More treatment facilities are offering specialized treatment programs for women, men and other specific demographic groups in order to serve their unique needs. This peer support strategy can offer better rates of success in overcoming alcohol and drug addiction.

Family gatherings, the availability of alcohol at parties and re-connecting with people who may be associated with substance use can present challenges for someone celebrating Thanksgiving in recovery.

It’s not just a matter of abstaining from drugs or alcohol; it’s helping people to get in touch with their inner selves so they can explore what led them down the path to addiction in the first place. Customized treatment plans help each individual better understand their behavior patterns and thought processes. Once they do, they can deal with the factors behind the abuse of drugs or alcohol and use this knowledge to prevent a future relapse.
