Non-twelve-step drug treatment centers can be found throughout the state of Virginia. Drug rehab facilities are located within the various counties throughout the state, but families and addicts can access any of the services available. It is best to take measures to ensure a relapse does not occur, but if a relapse does happen, it normally will occur within the first month a former addict is out of drug treatment. During that time, it is important that a recovering addict attends some type of aftercare program, which can help them make a gradual transition back into society.

This was 15 years ago. Since then, Marcel has built two of the largest websites in the U.S. and Canada which reach and help millions of people each year. He is an author and a leader in the field of drug and alcohol addiction. His main focus is threefold: education, prevention and rehabilitation.
