How To Choose a Drug Treatment Center

Sep 9, 2008
A drug problem can affect more than just the person who abuses drugs. Family, friends, and children especially are negatively affected when someone has a drug problem. For those drug abusers that have decided to make a change in their lives, a drug detox center is the best place to go in order to get their lives back on track.

There are a lot of issues that go along with choosing the right drug rehab center for those who need to go and get clean. The drug addict themselves with often not be able to choose the correct drug treatment center for them, so it is up to close family and friends to decide what drug treatment center will be right for them. Most drug rehab centers are not for profit organizations, so you will want to check all of their credentials before choosing the right program.

First, you will want to look at the price. You may be in a situation where the money to get the treatment is coming from the mother, father, or other relative of the drug addicted individual. The problem with looking for the price of a drug treatment center is that often they do not provide this type of information on their websites or in brochures. In order to get an idea of the costs, private facilities that are some of the best in the country with charge $20,000 or more a month. Private and accredited facilities range from $10,000-20,000. You can still find affordable private options for under $10,000 a month, but you will really have to look for these.

There are subsidized facilities and public facilities that you can get into as, well but you will have to be put on a waiting list. This may not be the best choice for those who are suffering severely from drug addiction, but any treatment is better than no treatment.

Another major consideration in choosing the drug treatment center that will work best is the location of the facility. The support of family and friends is a great way to supplement rehab, so the treatment facility should be within a couple of hours from the home of the drug addict. You may also want to look into treatment centers that offer a different kind of setting, such as a farm, ranch, or retreat.

Before you sign up for treatment, you will also want to check out the level and philosophy or care. This will be important for those addicts who can only work with a certain type of person. And of course, the level of care should provide family members with a feeling of ease, knowing that their loved ones are in good hands while they are getting treatment.

As long as you have the time to do a little bit of research before you choose the drug treatment center to go to, you will be able to get the right environment for positive change that you or your family member needs.
