What to Look for When Choosing a Drug and Alcohol Addiction Treatment Center

Making Decision for Addiction Treatment

Addiction to drugs or alcohol is an intensely personal journey and so is rehabilitation and recovery from the illness. For this reason, people select rehab centers for different reasons in order to find the one offering programs that best resonate with them. Some may prefer the traditional approach of 12-Step, whereas others may seek holistic or complementary therapies as an alternative. Ultimately, there is no “one size fits all” approach to addiction treatment.

Questions to Ask When Choosing an Alcohol or Drug Addiction Treatment Center

1. What Types of Programs are Available?

It is important that people understand the treatment they are receiving and can see how the benefits will apply to their unique situation. There are two main types of rehab, residential or inpatient and outpatient treatment. Inpatient care requires patients to remain at the center, whereas outpatients are allowed to stay at home while receiving addiction treatment.

2. What Types of Addictions are Treated?

The majority of rehab centers like CASA Recovery in Southern California offer treatment for the following addictions:

  • - Heroin
  • - Prescription painkillers
  • - Cocaine
  • - Alcohol
  • - Marijuana

We have programs for all types of drug addictions and for alcohol addiction as well, so we can tailor a program to what you are needing. 

3. How Long is the Program?

The duration of an addiction treatment program depends entirely on the individual and their personal needs. Some people may have a mild form of addiction and may only require a short outpatient program whereas others may have been using highly potent substances like heroin for a longer period of time. The important thing is that the rehab program is the right length of time for the individual to heal.

4. What is the center’s philosophy?

This is important because there are very different attitudes towards treatment. People with a strong faith are more likely to find appropriate support on a 12-Step program, whereas others may not have a particularly spiritual biased. The fact is that there are around 15,000 rehab centers across America including CASA Recovery offering a wide range of programs to suit all needs.

5. What is Their Success Rate?

It is always important to ask about any licenses or credentials held by addiction centers before committing to a program. It is also good to enquire as to the success rate as this can tell you how well-designed addiction treatment programs are for patients at the center.
