Frequently Asked questions

  • What is the admission process like? How do I admit myself?

    Call us at 1-866-962-6200.

    It’s very simple. You will be asked a series of questions about your substance use, and our professional Intake Coordinator will guide you through an assessment to determine the appropriate level of care.

  • Do I have to tell my employer I'm in treatment?

    It’s up to the client to determine what should or should not be shared with an employer. State laws vary regarding what must be disclosed to employers. There is no federal law that requires you to tell your employer any information regarding your treatment. There are also various protections under the Family Medical Leave Act. Check and see if your employer offers an Employee Assistance Program. These programs can be very helpful (no-automatic notification if you file for disability).

  • What if my loved one does not want to go to treatment?

    We have skilled interventionists who can help. For more information, call us at 1-866-962-6200.

  • If I am a referring professional, will I be involved in the process?

    You will be involved in the process, as long as the client signs an authorization to release information.

  • Will I be able to bring my cell phone and/or laptop?

    You may bring a cell phone and laptop, but it will be kept away. Cell phones and laptops are distractions to the therapeutic process and can also compromise patient confidentiality. ATSI has phones available for use when clients are not participating in treatment. In addition, clients are permitted to use their cell phones and laptops for specified periods of time at later levels of care when therapists feel it appropriate.

  • What if I have to attend to work matters or business obligations while in treatment?

    We will work with you to ensure you have the proper access and resources.

  • Do you follow a 12-step model?

    The 12-step process is utilized in some of our programs. However, we are not a 12-step treatment center. We believe the 12 steps and programs such as AA and NA are effective for many, but not all. We incorporate the 12 steps during treatment, but we also focus on many other therapeutic components.

  • What is the length of treatment?

    Unlike many other treatment centers, we do not have a cookie-cutter time frame. There is no predetermined length of treatment, as every individual progresses differently. However, research shows the longer someone stays engaged in treatment, the better the chances of long-term success.

  • What are the qualifications of your counselors?

    All of our counselors and therapists hold at least a Masters Degree, i.e. Masters in Social Work. Or, they are Licensed Mental Health Counselors, PHD, or Psyd. In addition to being highly credentialed, our counselors and therapists are highly experienced, highly trained and dedicated to our clients and the field of addiction recovery.

  • Can my family members visit me in treatment?

    Yes. We wholeheartedly believe in the importance of including loved ones in the recovery process. Our Treatment Coordinators maintain open lines of communication with your family members. They also provide visitation schedules and resources for family treatment.

Didn’t find the answer?

Addiction has become one of the most serious problems in the world. It has been estimated that genetic factors contribute to 40%–60% of the vulnerability to drug addiction, and environmental factors provide the remainder. What are the genes and pathways underlying addiction? Is there a common molecular network underlying addiction to different abusive substances? Is there any network property that may explain the long-lived and often irreversible molecular and structural changes after addiction? These important questions were traditionally studied experimentally. The explosion of genomic and proteomic data in recent years both enabled and necessitated bioinformatic studies of addiction.
