Top Questions to Ask When Searching for Rehab


If you are searching for an addiction rehab, you may be overwhelmed by all of the options. It is important to select the correct rehab the first time to avoid relapsing.


You may not realize it, but there are rehab programs designed to treat a diverse range of clients. All addictions are unique and thankfully, treatment programs are now uniquely crafted to help treat people as much as possible.


There are a number of questions you should ask when searching for rehab. If you don’t know what to ask before selecting a rehab, you could make the wrong choice for treatment.


  1. Is the rehab Joint Commission Accredited?

By asking about the rehab’s Joint Commission Accreditation, you will learn about its performance and safety-related issues. You need to select a rehab that is safe and secure, and the accreditation will give you some inclination of how safe and secure it is. A rehab that is accredited shows an ongoing commitment to quality care.


  1. How is detox treated?

Not all rehabs offer in-house detox. Some of them provide detox off-site while others give you the chance to do detox under medical supervision. You should find out if the rehab provides medically monitored detox. Detox is often the first stage of rehab and is vital to get right. Detox can be provided as medically assisted with 24-hour supervision.


  1. What programs/treatment are offered when searching for rehab

Your needs for rehab are different to the needs of other clients. Therefore, you need to ensure the programs provided by the rehab aligns with your desire. Undergoing a professional assessment is the first step to getting you on the right program. You should ask if the rehab do an on-site neuro-psych test. This will detect whether there are underlying mental health issues that contribute to your addiction. Not all programs treat underlying mental health issues. If they are not detected and treated, you will continue to suffer from your issues.


  1. What activities are offered?

One of the great aspects of luxury rehabs are the additional activities. Activities enable you to improve your mental physical state, in addition to the therapy program you are undergoing. Activities may include hiking, sports, working out, and much more. All of the activities are designed to help you improve your various areas of our mental and physical health.


  1. What clinical therapy is offered?

A rehab with a wide range of therapy programs provides you with different tools to get better. The tools provided by rehab can address the underlying issues that are present that contributed to your addiction. Tools include Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and more.


  1. What is the staff like?

When searching for rehab be sure to do your due diligence of the staff. A rehab’s staff needs to be capable of working with all types of clients. Rehabs need to understand a client’s mental health and substance abuse problems. Most high-quality rehabs provide staff with high-levels of education and experience. These allow the staff members to provide treatment to improve your chances of long-term sobriety.
