Choosing Drug Rehab Facilities

Drug Rehab Facilities

There are factors to consider when choosing drug rehab facilities.

The decision to seek help for a drug or alcohol addiction can be both daunting and frightening at the same time.  On one side, you want to get the help and support you need but on the other, you may not know exactly how to choose between the many drug rehab facilities that are available to provide you with treatment.  Drug rehab facilities come in many shapes, sizes and structures to meet the very diverse needs of those addicted to a range of drugs and choosing the right drug rehab facility for your needs is crucial to your recovery success.

Factors to Consider when Choosing Drug Rehab Facilities

There are many different factors that you will need to consider when choosing between the many different rehabilitation options that are available to you.  The most common factors that you will look at include:

  • Length of the Program – Most programs are for a period of at least 28 days but longer treatment programs tend to be more effective and have a higher success rat
  • Methods of Treatment – There are many different types of treatment offered at drug rehab facilities on both an inpatient and outpatient basis (inpatient programs tend to be reserved for more difficult to treat addictions and for those who suffer from dual diagnosis or who have tried outpatient treatment and have had no success)
  • Services Offered – Drug rehab facilities provide various services including intervention, detox, counseling, therapy and aftercare.  Look for a facility that will provide you with all of the services you need
  • Follow Up Programs – It’s important to seek a drug rehab facility that will provide follow up services to assist you in staying on the right track to recovery
  • Location – Choosing drug rehab facilities that are close to home allow you to receive visits from family but sometimes, location is best to be further away to prevent distraction
  • Success Rate – Drug rehab facilities should have no problem discussing their success rate with you.  Keep in mind that relapse is very common in drug rehab but over time success rates should improve
  • Price- Drug rehab facilities have various costs and the pricing can be very different from one facility to the next.  Find out if the facility you choose is within your budget, whether they accept insurance and make sure you can afford the treatment so that you can focus on your recovery and not so much on how you will pay for the care.

Choosing drug rehab facilities can be a difficult process but if you make phone calls, talk with the individual in charge of each facility and take notes you can narrow down a program that is affordable, successful and located nearby.  The next step is to begin the treatment process by which you will gain education, support and care to make a full recovery from addiction.
