Addictions have multiple faces and variations. A person dealing with an addiction has much in common with other addicts, yet she will also have some unique features that are hers alone. For that reason, treatments for addictions have many commonalities, but there are also treatments for those with different needs, philosophies, and lifestyles. Some of these treatments have received more support from the professional community than others. Nevertheless, the addicted person and her family can research the options, obtain professional consultation, and decide what will work best in her situation.
