The Rehab Locator

If you are interested in locating alcoholism and drug abuse treatment centers, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, has a website that contains a "Substance Abuse Treatment Facility Locator."


All you have to do is click on the location where you live and you will be taken to a page that asks you to enter the city, state, and searching radius information, and this facilities search tool will produce a number of substance abuse facilities within the searching radius and the city and state you entered.

The following information will be provided for each facility:

  • Primary Focus of Treatment (for instance mental health or substance abuse services).

  • Services Provided (for example, substance abuse treatment).

  • Type of Care (in-patient or outpatient.

  • Special Programs/Groups (for instance, pregnant/postpartum women, persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders, DUI/DWI offenders, etc.).

  • Forms of Payment Accepted (for example, self payment, Medicaid, or Medicare).

  • Payment Assistance (Please check with the facility for details).

  • Special Language Services (for instance, ASL or other assistance for the hearing impaired).

The SAMHSA "Substance Abuse Treatment Services Locator" can be found here.
