A common worry among many patients and their families is how to finance treatment.
Though every insurance company is different, at Regions, we’re committed to finding our patients the most affordable quality care available.
Even if insurance or financial situations restrict treatment at Regions, we help patients navigate the financial process to get the care they need.
Though schedules can vary, a typical day in treatment consists of group and individual therapy sessions with time allotted for meals, snacks and alternating outside time for smokers and non-smokers. The daily schedule is designed to give each patient the flexibility and resources to pursue healing at their own pace.
Your confidentiality and privacy are of the utmost importance to us.
There are several daily times for outdoor smoke breaks. Non smokers are also allotted outdoor smoke breaks separate from the smokers.
