When seeking treatment for a drug or alcohol addiction, it is important to find the program that is best suited to your needs. One factor to look at is the success rate of the program. While success is defined differently by everyone, these success rates can help you choose the most effective path to a long term recovery.

When researching drug rehabs, it is common to ask about success rates of specific treatments and specific facilities. With any facility, you want to make sure you are receiving the best quality care and that the staff and facility itself are all accredited. However, you also want to make sure you are receiving the best treatment for your specific case. When choosing a treatment, you’re likely asking yourself: Do holistic rehab facilities have the highest success rates or are inpatient or outpatient drug rehabs the most successful?

Defining Success Rates

A facility’s success rate will tell you how many patients at that facility recovered from their addiction and completed the program. For example, a drug rehab facility claiming a 92% success rate means that 92 out of 100 patients recovered from their drug addiction.

Seeking help and being willing to change are the keys to success in any rehab program or facility. For example, any drug rehab program that offers quality care and caring professional staff can lead to excellent recovery results and personal success. But what about individual treatment programs? Which of these offers you the highest success rate?

Inpatient Vs. Outpatient

Inpatient rehab centers are where a patient will stay in rehab for 30-90 days or more, depending on their addiction. An inpatient facility removes a patient from the daily distractions of life so they can focus on their recovery even more. On the other hand, outpatient facilities, allow individuals to attend a treatment a few hours a day, a few times a week. The patient going to an outpatient facility can then return home at the end of the day.

But which type of treatment has a better success rate? It has been statistically proven that patients that stay more than 30 days at an inpatient rehab double their success rate for long-term sobriety.

Why are inpatient rehabs so successful? A few suggested reasons include: a full submersion in the treatment program; removal from the temptations and distractions of life; and inpatient facilities also monitor and care for patients round-the-clock. This isn’t to say that outpatient rehab treatments aren’t successful: for people with less severe addictions with busy lives, it is often the best option because it lets them live their lives with decreased stress or strain.

Holistic Approaches

If you have tried other forms of treatment, but they haven’t been effective, you may want to consider holistic drug rehab. Inpatient holistic drug rehabs or 30 or more days offer patients the chance to focus on healing their mind, body, and soul.

In holistic treatment, you can choose to participate in acupuncture, yoga, meditation, exercise, massage therapy, and spiritual counseling. Holistic drug rehabs also use 12-step programs and medications to help individuals achieve sobriety as well.

Holistic drug rehabs have gained popularity in recent years and recent scientific studies have shown that patients have dramatically improved their success rates with the addition of holistic treatment approaches.

Faith-Based Treatment

If you are a religious person, faith-based treatments could be perfect for you. Faith-based drug rehabs provide tools to help you heal physically, emotionally, and spiritually, surrounded by people who respect your religious beliefs. Faith-based drug treatments focus on healing physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of addiction and are highly popular and successful.

In fact, studies have shown that bringing faith into rehab has been shown to increase a person’s success rate, especially if they are a true belief. Finding faith for new believers or regaining faith for those who have gone astray from their beliefs can be a powerful force to restore your mind, body, and soul from addiction.
