Drug Recovery Programs FAQ

Do you have a specific question that you haven’t seen an answer to yet? Browse the following frequently asked questions that we have prepared to help provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision on your recovery needs.

How long should drug addiction treatment ideally last?

Many addiction recovery programs span 30 days or fewer, but recent research has revealed that longer periods of treatment reduce the risk of relapse and foster more stability in a recovering addict’s life.

In fact, the National Institute on Drug Abuse has declared 90 consecutive days of treatment to be the new gold standard for addiction recovery programs. If you have the means to stay even longer in treatment or to join a sober home afterward, than your chances of long-term sobriety continue to increase.

Now, not all 90 days of treatment need to be in an inpatient program. Even if you do some combination of inpatient, partial hospitalization and outpatient care, your chances of success are much higher then if you only did 30 days of treatment.

Can you only pay for addiction treatment with insurance or out of pocket?

Many addiction treatment facilities accept insurance, but that doesn’t necessarily mean your plan will be approved. And even if it is approved, it may not cover the entire length of treatment you need. Thus, many individuals potentially face out-of-pocket costs when embarking on a rehab trip.

Thankfully, many rehab programs offer scholarships and financial aid (aka loans) to help clients cover some of the costs. Some clients get creative and reach out to local organizations about rehab scholarship opportunities. If you go to an outpatient program, you should have enough time to work on the side, which will help you pay for your treatment.

If you reach out to Emerge And See for help in finding a treatment program, we will help you determine what your insurance provider will cover and what your out-of-pocket expenses are, if any. We can also point you to resources for scholarship and financial aid opportunities.

Do I need detox treatment before starting a rehab program?

In most cases, yes. Think about all of the toxins that have built up in your body and how your tolerance to your substance of choice has increased. If you’re truly addicted, then suddenly refraining from that substance will almost always induce an uncomfortable, even violent, withdrawal period.

If you’re addicted to a substance like alcohol, heroin, benzodiazepines, opioids or cocaine, then you’re certainly going to need medical assistance during withdrawal. This treatment will not only keep you alive amid potentially severe symptoms such as seizures and blood pressure drops and rises, but it should also keep you relatively comfortable during the withdrawal process.

The good news is that many drug recovery programs offer detox treatment before the rehab period begins. But if you find a facility that doesn’t, Emerge And See can help connect you to all necessary programs to cover all stages of treatment.

Should I undergo treatment near home or far away?

Just as we tend to recommend starting with an inpatient program instead of outpatient treatment, we also generally recommend undergoing treatment far away from home, such as out of state or across state.

If you think about it, an addict’s hometown and even the home itself allowed the addiction to thrive. These spots have been compromised, at least temporarily. The individual should step out of that environment and attempt to rebuild his or her life against a different backdrop.

We know not everybody’s circumstances are going to allow them to attend an inpatient rehab program in another state. But, keep in mind these are the ideal conditions to foster successful recovery – along with long-term treatment, of course.

Not sure which treatment program is right for you or your loved one? Is your loved one refusing to go to treatment? Emerge And See is here to offer solutions.

Understanding the Different Levels of Treatment

The three main levels of care in the addiction rehab journey are Detox, Inpatient and Outpatient. But, there are other stages related to the addiction treatment process, such as Intervention, Aftercare and Sober Living.

Let’s start by taking a closer look at the three most prominent levels of addiction care:

Addiction Detox

Often the first step in an addiction recovery journey, detoxification is the process of having harmful substances removed from the body. Detox should always be done in a professional environment where the individual can be monitored 24/7 by a medical professional. The detox process can last anywhere from 24 hours to a few days or even a few weeks depending on the severity of the addiction.

Inpatient Treatment

Also known as residential treatment, inpatient treatment is the primary program, provided to those who are addicted to substances and need 30-90 days of intensive care to treat the mind, body and soul. Long term recovery is dependent on the right care. Anyone entering an inpatient addiction rehab should be provided with a custom care plan that considers each individual’s unique needs.

Outpatient Programs

Often paired with partial hospitalization or intensive outpatient options, an outpatient program allows the client to live off site from the treatment facility, while attending classes and therapy sessions only during specific hours. The schedule is based on the specific needs of that individual. Once outpatient care is completed, the individual can transition into an aftercare program.
