Private heroin addiction treatment centers often possess the resources to track outcomes with integrity. This allows you to know that your loved one is going to a facility that will teach the tools necessary to stay sober. At that point, it is up to the addicted loved one to put the tools into practice. The best way to find out what centers are reputable is to talk with someone in recovery. Make sure they aren't compensated by the facility as a paid referrer. Please see "How to Choose a Good Drug Rehab" for more information on determining an appropriate facility for your loved one.
