Checking In to Inpatient Rehab
When you call, admission times are scheduled to ensure each person gets the full attention of our care team upon arrival. A late arrival may cause a wait time.
Each resident must consent to a search of their person and belongings upon arrival to ensure the safety and sobriety of all patients. During this search, staff members will collect any items not permitted during treatment and store them safely and securely until you finish your stay. Additional random searches may be conducted throughout your time at The Recovery Village Cherry Hill at Cooper.
The Recovery Village Cherry Hill at Cooper is taking proactive steps to ensure the health and safety of all patients, employees and the communities we serve. We are following the latest CDC guidelines for controlling the spread of COVID-19, including testing, face masks and enhanced sanitation protocols.
Our Treatment Process
Patients at The Recovery Village Cherry Hill at Cooper begin in a treatment program that best suits their needs, then may step down to lower care levels as they progress through their plan. Treatment often begins with a medical detox, followed by inpatient or intensive outpatient care.
A medically supervised detox process can help you overcome the physical symptoms of drug withdrawal. Throughout this difficult first step, our priority is your safety and comfort. Our medical staff will maintain your physical safety during detox and care for you around the clock to ensure a healthy detox process. Detoxification alone can’t change the course of an addiction, so a rehab program usually follows it.
After medical detox, inpatient rehab is often the vital next step on the road to healing. Inpatient rehab, sometimes referred to as residential rehab, is an intensive program in which clients spend work with medical and clinical professionals to learn how to live life without substances. With a variety of clinical and recreational therapy options and onsite amenities, inpatient care can be a transformative piece of a full continuum of care.
Outpatient care services provide non-residents the services and treatment they need to thrive outside of our facilities and throughout their personal recovery journey. At The Recovery Village at Palmer Lake, clients work with counselors to create relapse prevention strategies and find support. This can take place in personal sessions or via telemedicine — a cutting-edge method of providing clients clinical health care at a distance.
Length of Stay
How long you stay may depend on your program, customized treatment plan, recovery progress and insurance coverage. In general, clients may receive:
- Medical detox for 5–7 days
- Inpatient care, including medical detox for 14–28 days
- Total stay including PHP and IOP care is 35–60 days
Will I be forced to stay in treatment?
We encourage all patients to finish their treatment plan entirely, as leaving medical care too soon can lead to relapse and overdose. However, patients can choose to leave rehab at any time, even against medical advice, as long as they are not a danger to themself or others.

Attending Outpatient Rehab
If you’re starting treatment in online outpatient care, you’ll receive a few emails from us. One of these will welcome you to Nobu, our online mental wellness app, requesting you create your account. The second will ask you to complete electronic treatment consent forms, and the third will confirm your upcoming appointment(s).
Insurance and Your Obligation During Treatment
Most health insurance plans require you to pay out-of-pocket costs to access your healthcare benefits (collectively known as the “Patient Responsibility”). Your individual Patient Responsibility will differ.
An intake coordinator will discuss your Patient Responsibility with you when you’re admitted or as soon as you are medically stable. They will explain the deductible due during admission and that the co-insurance amount and out-of-pocket cost will be billed and paid for once services are complete. Onsite financial counselors will review your financial responsibility again during treatment with case managers who can help you navigate FMLA and short-term disability.
You are responsible for checking with your insurance provider before admittance at The Recovery Village Cherry Hill at Cooper to ensure you understand your benefits plan. Please note your insurance policy may not be a “participating provider” with The Recovery Village Cherry Hill at Cooper. You are responsible for all non-covered and out-of-pocket costs related to your treatment stay.
Nobu, Your Mental Wellness App
During your stay, we’ll introduce you to the Nobu app. You can use Nobu to strengthen your mental health and connect with your therapist after treatment.
