Step One: Consider Your Needs
Every individual has specific needs that their addiction treatment program will be required to meet if it is going to be beneficial to them. According to the NIDA, “To be effective, treatment must address the individual’s drug abuse and any associated medical, psychological, social, vocational, and legal problems” they have. The treatment program must also be “appropriate to the individual’s age, gender, ethnicity, and culture.”
As a result, you may need to consider what is most important to you and which needs you must have met in order to feel effectively treated. For example, will you need to ensure that the clinicians speak Spanish because you feel more comfortable doing so? Are you experiencing problems as a result of losing your job and need help finding a new one? Would you prefer to receive treatment in a women’s only rehab center? Once you know what is most important to you and your recovery, it will be easier to find a program that provides those services.
Step Two: Consider Your Budget
Finding the right program will help ensure that you receive the best addiction help possible.
Certain facilities charge a large sum of money from patients while others are low-cost, work on a sliding fee scale, or even provide treatment for free. Consider what you are able to pay for treatment, and search out a facility that addresses your needs at the cost you can afford. This is especially critical, as long-term drug addiction can cause severe financial problems which can often make it dangerous for individuals to attend a treatment program outside of their means.

Step Three: Call the Program
Once you have found a suitable center in our directory, call the number provided and ask any questions you may have. These could refer to any of the needs you expect the program of your choice to meet, financial queries or questions about a payment plan, or any others which may seem relevant. You may also choose to ask:
What is your facility’s rate of success?
How long does your treatment program normally last?
Do you provide any additional treatments I should know about?
Step Four: Tour the Facility
After calling to make sure the program meets all your general needs, it is important to visit the facility yourself before signing on for treatment there. A program may seem perfect on paper, but until you see the rehab center for yourself, you will not fully be able to know what your treatment process will be like. If you visit the facility and are not able to feel comfortable, safe, and supported in your mission to stop abusing drugs, it likely is not the right fit for you.
According to the NIDA, “Whether a patient stays in treatment depends on factors associated with both the individual and the program.” This is why you must consider both your own needs and the ability of the program to meet them. Once you have done so, it will be easy to find the best addiction treatment program for you.
