How Do I Choose the Best Rehab in Orange County?

If you or a loved one struggle with substance misuse, it’s best to make an appointment with your primary care physician, mental healthcare provider, or other addiction treatment specialist, who can perform a thorough assessment and inform the best level of care to suit your needs. From there, you’ll want to find a treatment center that provides the appropriate level of care and also meets your other specific needs. Some things to consider and ask include:

  • When can you get an appointment to be evaluated?
  • Does the facility take your specific insurance plan? AAC, which is in-network with several major insurance providers, can verify your insurance if you fill in the form below.
  • If you’re choosing not to use insurance to cover the cost of all or most of your treatment, what other forms of payment does the treatment facility accept?
  • Does the rehab treat co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders?
  • What evidence-based therapies does the facility utilize?
  • What accreditations does the treatment center have?

Orange County Rehab Admissions Process

While all treatment facilities have their own procedures in place, most admissions processes include some sort of over-the-phone evaluation. From there, you’ll have to decide how you want to pay for treatment, which should be considered an investment in your health or that of a loved one.

Based on the initial evaluation, medical history, substance use, co-occurring mental health disorders, and any other unique needs, the treatment team develops a customized treatment plan for you or a loved one. Treatment may involve a combination of levels of care, including medical detox, a partial hospitalization program (PHP), an intensive outpatient program (IOP), residential inpatient care, and follow-up aftercare.

Depending on the facility, travel arrangements may be made for you. Every facility has rules about what can and cannot be brought to rehab. You can read all about what to expect—including what to pack—during treatment at Laguna Hospital or any of AAC’s facilities.
