Tips for Selecting an Addiction Specialist

Tips for Selecting an Addiction Specialist

If you or someone you know is struggling with addiction, you might be considering rehab. However, it is important to conduct research so that you are able to feel confident in the addiction specialist you choose.

Here are some tips for selecting an addiction specialist near you:

24-Hour Care

Whether you are looking to attend a residential rehab or receive off-campus treatment, it is important to find a team that will be there for you 24/7. This is especially true for individuals struggling with chronic addictions. You will want to ensure that you can receive the support you need when you need it most.

A Good Fit

Whether it is for you or your loved one struggling with addiction, it is important to keep an open mind when researching a rehab. Although it may not be easy, an open mind is a necessary step toward long-lasting obtaining recovery. One way to decide whether a rehab center is a good fit is by speaking with the staff members. Are they welcoming, friendly, and open? If so, it may be a sign that a rehab facility is the right fit.

Licensing & Accreditation

This is an absolute must for choosing any sort of rehab center. What licensing does your desired facility possess? Receiving specific accreditation and licensing will demonstrate that the facility is willing to go the extra mile to receive such licensing, which is a good indicator that they will do the same in their care for clients. The Crossroads Program in Naples is licensed and accredited by the following organizations:

  • Florida Department of Children & Families
  • Agency for Healthcare Administration
  • The Joint Commission

Insurance Plan Considerations

Rehab treatment can be hard to afford. Be sure that the addiction specialist you choose will accept your insurance before you admit yourself or a loved one. At Crossroads, we accept many major insurance plans, including:

  • Aetna
  • Allegiance
  • Blue Cross/Blue Shield
  • Cigna
