“Truth in Advertising”
Alcohol and Drug Rehabilitation Programs

Our primary goal is to inform the guardian / substance abuse user of credible certified addiction centers before spending thousands of dollars.

“In and out of rehab,” inspires visions of dollar signs for many alcohol and drug treatment centers.

It also represents a sort of mantra, when speaking to addicts or their families.

Treatment centers notoriously fail to treat their patients with a combination of physiological and psychological solutions.

This critical decision takes time, research, patience, and perseverance. Never succumb to false or misleading ads, pressure or deceptive words on a website, video or even a television commercial.

Here are 12 questions to consider when selecting a treatment program:

  1. Does the program accept your insurance? If not, will they work with you on a payment plan or find other means of support for you?
  2. Is the program run by state-accredited, licensed, and/or trained professionals?
  3. Is the facility clean, organized and well-run?
  4. Does the program encompass the full range of needs of the individual (medical: including infectious diseases; psychological: including co-occurring mental illness; social; vocational; legal; etc.)?
  5. Does the treatment program also address sexual orientation and physical disabilities as well as provide age, gender and culturally appropriate treatment services?
  6. Is long-term aftercare support and/or guidance encouraged, provided and maintained?
  7. Is there ongoing assessment of an individual’s treatment plan to ensure it meets changing needs?
  8. Does the program employ strategies to engage and keep individuals in longer-term treatment, increasing the likelihood of success?
  9. Does the program offer counseling (individual or group) and other behavioral therapies to enhance the individual’s ability to function in the family/community?
  10. Does the program offer medication as part of the treatment regimen, if appropriate?
  11. Is there ongoing monitoring of possible relapse to help guide patients back to abstinence?
  12. Are services or referrals offered to family members to ensure they understand addiction and the recovery process to help them support the recovering individual?

Proceed with caution in approaching drug rehab facilities

Many of life’s decisions take time, research, patience, and perseverance. Searching for the right treatment center is just one of those decisions. Don’t be swept away by websites and words. Be swept away by licenses, accreditation, and certifications. Be swept away by all the scientific studies and information that SAMHSA provides and ask the significant questions that reap the answers you are searching for. Seeking the right help with the right people and facility gives you or your loved one a clearer shot at success. Remember, you are in control of your decision, not the staff or administrators. Control the interview, demand the information, and decide based on the individual requirements that will help heal you or your loved one, not the bogus verbiage of advertisements or the bullying of the administrators.
