As you undertake the process of finding the perfect treatment program for your addicted loved one, you likely have a number of questions running through your mind. Not sure what to ask first? Make sure you have the answers to the following questions before you move forward with enrollment in any drug rehabilitation program:
- What is your evaluation and assessment process?
An evaluation and assessment at the onset of treatment must be able to identify everything that could make it more difficult for the patient to stay sober for the long-term. This process will be different at every rehabilitation program, so it’s important to get the details up front and find out just how comprehensive this process is: the more extensive, the better.
- Do you offer specialized treatment plans for each patient?
Each patient needs and deserves a course of therapeutic and medical intervention and treatment that is designed specifically to meet his needs. This can only occur when the rehabilitation program takes the time to assess and evaluate each individual patient and identify all the issues that will require treatment. After this assessment, the patient should be offered a unique collection of therapies that will help him to make progress in managing those issues.
- Will you work with my insurance provider?
The cost of treatment is a significant factor for almost every family in search of a drug rehab program. Health insurance companies can pay a large part of the cost of certain services in most cases – if the treatment program will work with the provider. Make sure that your health insurance provider offers coverage for drug addiction treatment – as they should – and then clarify with your potential drug rehab program that they will work with your insurance company.
- What support options do you offer for families?
Family members must learn about addiction, about treatment options, and how they can best support their addicted loved one in recovery. The drug rehab that treats the addicted person should provide opportunities for that growth among family members. Ascertain that support is available to family members and find out what to expect in terms of communication, detoxification, therapeutic treatment for you and the addicted person, and aftercare support when your loved one comes home.
- What aftercare support options do you have in place for patients?
When treatment ends, the work of recovery continues with more responsibility on the patient to motivate himself to stay sober. No longer supported by a completely sober environment and sober peers, it is imperative that the recovering person is armed with an actionable plan to continue his therapeutic growth and avoid relapse.
