Because Aurora has a fully operational Medical Detoxification unit, led by our Medical Director, members can detox safely here at ARC, which means clean time prior to admission is not required.
Although we require payment at the time of admission, we encourage individuals to submit their receipts for reimbursement with their insurance company. We will absolutely assist in providing any documentation your insurance company requires.
In order to be certain, we recommend you contact your insurance company.
Aurora’s inpatient program varies with the needs of the member, but averages 30-45 days following detox (which is not included in treatment program days).
Members can choose from 30, 45, 60 or 90 days.

Our philosophy is based on the belief that patients must learn new behaviors in order to help them recover from the disease of addiction. In most cases individuals suffering from this disorder have learned to isolate and hide what they are feeling. These tactics aid in maintaining their addiction while distancing themselves from family, friends, counselors and peers. As the disease has progressed, chemically dependent individuals find the company of people too painful, or too intrusive to bear. Here at Aurora, we use peer interaction (such as roommates) to allow our members to re-learn how to interact and avoid isolation to help them deal with addictive behaviors. For this reason all rooms are shared and regular room checks are conducted by staff.
