Spokane Drug Rehab Programs
Spokane is a city located in eastern Washington, home to a vast array of outdoor activities and beautiful scenic views. It’s also home to some of the best drug rehab programs in Washington state. When you’re looking for a drug rehab, either for yourself or a loved one, you’ll of course be looking for the safest, most effective facility. Well, not all facilities are created equal. In fact, they can vary widely, from top of the line to sub-par treatment. There are many considerations to take when deciding which facility is right for you.
Here we will examine what to look for when choosing a Spokane drug rehab program.
Accreditation, Certification, and Licensing
First and foremost, any treatment center not accredited by The Joint Commission or the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilitates (CARF) should not be considered. These two organizations are the base accreditation throughout the industry, setting standards for quality, safety, value, and results. This should be a must when deciding a facility. Additionally, certifications should be taken into consideration, particularly ones that require a strict vetting process such as LegitScript.
Clinical Staff Credentials
Not every treatment center has a staff with the training and experience needed to provide adequate care. It’s important to find out if clinical staff if licensed or accredited before committing to a program. Some programs even try to “sneak by” with a bare minimum clinical staff, allowing the quality of care to suffer in the process.
Diverse Treatment Team
A good drug rehab program will have a diverse team, in order to address all the complexities of addiction. A program that leans too heavily on one person, for several positions, is something to be cautious of.
A strong team should consist of:
- A medical doctor
- Nursing staff
- Experienced support staff
- Physical fitness expert
- Substance abuse counselors
- Spiritual counselor
In order for a program to make any lasting changes, it has to actually work. Treatment methods backed by science-based research have been proven effective. Other evidence-based practices include twelve-step programs, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT).
Completing treatment is an amazing milestone, however, aftercare treatment is just as important. Immediately returning to everyday life can be overwhelming without the proper support system. Most reliable treatment providers offer continuing care programs, and sober living programs to keep you accountable long after treatment has ended.
These are just a few of the things that should be considered before choosing a Spokane drug rehab program. Everyone has specific needs and circumstances, and should consider all their options before making a decision. Keep in mind when choosing a drug rehab, that this can be a chance to start living the life you deserve.
