For many, the opioid crisis isn’t so much a problem as it is an opportunity.
An opportunity to set up a phony rehab center, lure in people who need help, take their money and do little else. Or, in the worst-case scenarios, actually feed their clients’ addictions in order to keep receiving insurance money.
The sad reality is that there are a lot of people ready and willing to take advantage of the suffering of others.
One of the best ways to ensure that this doesn’t happen to you is to choose a treatment program that’s been around for more than just a few years.
When considering a rehab, ask what year the center was established. Ask to speak with the director. Ask for references. And ask what kind of credentials they may have. (Credentials such as the Gold Seal of Approval by The Joint Commission, for example, generally take some time to earn and are a sign of excellent care.)
Other Benefits of Established Treatment Centers
Of course you want a treatment program that isn’t a scam, but you want—and deserve—more than that.
You want to find a place where skilled professionals have the expertise and the experience needed to help you get well. You want a place that’s had time to find the best chefs, nutritionists, doctors, nurses and therapists.
You want a place where hundreds, if not thousands, of other people have already walked out their doors, equipped and ready to launch new lives.
You’ve made the decision to get help—and that’s amazing. Now, go just one step further and make sure to choose a place that’s willing—and able—to support you in every possible way.
And remember, the goal isn’t just to live a drug-free life; it’s to live a good life.
