Is There a Blackout Period?

  • While in the detox phase of the program (normally the first 7-10 days) you will be in the blackout phase. You will be able to contact friends, family and other loves ones upon admissions to inform them you have made it safely.  After that, there will be no access to contact anyone until you have graduated from detox, to the RTC level of care.  Once you are in the RTC level of care you will have access to the house phone on a limited basis contingent upon how well you are working the program.

Can My Family and Friends Contact Me?

Yes. Upon arrival you will be asked to put consent on file for loved ones that will be allowed to receive updates about your progress. If a loved one calls in, and the client has not put that person on file for consent, we can not confirm or deny they are in our care.

Can My Family and Friends Visit Me?

Your Primary Therapist can help you schedule family and friend visitation after the blackout period ends and when they think it is clinically appropriate.

Do You Accept All Types of Insurance?

We accept insurance from many different insurance providers, however, we do not accept state sponsored insurance policies. The best way to find out if your insurance will cover the cost of treatment is to let our Admission Advisors contact your insurance company and verify your benefits so you don’t have to.

What is the Difference Between a Subscriber and the Client/Patient?

The “Subscriber” is the person who obtains insurance for a Client or Patient. For example, a Subscriber can be a Mom, Dad, or Spouse and the Client might be a child of the Subscriber. You can also be the Subscriber and the Client if you have obtained a policy of health insurance for yourself.

Can You Help Me Get to Treatment?

Yes. Our Admission Advisors schedule travel both to and from treatment for you if needed.

Do Your Facilities Offer Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)?

Yes. However MAT is optional during and after the residential portion of treatment. If you need to detox, our facilities also offer 24 hour round the clock monitoring supervised by qualified medical staff and they will assess your individual needs for prescription medication during the detox period which typically lasts 7-10 days.

Do You Offer Ongoing Treatment After the Residential Program?

Yes. Staff at our locations can help people throughout the spectrum of care for substance use disorders from detox to outpatient programs and even sober living options.

Do You Offer Intervention Services?

Yes, our Admissions Advisors can help refer you to a qualified Interventionist.
