasons for using drugs, becoming addicted and for ultimately seeking help. It may be a desire to do better for their children, a desire to help a spouse or loved one or a desire to overcome an internal conflict. Parents seek help from professionals for very different reasons than the elderly or than those who do not have children—adult treatment programs are poised to provide specialized treatment and care for the very diverse needs of adults from all lifestyles.
Whether you use drugs to combat chronic pain or mental illness, if you fell victim to addiction as a result of the legitimate use of prescribed medications or you’re masking a deeper problem, treatment programs and the professional substance abuse counselors and therapists at these facilities can help.
