New Hampshire

Realizing that you or a loved one needs addiction treatment for drug and alcohol problems can be a difficult realization, but it is an important first step in finding a new healthy life.

There are many excellent treatment and rehab programs available in New Hampshire.  Often it is a matter of finding a program that will meet your needs and is also approved by your health insurance plan.  You can attend either an in-patient or an out-patient program.  In-patient treatment programs are usually intensive programs that require residence for at least two months and can last up to a year, although on average they last two to four months.  Out-patient rehab programs usually consist of a short detox stay and then daily and then later weekly group and individual counseling sessions.

If you are considering a drug and alcohol rehab program, it is important to consult your insurance company and find out what programs are approved for your health insurance programs.  Since rehab can be an expensive prospect, understanding what your health insurance requires is extremely important.

Rehab programs in New Hampshire often include many innovative and effective treatment approaches to drug and alcohol issues.  It is important to remember that addiction is a lifelong issue for most people, so it may be necessary to attend a number of treatment or rehab programs across a person’s lifetime.  For many people, attending rehab for a short stint may be an effective way to “tune-up” or revisit their clean and sober goals and remind themselves of why they sought treatment in the first place.  Episodes of relapse are not at all unusual and you may find that a short visit to a treatment program or a few sessions with a qualified drug counselor are beneficial.

Also, not every program or drug counselor resonates with every patient.  If you find that one treatment program does not work well, be willing to try another one until you find a program that really works and helps you understand why you or your family member has problems with alcohol or other drugs and teaches healthier coping skills that you can use in your life.

If you or a loved one needs treatment for drug or alcohol issues in New Hampshire, contact your insurance company and find out what programs are on their approved list of rehab centers and when you contact a prospective treatment center, ask lots of questions about the approach and philosophy to treating drug and alcohol issues.
