What to Expect

We want each client to feel fully prepared for treatment before they arrive. Knowing what to bring to rehab can help prepare clients for their treatment experience.

We recommend that clients bring:

  • A form of identification, along with a pharmacy card
  • Seasonally appropriate clothing
  • Comfortable sleepwear
  • Sealed (unopened) alcohol-free toiletries, including shampoo and conditioner, sunscreen, face wash and feminine products

Items that are not permitted at our center include:

  • Drugs or alcohol, drug-related paraphernalia and clothing depicting drugs
  • Products that contain alcohol as an ingredient, including hand sanitizer and mouthwash
  • Vaporizers (vaping devices, vapes)
  • Computers, tablets, cameras and electronic devices with internet access

Paying For Treatment

The Recovery Village Palmer Lake is in-network with most major insurance carriers including Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, Humana, and United. Call our admissions team to see if your specific insurance plan will cover the cost of treatment.

What Treatment Looks Like

Rehab at our facility usually follows a similar process for every client, beginning with an intake evaluation and ending with an aftercare plan.

Intake assessment

Upon arriving at our facility, each client participates in a comprehensive intake evaluation that assesses their mental and physical health. Our team uses the results of this assessment to create a personalized treatment plan for each client.

Treatment and Rehab

Medical detox

Most people will enroll in detoxification as the first step of rehab. This level of care is necessary because it rids the body of drugs and alcohol and offers 24-hour support as clients go through withdrawal. Once detox is complete, clients can start inpatient care with a fresh foundation for recovery.

What to Expect During Medical Detox

Transition to other levels of care

Detox lays the groundwork for further residential treatment, including inpatient, partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient care. During each of these programs, clients live onsite and receive medical care and mental health counseling support. When it’s medically appropriate, clients can move from residential care to outpatient treatment.

Levels of Care in Addiction Treatment


A solid aftercare plan prepares people for life after rehab and empowers them to stay strong in recovery with a variety of medical, therapeutic and social supports. Our aftercare plans usually include recommendations for local support groups, maintenance medication schedules (if necessary) and follow-up appointments with local doctors and therapists.

Amazing rehab absolutely loved the program they have!!!
The following was a post I made when leaving recovery village 2/2020. I have faced adversity, but remained sober and content even in sadness or moments of panic-moments pass.The following was and still is true.I had a wonderful experience! My therapist, Robert, was wonderful and a perfect fit for me! He held me accountable, yet was kind. I also appreciate how he and Shane made my son feel welcome from the beginning of the process. My son LOVED family day with Cindy and even asked to come to another session with her. I always felt Stephen was approachable and all the staff was wonderful. Thank you to Ashley for helping me create a solid follow up plan even with the corona virus happening. I would recommend this program and have it listed in my 911 plan in case of any problem. Thank you to everyone!!!
Can not say enough good things about this place. The staff really cares about every single patient! It shows in everything they do. Highly recommend this rehab center. Take that first step, pass through the doors into PLR!
This was a great experience. Most people leave reviews like this is some resort but it is a recovery center. This was my second time here and I have 158 days. Made lots of friends and built a good network in my sober community. Just remember that recovery is selfish, you have to want it, and that "ITS NOT AN OPTION" -Dr. GUpdate 01/15/2024 (347 days since my last drink)Update: 04/16/2024 I left PLR on 420 (438)
