What are the treatment options available in Dublin?

Integrated addiction treatment is usually the ideal manner in which to overcome the root causes of alcohol and drug dependencies. Utilizing coping mechanisms to treat the primary causes of your substance misuse is just as important as treating the symptoms of addiction.

Private Residential Programs

If you stay within the facility where you are receiving addiction treatment, you are taking part in a residential treatment program. The key benefit is the ability to receive holistic support and treatment every day. Leaving your home environment and entering a rehab facility will cushion you against triggers that impact your use of substances.

If you stay in a safe and secure environment you can safeguard yourself against relapse and have a better chance of finishing your rehab program. If you struggle with co-occurring disorders, dual diagnosis or an intense dependency, a residential program is best suited to meet your recovery needs. Addiction recovery is achievable if you take part in a residential rehab program, however if you wish to maintain sobriety you will have to rise above the difficulties that are associated with the first year of recovery. After you complete your residential treatment program your priority will be your transition to greater independence as you focus on what you want from your life free from drugs or alcohol.

Do You Need Help?

We work together towards recovery.

Sober Living Programs

Sober living programs are structured with the required support to help people in recovery get what they want from their life without drugs or alcohol. They guide you through:

  1. Sending a house manager to check in on you every day
  2. Prescribing the kinds of behaviors that are needed in recovery
  3. Developing supportive and meaningful relations with other peers in recovery

Outpatient Programs

Outpatient programs are less intensive to adjust to as you can maintain any work/life commitments and still receive treatments, by coming to the rehab center weekly.

Outpatient programs offer support through:

  1. Education about your drug abuse
  2. Talking therapy and counseling through the use of group sessions and individual sessions with a trained addiction specialist. – Outpatient programs should run from a few months to a year, and your personal needs will determine the necessary duration of treatment.

Detox Only Programs

Most clients will need a medical detox to initiate drug rehab, as it addresses physical dependencies on substances by removing it from your body.

As your body becomes accustomed to not the substance it was dependent on, you will start to have withdrawal symptoms. This is only the start of your rehabilitation process, and the next steps work to tackle and heal the underlining problems that lead to your addiction, so that the pattern does not happen again.

Many substances result in withdrawal and cravings for some time after they have been eliminated from your body. Your odds of relapse are limited as you develop the necessary skills required for long-term success.

Paying for Private Treatment

If you opt for private treatment, you can use your health insurance to make a claim or pay the cost of rehab with your own funds. The good news is that most health insurance providers typically cover at least parts of your rehab treatment, which includes detox, rehab therapy, medication and relapse support. The amount of cover offered will change depending on the agreement details of your policy as well as your provider’s.

You should confirm the amount you can claim on your policy before you take part in a program. By visiting our Verify Your Insurance page – https://www.unitedrecoveryca.com/verify-your-insurance/, you can find out what cover you can claim for.

If you opt out of cover from your insurance provider, you will be responsible for paying the cost of treatment yourself. Many rehab centers will consider payment plans to clients who may struggle to pay for treatment upfront.

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Dublin

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. If you had a severe dependency or if you leave rehab without the appropriate social support, you will find long term recovery to be more challenging.
