4 Benefits of Traveling for Addiction Treatment

traveling for addiction treatment
Once you’ve decided to seek addiction treatment, you might be wondering whether you should travel or stay close to home. Traveling for addiction treatment isn’t for everyone. But if your community doesn’t have high-quality treatment available and/or you’re looking for a fresh start away from triggers in your home environment, traveling for addiction treatment might be a worthy consideration. 

Here, we take a look at some of the key benefits of traveling for treatment:
  1. You’ll have more choices. Obviously, expanding your rehab search to others cities and states means you’ll have more choices when it comes to finding the right treatment fit for you – depending on type of addiction treatment, insurance, financial situation, interests, goals, etc. 
  2. You’ll gain perspective. The physical distance between yourself and your triggers can help you look at your old habits through a more objective lens. It may even help further reduce your desire to use.
  3. You’ll have fewer distractions. Traveling for treatment makes it easier to completely immerse yourself in the recovery process – without family, friends and stressors of daily life. Removing yourself from triggering people and situations has been shown to improve treatment outcomes and help those in recovery better manage these triggers once they return home.
  4. You’ll have more privacy. If you’re worried about privacy or protecting your reputation, attending treatment outside of your community may be the right choice.  Although, any reputable addiction treatment center will mostly place a premium on privacy.
