When you or a loved one decide to address your addiction, the recovery program you enter into can make all the difference. However, the decision of what recovery program to choose requires a lot of thought and can often be a difficult one for everyone involved. There are a lot of factors that go into choosing an addiction recovery center, and the proper due diligence can help you find the best option for your individual needs.

These are some things to consider when choosing an addiction recovery center.

The Staff

To receive the best treatment and care possible, you should only consider recovery centers that are staffed by medical and clinical professionals who are trained and licensed in treating addiction and substance use. The best programs will have an ASAM (American Society of Addiction Medicine) certified physicians and or psychiatrist on staff as well as be CARF (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities) accredited.

The Cost

Whenever you enter into a private addiction recovery program, the cost is bound to enter your mind. It may be ideal to find a recovery center that accepts your insurance — for example, at Silver Ridge, we are an in-network provider with Blue Cross and Blue Shield.

However, the best program for you may be covered under out-of-network-benefits, accept self-pay, or allow financing. As you search for the best recovery center for your needs, we encourage you to look into our insurance coverage options.

The Treatment Approach

In order to work towards sobriety and an overall healthier lifestyle, seek an addiction recovery center that employs an integrative approach, utilizing both evidence-based treatment modalities along with holistic methods to improve your physical, mental, and spiritual health. When your body is viewed as one whole entity, you can heal in a more positive way.

The Environment

Especially during midlife, it’s not so much the substance that leads to addiction, but the stress of everyday life that can push you towards needing extreme coping mechanisms. It’s for this reason that it’s often best to choose a recovery center that offers you a peaceful, calming environment, away from the stress and pain of your day-to-day worries.

At Silver Ridge, we offer a 10,000-acre estate nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Asheville, North Carolina. Our treatment center will allow you to reflect on the joys of your life through a healing connection with nature.
