What are the best drug and alcohol treatment facilities?
When you realize that you need treatment for your drug addiction or alcohol dependence, you sometimes do not know where to start. This is a common problem. The National Institute on Drug Abuse reports that only about 10 percent of people who need help for addiction get it at a specialized facility. This guide shows you how to identify what you need, and find the best drug and alcohol treatment facilities for your needs.
Inpatient vs. Outpatient
There are many different types of treatment programs available for you, depending on what you personally need. The most obvious distinction is between inpatient and outpatient facilities. With outpatient treatment, you may attend sessions with a therapist or group activities while you continue to live at home. In an inpatient rehabilitation facility, you live in the facility for a short time while you get an opportunity to detoxify and also focus intensely on your recovery.

Factors to Consider
Each facility runs treatment in a different way. You will need to look at the following factors before you make your decision:
- treatment plans
- program duration
Inpatient rehab programs can be quite expensive, so you should make sure that you could cover what your insurance does not. You should also investigate the average length of the program, and what services the facility offers for you once you are discharged. Finally, take a look at the center’s treatment philosophy, to get a sense of whether or not you can stick with it.
Making a Decision
The decision to go to a particular rehab center is highly personal. The best treatment facilities will provide you with personal care, counseling, detoxification and other medical services as needed. For centers that meet these criteria, you can search online and read reviews of the different facilities from others who have been there. Be sure to note any concerns presented in the reviews, and consider asking the facility how they address these problems. This will give you a better idea of what to expect, and help you finalize your decision.
The determination to get free from addiction is one of the best resolutions you will ever make. By looking at all of your options, you will find a treatment facility that will help you on your way to freedom.
