Drugs & Alcohol
People who use alcohol and other drugs differ in many ways:
- How long they have used drugs
- The amount they use
- The extent of risk associated with their use
- Other health issues
- Social circumstances
- Personal resilience.
These are all important issues to take into account when considering treatment for alcohol and other drug use. It is important to choose the treatment that is right for you. You may need a combination or sequence of services and because people change, you may need a different mix of services at different times.
There are a number of different treatment options for alcohol and other drug problems. Your health professional should be able to help you out with information about what treatments work best and what treatment is right for you right now.
