What Types of Addictions Can Be Addressed?

The National Referral Center provides resources for recovery from all types of addictions. Chemical dependencies may include alcoholism, heroin addiction, cocaine addiction, prescription drug abuse, methamphetamine, marijuana or any other substance that has a negative effect on the user’s health and wellbeing.

Behavioral addictions may include eating disorders such as bulimia and anorexia, exercise addiction, gambling addiction, sex addiction, Internet addiction, pornography addiction or other types of compulsive behaviors that have a negative impact on a person’s work, family and relationships, or threaten the person’s health.

Selecting the Best Treatment Option for Addictions

There are many factors that must be taken into account when choosing a treatment facility or recovery program.

  • Type and Nature of Addiction
    There are vast differences between treating a behavioral addiction and a chemical dependency. Additionally, treatment varies according to the different types of substances that may be abused. Each requires specialized knowledge, and the best treatment is likely to be available at a facility that is focused on that particular addiction.


  • Financial Considerations
    Our counselors are sensitive to the financial pressures that come into play when selecting a recovery option. If your budget is very limited, we can help you find free or low-cost programs, often funded by government agencies. We can also refer you to self-help options in your area.


  • Residential vs. Outpatient Options
    Because of their high overhead, residential treatment facilities are generally quite expensive. We can refer you to programs that have short, low-cost residencies or to those that operate primarily on an outpatient basis.


  • Treatment Model
    Treatment for addictions can follow any of several models. While the twelve-step program is most commonly employed, it isn’t the best choice for everyone. You might benefit more from a holistic approach, which is frequently best for behavioral addictions or substance abuse that doesn’t require extensive detox. More advanced cases of chemical addiction, such as heroin or meth addictions, may require a medical model with supervised detox facilities.


These are just a few of the many decisions that need to be made. The highly skilled counselors here at the National Referral Center can help you negotiate this difficult process.

We also offer other services, ranging from a database of treatment programs to legal services to our Sober Concierge program, which provides a trained companion to help ease the difficult transition from treatment facility to sober living. Call us today to see how we can help you.
