Benefits of Traveling For Residential Rehab

  • Maintaining Reputation - We are always completely confidential, but traveling to a different state for rehab reduces the chances that you’ll be recognized while in treatment.
  • Removal of Relapse influences - Triggers are a large factor in relapsing. These can include old temptations, places, people, and situations. It also reduces temptations to stop treatment and go home while going through the program
  • A New Geographical Environment - Traveling for rehabilitation gives you the space from your routine and loved ones that is needed to get sober.
  • A New Beginning - The start of recovery is a new beginning, and traveling for rehab reinforces this idea. A new environment gives a sense of a new life, and that alone is why the National Survey on Drug and Use reports estimates 15% of recovering addicts achieve more success in an out-of-state facility.

Benefits of Staying Local For Residential Rehab

  • Local rehabilitation is cheaper. Traveling costs can include airfare, gas, and sometimes more. We suggest contacting an addiction specialist to help you understand what it will cost out of pocket, if any, to go to rehab.
  • Pet/childcare arrangements - If you have dependents it can be difficult to make arrangements.
  • You can identify triggers - Some clients believe that this can be a challenge, but others believe identifying triggers while going through recovery can be a benefit as well.
  • Being close to loved ones - If your loved ones are also addicted to substances then this can present a challenge. If you have a strong support group staying local may work in your favor. It is important to mention that most destination rehab facilities will provide other ways for families to connect such as Zoom, Skype, and other telecommunication methods.
