More Questions about Alcohol and Drug Rehab in Washington State

How long does rehab take?

Your rehab timeline will vary based on your unique needs, but here are some general guidelines: 

  • Detox: 5–14 days
  • Inpatient rehab program: 30–90 days
  • Partial hospitalization program: 2–4 hours per day, 3 days a week for as long as necessary
  • Outpatient rehab program: 2–4 hours per day, 3 days a week for as long as necessary

Is inpatient rehab more effective than outpatient?

Studies have shown that inpatient and outpatient rehab are effective forms of addiction treatment. If your situation warrants close monitoring and round-the-clock care, inpatient may be your better option. If you have a milder substance use disorder and a supportive home environment, then intensive outpatient care may work well for you. Your evaluation and assessment with qualified addiction specialists will help determine whether inpatient or outpatient is the right option for you. 

How do I know I’m choosing the best rehab facility in Washington?

It’s most important you choose a rehab that meets your unique needs. Wherever you are considering, ensure the drug and alcohol facility is accredited and licensed. You will also want to look for a rehab with a credentialed, multidisciplinary staff offering a continuum of care. Every Recovery Village drug and alcohol rehab facility meets these requirements — and much more.  

How can I pay for drug rehab in Washington?

Private insurance companies and Medicaid offer coverage for drug and alcohol rehab. The extent of your coverage will depend on the treatment you receive and the costs of your chosen rehab facility. At Recovery Village Ridgefield, we never want money to stand in the way of the treatment you need. We’ll always work with you to get you the treatment you need. 

Will I lose my job if I go to rehab in Washington?

The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) protect employees from being fired for a substance use disorder or alcohol use disorder. This does not mean that you can’t get fired if substance use interferes with your job performance. However, if you seek treatment and are diagnosed with a substance use disorder, you will be protected under FMLA and ADA, assuming you meet the conditions for eligibility.  

What happens to my kids if I go to rehab?

Having a substance use disorder and seeking treatment does not automatically mean you will lose custody of your children. If you attend inpatient rehab, you may need to leave your child with a significant other or family member. If CPS is already involved with you and your children, then they may be placed with relatives or in foster care. However, seeking addiction treatment will greatly aid your case in being reunited with your children.
