Massachusetts Recovery Options
From outpatient to inpatient programs, from short-term to long-term care, from detox to group therapy, a vast array of options exists for recovery in Massachusetts. Rehab facilities are all different, and while this offers the kind of choices consumers enjoy, the amount of options can feel overwhelming at times. We at Rehab-Finder.Org are always excited to receive your calls, and would be glad to help.
Duration of Care
One of the first things to consider is the duration of the program you need. While most residential centers have short term, 28 day options, there also exist longer options of care lasting 60-day, 90-day, and 120-day. Besides residential programs, outpatient programs are also available, although they are not as long as many inpatient options. While there a variety of issues behind deciding which duration of care is best, typically longer, residential programs have the highest success rates.
Concerns About Cost
While government funded programs exist, it might not be an option at the facility of your choice. Fortunately, most facilities will accept a variety of insurances. If your insurance is not included in one of those, reduced rates and payment programs are available for those who have to pay out of pocket. Opting out of different services to reduce costs is also a strategy that might work at a particular facility.
Licensing and Accreditation
It is easy to access and see what licenses and accreditations the staff and facility have, and this can go a long way in indicating the level of care one can expect from a certain facility. Not only does this provide peace of mind, but can protect you from walking into a bad situation.
Methods and Protocols of Treatment
The details of a program include the methods and protocols of treatment that a facility abides by. The specific combination of these methods is unique to every rehab center. The rehab center could use the popular 12-step method, or some new type of therapy. Counseling and therapy are usually also offered in either group or individual settings.
Facilities also have more specialized features, besides the traits that they share in common with other centers. Dual diagnosis is one feature where the facility treats those suffering from mental disorders, as well as substance abuse and dependence. Some provide care affiliated with specific religious groups and some also provide luxury accommodations.
What About Aftercare?
Aftercare deals with your continued recovery once the program you have joined has finished. There are many options with aftercare, and you should look into what that facility can do to support you in that. On occasion, you might need to continue treatment at different location than where you originally received treatment.
Questions to Ask
In summary, it's important to ask yourself several questions when narrowing down your choices for recovery.
- What duration should I look for in a program?
- What is the specific focus and goal of the program that I will be joining?
- What different types of support will I receive? Namely types of therapy, counseling, medication, and environment are all things to consider.
- Will I be taught life skills and healthy means of coping with life’s stresses and hardships?
