When left untreated, substance abuse can lead to numerous problems, including job loss, financial distress, impaired relationships, health problems, and death. Further, many people who struggle with a substance use disorder also experience worsening of existing mental health disorders. In fact, up to 50% of people who require a recovery program for a substance use disorder also struggle with a mental illness.
Here at Live Free Recovery, in New Hampshire, we specialize in treating chronic alcohol and drug addiction through different addiction treatment services. These programs focus on ending substance use while addressing what caused the individual to turn to drugs or alcohol in the first place. The addiction treatment services that we use to treat addiction include partial hospitalization programs, intensive outpatient programs, traditional outpatient treatment programs, and sober living programs.
Together, these three addiction treatment programs make a full continuum of care. This is because partial hospitalization program treatment offers the intensity and structure of inpatient treatment but at much more affordable prices.

Alcohol Addiction Treatment
Addiction to alcohol is characterized by excessive drinking of alcohol causing chemical changes to one’s brain. People who are addicted to alcohol engage in compulsive drinking, experience a loss of control over the amount they intake, and enter a negative emotional state when there is no alcohol available.
Alcohol use disorder (AUD) can be mild to severe and includes conditions that are referred to as alcohol abuse, alcohol dependence, or alcoholism. People that suffer from an AUD exhibit extremely risky behavior, as they become willing to do almost anything to get their hands on some more alcohol. This is especially true when people that suffer from an AUD experience alcohol withdrawal symptoms.
People who are unable to stop abusing alcohol require alcohol rehab at a treatment facility. If you or someone you love is struggling with abusing alcohol it’s important to get help as soon as possible. At Live Free Recovery, in New Hampshire, our alcohol use disorder program includes detox, individual and group therapy, and aftercare planning. With our help, you can begin the recovery process that ends the cycle of alcohol abuse.
Everyone that suffers from alcohol use disorder will experience withdrawal symptoms when they first minimize or discontinue their consumption of alcohol. This is because prior to developing their addiction, all individuals develop alcohol dependence, which is characterized by the experience of highly uncomfortable alcohol withdrawal symptoms whenever alcohol consumption is minimized or stopped.
Because we know that alcohol is one of, if not the most, commonly abused substances, we understand the necessity of alcohol use disorder treatment. That’s why we here at Live Free Recovery, in New Hampshire, have made alcohol use disorder one of the illnesses that we treat.
Because of how addictive alcohol is, people should detox from it at medical detox facilities. This is because only medical detox facilities contain doctors and medical staff on standby 24/7 to provide detox patients with prescription medications to help them manage their alcohol withdrawal symptoms to prevent relapse. Common prescription medications used to treat alcohol withdrawal include the following:
- Chlordiazepoxide (Ex. Librium)
- Clorazepate (Ex. Tranxene)
- Diazepam (Ex. Valium)
- Oxazepam (Ex. Serax)
- Carbamazepine ( Ex. Tegretol)
- Gabapentin (Ex. Neurontin)
- Oxcarbazepine (Ex. Trileptal)
- Valproic Acid (Ex. Depakene)
- Disulfiram ( Antabuse)
- Naltrexone ( Vivitrol and Revia)
- Acamprosate (Campral)
Drug Addiction Treatment
Similar to alcoholism, drug addiction is characterized by the experience of chemical changes occurring in one’s brain. Drug addiction is also characterized by the inability to stop using drugs even though one desires to. People that suffer from drug addiction are often willing to do anything to get more drugs. This includes lying, cheating, and stealing.
People that suffer from drug addiction also exhibit risky behavior to get more drugs because they too are trying to avoid experiencing withdrawal symptoms. This is because whenever a person with drug dependency and addiction minimizes or discontinues using drugs, he or she experiences withdrawal symptoms.
There is a wide variety of drugs that people often abuse. To ensure that we at Live Free Recovery, help treat any drug addiction that you suffer from, we provide overall drug addiction treatment services at our treatment center in New Hampshire.
Heroin Addiction Treatment
Heroin is considered to be one of the most addictive illicit substances. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), 6% of people who abuse opioids will switch to heroin. This is because it is a cheaper and more easily accessible option for those with an opioid use disorder.

We understand how difficult it can be to overcome this disease, and we are here to help you every step of the way. Our comprehensive heroin addiction treatment program includes detoxification, individual and group therapy, medication-assisted treatment, and aftercare.

Benzodiazepines—also known as benzos—are a type of prescription medication used to treat anxiety, panic disorders, and seizures. Examples of common benzodiazepines include Xanax, Ativan, and Valium. While benzos can be effective in treating these conditions when taken as prescribed, they are also highly addictive.
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), about 30% of people who misuse benzos develop an addiction. If you or someone you love is struggling with benzodiazepine addiction, it’s important to seek professional help. Benzodiazepine withdrawal can be dangerous, and even fatal.

Methamphetamine Addiction Treatment
Methamphetamine, also known as meth, is a highly addictive stimulant. Meth addiction often leads to serious health problems regarding both mental health and physical health, including heart damage, stroke, and memory loss.
According to a study by the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, around 1.1 million Americans are struggling with methamphetamine use. These individuals experience intense cravings for the drug and physical withdrawal when they stop using, which can make it difficult to quit without the help of a treatment center.
At Live Free Recovery, in New Hampshire, our comprehensive methamphetamine substance abuse treatment program includes detox, individual and behavioral therapy, and aftercare planning. Our team of compassionate and experienced addiction professionals will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan that meets your unique needs.

During detox at our addiction treatment center, our team will provide medical monitoring and support to help you through the withdrawal process as safely and comfortably as possible. Withdrawal symptoms can include fatigue, depression, anxiety, and intense cravings for the drug.
While not every drug detox will require medication-assisted treatment, many do. This is especially true when it comes to detoxing from opioids. Common prescription withdrawal medications that people may use during drug detox include the following:
