The decision to attend an alcohol and drug treatment program may feel overwhelming. After all, it often takes years for substance misuse to build up to the peak that prompted your decision, and it will take time and effort to unpack the physiological, psychological and social drives behind your misuse. The good news is, with proper treatment, recovery is possible for everybody – and if you are strong enough to take this huge step in seeking out a treatment program, then you have the strength it takes to achieve success.
As you research which rehabilitation center is right for you, don’t hesitate to write down even your most seemingly minor questions. For example, you may deem a question like “What is the food like?” silly in the grand scheme of things, but this center will be your home for awhile and factors like that do impact the quality of your stay. Create a list of items that are important to you, and don’t hesitate to reach out and contact us if you can’t find the answer to your questions on this website.

Please note that we are not a detox facility, so clients must have already undergone the detoxification process before beginning their treatment at ARAD. If you’re looking for a detox program, we can provide you with a list of resources that meet your needs. Do we want to include a few links to recommended providers? I’m also wondering if we should move this to either the top or bottom of the page and highlight it. Note that this is also covered on the “Is Treatment for You?” page.
You are to be applauded for taking this step, and you deserve a treatment program that will educate, heal and lift you up as you begin your journey to freedom from substance misuse.
