Rehab FAQs

men talking about rehab faqsCan I stay on my prescription medication medicines? 

Yes and no. Our team will assess your health, and together we will determine the continued medication plan. It is our goal to provide you with the best possible treatment outcome, which includes managing your medications while you are with us.

Will anyone know I am receiving addiction treatment at Mission Recovery?

Privacy laws prohibit any representative of our company from disclosing client information without your informed consent. Your confidentiality is of utmost importance, and we take your privacy seriously.

How many days will I be in detox?

Several factors influence the length of stay at a drug and alcohol detox program:

  • Abused substances have different withdrawal time frames and symptoms. Detox medications and protocols vary, as well.
  • The method of administration (e.g., smoking or injecting the drug)
  • Amount and frequency of the drug regularly used or alcohol consumed
  • Amount of time you have been actively drinking or using drugs
  • Age, genetics, and physical health play an important part in determining your detox treatment plan.

Do you take insurance?

Yes, we are currently in-network with Cigna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Multiplan, and Ambetter. We also can work with most other major insurance providers on an out-of-network basis, through single case agreements. To find out if we can work with your insurance plan or not, contact us today!

What if I have a custody hearing or court-appointed court appearance date?

While you are in our care, it is our job to act as your advocate. With your signed release of information, we can contact your attorney or the presiding authority to postpone your court date. If this is not possible, we will make arrangements for you to appear.

What substances require medically supervised detoxification?

  • Alcohol
  • Hypnotic/sedative drugs (barbiturates and benzodiazepines)
  • Opioids (heroin, morphine, and prescription pain medication)

How many people will be in my group?

Our client to staff ratio is no higher than 8:1; which means that your primary therapist will not have a caseload of more than eight clients at a time. This allows for a more personalized approach to our client-centered program. 

How can I stay in touch with my children?

Our clients are allowed access to their cell phones for a limited time each day to contact their loved ones and feel connected.

Is detox always necessary?

Some clients arrive for treatment without the need for detox. However, it is our policy to observe arriving clients for 24 hours or until medically cleared by our physician.

How long will treatment take?

Our average length of stay is 30 days. However, some of those days may be spent in our detox program. We offer program extensions, if needed, allowing our clients to stay up to 45 days. Fort has a full continuum of care, meaning that after residential treatment, you may enroll in our PHP or IOP program to strengthen your recovery. Some of our clients wish to participate in PHP and IOP programs closer to home. We are happy to assist in making those arrangements.

Am I allowed visitors?

Yes! We allow visitors at designated times during the week, upon clinical approval.

Can I detox on my own before coming to treatment?

Detoxing on your own is difficult and most often fails. This is not your fault. How many times have you promised yourself, “this is the last time” or “tomorrow I will quit?” Not only is detoxing on your own self-defeating, but it also presents serious health risks. The process of withdrawal can include the following symptoms:

  • Dehydration, vomiting, and diarrhea
  • Delirium tremens, sweating, and tremors
  • Anxiety, panic attacks, hallucinations, paranoia, and insomnia
  • Muscle pains and body aches
  • Seizures and even death

Because detox comes with many risks and can be life-threatening, we highly recommend seeking medical guidance if you decide to detox on your own.
