What types of treatment are available in Arkansas?

Arkansas rehab facilities are equipped to help with multiple addiction types including alcohol addiction, stimulant addiction (such as cocaine, crack, and meth), opioid addiction (such as heroin, fentanyl, and prescription painkillers), and behavioral addictions such as porn, gambling, and internet addiction. 

Addiction treatment will often involve either a stay in a residential facility or an outpatient treatment program and Arkansas has many payment options (including Medicaid) to support the financial obligation of treatment. In addition, there are free and or state-funded rehabs that offer evidence-based treatment for those who do not have access to addiction treatment payment. 

There are also a range of counselling and therapy options available in Arkansas that can help with addiction, as well as support groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous or SMART Recovery.
