FAQs About Alcohol Use Disorder and Treatment

There is currently no proven “cure” for Substance Use Disorder, but there are many effective treatments that will help individuals struggling find long-term recovery and go on to live rich and fulfilling lives.

The brain structures and functions can change within long-term misuse of drugs and as a result, may alter the following:

  • Behavior.
  • Dealing with stress.
  • Learning.
  • Making judgments and decisions.
  • Retaining memories.

Rest assured, during your treatment, many of these symptoms can be improved or eliminated.

Many people diagnosed with Substance Use Disorder can benefit from undergoing the detox process as they begin their recovery journey. Detox requirements depend on the quantity and types of substances misused. The detox process is supervised by a medical professional, ensuring the safe and comfortable removal of substances from the body.

While detox can often be a vital part of the initial recovery process, addiction is centered in our brain and thought patterns. Residential treatment provides our clients with the time needed to implement new and effective tools required for long-term recovery in a comfortable and controlled environment.

Outpatient treatment may be recommended by your trusted healthcare provider if you require an intensive or rigorous form of therapy outside of a residential treatment setting. This treatment option suits people with families and careers who cannot take time away from their responsibilities, or for those who have already had residential treatment and are continuing their recovery journey from Substance Use Disorder.

There are many support groups and organizations that offer ongoing help, such as 12-Step programs, SMART Recovery, Wellbriety, and non-secular peer groups (both online and in-person). At West Valley Detox & Treatment Services, we offer our own Weekly Alumni meeting to ensure you have support long after leaving our facility.

Treatment for Substance Use Disorders is often covered by insurance; however, the type of coverage greatly depends on your insurance plan and if the treatment facility accepts it.

Medicare covers individuals aged 65 and over who have Substance Use Disorder, provided that the individual is covered under both Medicare Part A and Part B. The individual must also be a permanent resident of the United States.

To determine if your health insurance covers treatment at West Valley Detox & Treatment Services, call 855-785-5391 or email us at admissions@westvalleydetox.com.

One of the most important things you can do when selecting a treatment center is to make sure it is accredited by an accreditation body that has been recognized by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

These include:

  • Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO)
  • CARF International
