Finding a Rehab in Alabama Near Me

Despite a growing population, there are still only about 150 drug and alcohol rehab centers in Alabama, which provide services for roughly 15,000 people at a time. The majority of which don’t offer inpatient treatment, but instead have some other variation of outpatient services.

Many treatment specialists feel that people with serious substance abuse problems have better results in a residential setting where they can focus more on their recovery, but this is often followed up with some additional outpatient services.
