Common Drug Rehab Questions

Most Common Questions People Ask

We realize that there are many choices for drug and alcohol treatment centers and we want to help you find the right fit for you and your specific needs. Here are five questions to ask any treatment program director before you make this important decision.

Do you believe in the disease concept of addiction?

If they do, then eliminate them as an option right away. If the center subscribes to the disease method, it means that they will not focus on healing the underlying conditions that are causing drug and alcohol use.

Will you label me an addict or alcoholic upon entering your program?

If they say yes, eliminate them as an option as well. Calling someone an addict or alcoholic only reinforces addiction and does nothing to heal the underlying conditions that cause drugs and alcohol use.

How many hour-long, one-on-one sessions with a therapist occur during a typical stay?

If the answer is less than 40 hours, move on. This is most likely a group meeting facility.

How many therapists will work with me while in treatment?

Consider choosing another facility if the answer is less than five. It is important to have a well-rounded approach with many therapists who specialize in different areas. This is a true holistic approach and the only way to truly treat the whole person. One therapist cannot do it all.

Will I be deprived of my cell phone, forced to do household chores, and forbidden from talking to my loved ones?

If they say yes, move on because this is most likely a disciplinary facility and that believes in punitive type treatment.
