5 Reasons Why Traveling for Rehab Can Help Your Recovery

There are quality and effective drug & alcohol treatment centers all over the country, and likely several even in your home town. However, for some, deciding to go to out of state rehab is the best case scenario to jump-start your recovery. We know that everyone’s needs are different when it comes to treatment, but we know that there are a few benefits of choosing an out-of-state rehab:

5 Reasons to Travel Out-Of-State for Rehab:

1. Remove Yourself or Your Loved One From the Normal Routine

People may need a dramatic change of scenery to help break bad habits. Being in close proximity to the same people, places and activities that were a part of your life during addiction may increase temptations and not allow you to create the break through you need during treatment. It is important create new experiences, and get out of your comfort zone, through a holistic set of therapies & activities focused on healing your mind, body & spirit.

2. Commitment to Completing a Program

By leaving your comfort zone and traveling out of state to seek drug or alcohol treatment, you are making it harder to leave treatment, which is of course a good thing. Yes, checking into an addiction rehab program is typically voluntary, so you can leave at any time. If a person wants to leave they are welcome to walk out at any time. When friends or family are close by, the idea of leaving doesn’t seem so bad. For some, one of the main reasons to go to rehab is to get some time away from any negative influences that are contributing to an addiction. Adding the extra challenge of a long trip or plane ticket may cause someone to think twice and consider completing the program. And, of course, finishing the program is recommended: in fact, it dramatically increases the chances of long-term sobriety.

3. Eliminate Distractions

When deciding if out-of-state rehab is the right choice, remember that an addict can remove themselves from the distractions of home. They can focus on taking control of their own life, and more easily eliminate the distractions & drama going on at home. Focus on understanding your own problems and getting better, focus on sobriety. Besides, there’s no better place to focus on yourself than in a luxury addiction treatment environment.

4. Confidentiality & Privacy

Seeking rehabilitation from your addiction is a seriously personal decision. Patients often feel more willing to talk about their problems to medical staff & even peers if they know there is no connection to home. You can have peace of mind that while you are recovering, you will not bump into anybody at the grocery store or in the park. Sure, it will be challenging to explain where you or your loved one is going, but Footprints Beachside Recovery is here to help with those tough conversations & decisions.
