What to Look for in a Successful Drug Rehab
Here are some important factors to consider when choosing a drug rehab program for yourself or a loved one:
Rehabilitation Method - This is the foundation of what the program is about. Does the facility think that addiction is an incurable disease or do they expect results and for program participants to remain clean and sober after completion?
Success Rate - Many rehabs don't bother documenting their recovery rate because there isn't much of one to speak of. Typically, only about 20% of the individuals completely recover from their addictions through most programs, however, we can help you find a facility whose success rate is about four times that, or over 75%.
Length of Program - While typical rehabs are only about a month long, it has been proven that longer-term rehabilitation centers are much more successful. We can help you locate long-term rehab programs that work.
Location - Family members often feel that addicts should remain closer to home for support and visitation, however this isn't always the case. In fact, it is usually better for the person needing rehabilitation to go to a program out of his or her immediate environment to make the primary focus on getting better and not having distractions during the treatment process.
Cost - While finding a successful drug rehabilitation program may cost a fair amount of money, there are rehab centers out there that are much more cost-effective and affordable in the long-run. We can assist you in locating facilities that are very successful yet more affordable than most other long-term treatments.
Licensing and Certification - Ensuring that the program is properly licensed in the state is important as well as knowing the staff qualifications and certifications. Experienced counselors who have a successful track record and who can relate to the individuals seeking help is a must.
Intervention - Is the person you're trying to help not willing to go to a rehab program at this time? We can assist you with more information about successful interventions and, if necessary, connect you with experienced intervention specialists who are skilled at getting people to agree to go to treatment.

Withdrawal and Detoxification
For a rehabilitation program to be considered successful, there must be some method of addressing and handling the withdrawal symptoms and physical cravings for the alcohol or other drugs. It is essential to the overall recovery process.
Many addicts fear the withdrawal symptoms of the drugs and therefore don't seek the help they need, but we can help locate resources that are experts at handling this. Find out which treatment practices can do this effectively.
Life Skills Education and Counseling
Of course detox alone is very rarely enough, and successful education and counseling is necessary. There are many different approaches to this part of the rehabilitation process, and we can help you learn more about various types of counseling and education practices at rehabs across the country.
This is the part of most treatment programs that helps the individual to discover the underlying reasons of why they started using alcohol or other drugs in the first place. By locating this it is then possible to learn how to find solutions to problems in life that don't involve these substances.
Relapse Prevention and Aftercare
Aftercare is an important part of the recovery process. Each treatment center may have its own way of conducting follow-up and offering support after completion. Some of the keys to preventing relapse occur within the initial treatment setting but then applying what was learned is essential. It is necessary to address important areas of life in the discharge planning and aftercare program that include personal health and fitness, friends and associates, groups and hobbies, family, faith/spirituality and helping others.
