“Where Recovery Begins”

Call Us Today! 1-866-255-3350

We are committed to providing patients with dignity and respect while treating the disease of addiction.


Q: What am I going to do all day during detox?
A: Self-Recovery is very structured program. Clients will attend daily classes to learn coping skills, the disease concept of addiction, and the 12-Steps of Recovery. Clients will also meet with Certified Addiction Counselors for individual counseling.

Q: Am I allowed to smoke in your facilities?
A: Yes! We feel that it is important to keep our patients as calm as possible during their detox period. We have a designated area where clients are allowed to smoke throughout the day.  Clients will be supervised while on smoke breaks. Cigarettes and cigarette lighters will be taken up on arrival and kept in the technician’s office.

Q: Will I have my own room at Self-Recovery?
A: Self-Recovery offers a variety of private and semi-private rooms.  All of our rooms have a private bathroom for the patient’s utmost convenience and privacy.

Q: What can I bring with me to Self-Recovery?
A: A person wishing to enter the Self-Recovery program should bring the following:

  • Comfortable clothes (no clothing with alcohol/drug related logos, “sexy” attire, lingerie, swimsuits, etc.) for 7-10 days
  • Personal hygiene items
  • 12 Step Book, Bible, etc. (optional)
  • Cigarettes and lighter (optional)

Q: Will I need to bring money with me to Self-Recovery?
A: A client may bring extra money for our soda machine; however we will provide decaffeinated beverages at all meals and snacks.

Q: Will I be allowed to use my cell phone? Will I need to bring a calling card?
A: Self-Recovery will allow 2 phone calls during your stay.  No calling card is necessary.  Clients’ cell phones will be taken up at admission and kept in a secure place in our technician’s office.  Cell phones will not be released back to the patient until the client is dismissed from our program.

Q: Is visitation allowed?
A: As everyone doesn’t have good family support, we feel that visitation on a case-by-case basis is a must to ensure our patient safety and confidentiality.  Visitation must be prearranged, supervised, and pre-approved by the counselor and client.

Q: Are we a rehabilitation facility?
A: Self-Recovery is a 7-10 day medical detoxification program.  We do provide classes and individual therapy while in our program.  Certified Addiction Counselors will work with the patient to set up a Master Treatment Plan and to discuss further treatment options.  Each client will have a psychosocial assessment performed on them while they are here.

Q: Where will I go from here?
A: Once admitted, clients will meet with their counselor to discuss treatment options. Treatment options are available depending on bed availability, financial arrangements, and sincerity of the patient seeking treatment. We refer to a number of residential living facilities, state-funded facilities, outpatient programs, crisis residential programs, and hospitals in Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, Kentucky, Louisiana, and Florida for our patients in Alabama.

Q: What kind of insurance do you take?
A: Self-Recovery accepts most major insurances. Please feel free to contact our admissions office at our toll-free number: 866-255-3350, for specific questions regarding your insurance policy.

Q: Is your facility coed?
A: Self recovery offers services for both men and women over the age of 18.

Q: What do I need to do in order to come in?
A: Self-Recovery strives to make the admission process as easy as possible. The potential client, a representative, medical professional, or other referral source can call our toll free number (866-255-3350) and our intake coordinator will perform a phone assessment and verify insurance or make financial arrangements. This process usually takes approximately 10 minutes.

Q: Does Self-Recovery use Suboxone or Methadone to detox?
A: NO! No narcotics are given in the Self-Recovery program.
