Can My Friends Visit Me at a Rehab Center?

Going to a rehab center, especially a residential facility, can be difficult but it can also be very necessary to your recovery under certain circumstances. If you are considering this treatment option, it is important to ask yourself how best you will be able to attend residential care and in what ways your loved ones can help you stay in treatment. One of these ways is visitation, but if you are someone whose friends are very important to them, the question of whether or not they can visit you in a rehab center is likely high on your list of concerns.

Is the Option of Visitation from Friends Possible?

Some rehab centers allow friends to visit.

Many facilities exist where patients can receive visits from immediate family members, but there are also programs where friends and others who do not have proof of kinship can visit you. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, recovery “is supported by peers, friends, and family members,” and anyone who is a benefit to an individual’s overall recovery should be involved in their journey. The help and support of loved ones is often what keeps patients in treatment for adequate lengths of time and what helps remind them that their decision to get help was the right one.

How Do I Know if My Friends Can Visit Me at a Rehab Center?

The best way to find out is to seek the type of program that seems to fit as many of your needs as possible (including any needs concerning age, gender, ethnicity, culture, finances, etc.) and to call before making the decision to attend treatment there. Ask who is allowed to visit you at the facility and what they will need to bring to be able to be let in. Some treatment centers do background checks on the individuals who come to visit their patients while others may be more lenient but will still require a passport or driver’s license from visitors. Make sure you know all the information about who can visit you when you are at the facility so you do not end up in a program that doesn’t offer this option.

Are There Different Rules for Friends Visiting?

Sometimes there are different rules depending on the facility. Some programs may ask that friends or non-immediate family members only visit on certain days or between certain times while others do not put this type of restriction on those who want to visit. Either way, it is still important to ask these questions before you begin attending treatment at the program so that you can make sure to find the facility that best fits your needs.

Friends Visiting During Recovery is Beneficial

For many individuals, the option to have friends visit them in treatment is extremely helpful and can strengthen their recoveries. Some people only have intimate relationships with friends, and therefore, need to find a facility that provides visiting hours for these individuals. Your recovery is your own, and it is important to find the option that fits into the best scenario for you.
