Here are some things to consider when trying to find the right treatment center for you.
Do You Need Detox?
Depending on the prescription pills you're taking, you may need detox. Certain painkillers, such as oxycontin, cause severe withdrawal symptoms that can be dangerous. During detox, medical staff will monitor your withdrawal symptoms, and they may administer medications to relieve symptoms. Not all treatment centers are equipped for patients who need detox, so be sure to find one that offers it if you believe you need it.
Do You Have Special Needs?
If you've been diagnosed with certain mental health disorders or have physical health issues, you may require a prescription drug rehab that addresses those concerns. Dual diagnosis facilities work specifically with addicts who have mental health issues, and partial hospitalization rehabs have medical staff on hand to assist those in poor physical health.
How to Find the Best Prescription Rehab Center
Here's a short list of things to consider when looking for a rehabilitation facility.
- Location: Whether you want to get far away from home or be close enough for your family to partake in treatment, location may play an important factor when trying to find a drug rehab center.
- Length of stay: Some facilities offer short-term treatment, typically 28 days, while others offer long-term treatment from three to six months.
- Cost: If cost is a concern, look for a rehab facility that accepts your insurance or offers financial assistance.
