Our staff is always striving to ensure that you get the best possible care during your stay with us. This includes ensuring that you get to stay as long as you need and that you aren’t being pushed to fast forward your treatment if you’re not ready.
It is important to note, though, that different insurance companies are willing to pay for different levels of treatment depending on many factors. The amount of time you stay in residential treatment, or if you go straight to intensive outpatient from detox, will largely depend on your insurance company and what they feel that you need for an effective recovery.
The best-case scenario when it comes to your treatment is that you will go from detox to residential treatment, to a PHP, where you live off the grounds, but still undergo intensive six-hour days of treatment. In this case, the housing once you enter the PHP stage, is provided by us, at a cost to the client of $50/week. Insurance does not cover this cost, but the advantage is that you’re still engaged in a treatment program with the same team of specialists that you’ve gotten to know, and learning to navigate life outside of rehab.
If, however, you went from detox to an IOP program, once you complete it, it will be time to begin planning for your future and returning home.
What is the Difference Between Residential and Intensive Outpatient Treatment?
Many times, our clients will go from Detox to Residential treatment. For those with severe addictions, this can be an ideal way to remove oneself from triggers and potential temptation because the only time that they will be leaving the facility for the next 30 days or so is with a member of our staff.
This is meant to provide a sense of safety and security while working on building the skills and learning the tools that can be essential in overcoming addictions.
PHP and IOP, on the other hand, offer more flexibility for those who are becoming more secure in their recovery journey. There is still a lot of therapy, both individual and group, being done, and the days are full of learning skills and tools, but those in IOP programs do not live on the grounds, although they do live in housing that we provide, and after 20 days in treatment, can leave Willow Springs Recovery property unattended after their day in treatment ends, as long as they return before curfew. After 30 days in treatment, clients can have their own vehicle.
Keep in mind that these privileges are earned by adhering to all program rules and participating in all required therapies.
