There are treatment facilities or rehabilitation centers everywhere. Most have developed systems designed to help those with substance abuse issues. They have a team of psychiatrists, physicians, nurses, and therapists who provide their expertise. They asses the patients and work out the best treatment methods for them. However, another invaluable component of the treatment process is the compassion and understanding we can show our friend or family member with drug problem. They should not go at it alone. The support we can give them, the encouragement and comfort will help them as much.
