After making sure a treatment facility is up to par with regulations, Anchorage residents should also look for specific treatments that speak directly to their circumstances.

Qualities to Look for in Drug Rehabilitation

There are some basic, key qualities to look for in top-rated drug treatment.

  • Dual Diagnosis treatment
  • Transitional work programs
  • Family counseling
  • Residential and outpatient programs
  • Gender and age specific treatments
  • 12-step programs
  • Individual therapy
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Equestrian therapy
  • Dialectal behavioral therapy

  • EMDR
  • Meditation courses
  • Nutrition and exercise classes
  • Relapse prevention workshops
  • Support groups

Are the staff members certified professionals? There are specific licenses needed to become psychologists, drug addiction counselors, therapists, and nurses. Each state has a slightly different requirement for each professional. There are many facilities outside of Anchorage that have top quality addiction specialists, so don’t feel obligated to choose one close to home.
Is the rehab center up-to-date with state and federal statutes? Other regulations regarding the facility itself, its standards of treatment and its patients’ success rate are important to look for in a rehab center. The most common accreditation organizations on a national level are as follows:

  • Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (CARF)
  • Joint Commission for the Accreditation of Healthcare Organization (JCAHO)
  • National Committee for Quality Assurance
  • All-States

Is medically supervised detox offered at the rehab center or would you have to travel for hospitalized detox? Some rehab facilities do not provide inpatient detox and instead send patients to detox centers or hospitals for that process. It is also very important that the detox be medically supervised to provide the greatest comfort and safest recovery for any Anchorage patient.

Does the rehab center offer follow-up programs such as aftercare? It’s very important to have a flexible form of aftercare following primary treatments. This can prevent relapse and help encourage Anchorage residents to continue long-term sobriety.
What is the belief statement or philosophy of the treatment facility? Is it spiritually oriented? Does it offer a holistic approach to treatments?

What is their success rate and how is it determined? Each rehab can have a different definition of success. A higher success rate is preferred but only if it is calculated fairly.

Luxury rehab is drug addiction treatment disguised as a vacation. Spacious, private lodgings, customizable schedules and wonderful food are only some of the extravagant characteristics of luxury rehab.
