Our staff at Boardwalk Recovery Center have seen and heard a lot of things throughout our years. We understand exactly what each patient is curious, concerned or confused about. The following are the most frequently asked questions about receiving treatment.
What treatment facilities are available?
For now, Boardwalk Recovery Center has one facility which is located in sunny Pacific Beach, California. We believe that the comfortable weather and variety of activities that California has to offer helps increase the chance of a successful recovery.
How do I get admitted?
Your admissions process will begin with a quick phone call to our facility. Our pre-admissions counselors will ask you a few questions about your health, including health history, family history and the nature of your addiction. We will also evaluate your insurance to make sure you are covered; if not, we will help you locate a nonprofit or charitable organization that may help fund your treatment. During the pre-admissions process, you will learn about our rules and regulations as well as what to expect during treatment. Depending on your willingness to commit, Boardwalk Recovery Center could admit you the same day.
How much money should I bring?
We recommend bringing a debit or credit card just in case of emergencies or if you would like something that we do not provide. We also offer an option to open an account with our facility in which loved ones can deposit money.
How long does treatment take?
The length of your treatment will depend on the severity of your addiction, as well as how you are responding to the treatments. Most people stay the minimum of 30 days; however, some stay 60 days, 90 days, or even longer. With a severe addiction, you have to consider the amount of time it takes to recover as well as how effective the therapies are for your addiction. It takes a lot of hard work and endurance to recover from an addiction or mental health disorder. You should prepare yourself for a long stay just in case.
What should I expect?
With Boardwalk Recovery Center, you should expect quality care and effective programs. All of our programs begin with an assessment of your mental health, which helps our staff determine which program will be right for you. Once we have determined your individual addiction challenges, we begin comprehensive, personalized treatment, followed by a cleansing of your mind with a combination of our therapeutic modalities. We understand that this sounds overwhelming, but we assure that with our hard work and dedication, we can help you achieve a successful recovery.
How bad are withdrawal symptoms?
Unfortunately, there is no way to sugarcoat this; depending on the severity of your addiction, you will most definitely experience symptoms of withdrawal. The symptoms of withdrawal include:
- Muscle fatigue
- Loss of appetite
Is therapy necessary after the detox process?
Therapy is the most essential element of your treatment. The detox process only cleanses your body, not your mind. Our therapies are designed to retrain your brain in order for you to live free of addiction and mental health disorders. With therapy, you will be able to recognize your maladaptive behaviors and replace them with positive coping mechanisms. Put in simpler terms, therapy is absolutely necessary in order to achieve recovery and maintain your sobriety.
What happens after treatment?
Once you have successfully completed a rehab treatment program, we will help you plan for your aftercare or sobriety maintenance. Aftercare is an essential part of treatment because it will help keep you motivated to continue your sobriety outside of our facility. We will make a list of goals for you to accomplish in order to keep you distracted by positive influences. We will also direct you toward the nearest support groups that will offer you guidance and support beyond our facility. We will not let you leave feeling unprepared; we help you plan for your aftercare.
