Q. What levels of care do Sovereign Health’s patients receive?
A. We provide a variety of levels of care to our patients as they progress through treatment. The available levels of care vary by facility, but can include:

  • Detoxification (DTX): Sovereign offers medically assisted detox at our Fort Myers facility.
  • Residential treatment (RT): Sovereign maintains a collection of comfortable, pleasant recovery houses based near our treatment centers. Patients can recover in these houses free of distractions and temptations.
  • Partial hospitalization (PHP): Patients at this level of care attend structured, intensive programming during the day and return home – or to a sober living facility – at night.
  • Intensive outpatient (IOP): Less intensive than PHP care, patients at this level make use of treatment services for only part of the week. Sovereign also offers a four to eight week evening IOP program for adults seeking substance abuse treatment. Patients in the evening IOP program receive nine hours of treatment each week, including addiction education and relapse prevention. They also receive complete case management services specifically tailored to their needs. Additionally, a physician is on hand to provide medical and clinical advice. Many IOP patients attend 12-step programs as well.

For more information, see our Levels of Care page.

Q. How long does rehabilitation typically take?
A. That’s a question with a complex answer. It depends on the patient, their history and the type of problems they may have. Most treatment stays last 30 days. However, studies show the longer the stay in treatment, the greater the benefits are.

Q. What is the admissions process like?
A. Before admission, Sovereign’s patients undergo a short interview so we can learn about their backgrounds, symptoms and problems. Information from this interview is used to craft an individualized treatment program for the patient’s specific needs. After the interview, the patient receives a start date for their treatment.

Before treatment begins, the patients receive a medical and psychological assessment, which also helps us determine the most effective course of treatment. Finally, they’re briefed by one of our compassionate intake coordinators, who inform the patient about our rules, policies and procedures.

For more information, see our Admissions Process page.

Q. Do you take insurance?
A. Insurance can create added stress for a patient already undergoing the stresses of treatment. Sovereign Health accepts most private insurance plans for our treatment programs. Additionally, our expert admissions staff will gladly help you determine how much coverage your particular health care plan provides – as well as any other financial options you may need.
