What is the top drug rehab?

When you are dealing with an addiction to drugs or alcohol, seeking treatment from a facility with a reputation for success is highly recommended. However, with so many different addiction treatment centers in operation, finding the best treatment facility for your needs can be a challenge. As you consider different options, you may wonder which facility is considered the top drug rehab.

Measuring the Success of an Addiction Treatment Program

Addiction treatment programs vary based on a number of different factors, including:

  • Affordability - The cost of treatment programs varies by facility. Likewise, some facilities offer more payment programs or accept more insurance plans than others.
  • Treatment Options - Some drug treatment facilities offer more treatment options than others. For example, while some facilities offer only a basic treatment program, others offer alternative treatment, detox, intervention support and more.
  • Amenities - Drug treatment facilities offer different amenities. For example, a luxury rehab typically offers more comfortable rooms and high-end amenities than a standard rehab facility.
  • Success Rates - Drug treatment centers have different success rates. These rates are typically expressed as percentages.
  • Location - Drug treatment facilities are available all across the country. Some are in more ideal locations than others.

Finding the Top Facility

When ranking addiction treatment facilities, one of the easiest characteristics to utilize is the facility's success rate. Using this measurement, the top drug rehab center as of 2014 is the Solutions Recovery Center in Florida, which has a success rate of over 95 percent. However, depending on your priorities, this may not be the best way to determine which facility is best for your needs. For example, if you don't have insurance coverage, a facility's affordability may be more important.

To find the addiction treatment center that is best for you, begin by determining which factors are most important for your needs. Next, research the different facilities you are considering to see how they compare with regard to these factors. Be sure to look on the facilities' websites to find information. You can also learn about various facilities by reading rehab reviews written by past patients. If you have questions about a specific facility, contact the center to learn more about its services.
