Another thing to consider is the cost of treatment. The best way to find out the range of costs for rehabs is to talk to an intake advisor. You can discuss your insurance coverage or your financial concerns and they will help you narrow down your choices to what best meets your needs in the most affordable way. If you are seeking the best value for your treatment dollar, remember: Price can be meaningful only in the context of quality and performance. Also remember that the cost of alcoholism and drug addiction, if not treated, can far exceed the cost of treatment.
When dealing with addiction, the entire family is usually affected and influenced by the addicts or alcoholic’s behavior and actions. Drug abuse and alcoholism affects the entire family, not just the alcoholic or addict. Quite often family members do not realize how deeply they have been affected by chemical dependency. Family involvement is an important component of recovery.
Drug and alcohol rehabs vary in the degree and quality of family involvement opportunities. Some offer just a few lectures and others offer family therapy. Ask if there is any time devoted to family programs and if group therapy is included.
There are no quick fixes for the conditions of drug abuse and alcoholism. Recovery is an ongoing process. The skills one learns during intensive rehabilitation treatment must be integrated into everyday life and this takes time. Some rehabs will offer a follow-up program but only in one location which may make it difficult to use. Rehabs should include a quality, continuing care program that supports and monitors recovery.
