What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?
The term substance ‘rehab’ is applied to all of the medical and psychological treatments used to help people who are struggling with dependencies on recreational, illegal and prescription substances.

Identifying and healing the latent causes behind your substance or alcohol use disorder can be achieved through the use of an integrated treatment approach. Addiction symptoms should be treated but building new life skills encourages you to face the problems that caused your addiction to drugs or alcohol.
Private Residential Programs
When remaining on the same property that you are undergoing your rehab treatments in, you are part of a residential treatment program. One of the biggest pros is access to ongoing treatment and guidance. When you leave your home and move into a rehab center, you can remove yourself from vulnerabilities to stressors that influenced your decision to abuse drugs or alcohol.
By remaining in a controlled and supportive environment, you have a better chance of successfully completing your rehab program without relapse and its associated pitfalls. Residential rehab programs are recommended for those with serious alcohol or drug dependencies, co-occurring illnesses or dual diagnosis. Enrolling in a residential rehab program is an effective way to a sober life, and maintaining it requires ongoing focus because maintaining recovery is hard during the first year. After you finish your residential addiction treatment program your priority will be your transition to greater independence as you start to think about what you want from your life free from drugs or alcohol.

- Sending a house manager to see how you are doing daily

- Building on supportive and positive relations with others in recovery
Outpatient rehab programs are typically more flexible by allowing you to have therapy at the rehab center while you continue important work or life commitments.
Outpatient programs support you with:
- Education around substance misuse
- Counseling and therapy through group support or one-to-one sessions – The expected duration of an outpatient program is 3/4 months and continue for longer than a year, this depends on your own needs.
Detox Only Programs
The need for alcohol or drug detox from your system is the first phase of rehabilitation, as it removes the substance, putting an end to your physical dependence. You typically experience withdrawal symptoms as a natural reaction to the absence of drugs or alcohol in your system. This detox phase marks the start of your rehab journey, the next phase is to tackle and address the underlining causes of your addiction, so that those same patterns do not happen again.
A lot of drugs result in temporary cravings and withdrawal symptoms after you have completed detoxification. During rehab you will identify the coping skills for long-term recovery, so that you can limit the possibilities of relapse in the future.
Paying for Private Treatment
If you opt for private treatment, you can contact your healthcare provider to make a claim or pay the cost of treatment with your own funds.
Many health insurance companies will contribute to a portion of the costs associated with a rehab program, which could help with a detox plan, therapy program and aftercare support. The amount of cover you can claim will be unique based on your provider and policy. You should identify how much cover you can access before signing up for a treatment program.
If you choose not to claim against your private health insurance, you will be liable to pay for your treatment program directly. Some treatment providers may provide payment plans for individuals who may find the costs unaffordable upfront.
State Funded Programs
If you want to trackle your substance or alcohol addiction but due to limited resources cannot pay for private rehab, you may be a candidate for a state-funded rehabilitation program. Thanks to funds provided from Medicaid and state/federal budgets, these sorts of programs can subsidize your recovery including:
- Programs for a safe detox (medically-supervised if required.

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Newark
The early stages of recovery can be difficult when you complete your treatment program. You had the benefits of professional support in a controlled environment at the rehab center. Your coping skills will be put to the test when you leave rehab, as you may experience some challenges that you still need to learn to deal with. Long term recovery is more challenging if you have a severe dependency or if you return to your new life without social support structures in place. If you don’t have aftercare support or guidance in the initial stages of recovery, relapse can occur.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs
Aftercare programs extend your rehab program once you return to your daily life. Unfortunately relapse can happen in 60% of cases, and because of the unpredictability of life outside of rehab, having relapse prevention & support is an integral part of your long term recovery. As you approach the end of your rehab program, you will need to consider the therapies and services that will help you with your long-term recovery, and we will create aftercare packages to protect you. After you have completed your rehab program you will become eligible for joining an alumni community program so you can remain in contact with staff and others in recovery.
This fantastic network allows you access to our social events, which also provides ongoing support and mentorship from other ex-clients in recovery. You can also reciprocate in the program by supporting other people if you like.
Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
Support groups continue to be an important component of long-term recovery because social structures enable long-lasting sobriety. A couple of the most used support groups are Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, which benefit from the 12-steps to support people in recovery via regular meetings. During meetings, other members will share their experiences and empower others. Friendship, empowerment and taking responsibility for our actions are key to long-term recovery, and support groups provide many with the necessary tools to stay sober.
