Choosing a Treatment Center
After recognizing and accepting that you need alcohol and drug treatment, the next most crucial step in the process is choosing an addiction center that is right for you. Below are a series of questions to consider while choosing a treatment center to select the best facility and staff to help with your addiction recovery.
Is The Alcohol and Drug Treatment Personalized?
A one-size-fits-all approach to alcohol and drug treatment may not work for you and your specific needs. At Midwest Recovery, each patient receives a personalized plan for their treatment, from inpatient to an intensive outpatient program therapy, partial hospitalization, to gender-specific treatment. You will have alcohol and drug treatment tailored to you and your specific needs.
Does The Treatment Center Use Dual Diagnosis?
Individuals struggling with substance abuse issues — no matter where they are on their road to recovery — should seek a treatment center specializing in dual diagnosis.
Dual-diagnosis, or “co-occurring disorder,” is an addiction therapy that does more than treating the specific addiction. At Midwest Recovery, we use dual-diagnosis to treat the addiction as occurring simultaneous to, and being fueled by, underlying mental issues. When you recognize that your addiction is linked to a psychological condition, both can be treated, and the chances for long-term recovery are heightened.
Our dual-diagnosis program is the beating heart of the addiction treatment programming at Midwest Recovery Center.
What Kind of Amenities Are Offered?
Addiction and substance use disorders can damage both the body and the mind. Therefore, it can be useful to choose a treatment center that also emphasizes restorative care during the addiction recovery process. An addiction center may offer amenities such as:
- Group exercise classes
- Massage therapy
- Chiropractor sessions
- Yoga instruction
- Nutritional education
By treating the whole self, patients will be better equipped to experience long-term recovery.
Who Is On Staff At The Treatment Center?
Midwest Recovery was founded largely by people who had struggled with addiction themselves and were desperate to make a difference. The staff at our addiction center is skilled, dedicated, and caring. Each team member will know what you are going through and work diligently to help you achieve success in your addiction recovery.
Nearby or Out of State?
When choosing an addiction center, you will need to decide whether to seek help nearby or find the best addiction recovery help regardless of location. Midwest Recovery is located in Toledo, Ohio, and offers community housing for inpatient treatment.
Are There Alcohol and Drug Treatments You Need?
Each type of addiction demands a unique approach to treatment. When choosing an addiction center, make sure the correct treatment program is available. Some examples of the alcohol and drug treatment offered at Midwest Recovery are:
- Opioid addiction treatment
- Alcohol addiction treatment
- Heroin addiction treatment
- Painkiller addiction treatment
Is There Aftercare?
Recovery is a lifelong commitment, but the reality of addiction recovery is that many people relapse on their road to success. Midwest Recovery Center understands that you will be finding healthy ways to handle ongoing stress and anxiety, as well as past trauma, for a long time after you complete your treatment program. Many individuals in our care need lifelong support to stay sober—not because they are too weak to handle recovery, but because they are strong enough to admit they need help. Our alumni program offers the kind of aftercare you need through the support of others who have experienced similar struggles.
