What is the best substance abuse treatment program for me?
There isn’t a single right answer for everyone, but here are things to consider when deciding what is right for you. Everyone has their own circumstance to deal with, their own needs, and their level of addiction. There is not really a right or wrong answer.
If you are religious then maybe a 12-step program will work for you, if not then a non-12-step program may be best. If you have a high level of addiction and are concerned about relapse then inpatient rehab is likely the best choice. If you need flexibility and have a stable home life and solid support system then outpatient rehab programs could be a good choice.
Many rehabs have different options for activities and amenities, those are things to consider, because being comfortable is important, and building your interests and healthy habits are important for long-term recovery as well.
