If you, or someone you love, is struggling with addiction, treatment is one of the best chances for recovery. But choosing the best program can be a difficult decision, and researching the numerous treatment options can quickly become overwhelming. Read on for some of our favorite tips on how to pick the right treatment program for your situation.
Researching Drug and Alcohol Treatment Programs Online
Research each center’s treatment options and costs. At this stage, each person’s situation will differ because of factors like mental health, desired treatments and time needed in the facility. It is important to note any licenses and certifications possessed by each facility. If one has a lot of great reviews but is not certified, this facility should be avoided.
Also consider the program’s mental health treatment options. Like addiction, mental health is unique to each person, so it is important to find a facility that is equipped to handle your specific situation, otherwise, a client can end up in a facility that does not meet their specific care requirements, making recovery much more difficult.
Touring Drug and Alcohol Treatment Programs in Person
Once you have narrowed down your list, you should schedule a tour. It’s never a bad idea to get an in-person look before making a final decision. Call the center and set up a tour. Take note of how well your interaction with reception goes. If they are rude or disorganized right from the start, you should cross that center off the list.
Once you embark on the tour, take note of the facility’s cleanliness, organization and especially the attitudes of staff. Is the staff polite and knowledgeable? These are all important things to take into consideration because when a person first enters the facility they are at their most vulnerable and should be left in good hands.
Also, take the opportunity to discuss insurance options with a staff member. Most insurance plans cover addiction treatments, and many facilities are willing to work with patients to ensure they receive the care they need while being covered by insurance. Ignoring this task can generate some unexpected costs, so make sure you do your research.
Remember, no matter how hard things get, you are making the right decision, and the right research is necessary to maximize your chances for recovery.
