At SpringBoard Recovery, we frequently work with people from Columbus, Ohio to provide them alcohol and drug rehab services. Even though we are located in Arizona, people from Columbus often see that as a benefit. They get the opportunity to get treatment in a place that is far away from their old triggers, people they used with and other temptations to use. We provide abstinence-based drug and alcohol treatment as well as recovery housing. We are in great standing with the Better Business Bureau and we are accredited with The Joint Commission. SpringBoard Recovery is in-network with many of the top health insurance providers in Ohio as well.

“At SpringBoard Recovery, we know who we are. We know what we are extremely good at, and that is treating people with substance use disorders – comprehensively and successfully. In doing so, we never lose sight of the actual person we are helping, or the personal hopes and aspirations they have for a future completely free from substance use. It’s passion with purpose, and it’s the reason we exist.”

– Robert Castan, CEO, SpringBoard Recovery

Traveling From Columbus, Ohio to Arizona for Rehab at SpringBoard Recovery

Some people feel good about their decision to go to rehab close to where they live. But that is not the case for everyone. Many are now choosing to travel for rehab, and they list several reasons for this, including:

  • Having health insurance that is not in-network with any of the local providers.
  • Working at a public job and wanting to preserve their privacy by going to rehab out of town or even out of state.
  • Viewing rehab as more of a getaway that will allow them to focus on recovering.
  • Getting away from triggers, people and places that might lead to a relapse.
  • Wanting to relocate because their home environment is dangerous or abusive, or because they want a fresh start.

All of these reasons are valid, and at SpringBoard Recovery, we welcome people from Columbus, Ohio. We are located in Scottsdale, Arizona, which provides scenic views and a tranquil atmosphere for recovery.

Will Health Insurance Plans Cover Rehab?

Yes, health insurance providers are required to provide benefits for addiction treatment to their customers. This was changed when the Affordable Care Act was signed into law in 2010. Also, health insurance will cover rehab out of state as well.

At SpringBoard Recovery, we have worked hard to partner with many of the best health insurance providers in Ohio. Because we are in-network with so many of them, we are able to provide our services to many people in Columbus. We will even verify benefits for our clients ahead of time so they know exactly what their out-of-pocket costs will be.

What to Expect During Drug and Alcohol Rehab

It is normal for people to feel nervous about going to alcohol and drug rehab. But it can be helpful to know what to expect. Not all types of rehabilitation programs are appropriate for everyone, and it is important for people to get the type of help that is right for them.

At SpringBoard Recovery, we always provide a professional recommendation for clients who come to us seeking our services. That way, they know that they are getting the correct level of care.

Detox Programs in Columbus, Ohio

Going through drug and alcohol detox is necessary for some drugs, including benzodiazepines, alcohol, opioids and stimulants. When these drugs are stopped, they can result in serious complications that can be dangerous, or even fatal. It is never a good idea to stop using any type of drug without talking with a professional first. Detoxing may be needed in order to do so safely.

There are several options for detox available, including:

Columbus, OH Inpatient and Long-Term Rehabilitation Centers

A lot of people need a higher level of care in order to successfully recover from drug and alcohol addiction. Inpatient rehab offers people the opportunity to get the help they need when they decide to stop using. It requires a 28-day stay at a facility while going through detox and receiving various types of therapy.

Long-term rehab is another option that is available to some people. It may be needed for people who have been addicts for a long time, have a history of relapsing, or who have not done well with 28-day programs. Their patients can stay for several months while they get the help they need.

Outpatient Addiction Treatment in Columbus

Outpatient rehab programs are also available in Columbus, Ohio. This level of care can work well for some people provided that they begin the right type of program. For example, they may not get enough support in an environment that only offers short therapy sessions a few times a week. But something more intensive like an IOP or PHP may provide them with the help they need.

The outpatient programs in Columbus include:

Additional Recovery Options

There are also a few other ways for people to get support during addiction recovery. Sober living homes or recovery housing offers safe places for people to live as they work through their substance abuse treatment programs. Residents are required to follow all house rules, attend treatment faithfully and may need to pay rent unless it is covered by health insurance.

12-Step programs and other support groups are also available in Columbus. These important resources provide peer support through regular meetings and events. In Columbus, there are:
