The reviews are clear: treatment here works. The care team here actually cares. The Dittmer facilities are nice. It’s so much better than they thought it would be and better than any treatment option they’ve tried before.

I can say from personal experience that this is an amazing place. The staff have a passion for what they do and truly care. I loved that the owners are interested in every single person who walks through those doors. They gave me so many tools and resources that I use every day! You will not be disappointed!

Now I am coming up on 6 months clean. The amazing staff and education received at Sana Lake has given me a new life I never thought possible. I still regularly am in contact with connections I made there in staff and fellow patients. My counselor has been instrumental in my aftercare too.

I arrived at Sana Lake physically, morally, and spiritually bankrupt. The entire staff had my best interest in mind. The clinical staff addressed any physical and mental issues that I had neglected for years. They listened to me and came up with a treatment plan that fit my complex needs.

Jefferson County Rehab FAQs

Don’t let anything hold you back from getting the help you need. Explore the answers to some of the most commonly asked questions and call to get any further questions answered, no commitment. 

Members come for a wide range of substance use disorders. Many struggle with more than one substance (ie. alcohol and benzodiazepines).

The substances of choice generally reflect the substance use statistics in Missouri. The three most common substances here are:

  • Alcohol: Over 60% of patients are treated for alcohol issues, as the most commonly abused substance in the state.
  • Opioids: Over 20% of patients come for opioid addiction treatment, including prescription painkillers and heroin, mirroring the significant opioid misuse issues across Missouri.
  • Stimulants: Around 10% of patients come for issues with stimulants, including cocaine and methamphetamine, which is higher than in other states.

The remaining members come for other substances like benzodiazepines (Xanax), marijuana and inhalants.

No matter what substance you are struggling with, this program can (and will) help you.

Treatment is holistic and comprehensive, integrating different therapies and medications.

The first step is detox. It often takes several days to feel physically your best, but it’s nothing like doing it on your own!

Therapy includes talk therapy, group therapy and wellness options like meditation, yoga and journaling. You’ll get down to the core of your issue – including addressing underlying issues like trauma, depression, anxiety, sleep and even family therapy if needed. 

You’ll talk about what to do after treatment to stay well. You have the option to continue outpatient therapy in St. Louis or virtually, as well as sober living.

You also have access to the lake, including fishing and paddle boating, and to a gym. 

It is nothing like a hospital or jail. It’s not like other rehabs either.

Most members here use their insurance. We’re in-network with most major health insurance companies including Blue Cross, Blue Shield, WellFirst Health, Health Link, United Healthcare / Optum, Humana, Mercy, Cigna, Tricare, UMR and CoreSouce.

Insurance can be very confusing and varies dramatically by plan, so there’s not one “price” every person pays. It depends on how much a specific insurance plan covers. For example, someone who was hospitalized earlier in the year may have full inpatient and outpatient treatment covered for little or even no cost.

We can talk to your insurance company and explain everything to you. No one knows that you inquired. Just call (314) 664-9931 or fill out the form on the website. There is no commitment. 

The good news is that Sana Lake offers both inpatient and outpatient options. You can get unbiased advice when you call. 

Inpatient treatment is generally recommended if you’ve tried outpatient treatment before without success, if you are experiencing severe addiction issues, especially with substances like alcohol and benzodiazepines where withdrawal can be dangerous, or if you are ready to commit fully to recovery in a structured setting.

Outpatient treatment might be suitable if you have less severe dependency and strong support systems in your daily environment.

The most effective treatment is a combination — gong to inpatient rehab to detox and reset, then continuing outpatient therapy to help stay sober ongoing in the real world.

You don’t have to do both, but you do have to do something if you want to see real change.

The support after treatment is what sets Sana Lake apart. There are PHP and IOP options to continue intensive therapy while living at home, if needed. You also have outpatient, medication management, sober living and family programming that can be continued ongoing.

Once you are fully moved on from Sana Lake, you still have support for 5 years through the extended care program, which involves:

  • Robust, comprehensive member recovery plans supported by our Peer Recovery Coaches for up to 5 years.
  • Weekly Members for Life events to strengthen their connection with other recovering members, family, and friends.
  • Extended care meetings and special programs to help individual members sustain Recovery for Life. Helping members connect with the community of recovery.” 

Getting started is as simple as a friendly conversation to see if our treatment options are a good fit for you. You’ll speak with someone who has personal experience with drug or alcohol challenges—ensuring a judgment-free discussion.

Deciding to pursue treatment is completely your decision; you’ll never be pressured. If you decide to proceed, we’ll discuss insurance details with you upfront and can schedule you’re arrival. Don’t worry, it’s not a scary process!
