Here are some frequently asked questions regarding the treatment and structured services at Origins Behavioral HealthCare:
What can I expect when I call?
When you call, we will conduct a confidential telephone assessment that will help us determine if Origins is the most appropriate center for you or your loved one. Our compassionate team will happily answer any of your questions to ensure that we can best meet your individual needs.
Will I have to discuss my case with dozens of people?
Once screening begins, you will be assigned a personal Admission Specialist who is responsible for overseeing your unique case. You won’t be passed between dozens of staff members. We understand that opening up about addiction is difficult. Our goal is to make you as comfortable as possible, from your first call and throughout your entire stay.
What if my loved one needs an interventionist?
Sometimes, the individual in need refuses treatment or cannot see how desperately they need it. Even in these cases, it is still possible for that person to recover. An Admissions Specialist can help determine if a professional intervention would be appropriate. Our team of addiction specialists can make an appropriate referral to a qualified professional that can guide your family through the process of an intervention. It is possible to secure the date of admission before an intervention.
What will my costs be for treatment?
The cost of primary residential care includes housing, meals and therapeutic services. These services include assessments and detoxification, psychiatric evaluation and follow-up, psycho-education, and psychological, spiritual, wellness, and addiction therapies. Please contact an Origins Admission Specialist for specifics regarding cost.
Can I finance my treatment stay?
Yes, payment plans and financing options available.
Does Origins provide detoxification services? Is detox available separately from primary treatment?
Origins offers carefully monitored inpatient medical detoxification. Detox is included in our residential treatment programs. Our detox units are located onsite and medically staffed 24/7 by our team of dedicated medical professionals.
How are families involved in the treatment process?
Origins considers alcoholism and drug addiction to be family diseases that can affect the entire family system. Families are encouraged to participate in our Family Programs which combine education, support, and therapeutic interaction with other families and the patient. Shortly after admissions, Origins Family Program staff will reach out to discuss Family Program dates and options.
What substance use disorder treatment programs does Origins Behavioral HealthCare offer?
We offer patient-driven care and programming tailored to your unique needs. Origins offers age-specific, gender-specific, and gender-separate treatment programs with both residential and outpatient services for adults. Program recommendations depend on individual assessments and include:
Do you treat mental disorders such as depression and bipolar disorder?
Yes. Many patients who enter treatment at Origins suffer from co-occurring mental disorders such as anxiety, depression, or bipolar disorders. These conditions must be treated alongside the disease of addiction. Origins provides additional services to these patients through psychiatric evaluation and medication management as well as counseling services and psychological group therapy.
Are there full-time psychiatrists and psychologists on staff?
Yes. Origins’ multidisciplinary team includes expert psychiatrists and psychologists who treat substance use and co-occurring disorders.
What does a typical day look like during the program at Origins?
A typical daily schedule may include psycho-education and elements of group and individual therapies which address addiction, wellness, spirituality, and psychology. Specialized topics may consist of co-occurring disorders or life issues such as grief and loss. Patients share meals together and have time for meditation and rest, and they also attend 12-Step meetings.
Does Origins offer 12-Step substance use disorder treatment?
Treatment at Origins is based on the 12-Step paradigm and is approached from a spiritual rather than a religious perspective. Our treatment plans are individualized to help patients approach the 12-Steps according to what their relationship is with a Higher Power of their own understanding.
How are Origins’ campuses structured?
Walkways connect buildings and residences in the open, college-like campus of Hanley Center at Origins in the tropical landscape of West Palm Beach, Florida. One-story structures provide easy accessibility for all mobility levels. A Resource Center with an auditorium, administrative offices, and meeting rooms anchors the South Florida campus on 45th Street. Patients have access to indoor and outdoor recreation and fitness facilities.
In Texas, Origins Recovery Center and Hannah’s House by Origins are both located in beautiful resort-grade settings on South Padre Island. With access to plenty of outdoor open spaces, these welcoming, gender-separate residences offer ample meeting areas, as well as comfortable spaces to relax quietly or commune with others. Origins’ men’s facility centers around a lush, tropical courtyard where patients also have access to a large pool. Hannah’s House for women is an intimate two-story facility nestled directly on the Laguna Madre Bay.
Private, elegantly appointed suites are “home” for our patients of Headwaters at Origins. This luxurious residence on Singer Island in Florida helps individuals rest, reflect, share, and stay focused on recovery.
Do you offer follow-up after discharge?
Each patient is discharged with a thorough continuing care plan through our Continuing Care Department. Our Alumni Services team members actively engage our alumni after they leave and are available to provide a lifetime of support. Our graduates are also welcome to participate in local and annual alumni events in both Texas and Florida.
How long has Origins been in existence?
Origins Behavioral HealthCare’s programs have been open for over 35 years.
Why would I choose Origins for substance use disorder treatment? What makes it different than other treatment centers?
Origins specializes in innovative and evidence-based, age-and gender-specific programs. We are pioneers of Older Adult treatment and were among one of the first facilities to offer gender-specific treatment. Our programs stand out in their capacity to treat both medical and mental co-occurring conditions while providing quality medical care related to detoxification and the complications of addiction.
