Beating Addiction Starts With the Right Treatment Path
Let’s just admit it: it takes time and effort to beat a drug or alcohol addiction. There is no magic bullet. You will not become clean and sober overnight. However, that should not deter you from seeking the treatment you need so that you don’t continue down this destructive path.
Part of the battle in the fight against addiction is identifying the rehabilitation center and treatment plan that’s best suited to your addiction and your personal needs. It’s not a one-size-fits-all deal. Each center has a different specialty, from the type of addiction they treat to the programs they offer.
It can be overwhelming to go through the barrage of information online and try to pinpoint which program works best for you. At Rehab-Finder.Org, our experts are available 24/7 to streamline that process for you so you get placed in the program and center that will increase your likelihood of lasting success.
Let’s discuss the things you might consider when finding the right treatment path for you.
Knowing When It’s Time to Seek Help Is the First Step
The first step is always acceptance that you have a problem. Many people deny that their drug or alcohol use has a detrimental impact on their quality of life or their health. If you’re considering seeking treatment, we applaud you for your strength and your determination to get well. This is why Rehab-Finder.Org exists. We want to help you enter the best program at a great center so that you can beat the odds and become drug-free for life.
What are some signs that you might have a serious drug problem? Depending on the particular substance you’re abusing, the physical symptoms may vary. However, some of the common signs that your addiction has reached a critical level are as follows:
- Your entire focus is on scoring your next high or getting a drink.
- You’re missing work or school to get high or drunk.
- You’re abandoning your family and friends and favorite activities.
- You’re neglecting your home and your appearance to the point that everything is a mess.
- Your social circle now includes shady characters, including other users and dealers.
Bottom line: the substance you are abusing now controls your life. Every aspect of your life. It’s the beast you feed at the expense of everything and everyone you used to value and love.
Isn’t it time to kick that beast to the curb?
Call us at 877-251-4813 and let our experts help you find the treatment plan you need.
What You Want to Consider When Selecting a Treatment Path
There are many options to choose from when it comes to rehab facilities and treatment plans. In general, there are two things you need to carefully evaluate.
- The Program Effectiveness Rate: Often you can find some statistics on how successful program participants have been in remaining clean and sober post-release. This should give you an idea of whether or not this particular center is worth the money and effort.
- The Aftercare Services Provided: Completing rehab is just the beginning. In order to stay clean and sober for the long haul, you need proper aftercare. Review the types of post-release programs and resources that will be available to you. This is necessary to ensure your success.
The other considerations will vary based on the type of substance dependency and your personality, as well as any other conditions (physical or mental illness or disabilities) you may have that could impact your treatment plan. Each facility offers different programs that could include therapeutic activities, group therapy, holistic treatments, 12-step programs, and more.
There are some programs which do include medicinal therapy, such as Methadone or Naltrexone. It is important to discuss all options, especially if you would prefer not to be exposed to more drugs.
Our Rehab-Finder.Org experts await your call to discuss the various options provided by our vast network of outstanding rehabilitation facilities.

How to Prepare for Rehab
Once you’re ready to go to rehab, you need to mentally and physically prepare yourself. This is going to be a change from the lifestyle to which you’ve become accustomed. You’ll be learning how to refocus your energies and interests into new areas while ridding your body’s dependency on the substances you’ve been using.
Your family and friends are your support network and you are going to need them during both this time and as you return to normal life.
One of the harshest realities you’ll face is the detoxification process. Withdrawal symptoms can be rough initially, but it’s something you must go through in order to recover. You might find that your heart is racing, your sleep patterns are disrupted, and you could have chills or profuse sweating. This is a temporary situation that with the right rehab program you’ll be able to overcome.
Your family and friends are your support network and you are going to need them during both this time and as you return to normal life. Talk to them about your concerns. Ask them to be there for you when you need them. Let them help you as much as possible.
Remember that our Rehab-Finder.Org experts want to help you as well. We’re here to talk you through the process, let you know what to expect, and guide you to the different resources available. Basically, we’ll answer any question you have while we seek the best place for you to begin your recovery.
