FAQS

Our facility was created on the belief that treatment is individualized concentrating on a whole life recovery plan which introduces each patient to a new way of living.

What should I expect while in Treatment?

After a thorough evaluation and assessment, our highly trained addiction specialists will formulate a comprehensive treatment plan tailored to each client’s specific needs within our residential drug and alcohol rehab program and intensive outpatient rehab program.

What is Inpatient Treatment?

Inpatient treatment, also known as residential treatment, takes place in a structured, supervised environment, such as a hospital, mental health facility, or dedicated rehab center. Inpatients receive intensive substance abuse treatment services — and psychiatric care, if appropriate — while living full-time at the facility. Inpatients receive 24-hour monitoring by doctors, nurses, or therapists in the security of a drug-free atmosphere.

Inpatient care is often recommended for patients who have a history of heavy drug use, for those who have serious co-occurring health concerns, or for those who have relapsed after previous experiences with treatment.

How long does Drug and Alcohol Addiction Treatment last?

The duration of drug and alcohol rehab depends, to a large degree, on the extent and magnitude of a person’s substance abuse problem—as well as their overall dedication to recovery. Our Residential Drug and Alcohol Rehab program is a minimum of 30 days while our Intensive Outpatient rehab program is typically 3-4 nights per week for four to six weeks before stepping down to 1 night per week.

Does My Insurance Cover Drug & Alcohol Rehab Treatment?

Thanks to recent legislation, the entire realm of insurance and insurance coverage has been significantly changed for the better. Under the new Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act, treatment for substance abuse must receive parity in treatment. In other words, there can be no difference in coverage for substance abuse treatment than for any medical or surgical conditions. This enables many more people to leverage their insurance coverage and benefits to help break free from the grip of drug and alcohol addiction and transform the dream of addiction free living into reality. Imperium Wellness is proud to accept most health insurance plans and will work diligently with your insurance company to secure the maximum amount of insurance coverage possible for your drug and alcohol rehab treatment. Our caring and compassionate Recovery Counselors will manage and coordinate every detail for you including: Determining your precise insurance coverage and eligibility, billing your insurance company and calculating any out of pocket expenses such as co-pays or deductibles (though in many cases, insurance will cover 100% of the cost of drug and alcohol rehab treatment).
