It’s hard enough to admit you have a problem. Then you have to ask for help. In 2016, 3.6 million brave souls did ask for help. 2.1 million of them received that help in a private facility. When you decide you’ve had enough and you need help, there are a lot of decisions to make. Deciding where to seek treatment is one of the most important of those decisions. Many times, a private rehab center may be the best choice for you. Here are six key benefits of making the choice to choose a private center to get the help you deserve.
1. They’ll Develop A Personalized Treatment Plan
There is no one reason why someone develops an addiction. The reasons vary from person to person depending on their life circumstances and their choices. That’s why one of the best ways to ensure a successful outcome is to develop a personalized treatment plan for each person who enters the private rehab. A personalized plan starts with diagnostic testing. Psychological assessments and physical exams are also performed. Each of the therapies offered as a part of the treatment plan is tailored based on a specific set of criteria. People have different learning styles and personal histories. Each patient’s needs will change depending on the type of substance(s) they use. How long the patient has been abusing the drug(s) of choice will also factor into the personalized plan.
2. Close Medical Supervision
A private rehab center can provide the type of close medical supervision someone recovering from substance abuse so desperately needs. Detoxifying from substances often requires medical attention. The body and mind will have different reactions when the drugs they were so dependent on to get them through the day are no longer being used. But there’s more to addiction than just physical addiction. There is always a psychological reason why the patient chose to start using drugs in the first place. In order to effectively get clean, both the physical and the addictive behaviors must be addressed and dealt with.
3. No Waiting List To Enter The Facility
Public rehab centers often have long waiting lists. When you’ve reached the point where you want to get help, time is important. The longer you have to wait, the easier it is to fall back into bad patterns and habits. It’s easy to convince yourself that you don’t really have a problem. That you can control your addictions yourself. That you’re not really sick after all. Most private rehab centers can accept you immediately. The treatment begins right away. If cost is a worry, there are plenty of ways in which a private center can help you afford the care you deserve. Whether it’s working with your insurance company and even taking a look at scholarships and government programs, it’s about getting good help straight away.
4. A Private Rehab Provides Group And Family Sessions
No one can kick addiction on their own. A support system must be built up to help you transition from a life dependent on drugs to a life without drugs. That means getting other people who are suffering as you involved. A private rehab center offers group therapy. Group therapy is a great way to rebuild relationships and trust. It also helps build up independence for yourself, while allowing other people to help you out when you need it. Group therapy also teaches you that life can be lived and enjoyed without needing drugs or alcohol. This will help you increase your motivation to continue receiving treatment. It also helps improve your self-worth. You can begin to remember that you’re worthy of love and healthy life, even when you’re not the life of the party. Family sessions are also a vital part of receiving proper treatment at a private center. No one person in a family suffers alone. When one person is sick with an addiction, the whole family is affected. With family therapy, broken bonds can now begin to heal. It’s a way for the whole family to recognize the addiction for what it truly is. It’s also a way to share the fears and expectations that each family member has been dealing with. As the family begins to have an open conversation, old wounds begin the heal. New expectations and hope begin to grow.
5. Life Skills Training
Bad habits are learned when someone is struggling with addiction. These bad habits are hard to break and are easy to revert back to after you leave the private rehab center. New skills must be learned in order to cope with the reality of the outside world without turning back to drugs and alcohol. Life skills training involves communication techniques. This includes managing stress and anger. Time management and organizational skills are also taught to help the person create positive coping techniques and new lifestyle foundations. But it’s not just about managing your time to get through the day without relying on drugs or alcohol. Life skills training also includes learning how to take care of your body properly. This means learning about how to eat nutritious meals that help heal your body. It also means incorporating a daily fitness routine into your schedule. Patients are assigned on-site responsibilities to help them learn new and healthy habits they can use after they’ve left the facility to continue the healing process.
6. Transitional Planning
While at a private rehab center, it can feel kind of easy to start using your newly learned habits. It’s leaving and dealing with the real world that makes it a challenge. There are fewer triggers in a rehab center than you’ll find on the outside. Those triggers can be hard to ignore. That’s why 40-60% of all addicts relapse. This is why transitional planning is so vitally important to your treatment. Solutions for avoiding and handling potential temptations must be found. Triggers such as environmental, social, career, and interpersonal must be assessed prior to leaving with a proactive plan for coping with those stressors. Lastly, the more support you have, the easier it is for you to get and stay sober for good. That means leaving a clinic with referrals for physicians, therapists, and 12-step programs.
