If you’re considering enrolling in addiction treatment, congratulations — it’s a big step, and we applaud your choice to pursue a healthier life. When you’re ready to begin the admissions process, we’re here to help.

We understand that choosing to attend rehab is a life-changing decision, and there are many factors to consider. Before and during your admission to The Recovery Village Palm Beach at Baptist Health Drug and Alcohol Rehab, our team will help you feel confident and secure each step of the way so that you can begin recovery in a supportive environment.

Admission Guidelines and Criteria

The most important admission criteria to enroll in rehab at The Recovery Village Palm Beach at Baptist Health Drug and Alcohol Rehab is a willingness to get help and a readiness to change. We’ll walk you through each step of the admissions process to make sure that your questions about treatment are answered and any concerns are addressed.

Step One: Contact Us

When you decide that going to treatment is the best next step in your life, your recovery can start with a free phone call or email to The Recovery Village Palm Beach at Baptist Health Drug and Alcohol Rehab.

Your privacy is a priority, so all communications with our facility are confidential as long as you are not at risk of harming yourself or others.

Who You’ll Speak With

When you contact The Recovery Village Palm Beach at Baptist Health Drug and Alcohol Rehab, you’ll be connected with a trained, caring intake coordinator. Because many of our representatives are in recovery themselves, they understand the courage it takes to pick up the phone and ask for help. Everything you discuss with the coordinator will be kept private to get you the help you deserve.

What to Expect When You Call

The coordinator you speak with can answer your questions about rehab and will complete a pre-assessment to determine your eligibility for treatment. During this phone call, you may be asked about your:

  • Current living situation
  • Current and past drug or alcohol use
  • Current and past mental health conditions
  • Family history of addiction, if applicable
  • Willingness to travel for treatment, if applicable
  • Health insurance policy

Your answers to this pre-assessment help intake coordinators better understand your individual needs so that they can match you with the appropriate program.

Step Two: Verify Insurance

Going to rehab may seem expensive upfront, but is ultimately an investment in your long-term health. Because health insurance can significantly offset the costs of rehab, the representative you speak with will verify whether your policy covers treatment at The Recovery Village Palm Beach at Baptist Health Drug and Alcohol Rehab or other national centers.

We accept most major insurance providers, except programs like Medicaid and Medicare. If you don’t have a health insurance policy, you can still get rehab help. Our team can discuss private pay rates with you to ensure that you can access the treatment you need with or without health insurance.

Step Three: Assess Treatment Programs

We’ll help you choose the best treatment program to suit your current mental and physical needs based on a healthcare assessment. Healthcare assessments are conducted over the phone by your assigned intake coordinator and should only take about 15-30 minutes, depending on your current substance use and medical history.

Each level of care at our facility offers unique benefits at different points in your recovery. Once you enroll in a program like detox or residential care, you can continue treatment through step-down programs like partial hospitalization or intensive outpatient. Finally, outpatient care can help you prepare for daily life in recovery. Medical detox may be needed if you’ve never been to rehab before, or if you need intensive care to cleanse your body of drugs and alcohol.

Step Four: Set a Date to Arrive

After completing your pre-assessment and verifying your insurance, your coordinator will help you choose the best day and time to arrive at The Recovery Village Palm Beach at Baptist Health Drug and Alcohol Rehab.

Depending on your current situation, your enrollment date may be just hours after your initial phone call, or it may be several days or weeks later. We offer admissions support 24 hours a day and can coordinate same-day admissions in many cases.
