How does a Florida rehab work?

There are many different types of rehab in Florida, and generalising about how a Florida rehab works inevitably leads to a number of inconsistencies. However, there are a number of basic principles which should help inform anyone about the nature of a Florida rehab, both before entry and during a clients stay there.

It is important to understand how a Florida rehab works both in terms of its therapeutic approach to dealing with alcoholism, and in terms of its financial costs which can be prohibitive for a number of people.

A Florida rehab will have a number of clinical experts whose job it is to both assess and treat someone who has admitted with an addiction or problem with alcohol and/or drugs. The range of clinical experts should include medical doctors, psychologists and psychiatrists, nurses, dieticians and nutritionists and many other practitioners .

Most rehabs in Florida base their therapeutic approach and their clinical programs upon many of the principles found in the 12 step programme of Alcoholics Anonymous/Narcotics Anonymous and other 12-step organisations. A rehab will normally adapt these principles and use them in a slightly different way .

In addition a Florida rehab will usually have what is thought of as traditional therapy either on a one to one basis or group therapy or both. It is likely that the rehab will also have what it might call alternative therapies, such as yoga or tai chi. These can often be very beneficial in terms of doing bodywork with an alcoholic.

Florida Rehab – Fcilities

A Florida rehab needs to be able to detox a person if this is needed prior to treatment. This means that the rehab needs to have its own facilities and qualified medical personnel to oversee the procedure. Some rehabs either have their own in-house facilities, or have an agreement or arrangement with a local hospital that provides such facilities for them.

In any event, this is an important area of care to check prior to admission. A detox can often be needed and needs to be supervised medically and clinically with the utmost care for the well-being of the patient or client.

A Florida rehab that is residential will cost a lot of money . Most, if not all rehab is covered by the major health insurance plans, and this is the first thing to check if you have insurance.

Most rehabs have wide experience of dealing with insurance companies and plans and should work with you to ensure maximum coverage and benefit approval. A word of caution however.

Assuming that you have a plan that covers you or your partner to enter a Florida rehab for a residential stay, check with the rehab as to any additional costs that are not covered by the insurance for any additional therapies or medications.

A rehab should be aware at the beginning of someone’s residence what items would not be covered by the insurance plan, and should be able to advise you accordingly. Make sure this is done prior to admission otherwise it could be a nasty shock when leaving.
