When you’re looking to enter an inpatient rehab center, you may feel daunted by the myriad of options. With thousands of treatment centers across the country, it can be challenging to sort through the herd. Knowing what to look for in an inpatient program can help you choose a center that’s best in line with your needs. Here’s a checklist of what to consider in your search for addiction treatment.
- Staying Local Versus Traveling
Depending on your situation, choosing whether to enter a local center or choosing a place far from home is a big decision. Many people benefit from being close by their friends and family. At the New England Recovery Center (NERC), we have a team of clinicians and family engagement specialists who can help you and your support network be educated about addiction and keep them involved in your recovery.
On the other hand, sometimes addiction can be fueled by a person’s triggers, which typically stems from the environmental factors at play. Some people beginning their recovery may need to leave unhealthy relationships with friends, family and partners in order to get better. Exploring an inpatient rehab center outside of your usual environment can allow you to focus solely on your recovery without distractions.
- Medically Monitored Detox
Many people start with detox, so it’s helpful to find providers who offer both medical detoxication and residential rehabilitation. This pivotal time in your recovery can be dangerous, so make sure you’re entering a rehab with a team of professionals with experience to help you with this transition.
- A Continuum of Care
Some providers offer a continuum of care which means clients can seamlessly transition from one level of care to another as their recovery progresses. Once you’re stable enough to live on your own and no longer need the structure of an inpatient program, transitioning to an outpatient program or a peer recovery center is a great way to stay on top of your sobriety while focusing on your life, career, and family.
Lastly, the program should help you plan for transitioning out of care including having a safe place to live afterward.
- Insurance Inclusivity
Insurance is the #1 question and concern among people looking for a treatment center. Understandably so with so many changes made to healthcare over the years. Make sure to have a conversation with the admissions team to check on your insurance eligibility and how long of a stay your insurance is willing to cover.
At NERC, we accept all major health insurance plans, from Cigna to United Healthcare and more.
