If you are looking for the right drug rehab facility for yourself or for someone you love, then these are some factors you need to consider. There are heaps of facilities out there that could help you or your family. But which option should you choose? And more importantly, how can you be sure that the one you do pick is the best one?
Searching for a drug or alcohol treatment rehab service may seem like a daunting task, but be encouraged, many have had successful results.
Different Treatments Available
Consider what treatment you may be after and the levels of care. Levels of treatment can include highly regulated, clinically supervised detox and continued via aftercare. Other types of treatment include cognitive behaviour therapy, medication-assisted therapy, holistic therapy, and more. In order to make a fully informed decision, it is important to discuss options with your GP, family and the service providers themselves.
An additional aspect to consider when choosing a drug or alcohol rehab facility or therapy is location. For the most part, recovery rates have the tendency to be greater when an individual is distanced from any negative influences in their life. For those who have children, however, it may be extra beneficial to participate in a facility closer to home. This will allow easy access for children and other family members who want to come and visit.
Length of Stay
Some treatments can take longer than others and a medical professional may discuss a specific length of stay in order for the treatment to have an effect. Make sure the drug or alcohol rehab facility can cater to long periods of stay, or if they’re more suited for short-term treatments. The facility should keep you comfortable and safe for however long you need to focus on recovery.
Compassion From Staff
While you’re deciding between multiple alternatives for therapy, the level of trust that staff members build with you or your loved one can be equally as important as the staff’s credentials and accreditations. There has to be some empathy from the beginning and also establishing trust is crucial to recovery.
Not every rehabilitation facility approaches dependency therapy in the same way. Some provide a spiritual framework with focus on mind, body and spirit connection, while others take a more scientific approach. Take the time to explore each facilities focus and available treatment as this will certainly help you identify whether you or your loved one will be a good fit for that center.
