Addiction Treatment In Norwell

Two-thirds of Norwell residents who received treatment for substance use disorders between 2017 and 2018 were employed, and over half had never received treatment before. They sought help for alcohol, heroin, and cocaine use.

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), drug and/or alcohol treatment plans should respond to individual needs. Addiction treatment has the best chance of long-term positive results when your substance use history and other health and family needs are incorporated in planning.
