3 Questions You Must Ask A Drug And Alchol Center

By Ras Reed

It's no longer a secret that there are many drug and alcohol rehab centers all over the world. As at the time of writing this, there are more than 15,000 centers in the United States of America alone! Though this is good on the one hand, it creates a problem for the newbie that wants a good and reliable drug and alcohol rehab center. The problem is making the right choice among the over 15,000 centers.

This problem can be reduced if you ask a potential rehab center these questions. A satisfactory answer will mean that you should consider registering with them but if they can't seem to provide the right answer, delete them from your potential list.

Are you accredited?
This is the first and major question you must ask the center. This is what tells you whether the center will be able to help you or a loved one get and stay off drugs. Though there are many accrediting organizations, the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JACHO) and Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), would suffice. If the center cannot provide their accreditation status for you, then it means that entering such a center will be suicidal as the center is not operating in line with the set national standards.

What are the credentials of your staff?
This is another measure you need to use to know the type of center you want to register for. There is no need for any drug or alcohol rehab center to hide the qualifications of their staffs. In fact the good and reliable ones will boast of the caliber of their staffs since that will give them an edge over the rest. Make sure that the center has qualified professionals skilled in treating drug or alcohol addiction. For instance, the therapist should be a member of the state or national therapist association.

Do you have any testimonial?
Testimonials from past clients can also be used to judge the competence of a drug or alcohol rehab center. Though many of the centers may not want to disclose their failures but at least you should be given the rate of their success. If possible contact the past clients and seek their own opinion about the center. You might also try putting up the question in a chat room, who knows somebody among participants may have gone to the center before.

If the center you want check into is not able to provide adequate and convincing answers to these questions, it means that you should continue searching for those that will do so. The fact that it's not ideal you try getting off drug or alcohol addiction on your own does not means you should lose all your lifetime savings at an incompetent rehab center.
