Rehab Recovery Communications

While it is perfectly normal to want to constantly hear that your loved one is doing fine; in rehab recovery treatment, protocols dictate controlled communications. Of course, pursuant to HIPPA rules and allowing time for detox and or starting rehab recovery programs first, communications may require a little patience.

Your treatment teams know that after spending months or even years constantly worrying, you are likely anxious to speak with your family member. However, both sides need to understand what healthy communication in rehab recovery treatment looks like. Here’s what to expect from us and from your loved one.

Speaking with a loved one

Speaking every day is not healthy. This generally leads to a serious distraction to clients engaging themselves in the therapy atmosphere. Clients ought to develop their own views and deal with exposed feelings (like guilt for harming their family members). Patients are here to converse with skilled therapists and peers to create supportive networks to reach the source of their addiction and mental health problems.

Rest assured, clients have access to call at least several times a week. Please keep in mind, that if you don’t hear from them, they are grown-ups. Meaning, they don’t “have” to phone you.

Sometimes, clients may communicate a wish to quit or leave early at some juncture in their rehab recovery treatment. This is a worrisome sign. Throughout their addiction clients have learned to find excuses and ways to manipulate the situation to get them using again. Please be forewarned that clients sometimes communicate a biased one-sided story. Rather than accepting their story immediately, we urge families to first collect and weigh the facts. First, discuss the matter with the assigned therapist and gain a more precise view of what is most suitable and in the true best interests of your family member. Please do not fall prey to how “bad” things are, or that their rehab recovery is progressing slowly. Rather, make sure you do not enable them but urge them to see their rehab recovery treatment through. Quitting early without an immediate program for ongoing rehab recovery treatment can quickly result in relapse.

Family members may reach out to the rehab recovery facility at any time. But please keep in mind you will not be instantly connected with your loved one. Even in emergency situations, therapist involvements and approvals help assure things are conveyed and arranged in the best possible ways.

Speaking with the rehab recovery facility

HIPPA regulations dictate what and or if we can share private patient records and other health information with family members. Where communication is lax on the part of clients and or your part, clients may not have approved a release or appointed someone as the primary contact. The therapist is only allowed to connect with the primary contact listed. This is the family representative that should keep all other family members updated.

Clients may revoke their consent at any time. This generally means clients desire to keep private noteworthy details from you. This usually is a bad sign. Rest assured, we will do our best to persuade clients to keep communication forthcoming. As frustrating as it may be clients regulate the transmission of their rehab recovery treatment records and updates (by law).

The client-therapist will endeavor to contact you weekly for any news and rehab recovery progression updates. Of course, that depends on client approval and signed HIPPA release. If you do not hear from the therapist after a full week, please call the facility. Of course, in order to deliver the highest level of care for each patient, therapists are unable to be on extended long calls with families. Please understand that the therapist’s time is required for clients first and foremost.

No news is good news.  Please know that families are be informed if a client is admitted to a hospital or leaves rehab recovery treatment against medical advice. Please remember that when you do not hear from us, it just means they’re engaging in the rehab recovery treatment process.
