Are you seeking help for yourself or your loved one, but want to give yourself the best possible chance to make it through recovery? Then you may want to consider traveling to an addiction treatment center that is out of state or away from home. Surprised? Read on.
You may think it’s easier and more convenient to look for treatment centers closer to home, however there are several hidden benefits to finding a good addiction care center further away from your familiar surroundings.
1. Recovery first
Recovery from addiction depends on a healthy drug-free environment, away from negative stressors and familiar distractions. You know already that you have your own reasons why you are unable to quit or get sober in your current environment. It could be a toxic relationship, a stressful job, or an unhealthy habit. Traveling to an addiction treatment center that offers a respite from the relationships, habits, jobs or other stressors gives you a better chance to completely focus on your recovery.
2. Staying Potential
Due to the nature of the disease, addiction patients want to quit before they start, or as soon as they possibly can. The good news is that this desire to leave slows down, the longer you stay in treatment. Traveling for rehab gives an added benefit of making it harder for yourself or your loved one to simply leave. It may involve booking a flight, waiting for the date, getting on the plane, etc., which could act as deterrents for snap decisions.
3. Better Treatment Options
While there are many drug treatment centers in most cities, some cities and states provide better options than others. When you are considering a long term recovery center, ensure that the facility you are interested in offers individualized treatment programs, including any specific options you may have a preference for. In addition, some treatment centers may suit you better, in terms of community, group programs, and therapy modalities. Traveling for treatment gives you a much wider range of options than staying close to home.
4. Privacy and Confidentiality
Although HIPAA and CFR (Code of Federal Regulations) ensure that Substance Use Disorder treatments are private and confidential, getting treatment near their home or place of work doesn’t ensure complete privacy. Traveling to an out-of-state addiction treatment center helps avoid any uncomfortable run-ins with neighbors, or embarrassing questions from bosses and coworkers.
