What Are the Best Rehab Centers in the US?

As you search for addiction treatment facilities, you’ll quickly realize one thing: Not all rehabilitation centers are created equally. From one facility to the next, you’ll find differences in the length of the treatment plan, the types of substances that are handled, and the kinds of treatments that are offered. Some treatment centers are geared towards executives while others resemble a beachside resort.


With seemingly endless options, how do you find the best rehab centers in the country? There are many tools that you can rely on, including the rehab reviews on our website. However, it is also helpful to learn about factors like success rates and treatment lengths – and how those factors should play into your final decision. We’ll show you what you need to know about these two things in order to choose a great treatment center.


How to Look at Success Rates


Relapse happens. In fact, between 40% and 60% of patients who go through rehab for drug addiction experience a relapse. However, relapse isn’t a sign that the treatment isn’t working. Treatment for addiction is an ongoing process, and a relapse is simply a sign that the treatment plan needs to be reevaluated and adjusted. That is why, when you’re searching for the best rehab centers, you should always keep in mind that each facility’s success rate doesn’t tell the whole story about how that particular facility approaches addiction.


Why Treatment Length is Important


Treatment programs can last for anywhere between 30 days and 12 months or more. As you’re searching for the best rehabilitation facilities, be wary of those that promise fast results. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, programs that last for 90 days or less are less effective while treatment programs that are significantly longer than that help guarantee success.


The problem with lengthy treatment programs is finding a program that you’ll stick with. The best rehab centers understand that dropout rates are a major problem, and they should be willing to work with you to ensure that your plan meets not only your treatment needs, but also your lifestyle, too.


One of the best ways to find an addiction facility that meets all of your needs is to learn about the experiences others have had with various treatment centers. Fortunately, if you want to read real reviews, you can always depend on theFix.com. With reviews from hundreds of former clients, you can easily find the best rehab centers in the US.
