90-Day treatment programs are wonderful treatment models for those who are dealing with substance use disorders. They are among the most effective treatment models in the United States. The programs are designed to give optimal time for the healing of the brain and help individuals adjust to the mental aspect of being alcohol or drug-free in their lives.

 Most substance use disorder treatment programs will offer different lengths of stay for people in need of treatment.

However, this is not a comprehensive list but a basic listing of services you will need to consider when choosing a 90-day treatment program.

Cost of Treatment

The cost of all healthcare has skyrocketed in recent years. Medical and Behavioral health programs are not decreasing but are on the rise. Even with the increase in the cost of treatment, there are still some national providers of substance use disorder treatment that are effective and realistic in the cost for treatment services. Remember cost is not an indicator of one program is more effective than another program. So, don’t let the sticker shock of private pay treatment keep you from searching for the best possible option for your financial ability to pay for treatment. Many treatment programs will work with you on these matters. Just talk to the admission specialist and discuss financial matters like any other matters that you need to discuss with them.

Looking for Opioid Treatment?

With the current crisis across the nation regarding Opioids there are many programs that have been successfully dealing with Opioid Use Disorders. The process begins with reaching out for help from an addiction treatment program. Addiction treatment centers that have a medical detoxification program are well equipped with the ability to safely detox and individual from opioids, and they do this under the care of medical professionals.

How to ask for help?

Depending on your location and state that you are located will depend on the local providers available to you. You can contact the government agency SAMHSA which is the Substance Abuse Mental Health Service Administration, and they have a wonderful search feature to help you find local providers. Many addiction treatment programs are in other states. Sometimes getting out of a specific area for confidentiality purposes and other reasons like temptations to drug dealers, using friends, or mental cues that make it difficult to stop opioids is another option.

The treatment you can Afford?

If you have no funding and need indigent care, you can contact inside your state the state funding resources in your state. Usually, your state will have an agency that is dedicated to overseeing the state funding beds available. Start by doing an internet search for substance use treatment state-funded treatment. Look for government websites in your state that are either mental health or substance use disorder departments. You can contact SAMHSA for a phone number.

Treatment Centers that accept Private Pay?

If you can pay privately, you can find very affordable medical detoxification programs and residential treatment programs. These programs are high-quality treatment programs that are dedicated to helping you get free from opioids.

If you have private insurance, you can contact a treatment provider and discuss with that treatment provider if they accept your insurance. There are in-network and out of network treatment providers. Its all about how much you can pay out of pocket. So, keep in mind that In-network cuts your out of pocket expenses on your side and out of network you must pay more.

The main thing is to ask for help?

Do you need alcohol or drug treatment? Is Treatment an Option for You?

Do you need alcohol or drug treatment? If you are struggling with alcohol or drugs and feel an intense desire to do something different with your life, then medical detoxification or treatment may be an option that can turn your life around and set you on a path to freedom.

Everyday people get to a place in their lives where the alcohol or drugs quit working for them. The substances that they relied on to help them cope with life around them begins to stop working chemically, and these individuals experience a situation where they must take more and more of the same substance to produce the desired effect. The problem is the body was never equipped to handle larger amounts of substances into the body. The higher dosages create a negative biological response to the increased amount of substances taken. The body compensates to handle the new higher amount of substances by creating a tolerance which brings about a higher amount of substances needed to produce the desired effect. Hence the addictive cycle is in full motion.

Understanding-the-Cycle-of-Addiction_01

Treatment for alcohol or drugs is the most logical choice for someone with a substance use disorder. However, to get help, one must ask for help for their disorder. Reaching out to an alcohol or drug treatment center is one option or contacting an addiction professional for help is another option. The main thing is once you recognize that a problem exists from substances in your life then the next step is to ask for help.

Here are some tips to help you find addiction treatment programs:

Tips for Finding Help

  1. If you have medical insurance contact your insurance carrier to find out if you are covered for substance use disorder treatment. If you do not have insurance, then you need to determine if you can privately pay for alcohol or drug treatment. If that is not an option, then you will need to reach out to your State Health Service department or related division in your state. They often have websites designed to help you find a treatment provider. Many states offer indigent treatment.
  2. Try and find a provider that is Licensed in the state and accredited by The Joint Commission or accredited by CARF.
  3. Pick a treatment provider that offers screenings and assessments and focus on evidence-based treatment approaches. Experienced treatment centers often operate from evidence-based approaches.

