women using drugs intravenously, pregnant women not using intravenously and
all other intravenous drug users. Admission is subject to insurance verification and aftercare considerations.

What is the average length of stay?
Each individual's length of stay in treatment is determined by medical necessity. Medical necessity is defined by our doctors and psychiatrist as services or items reasonable and necessary for the diagnosis or treatment of illness. Each length of stay is dependent upon a review of each case.
What should I expect if I am admitted to Eagleville Hospital?
After a thorough assessment of your past and present biological, psychological, social and addiction background, an individualized treatment plan will be created to address needs that may interfere with your ability to maintain sobriety. The main modality of treatment is group therapy, although individual sessions occur once per week. We will work with your available and potential resources to assure that you have the best aftercare plan available to continue achieving your goals and plans in recovery.

What can I do as a family member or loved one of a person with a
co-occurring or substance use disorder?
While you can support your loved one while they are in treatment and throughout their recovery process, it is often the best approach for you to learn to also take care of yourself
as substance use disorders not only affect the person using but also their family and loved ones as well.
