Making the decision to begin the path to recovery is one of the most important steps you can take in your life. But how can you make sure that you’re on the right path?
As you review your treatment options, here are some key factors to keep in mind.
Having caring and thoughtful staff members on your side is a crucial element of any recovery plan. You need to work with people who want to see you succeed – and don’t just see you as a number. You should be able to tell from your first discussions with staff whether you feel like you are in good hands.
- Thoughtful Assessment & Diagnosis
Any solid recovery plan begins with a thorough, thoughtful evaluation by an admissions counselor. Even if you feel like you know what you want treated, trust the experts and the process. You might find out that you actually have a dual diagnosis – of addiction and a behavioral health disorder – or that your “drinking problem” has actually reached the level of full-blown addiction.
- Customized Treatment Levels
Once you have uncovered your diagnosis, staff members should create a customized treatment plan to address your particular needs. Make sure you choose a treatment facility that has flexible options to work with your life.
- Transition Support
The real test of treatment comes after you finish. It’s critical that staff members work with you to create a solid after-care plan. Whether you need to enter a sober living facility or begin working on vocational training, you can work with staff to build a successful future – clean and sober.
- A Strong Alumni Network
There’s no better proof of the strength of a treatment program than its alumni. Look for an organization that has already helped people just like you build successful new lives in recovery. One day soon, you could be joining them!
