There are many people who require help in fighting their drug or alcohol addiction.

A lot of people continue to think that they have to go to a specialty clinic that focuses specifically on the addiction that they have. While there certainly are centers that work solely with one type of addiction, the vast majority are happy to assist those with any type of addiction, whether it is alcohol, crystal meth, prescription painkillers, cannabis, crack cocaine, or heroin.
Some people continue to believe that they do not require any form of professional help to deal with their addiction. However, it is very rare for someone to be able to live a life of sobriety without at least some counseling and exposure to peers. That said, not everybody has to go to a 90-day inpatient residential facility either. Aurora is home to a number of high quality outpatient rehab centers, which are more convenient for those with mild addictions or personal, professional, or educational responsibilities that they cannot leave behind. However, in almost all cases, a period of medically assisted detox will be required. With some substances, including alcohol, detoxing can be very dangerous, even fatal, which is why it should never be tried without professional help. Managing withdrawal symptoms in a supportive environment with medical help makes it far more likely to be successful - and safer.
