Things to Consider when Choosing a Treatment Center

As you research potential substance abuse treatment centers for either yourself or your loved one, you will be faced with a seemingly endless list of options. The addiction treatment industry is replete with centers offering all sorts of remedies for your substance abuse problem, many prominent ones even guaranteeing you will be “cured” upon completing their program. Be wary of such promises and keep the following things in mind as you narrow the list and eventually choose a treatment center at which to begin your journey in sobriety.

When we are in active addiction, we sacrifice our values and beliefs for the sake of rationalizing bad acts we commit for the sake of continued access to our substance of choice. Now that you are looking to get sober, you should harken back to those values you once held dear and make sure your treatment center of choice is in alignment with them. For example, if you value diversity and equality in society, you will want to ensure your chosen substance abuse treatment center has a diverse staff and clientele. If you have strong religious preferences, you should check to see if you will have access to religious services during your stay on the center’s campus. At Evolutions, we provide as many options for our clients as is feasible in order to ensure their comfort and serenity during the transition from active addiction to sobriety. You will want to choose a treatment center which caters to your specific goals and needs so that your experience will be most beneficial to you.

You should also be mindful of the specific therapies and methods of treatment used by your center of choice. While innovation in the field of substance abuse treatment is occurring every day, you should choose a center which utilized tested and verified modalities of addiction treatment in order to ensure its efficacy. At Evolutions, we have developed a holistic program of treatment which is customized to each of our clients according to their initial medical assessment, history, and recovery goals. Rooted in established behavioral and cognitive therapies, our program has proven effective for our clients time and time again, and we love nothing more than watching our patients grow and blossom in sobriety. You should inquire as to your chosen treatment center’s success rate before making a decision to ensure your program of choice is an effective one.

The decision regarding which substance abuse treatment center is an important one, as the therapy and education you will receive there is the beginning of your critical early recovery stage. In light of the gravity of this decision, you should be thorough in your research and ensure any question you have regarding both the therapies utilized and environment created are answered before enrolling in a program.
