What about insurance? How does that work?

Gallus Detox Centers accepts insurance. We work with you to verify your coverage before admission and upon your discharge billing your insurance company for services rendered.

  • Call us so that we can get all your insurance information, and we will check with your insurance company for the appropriate health insurance coverage.
  • If you have benefits for treatment at Gallus Detox Centers, we will then do an assessment with you (preferably prior to admission) and then provide the needed information necessary to your insurance company.
  • Gallus Detox Centers does not guarantee reimbursement for your insurance company (even if the treatment had been authorized) but will provide you with as much support and assistance as possible in receiving reimbursement from your insurance company.

My loved one seems so groggy and “out of it.” How long is will detox take?

We want to assure you that the Gallus Detox Centers team is providing your loved one with the best possible care. We can have the nurse working directly with your loved one call you and give you an update on their status. They can answer any other questions you might have about the detoxification process.

What happens after the detox period?

It is highly recommended that after detox, patients transition immediately into some type of treatment setting. This is to continue on in their recovery process. In fact, studies have shown that relapse among those who return to their normal lives immediately following detox is high, upwards of 80 to 90 percent!

Gallus Detox Centers has a number of inpatient addiction treatment centers we work with. They’re in our partner network  nationwide. This lets us work with you directly to customize the best treatment setting that meets your specific needs.

What could possibly happen if someone chooses to detox themselves “cold turkey” and not utilize Gallus Detox Centers or any other facility?

It all depends on the individual, the substance used and in what quantities. This is a difficult question to answer without knowing more information. We can say that detoxing from drugs such as alcohol or benzodiazepines (i.e., Valium, Xanax, Klonopin, etc.) may pose potentially life-threatening risks.

How available is my family member’s counselor when I have questions or need to talk about what’s going on? Or should I contact someone else with questions?

Please feel free to always contact Gallus Detox Centers for any questions or concerns you might have about your family member. Our licensed substance abuse counselors typically call families once a week to update them on a person’s status and well-being. If you choose to contact the licensed substance abuse counselor, please remember that they like to return calls at the end of the day.

What do I need to bring with me during my stay at Gallus Detox Centers?

Your admissions advisor will email you a list of you can and cannot bring. We want you to be comfortable during your stay. Bring sweatpants, gym shorts, comfortable shirts and so on. You will be in compassionate hands. If by some chance you happen to need something which you forgot at home, don’t worry. Rest assured that we will do what is needed to keep you comfortable.

If you have any more questions we didn’t answer here, please call 888.228.9114.
