Eat Clean and Stay Clean (and Sober)January 22, 2016 - Addiction, Recovery - 0 Comments
When someone enters one of our rehabilitation centers to overcome an addiction, we also want to improve their overall health. Many addicts do not consume healthy foods because they are immersed in an addiction. Alcohol or drugs are expensive, and an addict might spend the majority of their money on a habit rather than nutritional foods.
Types of Nutritional Care in Rehabilitation
In a high-quality rehabilitation facility, residents are provided healthy snacks and meals rather than junk food. An important part of residential rehabilitation is having daily meals provided by chefs who use nutrient-rich fruits and vegetables to prepare breakfasts, lunches and dinners. A healthier and cleaner diet helps recovering addicts to feel better physically and mentally.
Is Rehabilitation Private?
Many addicts do not want to enter a rehabilitation facility unless they know it is private, but we understand this concept and strive to maintain confidentially. While there are other people at outpatient and residential rehabilitation centers, we ask everyone to keep identities private in order to encourage overcoming an addiction to drugs or alcohol.
How Can Someone Get Answers about Rehabilitation?
We know that anyone wanting to enter rehabilitation has a lot of questions about the process. Clients can begin to ask questions during the intake process with telephone calls or emails, but we continue to provide answers during the detoxification phase of treatment. You may also have questions throughout rehabilitation, but we are happy to assist clients.
How Do Addicts Pay for Rehabilitation?
Before entering detoxification for an alcohol or drug addiction, we collect information from clients concerning insurance provided by employers or the government. Most recovering addicts use a combination of payment methods, including scholarships and private insurance. We can arrange for clients to begin making monthly payments after successfully completing treatment.
What Do Recovering Addicts Do after Treatment?
The detoxification phase of treatment lasts up to 10 days and rehabilitation requires 30 to 90 days, but an addict remains in recovery for a lifetime. A recovering addict must continue to participate in 12-step meetings and live a healthy lifestyle with proper nutrition.
