Do you offer personalized addiction treatment?
Every patient has different needs when it comes to their addiction recovery. Make sure that they can meet your needs when it comes to spirituality, fitness and mental health.
What credentials, licenses and affiliations does the rehabilitation facility & members hold?
Always double check that the rehabilitation is state-accredited and consists of a team of licensed counselors, physicians, nurses and therapists.
Do you offer medically supervised detox & inpatient treatment?
If a patient is deep into their addiction or is coming from an intervention you must look for a facility that offers detoxification programs.
Can you offer support for the families of your patients?
Addiction is a family disease and oftentimes families must seek counseling to provide a healthy support system when the patient completes their stay at rehabilitation.
What kind of payments do you accept?
The cost for addiction treatment can be very expensive, especially at a quality facility with a dedicated care staff. Even patients with private insurance may be responsible to pay for a portion of the program. Ask your admissions team about financing offers, payment options, grants & scholarships.

Do you treat co-occurring addictions?
Unfortunately, many people suffering from addiction use drugs or alcohol to treat an underlying mental health issue. You must treat the source of the addiction, as well as the physical addition.
What kind of drugs do you treat?
Do you offer specialized rehabilitation programs?
First responders, veterans and those with chronic illnesses live with PTSD and/or constant pain and have a higher chance of relapse. If you fall under these specific categories, you must select a facility that can cater to your specific needs for long-term success.
Does your program teach life skills to support long-term sober living?
Individuals who have a strong support system post-addiction treatment are less likely to relapse and stay sober for the long-term. Your facility will connect you with support groups, alumni support, a sponsor and a sober network for you to connect with once you leave treatment.
What happens after my rehabilitation treatment is complete?
The completion of a rehabilitation treatment program is just the first step on a long road to sobriety. An aftercare plan is integral and should include placement in a sober living home, as well as therapy, support groups and a sponsor.
