FAQs (and Answers!)

I am paying out-of pocket for treatment. Are New Dawn’s programs affordable?

Yes. While some programs charge $1000 a day or more for Detox and Residential Rehab, our costs are very affordable for the vast majority of those seeking treatment.

Is an expensive treatment program better?

No. In fact, there is no study linking program cost to better treatment outcomes. The key factors that matter most are the use of evidence-based therapies such as cognitive behavioral therapy, intensive individual and family counseling with masters level therapists and addiction specialists, and a person’s own commitment to their recovery.

Will my insurance cover the cost of treatment?

In most cases insurance will cover most if not all of your treatment costs. That’s because we are a network provider with most insurance companies and labor unions. However we do not accept Medicaid, Medical, Tricare, or Kaiser.

How long does treatment take?

While all treatment plans are customized for every individual based on his or her needs and level of acuity, generally speaking those suffering from either drug or alcohol addiction or an eating disorder will need long-term treatment to fully achieve lasting recovery. Expect at least a 90-day commitment, which may involve 30 – 60 days of residential treatment followed by intensive outpatient 4 – 5 days per week for about 6 weeks. This is because the brain chemistry cannot fully recover for at least a year after treatment begins, and so relapse is most common in the first 6 months following treatment. The most important factor tied to successful recovery is program completion and participation in an aftercare program or support group.

Does New Dawn offer Aftercare Support?

Yes. Individuals who complete at least the 30 day Residential Rehab program or our 6 – 8 week intensive outpatient program are eligible to receive free aftercare for life at our weekly counselor facilitated aftercare support group.

Do I need a medical clearance before coming to New Dawn?

In most cases, no. Our Psychiatrist and/or Addictionoligist can provide the medical clearance that you need during the Admissions process. Our Nurses are also available to assist with the medical evaluation.

Can New Dawn help me if I have a co-occurring disorder?

Yes. Because we have licensed psychologists and therapists on staff, our clinical team has the ability to work with you on identifying and coping with any co-occurring disorders that may be contributing to your addiction or eating disorder.

What if I am on medications? Do I have to stop taking them?

This depends on the medications you are on, and whether or not they are contributing to your addiction or eating disorder. Our Psychiatrist will evaluate your current medications, and prescribe alternate medications for you if necessary to help you in your recovery.

Is it better to go to a treatment program that is local?

Yes. While many programs (especially the most expensive ones) will argue that treatment is most effective away from your hometown, this is completely false and not supported by any research whatsoever. What is supported by research is the fact that individuals who have a strong aftercare support system in place, and who participate in intensive outpatient following their Residential program stay have the highest rates of success. Family involvement is also extremely important, and will be limited if you don’t go to a treatment center in your hometown.

Does New Dawn provide Interventions?

Yes. We have licensed therapists and addiction specialists who are specially trained in working with families and friends to facilitate an intervention.

Do I need a referral to get into New Dawn?

No. All you need to do is contact us at our main Intake Line (866-969-4300) where we have Admissions specialists standing by 24/7 to answer your questions and get you started. They can verify your insurance benefits for you and then work with you on scheduling your assessment and admission.

How quickly can I get admitted?

Usually we can schedule an admission within 24 – 48 hours of the initial call.

Is my admission into a treatment program confidential?

Yes. All of your information will be kept strictly confidential as required by HIPAA, State and Federal regulations. Your treatment information is only shared with those who you give express written consent to share with (such as a parent or loved one).

What is the first step?

The first step is to call us. We can answer any questions you may have, give advice on the best level of care for you based on a short phone assessment, discuss any financial questions or concerns you may have, and schedule your admission at a time that is convenient for you.
