Phenomenal programs that offer a full continuum of care to truly give people the highest level of success! Incredibly grateful to be a part of something so wonderful.
I went to the Clearing after both doing a 12 step program and an aversion therapy program. Both, ultimately did not work for me.The Clearing takes a uniquely different approach and tries to build you up rather than tear you down. Part of the staff is fantastic and genuinely care about you. At the others, it seemed like the most important thing to them was if your insurance covered you and your check would clear. I was there for alcohol and it hasn't been perfect since I left there 18 months ago. I have had some slips but I have not fallen back into the hole I was in before. I have kept all my material from the Clearing and try to use all the tools that they gave me. So far, it is working and my life is significantly better than when I checked in. The site is beautiful, the food is outstanding, and as I already mentioned, the staff is remarkable. I absolutely recommend the Clearing to you.
Substance abuse and addiction are prevalent conditions that can impact both mental and physical health and have serious, if not deadly consequences. In the state of Washington:
Although drug and alcohol abuse affects so many Washington residents, the fact remains that not everyone who needs addiction treatment gets it. In 2015, there were about 337,000 people in Washington with a diagnosable alcohol use disorder; however, a single-day count of the state’s rehab centers showed enrollment of just over 50,000.4 Of those enrolled in treatment, more than 50% needed rehab for both alcohol and drug abuse.4
Abusing substances such as opioids, methamphetamine, alcohol, and even prescription medications can have a severe detrimental effect on a person’s livelihood and wellbeing. If you display compulsive behavior related to drug use, continue to use drugs despite negative consequences, or have even tried unsuccessfully to quit using drugs on your own, you may have a substance use disorder that requires professional treatment.5
Addiction treatment can take place in a variety of settings and formats, including full-time inpatient or residential rehab, outpatient programs, detoxification services, group therapy sessions, and one-on-one meetings with an individual counselor.
Whether it’s your home state or you’re traveling to WA from another state to escape a triggering home environment, the plentiful options and amenities offered by Washington rehab facilities guarantee that there’s something for everyone. During your research, it will be up to you to decide which features will best help you in recovery.
If finances are a concern, you will likely want to review your payment options before entering rehab. Determine what your budget is, find out what your health insurance will cover, and find a facility that will work with you, either through payment installments of a pre-determined amount or a sliding scale in which the amount you’re charged for services is based on your ability to pay.
If you do not have health insurance or your insurance doesn’t cover addiction treatment, there are other options available. Washington’s state Medicaid insurance program as well as the federal government’s Medicare insurance are mandated to cover substance abuse treatment programs. There are also low-interest healthcare loans and credit lines available so you can set up a payment plan that suits your needs.
