When you or a loved one is affected by addiction, it can be hard to get all the facts. Here at Recommended Rehabs we want to make the process easy for you. Below are a list of commonly asked questions and answers that we hope will make the process of getting help for a drug and alcohol problem easy.

What is a Drug Rehab?

Drug rehabs are facilities where those affected by drug and alcohol addiction can find help for their particular issue. They include structured programs and a variety of services to assist addicts in finding a new life without drugs and alcohol.

What is the Process of Treatment for Addiction?

Once you or your loved one decides to get help for addiction, there are different levels of care offered depending upon your individual needs. The typical process for drug treatment is:

1. Detox: When a person makes the decision to get help for their drug and alcohol problem, detox is most often the first step in that process. During detox, you will be closely monitored by dedicated medical staff who may use medications to manage withdrawal symptoms and assist in tapering you off drugs and alcohol. Detox can last from 7-10 days in most cases, however certain drugs can require a longer detox process.

2. Inpatient Rehab: After detox is complete, the next step for most people is to enter treatment at an inpatient, residential facility. Inpatient care utilizes individual treatment plans, substance abuse therapies, individual and group therapy, case monitoring, relapse prevention, life-skills training, aftercare planning and more to help clients learn how to live without drugs and alcohol. Typically, inpatient treatment lasts anywhere from 30-90 days depending on your individual needs.

3. Intensive Outpatient: Once a person completes inpatient rehab, they will be referred to an intensive outpatient program—or IOP—to help them assimilate back into everyday life. Studies show that attending an IOP increases an addict’s odds of continued abstinence without relapse. Intensive outpatient programs can last anywhere from 90 days to 6 months, and usually take place in group settings, 3-5 days a week. Those who cannot afford to enter inpatient treatment may find IOP to be an excellent option for recovery.

4. Sober Living: A sober living home, or halfway house, is a structured, sober living environment for those in recovery. Clients are usually expected to undergo random drug testing, to participate in a recovery program and to abide by house rules to ensure a safe and sober living environment for all residents new to recovery.

Can Attending a Drug Rehab Cure Addiction?

There currently is no known cure for addiction, but it can be managed. Many people assume that once a person completes rehab they are cured of drug and alcohol addiction, but that is not the case. Recovery from drugs and alcohol is a lifelong process that involves daily maintenance of the individual’s personal recovery program.

How Much Does Drug Treatment Cost?

Drug treatment programs vary in price depending upon the level of care, amenities, length of care, and location. Luxury treatment centers will cost more than other facilities offering standard amenities and treatment. These factors can cause the cost of treatment to vary from facility to facility.

How Will I Pay for Drug Rehab?

Most drug rehabs accept insurance however, your cost for treatment will depend on your insurance plan.
