Let us help you find a drug rehab center!

Drug addiction has reached an all-time high throughout the world and it is not expected to peak any time soon. It is estimated that as many as 1 in 4 American’s has trouble with an addiction and for those who are not suffering directly from addiction most know someone who is. This means that nearly every individual in the country will at some point be faced with trying to find a reliable drug rehab center for themselves or a loved one.

Length Matters at Reliable Drug Rehab Programs

The most reliable drug rehab programs are at least 30 days long and usually last 90 days or more. If you are looking for a drug rehab center and aren’t sure where to start, begin by searching for a rehab center that offers an extended program. Studies show that the most effective treatment programs provide counseling and therapy for a period of at least 30 days. If you are addicted to a highly physically addicting drug, consider a rehab program that includes a period of detox prior to the counseling and therapy.

Inpatient Versus Outpatient Rehab Centers

When searching for reliable rehab centers, consider the type of services and care that are offered. Most rehab centers can be classified into one of two categories—inpatient and outpatient. Inpatient drug rehab centers provide around the clock treatment and care for addiction in a facility where the addict will live for the duration of the program. Outpatient drug rehab centers provide limited services to patients on an outpatient status and the addict will continue to live at home for the duration of the treatment. For those who do not have a significant support system at home and for those who have highly physical addictions, long term inpatient treatment may be most suitable.

Medications in Drug Rehab

The most reliable drug rehab centers will use limited medications during the course of treatment. This does not mean that you can expect not to receive medication for certain health conditions or to help you remain clean, only that the most reliable programs will limit the intake of medications that could cause additional addiction problems. It’s important that a drug rehab program rely more on counseling and therapy as well as natural remedies over medications to treat addiction. Ask questions about how much medication and what types of medication are used in treatment prior to choosing a drug rehab center for yourself or a loved one.

Reliable Drug Rehab Centers Recognize the Importance of Aftercare

Aftercare programs in drug rehab consist of various types of help that are offered on an extended basis for the recovering addict. The most reliable drug rehab centers realize that the most effective drug treatment extends long after the initial 30-90 days or so in treatment. Aftercare programs may include counseling, extended therapy, community involvement and various placement services that will help the recovering addict and support them along the way.
