Substance Abuse and Addiction Treatment Resources in Freeport

Freeport Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

Substance abuse is causing an epidemic in America. Every day, there are 91 opioid overdoses that lead to death. Drug and alcohol addiction is destroying the lives of individuals and tearing families and entire communities apart. Illegal substances like heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, ecstasy and bath salts are doing a lot of damage in the lives of many people, but legal substances like alcohol and prescription medications that have been misused are also doing a lot of damage.

The town of Freeport, Maine is no exception to this. Many residents of Freeport are in need of treatment for substance use disorder. However, there is such a stigma against those who suffer from addiction that those who need treatment sometimes do not seek it. If you are suffering, you don’t need to suffer any longer. Help is available to those who are willing to ask for it in the form of rehabilitation centers.
