5. Look for something now
Yes if you have a problem, you should act when you can. More importantly, you should look to find treatment programs that offer whenever you need help. For example, having a relapse is hard, but sometimes they happen. If there were sound interventions to help prevent the relapse, then maybe you would have made a better choice. There are programs out there that offer programs immediately as soon as you need; just make sure to search for them. Your addiction rehab is starting the moment you find a place and actually actively looking for a rehab is a great start.
6. Look for a rehab that is there to keep you and help you
Your rehab program should not be considered a drive thru; you need help and do not need to be rushed out the door. In other words, finding a rehab that offers its help and understanding without pushing you out after you have paid is something you need to consider. Addiction takes time to overcome and it takes one day at a time to overcome. Some people have triggers towards addiction that cannot be solved overnight and sometimes these triggers are not always present in the rehab environment. This is why some clinics need to offer the extended stay to help meet your needs.
