How to Choose a Rehab Center

by Ella Wilson Love to write
Over 130 people die in the U.S. from opium overdose every day, the National Institute on Drug Abuse says. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that the economic burden of prescription opioid misuse alone is at $78.5 billion a year, which covers the loss of productivity, criminal justice involvement, expenses for healthcare and addiction treatment.



With more than 14,000 drug treatment locations in the country, the ABC News says, it can be hard for patients to find the rehabilitation facility that’s right for them. If you have undergone opiate detox at home but would like to seek out rehab to continue the treatment, then evaluate your options. Here are helpful steps to keep in mind.

Know the basics

When it comes to choosing a specific Arizona rehab, you’ll want to start with the basics. Think about the setting and the length of time that you’ll need for the treatment. For the setting, decide whether you’ll attend the treatment full-time or part-time. For the length, this refers to the length of time for which you’ll receive treatment. Some programs last for a few days, but other programs last for months or even a year.

Consult a doctor

Get to a substance abuse doctor. The doctor will assess your physical condition and recommend the type and length of the treatment you need. If your addiction is severe, then expect a longer length of treatment. By knowing your condition, you have a clearer sense of the type of Arizona rehab that you should look for.

Read up on the process

Know what to expect when you get treatment. There are four steps of the rehab process and these include assessment, detox, therapy and aftercare. Find out what each step entails so you’ll know what to expect when you enter the program.

Ask about the program

When you start checking out treatment programs, you’ll need to ask questions to find out which ones are right for you. If you started to undergo opiate detox at home, but find that you don’t have the help or support you need to continue with the treatment, then pick a program that’s going to factor that in. That’s why it’s best that you choose a rehabilitation facility that offers a program tailored to your specific situation and needs.

Consider your condition

If you have co-occurring disorders—you suffer from depression along with the addiction—then you’ll need to look for a program that can address those needs. If you only seek out treatment for your addiction, whatever progress you make will be wiped out by your worsening depression. It’s important that you seek out help for both.

Give it a chance

At first glance, you may think you may not fit in, especially on your first visit to the rehab center. But give it a chance. If you want to get better, then getting professional help is a crucial step in your recovery process. The sooner you check yourself into rehab and get help, the higher the chances of a successful recovery.
