Private Residential Programs
When staying on the same property that you are receiving your addiction treatments in, you are said to be in a residential rehab program. One of the biggest pros is access to 24/7 treatment and addiction specialists.
If you stay at a rehab center you are free from many of the stressors in your home environment that could encourage your substance abuse. Completing your residential rehab program and avoiding relapse is considerably easier when you stay in a secure and supportive environment.
If you struggle with co-occurring illnesses, dual diagnosis or a strong dependency, an inpatient program is better suited to meet your rehab needs. A residential program will support you with getting sober, however maintaining sobriety requires persistent effort as the first year of recovery are usually challenging. Upon completion of your inpatient treatment program, you must transition towards more independence as you build goals for your new life.

Sober Living Programs
Support and guidance are key to a sober living program to help you control your future better. Sober living programs often have:
- A house manager who will visit you regularly
- Guiding you on the right way to behave in recovery
- Fostering necessary relationships with others in recovery who understand your experiences
The flexibility of outpatient programs means that you do not have to stop going to work or attending family commitments, as you can come to the treatment center and undergo regular treatments at your own pace.
Outpatient programs usually provide you with:
- Education about substance misuse
- Counseling and therapy by means of group settings or one-on-one sessions – The minimum duration of an outpatient program is three months and continue for longer than a year, this is based on your individual requirements.
Detox Only Programs
With the help of a medically-assisted detox you can rid the substance from your body in a safe way and put an end to to physical dependence. Withdrawing from drugs or alcohol is the body’s natural response to detox, as it gets used to operating without substances. After this you will move forward in your rehab journey, as you come to terms with the root causes for your addiction, helping you cope and avoid it in the future.
Many substances drive symptoms of withdrawal and cravings for a long time after they have been cleared from your system. Rehab teaches you important skills to take into your new life so that you limit the risk of relapse.
Paying for Private Treatment
If you do proceed with private treatment, you can contact your healthcare provider to make a claim or pay with your own funds. Most insurance companies will contribute to some of the costs associated with addiction rehab, including a medically-managed detox, rehab treatment and medical supplies, as well as aftercare support. Your provider’s terms and conditions will determine how much cover you can claim for.
It is always advised that you find out about the amount you can claim before 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 do not claim from your insurance provider you must pay for your treatment programme. Some facilities may provide payment plans to clients who find the costs unaffordable upfront.

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Colusa
You may undergo some initial challenges once you leave rehab. At the rehab center the environment was safe and you had professional support. When you leave, you may encounter new challenges or triggers that test your coping skills in ways you may not have anticipated.
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 can occur when you don’t have aftercare to support you in your new-found sobriety.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs
An aftercare program is a resource to support your recovery when you go back to your daily life. Because no one can predict what might happen from one day to the next, an estimate of 60% of clients in recovery may relapse, making relapse prevention & aftercare an invaluable feature of recovery.
When your rehab program draws to an end, we will help identify the therapies and counseling most supportive of your long-term recovery and any appropriate aftercare plan will be designed to assist you. After finishing your rehab treatment program you will become eligible to join an alumni community program so you can stay close to staff and ex-clients.
You can come to addiction recovery events, join meetings and receive support and encouragement from other individuals who are also in long-term sobriety. We encourage you to consider offering support to other members who are part of your network if that feels right.
Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
Through support group meetings you can create a support structure that is important to your long-term sobriety. Support groups like AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) and NA (Narcotics Anonymous) offer ongoing support utilizing the 12 steps and group sessions.
During meetings, individual members will share their stories and learn valuable insights from others. Friendship, empowerment and taking responsibility for our actions are key to long-term recovery, and meetings provide many with the necessary tools to stay sober.
Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction
Addiction impacts on those living in the household to different degrees. Help and support is just as vital for the family members as it is for the person with the substance use disorder. By a family support group, you can manage stress more effectively, and be able to provide better to your loved one in recovery.
Family members will benefit from participating in support groups such as:
- Parents of Addicted Loved Ones
- SMART Recovery Family & Friends
- NAMI Family Support Groups
- Families Anonymous
