What To Expect At Rehab
We understand you may not know what to expect at rehab, you may feel anxious, uncomfortable, or perhaps even resistant to treatment. Please know none of these feelings are unusual – almost everyone has some level of trepidation before they enter treatment. It’s a big step. It might be one of the most significant events in your life. We want you to know we’re prepared for you, whatever state you arrive in, and we’re experienced in helping all our patients make the transition to rehab as smooth as possible.
Before you begin your treatment, our doctors, nurses, and therapists will thoroughly evaluate and assess your condition, so they can begin to create your individualized treatment plan.
7-Step Standard Assessment
Before you begin treatment, our doctors, nurses, and therapists evaluate your current condition so they can get to work on your individualized treatment plan. Here’s a description of the entire process:
This happens before you arrive. An intake specialist collects all relevant information for your treatment over the phone. Review the pre-admission screening process if you have any questions.
A nurse performs a comprehensive assessment of your physical and mental status. The assessment includes a full review of your medical, psychiatric and addiction history. The nurse contacts our on-duty physician for admission orders and prescription medication if needed.
This is standard practice for any patient entering treatment at Just Believe Recovery.
Once we have preliminary information about your health and substance use history, a member of our medical staff gathers a complete medical history and performs a physical exam.
A member of our medical team evaluates your psychiatric (mental and emotional) health and assesses your addiction.
You meet with a therapist to provide a first-hand perspective on your background, substance use history, and personal goals for treatment.
Within 24 hours of admission, you tour the facility, get an overview of the patient handbook, and have the opportunity to ask any further questions about your upcoming treatment.
