We understand the initial phone call can be difficult to make. Once you take that step, however, our admissions team is devoted to ensuring a seamless intake process. This comprises a confidential pre-admission assessment to collect all required medical and clinical information. We will personally answer your questions regarding transportation information and financial arrangements, as well as assist with insurance verifications. Our team will guide you every step of the way.
The next step is to determine the best course of treatment and the duration of your stay at Alina Lodge. This will involve a full medical history as well as a physical.
The Importance of Medically-Supervised Detox
Prospective students who are actively using substances will also go through full medically-supervised detoxification at one of the detox facilities we work closely with before they begin our long-term residential treatment program in earnest.
Detoxification is the first step toward recovery. Alina Lodge has trusted detox partners and will refer to an appropriate center to ensure a thorough assessment to ensure the individual safely overcomes the physical effects of alcohol and withdrawal. At that time, an opportunity to address medical concerns and begin the process of developing a personalized therapeutic relationship will begin.
When a student has completed detox, they are then ready to come to Alina Lodge to begin the path of recovery and rehabilitation. Our staff will help with interventionists, detox, primary treatment, and aftercare, providing the full continuum of care for you and your loved one.
Our admissions team will help you take the first step on the path to residential addiction treatment and long-term recovery.

Length Of Stay
The actual length of stay is based on an individual’s progress in treatment, and so is customized to meet the unique needs of each of our students.
All of our students come to us with different needs and problems. Therefore, each student’s length of stay is based on their progress towards specific clinical goals. We believe in the tincture of time as it allows:
- Proper restoration of brain function and healing of the nervous system
- The body to become truly chemically free
- The mind a chance to develop new habits
- The practice of new behavioral skills
- The replacement of unhealthy people, places, and things with healthy ones
- The creation of an effective support system
- Family relationships to begin a healing process
- In-depth 12-step programming and healthy social living guided by spiritual principles
You can free yourself from drugs and alcohol. You just need to take the first step.
