The right rehab is not always the best question to ask when seeking help for addiction. Finding a place that offers support and help that gets a person moving forward in recovery can be done in many different places. The key is to find what works at the moment for the current situation. There are some good questions to ask when looking at rehab facilities that can help decide which is right for a loved one.
Residential facilities offer lots of amenities. When people look at living somewhere on-site, they should ask some important questions to know if this is a good fit. Some questions about sleeping arrangements are helpful. Some bedrooms are private or shared. Some places have a gym on-site, provide affordable care, and often entertainment options for people in need of treatment. Affordability is another option as some accommodations cost more or provide a higher level of care for those who can pay.
Some programs offer 12 step focused therapies while others look at faith-based opportunities, dual diagnosis care, and medication management services. These treatment options vary from place to place. While some focus on holistic practices, others follow strict protocol around a certain method like 12 steps, requiring lots of meetings and group therapy that focus on this process. This can work for some people, but not for others. It may not be easy to know what will suit a person in rehab until they try it.
Length of Program
Seeking treatment is important because it helps reset the body after detox. The length of treatment after detox can last anywhere from 30 to 90 days, even longer for those who want aftercare sober living. There is usually not enough time to change a person’s mind or body away from drugs or alcohol towards healing within 30 days. For severe addiction and people with dual diagnosis, they often need longer periods of time to begin the process and follow-up care should include sober living for those who need longer to get help.
Finding help is hard, but it should not take a person too long to find treatment. Asking too many questions can keep a person in denial and away from the reality of seeking help. After a while, it is too easy to push it away and decide nothing is a good fit, so why bother. Ask for help landing on the right program, talk to family and friends, and call around. The right place is right around the corner, waiting for you to get started.
