Thank you for visiting this section of our website dedicated to referring professionals seeking more information about Origins Recovery Centers.
The information below will hopefully provide you with some of the answers you seek. Please feel free to call 1-844-U-GET-WELL (844-843-8935) or email during regular business hours so that we can better assist you with more specific questions.
Note that the initial part of this section is designed to cater to the busy referring professional who needs answers quickly. We’ve listed the top five questions we generally receive from providers looking to refer to a drug and alcohol treatment center and have answered them briefly. The questions thereafter are answered in a more comprehensive manner.
Please always feel free to provide us with any feedback on how we might better cater to your needs. We are very aware that much of the success we have enjoyed in combating the pandemic of addiction is due to the professional reciprocity we enjoy with our network dedicated providers. We wish to foster effective and ongoing cooperation and collaboration.
Will I be given an email or call letting me know when my client arrived safely?
Yes, provided we have the necessary release forms signed by the patient.
Will I receive weekly emails or calls from the primary therapist updating me on treatment plan objectives and updates?
Yes, provided we have the necessary release forms signed by the patient. If you’d like to participate in the formation of their treatment plan, you may do so. This decision remains solely up to you.
Will I be sent a discharge summary and aftercare plan at the time of discharge?
Yes, provided we have the necessary release forms signed by the patient.
Will Origins send my client back to me?
Yes, absolutely. The best interests of our client are taken into full consideration when creating discharge plans.
Will I be involved by Origins if the client becomes “difficult” in treatment or threatens to leave treatment?
That remains entirely up to you. We certainly can exclude or include you, based upon your preference and provided we have the necessary release forms.
If after reading this section you still have questions, we encourage you to continue reading below especially the section entitled, “May I continue to participate within my patient’s treatment plan?” if the nature of your inquiry is related to your desire, or lack of desire, to be involved within your patient’s treatment plan while at Origins Recovery Centers.
Our goal is to take the best of both worlds in order to help a person recover from drug and alcohol addiction. We are always open to suggestions of additional, complimentary forms of treatment we might provide to those still suffering from drug and alcohol addiction. Focusing too much in either area is often at the detriment of the other. We believe that both a clinical and spiritual aspect much be present with the treatment equation in order for our clients to receive the maximal therapeutic benefit from their time on our campuses.
We have no particular religious affiliation, and we welcome both the ardent church-goer and the atheist/agnostic with equal tenacity. We are all brothers and sisters when united against drug and alcohol addiction. We have a strong basis within the traditions of 12-Step recovery while providing access to exceptional, evidenced-based clinical and pharmacological modalities.
Yes. Our staff is fully licensed and trained to treat co-occurring pathology. We have extensive experience and specialized competency to treat those addicts and alcoholics also suffering from sexual, thought and mood disorders, PTSD, eating disorders, anxiety, depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder among others.
All clients of Origins Recovery Centers undergo extensive psychological testing, including but not necessarily limited to the Substance Abuse Subtle Screening Inventory (SASSI), Minnesota Multhiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI2), Milan Multiaxial Clinical Inventory (MMCI2), and the PsychEval Personality Questionnaire (PEPQ). Additional, more rigorous testing may be necessary and is made available to Origins clients when indicated.
Our staff includes licensed chemical dependency counselors, psychotherapists, psychologists, an addiction medicine specialist and a psychiatrist. Under the expertise of these individuals, Origins will craft and individualize a plan of care for the dually-diagnosed that is fully integrated within their recovery curriculum so that all co-occurring disorders are treated concomitant with their chemical dependency.
Our staff is trained to identify any of our clients whose co-occurring disorders may require more intensive, hospital-based oversight. We work closely with local behavioral health centers and hospitals in order to stabilize and treat individuals whose mental health status requires an initial hospital stay.
Our observation is that often while in active addiction our clients will present with a whole host of various diagnoses which we will treat accordingly as needed. Once a period of sustained sobriety has been achieved in tandem with both therapeutic and psycho-pharmacological intervention, many dually diagnosed addicts and alcoholics experience significant progress.
Untreated alcoholism and drug addiction may manifest itself in very disturbing symptoms. It is not until the addict/alcoholic has experienced a period of sustained sobriety that it can be truly known whether or not such additional diagnoses are naturally present within the individual or just alcohol and drug induced. In the event of the former, we are prepared to provide all necessary medical oversight.
Whether or not you do, and to what extent you do, remains completely up to you. We are open to a complete transfer of care. However if you would like to remain firmly involved within the care of the individual you refer to us, we are very receptive to that approach and will do everything to foster just such cooperation. While of course we will need a full release signed by the Origins’ client in order to speak with you regarding them, it is left to your discretion as to the degree to which you remain involved in that individual’s care.
We do recognize that for some providers addicts and alcoholics can be an enormous clinical challenge. They can often exhaust you professionally and emotionally. If you have found yourself in just such a situation… it’s Ok. We’ll gladly take it from here. You determine the extent to which you continue to participate in the continued care of the client you refer to us. Whatever your decision rest assured that they are receiving the utmost in competent, qualified and compassionate care.
We participate with a number of third-party payers on both an in-network and out-of-network basis. The list of plans we participate in is frequently changing.
Unfortunately, many of our prospective, insured clients have plans with no allowance for drug and alcohol treatment. Payers often overlook the necessity of making chemical dependency treatment available to their subscribers despite the fact that the addict or alcoholic safely in recovery consumes an infinitesimally smaller amount of overall healthcare resources than one in active addiction.
An Origins’ Admission Specialist will collect the information necessary to verify your patient’s health benefits as to the extent they will cover our treatment services. We pre-authorize care and will inform them of any out-of-pocket expenses that they might incur. For patients without health benefits or those whose benefits will only cover a portion of treatment, we offer a number of financing options to help minimize the expense of treatment.
At any given time, we have a number of clients receiving partial or full scholarships. Origins believes that everyone is entitled to a recovery curriculum like ours regardless of their ability to pay. Clients accepted in such a capacity will need to display an exceptional degree of eagerness and willingness for addiction recovery in order to be candidates for a subsidized stay.
It varies greatly by individual. Our recommended length of stay is between 30 to 90 days. Long-term sobriety is intimately tied to length of stay, which is why we prefer to have our clients stay for the full 90 days, although we recognize that in some cases this will just not be possible due numerous reasons. In cases of the chronically relapsing patient, we often encourage an even longer time in our programs.
Quite often, the total amount of time spent under the aegis of our care will take the form of a mix of inpatient treatment, treatment step-down program, (“transitions program”) and supervised living within our system of sober houses. From there, we offer an extended monitoring and accountability program (MAP) which can continue as long as both the patient and Origins Recovery Centers’ teams perceive a therapeutic benefit for ongoing professional supervision.
