If you're looking for a rehab facility, here are a few things to consider.
When you're addicted to alcohol, your body becomes dependent on it. Abruptly stopping drinking can cause serious and sometimes life-threatening withdrawal symptoms. Consequently, you may need an alcohol rehab facility that offers a detox program that will allow you to go through withdrawal as medical staff monitors your symptoms. In some cases, medications such as chlordiazepoxide, also known as Librium, may be administered to make the transition easier and more comfortable.
Some people may need a dual diagnosis facility while undergoing treatment for an alcohol addiction. If you've been diagnosed with a mental health disorder, look for a facility that addresses your addiction and your mental health.
Different alcohol treatment programs have different costs and payment options. Some may accept insurance, while others do not. Likewise, some require payment upfront, and others offer in-house financing options. When you don't have to worry about how you'll pay for your rehabilitation, you're more likely to focus on recovery, which will reduce your risk of relapse.
The length of stay varies from one rehab facility to another. Some may be as short as 14 days, while others offer long-term options from 90 days to a year. Though research has shown that a longer stay results in a decreased chance of relapse, extended care may not suit those who have children or those who have to return to work.
