Rehab Concerns You Might Not Have Considered

So it’s time to go to rehab? You probably have a ton of things on your mind. You might be really concerned about whether or not you can do this. That is usually the primary concerns. But, another biggie is whether or not the facility you have chosen is the right one for you. Maybe you can only do it is the treatment center is exactly the right one for you. But how do you find the right one?

The biggest concerns people have when seeking treatment are location and cost. It makes sense. If you can’t deal with the location or cover the cost, your chances of succeeding are compromised. And, as people are naturally prone to relapse, you really need to find the best place possible. The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) points out “Treatment of chronic diseases involves changing deeply imbedded behaviors, and relapse does not mean treatment has failed. For a person recovering from addiction, lapsing back to drug use indicates that treatment needs to be reinstated or adjusted or that another treatment should be tried.”

Addiction is a treatable disease and research shows that various intervention strategies will work to help people transition into recovery and prolonged sobriety. But finding what works for you can’t just be economical and geographical. You should make an effort to really tailor the experience to your needs and your personality. NIDA recommends you find one that matches “patient’s drug abuse pattern and also his or her drug-related medical, psychiatric, and social problems.”

If you are ready to get into the specifics of various treatment programs to find the one that can work for you, that’s a great decision and we want to help.

Comorbidity

Comorbidity is a pretty complicated word, but it basically means two disorders that happen at the same time. For example, you could be suffering from a cocaine addiction and from OCD. Or, it could be opioid dependence and manic depression. Even issues like heart disease and alcoholism can be comorbid. What you need to remember is that a change in the status of your addiction will mean a change in the comorbid disorder.

In order to get the best care, if you have comorbid disorders, you need to be in a treatment center that will treat both of them. Having a mental issue get out of control without treatment can undermine your treatment entirely. Be sure to hold out for a rehab center that can accommodate everything you have going on.

Gender

Rehab Concerns

If being around the opposite sex makes you uncomfortable or distracts you, then you may want to consider gender based treatment.

Men and women are different and so are people that fluidly position themselves outside of the traditional binary. Treatment can be tailored to meet your gender. This is often helpful for teenagers. Adolescence is a time when gender differences are in stark contrast due to differing brain development. Girls will general mature faster. For heterosexuals, the tension of sharing a mixed gender treatment may also prove distracting.

Age

Just as gender can be difficult for teens, so can rehab geared for adults. Younger addicts really do benefit from rehab geared toward them. There are so many developmental stages that continue even up until people’s early 20s.

For example, the National Institute on Mental Health notes: “Adults drink more frequently than teens, but when teens drink they tend to drink larger quantities than adults. There is evidence to suggest that the adolescent brain responds to alcohol differently than the adult brain, perhaps helping to explain the elevated risk of binge drinking in youth.”

For this reason, among others, drug and alcohol treatment does need to respect the ages of its participants.

There are a lot of other niches that should be considered. You may need rehab that takes into account:

  • Religion
  • Culture
  • Sexual orientation
  • Race and ethnicity
  • Length
  • Comfort level
