What to Look for in Top Addiction Treatment Centers
Most people don’t know what to look for when selecting a treatment center. While there are over 14,500 treatment centers in the US, not all programs are the same. How do you know what the best program is for your loved one?
The first step is to consider what’s needed. Is an inpatient or outpatient program better for your situation? An inpatient program tends to have a higher success rate. An outpatient program allows the patient to have the comforts of home attending counseling and programs.
Experts agree that for severe cases of substance abuse, residential cases are better. They’re more likely to result in positive outcomes.
The level of individualized treatment is another consideration. There may be specific circumstances that need to be addressed such as family issues, lack of a support structure, physical and mental health issues.
The treatment of mental health issues at a facility can be a critical component for recovery. HelpGuide reports that about half of those with severe mental health issues also are affected by substance abuse.
What the top addiction treatment centers have in common is a focus on overall health and a variety of recovery programs.
