Admissions February 25th, 2022 The Recovery Village at Palmer Lake

Admissions Process

As soon as you call, our staff will gather the necessary information for your personal intake assessment.

We want to plan the best course of action for your treatment. That’s why our intake pre-assessment process is designed to help our team determine your eligibility, most appropriate level of care, and individual needs.

What We'll Ask

Your confidentiality is our top priority. “We’ll ask you about your substance abuse and history, mental health concerns, eating disorder history (if any), your current environment and other medical information. From here, we’ll start on your initial detox planning.”

– Robert Fishman, Vice President of Admissions

Exploring Your Insurance Options

We believe recovery should be available to anyone in need of care. Which is why we work directly with your insurance provider to find the best option for you.

We accept most major health plans to help you pay for your drug or alcohol rehabilitation treatment. You can verify your benefits coverage online, call and one of our representatives can help you, or check with your health insurance carrier for final determination regarding specific covered services. Usually, prescription drugs used in treatment like methadone and suboxone are covered, but not always.

Understanding Your Treatment Options

It starts with understanding – We’ll walk you through the various components of addiction recovery and break down how our treatment programs work within this process.

Admissions FAQs

Making the decision to go to rehab is just the first step in starting your recovery. Next, it’s time to find a facility that works well for your needs. However, there are thousands of rehab centers throughout the country, and not all of them provide effective evidence-based care. This means it’s important to do a bit of research.

It’s normal to feel uncertain when looking for the right rehab, but learning the answers to the most commonly asked questions can help you better understand what a quality treatment facility can do.

Questions About Going to Drug & Alcohol Rehab

If you are struggling with substance abuse, dependence or addiction, rehab is often the best way to maintain lifelong sobriety. Treatment requires a multi-pronged approach that addresses the addiction itself, underlying causes of substance use and triggers to use drugs or alcohol. Without rehab, it can be difficult to address all of these issues effectively.

Drug rehab costs can vary widely, depending on whether the rehab is a private or publicly-funded location, treatment type, length of treatment, and much more. Typically, costs can run from a few thousand dollars to $25,000 or more. Fortunately, health insurance often covers some or all of these costs.

Yes, most health insurance providers are required to cover substance abuse treatment as part of their plans. However, different plans can vary in what types of treatment they cover.

The average length of a rehab stay is around 35 to 45 days. However, some drug and alcohol treatment programs may take more or less time to be completed.

Several laws prevent employers from retaliating against or punishing employees who attend rehab treatment using FMLA. However, workplaces with strict drug-free policies can still terminate employees who are using substances.

The Recovery Village at Palmer Lake is located at 443 South Highway 105 in Palmer Lake, Colorado.

The phone blackout period refers to the 72-hour period when we keep clients’ phones in a secure location. This is done to help clients acclimate to their new environment; after this period, clients can use their phones three times per week for 20-minute intervals.

Friends, family members and loved ones are allowed to mail you letters. If you receive any packages, they will be held until you leave the facility.

For most of your inpatient treatment, you will likely be living onsite without leaving the facility. As you progress to less-intensive levels of care, you will begin transitioning back into life outside of rehab.

Patients can smoke cigarettes during break times at designated locations. E-cigarettes and vape devices are not allowed, and cigarettes must last your entire stay and come in their original, unopened packaging.

It varies depending on your treatment program and the progress you make, but doctor appointments are usually used to monitor your progress, adjust treatment and form your recovery path. Outside of doctor visits, you will have around-the-clock access to nurses, counselors, addiction specialists and other support staff.

Returning home after rehab is when the recovery process really begins. You will be facing day-to-day life armed with helpful coping mechanisms, new ways of thinking and a body that has detoxed from drugs and alcohol. However, it’s still important to continue maintaining your commitment to recovery, which is where aftercare plays an important role.

It can be incredibly challenging at times to continue lifelong sobriety, but we make sure that you aren’t alone in your journey. Our aftercare services include individualized relapse prevention plans, routine follow-up appointments, counseling, support group access and many other resources. These programs allow clients to receive help when they’re struggling and continue their recovery with ongoing support.

An alumni program is included in our aftercare services. Those who complete treatment will gain access to a wide range of alumni resources, including support meetings, group events, phone check-ups and around-the-clock access to support helplines.

Sober living communities are places people can go after rehab to help ease back into daily life. Some have negative home environments that may damage their recovery process, while others want to take time to practice the skills they learned in rehab in a supportive, substance-free environment.

I honestly believe that I owe my life to Recovery Village. I stayed here for almost 60 days, and I feel like a completely different person than when I first went in. I finally have a chance at succeeding in my sobriety! The BHT Audrey was amazing and therapists Arno and Ann really helped me through some trauma that caused my addiction in the first place. I would recommend this place to anyone seeking help for their addiction! They really do care about you here and go above and beyond to make sure you’re getting the care you need!Edit: I’ve remained sober since I left PLR and achieved 5 months sober on Sunday the 13th! All thanks to the tools this rehab taught me and the resources they’ve provided to me. Thank you so much PLR!!

Palmer Lake was amazing for my detox and recovery. I was so impressed with the staff and how professional and friendly everyone was! They made me feel comfortable and not ashamed of what I was going through. I would highly recommend Palmer to anyone who is on the fence with sobriety. It’s been life changing.
