There are 6 options for your adult child


Maybe your child doesn’t know about their options and needs to learn how much their family cares about them and won’t enable their addiction any longer.


For those people on hard drugs, a medically supervised detox is an important start to any recovery program, and is usually followed by inpatient treatment.


Also called residential treatment, stays can range from two weeks to three months. Your child is in a safe place, getting round-the-clock care, group and individual therapy, and more.


Sometimes used alone and sometimes following an inpatient stay, outpatient treatment is often a day or a night program, several days a week, with individual and group therapy sessions.


Look for treatment that offers a lifetime of aftercare. Addiction is a disease that can be managed with treatment, but it never goes away.
