How Can I Find the Best Rehab Center?
When you have finally decided to enter rehab, you will probably want the best treatment available, but figuring out what that means can be difficult. If you aren’t a rehab expert, what are you supposed to do? There are too many variables that seem to prevent you from making a clear choice.
You can’t just jump online and type “best rehab center” into Google and think that you will come up with the answer to your problem. You also can’t just pick something based on price and hope for the best.

Before you start making calls and taking tours, you need to get some basic information together.
How Much Can I Afford?
You need to understand the price range you can accommodate. Call your insurance or look over the policy or call us and learn about the amount of coverage you currently have. Some programs may not accept insurance, so you should also know how much independent financing you can get together.
How Far Will I Travel?
You should also decide what location will best suit your needs. How close to the center do you need to live? It might be nice to use a nearby facility because you can take advantage of your support system of local family and friends. However, if your home life is in turmoil and you actually require distance from the situation, you might be better served by going out of state or some distance from home.
Do I Need a Specialized Program?
You need to consider what type of program will best suit your addiction situation. For example, would you benefit from a program that followed a specific religious model? What about a program for LGBTA people? There are also programs that are gender or age specific. As a starting point, consider whether or not one of these demographic specific programs could help you to enter and continue treatment.
Be sure to ask potential programs what their treatment approach is.
You should also make up your mind about treatment length. Treatment length varies and will depend upon your insurance coverage and your specific case, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go into your decision with some idea of how long you can give to rehab. If you don’t have 90 days free, then you don’t need to look at 90-day programs.
How Comprehensive Should the Care Be?
Drug addiction doesn’t happen in a vacuum. It may have been influenced by another condition or have resulted in the acquisition of another condition. Frequently, addicts also suffer from other physical or mental conditions. The National Institute on Drug Abuse notes people with anxiety or mood disorders are twice as likely to suffer from an addiction as well. The reverse is true as well.
You will want to make sure that the program that you enter screens for other conditions and is qualified to treat them.
What Role Do Qualifications Have?
It is important that the rehab you choose have a record of evidence-based success and proper licensing. Licensing is obviously important because it is mandatory for a facility to operate legally, and you want that, of course. For a rehab center to be considered successful, it needs to be able to provide empirical proof of patient outcomes. Ask for this and make sure it is provided.
Accreditation and certification also indicate a top-notch program.
