Center for Substance Abuse Treatment

The Center for Substance Abuse Treatment is part of the United States Department for Health and Human Services. CSAT promote the quality and availability of community-based substance abuse treatment services. CSAT also supports free treatment referral service to link people with the community-based substance abuse services they need.

The treatment locator includes more than 11,000 addiction treatment programs, including residential treatment centers, outpatient treatment programs, and hospital inpatient programs for drug addiction and alcoholism. Listings include treatment programs for marijuana, cocaine, and heroin addiction, as well as drug and alcohol treatment programs for adolescents, and adults.

CSAT offers a list of questions to find answers to when looking for a rehab center, including:

  • Is the program run by state-accredited, licensed and/or trained professionals?
  • Is long-term aftercare support and/or guidance encouraged, provided and maintained?
  • Is there ongoing monitoring of possible relapse to help guide patients back to abstinence?
  • I think it also makes sense to learn about the success of those using the center and how the rehab center’s treatment matches your needs.
