Substance Abuse Program Selection Criteria to Consider

There are a number of considerations to keep in mind as you look for the most suitable program. Is the substance abuse program accredited? Is the staff professional? Do you feel welcomed at the treatment center? Are the facilities clean, comfortable and safe? What feedback have you received regarding the substance abuse program? What treatment methods are being used?

Substance Abuse Program Levels of Care

The right substance abuse program should also offer different levels of care as different clients have different needs. Good substance abuse program options also offer different structures to choose from depending on the most appropriate option for your specific circumstances – outpatient, partial hospitalization and inpatient programs. Outpatient clients sleep at home each night and otherwise attend to their daily lives but they go to the substance abuse program at specified days and times each week. Partial hospitalization programs consist of clients sleeping at home each night but they spend the majority of the hours of the day at the treatment center. Inpatient clients sleep at a residential-style treatment center and spend 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at the treatment center for the duration of their treatment programs.

The majority of clients are most suited for residential-style inpatient care; however, your substance abuse program staff can help you determine which option may be best for you.

Paying for Substance Abuse Treatment

If affording a substance abuse program has been you deterrent for seeking help, it’s time to reconsider. Many clients are pleasantly surprised to find that they are actually able to afford treatment – residential treatment options included. Ask your treatment center of interest about special options such as monthly payment plans or you can even use your insurance. A number of insurance providers include some form of coverage for addiction treatment. Speak to your insurance company today to find out if you are eligible for full or partial coverage for addiction recovery services.
