disorders can lead to relapse. Treating all co-occurring disorders ensures a better recovery outcome from a substance use disorder. Beachway

What is Addiction
and How Does it Begin?
Drug addiction, sometimes referred to as substance use disorder, is defined by the Mayo Clinic as a disease that impacts an individual’s brain and behaviors and eventually causes a loss of control over drug, alcohol, or medication use. Addiction can start simply with experimental use or borrowing a prescription drug from a friend, for example. The risk of a full-blown addiction depends on the substance, as some drugs (including opioids and cocaine) are more addictive than others.
As a person continues to use drugs, they need more of the same substance to get the same high, and it becomes increasingly difficult to function without a fix. Without the drug, the user feels symptoms of withdrawal. This vicious cycle sets the stage for long-term substance abuse and dependence that can potentially destroy the drug user’s life and the ones with whom they are close.
What is Residential Treatment?
Residential treatment is a specific level of care that allows patients to focus solely on recovery. Because inpatient treatment is residential, patients are removed from the temptations and stressful events they would normally experience in their everyday lives.
A comprehensive, all-inclusive drug treatment program provides a safe, supportive environment with evidence-based therapies, typically lasting between 30 and 90 days. Inpatient treatment also provides the medical and psychiatric care necessary to address other factors that can accompany drug addiction:
- Co-occurring mental health disorders
- Physical health needs
- Struggling family members
- Case management
- Long-term aftercare planning
Because of the supportive environment and separation from relapse triggers and temptation, Inpatient drug treatment centers are generally the most effective treatment for substance abuse and drug addiction, but they do require full commitment. Entering an inpatient drug rehab facility means time away from family, work, school, and friends. Patients accustomed to being in control of their environments may have difficulties adjusting to a set schedule where activities and environments are controlled and restricted. However, having the experience and wisdom of medical experts and professionals in this crucial time is very helpful and can lead to lifelong recovery.
At Beachway, we include all the following as part of our inpatient treatment program:
- Food and housing
- All amenities
- Intensive individual, group, and family therapy
- Medical supervision
- Holistic treatments
What Is Aftercare Drug
Leaving an inpatient rehabilitation center presents all sorts of challenges for patients. After returning to their independent lives, it can be beneficial for patients to retain the support of their rehab specialists. Long-term recovery depends on ongoing aftercare treatment programs. Once a patient has finished their initial detoxification or hospitalization program, a medical professional from the addiction recovery center will work with them to come up with the next steps.
At Beachway Therapy Center, aftercare treatment usually includes an intensive outpatient treatment program or an outpatient treatment program with individual, group, and/or family therapy sessions.
How to Pay for
Drug Rehab Center Costs
Most health insurance plans cover drug rehab treatment. Patients may qualify for short-term disability coverage if they have a private health insurance policy or a policy obtained through an employer. Family medical leave (FMLA) may also be an option for patients as it secures employment until treatment is over and even offers financing options.
Inpatient treatment is a financial commitment and is typically more costly than outpatient drug addiction rehabilitation. Insurance may cover much of the cost, but patients may still encounter additional expenses and loss of income during treatment.
It’s important that patients carefully consider the financial implications and make informed, responsible decisions. Health is not something to gamble with, so although treatment can be expensive, it should be viewed as a critical investment in a drug- and alcohol-free future.
How to Find the Right Treatment Facility?
With addiction being so widespread, substance users have no shortage of drug rehab facilities from which to choose. What makes one program better than another? How can patients be sure they are choosing the ideal rehab center? Finding a reputable drug addiction rehabilitation center is crucial to long-term recovery. Those struggling with addiction deserve the best drug rehab programs possible to ensure a full recovery. Ask these questions to identify the best treatment center:
Is the facility accredited by the Joint Commission?
Does the drug treatment program have any other accreditations or certifications? How long have they been in business?
A new facility may sound great on paper, but it must be experienced and established in the field. See that the facility has licensed, credentialed therapists and expert medical professionals on staff.
Are programs specific to each patient’s needs?
Each patient has unique needs, so therapists must personalize every treatment plan.
What is the environment like?
Treatment should take place in home-like environments as opposed to institutional settings. They should also offer great amenities that make their center a prime option for treatment.
What are the payment options?
Make sure the treatment center accepts your health insurance plan and identify any financial requirements or out-of-pocket expenses. Some drug rehab centers offer “sober living” or transitional housing, but patients will have to pay separately for that, and insurance will not cover it. Beware of programs that tell you they will pay for your housing if you sign up for their intensive outpatient treatment program insurance. This may be an illegal offer by a less-than-reputable drug rehab facility that won’t help with recovery and could make matters worse.
