Why California Rehabs are Leading the Field

Recovery cannot be achieved without obtaining personal growth. A person can lose 50 pounds, but if they haven’t changed their eating habits, the weight will just come back. Such is true on the topic of addiction. One can go through treatment and be clean for 60 days, only to be tossed back into their old environment and familiar ways.

Without that personal growth, time to learn, it’s pretty unlikely that one would stay clean. Today, most rehabilitation centers are aware of this and offer therapy alongside the traditional medicated responses to addiction.

While every state has centers that can help, some of the top rehab centers are in California. There are a number of ways that a person might be prompted to go to rehab. Whether voluntarily or forced by court order, rehab is the first step to recovery.

While having the best of everything to ensure quality care and good results, it comes at a price. Recovery Brands did a survey on what people thought the most important part of their rehab experience was about. At no surprise, people wanted a facility that had a variety of financial options so that they could afford treatment in the first place. After money, quality of food and other comforts were listed.

California may have some of the best facilities, but they are also very expensive. While the nature of the visit is, of course, more severe, one should really shop around treatment centers the same way you would a hotel or car. Find the place that has the amenities and options that are the best fit for you. Most places will work with you - money should never be a reason why a person could not receive treatment.

Contrary to popular belief, a person who is forced into a rehab center, either by court order or other means, they can still achieve the same level of recovery as someone who voluntarily signed up. The reason is that most programs utilize some form of a 12-step journey. A person who voluntarily went to rehab could very well end up relapsing if something about them did not change. Personal growth is such a vital part of rehabilitation. Without the change in your mindset, you cannot ever fully recover. The typical 12 step program allows you to admit to the problem and then doing everything in your power to change how you do things. Someone forced into rehab will benefit just as much, as they learn how they hurt others and miss out on a whole other life.

Finding a facility should not be overwhelming. A simple internet search will give you thousands of results. Just know what you’re looking for before you begin. If money is no object, then best California rehab center is as easy as you can make it. However, since those places can cost upwards of $180,000 per month, it’s not unwise to search for something a little more modest. Of the more affordable centers, you could see price ranges from $7,500 to $20,000.

One could think, “Is that really worth the price?” The answer is an undeniable yes. While the severity of habits can vary, even a modest budget of a hardcore cocaine user could spend upwards of $80 per day on their addiction. That’s over $2,200 a month, and $27,000 per year, on the most minimum estimate of a user.

Some people spend decades on their habit before they either get into recovery or die. In that span, they easily spend hundreds of thousands of dollars a year. Far less than the initial cost of going to rehab to get clean.

While money is important, obtaining treatment worth it. If you have the right insurance coverage or fall under the plan of someone who does, then costs can be significantly lowered and that small amount of stress can be lifted.

Recovery requires a full change. During the course of treatment, one will deal with the issues such as why they became addicted in the first place, and how they’re going to change it. Change is based on planning and goals. You make the change when you achieve those goals and make those plans. It’s important to make goals for oneself. Without something to look forward to, it’s no surprise that many people relapse.

Whether you’re looking for yourself or someone else, find the facility that seems right for you. They’ll be willing to work with you to fit your needs as it is the common goal for everyone to find help for the person who needs it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
