The Process

Expand all Close all
  • How long does an addiction treatment program last?

    The duration of any kind of addiction treatment is dependent upon the condition of the patient, the type of addiction he is suffering from, and the severity of the effects of substance abuse. The treatment can be an outpatient treatment program or an inpatient one. If it’s the latter, the treatment can last as short as 28 days or as long as 120 days to a year. After graduating from rehab, there are also aftercare programs offered to help the patient keep his sobriety. These aftercare services will vary depending on the treatment facility and on the needs of the patient.

  • What are the different phases of addiction treatment?

    There are three stages of drug rehab.
    The first stageof drug rehab is intake and assessment. During this stage, the patient is checked and assessed. His physical condition and medical history will be checked, along with other important details to help the doctors come up with the most appropriate and customized treatment plan. The second stage is the medical detox. During this stage, the patient might be prescribed with medications to help him cope with the effects of his withdrawal. After detox, the formal treatment will begin, and the patient will be put into the treatment program determined during intake and assessment. The duration of the treatment will be dependent upon the needs and seriousness of the patient’s addiction.

  • Will the patient’s family be involved in the treatment process?

    Depending on the treatment program advised, there might be family group programs that will be scheduled to revel and understand the relationship patterns of the patient and to help the family members deal with the adverse effects of addiction.

  • Are visitors allowed during admittance at inpatient treatment facilities?

    Rules vary from one treatment facility to another; however, most treatment facilities allow visitations during certain times on weekends. The rule on visitation is solely at the discretion of the rehab facility and as such, they reserve the right to prohibit a certain individual from visiting if they deem it unhealthy for the patient.

  • How can you pay for addiction treatment?

    There are various ways to pay for addiction treatment and rehab. One of the easiest ways to pay is by paying it personally. However, if you cannot afford to pay for your own treatment in cash, you can avail of the coverage of your insurance provider. Consult with your insurance representative as to what is covered by your policy. If, for instance, you don’t have a private insurance policy, you can be able to opt for public insurance. The latter option is less expensive but might also have some restrictions.
