After completing 40 days of inpatient treatment for heroine addiction, our son interviewed and was accepted to BTSR. He resided there for 5 very positive, growing and worthwhile months. He learned to appreciate and thrive in the structured, caring and well-managed environment. He had the camaraderie, guidance, love and support that are so crucial to progression and healing. We were fortunate to visit him and see the beautiful environment, meet the strong and capable manager, play with the loving service dogs and feel the positive energy of the home and surroundings. We were thoroughly impressed and extremely grateful that such a place was available to help our family rebuild our lives and relationships. The owner and manager have been (and continue to be) genuine, caring resources to us - full of wisdom, understanding, sincere hope – and respect for our boundaries. Our son is no longer at BTSR, but continues to thrive with the solid base and life skills he regained at BTSR, as well as the ongoing love and support of the owner, manager and rewarding friendships and strong recovery community in the area. Our son speaks very highly of his experience at BTSR and is thankful to all involved as he progresses on his journey. We are immensely appreciative and grateful.Brooke and John Z.

Tips & Advices
If you don't have insurance, you may be able to find outpatient programs like Narcotics Anonymous that offer counseling and meetings for patients at no cost.
Some facilities accept health insurance like United Healthcare, BlueCross BlueShield, Cigna, Humana and Medicaid. Many carriers support in-state assessment, detox and outpatient treatment. Some also partially cover residential or inpatient treatment. Because drug addiction is considered a disease, major health insurance providers must treat it like any other chronic condition that requires medical treatment. Be sure to inquire about co-pays and deductibles so you don't receive a surprise bill months after you start a program.
Yes. Some treatment programs promote quick sobriety through seemingly impossible means, such as herbal supplements or religious affiliation. Be wary of questionable claims like, "Shake your drug addiction in one week!" If the advertising sounds too good to be true, the program could potentially be a scam. Instead, look for organizations that include approval and certification from real doctors and health care providers.
Yes. Attending a program that is specific to your drug of choice will make your treatment much more likely to be impactful and successful.  Some provide certain users with medications like Valium and Xanax to counteract symptoms of distress associated with alcohol or drug withdrawals. You may not want to attend such programs if you fear that you may instead become addicted to these substances.
Yes. A physician can determine how severe your addiction is, which will help you decide if you want to try inpatient or outpatient treatment. He or she can also consider any withstanding health issues such as psychiatric conditions that should be factored into your decision. Next, check out facilities and programs that offer treatment for the substances that you abuse.
