Frequently Asked Questions
If you or a loved one is considering treatment, you may have a lot of questions. We’re here to answer any questions or concerns you have regarding sobriety and our admissions process. Call us today if we haven’t covered a question. Upon calling, we conduct a free confidential assessment to see what type of treatment fits you or your loved one.
I've been to treatment before and it didn’t work, why should I go again?
Statistics show that some people must attend up to 7 treatment centers before they find a solution. The concept is not ALWAYS that you have been, more importantly it is that you are willing to continue to put positive effort into change.
How long is the program?
While AARC is an Individualized program and Length of stay can vary from case to case, we recommend that clients follow all clinical advice and follow through with the full continuum of care. It is known in the Substance abuse and mental health field that continuity of care is crucial for success.
What is your success rate?
Success rates are hard to determine as the act of a relapse can be very shameful for most suffering addicts. However, it is safe to say that Above All Recovery provides all the tools and opportunities for those we care for to have a real chance at life, sobriety, and success.
How much does treatment cost?
No matter what your situation, we can help. Your insurance may cover up to 100% of the cost of treatment. If you’re uninsured, contact us and we’ll find a program and plan that works for you.
What is a COD?
Co-Occurring Disorder, The average sufferer is not aware but a large percentage of those struggling with a Substance Abuse and alcoholism tend to have some form of Co-Occurring Disorder i.e. Anxiety, depression, adhd, etc. At AARC we believe that to treat one issue and not the other will almost certainly lead to failure. We use a wide range of methodologies both clinical and holistic in order to help relieve the symptoms of these conditions.
What do I bring?
We restrict very little in what you can bring. Again, we want you to be comfortable and be able to enjoy all the comforts of home.

We do however provide pts who are on track and making progress with pre-loaded IPOD’s.
Do I bring my medications?
While we do not allow controlled substances or narcotic medications we encourage for all clients to bring their medications. All clients are re-evaluated upon admission by our medical team and some medications may change however, we do recommend that you bring your current medications, so you may continue to dose until the change occurs.
Am I allowed to have my cell phone?
Treatment is based around the concepts of focus and willingness. For this reason, we do not allow cell phones as they may cause a distraction from the treatment process. We do however on a case by case basis allow access to cellphones or laptops if a legitimate reason presents itself and it is approved by the clinical team.
How often can I call home?
AARC Is an individualized program and family contact will vary from case to case. Family contact is always supervised by the clinical team and is restricted or allowed based on the affects it has on client progress and also based on the amount of relevant trauma that may be present.
