Seeking help for a drug or alcohol addiction is an investment of your time, energy, hope, and money and therefore prospective clients need to be highly selective about what program they pick. Quality of professionals, variety of therapy styles, tailored treatment goals, and individual time with certified therapists versed in addiction are items you should make sure a program has before you invest yourself in it. Private drug rehab programs excel in each of these categories and provide residents with a sense of security/ stability that is very hard to come by in public facilities where people move in/out constantly and well balanced schedules are hard to come by. Structure is something that addicts/alcoholics both resist at all costs and thrive under and private drug rehab programs are able to offer a well-regulated balance of structure and recreation/ creativity. In addition, private drug rehab centers are able to pay their employees a more competitive salary and therefore attract the most well-educated and experienced clinicians, an extremely important facet of quality treatment. In addition, private drug rehab programs are able to offer clients the perspective that recovery is an opportunity and therefore deserving of both gratitude and deep respect. By not housing clients in run-down homes or making them “rough it” during early recovery, private drug rehab centers acknowledge that recovery is a huge privilege and deserves be treated as such. Oftentimes people associate drug and alcohol abuse with the glamorous/ luxurious setting in which they use the substances and private drug rehab centers strive to provide settings that entice addicts/alcoholics into recovery and help them associate recovery with the external beauty it will bring to their internal life.
