Selecting a Good Rehab Centre
Although there are many different approaches to rehab, choosing the right centre is paramount if the affected person is to succeed. Some of these are as follows:
- Some centres will attend to outpatients while others will most certainly want to keep the person in as a patient. Residential programmes are much better for the seriously affected since the whole treatment is concentrated. Sometimes it is not possible for a person to stay in a residential setting but we can offer advice for those who have enquiries, so give us a call.
- Different centres will certainly have a different level of comfort so the more one pays, the more luxurious it will be. Some centres will require people to share a room but the high-end centres normally provide single rooms.
- Some of the rehab centres will be one sex only, while others will mix males and females. It really depends on what the individual wants or needs.
- Older people may not want to be in a rehab with younger individuals, so the age limit is usually 18 and over. There are specialist centres for younger people too.
- Those who want to be out of the country for their recovery can choose to visit a centre abroad. It sometimes costs less, so this is one choice that should be investigated.
- Different rehab centres will have different types of treatment. Some will follow the 12-step programme that Alcoholic Anonymous follows, while others will have their own style of treatment. Either can be successful but the important thing to remember is that the individual learns why they are so dependent on drugs or alcohol.
- It is important to note that treatment cycles will differ in terms of length of time. It is vital to fit in with the cycle so choose carefully when deciding which one to choose.
