Questions to Ask Your Sobriety Center

Questions to Ask Your Sobriety Center; Sobriety Options

Getting sober is a massive decision to make for anyone, and it comes with many unknowns. Before you enter a sobriety center, it’s important to ask the right questions to ensure you can reach your full sobriety goals within the facility. Whether you’re inquiring for yourself or a loved one, it’s important that you do your due diligence when selecting a sobriety center. The choice to enter sober living treatment often comes in the wake of hitting “rock bottom,” and it may be challenging to identify the questions to ask when choosing a sobriety center. To make this process easier, we’ve compiled some of the top questions to ask your sober living provider.

  1. What Treatment Styles Do You Specialize in?

Different treatment styles work for different people, and no two recovery journeys are the same. Inquiring about the different treatment styles is the first question you should ask to see if they offer services that will work for you or your loved one. At Sobriety Options we offer alcohol detox and drug detox treatment options, as well as medication assisted treatment, dual diagnosis treatment, residential treatment options, and aftercare sober living. Whether you’re looking for long-term sober living support or out-patient support, Sobriety Options offers a wide variety of services to accommodate many different individuals. 

  1. What Type of Insurance Do You Take?

For most people, paying out of pocket for medical treatment can be devastating. It’s imperative that you get a clear understanding of what type of insurance they take and what payment plans, if any, are offered. Seeking sobriety should not put you or your loved ones into financial trouble, which is why Sobriety Options takes a wide variety of insurances and is always willing to work with our clients to get them the help they need.

  1. What are the Initial Intake Steps?

The first 48 hours after arriving at a sobriety center are crucial. At Sobriety Options treatment centers we have crafted a meaningful, welcoming environment that allows patients to feel at home. It’s important to ask your sobriety center how they approach their intake process. Is there a lot of paperwork? How much paperwork is able to be completed before arriving? What documentation will be needed? Is payment due up front? These are all intake considerations you must think about when selecting a sobriety center to ensure there are no surprises. 

  1. How do they Approach Detox Treatment?

Before you can get sober, you must undergo a detox period. When it comes to alcohol detox the withdrawal side effects can be quite harmful if attempted without medical supervision. The same goes for most drug detox processes, which is why it is best to go through drug and alcohol detox under the careful watch of licensed medical staff. At Sobriety Options, we utilize medical detox services to aid out patients in the safe withdrawal off of the substances they use. Medical detox has been proven to yield long lasting results that end in sustainable sober living.

  1. Is it Possible to Transition from In-Patient to Partial Hospitalization?

The sobriety process is rarely linear, which is why it’s valuable to have a sobriety center that is able to adapt to changing needs and circumstances. It is best to begin the journey to sobriety in an intensive, residential treatment facility to ensure consistency and stability. It’s also important to understand your options as you evolve through the process. For some, staying inpatient at a sobriety center is what they require to have lasting success. For others, they are ready to make the transition to a partial hospitalization program or intensive outpatient treatment.

Know Your Options Ahead of Time

It’s important to enter a sobriety center with a clear understanding of what to expect, and what’s expected of you. At Sobriety Options, we communicate openly to offer detox and rehab treatments that yield long lasting results.
