One of the first steps involved in the process of getting help is obtaining a comprehensive substance use evaluation with a trained professional. This involves the individual, and possibly family member(s) taking part in an interview to determine the best form of treatment for the individual.
A person who is interested in obtaining a substance use evaluation for him or herself or a loved one is encouraged to contact his or her insurance company. For a listing of agencies that provide substance use evaluations and a description of different types of available treatment options please check out our treatment section.
Treatment options are available for individuals who do or do not have health insurance. If you need assistance in finding a treatment provider or funding for addiction treatment, please call 1-800-662-HELP (4357).
