Never underestimate the resources your child’s school may offer, whether they’re in elementary, middle, high school or college – contact them.
SAMHSA Treatment Facility Locator. There are also addiction treatment center locators all over the Internet.

There are all kinds of resources to help you figure out whom to call to help your son find an addiction treatment center; it’s really a matter of finding the right one. When you’ve collected a list of treatment centers make sure you ask the following important questions:
- How will you help my son overcome his addiction?
- Will my son have a safe place to live while he’s in treatment?
- Will I be able to contact my son while he’s in treatment?
- Do you accept my insurance?
- How much is it going to cost? What are my payment options?
Make sure you let the treatment center know everything about your son’s drug abuse do not leave any detail out. The treatment center needs to know the extent of their use to assess their needs and create a specialized treatment plan. Keeping in mind what you’d like, what your son needs and what questions to ask are important to each phone call you make. This will make the phone calls much easier and less stressful on you and your son.
