If you have done an honest evaluation of yourself and have come to the conclusion that you need to go to drug rehab and live in the state of Alabama, you are not alone. Statistics show that there continue to be wide use of illicit drugs all across the united states. Cocaine, Crystal Meth and Marijuana are still the top three drugs used in the state of Alabama. If you have found yourself in among these statics and in need of help, you may have asked the question “what do I have to do to go to drug rehabs in Alabama?”
Before you decide which drug rehabs in Alabama you would like to go to, there are several things that you will need to know first. First if you have health insurance, you will want to call them to see if your policy includes drug and alcohol treatment. Sometimes insurance companies will partner with certain facilities and may not pay for treatment at other locations. This is generally the case if you have a PPO which stands for Preferred Provider Option. This type of health insurance plan requires that you go to a specific list of doctors, hospitals, treatment centers as well as for testing. If you go to a doctor or facility outside the list, it is considered to be “out of network” which means that they may only pay a portion of the cost or in many cases none at all.
The second most important question is “what are the living arrangements like at the drug rehab treatment facility?” Due to limited space many drug rehabs require that you bunk up with other patients. You will not have the privacy that you may be used to at home. You may have to share a bathroom or even a television which can cause conflicts for some. You most likely will not be able to bring all the comforts of home. Things like laptops, cell phones and other electronic devices are not usually encouraged. Be sure to ask what if any things are you allowed to bring with you to drug rehabs in Alabama.
Finally but certainly not the least important is what kind of drug rehabilitation will you be receiving? Be sure that the drug rehab center is experienced and has the drugs typically used in treating your particular addiction. You will also want to ask about outpatient counseling after the treatment is over. Once you have gotten the answers to all of these questions, you will be in a better position to make a more informed decision about your treatment and focus on wellness.

The American Civil Liberties Union is suing to stop a new Alabama law that places additional requirements on girls seeking abortions without their parents' approval.
