How to Find the Right Alcohol Rehab Center

Selecting the right alcohol rehab center can be one of the most stressful and important decision in anyone's life. An alcohol rehab program has the tools to make an impact on the individual to change their life. Therefore choosing the right one that suits your needs and can effectively addresses your specific medical, physical and mental health issues can make a profound difference between going back and forth to alcohol rehab or you starting a new life alcohol free immediately.

There are several major points addressed below on what to consider before entering an alcohol addiction program.

Choosing Between Inpatient and Outpatient Alcohol Rehab

The individual's lifestyle and severity of alcohol addiction can help assess what their treatment needs are. There is a difference between choosing inpatient (residential) alcohol rehab and an outpatient alcohol rehab.

An inpatient alcohol rehab center requires the addict to come and stay at the facility for an extended period of time, usually 30 days or more. These programs are wonderful because it gives the individual 100% time and commitment towards their recovery. This level of commitment can be very challenging some. Especially a parent with child care responsibilities, a career person with work or a student who attends school responsibilities and need to be close to home during treatment may not be able to commit to a residential alcohol rehab facility.

Outpatient alcohol rehab provides essentially the same treatment program as inpatient, but the individual finishes their sessions and go home or to other activities like work or school. This is a good option for those who need alcohol addiction treatment, but have to maintain responsibilities at home.

Finding an Affordable Option for An Alcohol Rehab Center

It is impossible to put a price on one's health and well-being but the reality for some is money and costs. This is what many individuals consider when choosing an alcohol rehab center. Many luxury rehab centers can be exorbitant and impossible for the working person. Some outpatient and provincial funded residential treatment centers, understand that people have financial constraints and work with them based on their financial situation. There are private insurance carriers that may cover alcohol and drug rehab - and even a growing percentage of employers will help fund for treatment as well.

Alcohol Rehab Centers and Dual Diagnosis Patients

Individuals who have a dual diagnosis or concurrent disorder which is having both a mental illness and alcohol addiction require special treatment that not every alcohol rehab center can provide. In order to receive integrated care properly for both, you need to find a facility that also provide psychiatric care that works with addiction recovery to help provide the most optimum care and treatment.
