Choosing an inpatient treatment center
Often choosing the right inpatient facility simply comes down to asking the right questions. So what are the questions that you should be asking?
Does this facility specialize in certain addictions?
It can be critical to your recovery that you identify a center that has worked extensively with your specific type of addiction. In the case of dual diagnosis (where the patient has both an addiction disorder and a mental health disorder), this is especially important. Facilities will need to have specialized staff to treat these disorders, or else the patient runs the risk of both disorders worsening.
What types of therapy are offered?
All rehabs centers are going to offer some form of individual and group counseling sessions. However, there is a wide array of approaches to therapy that range from traditional to cutting edge alternatives. Therapies such as yoga, art therapy, equine therapy, etc. may prove critical to your chances for recovery, or they may not appeal to you in the least.
Which are the therapies that this facility is licensed and credentialed for?
Make certain that the help you are receiving comes from qualified professionals. The sad fact is, some facilities do not meet even the minimum requirements. They can end up being a major step backward, rather than the beginning of a new life.
What are the payment options?
Is your insurance provider accepted by this facility? What if you are uninsured? What are the alternatives for payment in those situations? Be sure you know what you are obligating yourself to financially.
What is the aftercare program?
Aftercare can be an essential component of remaining sober. It is important that you discuss what will happen once the inpatient portion of your recovery is completed. Altus Treatment Center is pleased to work with community organizations and neighbour treatment facilities to provide ongoing patient care after they have been discharged. It is collaborative effort that can make all the difference to a patient leaving the care and security of a treatment center, like Altus.
