What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?
When we refer to ‘rehab’ for addiction, it includes the psychological interventions and medical treatments needed to tackle dependencies on substances such as opiates and illegal drugs including meth. Rehab treatment provides higher chances of long term recovery success when it is customized to the individual needs of the client and incorporates medically-assisted detoxification, inpatient or outpatient programs, and relapse management techniques such as aftercare.

A consolidated treatment approach is the most successful way to tackle the root causes of substance and alcohol dependencies. Learning coping strategies to treat the primary causes of your substance misuse is just as crucial as treating the symptoms of addiction.
Private Residential Programs
Residential treatment programs require you to stay at the treatment center and undergo your treatments on-site. It is undoubtedly beneficial to have round-the-clock care and treatment options. By displacing yourself from your home and living at the treatment centre you will protect yourself from the stressors that contributed to your drug or alcohol abuse.
When you reside in a safe and secure environment you can safeguard yourself from relapse and improve the chances of finishing your treatment program. Inpatient treatment programs are useful for individuals with intense alcohol or drug dependencies, co-occurring illnesses or dual diagnosis.
You can take the first steps to recovery by taking part in an inpatient rehab program, however to overcome the challenges of the first year of addiction recovery, you must work at it constantly. Once you have completed your residential addiction treatment program you will want to be more autonomous and set life goals and new challenges.
Do You Need Help?
We work together towards sobriety.
Sober Living Programs
Sober living programs are designed with the required guidance to help those recovering from addiction achieve what they want from their new life without substance dependence. They support you through:

Outpatient programs offer addiction recovery through:
- Education about substance use disorders
- Therapy and counseling involving group therapy and one-to-one interventions – The duration of an outpatient program is customized to your circumstances and lasts from three months to more than a year.
Detox Only Programs
A detox program is the first step in rehab and is done to break your physical dependence on a drug by removing all traces of it from your system. You typically experience withdrawal symptoms as a normal response to the absence of drugs or alcohol in your system.
This is just the start of the rehabilitation process, the next stage is to tackle and address the underlining problems that lead to your addiction, so that those same issues do not repeat. It is common to encounter withdrawal and cravings for a short duration after the substance has been flushed from your system. You can reduce the risk of relapse by building coping skills for long-term abstinence.
Paying for Private Treatment
If you have chosen to continue with private rehab, you will need to pay with your own funds or make a claim via your health insurance provider. Fortunately, most health insurance providers typically cover at least parts of your rehab treatment, such as detox, rehabilitation, medicines that are prescribed and relapse support.
The type of cover provided will depend on the fine print of your policy as well as your provider’s terms and conditions. It is a good idea to inquire about your cover prior to enrolling in a rehab program. By visiting our Verify Your Insurance page – https://www.unitedrecoveryca.com/verify-your-insurance/, you can learn what cover you can claim for.
If you choose not to claim from your policy, you are responsible for the cost of your treatment. Some treatment facilities offer payment options to clients so that they can pay for treatment in instalments.

You can come to special events, join meetings and get advice and encouragement from other former clients who are also in recovery as well. If you want to, you can also reciprocate in the program by supporting other people if you like.
