Addiction Rehab Process

Addiction Rehab Process in Virginia

Total Rehab centers in Virginia

Addiction treatment programs are beneficial for anyone struggling with drug and/or alcohol abuse or addiction. Drug and alcohol rehab is a long-term process and recovery can look different for everyone since no two people have the same exact needs or situation. Typically, when an individual enters rehab, it will occur in stages that includes detox, treatment, and aftercare, if necessary, and meet the specific needs of the patient.

Self Assessment

Substance Abuse Assessments for Drug and Alcohol Addiction in Virginia

Admission into a drug and alcohol addiction treatment program is an important part of the treatment process. The intake and evaluation components are key in determining each patient’s individual needs to design an appropriate, effective treatment plan. The treatment process should be comprised of detox, treatment, and aftercare, if necessary, and meet the specific needs of the patient.

Individuals will be diagnosed by a treatment specialist using the DSM-IV Diagnostic Criteria for Substance Abuse. Diagnosis of co-occurring disorders or dual diagnosis (having both a substance use disorder and a mental health condition) should also occur at the intake and evaluation stage to assess the addiction problem, general health status, living situation, and any other concerns.

Rehab Centers

Services such as detox, treatment, medications, and 24/7 monitoring may be provided, if necessary.

Detox Centers

Detox Centers in Virginia

Detox is the first step of the recovery process for individuals diagnosed with a substance use disorder. Detox will usually take 3, 5, 7, or 10 days, depending on the patient’s needs and situation. Medical detox provides evaluation and oversight by treatment professionals and involves the use of medication to relieve discomfort, taper off drugs or alcohol, and stabilize the patient. Once detox is complete, patients typically enter inpatient or outpatient treatment where issues such as co-occurring medical or mental health conditions can be managed and treated.

Recovery and Aftercare in Virginia:

Recovery and aftercare are important steps in the lifelong process that begins once addiction treatment is complete. The ongoing support that aftercare provides can help prevent relapse and increase chances of long-term recovery success. Aftercare can include mutual support groups, individual/group/family therapy, and sober living homes.

Information about rehab in Virginia

VA Substance Abuse Facts

Drug and alcohol abuse is a significant problem in Virginia. In 2015, about 25,000 people in Virginia over the age of 12 had used heroin in the past year, and approximately 397,000 Virginians qualified for diagnosis of an alcohol use disorder.1 

Nationwide, an estimated 21.7 million people needed treatment for a substance use disorder in 2015; however, less than 11% of those people actually received that treatment.2 Getting the proper care to the people who need it is a major initiative of addiction specialists, community organizations, and government initiatives. 


In Virginia, more than 22,000 people were enrolled in substance abuse treatment on a single-day count conducted in 2015.1 Of those, 40% were in treatment for both alcohol and drug abuse, showing the prevalence of polysubstance abuse.

Getting Addiction Treatment Help in VA

Every person in addiction treatment has a unique set of needs, and rehab facilities offer a range of features and amenities to choose from.

Knowing your options and determining what’s most important to you is the first step. Call rehab facilities in your desired area to learn more about:

  • Program details.
  • Insurance coverage.
  • Length of stay.
  • Family involvement.
  • Amenities such as private rooms or complementary wellness activities such as yoga classes.

Where Else Can I Find Help in VA?

If money is short, there are still plenty of ways for you to enter a substance abuse rehab center and receive addiction treatment and/or detox services. Government insurance providers like Medicare and Medicaid are currently required to provide benefits for addiction treatment.

There are also a number of rehab facilities that are happy to work with patients to set up payment options that meet their needs. This could mean a sliding scale option, in which the amount you’re charged is based on your ability to pay. Another option is a payment installation plan, which can be set up either directly with the treatment center or through a third party that provides low-interest loans and credit cards to help cover healthcare costs.

Recovery groups and 12-step programs like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous are also excellent resources, regardless of whether you’ve completed an addiction treatment program. In fact, many treatment centers rely on 12-step groups as the cornerstone of their recovery and aftercare programs.
