Q. Will I be admitted the same day I am assessed?

The first step in determining eligibility for the program is to speak with our intake department. We will review your intake, and, if eligible, you will be given an assessment day and time. When you are assessed by one of our counselors, we will inform you if any of our program offerings will be a good fit for you. All admission determinations will be made pending the final outcome of the assessment.

Q. What if I have a co-occurring mental health disorder or medical issues? Will I be allowed in the program?

The assessment allows Adams Recovery Center staff to determine the best level of care for each individual. Your ability to be admitted to the program depends on the severity of your mental health and/or medical symptoms and needs. Adams Recovery Center is experienced with working with those who have various conditions and providing them with the tools to succeed, and most clients are able to be admitted. Once you have been assessed, a counselor can discuss your options with you to ensure you receive the care you deserve.

Q. Is Adams Recovery Center just another 12-Step program?

No. While Adams Recovery Center values the impact and support of 12-step programs, the foundations of our program are evidence-based and individualized. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), the Hazelden curriculum, and the Therapeutic Community model provide our primary therapeutic approaches. However, we do understand that many of our clients will want to continue to engage in 12-step activities while in our programs, which is why we provide daily sober support meetings in our facilities.

Q. Am I able to attend church or engage in spiritual practices while I am in treatment?

Adams Recovery Center is dedicated to supporting all aspects of a client’s recovery, including religion or spirituality.

Q. What is a Therapeutic Community?

Adams Recovery Center utilizes a modified Therapeutic Community (TC) approach that allows clients to practice new tools and behaviors with their peers. Through mutual support, understanding, and accountability, clients feel confident in applying new mindsets and skills within their daily life. The TC also creates structure and provides opportunities for clients to gain responsibilities and leadership roles. Through these experiences, clients develop life skills that provide long-term benefit for sustained sobriety.

Q. Will I receive individual counseling?

Every client is assigned an individual counselor who will meet with them for individual counseling sessions weekly. Your counselor will be your primary support system and point of contact while you are in the program.

It is important to remember and worth repeating: Your length of stay in our program will be determined by your clinical needs. If you are unwilling to stay for the projected duration of your treatment, we will need to discuss other options with you.
