According to SAMHSA, about 21.2 million people needed treatment for substance abuse in 2018, but only 17% actually received help. 

Deciding to go to a rehab facility for addiction treatment is a brave decision. When starting this process, you’ll notice that there are a lot of rehab facilities out there, and choosing the right one for you can be overwhelming. This is why at Enlight Treatment Center we stress the importance of learning how to choose the right rehab facility. 

How To Choose a Rehab Facility

Finding the right rehab facility for you requires some assessment. 

Is the facility licensed and accredited? Does the facility offer treatment specific to your needs? How far is it from your home? Here are some considerations on how to choose a rehab facility:

1. Accreditations and Licensing

Accreditations and licensing were implemented to help regulate rehab facilities. Accreditation proves that a facility is legal. It also shows the available amenities and facilities required to treat clients.

When searching for a rehab facility, look out for the Accreditation by The Joint Commission Behavioral Health. This is one of the most recognized accreditations for rehab facilities.

2. Type of Programs Offered 

The type of rehab programs a facility offers also matters. The main types of programs offered are:

  • Detox
  • Inpatient
  • Partial Hospitalization 
  • Outpatient 
  • Aftercare 

Detox and inpatient treatment are a great way to start your recovery journey. Detox helps rid your body of drugs and alcohol safely. Inpatient treatment addresses the mental & emotional component of addiction. If you are unsure whether or not your addiction requires inpatient treatment, give us a call to find out. 

3.   Specialties 

Many rehab facilities only offer treatment for addiction. Often addicts experience mental illness and addiction at the same time. If you battle mental illness and addiction you will want to go to a dual-diagnosis rehab. 

4. Treatment Offered

There are different treatment methods and modalities for substance abuse. This includes the 12-step program, therapy, holistic treatment, medication assisted, faith-based treatment, and so on. Some facilities offer only one or two treatment approaches, while some offer varieties.

Addiction is different from person to person, and you don’t want to go to a facility that offers one type of treatment for all clients

It is best to choose a facility that offers treatment methods tailored treatment to your specific needs.

5. Gender-Specific or Co-ed

Before you choose a rehab facility, ask these questions: Do you want to be around people of your age, religion, or sexuality? Do you prefer a co-ed or gender-specific space? Some facilities only work with specific sexuality, age, religion, or faith. Select a facility you find comfortable.

6.   Amenities 

A comfortable and structured environment is the best place for recovery. Besides beautiful views and comfortable rooms, some specific amenities matter to people. They include meal options, recreational spaces, exercising spaces, meditative spaces, and cleaning options. Go for a rehab facility with amenities you prioritize.

7. Staff To Patient Ratio

Getting the attention you need and deserve is important when going to rehab. At Enlight Treatment Center we have a 3:1 staff to patient ratio. This allows us to pay close attention to each and every client.

8. Cost and Insurance 

Another vital factor for many people is cost. Cost varies based on the treatment center, type of treatment offered, the length of stay, and many more.

Fortunately, most facilities offer treatment covered by insurance. Talk to the rehab facility to know the type of insurance they take and how much your insurance covers.
