Is Treatment At Ark Right For You?
Ark Behavioral Health might be a good fit for you if you experience symptoms of addiction or other mental health conditions. Before choosing us, you should consider if our programs fit in with your daily life and financial situation.
- your symptoms
- your daily life
- your insurance
Consider Your Symptoms
Our facilities are accredited for addiction treatment and licensed for primary mental health care. That means our programs work best for people experiencing symptoms of addiction or other mental health conditions. These symptoms might include:
- mood swings
- sudden changes in energy or sleeping habits
- sudden changes in appetite or weight
- loss of interest in activities once enjoyed
- reduced motivation
- difficulty keeping up with responsibilities at work, school, or home
- isolation or sudden change in friends
- drug cravings
- tolerance (needing an increasingly larger amount of a drug to feel the desired effects)
- physical dependence (experiencing withdrawal symptoms, such as nausea or sweating, when you don’t use drugs)
- an inability to stop misusing drugs despite negative consequences, such as relationship damage, job loss, or health problems
To address these symptoms, our healthcare providers design personalized, evidence-based treatment plans.
Do You Need Medical Detox?
If you have addiction, your treatment plan will likely start with medical detox. During detox, doctors help you manage withdrawal symptoms as you get drugs out of your system. They may administer medications, IV fluids, or nutritional support.
Will You Benefit From Our Treatment Services?
Our treatment programs also focus heavily on individual and group therapy. We offer many types of therapy, such as trauma-focused therapy, grief counseling, and therapy for specific populations, including the LGBTQ+ community, first responders, and young adults.
Other services we offer include:
- medication-assisted treatment (MAT) to ease symptoms of alcohol or opioid addiction
- medication management for primary or co-occurring mental health conditions
- support groups
- wellness activities, such as exercise, yoga, and meditation
- case management
- aftercare planning
Are You In Crisis?
We also provide short-term stabilization services for people experiencing a mental health crisis. A mental health crisis occurs when you feel unable to function in daily life or when you pose a danger to yourself or others. Common signs of a mental health crisis include:
- sudden, extreme changes in mood or behavior
- inability to perform basic tasks, such as showering, eating, or getting out of bed
- paranoia (irrational mistrust of others)
- delusions (beliefs that conflict with reality)
- hallucinations (seeing, hearing, or feeling things that aren’t there)
- suicidal thoughts
To help you recover from a crisis, we offer services like psychiatric monitoring, counseling, and daily living skills training.
These services work well as an alternative to psychiatric hospitalization. They may also benefit people who have recently been hospitalized and want a less intensive level of care.
Think About Your Daily Life
To achieve long-term recovery, you must plan how your treatment will fit in with your daily life. For example, if you choose inpatient care, you may need to take time off from work or arrange childcare. That means you’ll need to find out how long your inpatient program will last.
Length Of Stay At Our Facilities
Our inpatient detox programs only last 7 to 10 days.
However, after completing detox, most people transition to one of our inpatient programs for addiction and co-occurring mental health conditions. These programs last up to 30 days. Our short-term stabilization programs for mental health crises last 14 to 18 days.
The exact length of your stay with us will depend on factors such as:
- the severity of your condition
- whether you have multiple conditions
- how you respond to treatment
Do You Need More Flexibility?
Our outpatient programs are much more flexible. In outpatient care, you live at home and regularly visit a treatment facility. The amount of times you visit the facility depends on the outpatient program you choose. We offer the following outpatient programs:
- a partial hospitalization program (PHP), which involves six-hour treatment days six days per week
- an intensive outpatient program (IOP), which involves about three to five treatment days per week
- a standard outpatient program (OP), which involves at least one treatment day per week
Note that outpatient care offers far less supervision than inpatient care. As a result, it’s mainly recommended for people with milder conditions and strong support systems at home.
What If You Lack Support Or Have Trouble Accessing Inpatient Care?
Even if you have a more severe condition or lack a supportive home, you might have trouble accessing inpatient care due to costs or time constraints.
In that case, we can help you find a sober living home. Sober living homes are safe, supervised housing facilities designed for people in recovery.
Verify Your Insurance
Many people pay for addiction and mental health treatment using insurance. Before choosing Ark Behavioral Health, contact us so we can verify that we accept your insurance.
You should also contact your insurance provider to determine what services your plan covers and how much you will need to pay out of pocket. Your out-of-pocket costs will depend on factors such as:
- the specific details of your health insurance plan, including your copay and deductible
- your length of stay
- the treatment services you need
- the location of the facility you choose
If you don’t have insurance or are underinsured, we can help you explore other payment or treatment options.
