Out-of-State vs. In-State Rehab Centers for Addiction Treatment
Choosing to recover from substance abuse is no small matter. While recovery is within your reach, long-term healing requires discipline and dedication. Sometimes it takes a big step, such as traveling out of state to receive treatment in the best setting possible, to jump-start real change.
Considerations for Choosing a Treatment Facility Away from Home
When researching treatment centers outside your home area, consider these questions:
- What is the philosophy or mission of the treatment center? Do you share its values?
- Will the distance from family and friends hinder or help you?
- Does the location of the facility (urban, rural, etc.) feel conducive to your healing needs?
A change of scenery can make a world of difference.
Benefits to Out-of-State Rehab
There are clear benefits to out-of-state care. Consider the following:
- Clients who find help out-of-state are more likely to complete treatment. Out-of-state rehab has a 12% higher completion rate than comparable in-state treatment, and a 20% higher drug detox rate.
- Clients find it easier to leave behind bad habits and toxic influences. Clients who find care out-of-state are able to separate themselves from the people, places, and other factors that perpetuate addiction.
- Going out-of-state can provide for some of the best treatment options in the country. When patients aren’t confined to a single state, they are able to explore and find well established, robust programs that are staffed by experienced professionals.
- Clients enjoy greater privacy and confidentiality. Clients who travel out-of-state are able to get the help they need without worrying about others, ensuring that they can begin the recovery process comfortable in their confidentiality.
- Clients may have greater incentive to stick with treatment. Having put in the time and energy as well as more skin in the game can be a powerful motivator to make the most of the recovery experience.
- Treatment is more effective with fewer distractions. When clients don’t have to worry about the everyday stresses of home or work, they can focus on healing.
