STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- While there is no magic cure for drug addiction, there is one medication that's being used on
Colloquially referred to as “rehab”, most treatment programs include detoxification, group therapy, psycho-education, introduction to outside support groups (known as 12-step programs), and individual counseling.
There are various types of treatment for addictions, Traditional medical, holistic (Easter healing practices), spiritual (acknowledging a powerful force outside the body) and intellectual (learning to deal with addiction processes through professional literature).
If you or someone you know is trapped in an addiction, you may want to consider possible consultation with a medical doctor, counselor, psychiatrist, clery, or even another non-professional who has overcome the particular addiction (there are many types) in your area.
They may be able to share their experiences, direct you to an addiciton rehabilitation center, or seek more answers to common questions in our forums.
