Should You Trust Online Reviews About a Rehab Center

When someone struggling with an addiction realizes they need help, or their family is searching for help for them, there is often confusion as to which rehab center to choose.  There are a multitude of treatment centers out there, so sorting through them can be quite arduous at times.  Generally, one of the factors looked to for any treatment center and many other types of institutions these days is online reviews.  While online reviews can provide an insight about a place, there are also other things to keep in mind when looking at reviews between facilities.

What to Pay Attention to and What to Avoid in Online Reviews

When looking over reviews, there are a few important things to look for that can be very good indicators of the facility.  One of such is posted videos and quoted testimonies.  These give the words directly from the horse’s mouth per say, and allow the individuals and their families to dictate their experience of the center.  You can hear how it truly helped the person and their family move past the addiction.  These stories from individuals who have directly experienced the success of the center have some of the most powerful impact and can show you the capacity of the center to help individuals overcome addiction.

There can be certain things to look for in reviews that can be indicative of slander or carping criticism.  Something to remember with rehab is that some people do not make it through and leave early to go back to using substances.  As unfortunate as that is, these people often times will slander or criticize a center for everything they can to try justify why they left instead of admitting it was to go back to using.  This is obviously not to say that nobody can ever have a bad experience, but the reality is that these need to be taken with a very large grain of salt.

Online reviews can be a very valuable tool, as long as you stay aware of the above.  You can watch videos, video tours, read testimonies and success stories to get a feel of the center you are looking at attending.  It allows you to make a much more informed decision upon whose hands you place yours or your loved ones chance at recovery.  Simply be sure to remain vigilant of slander, and websites that focus solely on slander, since you are never going to get the full picture from those.  Use reviews as a tool to gain a little more insight, but in the end it is important to talk directly to the advisors at a center to get the full and truthful data about it.
