We support delivery of these proven strategies with a close eye on both quality of delivery and evidence of effectiveness.

You don’t have to want drug treatment for it to be effective.  Virtually no one wants drug treatment. Two of the primary reasons people seek drug treatment are because the court ordered them to do so, or because loved ones urged them to seek treatment. Many scientific studies have shown convincingly that those who enter drug treatment programs in which they face "high pressure" to confront and attempt to overcome their addiction do comparatively better in treatment, regardless of the reason they sought treatment in the first place.
