Drug abuse treatment occurs in a multitude of forms. It may be provided in outpatient or inpatient settings, be publicly or privately funded, and mayor may not involve the administration of medication. The differences among the philosophies of, and the services provided in, various drug abuse treatment programmes may be enormous. What is remarkable is that some form of drug abuse counselling or psychotherapy is almost invariably a part of every type of comprehensive drug abuse treatment. Individual therapy or counselling is available in about 99% of the drug-free, methadone-maintenance, and multiple-modality drug abuse treatment units in this country (National Drug and Alcoholism Treatment Unit Survey 1982). It is also available in approximately 97% of the detoxification units.
