5 Essential Tips: Choosing an Addiction Treatment & Recovery Center

Addiction Treatment

            Once you’ve made the decision to make a change, it’s time to decide where you want to begin your journey. The right choice of facility can affect the success of your recovery. Here are five tips to keep in mind as you make the first choice of your recovery journey:

Understand what you want:

      Addiction treatment is more than just stopping. It requires a wholesale investment in changing your whole life. Addiction touches every part of its victim’s lives. To make real, lasting change, you need to figure out what you want out of your rehab and recovery. Figuring out what behaviors have enabled you to abuse substances and which ones have kept you making the same self-destructive decisions is an essential part of any real recovery journey.

Dealing with the root causes of your addiction can be bitter, difficult work, but it’s necessary to make sure that the arc of your life bends in a new and better direction. That kind of introspection and therapeutic process takes an imaginative and thoughtful team who are capable of using multiple approaches to improve your mental health and assist in the healing process. At Better Tomorrow Treatment Center, we have the trained and capable staff that you need to assist you in taking the real necessary steps to make the next chapter of your life as bright as possible.


Certain addiction and treatment centers specialize in only certain kinds of abuse disorders. Certain clinics or treatment centers might specialize in alcohol use disorder but may be woefully unprepared to care for a patient who needs treatment for a fentanyl addiction. They may also have limited experience and expertise in treating co-occurring abuse disorders. If your chosen rehab center’s specialties do not fit your needs, you may end up wasting your time and hard-earned money on treatment from a well-meaning, but ineffectual staff who don’t know how to help you. At Better Tomorrow Treatment Center, we specialize in treating alcohol, fentanyl, meth, cocaine, opioid, and prescription painkiller abuse.

Treatment options:

Deciding how you want to be treated is an individual choice and one that you must make for yourself. Deciding between inpatient and outpatient treatment will depend on your own understanding of your recovery needs, recovery goals, and personal healing style as well as the external requirements of your lifestyle. Not every treatment facility offers both and you should make sure to choose a facility that can meet you where you are. Inpatient treatment is clinically proven to be more effective than outpatient treatment in recovery from addiction and we’re proud to offer inpatient treatment facilities for any patient that would like to take advantage.

While we strongly recommend that you take advantage of our inpatient services, we do understand that outside obligations might leave inpatient treatment an impossibility. We are also proud to offer outpatient treatment programs for patients who would prefer to remain in their homes during their recovery process. Our Intensive Outpatient treatment programs help teach our patients the skills and tools that they will need to continue their recovery journey.


For many people, recovering from addiction is the hardest thing that they will ever do in their lives. While the rewards are worth it, we will never tell you that it will be easy. That being said, there’s no reason to make recovery any harder than it has to be. At Better Tomorrow, we believe in honoring the courage and conviction that our patients show in seeking help by making their stays as comfortable as possible.

            Your recovery journey doesn’t end when you walk out of your chosen treatment center for the last time and neither should your treatment. Commitment to recovery is a long process and you should make sure to chose a treatment center that honors that commitment by also committing to a long-term vision for your care. Many treatment and recovery facilities, unfortunately, see their patients as two-legged account numbers, taking up beds for as long as their insurance will pay for it, only to be shipped out and on their way to make room for the next billable patient. At Better Tomorrow Treatment Center, we reject that form of work in favor of our holistic, patient-centered approach to care. Our aftercare programs help guide our patient to long-term success in recovery. We stress relapse prevention, teach early recovery strategies, and provide 12-step outreach and support. Our alumni support systems give our patients the tools they need to build sober communities and assist each other in maintaining the sobriety that they worked so hard to win.
