What to Look for When Selecting a Treatment Center in Alexandria

The Right Program

A detailed interview and assessment process with a clinical professional. Look for an organization that assesses physical and mental health, as well as qualifications for your loved one’s specific needs. Make sure the organization you’re considering has skilled experience with the the drawbacks your loved on is facing.

If the organization isn’t right for your substance abuse treatment, ask if they have referrals for a more appropriate fit.

Professional Team

Look for a licensed, experienced organization that focuses on a team-oriented approach, working together to support each client and their family. Find a team that includes individual and family therapists, substance abuse counselors, psychiatrists, and dietitians.

highly credentialed team taking a holistic approach to care is critical to achieving successful outcomes from substance abuse and addiction treatments.


An organization that focuses on participant safety, both physical and emotional. Many people will discover through the treatment process that abstinence from all substances is the best choice for them. Through this journey, it is important to support participants in staying safe and reducing harm.

Find a support system you trust to aid your substance abuse and addiction treatment.

Strengths Based

An approach that focuses on what is working and nurtures those activities, patterns, and behaviors to encourage health and vibrancy.

Evidence-based Care

An organization that draws on research and time-tested practices for the best possible outcome. Research or ask about the therapy methods they use in addition treatment.

Family Oriented

Any large life challenge always affects and is impacted by the surrounding system. Find an organization that supports and integrates the whole family. No one walks the road to recovery alone.

An Individualized Program

An organization that tailors the experience to the individual and their unique needs. Find a team that sees you or your loved one as a person and creates a support program based on what is needed. True change from substance abuse and addiction treatment comes from authentic connection and genuine investment.

Mental Health and Trauma Training

Drug abuse and addiction generally co-occur with a mental health or trauma experience. It is important that a treatment program has the ability to treat not only substance abuse but also underlying mental health concerns and trauma.

Ideally, a program would have a psychiatrist on staff, and staff trained in trauma-informed care. A good support system believes recovery and healing are two sides of the same coin, and both are necessary for long-lasting success.

Questions About Rehab Treatment?

Our goal is to provide you with the most helpful information. Please reach out to us if you have any additional questions at (888) 850-1890. We are here to help in any way we can.

Knowing what level of care would be best for you is tricky! If you experience withdrawal symptoms when you try to stop substance abuse, this is usually a sign that addiction therapy could be beneficial.

Here at Sandstone Care, we specialize in developing diverse addiction treatment programs that cater to a variety of situations. However, the most effective way to determine if outpatient treatment is the right path for you is to consult with a healthcare professional. Our dedicated admissions team is always available for a conversation. They can provide advice and guide you on your next steps.

No matter what your short-term or long-term goals are, don’t hesitate to reach out – we’re here to help clarify your options and navigate your journey toward recovery. Whether you need inpatient treatment, residential treatment, or outpatient care, we would be happy to speak with you and advise you on your next steps.

Every person that Sandstone Care treats are different. While some outpatient rehabilitation centers are one-size-fits-all, Sandstone Care tailors treatment to meet our client’s specific needs. For example, adolescent patients may require different treatment services than young adults. The average length of treatment is 2 – 12 weeks. Some of the factors that impact the length of treatment are:

  • What substances the client is in addiction recovery from (for example, alcohol addiction)
  • How long the client has been drinking or using drugs
  • The frequency that the client has been drinking or using drugs
  • If the client would benefit from behavioral therapy
  • Overall physical and mental health of the client
  • If medication management will be necessary for drug abuse detoxification
  • Underlying health conditions or mental health issues

Once your substance abuse treatment programming is complete, our Discharge Planners will sit with you for an evaluation to discuss your aftercare options.

Yes! Please contact our admissions team to complete an Insurance Verification to see if we accept your health insurance. If we do not, we may be able to provide you with referrals to find treatment, even if it’s not with us. Please note that we do not accept Medicare or Medicaid.

While, yes, we are able to prescribe medications, we acknowledge that not all situations call for medication-assisted treatment. Our medical team will evaluate your circumstances and determine what type of treatment is appropriate for you.

Loved ones play a vital role in the overall wellness of each individual served. Individual family therapy sessions are offered bi-weekly to examine the role the family plays in creating new patterns of behavioral health and changing old behavior that reinforced negative behaviors. 

Connection is key in recovery. Our case management team will work with you and your family to find the best way to foster that connection. Our program also utilizes weekly Multi-Family psychotherapy groups to reinforce new skills being learned in groups, as well as a source of support and guidance during the rehabilitative care process.
