Factors to Consider
In finding inpatient treatment for opioid abuse, there are a number of factors that should be considered. The first and foremost factor that you should consider will be whether inpatient rehab is necessary or if outpatient treatment could work. For most cases of opioid withdrawal, inpatient treatment is the ideal choice simply because this method of treatment provides around-the-clock monitoring that ensures patient safety during withdrawal while also limiting access to dangerous drugs that could lead to relapse.
In addition to determining whether you should seek the help of a residential or outpatient program, you should also consider the following factors:
- Cost – can you afford the treatment?
- Insurance – do you have health insurance that can help offset the cost of treatment?
- Location – will you choose help close to home or far away?
- Type of treatment – does the program provide the methods of treatment that will be most likely to help you?
- Duration of treatment – Is the program at least 30 days an preferably 90 days in length?
If you have questions about any of these factors, or for help deciding which factors are most important to your individual needs, call our helpline toll free to speak with a treatment specialist.
