Choosing Alcohol Addiction Rehab

Are you or is someone you know addicted to alcohol? If drinking rules your life, alcohol addiction rehab may be your best chance at getting sober. There are many options available to help you recover from alcoholism which can make choosing an alcohol addiction rehab a challenging process. We can help you find a program that’s close to your home so that you can attend regular outpatient meetings or we can lead you to a program that is far enough away to allow for a clean break and fresh start—the choice is yours.

Before you make the decision, you’ll have to consider the following factors:

Budget & Cost

The amount of money that you can reasonably afford to spend on alcohol rehabilitation will play a key role when choosing an alcohol addiction rehabilitation program. If your budget is low, you may seek free or low cost treatment options that are close to home to get the most bang for the buck. If you’re on a less limited budget, inpatient programs are available at all cost levels ranging from a few hundred dollars per month to luxury programs that will cost tens of thousands of dollars per month.

Insurance Options

Many alcohol addiction rehab centers will accept insurance and many states require insurers to provide coverage for rehabilitation. If you have insurance, check with your provider to find out what coverage, if any, is available to assist you. Your insurance company can also provide you with a list of rehab centers that accept your insurance. If you don’t have insurance, you might consider purchasing an insurance policy that will cover the cost of rehabilitation or pay for the treatment out of pocket.

Type of Alcohol Addiction Rehab

The severity of the addiction will play a role in helping you to come to a conclusion as to what type of alcohol rehab you will need. Inpatient rehab provides around-the-clock support in a residential setting that typically takes place over a period of at least 90 days. Long-term rehabilitation programs are also available for those who have more severe addictions that require an extended program of care. For mild to moderate alcohol addiction, outpatient rehab can be effective and more budget friendly.

Setting

What are your preferences on the setting? Are you very faith oriented? If so, a Christian alcohol addiction rehab program could provide you with the spiritual foundation that will help you recover. If you’re used to living a luxury lifestyle, a luxury alcohol rehab may be well suited to your recovery. There are many options to choose from including holistic programs which focus on total body wellness and step based programs which are heavily guided by the 12-steps that were coined by Alcoholics Anonymous.

Length of the Treatment Program

Another factor that you will consider when choosing an alcohol addiction rehab is the length of the treatment program. Some programs are only 30-45 days and others are 90-120 days, still others are one year or more. The length of the treatment program that you choose may play a key role in your recovery success so it’s important that you choose a program that will provide a regimen of treatment that is long enough to facilitate recovery. Research suggests that treatment take place over a period of AT LEAST 90 days in order to facilitate behavioral change.
