Frequently Asked Questions:
How many clients are at the facility?
The facility holds 16 clients and is usually at maximum occupancy. Having a small number of clients gives our staff the ability to give more individualized treatment.
How much does the program cost?
Recovery Works accepts most private insurance and private pay. After the initial assessment the level of care is determined and the treatment program is outlined. The charge to each individual is based on their specific program. The true cost to an individual is the price of not getting treatment. Job loss, incarceration, the expense of sustaining the substance of choice, and the damage to relationships with family and friends are all ways to experience losses. Quantifying these examples can be staggering when considering a lifelong addiction. Recovery Works accepts most major insurance providers. We are contracted with several major insurance companies, allowing us to utilize their memberís in network benefits.

How long are the programs?
A typical program runs from 20 to 30 days. Treatment may be longer for some patients based on their clinical progress, and on recommendations from the therapist. Our treatment approach and structured environment, enables our clients to move forward to life without drugs or alcohol.
After completing individual treatment plan goals in our full-day treatment program, clients are encouraged to continue treatment at a less intensive level of care. Recovery Works provides an evening intensive outpatient program to address this need for those clients that remain in the Georgetown area.
Do you have outpatient?
Recovery Works has an Evening Intensive Outpatient for our clients Monday, Wednesday, and Friday on a weekly basis. We also offer daily Partial Programs and Intensive Outpatient seven days per week. Families are strongly encouraged to attend our Saturday Program. Outpatient treatment provides support from our clinical team member while the client resides outside of our treatment facility. It also enables the client to test the waters while building their confidence to meet the challenges of day to day living.
What if the person has legal issues?
We will work with legal aid courts and probation officers to be sure our clients are in compliance with any current court orders or probationary requirements.
What about privacy and confidentiality?
Recovery Works is in compliance with the Standards for Privacy of Individually Identifiable Health Information ("Privacy RuleĒ) that establishes a set of national standards for the protection of certain health information.
