We know that entering treatment can be intimidating for several reasons, especially if you aren’t sure what to expect or what to do when you get there. The facilities that make up Delphi’s family of treatment centers aim to make the admissions process as transparent and simple as possible so that you can stop worrying and start focusing on your recovery.
When you enter a Delphi facility, you will be assessed and placed into a treatment plan based on your substance of use and the severity of your addiction.
After that, your case manager will work with you to address any outside issues that are put on hold during treatment.
Then, depending on your level of care, a compassionate team of certified counselors, clinicians, and/or medical professionals will be at your disposal as you begin to go through your treatment program.
What to Bring to Treatment
The staff at each of our facilities are committed to providing you with a smooth transition into treatment and an equally smooth transition back into the real world.

At Delphi, we want to make sure that cost is not an obstacle that keeps you from receiving the treatment you need. That’s why we not only accept self-payment plans but we also partner with a wide variety of popular insurance providers. Our goal is to provide quality, yet affordable treatment.
Substance abuse insurance coverage can be tricky and confusing for people. Because of this, understanding whether your health insurance covers substance abuse and addiction treatment insurance coverage is important. No one should ever feel unable to receive the life-saving or life-changing treatment he or she may need.
Insurance And You
When it comes to addiction treatment, many people turn to private health insurance to cover the costs associated with treatment. There are a variety of different health insurance providers out there, all offering different plans and options.
Most insurance plans cover addiction treatment. However, there may be a number of rules or stipulations in place regarding just what kind of treatment, how long you’re covered for, and where addiction treatment is covered.
A Few Of The Insurance Companies Delphi Works With:
- USA Managed Care Organization
Some insurance companies require addiction treatment facilities to be “in-network”, or having specialized contracts in place between the insurance company and the facility. Another factor leading to the ultimate decision of whether or not your substance abuse insurance coverage will be effective is whether the facility is private or public or in-state or out-of-state.
At Delphi Behavioral Health Group, our insurance specialists handle all of the hard work associated with the approval process for addiction treatment insurance coverage. Our experts will reach out to your insurance companies and find out just what may or may not be covered.
If your insurance company is not listed above, don’t worry! We still may be able to accept your insurance or work out a full or partial payment method. We will discuss options and always assist you in reaching a feasible financial plan tailored to meet your needs.
What Is Covered By Insurance?
So, what exactly is the extent of substance abuse insurance coverage? Most plans will cover all addictions and substances. However, it is important to keep in mind that your policy may be different—some plans may only cover certain substances. For example, in rare cases, it may cover alcohol addiction treatment but not heroin addiction treatment. Making sure that your plan covers your specific needs is important.
Every plan and every insurance company is different. That’s why it’s important to understand your benefits and plan coverage before heading off to treatment. Typically, most insurance companies prefer to cover outpatient treatment as opposed to inpatient treatment. However, the individual needs of each client vary. Some individuals may require a higher level of care or detox services.
At Delphi Behavioral Health Group, we understand the importance of meeting every client’s individual needs. That is why we have flexible full or partial-payment plans available to all of our patient’s in order to make your treatment needs feasible and a reality.
Here Are Some Services That May Be Covered By Addiction Treatment Insurance Coverage:
- Medical Detox
- Maintenance Medications
- Residential care at an in-network facility
- Dual diagnosis treatment, or Co-occurring disorder treatment
- Outpatient care
- Aftercare programs
For How Long Am I Covered?
The duration of time spent in addiction treatment is another crucial variable to the complex equation of insurance coverage. Depending largely on the specific insurance plan you have, your policy may cover your entire stay at treatment. Other plans may only wish to cover a set number of treatment days, which may present difficulties if you require medical detoxification and stabilization.
Once again, the number of days allotted may also depend on whether you attend a public or private treatment facility as well. Since private facilities tend to be more expensive, you may reach the maximum treatment coverage faster than you would a public facility.
However, don’t let this impact your decision when choosing which addiction treatment facility to attend. Different factors such as quality, credentials, and treatment options are just as important if not more so than cost. Deciding to attend a program which has a high success rate is also imperative. You don’t want to settle for less than you need or deserve when it comes to addiction treatment.
That’s why we here at Delphi Behavioral Health Group have made a commitment to our clients to always provide different payment options. We believe addiction care should be accessible and affordable, and we can work with you to make your treatment needs a reality.
Addiction Treatment Frequently Asked Questions
1. What Is Addiction Treatment?
Addiction treatment at one of Delphi Behavioral Health’s excellent facilities is a personalized plan of therapy with the goal of giving you the tools to maintain abstinence from drugs or alcohol. Depending on your individualized treatment plan, you will most likely meet one-on-one with certified therapists and in group settings to learn effective coping mechanisms for whatever might trigger drug cravings.
