The process of beginning your journey towards sobriety and long-term recovery can be overwhelming and fraught with confusion. Once the decision is made to address a substance abuse issue through drug and alcohol treatment and rehabilitation, the amount of information and questions regarding that information can come at you from all angles. After doing the research, the ultimate question that needs to be answered is if the rehab that you have chosen is the best rehab facility that best suits your needs. The following list outlines the 15 signs that that rehab you have chosen is going to be a great rehab for you.
15. Cost Friendly
Drug & alcohol treatment isn’t cheap; some of the best inpatient drug treatment facilities can run into the tens of thousands of dollars. While the cost of treatment may be a formidable obstacle, the best drug treatment facilities accept insurance from many health insurance providers and with the passage of the Affordable Care Act, many services are now covered fully. In the case that an individual doesn’t have insurance or the insurance they have doesn’t cover rehab, the best facilities may provide scholarships or some form of financial aid.
A great rehab has licensed, experienced and qualified staff. The personnel that is employed at the best rehabs have many years of experience dealing with the specific issues and unique needs of those struggling with both the physical and psychological aspects of abuse. Additionally, many staff are recovering addicts themselves and as a result they have both the knowledge and empathy needed to support and empower those in treatment.
Great rehab facilities have the current and proper accreditation in the states they operate. These facilities also perform comprehensive audits on an internal basis in order to meet the criteria put forth by accreditation agencies such as the National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers (NAATP) or The Joint Commision. These types of accreditations ensure a client that the treatment facility meets all the expected criteria and is a top notch provider.
12. High Success Rate
The best drug rehab programs have high success rates that are measurable and documented. High success rates include: low percentage of clients leaving treatment early, low relapses when a client leaves treatment, the amount of time between leaving treatment and relapse, and long term sobriety clients. You have chosen a great rehab when the facilities have their success rates documented by impartial outside sources that are credentialed and respected.
11. Solid Aftercare Program
Those drug treatment facilities that rank among the best have solid and successful aftercare programs in place after an individual completes formal drug treatment. These aftercare programs can include individual counseling, halfway houses, employment assistance and placement into housing.
10. Small Client/Staff Ratio
Drug & alcohol rehabilitation facilities that have high success rates have a small client to staff ratio. Smaller ratios mean greater focus on the individual client and greater attention to the specific and unique needs of each client.
