Asking for help with addiction isn’t easy - and seeking help for a drug or alcohol addiction doesn’t have to be complicated.

We have broken down the rehab admissions process in four simple steps below.

1. Contact A Treatment Provider

When you or a loved one need help for a drug or alcohol problem, the first step is to reach out for help and contact a treatment provider or addiction rehab center.

Treatment providers will discuss the types of treatments available, and answer any of your questions honestly and confidentially. Curious what types of questions to ask? Here is a list to get you started: Questions To Ask Any Drug & Alcohol Rehab Center.

2. Confidential Evaluation / Assessment

The second step to alcohol or drug rehab is to schedule an appointment for an evaluation and assessment.


Because a comprehensive assessment is crucial to appropriately place a patient in the most effective level of care. It is a combination of medical history, physical exam, and substance testing. Assessments are completed in our facility and are strictly confidential.

When an individual decides they are ready for help, the thought of sharing personal and private information with a stranger can be intimidating. This can be a difficult time, and sometimes scary. At Care Addiction Center, we do our best to make it as comfortable and supportive as possible. Learn more about what to expect during an assessment.

3. Verify Insurance

If you have an insurance policy, your treatment is most likely covered. We recognize that addiction insurance coverage and benefits can be complex. Find out if your insurance covers rehab by clicking here for a no cost, private insurance approval.

4. Begin Treatment

Once all your questions have been answered and you're ready for outpatient addiction recovery treatment, our staff will schedule your admission date and you are able to begin your recovery program and a new chapter in your life.

Intensive outpatient treatment at Care Addiction Center is six weeks long, centered on small, intimate and individualized sessions in the evenings.

You can expect to participate in therapy sessions, working on identifying reasons you reach for a substance, discovering your own negative coping skills while combating them with positive coping skills, and learning tools, strategies and different mindsets to help you stay sober.

At the end of six weeks, you are not suddenly left on your own. Aftercare is an exciting and welcoming group which is involved in the community through picnics, golf outings, and sporting events in the area. Led by recovering individuals with more than 25 years of sobriety.
