When you start looking for drug treatment centers in Broward County, here are a few questions you or your family will want to ask before you choose a rehabilitation service.
What kind of results do you want?
Some programs are aimed at treating your addiction with the assistance of medication such as Suboxone or methadone. That may be your idea of a successful treatment. That, or completing a 30-day program or being able to return home or being able to get work a job again. Decide what kind of results you want and go from there.
What kind of services are on offer?
Not all drug treatment centers in Broward County will offer the same range and type of services. You will need to look at each one and check if they provide the type of program or treatment you need. Do they have the resources—the team and staff, the facilities—to treat you? If you require detox before treatment, can they provide medical assistance for it? Do they offer short-term treatment, long-term treatment or both? Find out.
How long has it been around?
Rehabilitation facilities that have been around for at least five years are a good option to go for. They are certainly a much better option than other facilities that may only have been around for a year. Because dodgy businesses don’t often stay in the business for more than a year or two, the U.S. News says. However, that doesn’t mean all new facilities are sketchy. It just means you need to do more research before you pick one.
What methods do they use?
It’s important that you understand what kind of methods or coping techniques you’ll learn in the course of the program for alleviating your physical cravings. How will they address that? Ask.
