People do not respond the same way to any one particular treatment approach in any particular setting. Some need more intensive and/or extensive treatment than others. It is not unusual for a person with a severe SUD to engage in several episodes of treatment before sustaining recovery. For those who are physically addicted, medical detoxification may be needed before they can benefit from other types of treatment. Treatment is helpful only to the extent that a person sticks with it and uses the guidance of professionals and peers in recovery. The person with an SUD may use any combination of treatment programs, services, or community recovery supports. Treatment includes detoxification; rehabilitation; individual, group, and family therapy; other services (case management, vocational or leisure counseling, medical evaluation); and medications.
