Recognizing that you need treatment from an addiction rehab or mental health program is a significant step, but it’s not all you need to decide.
The next question is what type of program is best for you. Do you need an outpatient or residential program? Do you want to travel for treatment and recover in a new, relaxing environment? Should you assume that a more expensive program has better treatment outcomes?
The truth is that there’s not a one-to-one relationship between expense and quality. The extra money you spend for a luxury facility may not be for things that improve your treatment at all. In reality, you may actually be paying for things that distract you from focusing on your recovery goals.
No matter your budget, you’ll want to check costs before deciding on a program. Does your insurance cover it? If it does, you may pay much less than you might expect for quality treatment.
How long can you afford to stay? More extended addiction rehab is associated with better treatment outcomes so a longer stay at a less expensive facility is likely to be more beneficial than a short stay at a more expensive one. You may also want to choose a program with both residential and outpatient options. Sometimes people will choose to attend a residential program and then transition to outpatient therapy to extend their time in treatment.
You’ll want to determine what you’ll actually be paying for. The most important part of treatment is the therapy and not the amenities. What are the therapeutic models? Is the treatment the program provides evidence-based and custom fit for you as an individual?
A luxury treatment center may or may not base its programming on evidence-based practices. Certain therapies have been proven to reduce substance use and associated symptoms and have also been shown to alleviate legal, medical, employment, and family problems. Some therapies have consistently shown to be effective in mental health rehab. No matter what else a luxury program offers, if they aren’t focusing on evidence-based practices, you’re gambling with your recovery.
