Do You Offer Detox Services?
Yes. Detox is a regular aspect of treatment for many individuals. Depending on your substance of choice and your long-term treatment location, your detox program may be conducted in the long-term treatment center where you'll get the majority of your treatment or it may happen off-site at a health organization that specializes solely in medically supervised detox programs.
What Types of Insurance do You Accept?
Each of our facilities takes different forms of insurance and, in addition, every health insurance policy is different from all others. You Admissions Advisor will determine your insurance benefits for you and give you options for treatment after benefits are verified.
Do You Have a Wait List?

What Should I Bring to Treatment?
This is an important question. Each of our facilities maintains different policies on what you can and can't bring to treatment. Most all agree you should bring 3-5 changes of clothes, exercise clothing and tennis shoes, basic toiletries and personal effects. If you are on prescription medication, tell your Admissions Advisor. Universally banned items include weapons, drugs, alcohol, pornography or any other potentially harmful or offensive material.
Is There a Blackout Period?
In many treatment centers it is common for new clients being admitted to have restricted communication with the outside word for days to a few weeks upon entry.

Admissions Advisors are able to help you understand rules of each facility. All facilities take special circumstances in to consideration.
What is Treatment Like?
Drug and alcohol treatment is different for everyone but there are common elements in most treatment centers. For example, you'll take part in group therapy, individual counseling, exercise and a scheduled day. Your program of treatment may include detox followed by 30, 60 or 90 days of treatment. During the final stages of long-term care, you begin aftercare planning where you'll make decisions about ongoing care and therapy as well as residential and occupational decision making if you need it.
Can I Leave Treatment?
