Addiction; information on withdrawal treatment.

People suffering from alcohol, medication or drug addiction can be treated.


Withdrawal treatment is the first indispensable step toward a life free of addictive substances. It takes place in Bavaria in general care hospitals of all care levels, (district) hospitals and in university hospitals. Detoxification is offered according to different concepts ( e.g. withdrawal with strong motivational components). Detoxification falls under acute treatment. The costs are therefore covered by the providers of the statutory health insurance. Further information on the therapy chain for addictive disorders can be found on the website of the Deutsche Hauptstelle für Suchtfragen (DHS) (see "Further links").

An overview of the addiction support facilities available in Bavaria can be found at the Koordinierungsstelle der bayerischen Suchthilfe (KBS) (see "Further links").

Please bring the necessary documents to the therapy in consultation with the counseling center and detoxification facility.


Clarification of insurance-related issues by the selected addiction counseling center or, if applicable, the referring physician or hospital.
