    Addicted to Chaos: When Life in Sobriety Seems Boring 

    People that enter drug treatment do so with a tremendous amount of baggage. Drug and alcohol addiction has thrown their lives into total disarray, and through the treatment services and expert care provided at a drug rehab facility they can begin to piece their lives back together. When those new in recovery leave treatment and transition back home, they have the tools  they need to restore calm, structure and order in their lives. While newly recovering individuals feel a strong sense of empowerment and excitement in building a new life in recovery, danger can lurk beneath the surface. For those who are newly sober, they will encounter many obstacles in their recovery journey­­ and many of them are mental in nature. Perhaps the most common mental obstacle is the perception that recovery is boring . There is no doubt that recovery brings stability, but for some newly recovering addicts, they may not know how to handle the newfound peace that comes with stability. Despite all the good that is happening in their lives, they will seek out drama at every turn. In these cases, it can be said they have replaced an addiction to drugs and alcohol with an addiction to chaos. What Does It Mean To Be Addicted to Chaos? An addiction to substances is often seen as being the tip of the proverbial iceberg in regards to the deeper issues an addict has experienced in their life. For many, they come from a background where there is great dysfunction. Whether it is personal trauma, family issues and history with addiction, or mental illness, many who experience this type of environment can come to view it as a normal part of everyday life­­and they will resort to substance use in order to help “make sense of things”. When the addict undergoes drug treatment and starts to get sober, a couple of things can occur. First, the addict experiences anxiety in regards to the scope of the deeper underlying issues that lie at the root of their addiction. Secondly, they may gravitate towards any drama that may be occurring in their lives as a coping mechanism to deal with that anxiety. If underlying issues go unresolved during treatment and carry over into their recovery outside of rehab, those new in sobriety will continue to seek out chaos­­and in many ways can be addicted to chaos. The concept of chaos addiction  may be more difficult to grasp due to its abstract nature, but the addictive patterns it demonstrates in a person’s behavior can have similarities to more commonly­known addictive behavior. Because of these similarities, people who are in recovery can take steps to minimize the phenomenon of chaos in addiction. Tips to Managing An Addiction to Chaos Seek Professional Mental Health Help For those who may be showing the signs of chaos addiction in their recovery, the first thing that must be done is to seek the help of an experienced mental health provider. These professionals can perform comprehensive evaluations in order to identify any underlying disorders that may have gone undiagnosed. With a proper diagnosis, the appropriate mental health interventions can be implemented along with any complimentary substance abuse interventions. Engage in Mindful Meditation Practices Learning mindful meditation techniques  have long been a staple of life and coping skills education at many drug rehab centers. Easy to master, meditation allows people dealing with anxiety and stress to focus their thinking in the present moment. When someone engages in meditative practices, it invokes a parasympathetic response from the body which lowers heart rate, blood pressure and it decreases the production of stress hormones in the body. Learning to Identify Relationships, Environment and Circumstances That Promote Chaos People in recovery who find themselves becoming addicted to chaos need to have the same mindset they adopted during treatment, which is to avoid the people, places and things that cause chaos in their lives. There needs to be a clear identification of what causes dysfunction in one’s daily life. While it may not be possible to avoid these situations, those who are in recovery from substance abuse need to find healthy and proactive ways to deal with the stress and anxiety that accompany chaos. Learning to Set Boundaries A common thread for those who are addicted to chaos is the fact they were raised in a home environment in which personal boundaries were not respected. To minimize chaos in recovery, those who are newly recovering need to learn ways to set limits where others are not able to overstep their bounds. For example, if someone is speaking to a person who is highly negative of themselves or others, they must learn to redirect the conversation to a more positive place or leave that conversation altogether. Chaotic Behavior Needs to Be Seen as Relapse Behavior There are many in recovery­­especially early in recovery­­ who view a relapse has a sudden event. In reality, relapse is the result of a myriad of behaviors that occur for a significant period before the actual relapse event. For those in recovery who allow chaos to control their life, they need to immediately recognize that the anxiety and stress they are feeling are telltale signs that a return to active substance use may be near. With that recognition, they can take the necessary steps to get stable.

