What to look for when choosing a residential recovery center

Choosing the right treatment program can be overwhelming. You need to make the choice that is right for you and your loved one. HelpGuide.Org ( is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide resources to patients and families facing mental and behavioral health issues. They suggest starting the search for substance abuse treatment as follows:
“You may see advertisements for programs in tranquil settings with gorgeous views. While amenities like that are nice to have, they likely come with a big price tag. Focus on what is truly important: appropriate licensing, quality of care during the program, follow-up services, and staff credentials. Things to check include:

  • Program accreditation and licensing. Make sure the treatment program is accredited by the state it’s in. Also check to ensure that the program is run by licensed, well-trained mental health professionals and addiction specialists.
  • The effectiveness of the program's treatment methods. Treatment centers should have at least some statistics on their success rates, preferably from an objective outside agency.
  •  Is there a well-run aftercare program? Does it provide referrals to other recovery services and support groups in the community? Also make sure that a staff member will collaborate with you to create a discharge plan before you leave the program.”

In addition, Everyday Health ( - a recognized online information resource - compiled a number of questions to consider when you call or visit a prospective program:

  1. What is the goal of your drug addiction treatment program?

  2. What licenses and certifications do your treatment center and its staff have?

  3. Is there a waiting list to enter and, if so, how long is the wait?

  4. If residential, how long do you recommend that I stay?

  5. If residential, will family and friends be able to contact or visit me? Will they be asked to participate in any counseling with me?

  6. How will I be billed for your program? Do you take insurance? Is there financing available?

  7. What kinds of services are included in your fee?

  8. What kinds of medical services are available if I need them — for example, do you provide supervised detoxification or assistance with pain management?

  9. What activities will I be required to participate in while in the program — individual counseling, group counseling, 12-step programs, or art therapy?

  10. What kinds of extra services or activities are available through the program? This could include anything from massage therapy to fitness programs.

  11. Do you have any counselors or therapists who can give me insight from the perspective of my religion? Will I have access to faith leaders or spiritual advisors if I need them?

  12. What therapeutic model or theories form the foundation of your treatment program, such as 12 steps, Hazelton, cognitive behavioral, or motivation enhancement?

  13. Are there staff members who have experience dealing with my specific addiction(s)?

  14. What will you do to prepare me for my return to the real world?

  15. Will you work with me on a discharge plan? If I don’t live close to the treatment center, will you help me find resources for continuing care in my own community?

  16. Do you provide follow-up care after I am discharged and, if so, for how long?

  17. Does your program help me transition into active 12-step participation and/or an addiction support group?
