How Long Does Rehab Last?

Typical addiction treatment plans last from 30, 45, 60, or 90 days depending on the type of dependency. Depending on the type of programme you choose, you may spend more or less time in rehab. During the inpatient programme, you stay in the recovery centre for the duration of your treatment, while outpatient programmes allow you to come to the centre only when you are scheduled for therapy and treatment. Inpatient programmes keep patients away from addictive habits allowing healing to take place in a substance-free environment. Outpatient programmes are more suited for patients who need to take care of their career and home life. 

How Much Does Rehab Cost?

The costs of a rehab programme may vary by the type of treatment centre, and whether you choose an inpatient or outpatient programme. 

The cost can vary depending on location, length, and type of  treatment package included. Contact our specialists at Castle Health today to learn more info about  treatment options and their costs.

What Am I Allowed to Bring to Rehab?

Every rehab centre differs in the products you can bring. You can bring various necessities such as shaving cream and a razor, toothpaste and toothbrush. You will also need a list of items to help you buy different stuff you may not think about but end up needing during rehab. Stamps and envelopes are necessary as you are encouraged to write letters to family members and friends. Bringing pictures of friends and family can help you navigate easier through the process. A journal or notebook is recommended so you can write down your thoughts and experiences while on this journey back to sobriety. 

You may also bring tennis shoes and workout clothes if you are exercising or engaging in physical activity. It is recommended to bring both lighter and heavier clothes. No drugs are permitted at our recovery centres, so make sure that you do not pack them. Medication is allowed only if it is sealed and prescribed by a doctor. If you bring products that are not allowed, do not worry, you will get them back once you have completed your treatment programme.

What Is an Average Day Like in a Rehab Centre?

At our rehab centre, detox is the first step in your recovery process. This could last from one day to two weeks. After you have completed the detox process, you will be able to relax and recover by engaging in creative activities provided by our clinic. Depending on your treatment plan option, you may have a specific routine such as breakfast first, then mindfulness sessions, group or individual therapy, and outdoor activities. All Castle Health programmes will be fitted to the recovery needs of the patient while providing the necessary structure and stability for lasting change.

How Do I Get My Family to Trust Me After Rehab?

Gaining back a family member’s trust is not always easy, but it is possible. Completing one of our addiction treatment programmes proves you want to improve your life and are ready to make the necessary changes. Family and friends can be understanding when you share your struggles, and they can encourage you to follow the new path to a better and healthier life. Below are a few ways that can help you gain the trust of your loved ones:

  • Develop new routines. Sticking to a healthy routine may help you follow your goals and maintain sobriety.
  • Eat healthy meals. Eating healthy will show your family that you care about your well-being, and that you will respect your goals to reach sobriety.
  • Be open and sincere. This can help you regain their trust.
  • Avoid lying. They will lose the trust that you worked hard to rebuild. 

What Happens If I Relapse?

Relapse should not discourage you from following your path towards sobriety. This may be just an obstacle on your journey to a better life. Relapse can be an opportunity to readjust your path and attend a programme that offers you the support needed to navigate the recovery process.

The only person who can manage your dependency in the long term is you, and rehab can help you develop the coping mechanisms necessary to maintain sobriety.

Is Insurance Accepted?

Insurance is accepted at our drug rehabilitation programmes. Your insurance plan may only partially cover the rehabilitation programme. Contact us today to verify your insurance plan before deciding to enrol in a drug rehab programme at Castle Health.

If the insurance plan you have does not cover the cost of rehab, you can talk about other payment options with the specialists at our clinics. The programmes we have available may offer sliding scale payment options or financing plans to help you manage the costs.

What is an Inpatient Addiction Programme?

Inpatient programmes offer 24-hour professional care. At Castle Health inpatient facilities, our medical staff are always on hand to offer support and help to patients. This type of treatment programme requires patients to live full-time at one of our beautiful residential facilities located in the Irish or Scottish countryside. .

Rehab programmes can include one-on-one therapy, group therapy, and complementary therapies such as painting, equine therapy, or physical activities.

Those patients with severe addictions, addictions to multiple substances, or with coexisting mental health disorders have higher chances to build a solid foundation for sobriety if they choose an inpatient treatment programme.

What is an Outpatient Addiction Programme?

During outpatient programmes at Castle Health, patients come for treatment, therapy, and other services when they are scheduled, and then return to their homes and responsibilities at the end of the treatment sessions. This structure allows patients to continue their social and personal life while getting the proper treatment.

These programmes are suited for those patients with shorter-term addictions, limited time, or responsibilities at home or work.

Costs of outpatient care are lower than those of inpatient care because patients do not require residential accommodations.

How can I stage an intervention?

Our specialists at Castle Health can help you with intervention services and recommend following these five steps when staging an intervention:

Preparation and Rehearsal

First, the interventionist will discuss with the family or friends to understand what is going on and how they can help the loved one with the addiction. The specialist will educate all participants on mental health, addiction, and the intervention process. 

Friends and family can help the person with addiction understand how the addictive behaviour affects the entire family. Each participant to the intervention must write a letter for the loved one with dependency to better express their concerns. These letters should be pre-written and reviewed by a specialist before you read them aloud to the intervention. Each participant must rehearse and prepare before the intervention. They also need to develop a follow-up treatment plan, which the interventionist and rehab team can help afterwards.

Choose a Place and Time

The place where the family intervention is held should be safe and familiar for the person struggling with dependency. This helps the person be more relaxed during the intervention and may increase the chances of success. Make sure to schedule a meeting time when the family member with dependence will not be intoxicated. Interventions may last between 30 minutes and 90 minutes. It is recommended that everyone arrive early to prepare and rehearse.

Be Ready for All Outcomes

You can control or predict what your loved one reaction will be during the intervention. 

At first, they may deny that they have a problem, or they may become angry. This is a normal reaction. The interventionist can handle the situation. The specialist can establish trust and lead the conversation. They can calm everyone, even if the environment becomes hostile. The interventionist’s presence is important if you want the outcome to be productive. After each participant expresses their concerns, usually the loved one with addiction may be willing to get help and agrees to enrol in an inpatient treatment programme.  

Establishing boundaries

All family members participating in the intervention must be aware of the needs and recovery goals that need to be met by the loved one with the addiction. If the person with dependency gives up treatment, they must know that clear consequences will follow this decision. 

Possible consequences could be removing children from their custody, refusing to let them live at home, or cutting the funds they got from their family. Even if it is difficult for family and friends to stick to these decisions, these boundaries can motivate the person with the addiction to get the treatment they need and start the journey back to sobriety.


The goal is to convince the loved one with dependency to enrol in a treatment programme. Make sure you choose the treatment centre before going to the intervention. Castle Health clinics can meet the needs of your loved one. Our team of specialists can offer the necessary support during the recovery process.
