When you contact us, you’ll be connected to a caring intake coordinator who will ask you a number of questions about your substance use and personal situation. Your conversation will remain completely confidential unless you are at risk of harming yourself or others. It’s important to be upfront and honest with your coordinator, as your responses help them figure out the next steps you should take.
Your intake coordinator will conduct a quick pre-assessment to help determine your eligibility for treatment. Topics they may ask about include your:

Although many are concerned about the cost of rehab treatment, the price of continuing an addiction is much, much greater. Substance abuse is not only financially costly, but also detrimental to your health, relationships and overall well-being. Attending treatment means investing in a healthier future for yourself and those you love.
Addiction treatment services are often completely or at least partially covered under most health insurance policies. The Recovery Village Atlanta accepts most major insurance plans (excluding Medicaid and Medicare), and we will work with you to verify what your insurance may cover. If our services are not covered, we can help with private pay options or locate other facilities that may accept your policy.
Choosing the right treatment program depends on many factors, such as the substance you use, the severity of your addiction, co-occurring mental health disorders, medical conditions and more. Your treatment plan may vary based on your treatment progress and how stable you are in your recovery.
Many clients begin with a medical detox program that helps increase the safety and comfort of withdrawal. Afterward, they’ll live on-site at our inpatient facility to receive structured treatment and around-the-clock support. Following inpatient treatment, clients may begin outpatient treatment and aftercare. These programs help people transition back into their day-to-day lives while still having access to clinical support.
Once you’ve gone through the pre-assessment and insurance verification process with your coordinator, you’ll set an admission date. Your coordinator will help you determine the best time and date for you to arrive, and they can also assist you in making travel arrangements. If you’re looking to be admitted quickly, we can sometimes get clients into treatment within 24 hours after they’ve contacted us.
Drug and alcohol addiction can be very difficult to recover from on your own. Professional rehab treatment centers help address the underlying concerns that lead to substance abuse and teach clients how to live life without turning to drugs or alcohol. These approaches help reduce the risk of relapse and create the foundation needed for lifelong addiction recovery.
There are a number of laws that allow people to attend rehab without fear of losing their jobs. These include the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). However, there are some exceptions that can make you eligible for termination. For example, you can lose your job if you are actively using drugs or alcohol while at work. Employers can also establish drug-free workplace policies that allow employees to be fired for substance use.
After an initial 72-hour period, you will be able to speak with friends and family members at designated times throughout the week. In addition, loved ones can visit you during family weekends or through family therapy. Keep in mind that contact with family or friends may be discouraged if it disrupts your recovery progress.
The costs of rehab can vary widely depending on the type of facility, treatment program and length of stay. Outpatient programs typically cost less than inpatient programs, while publicly-funded rehab centers typically cost less than private facilities.
Health insurance providers typically cover some or all of the costs of rehab treatment. Coverage can vary from one policy to another, so it’s important to verify your coverage with your provider or a rehab facility. When someone does not have insurance, admissions staff can typically work with them to create an affordable payment plan.
The length of addiction treatment varies based on several factors, such as the program you choose and the severity of your addiction. Detox typically takes anywhere from three to 10 days, inpatient programs can take 30 days or more and outpatient programs often last for three months. Post-rehab aftercare services last indefinitely to help support lifelong recovery.
After completing rehab treatment at our facility, clients begin an individualized aftercare program that helps promote long-term recovery. This program can include follow-up appointments, counseling sessions, peer support group meetings, medication-assisted treatment, relapse prevention plans and more.
