i think there is like 10 steps or something
1. admitting they have a problem
2. finding higher power
3. giving yourself to higher power……..continues. this is most commonly used in rehabs but not the norm.

generally in rehab they give them drugs that reduce withdrawals only to a degree, eg with heroin they would give them methadone. with cocaine probably something similar. they also would have classes designed to teach them about addictions, what to do if they feel like they’re going to relapse and give them general motivation to stay off the drug planning them for when they get out. generally they’re in a relaxed environment with friendly people.
And no, they would not give them the actual drug they’re addicted to in rehab. sometimes, and in some rehabs they have no drugs at all.
