How Long Should I Stay in Treatment for My Addiction?January 15, 2016 - Addiction, Alcohol and Drug, Detox, insurance, Treatment - 0 Comments
Our counselors know that addicts are concerned about how long a treatment plan lasts in order to make plans. Residential programs are vital for overcoming an addiction, and abusers require a minimum of a 30-day stay to learn coping mechanisms to prevent a relapse. It is important to remember that you will need at least three days of detoxification before beginning the rehabilitation process.
What Level of Care is Available in a Rehabilitation Facility?
Before entering a detoxification program, we ask questions about your particular type of addiction, including the dosages you have been using and how long you have been addicted. We recommend residential treatment rather than outpatient programs for a minimum of 30 days. Our facilities have counselors who are available on a 24-hour basis to provide help when it is needed.
Will Other People Find Out About Your Addiction Treatment?
Addiction treatment is a private process, but there are other patients in the facility at the same time. Our counselors strive to keep a patient’s treatment private according to federal laws. We have office staff who will need to contact your insurance provider to collect information to receive reimbursement for treatment. At some point in your treatment, we suggest having your relatives and friends visit for counseling.
Who will Answer Questions about Addiction Treatment?
During the detoxification phase, our clients have more opportunities to ask questions about treatment plans. While a 30-day stay is acceptable for some patients, other addicts require a longer rehabilitative process for 60 to 90 days. There are facilities that offer holistic treatments such as meditation or acupuncture, and facilities that only accept a few clients at a time.
How Do Clients Pay for Substance Abuse Treatment?
When we discuss treatment with clients, our employees learn more about private and employer-sponsored insurance plans to help determine the amount of time permitted in a facility. While your insurance provider might limit you to 30 days of treatment, we can often find other ways for you to pay for a longer stay.
What Happens When the Treatment Time Ends?
Our clients transition from closely supervised treatment to independence in a sober house or outpatient treatment facility.
