SAMHSA defines treatment as “a path of recovery that can involve many interventions and attempts at abstinence. It is offered in different settings, and types of treatment greatly depend on the substances misused, as well as a person’s individual needs and characteristics. Treatment is offered in residential and outpatient programs and can include counseling or other behavioral therapy, family therapy, medication, or a combination of services.”
