Looking to find a drug rehab center? Whether looking for yourself or a loved one that is struggling finding a good drug and alcohol rehab can be challenging
Just google “drug rehabs” and look at the plethora of results that come up. It can be overwhelming to say the least.
The important thing to remember is to DO YOUR RESEARCH
There are several amazing drug and alcohol treatment centers ready to help you or your loved ones but there are also several that do a much lesser job posing as credible treatment centers
Make sure you read the reviews. In fact, make sure there are reviews. You wouldn’t go to a mechanic with 1 star or even worse no reviews. The same goes for drug and alcohol treatment centers. Make sure they have several reviews and a good rating on Google and Yelp.
Call and talk to them! If this is a place that you are planning on going or sending your loved one they should be more than willing to take the time to tell you what they do in a thorough and polite manner. If a treatment center doesn’t pick up in 5 rings call another one. These are places that are supposed to be open 24 hours a day to help save people’s lives. Punctuality is a necessity.
Talk to them about family involvement or some sort of family program. Any good treatment center with tell you how they get the families involved and the best ones usually offer a family weekend or day where the family and loved ones of the clients come to work on communication skills and life after treatment
The important thing is to do your research and ask lots of questions. You can tell pretty quickly by people’s attitudes what kind of treatment program they have to offer—if you get a bad feeling, move on. As stated before, there are plenty of good treatment centers who are willing to help you or your loved ones.
