Safe Harbor Recovery Center, located in Portsmouth, Virginia, provides quality care to men and women who have been diagnosed with substance use disorders. We’re committed to providing compassionate care without judgement, beginning with our admissions process.
Researching Treatment Options
Choosing an addiction treatment center is an important decision, so we encourage you to research your options thoroughly. Our website provides a good starting point for learning more about the services we offer for individuals who are abusing alcohol, prescription opioids, or illegal street drugs.
Safe Harbor Recovery Center’s admissions representatives can answer any questions you might have about the program, including how our staff are equipped to handle the specific challenges you or your loved one may be facing. We are also happy to provide tours of the facility upon request.
All information provided is private and confidential. Our goal is simply to assist you in making the best possible decision for yourself or your loved one.
Paying for Treatment
No one should be discouraged from seeking addiction treatment due to cost concerns. At Safe Harbor Recovery Center, we are committed to making recovery as affordable as possible.
In 2008, the Affordable Care Act and Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act took a huge step towards recognizing the disease nature of addiction. This law requires all insurance providers offering coverage for mental health, behavioral health, and substance abuse treatment to provide benefits that are comparable to the same extent they cover other medical conditions.
Additionally, the law prevents discrimination against people with preexisting conditions—including substance abuse disorders. This allows you to apply for coverage at any time without fear of being denied due to your desire to seek substance abuse treatment.
Making Travel Arrangements
The decision to attend a specific rehab facility shouldn’t be based on location alone. Although Safe Harbor Recovery Center has many guests from Virginia, we welcome guests from other states as well. In fact, attending rehab out of state may aid the recovery process by providing a chance to focus on healing without the distractions of an unhealthy home environment.
If necessary, admissions representatives can provide information to assist you in making travel arrangements for yourself or a loved one. We’re here to make the process of seeking treatment for drug or alcohol addiction as simple and stress-free as possible.
As part of our admissions process, Safe Harbor Recovery Center’s guests receive a comprehensive intake assessment. This assessment helps determine an accurate diagnosis while identifying strengths, needs, abilities, and preferences.
Some of the many factors that will be discussed during the initial assessment include:
- Length of substance abuse
- Type of substance being abused
- If multiple substances are being abused
- Presence of co-occurring mental health disorders such as anxiety and depression
- Exposure to past trauma
- If the individual is experiencing chronic pain
- Other physical conditions that could affect treatment needs
- Family history of substance abuse
- Past experiences with addiction treatment, including if there has been a previous relapse
The comprehensive assessment is used to help clinicians develop an effective person-centered treatment plan. Since no two individuals with substance use disorders are exactly alike, Safe Harbor Recovery Center’s treatment plans are personalized for each guest. Treatment plans will address emotional health, physical exercise, life skills, and ongoing support to promote continued wellness.
