You’ve made a choice to seek help from an addiction treatment center either for yourself or a loved one. Now there is a staggering amount of options to choose from for both programs and centers. You might also be exhausted from looking for the right answer to choose. It is important to ask yourself questions that will help you decide on the right facility for you or your family member.
Here are those questions to think about when choosing a program:
What are the results that you are expecting from rehabilitation?
Different drug rehabilitation programs will consider different factors for success. Before choosing a facility, ask yourself the specifics on the results you are expecting. Write them down and share them with a trusted family member who can help you with this decision. It always helps to bounce ideas off of a friend or family member. Sometimes they may know us better than we know ourselves.
Some programs consider success to be when a person continues to attend meetings or seek help and support even after the program ends. Other facilities consider simply the completion of the program as a success. Additional factors may include continued sobriety outside of the program or milestones such as gainful employment or improved upon relationship with family and friends. Or even a combination of these things.
Decide for yourself your own success factor and what you want from a drug rehab. Kansas City has many programs to choose from– ours, hopefully being your choice.
