Our Admissions Process
At Next Generation Village, we serve teens ages 13–17. We take a highly individualized approach to admitting patients. Be assured that our experienced team will walk your family through every step of the path to recovery.
We often make our first acquaintance with your teen over the phone. During this private call, one of our compassionate and experienced intake staffers assesses your teen’s situation and identifies primary obstacles that stand in the way of recovery.
Holistic, Individualized Approach
After we’ve been able to understand your teen’s struggles and strengths, we determine whether they fit the criteria for treatment at Next Generation Village. If so, the next step is to create an individualized rehab plan. In doing this, we consider the myriad factors that feed your teen’s addiction, such as state of mind, physical health and present chemical status.
Once a recovery plan has been established for your child, you may drop them off at our facility. Within 24 hours of arrival, each patient attends an orientation meeting to get acquainted with our culture, expectations, daily routines and other recovering patients. This gives your teen an understanding of our community, and how it will play into their recovery.
What to Expect
If a drug detox is necessary, it will take place immediately upon your child’s arrival at Next Generation Village. After their first few days of rehab, your teen will be able to call you and let you know how they are doing.
Next Generation Village has meaningful rules that are designed to keep your teen safe and focused on recovery.
Here are a few important ones:
- Drugs, alcohol, tobacco and any other mind-altering substances are strictly prohibited.
- Patients must arrive at therapy sessions in a timely fashion, and remain for the duration of each meeting.
- Your teen will be expected to treat staff members and other patients with respect.
- No patient may exit the Next Generation Village campus without being accompanied by a staff member.
- Visitors must obtain prior permission to enter the campus.
- Staff has the right to search patient belongings, rooms, cars, etc.
- Romantic fraternizing is not allowed.
- All containers (shampoo, etc.) that are brought into the facility must be new and unopened.
- Patients must adhere to Next Generation Village’s dress code.
While at Next Generation Village, your teen will wake up to a nutritious, chef-prepared breakfast every morning. Breakfast is just one of three meals a day as well as a snack. As the day progresses, your teen will attend multiple therapy sessions, some one-on-one and some alongside peers.
Daily activities include the likes of arts and crafts, outdoor recreation, writing exercises, culinary education, and more. Your teen also gets time to relax, unwind and reflect, and our well-appointed waterside facility is the perfect spot to do just that. Importantly, everyone has a weekly doctor’s visit to check in on their physical health. A bedtime is observed to ensure that each teen gets adequate rest.
Traveling to an unfamiliar place for recovery can be intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be. Our staff can assist with the coordination of travel arrangements to ensure safe arrival and departure to and from any of our facilities.
In many cases, treatment is covered by your insurance provider. Since navigating those waters can be complicated, our team at Next Generation Village stands ready to walk you through the process, step by step. We can help you determine your plan’s compatibility with our facility, and whether any out-of-pocket costs may be incurred by treatment. As you consider getting your teen drug and alcohol treatment, please give us a call for a free insurance consultation. We accept most major insurances.
