Admissions process

When you call, one of our intake support team members will be there to listen, answer your questions, and gather basic information about you. Next, the intake team member will conduct an assessment over the phone to determine the appropriate level of care and length of stay for your situation. We will then offer our recommendations for the best solution(s) to suit the specific circumstances of you and your family.

We will set up the details for your arrival at Enterhealth Ranch. There is no formula or pattern we follow for designing your treatment program – this is all about what it takes to get you through recovery. This includes recommendations for the involvement of your family or anyone in your network of support.

Payment information

Our goal is to provide care that is second to none so we can help more people find a fulfilling life in recovery. Our Admissions team works with several different insurance companies to review costs and payment options. When insurance coverage doesn’t apply, we help patients and families find financing and payment options to make treatment more affordable. Financing for treatment may be available through SmartHealth PayCard.

The Enterhealth Inpatient Experience

For each residential patient, our team of board-certified, addiction-trained physicians, psychiatrists, psychologists, and Masters-/PhD-level therapists conduct a thorough medical and psychological assessment that identifies the severity of the disease as well as any co-occurring psychiatric conditions such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and chronic pain syndromes.

Based on these comprehensive assessments, our team will develop a personalized treatment plan for each patient and any applicable family member(s). The Enterhealth Ranch inpatient experience is structured and organized around these individualized treatment programs and designed to minimize stress and provide the safest and most supportive environment for healing and recovery.

Because each treatment plan is unique, the times at which you receive one-on-one therapy and medical care may vary. However, group activities can be expected to follow a set schedule for everyone.

A typical day and week

Weekdays begin early, starting with time for personal activities before breakfast. Patients complete a daily self-report and attend a didactic group until lunch.

Afternoons feature a variety of classes, small groups, yoga, spiritual classes and other educational offerings, followed by time for recreational activities such as swimming, gym use, and others.

The evening begins with dinner and time to use the phone to keep in touch with family and business needs. Support meetings such as AA and SMART Recovery are the final activities before leisure time and sleep.

Weekends follow a similar structure, but with time for family visitation and recreation added in, as well as fewer classes. Group family therapy takes place every Sunday for families who wish to participate.

Our schedule is designed to encourage healthy habits that are intended to become routine once you return home. Maintaining a reasonable bedtime allows for a good night’s sleep, which helps the brain and body recover at night and naturally increases alertness and focus during the day.

Nutritious meals and snacks, coupled with an active lifestyle, will keep you feeling great for years to come. With everyone at the Ranch maintaining the same great habits together, these positive changes soon become second nature.

Length of stay

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), outcomes for residential or outpatient treatment programs are more successful when an individual participates for 90 days or more. NIDA recommends even longer-term treatment to maintain sobriety, but acknowledges that treatment of any length is a step in the right direction.

The first step, detox, may take between 3 and 14 days, and is widely variable based on the abused substance type. The length of detox can affect the total length of stay needed. Detox alone is not considered treatment; you need to be medically stable, safe and comfortable in order to participate in therapies and treatments at Enterhealth Ranch.

We know that time is one of the greatest assets your brain can use to heal. While your treatment plan will be unique, we recommend a minimum stay of 45 days to make lasting improvement.

A wide range of effective therapies

Individual psychological and behavioral therapy is a main component of each patient’s stay.

Other therapies we offer include:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
  • Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT)
  • Magnetic e-Resonance Therapy (MeRT)
  • Neuro-biofeedback Treatment
  • Motivational Interviewing
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing
  • Brief Interventions
  • Relapse Prevention
  • Behavioral Marital Therapy
  • Adjunctive Pharmacotherapy
  • Community Reinforcement
  • Contingency Management

Family members can also receive treatment – not just education – to address unhealthy coping skills and other problems related to the root of the addiction.

Frequently Asked Questions

We want to answer all of your questions so that you’ll have confidence in selecting Enterhealth to help you and your family maintain a sustained recovery. Below are some of the questions we answer most, but if you have other questions, please call us any time at 1.800.388.4601.

What will my costs be for treatment?

Every treatment plan is different. Call 1.800.388.4601 and our Intake team will help you determine what your treatment will include and how much it will cost.

