What are the treatment options available in Union City?

By integrating treatments, the hidden causes of drug addiction can be addressed and healed. Through learning natural coping mechanisms you can overcome substance abuse while treating the obvious symptoms of addiction.

Private Residential Programs

A residential rehab program requires you to live at the rehab facility and receive all your treatment at the property. Having success to daily support and addiction treatment is one of the biggest benefits.

There is huge value in taking yourself away from the home environment and becoming fully focused in the treatment program, because you are not vulnerable to the triggering environments that may cause you to abuse drugs. By having an environment around you that is supportive, the possibility of relapse is reduced and you are more likely to complete your residential rehab program. Residential treatment programs are useful for individuals with intense drug or alcohol dependencies, co-occurring disorders or dual diagnosis. You can begin the initial steps to a sober life by taking part in an inpatient program, but to overcome the challenges of the first year of addiction recovery, you must work at it constantly. Upon completion of your residential program, you have to consider what you want from your new life, as you focus on becoming more independent.

Sober Living Programs

Sober living rehab programs are designed to help you to have more stability in your life, through guidance and supportive structures. These programs comprise of:

  1. Daily guidance from a house manager
  2. Creating guidelines to manage your behavior in recovery
  3. Guiding you to build positive relationships with peers who are having similar challenges to you

Detox Only Programs

The need for drug and alcohol detox from your system is the first stage of rehab, because it removes traces of the substance and puts an end to your physical dependence. You usually develop withdrawal symptoms as a natural reaction to the absence of drugs or alcohol in your body. Withdrawal symbolizes the beginning of the process of rehab, and should always be followed up by overcoming the primary reasons for your addiction, to avoid repeating the same pattern of behaviors.

Once alcohol or drugs have been removed from your system you may develop cravings for it, including some withdrawal symptoms for a period afterwards. In rehab therapy you will develop the coping skills for long-term recovery, so that you can limit the possibilities of relapse in the future.

Outpatient Programs

Outpatient treatment programs are flexible because you can continue your work or life obligations, while visiting the rehab facility for treatments.

Outpatient programs help with:

  1. Education about substance misuse
  2. Counseling and therapy by means of group support or one-on-one sessions – The required duration of outpatient treatment is three months and it could be extended to longer than a year, this is based on your personal needs.

Paying for Private Treatment

If you decide to pursue private treatment, you can start the process by making a claim via your healthcare provider or pay the costs directly. Typically, insurance providers will cover the costs of rehab, at least partially, including a drug or alcohol detox regime, treatment program, and relapse prevention programs. The amount of cover offered by your policy is set by your provider and the terms of your policy. We recommend that you confirm the amount covered for treatment prior to enrolling for treatment.

To find out what you could qualify for, visit our Verify Your Insurance page here – https://www.unitedrecoveryca.com/verify-your-insurance/. If you don’t get cover from your insurance provider, you will be responsible for paying directly for your treatment. In some cases, it may be possible to opt in to a payment plan if the total cost is a barrier to you receiving treatment.

State Funded Programs

If you have fallen victim to substance use disorder and do not have the resources to pay privately for it, you can apply for a state-funded treatment program. These programs operate via Medicaid and federal/state budgets to facilitate recovery through:

  1. Safe & confidential medical detox
  2. Rehab treatment programs which includes aftercare and support

If you would like to participate in a state-funded treatment program you need to provide proof that you reside in a low income household or do not have a private healthcare policy:

  1. Proof of residence
  2. Proof of your financial situation
  3. Your medical history and details around your substance misuse
  4. Proof that you have the legal right to live in the US

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Union City

Remaining active in addiction recovery can feel hard once you leave the rehab center. During your stay, you have been in a controlled and safe environment, supported by professionals. 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. Long term sobriety is more difficult to maintain when you have had a severe dependency and do not have social support when you leave rehab. Relapse is a possibility without the right aftercare and support groups to help you navigate your new life.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs

Unfortunately Relapse may happen in up to 60% of cases, and due mostly to the unpredictability of life outside of rehab, having relapse prevention & support is an integral part of your journey in recovery.
