How qualified is your staff? We think one of the most important things you should check on when you are searching for a rehab facility is what the staff is like. How qualified is the clinic’s staff? Do they have medical licenses? Are they focused on themselves, when their shift is over, or are they dedicated to the health and wellbeing of the patients they serve. The staff and clinicians who work at the rehab facility you chose can completely change your experience. Make sure the atmosphere is something you mesh with.

How involved can your family be? Many rehab facilities welcome family involvement. There are visiting hours and visiting days, or maybe a family day at the end to celebrate the progress and hard work that you’ve put in. But some rehab programs frown on outside participation. They prefer to work with a patient in a way that gives them the chance to step away fully from the stress in their lies. Both strategies have merit. Figure out the details and then decide what is right for you and your family.
