What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?
Addiction ‘rehab’ is a broad term that explains the psychotherapeutic and medical treatments that are used to help people heal their dependencies on prescription drugs or illegal drugs including meth. Rehab approaches are more successful when they are personalized to your individual needs, and may include inpatient programs, outpatient programs, medical detoxes and aftercare.

Private Residential Programs
A residential rehab program is when you live at the rehab facility and receive all your treatment within the property. Its main benefit is that you can receive holistic treatment and support day by day.
By displacing yourself from your home and living at the treatment facility you can safeguard yourself against the stressors that lead to your substance abuse. If you reside in a safe and supportive environment you can protect yourself from relapse and increase the likelihood of finishing your addiction treatment program. Residential programs are generally most effective when your drug or alcohol dependency is chronic and complex in nature, or if you struggle with co-occurring disorders or have a dual diagnosis.
Taking part in a residential treatment program is the most effective way to treat addiction, and maintaining it will require continued focus because addiction recovery is difficult during the first few months. Once you have completed your residential program you will need to become more autonomous and set new goals and challenges.

Sober Living Programs
Sober living programs are structured with the needed guidance to help people in recovery get what they want from their new life without substance dependence. They support you through:
- Round-the-clock check-ins from the house manager
- Creating guidelines to change your behavior in recovery
- Helping you to build important relationships with peers who have similar experiences to you
Detox Only Programs
Most clients will need a medical detox to initiate drug rehab, as it tackles physical dependence on substances by ridding it from your system. During the detox phase you will go through withdrawal symptoms as your body starts to function without the substance it was dependent on.
This starts the process of the recovery journey, following which you will identify and deal with the root causes of your addictive behavior to avoid repeating those same cycles. It is normal to experience withdrawal and cravings for a few weeks after the substance has been eliminated from your body.
You can reduce the risk of relapse by developing coping skills to apply to your new life.
Outpatient programs offer greater flexibility because you can continue work commitments and live at home, but you attend the rehab facility for any treatments.
Outpatient programs assist you with:
- Education on abusing substances
- Group therapy and individual counseling as drivers for therapeutic intervention – You must be enrolled in an outpatient program for a minimum of three months, and may remain in it for longer than a year if required.
Paying for Private Treatment
If you decide to pursue private treatment, you can make a claim through your healthcare policy or pay with your own funds. Most insurance providers will contribute to at least part of the costs associated with addiction rehab, such as a medically-supervised detox, rehab treatment and medical supplies, as well as aftercare support. The amount you will be able to claim will be determined by your policy rules and your provider.
We suggest you understand how much cover you have before enrolling in a program. By visiting our Verify Your Insurance page – https://www.unitedrecoveryca.com/verify-your-insurance/, you can find out what cover you are entitled to.
If you opt out of cover from your insurance provider, you will be responsible for paying the cost of treatment yourself. Many rehab centers provide payment options to clients who cannot afford the full cost upfront.
State Funded Programs
If you have a substance use disorder but have limited funds to pay privately for it, you may search for a state-funded addiction treatment program. Assistance can be provided with funds allocated from Medicaid and federal/state budgets, state-funded programs can subsidize your recovery with:
