SAMHSA Releases Updated Directory of Treatment Programs

Cover of the National Directory of Drug and Alcohol Abuse Treatment Programs 2004SAMHSA recently announced the availability of the Agency's updated guide to finding local substance abuse treatment programs. The guide, National Directory of Drug and Alcohol Abuse Treatment Programs 2004, provides information on thousands of alcohol and drug treatment programs located in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and four U.S. territories.

"This directory is an essential link between those who are addicted to alcohol and drugs and the treatment they need to return to their families, jobs, and life in the community," said SAMHSA Administrator Charles G. Curie, M.A., A.C.S.W.

The 2004 directory is designed to provide information on levels of care and types of facilities, including those with programs for adolescents, persons with co-occurring substance abuse and mental disorders, individuals with HIV/AIDS, and pregnant women.

The directory identifies both long-term and short-term residential treatment facilities and facilities that provide beds for clients' children.

Substance Abuse Treatment Facility LocatorThe new directory can be used to provide quick-reference data for substance abuse and mental health hotlines, crisis centers, and emergency services; patient referral for hospitals, health care providers, drug courts, and social service agencies; and mental health and substance abuse planning at the community, state, and regional levels. The directory also includes information on types of services provided, type of payment accepted by each facility, whether special language services are provided for the hearing impaired or non-English speakers, and availability of programs for special populations.
