1. The facility's services.
Some facilities specialize in treating certain types of addiction. In addition, some facilities offer more comprehensive treatment programs than others do. Make sure that the rehab center you select is not only equipped to handle your specific addiction, but also offers all of the services you will need. For example, if you are worried about withdrawal symptoms during detoxification, choose a facility that provides medically-supervised painless detox services.
2. The cost and payment options.
All facilities impose different charges for their addiction treatment services. Likewise, while some facilities are happy to accept payments from your insurance provider, others are not. Be sure that the facility you choose will be affordable for you. Keep in mind that some facilities may require you to pay your portion of the bill at the time of admission. Ask about this policy before you enroll.
3. The facility's reputation.
After they have been established for a while, all rehab centers build a reputation among past patients, medical professionals and the community. Learning about different facilities' reputations will help you to make the right choice when you select a treatment program. To find out about a facility, ask around or read rehab reviews published online. In general, you should look for rehab reviews that were published by third parties, rather than by the facility itself.
4. The facility's effectiveness.
One of the most important characteristics to consider when looking for the best rehab centers is the effectiveness of each facility's program. The more effective the program, the easier it will be for you to overcome your addiction to drugs or alcohol. To learn about a facility's effectiveness, search for success rates on the facility's website. If the information is not readily available, you can also call the facility directly to inquire. Most of these rates will be expressed as a percentage. For example, a success rate of 70 percent tells you that 70 out of 100 patients recover.
