Keep in mind that some of these types of drug rehabs may overlap. For example, some facilities qualify as both a luxury center and an executive center.
2. Search for your desired facility type in your area.
After you know what type of facility you want to attend, search online to find all of the options in your area. If you cannot find enough options close to home, consider branching out to other cities or states. However, keep in mind that travel expenses may raise the overall cost of your recovery.
3. Compare all of your options.
Once you have compiled a list of all of the options in your area, you can narrow them down by comparing facilities to one another. Some of the characteristics you should compare include:
- Location - Is the facility close to your home, or will you need to travel? What is the scenery like? Will the weather be comfortable?
- Cost - The cost of treatment can vary considerably. Be sure to find out about the price of your program, as well as the facilities' policies with regard to insurance and payment plans.
- Reputation - You can learn about the reputations of different treatment centers by reading rehab reviews written by authorities in the field and/or past patients. Look for a facility that has a good reputation.
- Effectiveness - The most effective facilities will have the highest recovery rates. You can typically find recovery rates published on each facility's website. However, if a recovery rate is not readily available, you can also call to inquire.
- Services - Make sure the facility you choose has all of the services you need. For example, if you are nervous about experiencing withdrawal symptoms during detox, choose a facility with a medically-supervised detox program.
