According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, drug addiction is a disease. Unfortunately, admitting you need treatment for this disease is very difficult. Once you admit your addiction, you there are many things that you have to take care of, one of which is finding the right rehab for you. You can do this by asking five simple questions.
What Does the Rehab Center Treat?
It is important to know what and who the rehab center treats. Some rehab centers treat only specific conditions while others treat only drug addictions or only specific drug addictions. Some treatment centers are both criminal and noncriminal facilities. It is important to know which type of rehab center you are entering.
If the criminal element bothers you then you should not choose one that treats people on probation or those who have been ordered to rehab because of a criminal offence. You also want to make sure that the rehab center you choose treats the type of addiction you have.
What Amenities are There?
You’ll want to make sure the rehab you choose offers the amenities you think will be most beneficial to you.
Every rehab center has different amenities. Amenities are things that may help treatment or just help make you a healthier, more comfortable person while you are in treatment. Some of the options rehab centers offer are:
These amenities are just extras provided along with standard treatment. Standard treatment usually includes:
other treatment services
By asking about what the treatment center offers, you can find out if the center offers everything that you need.
What Happens if the Treatment Does Not Work or Takes Longer than Expected?
Most rehabs offer both long and short term solutions for treatment. Before you enter a rehab you should know what happens if you need more treatment than is originally expected. Although most treatment centers plan for 30, 60, or 90 day stays, there are circumstances where these time frames do not work. It is important to have alternative options if treatment takes longer than expected.
Is the Staff Licensed?
Licensed staff is extremely important. Quite a few addiction centers have been accused of using untrained and unlicensed staff members to help with addiction treatment. This is extremely dangerous. It is important that the staff is trained to deal with the different types of addictions treated at the facility.
