Finding a Drug Treatment Center That Can Help You

When finding the right drug treatment center for your needs, it might be hard to decide what might be an extremely traumatic time for you and your family. When considering the best options for overcoming drug addiction, it can help to review a list of questions that you can run through with your support network to make sure you are making the right decision.

Questions That Can Help You Before Choosing an Addiction Treatment Center

When choosing a drug treatment center that can provide you with addiction help, there are specific questions that you and your support network might need to consider before approaching a drug detox center:

  • Will my health insurance cover me to find a professional drug rehab center? If your health insurance doesn’t cover overcoming drug addiction, you can discuss with the facility whether they accept any alternate payment arrangements to cover your stay.
  • Have I been given another diagnosis the addiction treatment center will need to be aware of? If you’ve been diagnosed with depression or received a specific mental health diagnosis, it will affect your treatment. Choosing a dual diagnosis treatment center might be a better option.
  • What level of treatment will you feel comfortable with? While detox treatments will initially be uncomfortable, it’s worth discussing with a friend or family member what level of treatment you feel comfortable with.

Things to Consider When Visiting a Drug Rehab Center

When you visit a facility or speak to the members of staff, you’ll understandably have some additional questions for the center (or things for you and your family to look out for):

  • Is the drug treatment facility clean and well presented?
  • Are the staff friendly and helpful at answering my questions?
  • Is there 24/7 help on hand? Detoxing is a tightly managed process and requires medical staff on hand all times of the day and night.
  • How long are the treatment programs? Depending on what you can afford or what you are comfortable with, there should be short and longer-term treatments available.
  • Do they offer a dual diagnosis treatment center? If you have a mental health condition, can the treatment facility cater to both your addiction and mental health diagnosis?
  • Are they a residential treatment center? You might benefit from having some in-house help to take you away from potentially harmful routines or to focus on recovery.
  • Is the drug detox center certified? If a center is accredited, it means they are associated with the highest standards of care.
  • Will they offer me a personalized care plan? All centers should be able to cater to individual needs and provide you a tailored recovery plan.

Enlisting the help of a trusted member of your support network will help you to ask and answer all of these questions.

  • I didn’t notice any weaknesses during my stay. They have an amazing team here at CBH. I never feel judged, I’m able to be open and vulnerable. I trust the whole treatment staff care about my sobriety. I truly feel the care from all staff members. They truly show that they care about me and my sobriety. I never feel pressured or rushed. Everyone on staff gives me respect. All staff members are always friendly, hear me out and are very professional.

  • I came to California Behavioral Health when I was finally at the point where I thought life was no longer worth living. Once I got to CBH my whole life changed as I have never met more caring people in my whole life.

  • The kitchen staff not only makes delicious food, but they take care of my dietary requests also. They go above and beyond to not only provide what I need but also what I want. The nursing staff here always know where I’m at and how I’m feeling. It’s not just a job for them. They show me that they care about my recovery. The doctors here care about my health not just for recovery, but also for when I leave here. The therapists here have been a major part of one of the biggest and best changes I’ve ever made in my life, for my life. My experience here has not only helped me to recover but also provided me with tools to remain so when I return home. Thank you for helping me find myself and for helping me to realize that I like myself and am excited about being myself, strong and with no slavery to addiction. This is an amazing place! I don’t know how you found such awesome employees. I never once heard a negative word come out of their mouths. Always happy and outgoing, even when some of the guests were being d-bags. This place is awesome, great staff, good activities and the food is so good.

  • Let me start by saying that this place has saved my life as I had been struggling with alcoholism since getting out of college. I had tried numerous 12 step programs and always experienced somewhere that I always struggled to relate with. Once I arrived at California Behavioral Health, they welcomed me with open arms.

  • I personally feel I was given the best treatment possible not just for my alcoholism but my underlying concerns as well. I am very grateful for the chance I was given The atmosphere has always been positive and up lifting and for the most part the participants have kept me laughing to the point my jaws hurt. I’m grateful to be a part of a great group of people and as my time here will expire soon I will carry all of you in my thoughts and ❤️. From the first day I got here I felt comfortable and safe.
