rehab selection helpAddiction is a problem that no single culture faces, and can be found across the globe in many countries and societies. The availability of addictive substances is wide spread, and in order to combat the negative and often dangerous effects of addiction, substance abuse treatment programs around the world offer recovery services and treatment options to addicted persons. The methods used by these addiction centers vary, and are designed to approach the problem of addiction from several different angles. Some focus on the chemical relationship of addiction to the brain and body, while others deal with the psychological causes of addiction, helping the addict work through their dependency cognitively, empowering them to be in control of their behavior. Potential clients are free to research individual addiction rehabilitation centers to choose the one that suits them best.

The decision of which addiction recovery center to check in to should be made through personal research and careful selection. The most important thing to consider is what the addicted person’s individual recovery needs are, and which programs treat their specific addiction. A successful addiction inpatient program will offer a proven history of helping substance abusers move past their addictions. Sometimes, the most fitting program is not in the potential client’s immediate vicinity, and requires them to move some distance. However, the inpatient style of residential rehabs will accommodate all of the client’s living needs, and offer them a healthy and dependable support system.

Also important to consider is the length of the program being offered. Addiction effects every demographic, from the working class to high profile individuals, and scheduling needs must be taken into consideration. Typically, an inpatient rehabilitation stay will range from 28 days to 90 days, depending on the intensity of the program. A shorter program will usually allow time for detoxification and counselling services, but some recovering addicts find this amount of time insufficient in completely eradicating their addiction, and opt for a program that offers extended counselling services, a range of therapy treatments and a sober living house, where they can readjust to the pace and expectations of the world while focusing on their sobriety.

Other important factors to consider when selecting an addiction treatment facility are the quality of life the environment provides and how comfortable the potential client will be in their surroundings. Finding the best inpatient drug recovery program can be difficult, and the addict and their family do not have to make the selection alone.

One of the most valuable things a rehabilitation program can offer its clients is the gift of getting to know them and working with their needs. All too often, rehabs become overcrowded and understaffed, leaving clients to fend for themselves when they need personal attention. This is the opposite of what a rehab experience should be. Rehab clients should feel attended to and cared about. They would not have committed to the program if they were not in serious need of help and attention. A quality rehab will tailor their programs to their client's needs in the following areas:

  • Treatment sessions. A rehab's treatment sessions should always be based on their client's needs. Treatment sessions may include anger management, boundaries, panic attacks, codependency and so on. As facilitators and counselors begin to learn where each client's strengths and weaknesses are, they can determine which sessions apply to which client and expose them to material that will help strengthen them against their addiction.
  • Counseling. Everyone has individual counseling needs. In rehab, these needs should be met by assessing whether a person needs more individual counseling or group therapy time, and what direction these counseling sessions should aim towards. If a person has past trauma, they should have the opportunity to receive counseling for it. If a person has anxiety, they need to discuss it with a counselor. Any mental problem a person struggles with should be addressed in rehab with a counselor.
  • Personal space. Everyone has a personal bubble that they do not want invaded. It is important in rehab that clients feel that their personal space requirements are respected and never violated. For some, this may mean that a private room is an absolute necessity.
  • Dietary needs. Everyone has some kind of dietary need. It may be a critical need, such as food allergies, or it may just be to keep a person's body in optimal health. Regardless, a rehab program should care enough for its clients to consider which foods are safe and work best for every client, and adjust their menu accordingly.
  • Recreation. People tend to have very different ideas of what enjoyable recreation looks like. Some people are extroverted and want active, social recreation, such as group hikes and team sports, while others are introverted and crave the solace of a garden or a good book to unwind. Both options should be made available to rehab clients.

rehab disappointmentNo one hopes to end up in rehab one day, but this does not mean you cannot have good memories of your experience in rehab. The time you spend in rehab is meant to be a therapeutic time where you shed mentally unhealthy habits, build new character and coping skills, and take time to focus on you.

However, if you are not careful during the selection process of your rehab, you may end up wanting out before the program is complete. Not all rehabs are created equal. Some are professionally run, based on current treatment material and adequately funded, while others are overcrowded, understaffed, poorly funded and based on outdated treatment material. The difference in the experience between these two types of rehab is night and day. You do not want to invest money into a rehab experience that you will want out of.