There is no one-size-fits-all addiction treatment plan, so a clinician will sit down with you to create one that meets your needs. While you may have personal benchmarks, the overall goal is the same: to give you the tools to lead a life free of addiction.
2. How Effective Is Addiction Treatment?
The goal of addiction treatment is to stop drug use and to help you return to a productive life in your family, work, and community. With these goals in mind, treatment is the most effective option available.
Studies show a significant drop in drug use and criminal activity among people who enter and remain in treatment. Still, treatment is not guaranteed to work for everyone, especially if you complete the program and stop pursuing recovery in aftercare programs or support groups.
Relapse rates are similar to ones seen in diabetes and hypertension, at between 40 and 60 percent. However, relapse after treatment isn’t inevitable.
Addiction treatment is only as effective as you allow it to be. By completing the full continuum of care, which is following each step of addiction treatment from detox to aftercare, you will increase your odds of success. Since the full continuum of care allows recovering addicts and alcoholics to build a more solid foundation in recovery, it can help increase the likelihood of long-term success in sobriety.
3. How Does It Work?
The full continuum of care as mentioned above works as a “Step-down” program beginning with more intensive treatment that slowly allows patients to achieve more personal freedoms. In this method of treatment, patients are given more attention and are closely monitored in the precarious beginning stages of addiction treatment. As they progress through their program, they will begin to be delegated more privileges and freedoms. This allows them to slowly acclimate to daily life without being overwhelmed at the beginning, which could ultimately lead to relapse.
Here is a breakdown of the full continuum of care:
In the first stage of treatment, medical detox is provided. During this stage, a patient will be admitted to the detox facility and be given an initial assessment of their physical health and addiction. From there, the attending physician will prescribe a variety of different prescription detox medications designed to help ease any withdrawal symptoms that may be encountered during this stage.
Inpatient Rehab/Residential Care
The next stage of the full continuum of care will be inpatient rehab, also known as residential care. This is when the patient, now fully medically stabilized by detox, is taken to the rehab facility where they will be living full time.
While it may vary from client to client, the average stay during this stage of the full continuum of care is anywhere from 30 to 45 days. Clients will be given a little more freedom than in detox in that they may be able to participate in outside 12-step meetings and activities but are still not back in the outside community. The focus must be on addiction therapy, and clients may not be ready to handle the pressures and temptations of being back on their own.
Partial hospitalization, or PHP, is the next stage in the full continuum of care. The idea behind PHP is to begin to prepare clients for their eventual return to the hustle and bustle of their daily routine.
During the PHP stage, clients will no longer live at the facility. Instead, they may return home or perhaps move into a sober living home, or halfway house. Regardless, alternative living arrangements must be made for the client.
Intensive outpatient, or IOP, follows partial hospitalization. Intensive outpatient is another step-down from the proceeding step that allows clients to ascertain a little more personal freedom.
Instead of attending therapy sessions for 20 hours per week, five days per week, these times are cut down yet again. IOP lasts anywhere from 9 to 20 hours per week, varying on a case-by-case basis. Every treatment plan is custom tailored to match the individual client’s needs.
Outpatient is the next step in the full continuum of care. Hours spent in outpatient sessions can then drop to only one hour per week. But due to the lower frequency of outpatient or OP sessions, this stage of the full continuum of care lasts longer. OP can take place for six weeks all the way up to several months.
Clients will still be receiving therapy but on a much less intensive scale. At this stage in their addiction treatment and recovery, clients should be almost completely acclimated to life in the community in sobriety. The remaining OP sessions help solidify the client’s recovery and offers minor additional therapeutic support. Clients should fairly self-sufficient at this stage, but still subjected to drug testing.
Aftercare or Alumni groups are intended for clients to join after completing the full continuum of care. These Alumni groups keep clients who successfully completed the program in contact with one another and the treatment facility. By doing this, it creates a community among past clients who can continue to support one another through their journey in recovery as well as maintain a point of contact with the facility even after treatment is done.
Maintenance programs are also great tools to follow up treatment. These maintenance programs give newly recovering people a source of support among other recovering people as well as a program of recovery to follow in order to continue on in sobriety.
4. What If I Relapse?
Relapse is a fact of recovery. Relapse rates for addiction are about as common as they are for other chronic diseases like diabetes. While relapse is common, it’s not inevitable. Treatment is an individual process, and everyone is different. Some achieve long-lasting sobriety after going to a treatment center once, and others take multiple attempts. No matter what, it’s important to go into treatment knowing two things: 1) The treatment and therapy you receive can lead to long-lasting recovery, especially if you make a long-term commitment to recovery. 2) Relapse is not a failure, it just means that your treatment and coping strategies should be re-evaluated and re-applied.
