What to Look for in a Treatment Center

While you may not understand what to look for in a treatment center, you know that compassion, trust, and individuality are important. During your search for hope, look for several key indicators in mind, including:

Licensed and Accredited Program

One place to start is by checking to see if a program is licensed by their home state. This means that the program will need to follow federal guidelines and regulations put into place to ensure the best care of your loved one.

While searching for a treatment center, look for a program to be accredited through an agency carefully monitoring care, such as the Commission and Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) or the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO). These accrediting bodies promote quality, value, and optimal outcomes through continuous improvements through their consultative accreditation processes.

Multidisciplinary Clinical Team

An experienced clinical team is essential in the search for a program that fits you or your loved one’s needs. A master’s level clinical team licensed in both clinical addiction and mental health treatment will best understand your loved one’s needs. Working with a fully licensed clinical team can help you or your loved one be supported in the issues you are dealing with, whether that’s substance use, trauma, or mental health. When a team can showcase different specializations on how to approach an individual’s treatment process, the outcomes for sustainable recovery are always better.

Family Program

Recovery is not only about the individual struggling with substance use, trauma, and mental health issues. A program that offers an in-depth family program that runs parallel to your or your loved one’s treatment process can support the entire family unit. Look to see what the program offers for clinical services for the family members as well. Healing the entire family system is critical for the progress of the family unit.

Length of Treatment Stay

Research has shown that longer treatment stays result in better chances of sustained recovery. When you look at the amount of growth that can happen in a day, in a week, in a month, in a year, you may be amazed at the difference more time can make.

Outcome Study and Research

Data-based research is necessary in order to track the effectiveness of a treatment program on a client’s sustained recovery. Outcome studies and research assess and track a client’s therapeutic response while they navigate recovery programs, sober living environments, and re-entry into their communities. Learn more about our outcome study.

Alumni Program

Staying connected after the treatment experience is an important piece of recovery. It creates a sense of trust and understanding. Alumni staying connected to other alumni help keep one another in touch with not only how far they have grown in their process but how far they can go in their future.
