Are Addiction Treatments Effective?

Question by annalise is: Are addiction treatments effective?
What does this do? I have an acquaintance who is about to go through this, and I want to know what difference it will make. Does this really work?

Best answer:

Answer by aisha t
The goal of addiction treatments, aside from getting the patient to go into abstinence, is to bring back his productivity, be it in the workplace, community, or family. Research has it that drug addiction treatment significantly decreases the usage of drugs and reduces criminal activity. It also paves the way to the reduction of the risk of HIV infection, as well as other diseases. Undergoing treatment also improves one’s chances of getting employment.

However, the success of these programs still relies greatly on the individual. Your acquaintance will have to actively engage in the treatment and have the determination to change in order to be able to recover more quickly.
