What the Government Wants You To Know Before Purchasing Private Drug Rehab:
Fees and Refunds
The following information is adapted from the Residential Treatment for Teens page of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission's * (FTC) Consumer Information website. The following question is equally appropriate to ask a Canadian private treatment provider for adults:
What are the costs? What do they cover? What is your refund policy if the program doesn't work out?
FTC: "Private residential treatment programs often charge hundreds of dollars per day. While health insurance sometimes may pay a limited amount, for the most part, the client's family is responsible for paying the fees and bills."
A refundable deposit of $1000 is required to hold a bed in the event that there is a wait list and will be applied towards the cost of treatment upon admission.
The Detox Only Program includes travel assistance (see below for details), medical detoxification, routine nursing consultations, the Family & Couples Program, routine nursing consultations and psycho-education group.
The Addiction Program includes all goods and services provided in the Detox Only Program as well as psychiatric assessment, counselling (group and individual), Online Support Program, wellness therapies (massage therapy, ozone therapy), arts and craft materials, and assigned reading materials.
The Alumni Program includes all goods and services provided in the Addiction Program but does not include travel assistance in Vancouver or Comox nor does it include medical detoxification (available for an additional $200 per night). Alumni Program participants must first complete the Addiction or Trauma Program.
The Trauma Program includes all goods and services provided in the Addiction Program and the Detox Only Program as well as enhanced psychiatric services, trauma counselling and complementary trauma therapies (EMDR, neurofeedback, hypnotherapy and active meditation, therapeutic exercise and therapeutic recreation).
All programs include pick up/return to the Powell River airport or ferry terminal upon arrival/discharge, accommodation, meals, scheduled recreational activities, use of the business centre, use of the indoor pool and fitness centre, free laundry soap and use of laundry facilities.
Programs do not include travel expenses to and from a client's place of residence to the Powell River airport or ferry terminal, dental work, prescription drugs, or personal items such as toothpaste, shaving cream, deodorant, etc.
(not included in the Alumni Program fee) To facilitate Addiction Program, Trauma Program or Detox Only Program clients arriving at Vancouver International Airport or Comox Valley Airport, Sunshine Coast Health Center offers free travel assistance. Clients need not worry about luggage and shuttling between terminals: a staff member will be there to ensure their trip is hassle-free.
For more information on scheduled group activities, individual activities including recreational activities please visit the Treatment Schedule page.
Sunshine Coast Health Center accepts cheque or money order issued by a Canadian bank, wire transfer, Visa, Mastercard and American Express. For further info, please feel free to contact Admissions toll free 1.866.487.9010.
Clients wishing to extend their stay from one program duration to another may do so without penalty. For example, a client who has originally enrolled in the 30-day Addiction Program may extend to the 42-day Addiction Program by paying the difference in cost. No penalty will be assessed for clients choosing to start their treatment in a program of shorter duration.
Similarly, clients wishing to change programs may do so without penalty. For example, a client who has originally enrolled in the Detox Only Program may change to the 30-day Addiction Program by paying the difference in cost. Again, no penalty will be assessed for clients choosing to start their treatment in the Detox Only Program.
