You may need a rehab centre for yourself or for a loved one, but you wonder which one is the best.  Choosing the right rehab centre is a difficult but very important process. Nobody wants to make the wrong decision here, there is far too much riding on this choice.

All rehab centres are different and not all of them are as effective, so do some serious research before you choose. Addiction recovery is a very difficult process. For some addicts it may take several tries before they are successful, meaning that the better the rehab unit you can find, the better the chance of success the first time around.

One of the first and most important points in choosing a rehab programme is to make sure that the programme has an excellent follow-up programme after the inpatient residential treatment. A programme needs to be in place for the patient for as long as it is needed, whether it is long-term residential or an extensive outpatient treatment -good follow up will help ensure long-term success.

Finding a programme that offers both group and individualised care is also important. A combination of both approaches is needed to provide the most effective treatment for drug or alcohol rehab. Group care provides a reality check and confirmation that what an addict is struggling with is not unique. It also provides support in the form of relationships with those that are walking the same road. Individual care is more focused on the individual and what they need specifically for their recovery. It covers the reasons for their addiction as well as the tools they will need to stay sober. Look for a rehab centre that makes an extra effort to provide a warm and caring environment. This type of environment is essential to the success of patients, since recovering from addiction can bring so many problems of its own that the patient needs a non-judgemental supportive environment to be able to examine what they are going through.

A rehab centre should also provide ample family follow-up care, not only for the sake of the family members but for the addict too. Studies have shown that when the family is treated along with the addict, their chances of success increase. This is not a solitary disease but can and does affect the entire family unit.

Do not judge the rehab centre by cost alone. While cost may, by necessity, affect the choices you make, do not make the mistake of thinking that cost is a determining factor of the success or quality of the centre. There are many overpriced clinics out there and their only claim to fame is the people who have walked through their doors. Take time to look over their programme and look at their success rate, as well as how good of a fit they are for each individual.