Don’t wait anymore! Call us at 877-251-4813 to start today!
What Does It Cost to Go to Rehab?
Most people’s minds immediately go to the cost of staying at a rehab center. First, at Rehab-Finder.Org, we work with your insurance provider to identify the type of coverage you have and what facilities accept it. Second, no matter what the cost of treatment, it’s still less expensive in the long run than the habit you’re feeding. Don’t think of it as an expense. This is an investment in saving your life.

Why You Need Rehab to Kick Your Addiction
You might be wondering why you can’t just stop using drugs and get clean on your own. While some people go cold turkey without help and do well, others quickly relapse into old habits. Rehab is about more than just quitting drugs. It’s about learning techniques and retooling your mind-set to avoid the need to use again.
Here are three reasons to go to rehab vs. going it alone:
Reason 1—Help With Withdrawal Symptoms: The longer you use drugs, the more your body will crave them. This dependency impacts you both physically and mentally. While it’s necessary for you to get clean, stopping drugs means denying your body what it now believes it needs to function. This can lead to some uncomfortable and even dangerous physical and mental symptoms that are best dealt with under supervised medical care.
Reason 2—Maintaining Motivation to Stay Sober: You’re going to find that it’s easier to slip back into your old ways when you’re stressed or faced with trigger situations. With rehab programs, you’ll learn new coping skills and how to replace your drug or alcohol habit with something that’s healthier for you. Because habits are something that take time to form, entering into a rehab program will give you an environment in which to accomplish this successfully.
Reason 3—Professional Know-How Increases Your Chances for Lasting Success: When you work with experts to beat your addiction, you increase the chances of staying drug free for good. These are people who have worked with others like you and who understand not only how to treat an addiction, but how to change mind-sets and outlooks so that you’re moving in a positive direction.
Rehabilitation means you’ll have the tools and the resources at your disposal to conquer your addiction once and for all. We would love to talk to you about how we can help you get into the best treatment center and start on the road to recovery now.

The Rehab Experience: What You Should Expect
Nearly everyone who calls us has some questions and some trepidation about what to expect when they enter a rehab program. Here are some of the frequently asked questions that may be running through your mind:
1. What type of treatment will I have? There are many different types of treatment options available. Some are 12-step programs. Others are centered more on holistic healing or faith-based treatment. You might work with counselors in one-on-one sessions and other times participate in group therapy sessions where you’ll interact with others who are on their own road to recovery. Some programs offer therapeutic activities like nature walks, horseback riding, yoga, or hands-on crafts and art.
2. What is a dual diagnosis? It’s not unusual for someone who is addicted to drugs to have multiple issues going on at once. For example, you might also suffer from anxiety, depression, mania, extreme mood swings, or a host of other issues. These could be issues brought on by repeated drug use or they could be underlying issues that previously existed and contributed to your addiction. Either way, it’s imperative that you treat them both so that your recovery is successful. Learn more about dual diagnosis.
3. What happens to my family during my treatment? This depends on whether or not you are participating in an outpatient program, in which you’ll likely sleep at your own home, or in an in-patient/residential program where you’ll live at the facility throughout your treatment. Your family’s support is going to be crucial for the long haul. While they may have a more active role if you’re living at home, you will still need to see them when you’re at the facility. These people will be your safety net once you return to normal living and participate in aftercare programs. Many centers offer family support programs to help them best understand and cope with the impact of your addiction and how to help you maintain a clean lifestyle.
4. How long does rehabilitation take? It really depends on you and how motivated you are to succeed. However, it’s not a process you want to rush. Some people participate in short-term programs that are three to six weeks, followed by aftercare, such as participating in a 12-step program. Other long-term programs can last anywhere from six months to a year. You need to be open to what option is most likely to provide you with the best possible outcome, which is continued clean living.
5. Will I be able to leave the treatment facility to attend family events or overnight? Each facility has its own rules with regard to visitations and leaves. The most important criteria is whether or not you’re ready to expose yourself to situations that could cause you to relapse. This is a great question to ask our counselors when you call us.
