Today we are presenting you the 7th chapter of EDU MAP’s reference handbook for substance abuse, dedicated to rehabilitation and addiction treatment options.
Is it possible to treat drug addiction?
Yes, but it is not easy. People cannot simply stop using drugs because addiction is a chronic disease. Most patients require long-term or repeated care to completely stop using drugs and regain their health.
Addiction treatment must assist the individual by doing the following:
- Refrain from using drugs, and
- Staying drug-free and productive in your family, workplace, and social life.
