How do I know if it’s time for rehab?

Making the decision to seek professional help with your substance abuse issues can be tough. If you’re wondering whether the time is right, then take a look at how the problem has been impacting your life.

Are you sacrificing your relationships? Draining money? Struggling to keep up with the demands of your career? If so, the chances are good that the time has come to take action. The worse your problem becomes, the more difficult your recovery process will be.

So be proactive about your health. Get in touch with Better Days and we’ll get you set up with a personalized treatment plan as soon as possible.

What should I expect?

The nature of your recovery plan will vary based on which of our options you select. For example, you’ll need to start your healing with detox, which will require you to spend 3-7 days at our facility. During this time, you’ll go through the worst of your cravings and withdrawals, but we’ll watch over you to manage them and make you as comfortable as possible.

After that, you can choose between our MAT, IOP, PHP, and outpatient programs. Each will require you to spend some time at our facility each week. While you’re with us, you’ll receive targeted care from therapists, physicians, and other addiction specialists who will help you heal.

You’ll also get to participate in our group activities. These take place near our location in Southern California as well as in the surrounding areas. They give you the chance to have some fun and to connect with the other patients who are in your program.

Are treatment programs actually effective?

Professional substance abuse treatments are highly effective. Loads of research and scientific data confirms this. But studies also demonstrate that the ultimate effectiveness of any treatment for substance abuse is based, in large part, on how much the patient puts into it.

This means that you’ll need to be fully invested in whichever recovery program that you select in order to receive the maximum benefits from it. But don’t worry. We’ll guide you through the entire process. Just show up and we’ll tell you what you need to do in order to continuously make daily progress towards your long-term health and wellness goals.

How do I know which plan is right for me?

You need to understand two things in order to answer this question. First, you need to familiarize yourself with the various treatments that are available to you. Take some time to learn about PHPs, IOPs, and other plans. Pay special attention to what sets each of the plans that you’re considering apart from one another.

Secondly, you also need to understand yourself and what you hope to get out of substance abuse treatment. Do you want a highly-structured plan that takes place entirely in a treatment center? Or do you prefer a form of outpatient care that allows you to sleep in your own bed at night?

Answering these questions will help you get a sense of which program will be best for you. But you don’t have to make the decision on your own. You can give us a call, tell us what you’re thinking, and we’ll provide you with a recommendation on what we think would work best based on our professional knowledge of the recovery process.

What happens if I relapse?

Relapse is a natural part of the recovery process for some people. If you do it, that’s okay. The most important thing is not to panic. Instead, you’ll want to get yourself back into a recovery program as soon as possible. Doing so will help you to maintain as much of the progress that you’ve already made as possible.

Will I be able to keep working while I receive treatment for substance abuse?

You’ll probably need to take a break from work, at least in the early days of your treatment program. Whether you choose inpatient care or an intensive outpatient program, you’ll need to devote most of the daytime towards healing — especially when you’re just getting started.

However, as you make progress, you’ll have more and more free time available to you during the day. Eventually, you’ll be able to resume working while still receiving the support that you need to recover fully. The exact timeline for this will vary based on the treatment plan that you select and the progress that you make.

Will you accept my insurance? Or will I have to pay out-of-pocket?

Better Days accepts many different types of insurance. But the amount that you have to pay will be determined by the substance abuse coverage that your plan provides. You may have very minimal out-of-pocket costs or substantial ones.

The only way to know for sure is to contact us directly and provide us with your insurance information. When you do, we’ll talk with your provider to determine the scope of your coverage as it relates to our services. We’ll fight for you to ensure that you get the maximum benefits that are available.

Can I come in for treatment with a friend, significant other, or pet?

Absolutely! We offer couples treatment options so that you can heal alongside your significant other. We’re also happy to accommodate the needs of close friends — furry or human. Get in touch with us and we’ll develop a targeted treatment plan for you that allows you to recover alongside the people or pet that you care most about.

What happens when I call Better Days?

When you reach out to Better Days the first time, we’ll begin by asking you a few simple questions. We’ll want to know who you are, what you’re struggling with, and what type of treatment you think would be best.

This is the beginning of the admissions process. Once we have that information, we’ll verify your insurance and set up a phone assessment with you. During this process, you’ll get to speak with an addiction specialist who can help you decide on the treatment plan that you’re going to pursue.

Once that’s complete, you’ll be able to begin detoxing at our facility as soon as you’re able to get started. When you’ve finished that process, we’ll immediately transfer your care into the plan that you’ve chosen.

If you think that substance abuse treatment is right for you, it’s important that you don’t delay. Reach out to us today at (844) 991-3135 to take the first step towards Better Days.
