Finding the best addiction rehab centers
Addiction rehab centers are available all across the United States and internationally. However, each of these centers offers different advantages and disadvantages to patients. If you are struggling with an addiction to drugs or alcohol, use the criteria below to evaluate different facilities and find the best addiction rehab centers in your area.
When choosing a rehab facility, location is an important consideration. A facility's location determines how far you will have to travel before you begin your treatment program. If you would rather stay near your home, or if you are on a budget, facilities that are far from your hometown may not be the best choice. On the other hand, some of the best facilities are found in remote locations with beautiful scenery, such as in Malibu or near the mountains in Utah. If you are looking for the most relaxing environment possible, traveling to another location may be worth the trouble.

2. Success Rate
A facility's success rate tells you how many program graduates have been able to recover from their addictions in the past. For example, if a facility advertises a success rate of 80 percent, you can assume that 80 percent of people who completed the program recovered successfully. In general, the best facilities have higher success rates.
All rehab facilities build a reputation among past clients and in the medical community. You can learn about the reputation of a specific rehab center by looking for rehab reviews published online. In general, the best reviews are those published on neutral, third-party websites. Rehab reviews published directly by the facility tend to be more biased. Try to choose a facility that has a good reputation.
Not all rehab centers provide patients with the same services. For example, some of the best facilities offer inpatient medically supervised detox programs to help patients eliminate drugs from their body with as little discomfort as possible. Some programs may also offer supportive resources to people who have completed their treatment and left the facility. Try to find a program that offers a range of services.
For most people, cost is a serious concern when it comes to addiction treatment. Before you enroll in any program, be sure that you are able to afford your portion of the bill. Keep in mind that some programs do accept insurance payments.
