How do I know if I need treatment?
There are many telltale signs that can determine you need help for your addiction or mental health issues. Take our addiction and mental health assessments to find out now.
What does your program do?
Launch is an intensive outpatient program treatment program that provides professional, effective rehabilitation for people who struggle with drug and/or alcohol addiction, eating disorders, and co-occurring or dual diagnosis disorders.
Does what you do work, and for whom?
Our individualized program works for any person who truly wishes to put in the effort. We meet every client halfway and will provide them with the knowledge and tools they need to succeed, but in the end a successful treatment episode is achieved by their commitment to do the work and the families commitment to support the work. The treatment team, the client, and the family must all be in alignment.
How will you determine what I need?
Each client is assigned a case manager and a therapist who work together with the client to assess the client’s needs and best treatment options for them. You may be asked to fill out a brief questionnaire. It is meant to be a positive, collaborative experience where you and your team come up with a plan together.
Will you help me find the right level of care, even if you cannot provide it?
Launch believes in providing the most comfortable and supportive environment possible for our clients to begin the extremely challenging journey into personal recovery, however we understand that some clients require a different level of care than we provide to best help them in this journey and we do our best to help them find the necessary care. Sometimes, a client’s condition may change, and we may have to refer them to a higher level of care. We will provide appropriate referrals and will help facilitate necessary connections.
Do I have a say in my client’s care? Can I tell you when it isn’t working?
We encourage clients to participate fully in their recovery. Communication between client and staff is imperative in keeping up with treatment progress. If a client feels like a need is not being met or that something is not working for them, we encourage them to voice their feelings and find a solution or come to a better understanding of the situation.
Do you employ persons who are trained to provide services for people like me?
Yes, we have fully trained professionals, some of whom have been through similar struggles with mental health or substance abuse. Because of the professional training our staff receives, and the years of personal recovery each of them has been though, Launch staff is able to provide understanding, motivation, and a shared purpose with each client.
Will you tell me all of this, and what it costs, before I enter care?
Before entry into our program, costs are discussed, and we work with insurance companies to see what coverage they can provide. We work so that there are no hidden costs after entry. However, down the line, there may be additional services that we recommend as treatment add ons. These services will be optional and are only meant to act as extra support should the client or family want it.
Will you be updating my family on my progress?
It is our goal to have both families and clients highly involved in the treatment episode. However, this may not be possible based on your wishes. We comply with all aspects of HIPAA and maintain ethical practices, and if you do not sign a release of information for someone, we will be unable to give them any sort of updates, or can only provide limited updates. However, we encourage you to maintain open lines of communication for the best possible outcomes.
How do I know I need treatment?
There are often many tell-tale signs that you may need treatment. Please take our assessment to see if you are exhibiting signs of addiction or mental health issues.
What if I relapse?
We do everything in our power to prevent relapses, but addiction is a powerful disease. Those that have used for many years or that have co-occurring mental health disorders may think “quitting” is impossible. Just because someone relapses, does not mean that they have failed or we have failed. It means they are simply still learning, and need further treatment and psychotherapy.
Will I still be able to talk to my family?
We do not hold phones or prevent families from communicating to loved ones. However, there may be certain cases where we highly recommend families and clients DO NOT communicate with each other outside of scheduled family sessions.
Should I stay in a transitional home or sober living?
We highly recommend that all clients that are enrolled at a PHP or IOP level of care are also enrolled in a transitional living home. Making the transition to a new way of life is very difficult, and removing old triggers and stressors is important to building a new foundation for the rest of your life.
How long will I be in treatment?
Treatments stays vary from person to person. The average client stays 2-4 weeks in PHP, 2-3 months in IOP, and can sometimes stay up to 6 months at the OP level of care. Everyone has a different experience, with different struggles, and your treatment plan will be based on your specific identified problems and goals.
What constitutes a successful discharge?
A successful discharge means that the entire treatment team has agreed that you achieved all of your identified goals, you stayed an appropriate amount of time, and you have a proper discharge plan in place that you are willing to follow.
What if I want to see my current therapist as well as attend Launch?
We respectfully request that all outside sessions be suspended while clients are in our care, unless the other therapist is specifically treating some area of concern that we do not specialize in. We will be updating your previous therapist throughout the course of your treatment, so we can have a seamless transition with onboarding and discharge. We want to create a space of clarity, alignment, and trust with the client, the family, and the treatment team. We will promptly refer you back to their private practice once the main part of your treatment episode is over.
