Drug Rehabs in Florida

When Choosing the Right Drug Rehab there are so many different areas to consider but here is three.

Nov. 25, 2008 - PRLog -- Drug Rehabs can be very expensive so we want to educate you on how to choose a facility that can be very effective and at the same time not financially damaging. Drug or alcohol treatment facilities that are $15,000 or $30,000 for 28 days may be very effective. However, studies are showing that the longer a person can remain in treatment the greater the chances of success. With that being said, if you can find an effective 90 day program at that cost, you are ahead of the game. So where is a program that offers 90 days of treatment for 15,000 to 30,000? There are a few out there but we will mention one that stands out. At Transformations Treatment Center our clients have experienced tremendous success.

The next area we want to help you explore is the experience of the treatment team behind an organization. Are the therapist licensed? Do they have a Medical Director of staff? Are the therapists in recovery from drugs or alcohol dependency themselves? These questions are just the top of the iceberg but they are a great starting point when speaking with someone at a treatment facility. Many say a facility is only as good as its staff and that is why you want therapist that are determined and motivated. You want the therapist to client ratio to be no more than 8:1. Anymore than that it becomes a little less intimate and therapists are focused on the workload rather than the clients. You also want to know if they are licensed because in the state of Florida there are very strict guidelines for Addiction Counselors and they are under more scrutiny. You do not want just anyone who is still in school or just recovering from drugs themselves doing intensive therapy.

When choosing a place to get help for chemical dependency what is the treatment programs aftercare program look like. What aftercare do they offer? Do they plan where the client goes after they leave treatment or is the client on his own and left to fail? Are connected with Intensive Outpatient programs that they work closely with? Is there Transitional Housing available? You want to ask facilities who they send their people to and why and then you want to do your own research on the places they refer to. Here’s a quick suggestion, ask the continued care person or discharge planner if he or she has visited the places their clients are going to. If they say they have not been there then you may want to hang up the phone and call somewhere else.

I hope that this has helped you in your search to find a great treatment program. There are many to choose from so ask a lot of questions and be confident before choosing.
