Have Your Questions Ready
It often helps to write down some questions and concerns about residential treatment before you call or email—that way, you have a detailed checklist that applies directly to your circumstances.
Some factors to consider on your list include learning about:
- The treatment philosophy and approach of the facility, including co-occurring disorders, detoxification programs, medication management, types of counseling and therapeutic methods, addiction education for family members, discharge planning, relapse prevention, and aftercare options.
- Practicalities such as accepted insurance, rates for services, payment plans, and what determines recommended length of stay.
- Features of the facility, such as the atmosphere, rooming situations, meal and snack services, types of structured activities, recreational options, and family and friends visitation.
Anything that’s a concern to you is a concern to us, especially in emergency situations, so don’t hesitate to ask.
