Those who decide to get treatment for drug or alcohol abuse often do not arrive at the decision easily. They may require the help of family or friends who stage an intervention. Job loss and incarceration are other triggers that prompt people who struggle with alcohol or drugs to begin to seek recovery. Some recovering addicts make their decision to get clean and sober after privately assessing the effects of their substance use and opting to take steps toward a better lifestyle for themselves. However you or your loved one arrives at the decision to enter treatment, the next step is to choose a program. Fortunately, the process of finding a rehab near you can be easy when you consider the following factors.
Treatment Programs According to Individual Needs
No two addictions are exactly alike. Some people are better suited for gender-segregated programs. Others have better results when a program caters to the individual’s cultural background or religious beliefs. People who have an underlying mental condition that triggers their substance abuse require a program for clients who have a dual diagnosis. People also often prefer treatment centers that encourage certain healthy lifestyle choices like specific diets, exercise, or holistic practices.
The sky is the limit when it comes to finding a program that matches the client’s personal interests. We can help you choose the rehab environment that most closely aligns with your recovery needs.
Finding a Program that Fits Your Budget
Whether you have a high income or no income at all, there is a rehab center that will work with you. Government agencies and non-profit organizations operate drug and alcohol treatment programs that are available at no cost. There are also some private rehabs that charge according to an income-based sliding scale. Many centers offer payment plans. Health insurance plans often cover treatment at alcohol and drug rehab centers. There are very high-end alcohol and drug rehab centers and more basic treatment programs.
Speak with intake specialists at treatment centers that interest you, and ask about program costs, financing, and payment options. If you would like to use insurance to cover your treatment costs, contact your insurance provider to determine which treatment centers, programs, and services will be covered by your insurance.
Choosing a Setting
In some cases, the setting in which a treatment center is located can influence a person’s outcome as much as the treatment curriculum. Some clients need to remove themselves from their day-to-day environment and choose a treatment center that may be a long commute away from where they live. For example, someone who lives downtown may benefit from receiving treatment in the suburbs or even in the remote New England countryside away from their daily surroundings. Others benefit from receiving treatment in areas that are close to supportive family members and friends or other services. An outpatient client may need a rehab center that is close to his or her home or place of employment. Speak with a treatment counselor to explore the best options for you or your loved one.
Speak With Your Healthcare Provider
Communicating with your doctor is important. Not only can your healthcare provider provide insight on the types of features you should look for in a treatment center, but your doctor may also know of resources that can help make treatment even more accessible to you. If you are uncomfortable speaking with a medical care provider, you can also speak with one of our rehab counselors directly and anonymously to receive answers to your questions.
