Learn about how a sober life can be achieved if you or someone you love can apply a holistic addiction treatment approach.
What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?
When we refer to addiction ‘rehab’, it includes therapeutic interventions and medical treatments required to address addictions on substances such as opiates and illegal drugs including heroin. There is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to addiction rehab because it needs to be unique to your requirements and may incorporate detox, inpatient and outpatient care, and long-term aftercare programs.

A consolidated treatment approach is the most successful way to identify and address the prime causes of drug or alcohol dependencies.

Private Residential Programs
By remaining on the same property where you are obtaining 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 facility, you can remove yourself from vulnerabilities to stressors that may have influenced your decision to abuse substances or alcohol. If you reside in a safe and secure environment you can safeguard yourself from relapse and have a better chance of finishing your addiction treatment program. If you have a strong substance dependency, or suffer from a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder, a residential treatment program should be considered. We understand that the first few months of recovery are usually difficult and after a residential treatment program, you need to stay focused so that you can maintain your sobriety. On completion of your residential addiction treatment program, you must transition towards further independence as you consider your goals for your new sober life.

Detox Only Programs
A detox program is the first step in drug or alcohol rehab and is actioned to eliminate your physical dependence on a drug by removing all traces of it from your body. As your body stabilizes without having the drug it was dependent on, symptoms of withdrawal typically begin.
Once detox is complete you will press forward in your rehab journey, as you start to address the underlying causes that contributed to your addiction, to help you manage and avoid it in the future. Once alcohol or drugs have been detoxed from your system you may still experience cravings for it, including some withdrawal symptoms for for a few weeks.
You can lessen your risk of relapse by learning coping skills for long-term recovery success.
Outpatient rehabilitation programs are considered to be flexible by allowing you to have therapy at the treatment center while you continue your career or life obligations.

Paying for Private Treatment
If you opt for private treatment, you can contact your healthcare provider to make a claim or pay the costs directly. Many health insurance providers will cover some of the costs of rehab, which includes drug or alcohol detox, the rehab treatment program, medications and relapse prevention programs.
The amount of cover offered by your policy is set by your provider and the terms and conditions of your policy. Before enrolling in a treatment program, you should speak to your insurance provider to learn how much cover you can make a claim against. Our Verify Your Insurance page – https://www.unitedrecoveryca.com/verify-your-insurance/ can help you find out how much cover you can claim for.
If you do not want cover from your insurance provider, you will be responsible for paying the cost of treatment yourself. Many rehab centers offer payment plans to clients who cannot afford the full cost upfront.
State Funded Programs

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.
