How do I know if I really need drug rehabilitation?

Understanding drug addiction is a complicated process, but if you are asking the question, chances are you are in need of help. When your addiction overrides other priorities in your life, such as work, school, or relationships, rehabilitation and treatment is necessary to stop the cycle of drug abuse. Additionally, any habitual usage or symptoms of dependency should be treated very seriously, as these signs are often indicative of early-stage drug addiction. Regardless of the extent of your personal addiction, recovery should always be conducted in a safe and nurturing environment and with the supervision of a medical expert. Any attempts to treat a drug addiction alone or without proper medical oversight is dangerous and often ineffective. So if you know you are experiencing addiction, please let Recovery Centers of America help.

How long will my drug rehabilitation take?

Based on research from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), individuals who commit to a 90-day track of treatment have the highest probability of remaining sober after treatment has concluded. Recovery Centers of America recommends 30 days of inpatient drug treatment followed by a commitment to at least 60 days of outpatient care after discharge. If you’re wondering whether it’s the right time for drug rehabilitation, call 1-800-RECOVERY and our care advocates can provide more information about treatment timelines.

Can my family visit while I’m receiving treatment?

During the initial drug detox period, which lasts anywhere from 4-7 days, family members are granted limited visitation access and are required to have a counselor present. Following the drug detoxification period, family members and friends are allowed to visit during specified visitation hours.

Throughout a patient’s stay, Recovery Centers of America encourages families to be onsite to participate in family education and work with a therapist either as a group or individually.

How do I tell my kid I’m going to rehab?

We recommend having an honest discussion with your children about entering into drug rehabilitation treatment. If you are unsure about how to discuss treatment with your family, Recovery Centers of America has on-staff interventionists and therapists who can guide you through the process of communicating with your kids and family members.

Can I die from drug detoxification or rehabilitation treatments?

The reactions to unmedicated detoxification from drugs and alcohol can be life-threatening if a medical professional is not present. Recovery Centers of America does not recommend non-medicated or self-medicated detoxification at home for this reason. Our trained clinical staff medicates patients appropriately and follows a personalized regimen for professional and safe detoxification.

Will my insurance cover my drug addiction treatments?

Recovery Centers of America is committed to providing treatment to as many patients as possible which is why our facilities are in-network with most insurance providers. If you need help with drug addiction, our financial counselors can work with you to verify your insurance for free and understand what your insurance plan covers.

Additionally, we facilitate payment plans to families requiring assistance with out-of-pocket expenses, which usually amount to no more than $2,500. To date, Recovery Centers of America has provided over $4.5 million in scholarships to patients who needed financial help. We will do everything we can to ensure finances do not prevent you from receiving drug addiction treatment.

Can I lose my job if my employer learns of my drug addiction?

While employers can terminate your employment if your substance abuse previously affected  your job performance or is in direct violation of company policies, you will not lose a job as a direct result of your drug addiction treatment and rehabilitation. Individuals who enter into treatment are protected under the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), and qualifying employees are also granted 12 weeks of unpaid leave from a job through the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA). Recovery Centers of America has specialized individuals on staff who work with patients and employers to ensure job security during and after treatment. Recovery Centers of America abides by HIPAA laws and will not disclose drug addiction treatment to your employer unless we have your consent to do so.

Will drug rehab show up on my background check?

No, Recovery Centers of America is governed by HIPAA and the federal law 42 CFR to maintain confidentiality and patient privacy. In the states RCA operates, there are strict laws that prevent staff members from releasing any information without the written consent of the patient. Therefore, drug rehabilitation and treatment will not show up on your background check.

Will I go to jail after seeking drug rehabilitation treatments?

You will not be incarcerated as a direct result of your drug treatment. Recovery Centers of America is governed by HIPAA and abides by federal law 42 CFR, and is required to keep patient information confidential and private. We will not disclose your participation in drug rehabilitation treatment to law enforcement or any other third party without your consent.

Is it possible to fail rehab?