The primary reason for the difference in these two types of facilities is that one is privately funded and the other is government funded. How this effects the operations of a rehab is significant. Privately funded rehabs are backed by people who have experience in properly running a business, and have invested their time, money and energy into creating a professional, suitable environment for their clients. Private rehabs are far more likely to demonstrate attention to detail in the personal and dietary needs of their clients, as well as provide proper staffing, individual counselors and quality recreational activities.

Government funded rehabs are a necessary and valuable service, but like all things government funded, they are subject to steep budget cuts, which takes a toll on the staffing, the treatment material, the number of clients per room and per facility, the food and all other accommodations. This causes overcrowding and overlooking of client's needs. At a time where you should be getting deeply in touch with the hurts that caused your addiction problem, as well as your inner strength and coping abilities, you would instead have no privacy, no attention and no personal consideration. Do not regret your commitment to rehab. Learn about pricing plans for a private rehab and receive the treatment you deserve.

professional luxury rehabWhen a busy professional realizes they need outside help in order to battle substance abuse and addiction, choosing a treatment option can be challenging. High profile individuals and working professionals are very involved in their positions and do not have the option of separating themselves from their work. It may be tempting for them to choose a less intensive treatment program for the control they would keep over their schedule, but it is highly recommended they consider their options more carefully.

Modern residential rehabilitation, which involves living on site in a treatment facility for a certain amount of time, has options for the busy working professional. Inpatient executive rehabilitation centers are treatment programs designed specifically for people who cannot be expected to break completely from their work. They take into consideration the type of work a person does and integrate it into the schedule, treatment and accommodations the individual will receive.

At an executive drug and alcohol rehabilitation program, clients will receive a medically supervised detoxification, counselling and guidance through the causes of their addiction, opportunities for therapeutic ventures and activities, and top quality aftercare support. Their continued career success will be accommodated by office amenities, flexible treatment schedules, counseling that focuses on their particular professional expectations and the opportunity to interact with people in similar positions as themselves.

There are executive rehabs in a variety of locations in North America, ranging from Florida treatment facilities, Edmonton rehab centers and beyond. For working professionals who need a certain amount of separation from their lives in order to successfully achieve sobriety, but still need access to their work endeavors, executive addiction treatment is the best option.

rehab suited to lifestyleAddiction is a disease that is found in every demographic of society, and rehabilitation treatment programs are becoming increasingly diverse, not only in their treatment options, but in their lifestyle considerations as well. Inpatient treatment programs that house their patients are available ranging from a government funded level, which include only the basics, to a luxury rehabilitation level which are meant to cater to a higher income bracket. The idea behind a luxury rehab center is to provide high income earning addicts with the surroundings they are comfortable in, and with the highest quality addiction treatment available.

One of the most important considerations in choosing an inpatient luxury rehab facility center is that the environment suits the patient. This will greatly enhance the therapeutic element that should be present in the treatment program. For high income earning individuals, it can be important to find a luxury treatment center that includes upper class amenities so that they don’t have to focus on drastically altering their living conditions when they should be focusing on their recovery.

Quality programming does not necessarily come with a high price tag. More moderately priced rehabilitation centers can certainly provide top quality rehabilitation if they have a proven history of success, accreditation and licensed staff. However, a luxury rehabilitation center is statistically more likely to offer a high quality program as the most current and thorough treatment methods require full funding. The likelihood of regular individual counseling sessions, which are important to the individual care that recovery demands, is also greater at a luxury rehabilitation center.

Choosing between a luxury addiction rehab and a more common rehab should be weighed carefully between financial factors and quality requirements. The higher the success rate of the rehabilitation center, the more likely the program is to prevent relapse, and higher success rates are often found at luxury rehab centers. However, a recovering addict who is burdened with the financial stress of a rehab stay they couldn’t afford can also be more likely to relapse. It is strongly recommended to create a careful budget for rehabilitation before committing to a stay in one.
