Elite Rehab Placement works with a wide range of drug and alcohol rehab facilities to make sure that you, or your loved one, receives the proper treatment based on individual needs, financial situation, insurance plan, and a number of other factors.
Doing this research on your own is difficult as you don’t always know the right questions to ask and don’t know if your being told the truth or just talking to a really good salesman. Fortunately, we’ve done all of the homework for you.
We have an in depth knowledge of all of the treatment centers that we work with and will not place clients in a rehab center that is not right for them.
Find the Best Alcohol and Drug Addiction Facilities
For you or your loved one, admitting to a substance abuse problem, an alcohol or drug dependency, maybe an addiction, was incredibly hard and brave. Don’t give up now just because the next step, trying to find the right treatment center, doesn’t seem any easier.
It is a sad-but-true fact that it is much easier to find alcohol or drugs than to find an effective and available substance abuse treatment facility – the number of addicts is increasing far more rapidly than the number of beds in a treatment facility – but it is worth it. Help is available.
Insurance often covers at least some of the cost at many rehabs, but there are many other factors. You may not even half the things you need to consider. Fortunately there is experienced help with connections to insurance providers and drug rehabs around the country. Elite Rehab Placement can help you find the recovery facility you need.
Outpatient or Inpatient Alcohol and Drug Addiction Rehab Treatment Facilities?
At the most basic, you must choose between outpatient facilities – where you visit the facility for therapy and other treatments during the day or evening but go home afterwards – and inpatient facilities where you stay for the duration – one week, one month, 90 days – of your treatment.
Outpatient Alcohol and Drug Addiction Rehab Treatment Facilities
The benefits of outpatient facilities is that your life is disrupted as little as possible:
You may continue to attend school or work your job.
Outpatient facilities also are less expensive since beds, baths and 24-hour security aren’t provided.
The disadvantage is that the more you remain in your old life, the one in which you are someone who abused drugs, the more exposed you are to temptations, associations and other trigger cues. You also will face these temptations without the around-the-clock medical and psychological support network available in rehab centers.
Inpatient Alcohol and Drug Addiction Rehab Treatment Facilities
The advantage of inpatient rehab facilities is that you are more closely monitored, so you have :
- Fewer distractions or triggers from your old life – addict friends, work or school stress
- Fewer opportunities to relapse, to backslide
- More time for therapy, physical rehab
The disadvantage is that, since you’re so protected, you don’t have any idea how well you will face temptation and triggers when you do return to the real world. Rehabs are protective, artificial environments. You probably can’t and don’t want to live there forever.
Despite this, if you have the wherewithal, inpatient rehabs are the way to go. If you choose to follow that path, then there are still many decisions ahead of you.
What to Look for in Inpatient Alcohol and Drug Addiction Rehab Treatment Facilities
Before you decide on an inpatient rehab facility, there are some basic precautions to take. Not every substance abuse facility is created equal, or even legitimate. Some are scams. Some are little more than a place to hide from the authorities, offering little in the way of treatment or rehab. Some don’t have the resources you may need to maintain your sobriety once you leave the facility. When looking at inpatient facilities, be sure to check these essential items
Essentials of Rehabs
On-Site Detox Centers: The first step in most Alcohol and Drug Addiction Rehab Treatment Facilities is detox, cleansing the body of intoxicants over time, but not all rehabs have the facilities to do this on-site. For continuity of care, you may wish to look for a rehab facility that does.
Some clients are not in need of a full detox treatment when checking in to rehab, but others are. For those that are, we work with a variety of rehab centers that offer both on site and off site detox to clients.
Addiction treatment is a specialized field and discipline. Not every doctor, psychologist or counselor is qualified. Both the rehabs and the rehabs’ staff need special credentials and licensing. Make sure the rehab facility you select has both.
While cognitive behavioral therapy and medication-assisted treatment are considered the best programs for Alcohol and Drug Addiction Rehab Treatment, your program should be specifically designed for you and your addiction. Make sure the rehab treatment facility doesn’t offer a one-size-fits-all treatment.
Like in real estate, location is very important. You and your family and doctors need to decide whether it is best to dramatically change your location so that you have fewer temptations from your drug- or alcohol-abusing life, or to stay close to your current location so that your social support network isn’t far away. Either choice can have a negative effect on your rehab. There are alcohol and drug addiction rehab treatment centers in urban areas and in rural areas, close to urban centers and far away, in isolated pastoral areas or isolated, almost desert areas.
