How do you choose the right Drug Rehab?
Far too many people will choose a drug rehab center for themselves or their loved ones purely based on convenience of whichever drug rehab center is physically closest to them or even worse which is the cheapest! Unfortunately, statistics show that choosing a drug rehab center purely based on geographic location or price is probably the worst way to select what is going to be your best hope of getting yourself or your loved one off of drugs.
AVOID DRUG REHAB CENTERS THAT PUT THE PRICE IN THEIR ADS!
It means that they are more concerned about the price of treatment than the quality of their treatment. Especially if they use words to describe their price like: "Only this amount of $". Please remember you are not shopping for a beauty treatment or a haircut! You should choose a rehab based on their ability to hopefully save you or your loved one's life!

Of course, the task of choosing the right drug rehab center is still not easy even if you understand the importance of choosing the best drug rehab center based on merit and quality of treatment (not what is the most local). The choices of drug rehab centers are simply overwhelming and most people have no idea which drug rehab centers have the highest success rates and which ones are just making incredulous claims about: magic pills or herbal supplements that will cure drug addiction without treatment, books that promise a cure, or some type of instant cure (also called rapid or ultra-rapid detox).
The National Alcohol and Substance Abuse Information Center (NASAIC) was created over 15 years ago with the single mission of taking the guesswork out of finding the leading drug rehab centers for you or your loved ones. We can also provide you with a list of drug rehab centers that are local to you. We understand that some people have personal reasons to go to the closest drug rehab, even when they know that their chances for relapse will often be far greater.
What Happens in Drug Rehab?
The best drug rehab centers follow up a patient's initial detoxification with long-term behavioral health therapy in order to create the best chance for a successful lasting recovery from drugs. The best drug rehab centers will utilize all of the treatment options below in helping their patients:
-Detoxification- The expulsion of the body’s remaining toxins is necessary to start the patient off with a clean system.
-Psychological Counseling- To better understand the severity and origin of the patient’s addiction, exploratory therapy should be conducted. This will enable both doctor and patient to get to the root of the addiction and help the patient develop better, non-addictive strategies to deal with their problems.
-24/7 Medical Care- Some of the withdrawal processes which patients go through can be very painful and potentially deadly. A staff of physicians that are trained in drug addiction treatment should always be on hand to step in, should any medical problems materialize.
-Education- Once detoxification and initial psychoanalysis is completed, an addiction specialist should be there to explain to the patient: what happened during the withdrawal process, what happened to their body during the course of their drug abuse, and what’s going to happen when they get back out onto the street. If a patient is mindful of the biological and cerebral elements of drug use, they’ll be more inclined to resist post-rehab urges.
The Challenge of Chemical Dependency in Drug Rehab
By providing education to the patient regarding their brain’s role during drug use, they will have a better chance to maintain a lasting recovery from drugs. Strength of will is indeed a powerful thing, but it can often be overmatched by the complexities of chemical dependency during drug addiction. The best quality drug rehab programs know this and will prepare their patients for what to expect after their drug rehab when their brain (or a so-called friend) tries to get them to use drugs again.
Life after Drug Rehab
Once a patient has successfully completed a quality drug rehab program, they may want to still consider outpatient counseling, support-group meetings, seminars, etc. that will help them stay on the right path in the future. A quality drug rehab center will have all of these contacts for you, if you decide that you want to make use of any of them at any point after your drug rehab.
