Am I Addicted?
An addiction to drugs is serious and can affect all aspects of your life including your finances, current career performance, and relationships. If you are unsure whether or not you are addicted, you can use our website: DrugRehab.org. Towards the top of the screen you will see a question mark icon that reads, “Am I Addicted?” Click on this icon. It then will bring you to a page where you can take our quiz (it’s free and confidential) to see whether you or your loved one has a drug addiction. Remember that this quiz is confidential and no information is shared or stored, so answer the questions honestly. You can also send us an email, or give us a call if you have any questions. If you have taken the quiz or already recognize that you need help, your ready to move on to the next section.

Step 2: Complete Phone Intake Evaluation
Our understanding and compassionate admission counselors will want to gather some information about you. They will administer a quick and easy intake evaluation over the phone to begin finding the best treatment options for you. They will collect information on:
- Types of drug(s) abused
- If you have had any past treatments
- Length and frequency of drug use
- Other medical conditions/complications
- Employment and current living environment
Step 3: Give Insurance Information
We will help you choose the best drug rehab. In this step, we will ask if you have private insurance. If you do, we will ask for your insurance information so that we can contact your provider to look into what benefits they have to offer for your treatment. If you are worried about the financial aspects of rehab, don’t be afraid about this step or let it hold you back. Most rehabs accept many different types of insurance, and several rehabs offer payment plans that will fit your budget.
Step 4: Make Travel Plans
You have decided on a drug rehab program that is right for you. Whether the rehab center is near or far, you are now ready to make travel arrangements. Whether you book a flight, travel by car, or have someone drop you off, be sure that travel arrangements are taken care of ahead of time. If you are going away for an extended period of time, you may also need to consider contacting a friend or neighbor to care for any pets, plants or yard work, and any mail that comes to the home. Travel arrangements can be stressful and the sooner they are taken care of, the more you can focus on your recovery.
