  • What is the refund policy?

    Refunds shall not be given to clients who discharge from Willow Springs Recovery against professional advice, or who leave the program before their scheduled discharge date.
    Should it be determined, through clinical assessment, at any time during the treatment term that a client requires a level of care other than what is provided by the Sunshine Behavioral Health treatment program, the client shall be referred to an appropriate treatment provider. In such instances, Sunshine Behavioral Health shall refund, on a prorated basis, all remaining/unused monies to the client.

  • Can I bring my cell and/or laptop?

    Yes. Because we understand that it is important for our clients not to feel cut off or isolated from the outside world, we allow you to keep in contact through our inclusive cell phone and laptop policy. The use of these devices is restricted during group and individual therapy sessions.

  • Do you have private rooms?


  • Is smoking and/or use of tobacco permitted?

  • I want to keep this confidential. How will Sunshine Behavioral Health protect my privacy?

    Sunshine Behavioral Health has strict rules when it comes to keeping your information confidential. We comply with federal drug and alcohol confidentiality laws and regulations and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) standards to keep your privacy safe.

  • How much does drug and alcohol treatment cost?

    The cost for addiction treatment can vary based on the type of treatment you will need, and how long your stay will be. We cannot determine the cost of treatment for your rehabilitation until your insurance information is verified. To make this process easier, we can verify your insurance, fast and free. You also have the option to self-pay if you do not have insurance.

  • How fast can I get into a substance abuse treatment facility?

    Our experienced advisors can have you in a treatment facility the same day, pending approval. Our recovery advisors work hard around the clock to provide our clients with the best service for addiction, whether it’s related to alcohol or drugs (both illegal and prescription drugs). We are here to help you find the best treatment to help you overcome your substance abuse problems. Feel free to contact our substance abuse hotline at 949-276-2886. Our recovery advisors are available to take your call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to get you the right treatment you need.

  • How long does treatment take?

    Generally speaking, the rehabilitation services and treatment programs can last anywhere from 30 to 90 days. The rehabilitation and detoxification facilities will determine the length of time treatment is needed based on your specific clinical needs to ensure your recovery is a success.

  • What insurance can I obtain to cover the cost of addiction treatment?

    Sunshine Behavioral Health helps individuals who are looking for lives free from substance abuse and addiction. We are not an insurance carrier, nor do we have the legal license to draw applications for medical coverage. Once you obtain insurance, we will gladly give you a free insurance verification and find the best addiction treatment program for you based on your specific needs.
