Drug and alcohol addiction is so highly stigmatized that people assume it is uncommon when, in fact, it isn’t. The National Institute on Drug Abuse tells us that in 2007, 23.3 million Americans over the age of 12 are addicted to drugs or alcohol. That’s nearly 10% of the population, or one in 10 people. Of these people, only 2.4 million – or 10.4% of those suffering with an addiction – sought treatment.


Why is it that so few seek treatment for their addiction? Part of the problem is that it is difficult to choose a rehab from among the many facilities available. Because every drug and alcohol rehab works a little bit differently – and each one has a different success rate – someone that is suffering with an addiction may easily find themselves overwhelmed by the sheer number of choices.


At theFix.com, it’s our mission to help you find the best rehabilitation facility. To that end, we’ll take a moment to show you some of the things that you should look for in any detox rehab facility.


Choosing the Best Rehabilitation Center


No matter what type of rehab you’re searching for, there are a few elements that the average detox facilities will feature. This includes things like licensure from governing local, state and federal agencies and a 24-hour availability of trained doctors and nurses. However, to find the very best treatment centers, you’ll need to dig a little deeper.


  • Search for alcohol and drug rehab programs that have dual diagnosis programs. This ensures that any underlying conditions that may be leading to the addiction (or standing in the way of treatment) will be treated also.
  • Make sure that the facility uses a multidisciplinary approach to drug and alcohol rehab. In other words, your treatment should be supervised not only by doctors, but also by psychiatrists, therapists and other trained professionals.
  • Will you have access to specialty programs? Some examples include programs geared towards women, the LGBT community or towards people of various faiths.


It’s sometimes tough to find the best drug rehab for your particular needs. Fortunately, theFix.com exists to answer all of your questions.
