8 Questions You Should Ask of Any Treatment Facility

If you or someone you love has a problem with addiction to alcohol, drugs, prescription medication, or co-related addictions to behaviors such as gambling, spending, food or sex, you should ask these important questions for a rehab facility before you select a treatment program for that person.

Here are a few that you should ask:

1. What sets you apart from other addiction treatment facilities?
First and foremost, our doctors set us apart. We are fortunate to have four ASAM certified addiction medicine doctors on our team. They are highly qualified and work with patients throughout their treatment. We have several offices located throughout the south Louisiana, and can accommodate patients at any treatment level.
2. Is your program covered by my insurance?
Addiction Recovery Resources is very insurance friendly. We pride ourselves on being one of the most contracted facilities in the nation. Without verifying benefits, we cannot say 100% what services will or will not be covered, but we will verify your benefits at no cost to you. We look forward to finding the services that will help you or your loved one.
3. How much does your program cost?
This answer is based on the level of care and services needed. We work with most insurance companies and accept private payment at all levels of care. The average private pay cost for a 90-day program is $25,000.
4. How long does a person stay in your program?
This truly depends on the person and the plan that they create with their doctor and case manager. Outcomes show that the longer someone is in treatment, the higher success rate they have. After the initial assessment, we are able to place clients at their appropriate level of care, which affects the length of the treatment program.
5. Are visitors allowed?
Visitors are allowed. We have set times for visiting and these are given to each client upon admission to our residential drug and alcohol treatment program.
6. What is your treatment approach to addiction?
We use ASAM criteria and believe strongly in the 12-Step model. Our experience and outcomes have shown that those who choose to participate in a 12-step fellowship upon discharge have far greater chances of long term recovery without relapse.
7. What if I have a dual diagnosis?
Our doctors treat dual diagnoses often. Dual diagnosis can mean many things. For most patients, it means a primary diagnosis of addiction with a secondary problem of anxiety, depression, or PTSD. The Addiction Recovery Resources treatment team is very skilled at treating these issues. Please don’t hesitate to call to speak with one of our admission specialists.
8. What is your policy on tobacco use?
We have designated smoking areas at our facilities. If you are a smoker and wish to quit, our doctors can assist with cessation. We will allow adequate times and breaks for smokers.

If you are a potential the patient or a significant other with other questions not addressed herein please call our Metairie or New Orleans rehab facility at 1 866 399 HOPE (4679).
