Who should come to the initial meeting?
That can vary on the circumstances and the family, but our preference is to see as many members of the family as possible. The more people who are concerned and show up, the better data we can get.
Does the person we’re concerned about need to be at the initial meeting?
It depends on the situation. Sometimes including the person the family is concerned about is the best way to start treatment, and sometimes it’s best to meet with the family first. The mind state of the individual suffering from drug or alcohol abuse is the key factor. If they are willing and have chosen recovery, then we can accommodate that. FRre does not take a cookie cutter approach.
How soon can I get in for an initial consultation?
We can often do an initial consultation the same day you call or visit our office. Contact us today to set up an appointment.
Can you help people out of state?
Yes, in most cases we can. We’ll send a clinician to do intensive family work onsite. We also use technology such as Skype, Facetime, etc.
What insurance do you take?
Unfortunately we do not take insurance. Family therapy, interventions, and some treatments for drug and alcohol abuse are not covered by insurance companies.
Your website says the initial consultation is without financial obligation. What does that mean?
The initial consultation is done at no charge. During this consultation our team will get a preliminary understanding of what your family is going through and present you with a broad plan on how we can help. Once we are retained, we are able to work with you to get deeper insights and collaborate on the best approach to help move your family towards recovery.
What are your credentials and qualifications regarding drug and alcohol abuse and family therapy?
Our therapists are licensed associate marriage and family therapists and licensed alcohol and drug counselors.
Do you have financial relationships with any treatment providers?
We have no connection to any specific treatment providers, financially or otherwise. We develop our relationships and strategic partnerships with providers we trust to deliver excellence and we make referrals based exclusively on client need.
Will my loved one need detox?
Possibly. It depends on the level of use and the chemical being used. Some detoxes are uncomfortable but not life threatening. Alcohol withdrawal can be dangerous and life threatening and needs to be medically supervised.
How much does treatment cost?
Several factors play into the cost of family therapy and treatment for drug and alcohol abuse. We will help you draw up a plan of action to coordinate resources to help pay for treatment and intervention based upon issues such and in and out of network providers, insurance coverage, and the specific case of your family and loved one. Get in touch with us today to set up an initial consultation.
How long is treatment?
Treatment for drug and alcohol abuse is different for each situation. Our initial consultation will help determine the specific circumstances of each case, and can help determine specific solutions and methods for treatment. A timeframe is often very difficult to determine.
What’s the difference between outpatient and inpatient treatment?
Outpatient services are treatment sessions during the day, or during evenings where an individual lives at home, or in a sober house. It’s designed so people can access treatment while they work, go to school or care for their family. Individuals can come to the treatment center, receive care, and then go back home. Inpatient treatment is often mistaken as, or confused with residential treatment. Residential treatment requires individuals to stay overnight at the facility. Inpatient treatment normally refers to a hospital or a locked facility.
How do you know if someone needs residential treatment?
We take into account a variety of criteria. There are health, safety and relationship issues that are indicators, as well as career and legal issues that would tend to indicate if there’s a problem. We also look at an individual’s progress along the road to recovery, insurance issues, length of stay and method of care to interpret the right treatment.
Do the treatment centers take insurance?
Many treatment centers accept insurance, some do not. We can help determine the specific payment options for your case during our initial consultation.
