The Grove Recovery Community in Santa Ana (Orange County, California) is a pet-friendly rehab. 

What is pet-friendly rehab?

A pet-friendly rehab is one that will do everything in their power to help you overcome the obstacles that stand between you and the help that you need. This means that if you have a pet at home with no one to take care of it, the rehab will do everything in their power to help you figure that out. Sometimes that means that you’re even encouraged to bring your pet with you; it’s always a case-by-case basis, no matter what you may read on a rehab’s website. The best way to find out if you can bring your pet to rehab is to give us a call and let us help you sort out the logistics.

The Grove is a pet-friendly rehab in Santa Ana that understands the deep bond between you and your pet. We understand that seeking help through rehab can be one of the most courageous steps you take. We also know that pets are family members, and that not having a place for your pet to go can sometimes stand in the way of treatment.

 If this is the situation you find yourself in, please don’t hesitate to call us today.

What a Pet-Friendly Rehab is Not

Many people are surprised to find out that a pet-friendly rehab does not mean that your pet will be integrated as part of your recovery. It also doesn’t mean that the facility features an on-premise veterinarian service or dog-walking service.  

Before bringing your dog, it’s important to ensure they are up-to-date on vaccinations and able to adapt to a new environment alongside other people. You can also contact us at any time for further details about how to prepare for pet-friendly rehab

Interestingly, when you do an online search for “pet-friendly rehab centers near me,” you might not get as many results as you would hope. That’s because not many treatment centers in the area accept pets. At The Grove, we know firsthand how restorative and therapeutic our furry friends can be for recovery, and we don’t want the care of your pet to stand between you and your healing journey.

Ultimately, our goal is to make your recovery as comfortable and effective as possible, and having your dog by your side can be a significant part of that. Contact our admissions team to discuss specific requirements and preparations for including your pet in your rehabilitation journey. 

Why would someone attend a pet-friendly rehab?

Many times, someone may want to attend rehab but they have a pet at home, and there’s no one able (or no one trustworthy enough) to look after their pet while they attend an inpatient treatment center. We don’t want a situation like this to be an obstacle between you and rehab.

Benefits of Pet-Friendly Rehab in Santa Ana

The two main benefits of a pet-friendly rehab are:

  • “Pet-Friendly” is a signal that you’ll be in good hands: A rehab that advertises that they are pet-friendly (like we do here at The Grove Recovery Communities) is a rehab that is more likely to work very hard to help you figure out how to overcome any obstacle between you and recovery, not just a situation with a pet. It generally signals that the people at that rehab are truly caring and are willing to go the extra mile.
  • Peace of mind: Owning a pet and not having anyone to watch it for you while you’re away can be a major burden in recovery. Making sure your pet is looked after means you can focus on your recovery.

Will I still get the maximum benefit from rehab if I bring my pet?

Yes, you’ll be able to get as much – if not more than – what you’d get out of rehab if you went without your pet.

Programs vary among facilities, but you’ll still be able to access the resources you need to overcome your alcohol or drug addiction.

You’ll be less stressed because you know where your pet is always, and you’ll be able to monitor their wellbeing. Your pet may even be able to join in on activities such as outdoor exercises.

What You Should Know About Bringing Your Pet To Rehab In Santa Ana

Clients who participate in pet-friendly rehab programs generally are responsible for caring for their pets, which means keeping them fed, clean, and safe. Pets need to be up to date on their vaccinations. Additionally, you should tell admissions staff about any behavioral issues your pet has before you commit to a program.

It’s likely your pet will be around other animals in a pet-friendly rehab facility. Make sure your pet can safely coexist with other animals before bringing them to the facility on a full-time basis.

Types of Pets Allowed at Our Pet-Friendly Rehab in Santa Ana

The Grove Recovery Communities welcome animal companions in its pet-friendly rehab in Santa Ana on a case-by-case basis.  We never want a logistical matter–whether it’s traveling across the country to get here or simply having a pet at home with no one to care for it–to stand between a potential client and the recovery that they need. 

That’s why we assess our client’s pets on a case-by-case basis and ensure each animal can get along with other clients and staff members. We don’t have a list of accepted breeds or types of animals; the best way to find out if we can take both you and your pet is to call us today!

Pet Requirements in Rehab

Our primary focus is the well-being of our clients. That’s why we are one of the few pet-friendly rehab centers in Santa Ana – because we know that sometimes, everything can fall perfectly into place for a successful recovery experience and then one logistical obstacle will arise. We never want logistics to stand in the way of recovery.

That said, we do expect compliance from pet owners.  

Firstly, all pets must be up-to-date on their vaccinations to protect both the animals and the people in the facility. Pets should be well-behaved and able to coexist safely with other animals, as they will likely encounter other people (and maybe even other pets) during the program. Clients are generally responsible for the care of their pets, which includes feeding, maintaining cleanliness, and ensuring their overall safety. 

Before admission into our exclusive pet-friendly rehab in Santa Ana, it’s important to inform the staff of any behavioral issues or special needs your pet might have. This allows our facility to make necessary arrangements and ensure that both you and your pet have a comfortable and supportive experience during the rehab program.

Cost of Pet-Friendly Rehab Centers

The decision to enter rehab, especially a pet-friendly rehab in Santa Ana, involves careful consideration of various factors, including cost. We strive to make our treatment programs accessible and affordable while still providing the highest quality of care for both you and your beloved pet. 

That said, owners are expected to pay for their pets’ care, feeding, and maintenance during their stay at The Grove. Additionally, the owner must cover any damages caused by their pet.  Please contact us to ensure you understand the costs involved in our pet-friendly rehab program. Our dedicated team is here to assist you with any questions or concerns you may have about our pet-friendly rehabs in Santa Ana.

Does insurance cover pet-friendly rehab?

Substance use disorder treatment is frequently included in health insurance plans. Exactly how much of your pet-friendly rehab treatment can be covered by insurance depends on your plan. Give us a call and have your insurance information handy (it’s best if you are able to send us a photo of your insurance card) so we can help you figure out what your insurance will cover.
