Anyone who needs abuse drug rehab should look into the possibility of getting help in a local treatment center. The process can get started as soon as the addict is willing to take action and do something about their problem. From there, I would suggest the following:
1) Call local drug rehabs and find out what you would need to do to get into treatment there.
2) Call any funding agencies and see if you qualify for funding through the state government, etc.
3) Call your insurance company and see what your out of pocket expense would be for inpatient rehab, which treatment centers they support, and what types of treatment they support, such as outpatient, inpatient, counseling, etc.
4) Figure out what form of treatment the addict is willing to pursue. For example, many people are too scared or intimidated to go to an inpatient rehab, and therefore will only agree to doing outpatient or private counseling. If so then this might narrow down your search options.
Only after you have gathered all of this information can you make a decision about what type of treatment is needed and where the addict should go.
Now here is the key when it comes to choosing a drug rehab: it does not matter much where you go.
The type of treatment can make a big difference. But the actual location or brand of rehab you choose is largely irrelevant. The details are not so important as you might think they are. Most drug rehabs are fairly similar as far as mechanics goes, and the main differences are in aesthetics. The outcomes are not determined by how much the place costs per day.
To put things in perspective, here is a list, ordered by most important factor to least important factor, regarding what helps keep people clean and sober:
1) Level of surrender that the addict has. Willingness to take real action, to try anything that is suggested.
2) Ability to take action and follow through with recommendations.
3) Willingness to try any level of treatment, including inpatient rehab or even long term treatment.
4) Length of stay in rehab (longer is generally better, but not as huge a factor as one might think).
5) Quality of rehab center.
6) Choice of rehab center.
In other words, which drug rehab you choose to go to, and the quality of that rehab, are almost completely irrelevant as to whether or not someone will stay clean and sober. Should they go to rehab? Definitely. It just does not matter much which one.
