Traveling For Treatment to Panama City Beach

Making the decision to travel for treatment or stay near home is the first decision many patients and families have to make when choosing where to begin their recovery journey. There are many benefits to traveling for treatment as opposed to staying local.

Reasons People Travel For Treatment

Faster Availability

Top tier treatment can sometimes mean a waitlist. For clients who need treatment right away, this could mean traveling to receive immediate assistance. We urge you to call right away to determine if we have availability for you on an immediate basis. We are committed to helping you find care in a timely fashion, even if that means helping to get you in elsewhere.

Cost Savings

The local treatment centers in your area may be out of your price range in terms of insurance or private pay. Often times patients use insurance benefits to pay for treatment and while some in-network options may be close by, there are some that may still be far away. Traveling may be a better financial fit for the patient and family.

Avoiding Triggers

Some clients need to put some distance between themselves and the temptation of their current life. Finding a new community for treatment can be the key. Upon leaving JourneyPure Emerald Coast in Panama City Beach, many patients are able to return home having found the recovery support they need to avoid past triggers, enablers and unhealthy habits.

Other patients sometimes love the new community where they found recovery and choose not to return home. Either way, separation can be just the start needed to ensure a patient completes their treatment plan and reaches the goals they set for themselves.

Our private pay families also look to make sure the location they are selecting is one that meets their goals both clinically and financially. Sometimes the best fit means a plane ride.

Some clients in very rural areas don’t have access to quality care. Finding accredited therapists and facilities can sometimes mean traveling for drug and alcohol treatment. Choosing the best treatment center for your goals is a very important first step to living the sober life you deserve.

Staying in Panama City For Treatment

Sometimes clients are not able to travel for treatment even if they want to. Some of the most common reasons you may or may not be a candidate for traveling to treatment are:

Legal issues: Sometimes the law prohibits individuals from leaving the state.

Insurance: When a client is dependent on insurance for receiving care, they may not be able to travel due to insurance benefits denying out of state coverage.

Family role: Some families will be participating in the treatment program through family counseling and local treatment may provide for better access for family care.
