What is the highest success rate drug rehab?

Drug rehab facilities are designed to help people overcome addictions to drugs or alcohol. However, some of these facilities are more effective than others, and not every patient will make a full recovery. In fact, according to one study of the National Institute on Drug Abuse, between 40 and 60 percent of people treated for drug abuse will relapse.

The more effective your treatment program, the less likely you will be to succumb to your addiction when the program is over. For this reason, it's a good idea to look for a drug treatment facility with a high rate of success.


About Success Rates

A drug treatment facility's success rate tells you how many of the facility's patients complete the program and recover from their addictions. For example, a success rate of 92 percent means that 92 out of 100 patients were treated effectively. You can typically find a treatment center's success rate on the facility's website. You can also contact the facility for more specific information.

Treatment Centers with High Success Rates

Please be careful of outlandish claims made regarding high success rates.

Most treatment centers do not have studies to back this up, and hide behind protected health care information laws in order to claim their unsubstantiated outrageously high success rates and market their facilities.

The truth is there are good top notch treatment facilities, and like anything else, some are better than others.  You just need to do your due diligence, which includes speaking to your health care provider, your therapist, an addiction specialist, as well as numerous online inquiries.

Finding the Right Treatment Facility

If possible, seeking treatment at one of the treatment centers with the highest success rates is preferable. However, if you live far from these facilities, if you cannot afford the cost of treatment at a luxury rehab, or if these facilities are full when you are ready to enroll, you can still find a suitable alternative. To find an effective treatment center, consult the facility's website for information about success rates, treatment programs and amenities. It may also be helpful to read through rehab reviews written by past patients in order to get an idea of how the facility operates. Finally, be sure to consider whether or not the facility will accept your insurance plan, as this may affect the cost of treatment dramatically.
