Treatment Updates Include Directory, Facility Locator

SAMHSA's updated guide, the National Directory of Drug and Alcohol Abuse Treatment Programs 2005, provides information on thousands of alcohol and drug treatment programs located in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and four U.S. territories.

The directory is a nationwide inventory of substance abuse and alcoholism treatment programs and facilities that is organized and presented in a state-by-state format for quick reference by health care providers, social workers, managed care organizations, and the general public.

The Agency also updated the online Treatment Facility Locator available on the SAMHSA Web site. The locator is a searchable database of addiction treatment programs around the country. To help users, SAMHSA's Office of Applied Studies (OAS) recently released a short report, Using the Substance Abuse Treatment Facility Locator, a detailed set of instructions on how to search.

The locator's Web site also includes a list of state substance abuse agencies, contact information for those agencies, and links to their Web sites. In addition, a link is provided to SAMHSA's Buprenorphine Physician Locator, which identifies physicians—by ZIP code, city, county, or state—who are authorized to prescribe buprenorphine.

To access SAMHSA's Treatment Facility Locator, visit SAMHSA's Web site at http://findtreatment.samhsa.gov.

Box 2345, Rockville, MD 20847-2345. Telephone: 1 (800) 729-6686 or 1 (866) 889-2647 (TTY). The short report is also available online at www.oas.samhsa.govEnd of Article
