The cloud of shame and fear that so often surrounds addiction can make it hard to see even a sliver of light on the horizon. But addiction treatment is where new life can bloom for you and your family. Here’s how to help your spouse, child, parent, or sibling find addiction treatment – so you can find peace.
Addiction is a serious disease that deserves professional treatment. You probably already know by now that all the worry and love in the world can’t do anything to fix it. Helping a loved one struggling with addiction to find addiction treatment gives them the best chance at healing their disease.
Like cancer or diabetes, addiction has a complex constellation of causes: from your genes to your lifestyle choices. Successfully treating it means identifying those causes and addressing them one by one. Addiction treatment under the care of professionals is the best way to do that.
What is Residential Addiction Treatment?
In residential addiction treatment, your loved one will be given a safe, supportive environment in which to focus on healing their addiction and its causes, 24/7. From Day 1, they’ll receive a personalized treatment plan meant to help address their unique needs, goals, and challenges. Clinicians will work with them to identify any co-occurring disorders, such as PTSD, depression, anxiety, or bipolar disorder. Through a combination of therapies, counseling, and medication when appropriate, your loved one will begin to heal – and you’ll notice the difference.
Family Program at Rehab in Kansas
Addiction is a family disease and each member of your family deserves care and healing. For that reason, we offer a family program with resources and support to the entire family when a loved one is in residential addiction treatment at Sunflower Recovery.
When appropriate and allowed, we’ll keep the family updated on the loved one’s progress. You can see it for yourself every Wednesday night at Family Night, a meal hosted by our private chef. Through it all, our entire team will be standing by to help support you and your family in any way that we can.
Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) and Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP) for Addiction
After residential addiction treatment, many people in early recovery opt to continue on to intensive outpatient programs (IOP) or partial hospitalization programs (PHP). These programs allow your loved one to return home to live with you, or to choose a recovery supportive community of their choice. For several hours a day, however, they meet with recovery peers and clinical team members to continue their healing and growth. Your loved one can continue to take advantage of group therapy, counseling, addiction education, and a support system to help them navigate life in early recovery. This continuum of care is vital for nurturing the seeds of recovery that are planted in residential addiction treatment.
Paying for Addiction Treatment
Once you’re ready to vet individual addiction treatment programs, you’ll likely want to get an idea of your costs up front. Every insurance plan is different and every addiction treatment center has different relationships with insurance providers. To know for certain what your insurance benefits will cover, call our admissions team to verify your benefits. They’ll work with your insurance company to figure out what you’d owe, so you can make a decision with confidence.
At the same time, they’ll answer any questions that you may have on how to help your loved one find addiction treatment. By landing on this blog post, you’ve already found one option. We’d love to be the place where new life blooms for you and your family.
