Knowing the type of accessible medical professionals at a facility can be the line between safe treatment and unsafe treatment. An appropriate addiction and mental health treatment center should have full-time medical staff who are on-site and accessible at all times should an emergency arise with one of their clients. Ask facilities if they have part-time or full-time medical staff and if their medical staff is on-site or is utilized through “telemedicine”, a format where the medical doctor is in a different location and not meeting with the individual in person at any time during their stay.