Do you take insurance?

We work with most major insurance companies on an out-of-network basis to maximize treatment benefits for our patients.

While Enterhealth has no control over the outcome of insurance reviews, our staff works hard to obtain the maximum benefit allowed by a patient’s company and our goal is to exhaust all possible options to prevent funding from being a barrier to the treatment.

Why doesn't Enterhealth offer in-network insurance coverage?

We’re different. When Enterhealth was first started, the goal was to provide the highest quality addiction treatment possible. Period. And that goal remains. Unfortunately, in today’s managed-care environment, in-network insurance providers are sometimes limited in the resources they can afford to offer.

Enterhealth does not want to be limited in the scope and nature of clinical services we can bring to bear to help our patients conquer addiction and live a successful life of recovery. To provide the best treatment, we need the best resources – which includes highly educated and trained staff, state-of-the-art equipment, and comfortable, beautiful facilities.

Does Enterhealth offer payment plans?

Our goal is to exhaust all options possible to eliminate funding as a barrier to the highest quality treatment available.

SmartHealth PayCard is another way to pay for healthcare expenses and daily medical needs. Based on credit worthiness, you can get approved in minutes and use your virtual card immediately to cover your expenses.

Why is inpatient treatment considered the best option for most patients?

We understand that residential treatment is disruptive to families, careers, and everyday life. But that’s one of the reasons why it’s so effective. In most cases, the brain of someone with a substance use disorder needs disrupting in order to break the harmful patterns to which it’s accustomed.

In addition, people who enter residential treatment typically have problems that require combined medical, psychological and/or physical therapies over a sustained period of time in a controlled environment. Residential treatment is often the most practical and effective course of action.

Does Enterhealth provide detoxification services?

Yes. Patients undergo a withdrawal stabilization process with the 24/7 support of medical staff, which makes detox safer and more comfortable.

Is detox available separately from primary treatment?

No. Detox alone is not an effective addiction treatment. Every element of your Enterhealth treatment program, from your assessment through aftercare, is essential for lasting recovery.

When are anti-addiction medications needed?

Depending upon the substance being used, for how long, and in what quantities, anti-addiction medications may be the best solution to rebalance altered brain chemistry and help that person stop using. Research shows that a personalized treatment plan combining these kinds of medications with evidence-based behavioral therapies is the most effective way to address individual abuse patterns and co-occurring medical, psychiatric, and social problems to achieve a sustained recovery.

How are families involved in the treatment process?

Addiction harms more than one person—every relationship can be affected. Families are not only encouraged to support their loved one with addiction through visitation and communication, but are invited for their own family therapy as well.

Do you treat mental disorders such as depression and bipolar disorder?

Yes. We believe it is essential to treat all co-occurring disorders as a part of addiction treatment.

Are there full-time psychiatrists and psychologists on staff?

Yes, our board-certified and addiction-trained psychiatrists, psychologists, and medical staff are on staff full-time.

Do you do any follow-up after discharge?

Yes. Part of your discharge plan includes continuing care in an outpatient setting, whether that is the Enterhealth Outpatient Center of Excellence in Dallas, or a qualified outpatient center in your area.

How long has Enterhealth been in existence?

Enterhealth was founded in 2008.

Why would I choose Enterhealth for substance abuse treatment?

Enterhealth uses evidence-based treatment protocols and comprehensive care to target every single aspect of your addiction. Our treatment is based on NIH research and is the best possible care for sustained recovery.

What makes Enterhealth different from other treatment centers?

Enterhealth goes beyond the substance of abuse. We treat the entire person—physically, mentally and spiritually—and their family, too. We do not follow the status quo in addiction treatment: our goal is to ensure a lifetime of recovery.

When is the best time to enter addiction treatment?

It’s a myth that those with addiction problems need to hit “rock bottom” before they’re ready for treatment. Helping your loved one get help early in their addiction cycle will result in fewer accompanying psychological and physical problems and a better prognosis for long-term recovery.

Furthermore, “rock bottom” is a dangerous place to be. For many addicts, that point is when a near-fatal or fatal overdose, serious accident, or criminal justice consequence has occurred.