Remember Treatment is designed to help you become free from alcohol and drugs. However, you must make the first approach and ask for help.

How to pick a good addiction facility for a loved one?

Summer-Sky- black Banner

 

Addiction treatment programs are vast across the internet. When searching for a good addiction treatment program sometimes consumers can get overwhelmed. Sober Sky has great pointers to help you in picking out the best addiction treatment programs.

 

  • Pick a program that has an experienced staff treating your loved one. It is important to find out how long the staff has been treating addictions. The longer a program has been in business treating addictions is always a good start.
  • Will the program that you send your loved one be exposed to 12- step approaches? Pick a program that introduces and individual to the 12- step programs. More people get sober and stay sober because of the 12-steps. All other promises or modalities are simply not proven and you should be cautious of any other claims.
  • The staff is the most important aspect of any good treatment program. In other words the people that treat your loved one need to know what they are doing. Once again experience is the best indicator of a great addiction treatment program.
  • Medical detox and counselors on staff are very important. A program that does not have licensed staff needs to be scrutinized. Some programs do exist that do not have licensed staff, but they are usually recovery centers and will not be using counseling. I recommend facilities of this nature under the section recovery centers. They are a totally different type of program. They are not treatment programs. Please go to section on recovery centers for more information on this type of program.

 

This is a short pointer list but can help you in picking a great treatment program. If you need assistance in finding a great program feel free to e-mail me at texasscottkelley@aol.com I am always available to help you in finding a good program.

Interventions and Treatment!

Intervention- this is a very strategic approach to getting an individual to enter a treatment program. I think everyone needs to spend some time and analyze exactly what a treatment center is suppose to be offering an individual? I know it can be confusing trying to match a person to the right addiction program. One of the first things to consider is what exactly is addiction? addiction, drug or alcohol Repeated use of a psychoactive substance or substances, to the extent that the user (referred to as an addict) is periodically or chronically intoxicated, shows a compulsion to take the preferred substance (or substances), has great difficulty in voluntarily ceasing or modifying substance use, and exhibits determination to obtain psychoactive substances by almost any means. Typically, tolerance is prominent and a withdrawal syndrome frequently occurs when substance use is interrupted. The life of the addict may be dominated by substance use to the virtual exclusion of all other activities and responsibilities. The term addiction also conveys the sense that such substance use has a detrimental effect on society, as well as on the individual; when applied to the use of alcohol, it is equivalent to alcoholism. Addiction is a term of long-standing and variable usage. It is regarded by many as a discrete disease entity, a debilitating disorder rooted in the pharmacological effects of the drug, which is remorselessly progressive. From the 1920s to the 1960s attempts were made to differentiate between addiction ; and "habituation", a less severe form of psychological adaptation. In the 1960s the World Health Organization recommended that both terms be abandoned in favor of dependence, which can exist in various degrees of severity. Addiction is not a diagnostic term in ICD-10, but continues to be very widely employed by professionals and the general public alike. See also: dependence; dependence syndrome.

 

So get to know what addiction is before you choose a drug treatment program. I recommend many different addiction treatment programs. If you would like to know what programs I recommend you can call me and we can discuss treatment options or you can email me at texasscottkelley@aol.com


Questions to Ask Treatment Programs

Drug addiction has many different dangerous consequences. One thing that consumers want to think about when looking for a drug treatment program is can the facility handle you or your loved ones medical condition along with the addiction. When you look for a facility, one question to ask the treatment program, is do you have a medical component in your program? What are some of the types of medical staff that are present at the treatment program? Is the medical staff present 24 hours per day?

Not all drug treatment programs have a full time medical staff. This does not mean that if a program does not have a medical staff that the program is not a good program. It simply means that the level of care that they provide is different than a medical based treatment program. The medical based treatment program can provide treatment for a higher risk population than a non-medical residential treatment program.

Some IV drug users can have abscesses and ulcerations caused by soft tissue infections. Having access to a medical staff for this individual helps in the process of healing and treatment. Another important consideration to ask a drug or alcohol treatment program is do they have the ability to provide detoxification on site or do you need to seek detox at an alternative site before entering into the treatment program? Some addictive chemicals are dangerous to withdrawal from and medical attention is required to safely remove the chemicals from the body.
