Choosing a rehabilitation center that is best suited for your particular needs can be a confusing process, but the decision can be easier if you research the various methods and programs available. This can be one of the most important decisions of your life and it should be based on facts regarding the best treatment available, plus a strong commitment from you to remain in the program for as long as it takes to achieve complete recovery.
Rehabilitation centers vary in their approaches to treatment, but there are some specific points to consider when choosing a rehabilitation center for your unique situation. First, you should know what kind of center it is, whether outpatient, inpatient or residential. If you are unsure which program you need, call and speak with a counselor that can assess your situation and recommend a treatment program based on the extent of your addiction and the substance being abused.
Although successful results have been obtained during outpatient treatment, this method is basically for those individuals who are still functional in daily responsibilities or have not suffered severe or life-altering consequences. If your addiction has caused serious physical health problems, financial hardships, violent behavior, or legal issues, inpatient or residential treatment is best suited for you because it removes you from the stresses and temptations of day-to-day life and this safe environment allows you focus on the reasons why you use drugs or alcohol and provides the education and tools you will need to overcome these factors.
Other points to consider when choosing a rehabilitation center include whether protocols are available for faith-based therapy, holistic approaches to therapy, family support services or continuing care programs. Also, you should obtain information regarding costs or insurance requirements, and success rates of the program.
