Throughout the United States are many different types of non-12-step drug rehab centers. When searching for the right one, there will be countless options available. Most internet searches will reveal a directory-based website, where you can narrow down your search. The best option is to start to contact the various programs you are considering. Most treatment centers have a website that explains the program, along with ways to contact the facility. Some families will go the route of an addiction assessment. The assessment process helps determine what treatment method works best. The addict will sit down with an addictions counselor to help figure out what rehabilitation program is effective.

Because every addiction is not the same, it is important to find treatment methods that will work. This is done when the addict provides some of his or her history surrounding their addiction. Non-traditional treatment centers are offered through both inpatient and outpatient facilities. Families have the option of selecting either government-funded or private services. Most government-funded programs will have wait times. Whereas a private center admission process happens right away, yet you are paying for the program. Most state health services or community health services will have access to drug treatment resources. This would also be a good place to start looking for a program and speaking to people who treat addiction.
