Choosing The Right Addiction Treatment Program

Two people talk about choosing the right addiction treatment program

Substance use disorder (SUD) is a disease, and, as with any other disease, it requires proper treatment from qualified professionals. Appropriate treatment includes a care plan suited to each individual’s unique circumstances, needs, and recovery goals. Choosing the right addiction treatment program is crucial to your recovery.

An addiction treatment program is essential for lasting recovery. Athens Recovery is a family-owned outpatient treatment center providing comprehensive care in a welcoming, safe, and supportive environment. We understand that asking for help isn’t always easy. Our caring staff sees our clients for who they are, not their addictions, and is here to help without judgment.

What to Consider When Choosing an Addiction Treatment Program

Seeking addiction treatment marks the start of a new way of life. What you learn and the skills you gain in treatment will form the foundation for your long-term recovery, so finding the right program is critical. Every treatment center offers different programs, so you will need to think about your current needs and your goals for recovery.

In choosing an addiction treatment program, consider the following:

  • Do you need to detox?
  • What substance(s) are you trying to recover from?
  • Do you have a co-occurring disorder?
  • What level of care do you need?
  • Does the program use evidence-based practices?
  • What is the duration and intensity of the program?
  • Does the program take a holistic approach?
  • Is the facility licensed and accredited?
  • Does the program include aftercare services?

Location is often an essential factor in choosing an addiction treatment program. For some people, leaving their current environment is best to sever ties to the people and places that put them at risk. For others, a program close to home is better for multiple reasons, including family support, transportation, finances, and daily obligations.

It is also important to consider reviews and testimonials from others who have been through the program because they reflect real-life experiences that can offer insight into its effectiveness.

What to Expect from an Addiction Treatment Program

A common barrier to addiction treatment is fear of the unknown. At Athens Recovery, we take time to explain what to expect from our addiction treatment program so that there are no surprises and you can feel more comfortable.
