What If I Don’t Like My Rehab Center?

It sometimes happens: you do all the research you can on a specific rehab facility, call ahead to ask questions, and even visit the center before you decide to attend treatment there. And once you begin your program, you realize it isn’t right for you. If you end up realizing too late that you don’t like the rehab center you have chosen, you can still find a way to receive the care you need, even if it means you have to move to another program.

Don’t Give Up Too Soon

If you start your rehab program and feel uncomfortable right away, this can be normal. Especially if you are attending inpatient or residential rehab, you may be unhappy about being away from your home, friends, and family, and this can cause you to wonder if you can actually continue the program. It may be a good idea to give it a week if you are not sure, and then, if you still feel that the program isn’t meeting your needs or makes you unhappy, you could make arrangements to move to another facility.

Understand How Treatment Works

Don't Like My Rehab

Your doctor can change your treatment plan so that it better suits your needs.

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, one of the principles of effective treatment states, “Remaining in treatment for an adequate period of time is critical,” which is why many programs will attempt to accommodate you and your needs rather than have you leave. If, however, you feel that you absolutely have to leave the center you are in, you may still do so, but you must transition into a different program in order to stay on the right track with your recovery.

Talk to Your Doctor

Another of the principles of effective treatment is that “an individual’s treatment and services plan must be assessed continually and modified as necessary to ensure that it meets his or her changing needs.” Therefore, if you have issues with the way your treatment program is currently, you ought to speak to your doctor before moving on completely. They may be able to help you by making changes to your treatment plan or suggesting other ways in which the program can better serve you.

Move to Another Center

If you have decided that you cannot receive the treatment you require at your current rehab center, discuss a transfer to another with your current rehab center staff, your family and friends, your personal physician, and/or your insurance provider. With the help of others, you can find a program into which you can easily transition and ensure that you will have a better chance at recovery once you have done so.

Moving to another center should only occur if the program you chose truly cannot accommodate your needs and if you are not able to recover to your full potential. However, this does sometimes occur, and you deserve to attend rehab in a place where you feel safe, comfortable, and that your needs are met.
