FAQ / Frequently Asked Questions

We’ve provided answers to some of our frequently asked questions.

See our FAQ. We understand the challenges of addiction. Our clients come from different many different backgrounds and have their own very different needs. If you suffer from hydrocodone addiction, painkiller addiction, alcohol abuse or another form of substance abuse, from insurance to admissions, our rehabs in N. Atlanta Peachtree Corners, GA & Nashville, TN help those struggling to recover. See our frequently asked questions below:

Fortunately, the Affordable Care Act has made it a requirement for insurance companies to offer drug and alcohol treatment for those struggling and requiring treatment. For that reason alone, your insurance policy does offer benefits. Your treatment may be covered by insurance alone, however, you may be required to pay a co-payment. To find out what your insurance covers, feel free to call us or fill out our contact form, here.

At our Georgia recovery center, we recommend at least 90 days of services prior to returning home. While 90 days or three months is not always appropriate for each person, at Southeast Addiction, we offer multiple levels of care to collaborate with each individual and accommodate based on personal needs. Our Georgia drug rehab additionally supports reintegration back into the community so that they are given a solid foundation to promote and ensure lasting recovery.

The first step to admitting into Southeast is to speak with one of our Admissions Coordinators. During that time they will explain the step by step process and answer any questions you have. In addition, they will explain the costs of treatment after running a detailed verification of benefits that will go over what your insurance will cover. Finally, before admitting to Southeast Addiction, an admissions assessment and prescreen phone call will take place to ensure that you or your loved one is clinically appropriate to admit to our extended care program.

Our partial hospitalization program (PHP) requires a minimum amount of 30 hours per week of ongoing clinical support. That may look like individual therapy, group therapy, or visits with the doctor and psychiatrist. In the next phase, our intensive outpatient programming (IOP) requires a minimum of 15 clinical hours per week. Outpatient programming requires a minimum of six hours per week. Southeast Addiction Center additionally offers individual sessions with a client’s primary therapist which last one hour. Trauma-informed therapy including EMDR can often last an hour and a half.
