Frequently Asked Questions

Does insurance cover treatment?

Most private health insurance will cover the cost of treatment, depending on policy details. Please check your insurance at to identify if your insurance will cover the cost of treatment.

Can friends or family visit me while in treatment?

Visitations requests are made through your case manager and approved by your therapist. At Midas, we encourage the establishment of a support network. We understand that sometimes relationships are damaged from the active phase of addiction and require some work to repair. A family’s presence in addiction treatment is beneficial to long-term recovery. Therapy sessions, including loved ones, allow forgiveness and understanding. The goal is to bring families back together so they can support your greatness.

Can I keep my job while attending treatment?

In order to maintain a job or career, it might be necessary that you take some time to improve your quality of life. Most employers provide family medical leave options for employees seeking treatment. At Midas, we assist with acquiring a family medical leave for work. We also can assist with temporary disability benefits.

Can I bring my cell phone or computer?

There is a 5-7 day “blackout” period for cell phones and computers. If you have a specific need for your electronics, and your therapist does not feel it would threaten your treatment benefit, accommodations can be made.

Can I smoke cigarettes in treatment?

One step at a time. When entering substance use treatment, the overall goal is to eventually abstain from all substances. Initially, the goal is to remove the most harmful habits. The focus in treatment is not tobacco products. The focus is the substances ruining your life, such as alcohol or opiates. Designated spaces and times are provided for smoking.

Will I need money during my stay?

It entirely depends on your specific case. Most insurance the full cost of treatment. The cost of treatment that is determined upon admission includes all costs, and there will not be any additional expenses. Necessities such as shampoo, soap, and toothbrushes are all provided. All meals are provided as well as appointments with our specialists and other activities such as gym access.

How long does treatment take? What are the stages of addiction treatment?

Depending on your individual treatment plan, treatment can have a duration as low as 7 days or as long as 90 days. The basics stages are detox, then residential inpatient, and finally outpatient treatment.

The first 7 days of treatment are usually spent in detox. This level of care is supervised by medical personnel, and the focus is preventing and minimizing the painful effects of withdrawal. Once the body is relieved of physical withdrawal symptoms, the next level of care is residential inpatient, which is typically about 30 days. At the inpatient level of care, the focus is emotional and mental healing. The psychiatrist ensures your mental health is stable, clients learn to understand trauma and other causes for the seeking of substances, and preparation is made to prevent relapse via identification of triggers and erection of a support system.

After detox and inpatient treatment, clients transition to outpatient care. In outpatient care, clients live in a sober living environment and attend the treatment facility during the day. This level of care provides freedom while maintaining the supervision of addiction experts. Outpatient treatment typically lasts about 60 days.

Can I still take my regular medications while in rehab?

Upon admission, our medical director will review all of your current medications. Medications the doctor seems necessary will be continued. Typically, narcotic medications are not permitted to be continued.

What type of issues do you treat?

At Midas, we offer dual diagnosis treatment to address both substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders.

Whether it be trauma or something else, long-term recovery depends upon the treatment of mental health disorders.

Breathwork, yoga, meditation, sound therapy, and more are offered at Midas.

How often will I see the doctor?

Within the first day of treatment, you will visit with our medical physician. Throughout detox, the medical physician will oversee every moment of treatment and meet with you frequently. After detox, the medical doctor is not as present; the psychiatrist and psychologist doctors step in more frequently.

How often will I see a therapist?

In detox, you will not see the therapist more than once or twice. Detox is spent keeping the client as relaxed and comfortable as possible. After detox, in residential inpatient treatment, clients work hard in therapy sessions. Private therapy sessions occur twice per week, typically. Family therapy sessions are recommended in addition. Also, many hours per day are invested in group therapy sessions. Group therapy occurs on outings like nature hikes and is not limited to in the house.
