What are the treatment options available in Castro Valley

Through consolidating treatments, the hidden causes of drug dependence can be addressed and overcome.
Substance dependence should be treated but building new life skills encourages you to overcome the problems that caused your drug or alcohol addiction.

Private Residential Programs

Residential treatment programs require you to stay at the rehab center and have your treatments on-site. It is very beneficial to have access to round-the-clock care and treatment provisions.

When you reside at a treatment facility you will be away from many of the stressors in your home environment that could encourage your substance abuse. Completing your residential rehab program and avoiding relapse is far easier if you remain in a protective and controlled environment. If you have co-occurring illnesses, dual diagnosis or a strong dependency on drugs or alcohol, an inpatient program is ideally suited to meet your treatment needs.

You can begin the initial steps to sobriety by enrolling in an inpatient program, however to get through the challenges of the first year of addiction recovery, you need to work at it constantly. When your residential program is finished you will have the skills to be more independent and your focus will be on the things you want to do with your new life.

Do You Need Help?

We can help you recover.

Sober Living Programs

Sober living rehab programs are designed to help you to have more stability in your life, with guidance and a support structure. These programs feature:

  1. Guidance every day from a house manager
  2. Building boundaries for consistent recovery behavior
  3. Fostering important friendships with others in recovery who will be working through similar types of experiences

Outpatient Programs

Outpatient programs are easy to adjust to as you can continue any work/life commitments and still undergo treatments, by attending the rehab facility at your own pace.

Outpatient programs support you with:

  1. Education around substance misuse
  2. Therapeutic support and counseling in the form of group therapy and one-on-one interventions – The length of any outpatient treatment is unique to your situation and lasts between three months to over a year.

Detox Only Programs

The process of alcohol or drug detox from your system is the first step towards rehabilitation, as it rids the body of the substance and puts an end to your physical dependence. You typically develop withdrawal symptoms as a normal response to the absence of drugs or alcohol in your system.

This initiates the rehab journey, which continues as you tackle the reasons for your addiction in order to avoid repeating the cycle long-term. Quite a few drugs cause ongoing cravings and withdrawal symptoms after you have completed the detox phase. Rehab therapy will help you master coping skills to take into your new life so that you protect yourself from relapse.

Paying for Private Treatment

Private treatment will need to be settled yourself or claimed through your healthcare policy. Most insurance providers should contribute to some of the costs associated with addiction rehab, such as a medically-supervised detox, rehab therapy and medication, as well as aftercare support. The type of cover provided will depend on the fine print of your policy as well as your provider’s terms of agreement.

Before you enroll in a program, you should always check how much cover you can make a claim against. Our Verify Your Insurance page – https://www.unitedrecoveryca.com/verify-your-insurance/ – will determine the amount of cover you can claim against. If you don’t claim from private health insurance, the cost of your treatment needs to be covered directly. Some addiction treatment centers will offer a payment plan to those who are struggling to pay the full amount.

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Castro Valley

Maintaining addiction recovery can be difficult once you leave the rehab center. At rehab you were in a professionally supported, safe environment. As you adjust to life after rehab it is very likely that you will find yourself in situations that you still need to learn to address. Clients who had severe dependencies find long term recovery more difficult when they leave rehab if they do not have a social support structure. Relapse can happen if you don’t have the appropriate aftercare or support to guide you into your new future.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs

Aftercare programs are an extension of rehab once you leave the rehab center. As many as 60% of individuals in recovery relapse due to unpredictable changes they experience, taking part in aftercare can boost your chance of long-term sobriety.

After the successful completion of your rehab program you will become eligible to join an alumni community program so you can remain in contact with staff and others in recovery. This fantastic network gives you access to our special events, which includes ongoing support and encouragement from other members in recovery. We encourage you to consider supporting other former clients in your network if you choose to.

By building friendships and committing to the programme, those in recovery can feel empowered to take responsibility for themselves and protect those that love them most.

Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction

Some individuals living in an addicted household are damaged more than other individuals. Support and guidance is just as crucial for all family members as it is for the individual with the substance use disorder.
