When considering attending a addiction recovery program their are many common questions about addiction treatment that may come up. We strongly suggest you call us at 800-481-8457 and not go off of the Q&A listed below as your only source for information. We do our best to make our program accessible and affordable to everyone that needs help.

How do I know if me or someone I care about needs addiction treatment?

The answer is very simple, if you have found yourself here most likely you do. The best way to determine is by giving us a call to do a brief assessment to see if you would benefit from a treatment program. When you have trouble controlling or managing your drug use and/or life  and destructive behavior continues despite the harm that addiction is causing to your self-esteem, job, relationships and health—you need addiction treatment.

Does Insurance Cover Addiction Treatment?

Thanks to new legislation, insurance coverage has significantly changed to better cover addiction treatment services.  With the introduction of the new Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act, treatment for addiction must cover treatment.  In other words, insurance must cover addiction treatment services much like any other medical or surgical conditions. This enables many more people to utilize their insurance coverage and health benefits to cover the cost of addiction treatment services.

Ohio Addiction Recovery Center is able accept most health insurance plans and will work closely with your insurance company to secure insurance coverage for your treatment program. Our staff will manage and coordinate every aspect for you including: Determining your exact insurance coverage and eligibility, billing your insurance company and finding out is any out pocket expenses such as co-pays or deductibles will be needed (in most cases, insurance will cover 100% of the cost of addiction treatment)

How long is your program?

First we would like to say that the length of program is not the same for each person based on many factors. We can give you our guideline that we go by to help insure long term reocvery from addiction.

  1. Detox- 7-10 days depending on substance being used and amount being used.
  2. Inpatient treatment- 30-45 days
  3. Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)- 30-60 days. During this phase you will transition into a sober living and attend IOP 2-3 times a week.
  4. Outpatient Program (OP)- 60-90 days. Much like IOP you will be living in sober living and attending OP 2 times a week.
  5. Sober Living- 6 Months

The program is set up this way to slowly transition you back into a sober and drug-free life with giving you support throughout the process. This model ensures long-term recovery.

What if I do not have insurance or cannot afford your program?

We will do whatever we can to make addiction treatment available to you. Please call us to discuss your options.

Do I need Inpatient or Outpatient Treatment?

To determine whether you need inpatient or outpatient treatment services will come down to a few questions that only you can answer.

1)   Do you use or drink on a daily basis?

2)   When you stop using or drinking, do you go through withdrawal?

3)    Is your use prohibiting you from living a normal day-to-day life?

If you answered yes to any of those questions, you more than likely would need to go to an inpatient treatment program.

If no was your answer to those questions, then an outpatient program may be more suitable for your particular situation. In most cases making a call into our admissions office would be the best way to get the answers you’re looking for.

Most of the time an outpatient program is designed for someone who has completed an inpatient stay and is looking to continue their growth in recovery. Outpatient is not meant to be the starting point, it is commonly referred to as aftercare.
