Should I Get Addiction Treatment Locally or Away?

This is a common question for substance users seeking help for addiction. If you ask this question of any treatment program, their answer will be totally dependent on whether you live close to them or farther away. More than anything they want you to choose their facility, so if they are far away they will say it’s good for you to get away so you can get out of your comfort zone to gain new perspectives, and also stay focused on your treatment without distractions. If they are closer to your home they may tell you that it’s best to seek help close to your family for support. The truth is both answers are right. There are pros and cons to going close to home and going farther away. The most important factor when choosing a treatment program is not location, but whether or not the program will actually help you to solve your problem.