5. What Is Inpatient Addiction Treatment?
Inpatient treatment is 24-hour medically monitored care. It doesn’t typically involve constant medical treatment as in detoxification, but if there is a medical emergency, staff members in inpatient treatment programs are ready.
This is typically used to treat people with medical issues that would present a challenge to treatment, people transitioning out of detox, or people that require more intensive treatment. If you are in an inpatientfacility, you will have access to an interdisciplinary team (medical and clinical professionals). Overall, it’s a highly structured andsupportive recovery environment.
6. How Long Is Treatment?
Treatment is different for every person, and the length of time you spend in treatment will depend on how you progress. However, there are a few general benchmarks that are followed to ensure the best outcome for you. Studies have shown treatment that’s too short is ineffective and leads to a high relapse rate. Treatment that’s too long will have diminishing returns, and won’t benefit you to stay longer. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the most effective treatment length is 90 days. You may complete treatment sooner or later than that, depending on your personal progress.
7. Will Treatment Cure My Addiction?
Addiction is a chronic disease that affects the brain but teaching your reward system to seek your drug of choice as a stress release. Even if you enter recovery and maintain sobriety, you will still have cravings that pull you towards relapse.
There is currently no known cure for addiction; however, it is a very treatable disease. Through behavioral therapy and other treatment options, you can learn to deal with addiction, preventing relapse for years to come.
8. How Can I Afford Treatment?
Delphi Behavioral Health Group accepts most forms of insurance; if you qualify for treatment, most insurance companies will cover addiction treatment. Our team will work with your insurance provider to get them to cover the best treatment options possible.
If you don’t have insurance, you can pay privately if you are able. If not, friends and family or private lenders may be able to help cover you. Ultimately, whatever you can do to get the best treatment for you is worth it, especially since addiction often threatens to affect every part of your life, including your job and income.
Some of the items that influence the cost of addiction treatment are the following:
Different addiction treatment programs offer different amenities. Some treatment programs have different features than others that may impact the cost of your treatment. Different amenities include an on-site chef, a pool, basketball court, or private rooms, just to name a few. Take a close look at the feature of the facility to find one that matches your wants and needs.
Length of Program
Obviously, the time you spend in the program will impact the amount of money you spend throughout your stay. While here at Delphi Behavioral Health Group we custom fit treatment programs to fit your specific needs, taking a look at how long you’ll be staying will let you see how much it’s going to cost in the long run.
Much like travel lodgings, it’s all about location, location, location. Where you receive addiction treatment also has a big impact on cost. Certain states and cities have lower rates of the cost associated with receiving addiction treatment. However, it’s important to remember that this is your life and addiction, and getting the very best in addiction treatment is crucial in order to obtain long-term recovery.
Type of Program
Finally, the type of program you attend will also affect the cost of treatment. Some facilities offer more costly therapies. There are a variety of therapy types such as holistic therapies or more traditional talk therapies. Depending on your wants and needs, you’ll be matched up with the perfect program for you.
9. Cost Of Treatment Vs. Cost Of Addiction
Many people believe that they cannot afford addiction treatment and that it is not worth the cost. However, what many people fail to realize is that while the initial cost of addiction treatment may seem high, it is actually financially savvy to go. The cost of addiction over one’s lifetime can reach tens of thousands of dollars. Many costs end up accumulating as a result of actively using drugs and alcohol.
Things Like The Following Can End Up Extremely Costly Over Time:
- Cost of substances
- Legal fees
- Loss of work
- Medical bills associated with addiction
While addiction treatment may seem expensive, it is an investment in yourself and your future. By overcoming active addiction, you can avoid these costly outcomes listed above or worst case scenario: death. Addiction treatment can also be financially feasible by a variety of different means such as private insurance.
10. Where Should I Go To Treatment?
One of the biggest questions when considering rehab is whether you should attend treatment locally or far away. However, there are several questions to consider when deciding on the location for your treatment. Which center offers the programs you need? For instance, if you’ve had a past trauma, you’ll want a center that offers trauma therapy. Another benefit of going to treatment out of town is getting away from your old stomping grounds. In your neighborhood, you know where to get drugs, and you know people who can get it to you. If you remove yourself from that temptation, it may help prevent relapse while you’re in treatment.
11. How Is Luxury Treatment Different?
Luxury treatment offers more amenities and comforts than a typical treatment center. At a luxury treatment center, you will have access to state-of-the-art facilities, comfortable accommodations with great views, and gourmet food. Other additions may be available as well. For instance, some luxury facilities might offer a fitness center, a dietician, bowling, and meditation and relaxation opportunities. Luxury rehabs also may be in beautiful destinations like sunny South Florida.
