Getting help can be scary, please don't do it alone!

Signs of Quality Treatment

  • Licensed and accredited. All facilities in are licensed by the state they're in.

  • Medication. A facility should only use FDA-approved medication in treating alcohol or opioid use. There are no FDA-approved medications to help prevent relapse from other problem substances.

  • Evidence-based practices. Quality programs should offer a full range of services that are accepted as effective in treatment and recovery, including:

    • Motivational therapy

    • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)

    • Drug and alcohol counseling and education

    • Peer support

    • Care for or help accessing care for other physical and mental health needs.

  • Families. Family Members should be included in the treatment process. They have an important role in understanding the impact of addiction and being supportive in recovery.

  • Support beyond substance use. For many, addiction is a chronic disease that needs ongoing support. A quality program treats the whole patient for the long term. This can include ongoing counseling or recovery coaching, and help meeting basic needs like sober housing, employment support, and continued family involvement.


The ASAM Criteria’s strength-based multidimensional assessment takes into account a patient's needs, obstacles and liabilities, as well as their strengths, assets, resources, and support structure. This information is used to determine the appropriate level of care across a continuum.
