Before you send your loved one off to addiction treatment, wouldn’t you want some form of a checklist of what constitutes effective treatment? Of course you do. Well, here you go. If you’d like to talk more, especially talk more about what happens after treatment, give me a call. Otherwise, due your homework. There is very little oversight regarding drug treatment facilities. In my experience, what they say they do and what actually happens can be very different. Consider for a moment the amount of money you may be ready to put down to save your kid or loved one, you need ask the right questions. Many of these facilities prey on your desperation and hopelessness. Don’t be victim, but an informed consumer.
