Is Private Addiction Treatment Right for Me?

There are many benefits to private addiction treatment but that doesn’t necessarily mean that this method of treatment is the right action for everyone who is addicted to drugs or alcohol. Many people cannot afford private addiction treatment and for others, the utmost privacy that is provided in these programs is simply more than necessary to provide adequate comfort and care. Most people will find that private addiction treatment is a valuable service that can be highly effective at treating a wide range of addictions including drug or alcohol abuse but the high cost of this type of treatment keeps it out of reach for many people.

What’s the Big Deal?

So what’s so great about private addiction treatment? The privacy of course! People who choose private addiction treatment choose this method of care mainly for their own privacy matters. No other type of addiction treatment will provide such a tight niche focus on keeping matters private. In fact, private addiction treatment programs respect the individual privacy of those in recovery so much that they even allow members to choose whether or not they will take part in group therapy sessions.

Who Should Choose Private Treatment?

Private Addiction Treatment Program

Private addiction treatment is a great choice if you want privacy throughout recovery.

If you still trying to figure out if private treatment is the right choice for you, consider how important your privacy is to you. Keep in mind that you will always be protected by patient privileges when you talk with a counselor regardless of whether you seek private treatment or attend a more community or public based treatment program. However, when you choose private treatment you have the added ability to keep everything private. This means that you don’t even have to share in group meetings with others who are also in the private program.

Private treatment for addiction takes your privacy a step further by providing you with your own living quarters, your own space and your own privacy. This is something that is not always offered at standard or traditional treatment programs where you may have to share a room or share living space, meals and group sessions with others who are in treatment. Additionally, most private treatment programs are not labeled outside and the addresses are not publicly listed so if you are seen coming and going from the facility, nobody will know what you are doing or that you are getting help for addiction.

Private treatment is ideal for those who cannot allow others to know of their addiction. For instance doctors, teachers, or members of the legal system who may be banned from their jobs if their problem with drugs or alcohol were to be announced to the public may find private treatment a safer and more comfortable option for getting help when they need it.
