Questions patients ask

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)

What characteristics should I look for in a good Outpatient Rehab Center?

Before choosing a rehab center there are some points of consideration to take into account.  To start, not all centers provide the same level of care and treatment.  It’s vitally important to the health of your recovery that you commit yourself to a center that takes a patient-centric approach while incorporating evidence-based therapies and treatment protocols.

At Rehab South Florida, top-level care and treatment services aimed to address and resolve the underlying causes of client addictions has enabled our patients to achieve improved recovery outcomes.  One RSF characteristic that patients enjoy is the help of our incredibly compassionate, experienced, and result-driven staff members that are motivated by client recovery.

What types of addictions do you treat?

Rehab South Florida specializes in the treatment of drug- and alcohol-based addictions.  Through a comprehensive recovery approach that often includes a dual-diagnosis assessment to determine if more than one addiction is present (in order to more effectively treat the addiction), our highly trained staff has decades of combined treatment experience for prescription painkillers, opioid, and alcohol-challenged dependencies.

Allow our treatment staff to help you through the challenges of addiction in a monitored and nearly symptom-free approach in our outpatient rehab program – an excellent option for recovery where you can maintain your normal day-to-day employment/life responsibilities.

How long does addiction treatment/rehabilitation take?

This varies from client to client and is dependent on the classes of drugs used, the combination of substances taken/abused, and the length in which abuse has taken place.  Prior medical history and a physical wellness exam will also influence the duration of one’s treatment.

Rehab South Florida offers both inpatient and outpatient programs.  For more severe addiction cases, clients are recommended to our inpatient program where they’ll be presented with 30, 60, and 90-day treatment options.

An admission specialist will discuss our available programs with you in-depth and will work with you closely to build an understanding of your recovery needs and goals.  This information we collect allows our clinicians and treatment-administering doctors to design personalized recovery plans during which your duration of stay will be determined.

Overall, how much does addiction treatment cost?

The cost of treatment is dictated by an array of variables ranging from the type of treatment program(s) you attend to the duration of your treatments.  Fortunately, Rehab South Florida is missioned to make recovery more accessible to those in needs and has an extensive listed of accepted policy coverage providers.

Patients are able to access the care they need using plans from coverage providers that include Cigna, Aetna, TUFTS Health Plan, AmeriHealth, Vital Source, United Healthcare, BlueCross BlueShield and CareFirst.

Do You Allow Visitations?

Rehab South Florida believes in the power of family involvement; it’s a crucial component to one’s recovery to be surrounded by those that love and care about them the most.  This is why Rehab South Florida coordinates family-meeting times where on-site visitation between approved members and the client take place in a relaxed, solace, home-styled environment.

This allows patients to receive understanding and compassion; a much-helpful tool for coping with the transition to sobriety.

What happens In the event of a Relapse?

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the relapse rates among those in rehab fall between 40%-60%.  Regardless of how diligently you pursue recovery or how highly your commitment is to lifelong sobriety, there’s a small yet present chance that you relapse; at some point.

Upon a relapse, it’s easy for that individual to become depressed.  Often, feelings of shame and regret take over and they begin to believe they’re not strong-willed enough to overcome addiction. 

If you’ve relapsed, you may give up hope and no longer fight to give up addiction as you once did.

Rather, use this relapse a stepping stone, use it as a learning tool; identify and study your triggers and clarify your recovery plan.  By better understanding your triggers you’ll be more apt to avoid situations that encourage use of the desired substance(s) which in turn promotes abstinence.

At Rehab South Florida, outpatient rehab patients will have access to specialists to receive support and counsel from in the event a relapse takes place.
