One might get confused and may not have a clear view on how to decide the type of resource which is useful for themselves or for the family members. So, here are some of the resources which provide you the best treatment programs.

  • SAMHSA,The Substance Abuse And Mental Health Services Administration is an organization which provides different types of services. It provides a location for different treatment centers and a separate site is maintained by it for giving the exact location of the outpatient, residential and the hospital treatment centers for the drug addicted people and also for the alcohol addicted people. The website is www.findtreatment.samhsa.gov
