Making the decision to enter drug rehab is difficult for most addicts, and for this reason, they need to be sure the program provides lasting results. No one wants to do this more than once, that’s for sure. Whether you are in the state of Michigan, or any other state, there are a number of specific questions you can ask a potential treatment provider to help you make an informed choice based on facts. The first thing to do is let go of any preconceived ideas you may already have about what to expect in rehab, and then as questions.

Currently in the state of Michigan, unintentional death rates from drug overdoses exceeds 12.3 per 100,000 residents. According to the MAPS (Automated Prescription System), over 20.9 million prescriptions were written for controlled substances in 2012, with hydrocodone being the most prescribed drug since 2003. The best way to bring down these numbers is to increase education and awareness, while also providing effective, affordable drug rehab in Michigan.

Also, it will be beneficial for addicts to make the right choices when it comes to addiction treatment programs.

To help you and your family choose the best facility for your needs, ask these 10 questions:

Common Michigan Addiction Questions

  • Does the program teach basic life-skills to help the individual function in society?
  • While struggling with addiction, most addicts lose touch with how to tackle daily responsibilities such as cleaning house, paying bills, shopping, interacting with others, holding a job, or going to school. These basic skills are crucial to keep the recovering addict from becoming overwhelmed by daily stress and possibly suffering relapse.
  • Is the program long-term or short-term? Inpatient or outpatient?
  • This is one of the most crucial choices to ensure effective recovery. With most addictions, inpatient, long-term care is the best option for many reasons. It offers a safe environment, 24/7 support, nutritional meals, and a wide variety of program options to promote physical, emotional, and spiritual healing.
  • Is the program traditional, faith-based, or holistic?
  • This is entirely based on your personal preferences. The most effective programs allow you to choose which path you prefer rather than forcing you to follow an approach you are not comfortable with.
  • Is detox available on site?
  • Every facility differs in this option. On-site detox is certainly more convenient and allows a more comfortable transition into the rehabilitation portion of treatment. You also need to know if they administer drugs during detox and choose whether you want this type of treatment or not.
  • Are the staff and program licensed and credentialed?
  • Most facilities are licensed by the state and most staff members are credentialed, but you want to check this out, anyway. Some facilities are CARF certified, which means they are monitored and evaluated by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, which is an independent, non-profit accreditor of drug rehabilitation facilities. If a facility carries this certification, you can be sure it adheres to the most stringent standards.
  • What are the success rates of this particular program?
  • Unfortunately, some facilities misrepresent their success rates. Take time to do some research and learn the facts from reliable sources. Also, testimonials from previous clients can be a good starting point.
  • Does the program include aftercare services?
  • Aftercare services are crucial to a recovering addict as they attempt to reclaim their place in society. There will be good days and bad days, and continuing support and encouragement are valuable assets at this point.
  • Is the program flexible enough to be customized for individual needs?
  • This is a valid concern. You don’t want to be forced into a rigid, one-size-fits-all program. You don’t want to feel insignificant. Make sure the program feels right for you and your needs.
  • What are the costs and are there financial arrangements available? Is insurance accepted?
  • Make sure you understand the financial issues before entering the program. You don’t want to get there and find out you can’t stay because you can’t cover the costs.
  • Does the program include considerations for family involvement?
  • When you leave the security of rehab, your family needs to know how to help you remain on the path to recovery. Some treatment programs provide much needed family counseling services to help your loved ones understand what you are going through and how they can best support you.

Naturally, you have other questions that you want answered before entering a program. If you are ready to choose a Michigan drug rehab, call today and let us help you make the right decision.

Available Michigan Addiction Resources

In most cases, overcoming addiction is almost impossible without help and support. There can be many barriers to recovering from an addiction. Some of these include physical cravings and withdrawal, an enabling environment, and the ability to substitute one addiction for another in normal circumstances. While there are many addiction treatment options available, inpatient treatment helps eliminate the recovery challenges mentioned above. Inpatient treatment options vary greatly depending on location, but many include a variety of treatment types and alternative therapy options. In most cases, there is also a focus on therapy designed to reduce stress, improve concentration, and assist in the overall physical and mental health of the individual.

There are many benefits to seeking inpatient treatment for an addiction in Michigan. First, because the patient remains at the facility, there will be no easy access to drugs or alcohol. This reduces the chance of relapses that are present in outpatient programs. Second, inpatient treatment provides medical supervision, counseling, and professional assistance of some kind 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. This can help ease withdrawal symptoms and address other issues that are common causes of relapse early in the recovery period. Next, inpatient treatment centers provide for all physical needs allowing for a complete focus on the individual seeking care. This includes shelter, a balanced diet, and medical care. Having these basic physical demands met allows the patient to focus entirely on themselves and their addiction recovery. Finally, an inpatient center can foster a support group of those going through similar challenges with addiction, as well as tools for recovery that can be used any time and any place. These can be important aspects of a patient’s transition out of an inpatient facility and back into the general population.
