Research has shown it takes at least 30 days to change a behavior. Every client is different and the recommended length of stay depends on medical necessity and clients’ progress during treatment. Many of our clients extend treatment beyond the initial 30 days, between 45 and 120 days. Lifetime substance abuse recovery is highly correlated to treatment stays of 90 days or more.

Summit Estate Recovery Center offers medically-assisted detoxification, intensive inpatient treatment with graduated phases of care, intensive outpatient treatment, and Continuing Care. We provide each client with an individualized treatment plan based on his or her specific needs. Additionally, our certified professionals are experts at helping clients with co-occurring disorders, such as a depression and anxiety, which often present with primary substance abuse addiction. Family members play a vital role in your recovery process and are encouraged to participate in our Family Program. Our dedication to providing continued follow-up with our clients extends beyond graduation. We are always here for you.

Admission starts with a call to our team at (866) 569-9391. A conversation with our Intake Coordinator will help determine which program track is best suited to your situation. If you will be using insurance, we will ask for plan information at that time to check your policy benefits. If intensive inpatient treatment is required, we will immediately begin to make arrangements to admit you to our facility. The actual date of admission may be dependent on space availability. However, we make every effort to accommodate your needs as quickly as possible. If a space is not immediately available, we can hold the next bed with a minimal fee, which will apply to your admission cost. Residential admission is conducted Monday through Friday, unless there are extenuating circumstances and arrangements have been made in advance. Outpatient admission is completed Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday and may be available the same day as your inquiry. If you will be paying privately, our Intake Coordinator will discuss cost and methods of payment with you. If you will be using insurance, and your benefits have been verified, you will speak to a member of our insurance authorization team to complete an in-depth phone evaluation prior to admission.
