Drug and Alcohol Rehab: Choosing A Facility

14,000 Drug and Alcohol Rehabs in the U.S.

You’re at a crossroads. The wreckage has become  substantial. The problem has become bigger than everyone. and something’s gotta change but nobody’s got the answers. Perhaps treatment is in order,  but it’s all a confusing mess.Most  have tried various means to stop the addiction – abstinence by willpower (which rarely works), Antibuse, AA meetings, psychotherapy, church groups, changing jobs or living situations –  but those methods are of  little or no use to those whose addictions are fully entrenched.  In fact, may cause even more frustration, denial and hopelessness since the addict wants to cling to the idea he has some control, when in fact physiologically,  he does not.The next logical step, then, would be to think about entering treatment. Finding the proper treatment can be a challenge in itself, considering there are so many different types of facilities to choose from. Plus, as each individual is unique, so should their treatment be if it is to be successful.

Where to Start in Choosing an Addiction Treatment Center

Once one is willing to accept treatment (the hardest part of the process) many things will determine the right place. Does the addict need long or short term help? If the addict is an adolescent, he would be better served with a model that takes that into consideration. On the other hand, you wouldn’t want to send Grandma to a  place where residents are comparing designer jeans and looking forward to volleyball during break.Will this be the  first time in treatment, or is something more substantial needed for a chronic relapser? Is the addict on medication for physical or mental health reasons? Are there children or work issues to be addressed? And of course, insurance and financial constraints also enter into the mix. Should I stay near home, or travel? These issues alone can be overwhelming to someone trying to decide what’s the best course.

Working with a professional to help guide you in choosing

With all these factors to consider, it would be frustrating at best to figure it out alone, so the help of a professional who has knowledge of and access to the many types of facilities all over the country can be invaluable. Individualized treatment plans would first take into account one’s age and type of addiction, as some addictions require medical detoxing while others do not (there are actually some withdrawals that can be dangerous without a physicians care, such as in late stage alcoholism or barbiturates).Those in earlier stages of addictions may not even need to detox, but need a more intense behavioral focus.  Some with have mental health diagnosis as well as addictions need a place that will address both.  Determining length of treatment is another personal aspect.While long-term treatment has proven to be most successful, it’s not necessarily an option if one has family or career constraints. Lastly, there are personal preferences and cost. Financial considerations should never inhibit one from seeking help.
