Treatment Program Directory Updated
National Directory of Drug and Alcohol Abuse Treatment Programs 2010 was recently updated by SAMHSA. Organized in a state-by-state format, the directory provides up-to-date information on more than 11,000 alcohol and drug treatment programs located in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and 4 U.S. territories.
Important information on levels of care and types of facilities includes those with programs for adolescents, persons with co-occurring substance abuse and mental disorders, individuals living with HIV/AIDS, and pregnant women.
In addition, information is available on forms of payment accepted, special language services available with select providers, and whether methadone or buprenorphine therapy is offered.
The print directory complements SAMHSA’s Internet-based Substance Abuse Treatment Facility Locator, which is updated regularly and may contain more current information. It provides searchable road maps to the nearest treatment facilities, complete addresses, phone numbers, and specific information on services available.
Limited copies of the print 2010 directory are available by calling 1-877-SAMHSA-7 (726-4727). Ask for publication number SMA10-4553. Visit SAMHSA’s online treatment facility locator.