Specialized Rehab Treatment Facilities
Dual Diagnosis Rehab Treatment Centers: People who have an addiction also often have an undiagnosed mental illness such as depression, mania, bipolar disorder or anxiety – about half of drug addicts and a third of alcoholics – but less than 10% receive rehab treatment for both co-occurring disorders. You may not know it yourself. If only one disorder is treated, it is more likely to recur. Make sure the rehab treatment facility screens for dual diagnosis.
Dual diagnosis refers to those struggling with an existing psychological disorder such as depression or anxiety. This is common what also struggling with addiction. Clients struggling with these other conditions need a dual diagnosis treatment center to treat both the cause and effect for true healing to begin. We’re able to identify these cases and make sure they get into a facility that can properly help them.
Some clients do best in higher end luxury rehab centers. These centers are often located on the beach and have a smaller number of clients at a time. They often include massage therapy, private chefs, acupuncture, and other amenities that you won’t find at all rehab centers.
Sometimes a coed rehab facility can be distracting. Maybe you don’t want the opposite sex to see you at your worst. You need to be open and honest during rehab treatment, comfortable with being yourself. If the presence of women or men is making it hard to focus or embarrassing you, look for a same-sex rehab Treatment center.
While many men find the presence of women to be a soothing force, others are simply distracted and unable to focus complete when they’re around women. For this reason we have options for both drug and alcohol rehab centers for men only as well as co-ed rehab options.
Faith can be a powerful aid in addiction rehab. Whether you are lapsed or observant, rehab treatment couched in terms of your religious beliefs – even your specific denomination – may be a great help.
12 Step Rehabs. Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous and other 12-step rehab groups can be an important aid to rehab treatment. While not a treatment in itself, many rehabs embed the 12-steps in their treatment plan. These fellowships bring together people with a shared history of substance abuse to share stories of failure and triumph, coping strategies and living proof that rehab is possible. It’s good practice for the rest of your life, which may include 12-step participation or similar.
12 step rehab systems have work for countless clients over the years and many rehab centers focus strongly on this. It’s a system that works for many and we can certainly help you find the right 12 step rehab center if this sounds like a system that may work for you.
Non 12 Step Rehabs. Twelve step programs are the most visible aid for addiction treatment, but not the only one. Some people object to their quasi-religious nature, or the rigid adherence to the 12 steps – in that order. There are variations on the 12 steps that include no mention, indirect or specific, of God or religion. SMART Recovery is one, but there are others
While 12 step recovery options have worked for very well for many, they’re not for everyone. Others thrive in a rehab environment without the structure that 12 step programs provide. For this type of individual a non 12 step rehab center may work better.
As powerful as faith can be, some people do not respond well to it in Alcohol and Drug Addiction Rehab Treatment Facilities. If you had a stern religious upbringing, or were abused by a religious personage or relative, then the accouterments of faith can be an unpleasant reminder and a complicating factor in rehab. Atheists, agnostics and other secular humanists also may reject treatment couched in terms of religion. In those cases, completely non-religious Alcohol and Drug Addiction Rehab Treatment Facilities are available.
Not all addictions are the same, and neither is the treatment regimen at all rehabs. You might benefit from a rehab facility that specializes in treating your particular drug.
Deluxe Rehab Treatment Centers
Suffering may build character, but fighting substance abuse is suffering enough. Some people may do better in a spartan setting, but most people would probably prefer more amenities, such as:
Length of Stay at a Residential Rehab Treatment Facility
Most stays at an inpatient residential rehab center last between 30 and 90 days, but there are times and circumstances when a shorter or longer stay is required:
Most experts believe addiction cannot be cured, so rehab treatment never entirely ends. Even years later, relapse is possible. Especially in the immediate aftermath of addiction treatment, outpatient rehab treatment should continue, including individual and group therapy, medical checkups and a support group.
Aftercare should not be an after thought. A worthwhile substance abuse center will have an aftercare program as part of its standard treatment plan. Make sure you find a rehab treatment facility that includes aftercare.
Elite Rehab Placement Helps You Find Rehabs
Addiction has no easy or instant cure. That doesn’t mean you or your loved one is weak or bad. In 2016 the U.S, Surgeon General said, “Addiction to alcohol or drugs is a chronic but treatable brain disease that requires medical intervention, not moral judgment.” Getting and staying sober may be a lifelong, one-day-at-a-time process. Seeking treatment is the important first step, but it can be difficult to find. We can help.

We speak their language and know how to place you in the best facility for your problem and situation. Even if that’s on the other side of the country, we can help you get there.
