Traveling out of state to treat addiction allows you or your loved one the opportunity to be separated from old neighborhoods, drug dealers, destructive habits and circumstances, which enable drinking or drug use. Traveling out of state for treatment is often recommended as a necessary step for success; therefore, it is an important decision in the recovery process.
Why Travel for Treatment?
Treatment options range from long-term inpatient therapy to short-term outpatient therapy and many options in between.[i] It is always best to choose a treatment setting that fits your unique needs to give you the best chance at recovery.
