Residential Program Overview
The Residential Program operates seven days a week, 24 hours per day. All residents follow a posted schedule of activities. Check-in time for the treatment center is No later than 11am, unless discussed with the Residential Coordinator. Check-out time is to be determined with staff.
Our physician and physician assistants oversee your medical and treatment plan with your input. You will not see the doctor every day, but your primary therapist and nurse will be in continual contact with the doctor regarding your recovery and treatment plan. If a medical emergency arises, 911 will be called and you will be taken to the nearest emergency room.
What to expect when you first arrive
You will be greeted by the front desk and fill out all paperwork necessary for residential admission. You will wait to see a provider and once you are seen a medical staff will escort you to our residential side, where the medical staff will take your vitals, check in, inventory your items brought in, proceed to dry your clothing for 60 minutes, then show you to your room, you will be given a few lab tests. After this process, the medical staff will show you around and introduce you to everyone. You’ll meet with the intake counselor to complete your residential admission assessment (this is the form of the ASI “Adult Severity Index” or BSAP “Biopsychosocial Assessment”.) Our residential admissions coordinator will work with your insurance for your treatment’s preauthorization benefits.

Pets: Pets are not allowed on the grounds.
Vehicles: Residents are not allowed to bring personal vehicles, unless approved by the Residential Coordinator or Office Admin.
Family / Visitors
Family visits are suspended temporarily due to the Covid-19 pandemic. When this restriction is lifted, the policies documented below will take effect.
When the primary therapist and clinical team believe the resident is ready, he/she will be allowed to have visitors during normal visiting hours, based on his/her treatment goals.
The following information will help you become familiar with our visiting hours at the facility.
- A therapeutic visitor form must be filled out every week and turned into your therapist by Thursday at noon. If this is not filled out, your visitors will not be approved and will be asked to leave.
- Visiting hours are between 1:00pm-3:00pm Saturday and Sunday.
- Visitors are limited to two persons per visit, unless other arrangements have been authorized by the therapists.
- All minor visitors (i.e. 18 years and younger) must be in the care of their legal guardian while on the property.
- All visitors must adhere to the Inroads to Recovery visitors policy as stated in the residential handbook
- Please note that a patient must have 18 months of sobriety after leaving treatment at Inroads prior to visiting a resident at Inroads to Recovery
Item Drop Offs: If any visitor wishes to bring or drop off an item to a resident, it must be dropped off at the reception area on the outpatient side of the building (southwest door entrance) during normal business hours: Monday-Thursday 8:30am-4:30pm and Friday 8:30am-2:30pm ONLY.
In an effort to optimize the residents bonding time we Absolutely do not allow any drop offs on the weekends! Items may be brought ONLY during normal visiting hours on Saturday’s and Sunday’s, and must be walked back to the nurse’s station to await inspection by med staff. Residents are not allowed to take any items directly from visitors.
Items should be sealed and clearly marked with the resident’s name, all items are subject to inspection in an effort to enhance the collective safety of all the patients.
Mail: We encourage Family and friends to send residents mail at any time. We believe that words of encouragement are a huge part of the recovery process. All mail will be opened with staff in front of the patient, prior to the patient receiving the mail.
A Special Message to Friends and Family
Thank you for entrusting your loved one to our care. Participating in treatment is often an overwhelming experience for your loved one so he or she will require a great deal of support from you while in treatment. Your loved one will be given a great deal of care while in our treatment facility. At Inroads to Recovery all clients participate in an educational and evidence based holistic approach to treatment, designed to assist them in increasing their understanding of addiction and to facilitate their personal journey toward recovery. Our staff helps clients identify triggers both within themselves and within their environment and we work with them to develop appropriate coping skills to prevent relapse from occurring.
We would like to take this opportunity to provide you with important information about our treatment facility. Upon admission, patients receive a psychiatric evaluation and assessment. Following these assessments, our team will determine the most appropriate level of care and begin developing a treatment plan.
We believe that having family (as well as other sober supports) participate in treatment leads to the best outcomes. Here are some of the resources that you may find helpful:
- Online Resources
- Telephone Resources
- Suicide Prevention: (800) 273-TALK / (800) 273-8255
- Nebraska Family Helpline: (888) 866-8660
- Economic Assistance: (800) 383-4278
- Medicaid Assistance: (855) 632-7633
We expect that every person entering treatment will possess varying degrees of motivation. As treatment becomes more difficult, that motivation may be tested. As a result, there may be a time when he or she will call asking to be picked up or to be allowed to leave because things have become difficult to manage. We are here as a resource to assist you and provide reassurance during these difficult moments. It is important that everyone entering treatment remains involved in activities and completes goals successfully. If a client is attempting to leave treatment before they have completed it can be very detrimental to their long-term recovery journey. Always remember the reasons that your loved one required treatment and support them in completing treatment.
Once again we understand your concern for your family member and we hope to validate your trust in us to provide treatment and assist in the journey of recovery. Thank you for choosing Inroads to Recovery.
