I know that it can be quite overwhelming looking for a recovery program or provider. With so many similarities throughout the industry, it often leaves a person in a state of guessing. “I like that this program talks about…” “This provider takes into consideration…” or “Here I can get the same treatment for less…”. The phrases one processes through can seem endless. Especially when more than one provider seemingly has the same approach or content on their website. In this scenario, it is always prudent to investigate which provider launched the approach or has been offering the service for a longer period.
Beyond that, really the first step is determining what level of care is truly necessary. I often talk with people who have avoided getting help because they believed everyone needed to “go to treatment” for at least 30 days. Of course, some do, but the reality is that frequently they don’t. A good recommendation when there is uncertainty is to find case management services that will guide and support you along the way.
