It’s normal to have questions about treatment and recovery.
Huntington Beach Recovery Center is committed to helping individuals and families with their substance use and mental health needs. We welcome any questions you have and will do our best to answer them.
Here are some of the most common questions we get from clients – it’s likely that you have some of the same ones! Of course, don’t hesitate to contact us for additional concerns. We want you to have all the information you need to make the best treatment decisions for yourself or a loved one.
Your detox period depends on the nature of your addiction. During your initial assessment, our clinical team will want to know what you are addicted to and how long you’ve been addicted. This, along with your physical and mental health, will determine how long detox lasts. On average, detox is typically anywhere from 3 to 10 days.
Residential inpatient treatment is generally 30 to 45 days. While we understand that not everyone can stay for a couple of months, it is the ideal situation. Research shows improved outcomes with longer stays in treatment.
Individual therapy is typically given several times a week, while group therapy is a daily occurrence. Therapy is a good time to explore your issues and connect with others who are going through similar struggles. You can request additional therapy if needed.
Yes, your treatment will always be kept confidential. The only ones who are allowed access to your documents are you and anyone else that you have granted access to. Furthermore, all treatment received at our facility is protected by HIPAA.
Yes. Huntington Beach Recovery Center accepts most large insurance carriers like Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, Cigna, NYSHIP and Beacon. The best way to verify your coverage and determine your out-of-pocket costs is by calling our admissions department. We also accept private pay.
Yes, we do recommend bringing along your medications if you can. Please bring them in their original bottles so that your clinical team knows the doctor who prescribed them, your pharmacy and your dosage. However, be aware that medications are subject to confiscation or re-evaluation based on your needs.
Your family can visit you while you’re in rehabilitation. In fact, we encourage them to do so at certain times! While we do allow family visits, there are some restrictions. We do not allow visitors while clients are in detox. Also, there are visiting hours. Ultimately, your clinical team will determine when you can have visitors.
We generally recommend bringing along comfortable, casual clothing, personal care items, medications and some spending cash. We will keep certain items, like money, locked up for their protection. You may also be able to bring your cell phone or laptop, as these items may be used after detox.
We realize that transportation can be an issue for some individuals. Please contact us to work out transportation arrangements to our facility. We can pick you up from the airport, if need be, and bring you safely to our treatment center.
