Another great tool is the internet, of course. There are various centers to choose from. You will need to have some data gathered together before you begin working the phone on this one. You need to know drug of choice and whether you are seeking long term or short term care. Are you looking for a 12 step program or would an alternative type program benefit the most? You will want to speak with certified counselors. What is the success rate of the program? How is their success rates tracked? Also, you need to know how their program works, the structure of the program is crucial. Do they handle both the body and the mind, which are equally important factors in the full recovery of yourself or your loved one? Have a pen and paper handy for every call. The primary focus should not be the cost; the best programs are not free. Most state funded drug and alcohol treatment centers are not the best choices to make. You’ll find they do the very minimal they can to help and are usually located in the worst sections of town and only serve to detox the person. There will be minimal aftercare, if any.
In conclusion, when seeking alcohol and drug addiction treatment centers, be honest. Be diligent. Don’t let cost cloud your decision and be persistent. Remember, this decision may save a life.
