How to Prepare to Help Your Friend or Family Member

Be ready for them to brush off or deny your concerns when the time comes; having an outline ready of what you would like to say before a meeting can be very helpful in making the conversation effective and productive.

You and your loved one must remain calm in every conversation without becoming defensive or argumentative. Doing this may be challenging, but it will ensure they feel supported and safe with you.

It will help if you demonstrate empathy towards their situation by reflecting on what they said in your own words without agreeing or disagreeing – a form of listening known as reflective. Reflective listening can be extremely effective in getting them to talk openly about their thoughts and emotions with you.

Make it easier for your loved one to seek treatment by offering to assist in booking appointments with a therapist, reaching out to potential therapists, and checking insurance coverage. Furthermore, offer to accompany them on initial appointments to ease resistance towards seeking help.

Our admissions process is efficient and comprehensive. If your friend or family member is concerned by a lengthy admissions process and wants to start treatment quickly, we proudly offer one-day admissions.

We Work With Your Insurance

Each insurance carrier provides different levels of coverage for different treatment programs, but we can give you a good estimate based on historical data from each carrier. Unfortunately, we are unable to bill state and federally funded insurance or HMO plans.

We do accept private pay for treatment. Many people like this option to ensure they receive additions to their treatment, customization, and details that insurance might not provide.

The Center works with most major insurance providers. Learn more about our various financing options by clicking below.
