I Need Confidential Help with Addiction, But Is That Possible?

Published: August 6, 2016

Knowing that you need help with addiction is the first step toward sobriety. However, it’s common for individuals struggling with addiction to be concerned about their privacy and the confidentiality of their illness. Understand that confidentiality is incredibly important at Lakeview Health. Whether you’re calling for help with addiction, providing information for admission to a rehab program or undergoing therapy, confidentiality is assumed throughout the process.

Confidential Calls

One of the easiest ways that you can learn more about getting help for addiction and what kinds of rehab programs might be right is by calling. Admissions experts and rehab staff are available around the clock to pick up your call and offer you help. There’s no bad time to call, and no reason too small. Here are just some of the things that people might call to ask about, all of which will be kept confidential:

  • What kind of addictions are treated?
  • Do I need help for my addiction?
  • What kind of amenities are available?
  • How long does rehab take?

Whatever your question might be, you’ll get attention, support and help over the phone. Every call is confidential to protect the privacy of prospective patients.

Confidential Live Chat

If you would prefer to chat online, that’s another confidential option available to you. This can be an easier way to get relevant information as you begin planning to attend rehab and get help for your addiction. Staff are available 24/7 and are happy to chat with you about any issues you might have. While it can help if you provide information like the details of your addiction and where you are located, that isn’t mandatory, and you don’t need to share anything that you don’t want to.

Confidential Individual Therapy Sessions

A vital component of addiction treatment is individual therapy. Whether this is talk therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy or dialectical behavioral therapy, these sessions rely upon complete honesty and openness. Thankfully, patients should know that therapy falls under the guideline of doctor/patient privilege. Nothing you share in therapy, unless it has the potential to harm someone in the future, can be shared without your permission.

Semi-private Accommodation

Some prospective patients know that they need help with addiction, but the idea of living in a dormitory setting for the accountability is less than appealing. At Lakeview Health, semi-private accommodation is available. Plus, programs are available exclusively for women or men, which might help you feel more comfortable throughout treatment. If you have questions or reservations about getting help for addiction, call 866-704-7692 anytime, or head online to chat with staff at Lakeview Health. Confidentiality is a priority in communication, evaluation and treatment, and you can rest assured that your privacy is protected while you begin the journey to recovery.
