Why You Should Choose A Private Rehab Over A Public Rehab In California

If you’re considering rehab facilities in California it’s clear that you’re ready to commit to recovery and that you want to learn the best way to move forward living a sober life. When it comes to choosing a facility, you have two options: private and public. Public rehab programs are state-funded so they are more accessible than private treatment for some people, like those that are paying out of pocket for treatment and need an affordable option. But if your insurance is paying for your treatment or if you can afford a private rehab facility you should choose a private facility. The biggest advantages of choosing a private rehab facility in California over a public facility are:

Better Treatment Options
A private rehab facility has the financial resources to invest in the best medical staff for people in recovery. State-funded facilities may not have the resources to have doctors, psychologists, and other medical professionals available for residents on a regular basis. But at a private treatment facility, residents can expect to get care whenever they need it. And because the facilities have the money to invest in building the best care and treatment teams residents will get a comprehensive treatment plan that will approach recovery from a holistic viewpoint.

More Privacy
At private detox facilities like Diamond House residents won’t have to share a room or a bathroom with anyone else. State-run treatment programs don’t have the space or the resources to give each person in recovery their own private room and bathroom. Often people will end up sharing space with several people depending on how crowded the facility is. Private rehab facilities in California are also usually set in peaceful and serene locations that allow residents to get the peace and quiet they need to focus on recovery.

More One on One Care
One on one treatment and accountability has been proven to increase the odds of success for those in recovery. But state-funded programs just don’t have the budget to provide the kind of personalized care that private facilities can offer. Private facilities can offer one on one medical care, counseling, and life coaching after detox so that people who are trying to learn how to live a sober life have the support they need to form new healthy habits and cope with problems in a healthy way.

More Comfortable Facilities
State-run detox and rehab facilities by necessity are pretty basic. There isn’t a lot of money for extra comforts or services. But private detox facilities can offer resort-like services and accommodations for residents who are on the path to sobriety. Comfortable rooms, extensive outdoor grounds and trails, a full staff and luxurious amenities are just some of the ways that a private facility is more comfortable than a state-run facility. Private rehab and detox facilities also offer healthy and high-quality meals that rival some of the best restaurant meals in the state.
