How to Locate the Right Rehab Facility
For you or your loved one, admitting to a substance abuse problem like a drug or alcohol addiction is as brave as it is difficult. Don’t give up now just because the next step – trying to locate the right drug and alcohol rehab facilities – doesn’t seem any easier.
It’s 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 available rooms in a treatment facility – but it is worth it. Help is available.
Insurance often covers at least some, if not all of the cost at many rehabs, but there are many other factors you might need to consider. Our team knows the ins and outs of rehab costs and processes to make your transition into recovery as easy and as budget-friendly as possible.
Outpatient or Inpatient Alcohol and Drug Rehab Facilities?
The first and possibly most important thing you have to do is choose whether you’d like inpatient or outpatient treatment. This is an important choice, as it can dictate the level of care you’ll receive, and for how long you’ll be in rehab.
Outpatient Rehab Treatment Facilities
The main benefit of outpatient rehab is that your life is disrupted as little as possible. You may continue to attend school or work your job, as you’ll attend rehab for a certain amount of hours per day or week. Outpatient facilities also are less expensive since beds, baths and 24-hour security aren’t provided.
While outpatient rehab is good for those on the go with a busy life, it does have its fair share of disadvantages. Since you’re not in treatment day and night, you won’t receive the same level of care you would in inpatient treatment. Another important factor to consider is that the more you remain in your old life – the one in which you abused drugs – the more exposed you are to temptations, cravings, and triggers.
Inpatient Treatment Centers
The main advantage of an inpatient rehab facility is that you are more closely monitored, so you have :
- Fewer distractions or triggers from your old life
- Less stress from work, school, and relationships
- Fewer opportunities to relapse, to backslide
- More time for therapy, activities, and 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. As nice as it may be, you can’t stay there forever. This is why rehab centers put a focus on providing you with the tools and techniques you need to succeed in the outside world.
What to Look for in Inpatient Alcohol and Drug Addiction Rehab Facilities
Before you decide on an inpatient rehab facility, there are some basic precautions you should take. Not every substance abuse facility is created equal, or is even legitimate or safe. 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 Rehab Facilities
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.
Addiction treatment is a specialized field and discipline. Not every doctor, psychologist, or counselor is qualified. Both the rehabs and their 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 facility doesn’t offer a one-size-fits-all treatment.
Like in real estate, location is very important. You, your family, and your doctors need to decide whether it is best to dramatically change your location so that you have fewer temptations, 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, so it’s important to have knowledgeable help in choosing the right one.
Specialized Rehab Treatment Facilities
Dual Diagnosis Rehab Treatment Centers: People who have an addiction also often have an undiagnosed mental illness such as depression, bipolar disorder or anxiety. Roughly half of drug addicts and a third of alcoholics struggle with a dual diagnosis of addiction and mental illness, but less than 10% receive rehab treatment for both co-occurring disorders. If only one disorder is treated, it’s likely that the other disorder will simply cause the other to resurface. For this reason, it’s important to make sure the rehab treatment facility you’re interested in screens for dual diagnosis.
Dual diagnosis refers to an overlap of addiction an existing psychological disorder such as depression or anxiety. 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 you get into a facility that can properly help you.
Some clients do best in higher end luxury rehab centers. These centers are often located in a scenic and relaxing environment, 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, while figuring out how to be comfortable being yourself. If the presence of women or men is making it hard to focus or even feels embarrassing, 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 into 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 recovery is possible.
12 step rehab systems have work for countless people 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 it sounds like a system that may work for you.
Non 12 Step Rehabs. Twelve step programs are the most common program featured in 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 reha. If you had a stern religious upbringing, or have had bad experiences with organized religion, then the 12 step program 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 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 addiction.
Executive Rehab Treatment Centers
Suffering may build character, but fighting substance abuse is suffering enough. Some people may do better in a tougher, more rigid setting, but most people would probably prefer more amenities, such as:
How Long is Rehab?
Most stays at an inpatient rehab center are between 30 and 90 days, but there are times and circumstances where a shorter or longer stay is required:
Many Choices, One Solution
Addiction has no easy or instant cure, but that doesn’t mean you’re weak or immoral. 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 is 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.
The prospect of sorting through all these details can seem insurmountable, but it’s not. Don’t give up hope, or your resolve to fight your substance abuse problem. Help is available through Elite Rehab Placement – you just have to ask for it.
