does rehab always take place out of state?

When I speak to people about their treatment experiences or if I watch intervention, I notice that a lot of people (the vast majority) go out of state? What are the benefits of going out of state to treatment? and does treatment always take place out of state? I'm trying to figure out the best route to go..

Treatment doesn't have to take place out of state. Out-of-state rehab is a good way to remove you from the life of active addiction. Distractions will be far away and temptations to give up won't be as strong. You'll be in a supportive environment that immerses you in the treatment program so that you're faced with the old triggers only after you've completed the program and have some coping skills in place that will help you avoid relapsing.

It helps to be removed from the area. I went to one that was in my home town - okay to be honest I went to a few in my home town but it was so easy to leave that I always did. It wasn't until my parents shipped e off to another state (I wasn't happy about it at the time) that I actually stayed long enough to get the help i needed. im so grateful that even though it wasnt what i wanted at the time my parents made me go out of state.

I've been to rehab in Arizona where I live and I went out of state to Colorado. Let me put it this way: I went to rehab 3x in Arizona and Colorado once. For me, I had to remove myself from my whole life in order to leave the past behind and start over again. After about 3 months in Colorado, I came home and continued to go to meetings. I'm still clean! Everyone is different. Some people will do better in state close to supportive family and friends. Others, like me, only have a chance if we are properly removed from the life.
