I am alcoholic and dependent on drugs, should I go to an alcohol and drug rehab center?

Hello Doctors, my name is (—) I am 29 years old and I am alcoholic and dependent on drugs. I use cocaine daily. And I am a very heavy drinker too. I won’t go into details but I can’t keep a job, have lost all my friends and my family has had pretty much enough of me. I need to stop drinking and doing cocaine and get my life together again. Can you please give me your opinion. How can I stop my addiction. Should I go to a drug and alcohol rehab center. I live in the USA. Are there any rehabilitation centers in the North East you can recommend. I really want a new beginning and put an end to my addiction or should I say addictions! What should I do? Thank you in advance.

  3. You can choose between an inpatient or outpatient rehab center. Outpatient programs will adapt a program to your individual needs. Some may involve daily 8-hour programs, others may only meet for 1 to 2 hours per day. Inpatient program rehabilitation centers require you stay there 24 hours a day and offer a number of treatments including individual counseling sessions, group therapy, life skills courses etc. An initial detox period is done then followed by a psychological support period.
