If you or someone you love is struggling with drug or alcohol dependence, it may seem like everything seems so hopeless and finding it difficult to know where to start. You can treat addiction although it is a disease, and long term recovery is possible through professional rehab intervention methods.
This Guide will explain integrated approaches to addiction treatment and how you or your loved one can begin and maintain recovery from addiction.
What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?
The term addiction ‘rehabilitation’ is applicable to all of the medical and therapeutic treatments used to help people who have dependencies on illegal substances including heroin, or prescribed medications such as benzodiazepines. There is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to addiction rehab because it should be tailored to your lifestyle and may incorporate medical detox, inpatient and outpatient support, and long-term relapse prevention programs.

What are the treatment options available in Fremont
Through integrating treatments, the primary causes of drug addiction can be addressed and healed. It is crucial to treat the symptoms of addiction, but coping strategies need to be considered, in order for you to deal with the problems that lead to the substance dependency.
Private Residential Programs
A residential rehab program requires you to live at the rehab facility and receive all your treatment within the property. One of the key benefits is access to daily treatment and addiction specialists.
Moving out of your home environment and entering a rehab center will cushion you against triggers that negatively impact your substance abuse.
You are less susceptible to relapse when you complete your addiction treatment program in a controlled center where the environment is supportive. Residential treatment programs are generally most effective if your dependency is chronic or severe, or if you struggle with co-occurring illnesses or have a dual diagnosis.
Recovery from addiction is attainable if you partake in a residential treatment program, but if you expect to maintain sobriety you are going to need to rise above the difficulties that are associated with the early stages of recovery. After you complete your residential addiction treatment program your priority will be on transitioning to greater independence as you focus on what you want from your new sober life.
Do You Need Help?
We can help you recover.
Detox Only Programs
Most patients require a medical detox to commence substance rehabilitation, as it tackles physical dependence on substances by removing them from your system.
Withdrawing from drugs or alcohol is the body’s main response to detoxification, as it gets used to working without drugs or alcohol. This starts the process of the recovery process, following which you will identify and tackle the latent causes of your addictive behavior to avoid repeating the same cycle.
It is common to confront withdrawal and cravings for a while after the substance has been eliminated from your body. You can limit the chances of relapse by learning coping skills for long-term abstinence.
Sober Living Programs
Sober living programs are designed with the required guidance to help those recovering from addiction get what they want from their new life. They help you through:
- Support every day from a house manager
- Establishing parameters for good recovery behavior
- Nurturing supportive friendships with others who may be working through the same types of experiences

Paying for Private Treatment
Private treatment costs should be settled self-funded or claimed via your healthcare policy. Many insurance companies will contribute to some of the costs of rehab, including medical detox, rehab programs, and any aftercare provisions you may require. The amount covered for your rehab treatment is dependent on your provider and the terms of your policy.
We suggest you understand how much cover you are entitled to prior to enrolling in a program. You can visit our Verify Your Insurance page – https://www.unitedrecoveryca.com/verify-your-insurance/ for more details on the cover you can claim for. Clients will be responsible for the cost of treatment if they do not claim via their insurance provider. Some rehab facilities can provide a payment plan to those who can’t afford to pay the whole cost of rehab.
State Funded Programs
If you want to address your substance or alcohol addiction but have limited resources to afford private rehab, you should consider a state-funded rehabilitation program. Using funds from a combination of state, federal and Medicaid budgets, these treatment programs help to remove financial barriers to rehab by offering:

Recovery support groups including AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) and NA (Narcotics Anonymous) offer regular support with the help of the 12-step model and regular meetings. During meetings, individual members share their stories and learn from the experiences of others. Through companionship and staying committed to the program, individuals in recovery can feel able to take responsibility for themselves and protect those that love them most.