6. What can I bring to an inpatient or residential program? It will depend on the center and your individual treatment plan. Again, we can help you sort out these details when we work on your placement.
7. What if the best place for me is far away? Depending on your addiction, your other physical and mental needs, as well as your insurance options, the best rehab center for you might be in another city or state. We will help secure you transportation if this is the option you choose.
The rehab treatment process varies from person to person. There are some common elements that you might expect.
- Your Arrival: You’ll be welcomed at the center by your medical team, who will be working with you throughout this process. They’ll get a more detailed history from you, examine you, then explain your treatment plan and what to expect during your recovery process.
- The Detox Experience: The first hurdle is detoxification. Here you will undergo the process of ridding your body of drugs. Since there can be physical and mental symptoms from withdrawal, your medical team will carefully monitor you and provide the resources needed to remain as comfortable as possible.
- Rehabilitation Begins: Once your system is drug-free, the work begins to keep you that way for good. Your treatment plan might include any number of approaches and activities designed to help you find the right strategies to stay clean and sober.
- Aftercare: When treatment is over, you’re not without your support system. Your treatment will transition to aftercare. You’ll find the resources you need to stay clean and prevent relapse.

Leaving Rehab: Your New Life Begins
It’s both exciting and scary to leave rehab! The world is now filled with opportunities that you had once denied yourself because of your addiction. You can start a new career, go back to school, embark on exciting new hobbies or passions − whatever you’re called to do. During your time in treatment, you likely engaged in some self-reflection to better understand you and what inspires you to achieve your goals. Now you get to act on your dreams, but only if you stay clean and sober.
As people leave rehab, they often have questions about what’s next. Allow us to answer some of the common ones, in hopes that it will help you grasp that there IS hope.
- Is it really possible to stay sober? Yes, it is possible to avoid returning to your old ways. In fact, that’s what aftercare is for—to provide you with the resources and support you need to stay on the path to recovery and clean living for good.
Sponsors are a great support system. These are individuals who, like you, have undergone the rehab process. They are people who, like you, have been in that deep, dark pit of despair from drug or alcohol abuse. They know how to get out and stay out. They want to help you do the same. Over time, you’ll develop a relationship with this person based on trust and will find that he or she is a light when things look dark.
Perhaps the greatest challenge, but the one that is most rewarding, is identifying what your purpose is in life and how you can achieve it now that you’re in the right frame of mind. Refocusing your energies on this new passion will help you avoid the pitfalls that can lead to relapse.
- Am I strong enough to do this? Yes, you are. Remember, you made the decision to seek treatment and get well. This took courage. Now you’ll need to rely on that strong inner self to avoid those situations that tempt your weaknesses. If you find yourself heading down the same destructive path, you now have resources you can turn to who can block your re-entry into that world of darkness. Whether it’s your sponsor, your family and friends, or our team, there’s someone there who can remind you of how far you came and why it’s important to keep moving in that forward direction.
- I damaged relationships due to my addiction − can I repair them? It’s very true that the things you said and did during the throes of your addiction have lasting impact on family and friends. You will need time to rebuild their trust again. They will need to see you as a changed person, one whose focus is no longer on the substances that trapped them. This will take time and effort on your part to rebuild new memories of you as a person who no longer scares them.
You might have to start slowly. Show them that you are dependable by following through with your promises. Find activities that you can enjoy together that don’t trigger your need for drugs or alcohol. Make time for them by doing things they enjoy or by participating in activities that you neglected when you were high. Over time, they will come to realize you want a different life for yourself and that it’s important to you that they are part of it for the long haul.
- Suppose I relapse − now what? Remember, substance abuse is a habit and one that you cultivated over a long time. Now there is both a physiological and psychological need that you will have to fight against as you continue your recovery. If you do fall off the wagon as they say, contact your sponsor, your resources, or our team immediately. Your support network is there to help you remember why you chose to abandon this substance and why you need to remain clean and sober. If you do find that you’re unable to deal with the realities of society just yet, or that you’ve fallen too far into old habits, don’t be ashamed to ask for help again. We’re here and we’ll find you treatment to get back in the saddle again.
