What are the treatment options available in Pleasanton?

Integrated rehab is typically the ideal manner in which to deal with the root issues of alcohol and drug dependencies.
Although addiction symptoms need to be overcome, life skills must also be learnt in order to focus on the main causes of your dependency.

Private Residential Programs

Residential rehab programs require you to live at the rehab center and have your treatments on-site. One of the key benefits is access to daily treatment and care.

There is significant value in taking yourself away from the home environment and becoming fully immersed in the addiction treatment program, because you are not exposed to the triggers and stressors that may have caused you to abuse drugs. When you reside in a safe and secure environment you can safeguard yourself from relapse and improve the chances of finishing your addiction treatment program. A residential addiction treatment program delivers the best solution when you have a dual diagnosis, a complex substance dependency or co-occurring disorders. An inpatient treatment program will support you with getting sober, however maintaining sobriety requires persistent effort as the early stages of recovery can be hard for many people. Once you have finished your residential treatment programe you must focus on becoming more independent and set new goals and challenges.

Sober Living Programs

Sober living programs are structured with the required guidance to help recovering individuals achieve what they want from their life without drugs or alcohol. They guide you through:

  1. A house manager who checks up on you regularly
  2. Guiding you on how to behave in recovery
  3. Fostering necessary relationships with others in recovery who can relate to your experiences

Outpatient Programs

By enrolling in an outpatient program you have more flexibility, because you can visit the rehab center for treatment weekly and maintain important work or other commitments.

Outpatient programs offer recovery services through:

  1. Education focusing on your drug abuse
  2. Counseling and talking therapies through the use of group interventions and one-to-one sessions with a skilled addiction specialist. – Outpatient programs will run from three months to a year, and your individual needs will determine the necessary duration of treatment.

Detox Only Programs

The initial stage of any rehab program is detoxification, which eliminates all traces of substances from your body and addresses your physical dependency on it.

As your body gets used to functioning without the substance in your body, you may experience the symptoms of withdrawal. Withdrawal marks the start of the rehabilitation process, and needs to be followed up by dealing with the root reasons for your addiction, to avoid a repeat of the same negative cycle of behaviors.

Once the substance has been eliminated from your system you may still experience cravings for it, along with symptoms of withdrawal for a period afterwards. Rehab teaches you life-changing skills that are designed so that you reduce the risk of relapse.

Paying for Private Treatment

If you decide to go ahead with private rehab, you will need to fund it yourself or make a claim through your health insurance provider. Many insurance companies will provide cover for some of the costs of rehab, including detox, a rehab program, and any interventions you may need. Your provider along with policy terms and conditions will provide details on how much cover you can claim for.

It is always advised that you inquire about the amount you can claim prior to enrolling in a rehab program. You can visit our Verify Your Insurance page – https://www.unitedrecoveryca.com/verify-your-insurance/ for more details on the cover you have access to.

If you choose not to claim from your insurance provider, you are responsible for the cost of your treatment. A number of treatment facilities provide payment plans to clients so that the cost can be spread out.

State Funded Programs

If you want to address your substance or alcohol problems but you are unable to pay for private treatment, you can apply for a state-funded rehabilitation program. With the help of federal and state budget funding, these programs may support your recovery by including:

  1. Medically supervised drug or alcohol detox
  2. Treatment services and aftercare support

State-funded treatment programs are designed to help individuals with little disposable income or those with little to no health insurance. To enroll you will need:

  1. Proof of low income
  2. Proof of where you live
  3. Your personal medical records regarding your addiction
  4. Proof of legal US residence

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Pleasanton

Leaving a rehab center and returning home can prove challenging for people in early recovery. When you leave, you may encounter new challenges or triggers that test your coping skills in ways you may not have anticipated. During your stay, you have been in a controlled and safe environment, supported by professionals. In our experience, clients with intense dependencies and those who do not develop the necessary support structure find long term recovery more difficult when they leave rehab. Relapse can happen if you don’t have the appropriate aftercare or support to guide you into your new future.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs

An aftercare program continues to provide recovery support when you return to your home environment. Unfortunately, relapse rates can be as high as 60%, and because life can be stressful, relapse prevention & support is an essential tool to support your recovery in the long-term.

When your program is close to completion, we will help identify the therapies and counseling that is useful to your long-term recovery and any appropriate aftercare provisions will be designed to assist you.

One of the many benefits of completing rehab is entering an alumni community program, where you can liaise with former clients and staff as part of a recovery community. This fantastic network provides you with access to our social events, as well as ongoing support and encouragement from other ex-clients in recovery. You may also reciprocate in the program by supporting other people if you like.

Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)

With the help of support group participation you can enable a support structure that is conducive to your long-term sobriety. You can receive long-term recovery support if you find local groups like Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous by attending their 12-step meetings. You will be empowered from other people’s experiences and share your own unique experiences. By building friendships and committing to the 12-steps, those in recovery will feel empowered to take responsibility for their actions and protect those around them.

Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction

Some people living in an addicted household are damaged more than others. It isn’t just the person with the dependency who is impacted, other members of the family need help too.

By a family support group, families can learn to manage stressful situations more effectively, and be able to support your family member in recovery.

Your family may benefit from support groups such as:

  • Parents of Addicted Loved Ones
  • SMART Recovery Family & Friends
  • NAMI Family Support Groups
  • Al-Anon
  • Families Anonymous
  • Alateen
  • Nar-Anon
