What can I expect from the admissions process?
To begin, you will speak with an addiction specialist on the phone. At this time they will make a brief clinical assessment of your situation. Together you will decide which individualized treatment programs will be best for you or your loved one.
Next, they will collect your insurance and financial information. Usually, treatment can be covered by most PPO insurance. A determination will also be made about any financial assistance or other applicable pay options.
Your addiction specialist can also help you with travel arrangements, airport pick-ups, etc. Our treatment advisor will remain in contact with you throughout the process to make sure things run smoothly and trouble-free. A call to us today could have treatment beginning within 24 hours.
What are the benefits of traveling away from home for treatment?
How long is treatment?
BLVD offers 30, 60, and 90 day treatment programs or longer as needed. Studies have shown that the longer the rehab period, the less of a chance of relapse. We can also provide housing, including residences for transitional and extended care.
What would I not get from BLVD that I would get from a more expensive program?
Spending more on treatment does not guarantee a better result. Whether it’s a room with an ocean view, an on-call masseuse, or therapies with exotic animals, expensive amenities make no difference when it comes to creating a successful recovery. In fact, it can often draw the focus away from the clinical aspects.
At BLVD our individualized and integrative approach to treatment combines traditional time-tested practices with innovative, evidence-based methods. Our empathetic staff, some of whom are in recovery themselves, are passionate and knowledgeable about the work they’ve chosen to do. They are the reason our clients get healthy; not the thread count of the linens.
What does BLVD have to offer that other treatment centers don’t?
When is detoxification necessary?
Do you shake when you don’t drink? Then you will need detox.
Other symptoms can range from sweating, nausea and vomiting, to anxiety, insomnia, tremors, hallucinations, and even convulsions. Depending on the severity of the chemical addiction, left unsupervised the act of withdrawing can be dangerous. When the body has been using a substance for a period of time, it can develop a physical and mental dependence. In these cases a detoxification managed by a physician and a team of health professionals on hand can minimize the attendant dangers of chemical withdrawal. Medications can also be given to help relieve much of the discomfort.
Can the family be involved?
Addiction can destroy families and individuals alike. But the truth is that many in recovery will say that their loved one’s actions are the cause of many triggers. These triggers can lead to relapse. When the family can be involved is a decision to be made by the therapist and case manager. Family work could begin immediately or it could be necessary to wait until certain work is accomplished by the client. We would encourage supportive families to learn as much as possible about the treatment their loved one is receiving.
Why chose an IOP (Intensive Outpatient) versus a residential in-patient program?
Traditionally, inpatient residential treatment has represented the most comprehensive form of treatment available. For the residential client, it provided everything including meals, lodging, and activities. But now, a leading edge IOP program like BLVD’s can offer all of the same features as a residential program at a fraction of the cost. Clients can take up residence in one of our sober living facilities. These facilities offer structure and invaluable community.
What is the cost of treatment?
Cost of treatment will vary depending on the program options you choose, the length of stay, and whether detox will be required. During the intake process our addiction specialists will help you design a treatment plan that is best for you or your loved one. If the cost of treatment is a concern for you keep in mind the costs of addiction. As many will attest, recovery could be the best investment you will ever make.
