Here are a few things that you must ask yourself before you choose a rehab:

Different programs expect different results. Some programs consider a person who keeps attending meetings and having medications. While others consider an individual completing their 30-day program is a success. Hence making sure that the goals of the program is in sync with the service that you expect.

  1. What kind of result expectation do you have from a Rehabilitation?

You must check and make sure that service you receive is the one you came for. Have a consultation with the counselor or psychiatrist or psychologist and make sure that the program meets your goals.  An important way of knowing this is by asking a rehab program how they measure success of the patient and what that success rate is?

  1. Is the program a short-term or long-term one?

A short-term program is the one that focuses on detoxification and can only help the individual through the withdrawal, people who have responsibilities at home and whose family members can keep them only for 30 days opt for the short-term one. The long-term program is the one that focuses on detoxification, which is a dedication comprehensive program that is for 3 months or more.

  1. How is the quality of the program with respect to hygiene and cleanliness?

One must make sure if the program offers good quality of hygiene and cleanliness as this is essential for the better treatment of the patient’s recovery to sobriety.

  1. Does the Rehab promise instant cure or something else that seem unrealistic?

Rehab programs that assure instant cure, you must reconsider. As there is no such thing. Hence it is important to make sure that you educate yourself before of their ‘promised’ way of treatment.

  1. Does the rehab have certified medical staff at all times?

It is extremely important to have certified medical staff trained in rehab care and if are available at all times, around the clock.

  1. Do they have good qualified nurses?

Ask the program if the nurses are certified in rehabilitation nursing.

  1. Does the program have patient care coordinator?

Ask if the program offers care coordinators, who could help coordinate services needed at home and with insurance benefits.

  1. Check or ask for the institute if or not they are licensed or accredited.

In India, the accreditation or the certification process for rehabilitation program is generated from the Rehabilitation Council of India (RCI).

  1. How the program plans on with the treatment of addiction?

Ask the program of their treatment plans and how will they go about with the procedure. Mostly the psychiatrist, clinical psychologist and the counselor play an interactive role in deciding the treatment plan.

  1. Ask if the program’s treatment substitutes another drug in place of what the person was previously addicted to?

Most of the programs while treating addiction use a substitute for recovery. For example, a person recovering from addiction to drugs like heroin or prescription painkillers. The goal here of this program is not to create sobriety but to reduce the harm by giving the individual a prescription substitute.

  1. Are those substitute drugs addictive or harmful?

Some of these drugs could have side effects and knowing about these side effects could help you make better decisions for yourself or your family member. By asking the program what medications they use and why.

  1. Does the program teach the individual life skills to support sober life?

Life skills teaching is an extremely important as the individual might feel good as they leave a rehab program, but they might get tempted to use drugs or alcohol again. Poor coping styles as a result of stress would encourage them to succumb to old habits. Hence it would extremely helpful if the program could include teaching the individual life skills to support sober life

  1. Does the program cater to outpatient care post rehab?

Ask if the program caters to outpatient therapy and home care for recovered individuals. This may help them manage sobriety and prevent relapse into alcohol or drug addiction.

  1. Does the program take genuine efforts to helping and encouraging the individual to make better recovery?

Getting admitted in a rehabilitation program that have the entire medical staff helping and facilitating the individual undergoing a treatment is extremely essential as one is expected to stay in a rehab facility and hence the staff of the program then acts as an active support group for the individual. So making sure that you or your loved one is in good hands with respect to facilitation is extremely important.
