Why It’s Nearly Impossible to Overcome Your Addiction without a Drug Addiction Treatment Program

Group therapy in a drug addiction treatment programPerhaps you or your loved one has already made the decision to stop using. While it’s a noble decision, that’s just the first step. Moreover, many individuals believe they can rely on sheer willpower to overcome their drug addiction. In turn, they don’t feel the need to seek professional addiction treatment.

In our country, nearly 23 million people fit the criteria for substance abuse disorder. Of those people, just over 10% actually seek professional help. That means 90% continue to live a chaotic life with an untreated disease.

How the ACA Impacts Drug Addiction Treatment Program Availability

Make no mistake—addiction is definitely a disease. Moreover, illicit substances like heroin, meth, and cocaine alter brain chemistry, which leads to negative long-term physical side effects and dangerous drug-seeking behavior. Because medical experts consider addiction to be a pre-existing mental health disorder, the Affordable Care Act mandates that insurance companies have to cover at least a portion of your substance abuse treatment programs. At a minimum, it makes paying for rehab easier.

CVRC will work with your insurance company to ensure that you get the most coverage possible toward our recovery programs. Additionally, depending upon your policy, you may be eligible to receive treatment with little to no out-of-pocket costs.

The Importance of Our Continual Care Model

At CVRC, we take a comprehensive, individualized approach to drug addiction recovery. But, keep in mind that recovery doesn’t happen overnight. Just like it took continued abuse for addiction to develop, it’s going to take a complete rehab experience to undo months—or in many cases, years—of substance abuse.

Individuals begin their recovery experience at our initial rehab treatment level. Over the course of 35–45 days, we blend extensive clinical care with a non-secluded reality-based therapy approach to prepare individuals for post-treatment life. Upon finishing the first level of care, clients graduate into our intensive outpatient program for 4–6 weeks as they begin transitioning back into their everyday lives. This duration gives individuals ample time to regain their independence while maintaining the healthy, sober living habits they acquired during treatment.

Addictions We Treat

At CVRC, our drug addiction treatment programs help individuals overcome various types of addiction, including:
