How do I know if an IOP or PHP treatment facility is what my loved one needs?

Drug and alcohol addiction will cause changes to your loved one’s personality, decision making, behavior, and moods. Often, you’ll find that these changes begin to effect their financial health and relationships.

Signs that your loved one is in need of addiction therapy will include new behaviors that seem unhealthy or questionable. In any case, always trust your instincts. If something seems off, it may be an indication of a deeper problem.

How long does the program last?

Each patient is different and requires different levels and extent of care. Insurance coverage is also a factor. However, usually IOP or PHP treatment usually lasts between 14 and 30 days, with most people staying for a full month.

What are some benefits of traveling away from home for addiction treatment?

Traveling away from home for addiction treatment can be a major factor in the success of the program. Being away from bad influences, relationships, stresses, family pressures, and other outside factors can mean the differnce between success and failure of an addiction treatment program.

What’s more, being away from home allows patients to full focus on their recovery without the distractions of home-town life and worries. In any IOP or PHP treatment plan, clear focus is key to a patients recovery.

Can I bring spending money to treatment?

Yes, you may bring spending money to Recovery Coast. However, we insist on keeping your spending money in a safe in the office. All purchases during your stay with us must be approved by the Clinical Director or your Case Manager.
