Same-Day Rehab Admittance

Same-day rehab admittance might be necessary when you or your loved one is in a crisis. A crisis can look like many different things. Maybe you or your loved one just relapsed or maybe you have been slowly consumed by your addiction to the point you need help right now. Let’s say your loved one just agreed to be admitted into a rehab facility, but you are afraid that tomorrow they will change their mind. You need to get your loved one into rehab today before they overdose on their drug or decide they don’t want help anymore.

According to an article published in the Journal of Drug Issues, the waiting period to get into a rehab program is a common barrier for those seeking treatment. The longer a person who is addicted to drugs or alcohol has to wait to be admitted to treatment, the more likely they are to not follow through with treatment. Many substance users contact a rehab facility when they are in crisis and need immediate drug rehab. Therefore, being placed on a waiting list raises second thoughts about the facility’s willingness and their capacity for treatment services to provide the support they need. Additionally, being placed on a waiting list also increases a person’s chances of criminal justice involvement, decreases their motivation to get treatment, and decreases their overall functioning.

An article published in the Journal of Behavioral Health Services and Research found that facilities that are able to resolve barriers for a person wishing to enter substance use disorder treatment, such as minimizing wait times, not only experience lower levels of patient attrition but also higher levels of patient satisfaction and success. With that being said, a lot of rehab clinics have redesigned their intake procedures to determine the fastest way to get a person into treatment and provide patients with individualized treatment plans. This has resulted in many rehab programs now being able to offer same day and next day admissions.

Entering Same Day Detox

After you have contacted a same-day rehab facility and have gathered all your or your loved one’s treatment information you should consider notifying friends, family, and your employer of your decision to enter treatment. This is important because friends and family might need to take time off of their work or school to help you. The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) enables individuals to have up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave to care for themselves of their loved ones who are in drug rehab. This act enables you to keep your job after returning from your treatment because it prohibits employers from firing you while you are on leave getting treatment for your medical condition. Additionally, individuals can also take FMLA leave to care for a loved one in drug rehab.
