Updated guide to finding local substance abuse treatment programs is now available.

The guide, National Directory of Drug and Alcohol Abuse Treatment Programs 2007, provides information on thousands of alcohol and drug treatment programs located in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and four U.S. territories.


The directory includes public and private facilities that are licensed, certified, or otherwise approved by substance abuse agencies in each of the states. The directory is a nationwide inventory of substance abuse and alcoholism treatment programs and facilities that is organized and presented in a state-by-state format for quick-reference by health care providers, social workers, managed care organizations, and the general public. This latest SAMHSA directory provides a listing of more than 11,000 community substance abuse treatment programs.

The directory is designed to quickly provide the reader with important information on levels of care and types of facilities, including those with programs for adolescents, persons with co-occurring substance abuse and mental disorders, individuals living with HIV/AIDS, and pregnant women. In addition, the directory includes information on forms of payment accepted and special language services available with select providers.

The updated directory complements SAMHSA's internet-based Substance Abuse Treatment Facility Locator. The online service, which is updated regularly and may contain more current information, provides readers with searchable road maps to the nearest treatment facilities, complete addresses, phone numbers and specific information on services available.
