After deciding that you need a rehab center, you are faced with yet another major decision. This decision is which rehab would be best for you. You cannot just pick a rehab at random and expect it to work perfectly for you.
Choosing the right rehab takes some time and consideration. You will need to know where you want to go, what type of rehab that you want, and what to ask once you narrow down your search. Fortunately, there is a resource that will help you with this complex decision. Addictions.com has a huge database of rehabs across the country. We can help you find the right rehab for you.
Location, Location, Location
Although it might not seem like it, location matters. If you prefer cooler climates then a northern rehab might be right for you. If you freeze when it drops below 60, one of the Florida rehab centers might be preferable.
You will go through withdrawal, a period of mental and physical illness while your body rids itself of the drug. Having a climate that you like will help you be less uncomfortable and with hundreds of rehab centers all over the country, you can choose the climate that you like.
Inpatient or Outpatient Rehab
You have a choice of either completing your treatment in an inpatient setting or an outpatient setting. Inpatient is residential care where you stay at the rehab 24 hours a day. They provide you with everything that you need while you are there. Outpatient rehab is a nonresidential program where you go to the rehab daily, weekly, or monthly and then return home. Outpatient care is good when you have children or family you need to care for at home.
Questions to Ask After you Find a Location and Type
Choosing a rehab does not end with just choosing where the rehab is and what type of rehab you want. Once you narrow your search down a bit, you have to know which questions to ask. Some good questions are:
- Which programs do you offer?
- Have you dealt with my addiction before?
- Are your treatment approaches backed by science?
- What amenities do you offer?
- Can you offer personalized treatment plans?
- Do you follow the Principles of Addiction Treatment?
- What is your patient to staff ration?
There are many more questions that you could ask, these are just a few. Before you talk to a rehab or sign up for treatment, you should write down all of the things that you want out of a rehab and all the questions that you have. This way you can be sure to cover everything you want to know.
