Drug Rehab FAQ

What is Drug Rehab?

Drug rehab is a term that applies to any alcohol and drug addiction treatment facilities that focuses on the detox and treatment of those who are struggling with drugs of addiction. Young or old, men and women, first time in treatment or many times after the first, all will experience the same basic treatment because the goal of drug rehab is the same for everyone: to break the physical and mental addiction to drugs and begin a new life without drug and alcohol dependency.

Does Drug Rehab Work?

Yes. Studies have shown that drug rehab is highly effective. In areas where drug rehab attendance is tracked, drug rehab attendance reduces the number of visits to the emergency room that are drug related, lowers the crime rate in the area and increases the employment rate. When you choose drug rehab, you are choosing treatment for a medical and chronic disease. Treatment, over non treatment, is always the best option.

What Kind of Drug Rehab is Right for Me?

Finding the right drug rehab to suit your needs is perhaps the most crucial first step after making the decision that you need help and are willing to accept it. Take a look around at the different inpatient and outpatient facilities available to you, find out what kind of treatment amenities they provide and choose the one that has the most to offer. You may not know exactly what you’re looking for in a drug rehab right now, but the more they can provide for you to choose from, the more likely you’ll find what you need.

How Can I Afford Drug Rehab?

Some worry that they won’t be able to afford the cost of drug rehab. They may have dependents who depend upon them or a job that they simply can’t leave. In these cases, outpatient drug rehab is available, a form of drug treatment that allows you to maintain your responsibilities and still receive the treatment that you need.

For those who need inpatient treatment but shy away because of the bill, let’s look at the financial breakdown. Consider how much money you spend every month on your addiction. How much money is lost because you can’t make it to work or lose your job due to poor performance because your addiction to drugs and alcohol? How much money do you lose paying for the mistakes you made both legal and financial while you were under the influence? How much money are you costing yourself in lost opportunity—not going back to school to get a better job or being passed over for a promotion because it is clear to everyone around you that you won’t be able to handle it?

Consider, too, the costs of drug addiction that have no dollar amount. The lost trust between you and your spouse or significant other, the lost time spent with your children, nieces and nephews, the lost respect of long time friends. When you add up all these costs of drug addiction, it is difficult to find a bill for drug rehab that won’t pay for itself in spades.
