Should You Travel for Treatment?
For many of those addicted to drugs or alcohol, your first course of action will be in deciding geographically where you want to attend treatment. While those who are interested in outpatient care will be best served by attending a treatment center in their hometown, those who are concerned about privacy or who need to make special arrangements for their care may be interested in going to surrounding cities and traveling for treatment.
For example, you may prefer a faith-based approach to recovery that matches your religious choices. In other situations, your choice of drug and alcohol rehab center may be solely based on how holistic the center’s approach to recovery is. In either of these cases, travel may be necessary in order to fulfill your personal requirements for treatment. We can help you make the decision on whether or not travel for treatment will be the right choice for you or your loved one.
