In brief: Many Options

To Help Treat Addictive Disorders: Community Supports (Recovery Centers or 12-Step Meetings), Individual Counselor or Agencies Licensed in Addictions Counseling, Psychologist/Psychiatrist, Individual and/or Group Psychotherapy, Intensive Outpatient Programs (Eve/Day), Inpatient/Residential Treatment (14-30+ days), Hospital Detox.
Any combination of these. Help is available - addiction is treatable
