Admissions FAQ's

If you or a loved one is struggling with substance abuse, getting help can be overwhelming. We’ve put together a list of the most common questions we are asked by clients and loved ones. If you have more questions or concerns please contact us today.

Costs can vary because each person’s situation is different. Please call us and we’ll provide you with a free, confidential assessment to determine your specific cost based on your specific treatment recommendation.

Yes, we accept all major insurance plans including PPO, POS, and HMO plans that offer out-of-network benefits. Please call our admissions team to learn more.

ARP recommends at least 90 days of treatment. However; each individual is different and requires a different level of care based on their treatment plan. As a result, the specific length of time in treatment is determined by the treatment plan and the clients progress through each phase. Each level of care has its own recommended duration. Research has proven that long-term drug and alcohol treatment is most effective, as it provides ample time for clients to experience life in recovery.

Yes. All clients are assessed and undergo a thorough evaluation prior to us creating a treatment plan specific to their needs and situation. The evaluation encompasses an assessment of the client’s physical, psychological, social, spiritual and family needs to determine the most appropriate level of care. If we cannot help you in your specific situation, we have a wide network that we can refer you to.

Atlanta Recovery Place accepts clients dealing with substance abuse and dual diagnoses such as addiction and co-occurring mental health issues like depression, unresolved grief, anxiety, trauma, PTSD and bipolar disorders. All of our clients have a chemical addiction, but we address the whole patient in their disease. We screen the health status of all potential clients to make sure we are the proper facility for care. This usually involves a review of any medical history and records by a member of the medical staff, and an intake screening assessment.

Clients without chemical dependency or patients with a primary psychiatric diagnosis only. Individuals who are suicidal, with medical conditions that require inpatient care or clients with behavioral problems such as violence or flight risk are not appropriate for ARP.

At ARP we are always thinking outside the box, we view each client as a unique individual and as a result, we create a treatment plan that is tailored to each client’s uniqueness. We proactively find new ways to provide care that sets our clients up for success when they leave our program. Creating a solid structure and foundation for our clients allows them to successfully and independently live life  without the use of mind altering substances.

Unfortunately, no one can make your loved one enroll in drug and alcohol treatment. However, ARP can refer you to a Professional Interventionist who can help create motivation for your loved one to seek help.
