Questions clients ask

Frequently Asked Questions

We understand that choosing an addiction treatment program can be a daunting task.  During the admissions process, you will have many questions about the program, the staff, what to expect in detox, and many more.  Here are some of the most frequently asked questions that could be helpful in making a decision:

How much does treatment cost?

The cost of addiction treatment can vary due to several factors. For instance, the type of treatment, location, length of stay, and amount of insurance coverage determine the overall cost. Other things such as co-pays, out-of-pocket expenses, and deductibles will affect the final cost. All things considered, the approximate cost of a 30-day program can range from $5,000 to $20,000.

What is inpatient drug rehab?

Inpatient drug rehab, also known as residential treatment, is a program where clients reside at the facility 24/7 while undergoing treatment. The purpose of inpatient drug rehab is to help a person focus on treatment without daily distractions and triggers that could hinder their progress. To ensure our client’s successful recovery, we provide a secure, supportive environment that promotes tranquility and healing. Our inpatient rehab can last from 30 days up to several months or more if needed. During treatment, clients receive a full continuum of care that incorporates evidence-based methods administered by compassionate, skilled staff.

What is outpatient drug rehab?

Outpatient drug rehab is a flexible treatment approach that allows clients to live at home while undergoing therapy. Individuals who don’t need or can’t commit to an inpatient program benefit from outpatient therapy. An outpatient rehab program is also ideal for people who have completed inpatient rehab or partial hospitalization programs but need continued support and guidance. Our outpatient programs provide a comprehensive range of therapies that facilitate healing. Typically, outpatient therapy requires attending meetings and counseling a few days each week for two or three hours each session.

How can I stage an intervention?

Staging an intervention for a friend or loved one may be the only way to get them to enter treatment. But, depending on the circumstances, a person’s response could be unpredictable. Before arranging any intervention, seek the advice or assistance of a professional interventionist. Their experience and training will ensure that the event achieves the desired result. The goal is to motivate the person to enter rehab right away so they won’t have time to change their mind.

How much will I have to pay for addiction treatment?

At Design for Change, we believe in providing all of the available information about insurance, private pay, and financial responsibilities up front, eliminating any confusion or misunderstanding about the cost of attending treatment with Design for Change. Our admissions team is available 24/7 to work with your insurance company and give you a quote for out-of-pocket costs (if any!). Each insurance company and policy is different, which is why our dedicated insurance team is available to help you find out what coverage you have for yourself or a loved one.

What does “clinical necessity” mean?

Medical necessity is a term that insurance companies use to determine a client’s eligibility for treatment. If treatment is clinically necessary, the insurance company will often provide the needed coverage to attend treatment. It is the job of our (intake/insurance/admissions) specialists to provide ample evidence of clinical necessity and advocate for our clients to help our clients receive the treatment that they need.

I don’t know my insurance ID number.

Our admission team is very diligent about locating policies with limited information. If you’re missing information, or even if you’re not sure if you have an active policy, we will gather alternative information from you to help locate your policy and provide the answers you need to help place you in treatment.

What type of therapy is offered?

Design for Change Recovery provides a full continuum of care that integrates various therapies for all kinds of substance use disorders.  After we verify your insurance, our treatment specialists will customize a program that aligns with your financial position.  The types of therapy typically covered by insurance include detox, outpatient programs, residential treatment, and partial hospitalization programs.  Our goal is to ensure that you get the best substance abuse treatment for your needs.  We will work closely with your insurance provider on your behalf to ensure the high-quality treatment you seek.

How long will my insurance cover treatment?

Insurance companies authorize coverage based upon an individual’s “clinical necessity,” determined by their physical and emotional condition, in conjunction with their treatment progress. Our Utilization Review Specialists will assess the client’s information regarding their past or current experiences with drugs and alcohol, emotional health, physical health, and current clinical, emotional, physical, material, familial, legal, and relational circumstances. All of this information will be used to coordinate care with your insurance company’s Care Management Advocate. Design for Change works closely with your insurance to provide you with the appropriate intensity and treatment duration using evidence-based practices.

What kind of insurance policies do we accept?

At Design for Change, we take most major insurance company policies. Design for Change takes both in and out of network policies, so whether you have a PPO or an HMO insurance provider, you will likely be covered. To find out if your insurance is accepted at Design for Change, call for a free consultation with our admission team.

Does insurance cover drug and alcohol detox?

Detox is a vital part of the treatment and recovery process, being the first stage of rehabilitation and the process through which our clients become physically stabilized. Our clients are often fearful that they must go through an extremely uncomfortable detox before entering residential treatment if they are to attend treatment. At Design for Change, we will be working as a team with your insurance company to acquire information about coverage for all levels of care, including detox, residential, partial hospitalization, and outpatient. We will gather all such information before admitting a client; in this way, we’re able to provide information about the recovery process from start to finish – from detox to outpatient – before a client steps through our doors. Detox is most likely a covered benefit – and we will work hard to find a detox facility that takes your insurance or even utilize a sub-acute protocol on-site at our facility if your insurance permits!

Will my insurance company cover my treatment.

Major insurance companies are well equipped to help clients seek resources for substance abuse treatment out of their local city or state. Our admissions specialists will be sure that during running your benefits and working with your insurance company to get you the help you need, they inquire about available facilities outside of your local area. Sometimes, it’s best to seek treatment outside of your local area, thus eliminating the temptation of leaving the treatment on a whim.

Can I use insurance for rehab?

Each insurance company and individual policy is different. However, Design for Change accepts plans from most major PPO and HMO insurance providers. First, our admission team will complete an initial assessment with you or your loved one over the phone, a process utilized to gather as much information as possible to advocate for you or your loved one to your insurance company. Second, we will call your insurance company to obtain your benefits as they relate to substance abuse. Our team will work closely with your insurance company to receive all of the necessary information needed to know if you will have any financial responsibility and exactly how much that would be. This information will allow our admission team to begin the process of customizing a treatment plan for you or your loved one that meets your financial position appropriately. At Design for Change, we believe in providing our clients with all of the facts, and working with each client to find a solution all parties can agree will be the most beneficial.

Do I have to tell my employer I’m attending rehab?

No! At Design for Change, your privacy is our priority. Federal law and HIPAA regulations have made it possible for individuals to seek treatment without concern of their private information being released to their employer, friends, family, or any agency without specified written consent signed by the client. Additionally, Employee Assistance programs (EAP) are widely available through most employers, offering an added layer of security to the process of attending treatment. EAP programs are designed to allow employees the ability to seek help without fear of losing your job, taking time off to attend treatment, or being treated differently because of the decision to attend treatment.

Does the Design for Change offer scholarship programs?

Design for Change does not offer in-house employment opportunities to clients to alleviate financial responsibility or out-of-pocket costs. Design for Change does offer scholarship programs to individuals who have insurance policies with partial coverage. Contact our admissions team at 855-997-1372 to determine if your insurance policy makes you eligible for one of our scholarships!

Can I use Medicaid and Medicare?

Unfortunately, Design for Change doesn’t have a contract with any State Funded Insurance. If you seek an alcohol and drug rehab that really works, please call us about rehab insurance coverage.

*General Information for Other Treatment Facilities* Medicaid and Medicare may cover part or all of the costs for detox and addiction treatment programs.  However, the rules for eligibility vary from state to state.  Also, the rules for eligibility change every year, so if you were turned down in the past, you may be eligible now.  In most states, Medicaid doesn’t require copayments for substance use treatment.  Some individuals have both Medicare and Medicaid and may combine benefits from both to cover the costs of rehab.
