Are you or someone you love ready to begin your recovery journey? First of all, congrats. You should be proud of yourself for taking this brave step. At this point, you’ll have a lot of decisions to make and this includes choosing the right type of addiction treatment facility. Among the many considerations, you’ll need to think about the size of the facility as well as the staff. You want to choose somewhere with professionals who have a lot of experience when it comes to substance abuse as well as specialized training or education in any co-occurring mental illnesses.
In general, a high staff to client ratio means more personalized treatment. This type of program is often recommended for someone with a long history of substance use disorder. If you’ve experienced numerous relapses or failed attempts at recovery and have little support from family or friends, it may also be beneficial for you.
Here are a few more benefits:
- You’ll received more individualized treatment: Staff can work closely with you to develop a recovery plan that aligns with your individual needs and goals. This is especially key if you’re dealing with a co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorder.
- You’ll have a greater level of supervision: With fewer clients, staff can have a closer eye on you during the various stages of recovery – from detox to intensive outpatient treatment.
- You’ll develop deeper, lasting connections: Staff can spend more time with you and this can result in deeper connections and stronger supports that extend in aftercare and beyond.
