Addiction treatment and rehabilitation are intended to help addicted individuals stop compulsive drug seeking and use. Treatment can occur in a variety of settings, take many different forms, and keep going for various time spans. Since drug addiction is typically a chronic disorder characterized by occasional relapses, a short-term, one-time treatment is usually not sufficient. For some, treatment is a long haul handle that includes different medications and customary checking. There are a variety of evidence-based approaches to treating addiction. Drug treatment can incorporate behavioral treatment, pharmaceuticals, or their mix. The particular kind of treatment or combination of treatments will vary depending on the patient’s individual needs and, often, on the types of drugs they use.
