How to Find the Best Rehab For Your Loved One
Drug and alcohol addiction represent a growing epidemic in today’s nation. In 2014, a staggering 21.5 million Americans over age 12 met criteria for a substance use disorder.
Because addiction can be so complicated and progressive, many individuals will need professional help to get sober.
However, finding the best rehab for your loved one can also be a challenge. With so many options available, this may be one of the more important choices you can make to assure your loved one’s recovery.
Fortunately, we’ve narrowed down the very best tips for assuring that your loved one gets the appropriate help he or she needs for success.
Let’s get into it!
Finding the Best Rehabs
Evidence-Based Treatment Models
While there is no one-size-fits-all treatment solution, the best rehabs utilize a variety of evidence-based approaches in their care.
This means that trained clinicians and counselors provide techniques and interventions that have been proven to help assist with recovery efforts.
Popular evidence-based practices include:
- Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy
- Motivational Interviewing
- Dialectical Behavior Therapy
It is key to look for centers that provide extensive clinical services and integrate individual therapies, group therapies, and thorough treatment planning and assessments in their care.
Unfortunately, even when successfully completing rehab programs, many clients relapse soon after. This is because they return to their old familiar environments.
One of the best rules of thumb? Look for a treatment center that provides aftercare (such as IOP and/or sober living).
Aftercare helps assist clients with managing cravings and triggers while also reintegrating back into society.
Price and Payment Options
Rehab costs can vary wildly, from absolutely free to tens of thousands of dollars. While you cannot necessarily put a price on your loved one’s health, cost does play a role in determining effective care.
With that said, it’s important to look for a rehab that offers different payment options to best suit the client and his or her family’s financial needs. These can include:
- Utilizing insurance
- Paying out-of-pocket
- Scholarship or discounted rates
- Referring to lower-cost treatments as needed
The best rehabs will clearly outline prices and fees for all prospective and current clients and their loved ones.
With more and more clients presenting with co-occurring disorders, finding a rehab that offers recovery for mental health issues and trauma can be incredibly valuable.
Whether you struggle with complex PTSD or an eating disorder, there is dual-diagnostic treatment available. This kind of treatment will target both the substance addiction and the mental health disorder.
If you belong to a specialty population (i.e: pregnant mothers, military, LGBTQ), be sure to ask the rehab about the types of services and treatment options available.
While addiction is a complex and progressive disease, recovery is available, and there is always hope for your loved one.
We firmly believe that nobody needs to suffer, and we also believe in providing quality treatment and care for all our clients.