paying-for-treatmentMany addiction treatment centers require payment for all treatment costs at the time of admission. At Valley Hope, we understand such payment is sometimes difficult. Our first and highest concern is that our patients receive the treatment they need. Valley Hope offers many payment options for treatment costs. These options, which are available at each of our rehab centers, can be discussed with one of our admission coordinators prior to admission by calling our toll free number at (800) 544-5101. Our staff are trained to help patients and family members get into treatment and they can tailor a payment plan to accommodate most personal situations.

It is always standard procedure at Valley Hope rehab centers for the admissions staff to meet face to face with patients and family to ensure they are aware of all financial options.

Insurance Coverage

Valley Hope’s rehab centers are an in-network provider for many insurance and managed care companies. Valley Hope will contact your insurance company to get an estimate of your insurance benefits and this estimate will be discussed with you. Your actual benefits will be determined by your insurance company after a claim is filed and, in some cases, can be different than the estimated benefits. Most insurance companies will require our rehab centers to obtain advance approval from them to allow you to use your chemical dependency benefits. This decision is made by the insurance company and is based on medical necessity criteria they have developed. In many cases, insurance companies will approve only a few days or sessions at a time and then require us to obtain further approval for continued treatment.

As a service to you, VHA rehab centers will file a claim with your insurance company on your behalf promptly after discharge. While your insurance claim is pending you will not be billed for the portion of your treatment we expect insurance to pay. Most insurance claims require 30 to 120 days to settle. Payments received from your insurance company will be credited to your patient account. Your insurance company may send you a statement explaining your benefits around the same time we credit your account for the insurance benefits. Questions or concerns about insurance payment on your account should be directed to your insurance company.

Cash Discount Program

Many patients have found it convenient to pay their account in full before they discharge.Valley Hope rehab centers offer a 10% discount to patients who pay their account in full before discharge. Patients using their health insurance benefits at Valley Hope are not eligible for the Cash Discount Program.

Loan Agreement

Unless other arrangements are made, the full balance of your account, less any estimated insurance benefits, is due within 60 days after your discharge. Our Patient Loan program is very popular with patients who are not able to settle their patient account within 60 days.

The Loan Agreement is designed for those patients or family members who need to pay for treatment over time. If you choose this option, we will work closely with you to personalize a Loan Agreement with a monthly payment that fits your budget and meets our rehab centers minimum payment requirements.

There is a 120-day grace period from date of admission before interest begins. The interest rate on your loan will be based on the amount of your payment and method of payment chosen. Currently rates are between 6% and 14% APR. VHA will send you a monthly statement and payment envelope, which should arrive to your address within the first 7-10 days of each month. Your payments are due by the 20th day of each month.

As part of its Loan program, Valley Hope rehab centers offer an Automatic Payment Plan and a Graduated Payment Plan to assist patients in paying for treatment.

  • Automatic Payment Plan VHA now offers the convenience of an Automatic Payment option for those who would like to have their monthly payment deducted from their checking account, savings account, debit card or credit card each month. Many patients like this option because it qualifies you for a lower interest rate on your loan, saves time and postage, and eliminates late payments. You may choose a payment date of the 5th or the 20th of each month. VHA rehab centers will reduce your interest rate by 2% if you choose this option. You will continue to receive a statement each month so that you may review activity on your account for the prior month.
  • Graduated Payment Plan We understand that after treatment, some of our patients find it difficult to pay loan payments because they may be changing residences or re-entering the work force. We offer a Graduated Payment Plan to help ease you into your regular monthly minimum loan payment. This option, available at all our rehab centers, allows you to pay a smaller monthly amount for up to one year after discharge.

Patient Aid

For financially needy patients, a limited amount of addiction Treatment Scholarships are available. During your treatment stay, the Business Manager meets with all patients to develop an appropriate payment plan. This meeting will determine if you qualify for financial assistance in the form of a Treatment Scholarship.
