Latest Reviews Of Rehab Centers In Iowa IA

All the staff was extremely nice and I received quality individualized therapy sessions. I felt like my treatment was a top priority.

Very good facility. The staff is very kind and caring. All the therapy sessions are great and very informational. If you complete this program properly and fully I believe you will be more successful in your recovery. Jamie and Hope are also the best Resident Assistants in the program and will help you on the path to Recovery because of them I have hope in my sobriety.

I just left CODE 411 (DARE) and the place is really amazing. I have been to a bunch of facilities (unfortunately ) and this is by far the nicest one I have ever been to or even heard about. It really is a mountain resort with amazing people. The Doctor and therapists were great. Food was amazing. Hopefully, this was my last one. I can honestly say, that they care about me and this is the first time I will miss a treatment center I went to. I highly recommend.

Prevention Concepts, Inc. is very successful in inculcating the faith in me that I can resist alcohol even when it is readily available or when all my friends around me are consuming it. I had avoided being social because I was not confident about myself. Prevention Concepts, Inc. has really helped me in regaining self-confidence.

IA Substance Abuse Facts

Problematic drug and alcohol use impacts the lives of millions of people across the United States, and Iowa is no exception. Many residents of Iowa suffer from the negative consequences of substance abuse and addiction each day. Consider the statistics from 2015 concerning Iowans aged 12 or older:

  • Approximately 1.45 million people reported past-month alcohol use.
  • About 165,000 individuals reported having an alcohol addiction at the time.
  • Roughly 235,000 people had used marijuana in the past year.
  • An estimated 3,000 people reported past-year heroin abuse.
  • Around 27,000 individuals used cocaine that year.

Nearly 9,000 people were receiving substance abuse treatment services on a single day count in 2015, which was a decrease a single day count in 2013. Access to alcohol and drug addiction treatment is extremely important, but many people don’t know where or how to find help.

Getting Addiction Treatment Help

There are many different ways you can find the substance addiction treatment you need to recover from drug abuse. Further, you can always contact treatment centers directly. If you’ve been looking into certain centers in your area or rehabs to travel to, you may want to help narrow down your options by first creating a list of specific program features and treatment offerings you’re looking for and then inquiring as to which programs come closest to meeting your criteria. You can ask questions like:

  • Do you offer detox services?
  • How much does the program cost?
  • Do you help transition people into aftercare programs?
  • Do you accept insurance?
  • Which insurance plans do you accept?

While conducting your research, you may come up with any other questions that pertain to you and your individual needs. If you’re feeling overwhelmed and want assistance connecting to resources, call us at any time.

Where Else Can I Find Help?

If you’re looking to enter a substance abuse treatment program without the help of insurance, there are a number of financing options that can help to reduce costs of treatment. High treatment costs shouldn’t be an absolute barrier to seeking help. Many programs will work with you to place the recovery services you need to get clean and sober within your financial reach.

A few ways in which you can pay for treatment include payment plans offered by the treatment program you attend, sliding scale costs based on what you can afford, and grants through the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.

You might also ask about whether programs you’re interested in offer scholarships or even look into attending a state-funded program that provides free or low-cost recovery services.
