No 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treatment material and adequately funded, while others are overcrowded, understaffed, poorly funded and based on outdated treatment material.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.
