Q: How do I know if addiction is affecting me?
A: Addiction is defined by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIH) as a chronic disease in which individuals keep using substances no matter the negative consequences. So, if you have tried to stop drinking or using drugs and failed, or if you use despite the harmful impact on your life, you may be struggling with addiction. It’s important to recognize the signs of addiction before it causes severe damage or death.
Q: How long is your treatment program?
A: Each treatment program track is specifically individualized to meet the needs of a specific patient. For this reason, each patient’s suggested stay will differ. Generally, if the individual has not gained any prior treatment, we will suggest a 30-45 day stay in our residential housing for day treatment before moving on to the next phase. Our treatment program in NC has many amenities to keep patients busy doing their stay.
Q: I struggle with mental health issues along with substance addiction. Can Rehab Carolinas help me, too?
A: At Rehab Carolinas, we provide a dual diagnosis program, which means that we offer support for individuals who are struggling with both addiction and mental disorders concurrently. By addressing both conditions at the same time, individuals can learn how each condition affects the other. By offering individuals diagnosed with mental conditions dual diagnosis programs, they have a better chance at obtaining long-term recovery.
Q: Is there any other therapy or care that is aimed towards treating other problems, rather than addiction?
A: We know that addiction is a disease that is not custom to a specific demographic. As a result, it affects each individual differently. We also understand that addiction may be a condition developed as a result of underlying issues. For effective treatment, we work to identify and confront these underlying issues so that true healing can take place. Alternative care offered during treatment may include yoga, meditation, chiropractic care, trauma therapy, family counseling, and more.
Q: Will my family be a part of my addiction treatment?
A: Yes. Addiction doesn’t just affect the user. It affects family, friends, and loved ones. Throughout treatment, it’s usually helpful to include the family so that healthy boundaries can be set and healing can take place. Our clinical director has years of experience in the field of family therapy, and our program mirrors the important aspects of maintaining healthy relationships. Family relationships are important to an individual’s chance for recovery success, so we offer family recovery services via telephone conversations throughout a patient’s time in treatment.
Q: What happens after treatment ends?
A: Recovery isn’t over once treatment ends. Usually, 30 days in residential treatment is not enough to learn all that a patient needs to step back into the daily routine of life without using drugs or alcohol. So, once treatment concludes, it’s suggested that individuals take advantage of outpatient treatment and/or sober living environments that offer a slower transition back into society with minimal hours spent in treatment therapies during the week. Upon enrollment, we can help you to determine post-treatment options so that you can be confident with your next step for recovery.
Q: What is your stance on confidentiality?
A: We are bound by confidentiality to our patients under all circumstances. Your medical records, treatment specifics, and conversations during therapy will remain between you and us unless you have specifically stated otherwise. The only time we have means to breach confidentiality is to protect patients against harming themselves or others.
Q: How much does addiction treatment at Rehab Carolinas cost?
A: Because we offer different forms of treatment and each patient’s program track differs, addiction treatment cost is different for each patient. But, we do accept forms of insurance that could perhaps cover the entire cost of your stay with us. Our admissions team will work with both you and your insurance company to get the means for your stay. If you have little or no health insurance coverage for treatment, we can accept alternate forms of payment, set up payment plans, and keep in mind monetary budgets while determining treatment tracks.
Q: What is addiction treatment at Rehab Carolinas like?
A: We are a small, intimate program that provides individualized care for each specific patient.
