Types of treatment

A number of different treatment options exist. These differ in their aims and methods. Some aim for the user to achieve a drug-free lifestyle while others aim to stabilise the drug user at a reduced, safer level of use. Some employ individual counselling techniques, others use group therapy, while still others use chemical agents to assist with withdrawal or maintenance.
