Question by : Can the uninsured and unemployed go to alcohol rehab too?
Ok, I am 20 years old now and I am no longer in denial of being an alcoholic. I realize it now. My life is so messed up and I want to change before things get even worse. The only problem is that now I am jobless again due to my alcoholism and I am close to broke. Do rehabs accept people with no insurance or a job even? Thank you…..

Choosing the right alcohol rehab clinic can be difficult and confusing but it is important and can be a key factor in whether a treatment programme succeeds or fails.

Each individual rehab clinic will have their own approach to alcohol treatment so you’ll need to do some research about different clinics and your needs. Research clinics yourself and seek out reliable information both online and from others. Someone else who’s been through alcohol dependency may be able to recommend a good clinic or give you advice on choosing one.

Obviously you’ll need to consider the price. Think about how much you can realistically afford and try not to overstretch yourself as this could make things worse, particularly if alcohol problems are linked to stress. A lot of people get help from their family or from some kind of loan but again, tread carefully to avoid debt problems.

Think about where the rehab centre is located in relation to your friends and loved one. If it’s too far away it may be difficult to receive visitors. It’s true that some people prefer not to have visitors, though. If quiet and isolation is important to you find out if the centre offers that.

What kind of accommodation does the rehab clinic offer? Some offer single rooms, whilst others are shared. Some people in treatment like to share a room but others want to have their own room.

Some types of treatment suit some people more than others and it’s important to know what’s on offer. Different clinics will offer different treatments. Ask at the clinic what treatments they offer and how each person’s treatment programme is decided.

Questions to ask

When you’re getting more information on rehab clinics you’ll probably want to go armed with a list of questions. Questions you might like to consider asking include:

What kind of treatment programmes does the centre offer?
What are the prices?
How long is the recommended stay?
What is the success rate?
Do you have any case studies/testimonials?
Are visitors allowed?
What are the rules?
What are the consequences of rule-breaking?
What is the detox process?
What detox medication is offered?
Who will work with me?
What qualifications do the staff have?
What is the ethos of the clinic?
What kind of aftercare is on offer?
