They can call their nearest outpatient program. A counselor from the program will meet with them to do an assessment and set up a treatment plan. This could be treatment as an outpatient or a referral to a different service that would best meet their needs such as a residential rehab program. If they have insurance, they should start by calling the insurance company to find out how to proceed.
