Drug and alcohol abuse are a very common problem, especially in more urban areas of the country. This why there are so many drug rehabilitation centers in the New England and Mid-Atlantic regions of the United States. In Worcester, Massachusetts, there is a drug rehabilitation center that has received recognition from a number of government agencies; it's name is Passages.

Passages is a drug treatment center that focuses on dual diagnosis work, since almost every case of substance abuse has some sort of mental health problem linked to it as well. The most common include depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, and bipolar disorder, among others. Because of their focus on those with dual diagnoses, Passages has counselors on hand who know how to deal with both ends of the spectrum when it comes to those sorts of issues. If the mental health issue is treated appropriately, then it is more likely that the patient will be able to overcome their substance abuse problems.

There are a number of specialized programs available at Passages as well. They know that people who struggle with substance abuse have other issues in their lives as well. For example, a number of people who do certain drugs will also be HIV or AIDS positive, and those people have a certain set of needs that need to be taken care of. There may also be women there who are either pregnant or they have recently had a child, and they also have special needs. Passages have programs for those people as well, and they even have groups that are gender specific so that the focus can be on the special needs of men or women, depending on the group.

The last program that we will explore here is the MISSION program for Veterans. MISSION (Maintaining Independence and Sobriety through Systems Integration, Outreach, and Networking) focuses on making sure that those Veterans who are struggling with dual diagnoses get the help they need. Most of these Vets are incarcerated for one reason or another. This program is exclusive to Massachusetts, but if you are a Veteran from another state, you may be able to see what they can do for you as well.

Payment is a concern for many people who are looking to get help for their addictions. There are actually a number of payment assistance programs available; if you aren?t sure you can pay, you can talk about it with the professionals at the office. They have a sliding scale for those who have to pay out of pocket. They also accept most state sponsored, federal sponsored, and private health insurances. They do this so that you don't have to worry about the financial end; instead, you can just focus on overcoming your addictions.

Do you struggle with drug or alcohol addiction? You are not alone, and admitting that you have a problem is the first step toward your recovery. What's the next? Call your local rehabilitation center, whether it is Passages or another local center, and see what you need to do in order to get the help that you need. They will work with you to deal with the financial end; you need to be more concerned about the healing that you need to experience. You can break free from the chains of addiction.
