How to find the best rehabilitation centers
Drug addiction is a problem that needs treating. In the United States, 23.5 million adults required treatment for drug or alcohol abuse in 2009, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse. When you consider the best treatment facilities for your addiction problem, make a list of your needs, ask your doctor for recommendations, and read online rehab reviews before you make a decision.
Things to Consider
Before you look at rehab centers, you need to consider some factors that affect you personally. For example, you might want a rehab center that is close to you, or you could prefer one that is far away from family and friends to give you time to get back to health on your own. You should also think about the cost you should expect to pay. Many insurance plans will cover addiction therapy, but not all provide coverage for inpatient drug rehabilitation. You will likely be expected to pay at least a small percentage of your treatment, which could be thousands of dollars.

Once you know your options, you should ask your doctor for a recommendation. Discuss with your doctor your needs for alcohol treatment and talk about your preference for an inpatient rehab center or outpatient treatment facility. Your doctor will make a few recommendations that are in your area, and s/he may have pamphlets to look at for each of them. With this information, you can start to finalize the decision-making process.
You can find online reviews for virtually any of the best rehabilitation centers. When you read rehab reviews, be sure to look at a few factors, including:
- common activities
- treatment plans
The best treatment option for you is one that you will stick with, so be sure to be a little selfish about your preferences. If a center seems like it does not fit with your personal philosophy on alcohol treatment, consider another choice. You can find a rehab center that will get you going on the right path, no matter where you are when you start.
Finding effective alcohol and drug treatment requires research. With a little work, you will locate a facility that will treat you with respect and give you a second chance at a better life.
